Where is “New Grange”?
« on: Sunday 17 October 21 08:19 BST (UK) »
I have the baptism of a Joseph Wainman, the brother of my ancestor. The baptism took place at All Saints, Rotherham…

12 February 1730, Joseph the son of Joseph Wainman of New Grange, Officer of Excise

Joseph Sr had links to Silkstone, Wath upon Dearne and Ecclesfield but I’m really struggling to find out where New Grange was. Could it have been the name of his house or is it a town?

Thanks, it could well be! I don’t have a good understanding of the life of an excise officer but I presume they would have moved around a lot. If this is Joseph’s New Grange then I suppose he would have leased it from the Wade family.

I've found 3 baptisms and 1 burial for other "New Grange" families Rotherham Parish - 1727 - 1736.
Also, have found a reference to "New Grange (Novae Grange), Bramley". The problem is there is a Bramley near Leeds and a Bramley near Rotherham!!

The New Grange in Leeds seems to have been in Headingley so it makes more sense that Joseph Wainman was of New Grange in Bramley, Rotherham.
