Hi! We went back about six years ago, as we were passing whilst out on a drive. We drove up the drive and the owners we very pleased to hear that our Grandfather was the previous owner. They were very kind and let us look all around the house and the graveyard. A great trip down Memory Lane for us. My mother seems to thing that Grandpa did, in fact, take down part of the church towards the end of his time there...but we can't remember what happened to the school room that was on the side. When we revisited, there was a large garage built where the chapel had been...all very tastefully done...but a garage none-the-less!

Ah, so the chapel is no more. That's a shame. I didn't realise there was a school there as well. I am glad you managed to get to look round when you visited. I have seen what was the Moravian chapel in Kimbolton. Another building that has been turned into a dwelling.

The Moravian church has a fascinating history in Pertenhall. If I ever get to retire it would make a great retirement project to follow it all up.

Hi,

My Gt Grandparents were Moravian chapel people too from Pertenhall, and I notice you have their surname in your link (Reynolds).

My Gt Grandparents were Daniel and Emma (nee Mills), with my Grandad being James.

I have lot of information if you need it both my Mum and my brother in law have been to the chapel, and the owners very kindly let them uncover and take pictures of the gravestones.

One of my Grandads sisters lived in the cottages in the square, I remember visiting her when I was little

It would be great to understand our connection.

Regards

Alison

Hi Alison, I think we certainly have a link. When was your great grandfather born? I have a Daniel Reynolds in my tree born in 1876 in Pertenhall and married to Emma. He was my half first cousin 4 x removed. His father was James Reynolds born 1820. James was my half 3rd great grand uncle.
Does that ring any bells?? My 4th great grandfather was John Reynolds born in 1777 in Denford, and I am descended from his first marriage and I think you might be descended from his second marriage.

Best wishes

Hi Linda,

Yes that's my line. I'll see if my brother in law has any pictures of the gravestones he can share x

Hi Alison,
Thank you very much. Would be very interested in swapping info if that's ok.
I went to visit the Moravian church a few years back but didn't get the chance to go into the site. I know we have some relatives buried there, and I believe right up to the 1960s. I have seen some pictures of it when still in use.

Regards

Hi Linda,

John Reynolds born in Denford son of William and Susannah (nee Maycock) died in Pertenhall.

John married Elizabeth Tandey and then Jane Mumford.

John and Jane had James 1819 in Pertenhall

James married Martha Baxter (9 children) then Mary Fletcher (6 children)

Daniel (my Gt grandfather) was the 4th of the 6 children of James and Mary.

I'm sure just outside the village there is also a private burial plot that the Reynolds family own. I'll check with mum where it is.

Do you belong to ancestry Linda ?? Happy to share my tree as that's where I keep it

My Reynolds line goes back to 1698 (John Reynolds and Mary Hall)

Speak to you soon

Alison

Hi Alison,
That's exactly what I have, I didn't know about a burial plot though. That's interesting. I`m not with Ancestry at the moment, I have been in the past. My tree goes back to John Reynolds and Mary Hall which was research a cousin of mine did, and obviously you have been on the same trail.  :)
