  1. I am still working on quite a large project on the Staniforths of Eckington/Mosborough, Hackenthorpe/Beighton and the surrounding areas and all lines lead to a Henry Stannyforthe that was buried at St. James Norton in 1575, on his son William's baptism from 1560, father 'Henrici' is listed as being of 'Heardynges' which I've always presumed was Herdings Farm. I've attached two images, one is of the transcript and one is the original document, William/Willmus's baptism is 2 lines above the bold line near the centre. Son William later marries Elizabeth Thorpe son of Christopher Thorpe who was Church warden at one point. I have seen certain trees that list Henry's father as being Thomas Staniforth b 1513 but cannot find any proof of this.
  2. Heathfield Road at Frecheville has memorial tree's but has since had a proper War Memorial put in place to soldiers from the area, I'm not sure if the trees actually got taken down or if they still stand but you can see them on Google Street View going up the road from Birley Moor Road.
  3. Can someone with access to the 1939 Register please look this up for me: It should be Annie Shadbolt with husband Joseph. Thanks in advance
  4. Does anyone know where Kirk Alley was in Hackenthorpe, on the 1891 Census there's residences on Kirk Alley, Hackenthorpe, Beighton but I can't seem to find mention of it anywhere on any old maps,
  5. That's a brilliant map! It's amazing, I grew up in Hackenthorpe and never knew there was a house behind the trees there at the side of the pub, even my grandad had no idea and he remembers the blacksmith, horses going up and down Main street etc, but he hadn't a clue where Ivy Cottage was
  6. Sorry to resurrect such an old thread but after finally getting in touch with Clive to let him know he's my distant Australian Cousin, I wanted to let everyone know where the mysterious Ivy Cottage is at Hackenthorpe. If you know The Sportsman Inn on Main Street, there is an area to its left that looks to be a large group of trees, however in the dead center you will notice what looks to be a bit of a driveway, if you go up there, you will find Ivy Cottage. You would not know the house was there if you were on the road, if you look at Google Maps you can just about make out the roof.
  7. Sorry Syrup, I should have read the actual articles, that definitely could be him, I do know there was 2 Robert Stannyforthe's in Ford at that time, when my Robert moved there, there was already a Robert Stannyforthe in the hamlet strange as it seems. But it's hard to differentiate between the two, this definitely could be my Robert
  8. That tree is incorrect, he has Robert of Ford being born after his father Williams death, I am aware that there were two Robert Stannyforthe's at Ford at the same time back then, this is noted in a few books so I believe he has the wrong one. Also any of those records prior to Henry's burial in 1575 seem off to me, Thomas living to 101 in the 1500s??
  9. Syrup, I'm aware of the 1800s Eckington Robert but haven't found where he ties in just yet, he's one of the Eckington lot I haven't tied in just yet
  10. Thank you both for the help, I am very suspicious of that and any tree so will have to do some research, that Henry burial from 1575 is as far as my (Now rather large) Staniforth tree goes, and I've tied in multiple branches across America, Australia and closer to home so I'm surprised I haven't come across those earlier ancestors myself.. Will investigate anyway and let you know what I come up with!
  11. Never even considered Nottingham, thanks for the idea, I'm already going to the Sheffield and Matlock archives when I'm home so will add Nottingham to the list
  12. Anybody know anything about the Boot and Shoe, I've always presumed it was the Blue Bell's original name. One of my great uncles James Staniforth was landlord there before moving down to The New Inn (now Hackenthorpe Vets) and then his son George took over the New Inn (This is back in the 1800s). I've found mentions of it in Newspapers at various dates in the 1800s and the first mention of Blue Bell appears to be 1874.
  13. I'm trying to find mentions of Robert Staniforth, son of William Staniforth and Elizabeth Thorpe, he has been refered to as Robert Staniforth of Ford which is obviously the small hamlet just south of Ridgeway that has Ford Farm. His father William was baptized 1560 Norton (I have this record) and he married Elizabeth Thorpe who was daughter of Christopher Thorpe, baptized 1581. William has burial at Eckington on 16 AUG 1630 and Elizabeth's is 1627. I believe Robert must have been baptized before the Eckington Records seem to start, so it would have been in the early 1600s, his brother William married Dorothy Monk (I have both of their wills), another brother John of Sload Lane married a Sarah (No surname yet), he had another brother Samuel Stannyforthe, and two sisters Dorcas and Elizabeth Stannyforthe. I've tried searching the same books that I used to find mention of Henry Stannyforthe on Williams baptism in 1560 but no luck, the only mention I find of him is his name is mentioned in a Derbyshire book that refers to him as yeoman Robert Stannyforthe of the Ford.
  14. Does anyone know the best way to find out about the Landlord history of pubs, I've come to find my Staniforths owned various pubs over the years, some still around such as The George, Eckington, and some long gone such as The New Inn, Hackenthorpe and the old Blue Bell.
  15. Thanks Bonnie, I've discovered these weren't what I was looking for, I will be making a trip to the archives to look at the Court Rolls as well as the Alderson & Dust solicitors collection, there's a ton of letters and other documents related to the Staniforths that I'm interested in seeing, I was amazed when I saw the list of items they have and I saw personal letters and correspondences on there!
