Re: Giles HARTLEY - Born 1785 - Barnside

Cheryl Rasmuson
 

Hello! 

Sorry this is about a year and a half too late (hopefully you see it and it's still useful to you). 

Giles HARTLEY is my 5th Great Uncle. His brother, Richard HARTLEY is my direct descendant. My grandfather has Gile's bible in his possession which was given to him in 1840 as a token of his service to the Baptist Sunday School - Barnoldswick. He attended the Trinity Baptist Church in Colne where he was baptized. His father was James HARTLEY (there are so many Johns and James so this was really a pain to sort through) and his Mother was Elizabeth "Betty" HARTLEY (nee TAYLOR). 

As far as I can tell, and I'm still digging, Giles immigrated to Upper Canada sometime in the mid-1800s (likely around when the bible was presented to him) with his brothers Joseph, Richard and their families. They farmsteaded in Brant, Ontario, where many of their graves still exist (if the pictures are accurate...I haven't been out there myself yet). Giles had three children that made it to adulthood that I could confirm based off of census records: Joseph (born 1836), Robert (born 1839) and Margarette (born 1842). His wife was named Ann LEEMING (1806-1860). Giles died 24 FEB 1870 in Brant, county, Ontario, Canada.

I haven't had time to track down all of his descendants yet since I found all of this out only last week, but when I get more updates I can definitely share them. 

As for the HARTLEY family, I know they were in the Colne/Barnoldswick area for a very long time. I might have some descendants traced back to the late 1500's but I doubt the validity of the information when I'm not able to see any original sources. I can list the sources if you have better access, but I figured I'd just do an overview for now.

Re: Worsbrough - foundlings

jennyda2@...
 

Hi Lin,

you might find this site, see link below,  useful if you have not already explored it.  It is about the Foundling Hospital in London set up in the 18th century.  The main page explains about how the hospital came about and if you go to the page What is a Foundling in the right hand menu you find out more on the subject.  At that bottom of that page there is a link for finding out about past patients of this hospital.
https://foundlingmuseum.org.uk/about/our-history/

What I found interesting on that subsequent page was that there were so many babies being abandoned that the hospital tied a basket to the gate so that mother's could leave their baby in it more safely.   I suppose rather than just leave the child on someone's doorstep or in a cardboard box in the street, as happened to one man who was in recent episode of Long Lost family Born Without Trace, he was left in a corned beef box in the street during the 20th century. Times don't change that much. 

Regards
Jenny De Angelis

Hi all

 

Some of my husband’s family seem to have been sent from London to work in the mills, probably from a workhouse.

 

I found this in Google books and wondered if it would help explain a connection?

Worsbrough - foundlings

Lin Duke
 

I've come across something odd on an 1841 census entry: Ann Wildsmith (mother to Hannah), aged 86, occupation 'London Foundling', birth county Yorkshire.

Why would she have put this as an occupation?

Quite by chance in the PR burials for 1756 I noticed that there were 9 foundling burials on one page; one of them 'a foundling from London'.

Does anyone know how at least one if not two foundlings from London ended up in Worsbrough in the mid 1700's?

Re: Seeking info re Roger or Rodger CLAYTON?

Robert N. G. KEMSLEY <robtricia@...>
 

                Morning Jenny:

 

                Another new day and an attempt to catch up on my messages; due to lengthy ones yesterday; I only completed 3.

 

                When I catch up; I will do as you say; visit Ancestry and contact the tree owner.

                I’ve just visited the Family Tree you mention and without going into all the details; note there is no mention of William H H BUCKLEY’S 2nd Marriage and like all other such trees found; no mention of claimed Daughter Alice May BUCKLEY? But will again visit later.

 

                What is confusing is that sometimes it’s Roger and at other times Rodger?

 

                Yes: I’ve John James CLAYTON Married Jane STRIK, but no date or place as yet.

 

                Although the 1841 Census appears to be the correct one, but for the Stone Mason changing to a Shoemaker which seems a little odd; It now’s been revealed as incorrect in that Jane Died 1812 whereupon John remarried Ann HIBBERT and it is they who appear in the 1841 Census with John still a Stonemason with 6 children born to Ann.

 

                As yet; I’ve not visited the 1851 Census etc looking for the family.

 

                I’ve not followed up on the Death of John James CLAYTON as yet.

 

                Yes; I have the Baptisms for Edmund & Roger who I believe are born about 1812 & 1814, but Baptised at the same time as appears common in those days.

 

                Yes; the 1841 Census which shows John & Ann CLAYTON with 6 children and John a Stone Mason is as I’ve received from a fellow list member and it all fits in.

 

                RE the Baptism found for John CLAYTON: I will have to follow up on that later when time permits.

 

                Many thanks for your information and interest.

 

                Regards;

 

                Robert

Robert N. G. KEMSLEY <robtricia@...>
 

                Evening Jenny:

 

                Still battling to catch up.

 

                No; The Family Tree found is not mine and yes; I do know of Jane CLAYTON Born to Roger & Mary.

 

                I am not aware of the photos, but when I catch up; I hope to get back to and check them out.

 

                Re the Baptisms of Edmund & Roger: No they would be brothers, but Baptised at the same time as seems to be the practice from time to time.

 

                Re the 1841 Census; I’ve just been advised that after Jane died in 1821; John remarried an Ann and that’s why I couldn’t find John & Jane in the 1841 Census, as John was still a Stone Mason in 1841.

 

                Many thanks:

 

                Robert

Subject: Re: [Westriding-gen] Seeking info re Roger or Rodger CLAYTON?

 

To add a little bit to the message from Arthur.  I found on the Ancestry.co.uk site a tree, which could belong to you I have no way of knowing.  On that tree is the daughter of Rodger and Mary called Jane born 1839 at  Rosedale Yorkshire.  there is a photo of Rodger, Mary and Jane as well as one or two other photos of the family members.  the tree owner is noted on ancesry as tutu19 and if you sign in to ancestry and find the tree you can contact the tree owner, provided this is not your tree of course. 

The tree shows the image of 2 baptisms, one noted after the other,  at Rochdale on the same day, Aug. 17th 1814 of Edmund and Roger both sons of John & Jane Clayton abode Milkstone father a Stone Mason.  A note in the margin  shows Emund born 21st april 1812, beside the entry for Roger in the same margin is just the one word Born. Whether the writer just forgot to add the date of birth or meant the same date as that of Edmund it is impossible to say. Could they have been twins or just baptised together? Some parents saved baptising their children until they had a few and then baptised them all at once.  I have seen entries for 4 or 5 children, siblings, together in some registers. 

Some details on the tree do not fit with the father of Rodger.  For instance the 1851 census entry shows the heaad of houseful John Clayton as a shoemaker rather than Stonemason.  He and his family are at Thirsk North Yorkshire where John is shown to have been born.  So if you look at the tree check all of the details for yourself as far as you are able.  But this may give you a jump start into finding out more about Rodger and his family before he emigrated to AUS.

Jenny De Angelis
