View Full Version : Wood family of Chisworth
27-10-2006, 8:00 PM
I have just received a copy of my great grandfather's birth certificate. The birth of William was registered in Chisworth, Derbyshire in 1838. The father James WOOD was a collier. The mother was Hannah, formerly WALKER. Could anyone look up this family in the 1841 census for me and provide details?

That is a lot to work with. By 1861 I show William W. living in Tonge near Middleton, Lancs. with Jane -the first of his three wives. None of his 14 children had yet been born. -It must be that Derbyshire water!
Is it likely that the Woods on the previous page of the 1841 census were related? I guess I will be looking in Denton for James W.'s birth but Samuel W.'s age makes him a potential father. Then the son would have been named after his uncle.
If you would be kind enough to post the 1861 info, for James' family I will add the other siblings to my chart.

I was so excited at seeing your first post that I had replied before reading the second.
Thanks very much indeed.
