Please, is anyone researching this somewhat unusual name in North Nottinghamshire in the pariashes around Retford ? I have a Jonathan Barthrop who marries Mary Barthrop at Headon in 1756. Their daughter, also Mary, born 1757 marries John Pygot of Blyth as his second wife in 1789.
The name appears in many forms - Barthorp Barthorpe Bartrupt Bartrip Barterrupt Bartrop to give but some.
I have entries from the IGI but some burials would be appreciated.

Had a quick look on Free reg. http://www.freereg.org.uk/
There are Barthrops listed in Nottinghamshire.
Hope you are well |hug|

If you ever find that the name is also BARLTROP, they made it south to Cambridgeshire by the 1830s. I have a handful of them.

Thank you for that, Astoria, but they are a bit late for me. After Mary B married John Pygot in 1789 it was the Pygot line I followed forward.
Why do I never think of looking on FreeReg ? I have made several contributions and I know it is ongoing.
Thank you for asking, I am as fit as I probably shall ever be considering my age. I am looking forward to going out again now that the snow and ice have finally disappeared.

There are these burials at Askham (very close to Headon) from the Notts FHS Burial Index:
2 January 1745 William BARTHORP of Askham
15 June 1750 Elizabeth BARTHROP, wife of Jonathan, of Askham
17 January 1742 John BARTHROP, son Johan & Eliz, of Askham
1 February 1805 Jane BARTHROP of Askham, Pauper
8 February 1744 Samuel BARTHROP, of Askham
17 February 1744 John BARTHROP, of Askham
13 June 1774 Mary BARTHROP, of Askham, Spinster
10 November 1787 Jonathan BARTHROPE, of Askham, aged 82, Labourer
No burials at Headon on the disc I have, sorry.

Jan - thank you so much. One of the next things I was going to do was contact Notts. FHS (I am a member) to see if their Burial and Settlement Indexes were still available. These people did seem to move about a lot within quite a small area between Retford and the Trent.
Just as my Derbyshire Siddall's are bedevilled by Godfrey's so are my Barthrop's bedevilled by Jonathan's. Ah well, back to the drawing board.
PS I notice my label has changed. Is this a sly hint that I make too much noise ?????
I refute 'sleek' - moth-eaten old moggy is more like, but thank you for the compliment.
