Ancestors of Alexander Thomas Fisk

Notes


128. Joseph Fisk

His marriage to Mary Crane was in Lowestoft, Suffolk and Pallot's Marriage Index has his residence as "of gt. yarmouth".

It is probable that his father is a William since the couple tried hard to name a surviving son William.

~Remember that Great Yarmouth has always been in Norfolk but South Town and Gorleston are just across the river Yare and have been in Suffolk until recently.

HANNAH FISK (from member)
Christening: 23 SEP 1798 Kirkley, Suffolk, England
Father: JOSEPH FISK
Mother: MARY
A candidate for Mary Crane has a mother Hannah. The IGI does not have a marriage for a Hannah Fisk with a father Joseph.


129. Mary Crane

Her marriage to Joseph Fisk was in Lowestoft, Suffolk and so it is likely that she was born there. The 1841 census has her as not born in the county and there are plenty of CRANEs buried in St. Margaret's, Lowestoft in a surname index on GENUKI.

She died after Joseph on 22 March 1847 and her daughter Mary was present at the death.

~The IGI has a candidate (a bit old for her marriage date but look at her age from her death certificate):
MARY CRANE
Christening: 19 NOV 1764 Lowestoft, Suffolk, England
Father: JAMES CRANE
Mother: HANNAH
She had a grandchild named James.

130. William Fuller

In the 1841 census there is also in the same household:
John " M 30 Ind. Y
Mary Ann " F 4 Y
who look like his son and a granddaughter.

According to his death certificate he died at the age of 75 in 1842 making his birth date ~1767.

142. John Hutchinson

John was the fourth child of Jacob and Eleanor Hutchinson and he married Elizabeth Shield of Thornley Gate on the 13th February, 1797 when John was 26. John seems to have spent most of his life as a miner and ore smelter in the lead mining business. He clearly predeceased his brother William in 1841 and although he did not inherit any part of Hollin Close, his son John inherited one half from his Uncle William Pears, son of his aunt Rebecca (Hutchinson) Pears.

The ancestry of Jane Thompson has not been discovered at this time. Francis Shield was born in Allendale on 1st November, 1755, the son of Francis Shield and Lydia Watson. The Shields were an old Allendale family and her genealogy has been established back to about 1600. John and Elizabeth had 9 children and their sixth child John (1812-1875) is the direct ancestor in this generation.

152. James Turner

The parish church of Kirklinton is St Cuthberts. The 1868 map shows this as an isolated building with a rectory and Sunday School next to it. Nearby are various farms (Charlesfield, Kirkhill, Stubb), Kirklinton Hall and some hamlets (Milltown, Hetherside and Uppertown). The next nearest village is Smithfield.

A William Graham was the informant as the surgeon in attendance and residing at High Ullermire (where James died). Could he be related?

~IGI
There is another James Turner (son of James Turner and Rachel Gibson and his brother?) christened in 1799. But a christening date of 1789 matches the birth date (1788) of his wife better than 1799 (an 11 year difference in ages!). The MI and death certificate confirm his birth date aa about 1789.
The IGI also has a Joseph Turner christened in 1830 to John & Susanna Turner in Kirklinton (their only child in the IGI). An email from Pauline Stanley states that the Carlisle Record Office confirmed that the father is James.

158. William Gibson Battersby

It is likely that his mother was an Esther Battersby christened on 10 OCT 1773 in Tunstall, Lancashire. He named a daughter Esther and she in turn used the Battersby name for her son William's middle name.
His mother-in-law Bella Tomlinson is 2 households from him in the 1841 census.

~GenesReunited
Hello Ian I have a William Gibson BATTERSBY who married Frances TOMLINSON in Kendal, Westmorland in 1820. He died within the Kendal region in 1858. Both the 1841 and 1851 census returns record his as William GIBSON, yet when his daughter Esther married in 1852 she was recorded as Esther Gibson BATTERSBY. The 1851 census for William in Kendal records him as 53 and born in Melling, Lancashire. Could he possibly be your William GIBSON? I'm researching the family of William FAWCETT & Esther BATTERSBY who married in Kendal in 1802. William Gibson BATTERSBY was the witness at their daughter's marriage. As William GIBSON (or William Gibson BATTERSBY) had a daughter named Esther I was wondering if perhaps this William was the son of Esther who married William FAWCETT. Perhaps her maiden name was GIBSON and William was born before she married a BATTERSBY. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Regards Peter Fawcett (NSW, Australia) fawcett@terrigal.net.au

Author: Robert L. Dodsworth
There is some confusion from the information available of the precise age of John Dodsworth when he died. What we know from his death certificate is that he died on 8 October 1849. There is incidentally a co-incidenceabout this date as both his great grandson Harold and his great great great granddaughter Sarah Louise also died on 8 October. The age on the death certificate is shown as 73. However on his gravestone he is shown as having died on 9 October and as being 72 years old. It would seem that the 8th is right as this is quite clear on the certificate, the 9th being the date the death was registered. Both ages however conflict with the1841 census. The 1841 census was taken in early June of that year, and in the census his age is shown as 55. As ages of adults in the 1841 census were rounded down to the nearest 5 below, this means in theory his age at that time could have been anywhere between 55 and 59. Therefore by October 1849 on the basis of this evidence his age would be between 63 and 68. It seems to me therefore that either John was unsure of his age or for reasons best known to himself he was not revealing it. I have concluded that he was in fact probably 69 when he died, being the son of George and Agnes Dodsworth of Cowling Nr. Bedale Yorkshire, who had a son John who was christened at Bedale on 28 October 1780. I know that John`s parents were called George and Agnes from the Parish Register of Sutton-on-the-Forest where this fact is recorded at the christening of his elder daughter Tabitha on 1 December 1811. I can find no evidence of any other Dodsworth`s at Sutton-on-the-Forest other than John and his family so he must have moved there from outside the area, and the link with George and Agnes is further strengthened by the fact that one of George and Agnes`s other sons was called Ralph. Ralph seems to have been a very uncommon name at that time, and yet John called one of his sons Ralph presumably after his brother.

As mentioned above the first definite point of contact with John that I have come across is at Sutton-on-the-Forest where he married Hannah Hornsey on 10 January 1809. The Parish Records of Sutton on the Forest show that at the time they got married they were both living in the parish, and that John`s occupation was as a labourer. I don`t know how long John had been living in the parish, but as recorded earlier it certainly appears that he moved there from somewhere else as there is no mention of any other Dodsworth`s in the Parish Records. On the other hand I am fairly sure that Hannah had lived there all her life, as there are a number of Hornseys` shown, although as yet I have been unable to trace her baptism.

Whilst John was shown as being a labourer at the time of his marriage, by the time his daughter Tabitha was christened his occupation is described as Farmer and his place of residence as Huby. There was no such useful information available from the records when his eldest child George was christened in 1809. Huby is a small village about one and a half miles north-west of Sutton on the Forest. When John`s son William was baptised on 5 June 1814 and his son John on 11 August 1816 he was still described as a farmer living at Huby, but some time between then and 1818 he moved to Dromonby which is about three miles south of Stokesley, because this is where he is shown as living when his son Ralph was christened at Stokesley in 1818. Here again it certainly appears that he was farming but as yet I have not been able to establish the name of the farm. So far I have uncovered the birth of a further four children, Robert born 1820, Thomas born 1822, Agnes born 1826, and Sarah born 1828. I wonder whether there was another child between Thomas and Agnes. In the 1841 census I have found a Mary Dodsworth living at Carlton in the house of Thomas Gillworking as a house servant. She was 18 at the time and therefore could have been born about 1823.

John was a tenant farmer because the Land Tax assessment for 1822 does not show him as owning any land in Dromonby, but as occupier of land owned by a Mrs. Lindigreen and paying 11s 9d in land tax. In 1823 he is again shown as occupying land owned by Mrs. Lindigreen, but now paying £2-6-8d.

John was still living at Dromonby in 1831 when his wife Hannah died (also in October ) at the age of 43. In 1832 he was still there, however the land is now owned by a William Kitchen although the land tax remained at £2-6-8d. Some time between then and 1838 he moved to Brawith farm which is about two miles West of Stokesley. This is where his daughter Tabitha was living when she got married on 29 November 1838 to Christopher Stockdale. He was still living at Brawith at the time of the1841 census. At that time he still had three of his sons, John, Robert and Thomas, living with him and it would appear working on the farm. Agnes and Sarah were also still at home and there was a female servant, Mary Lyster. There is also a Richard Hicks listed who is described as a farmer, but it is not clear whether he was working on the farm or whether he was another farmer who happened to be visiting on that date.

Brawith farm extended to about 210 acres and was part of the Skutterskelf Estate. The Skutterskelf Estate was owned at that time by Lord Falkland.The principal Cleveland landowners tended not only to be agricultural improvers but to be more enlightened estate managers, and Lord Falkland fell into this category being particularly an improver of cottage property. I have visited the farm and was told by the farmer Mr. I. Gloagthat he is fairly sure that it remains largely unchanged from John`s day. Mr. Gloag told me that Brawith was regarded as the show-piece farm on theSkutterskelfe Estate. It is still clearly marked on the Ordnance Survey map just off to the left on the road from Stokesley to Rudby. John was still living at Brawith when he died of dropsy which he had evidently suffered from for three months. He is buried in the cementry at Stokesley Church in the same grave as his wife Hannah, and the headstone remains in good shape to this day unlike many of the others which have weathered very badly.


173. Hannah Hornsey

She married in Sutton on the Forest which is about 6km to the west of Sheriff Hutton where she was christened and makes the connection to William Hornsey a bit suspect. However her daughter is visiting Hannah's brother Matthew Hornsey in the 1861 census.
