Monrovian Community, Ockbrook, Derbyshire
I am researching the Creswick/Garton/Jackson families. Ann Garton (1740-1813) married James Creswick, a wealthy mill owner, in Sheffield in 1770. On James's death, Ann joined the Monrovian Community in Ockbrook and became one of their benefactors. Her daughter Sarah Creswick (1776-1827) married Paul Jackson in 1803. There is quite a lot of information in the family bible but some of it is illegible. I would appreciate help from anyone who has information either on the family or Ann Creswick's involvement with the Monrovian community.

red mail Salt family 1700s
I am looking for information on a Salt family who lived at Ockbrook in the 1700s. Ann Salt married an ancestor of mine, Wm. Squire or Squier from Spondon in 1792 and they moved to Canada after 1810. Mary Salt (may have been her sister) married Robert Bratby in 1798 according to Pallot's Marriage Index.
red mail Tenths of Ockbrook
In 1583, John Piggin and nine other yeoman farmers were affluent enough to purchase one-tenth each of the manor of Ockbrook from Lord Frederick Windsor. Though I have published some of the documents online, the history of those tenths is a story yet untold. If you are researching the surnames Battell, Fowke, Columbell, Saunderson, Adams, Cowper, Wyndley or Hubbard, please contact me and let's see if we can obtain the bigger picture.
red mail Naden Family
William Henry Naden (1842) married Mary Gibbs (1842 Castle Bromwich, War) Birmingham 1865. William's parents were William Naden (1786) & Rhoda ?? (1803, Duffield, Dby) & his siblings were: Joseph, Francis, Sarah & Isaac. William Henry & Mary lived in Birmingham & his occupation appeared to revolve around the Mid Railway as a porter, wagoner & carter. He was killed on 23 Oct 1888 when crushed between wagons, he was a horse driver of Birmingham. William & Mary's children: William Henry, Jemima, Louisa, Kate, Rose Ann, George & Walter. Louisa went on to marry William Shotton. I do not have any newspaper reports or inquest details on the accident, just the DC. Would William Henry have been employed by Midland Railway & would there have been records of compensation to his family? Seeking information on this accident & the families.
