ALLEN Wirksworth
I have JOHN ALLEN born 1778 Wirksworth, and his family. I am happy that the information I have is correct (census etc). But, I'm now struggling with his father. I've seen the Wirksworth website with all the parish records on, but how do I pick the correct JOSEPH when half of Wirksworth had that name?! I have a choice of 2 marriages for parents and I'm leaning towards Joseph and Hannah 1761(he is a miner and so is John and then his son), rather than Joseph and Sarah 1776 (because he is listed as Hulland Ward rather than just Wirksworth). What other records can I use to help?
I am rearching the above names and more of my family in Wirksworth Matlock, Littleover and areas. Other names include BRIERS, THOMPSON, BOWN,BAMFORD ,WILDGOOSE,MATHER ,HURD,WARD ,NEWBOLD,BRIERS
