red mail George Renshaw, Ashbourne, Derbyshire 1845
Looking for info re my family who emigrated to South Australia. George Renshaw was born abt 1845 in Ashbourne & died in Greenock, South Australia 1906. He came to Australia with his parents, George Renshaw Snr born abt 1805 & Mary (Anne) born 1805, maiden name unknown, on the Barque Macedon in 1849 or 1853. Mary remarried, William John Clark(e) & she died in Greenock South Australia in 1903. Whilst in Australia they lived in Adelaide, Hookina, Kaduna, Silverton, Springfield, Greenock & other mining areas in the District of Clare & Barrossa Valley. George Snr was listed on the younger George's marriage cert to Mary Ann Heaver, Springfield, South Australia in 1868 as being a "Driver" which would sugggest he was still alive, but Mary Renshaw applied for a Widow's Destitute Payment in Gawler in 1862, so not sure if he died or deserted. I have a lot of info to share after they arrived in Australia, but can't find confirmation of them being on The Macedon, other than an anecdote Mary told a South Australian newspaper in 1899. Any help would be appreciated.

red mail Sandy Brooks, Ashbourne?
I have ancestors, family names Carrington and Silcock, from Sandy Brooks, Derbyshire. I have discovered from White's Directory that this is/was a village 1 mile north of Ashbourne and that there was a large hall there: "Sandy Brook Hall, ....., abeautiful modern mansion, near the Buxton road, with fine lawn and delightful plea­sure grounds, is the seat and property of Sir Matthew Blakiston, Bart." Does this building still exist? Is it, perhaps, part of the Sandybrook Country Parkcomplex? I assume that Sandy Brook has been swallowed up by Ashbourne now - can anybody identify the area for me in modern terms? Thanks for any help.
