I am trying to trace my paternal family tree with the help of my auntie. My G Grandfather was Benjamin Palmer married to Margaret (nee Meakin) and who had 13 children, the youngest of whom was my grandfather, Jack.

Any information would be greatly received. I have a photograph of Benjamin Palmer together with children's name and some dob's and dod's if I can help anyone.

Two sons became blacksmiths and 2 coalminers. Any information about any of them or their ancestors would be very welcome. Also any information about the villages of Heanor, Eastwood, Somercotes,Selston. All the family seem to have been in some way involved in coal. Are there any local histories of the time that include these villages? Any other information that would give me some idea of how my family would have lived at this time.

red mail Oliver Piggin, vicar of Heanor
Anyone interested in Heanor before the coal period will find the records rather thin, though there are some potentially useful Heanor land documents at Nottinghamshire Archives. Oliver Piggin was vicar of Heanor till his death in 1547 and was somehow linked to the Oliver Piggin of Heanor who died in 1578. I have published some biographical material about Oliver Piggin online.

Am looking for details regarding William and Sarah HUNT SPRINGTHORPE, married 1828, sons John SPRINGTHORPE (b.1829), Robert SPRINGTHORPE (b. 1836). Sarah died at Basford Union House in 1839.

red mail Smith family of Heanor
Hi, I'm trying to trace the history of Mary Ann Smith who MIGHT be my GGG Grandmother. I found an online listing for St Lawrence Church that had a baptism 28 March 1813 - mother Sarah, father (illegitimate). A Mary/Mary Ann of the correct age and place of birth went on to marry Joseph Bentley. All census from 1841 show them living at Yardley, Worcestershire/Warwickshire. I have not been able to locate: birth of Mary/Mary Ann, marriage of Mary and Joseph (stop laughing), birth of their 3 older children. I have purchased a birth cert for their dau Sophia showing Mary Bentley formerly Smith. This is the only record that indicates her maiden name. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I will be eternally grateful. Also if anyone can provide info on Mary's mother Sarah. Hope to hear from someone soon! Thanks.

He married Fanny West (from Ilkeston), they had around 6/7 children and they lived in Heanor. If anyone has any info on him then please let me know. Possibly the 1851 census would shed some light on him? I dont have access to that one, i do with all the others, so any help or info would be greatfully received.

red mail Meakin/Chadwick - Heanor/Ilkeston
I am researching my paternal family. My grandfather was Walter Meakin of Heanor who married Ann Chadwick from Ilkeston. They had 12 children (my father was no 11). Walter's father was John who married Elizabeth (I think Gillott) and owned a frameworks in Nook End in Heanor. They had several children, most of whom I have traced but there may stil be gaps particularly between 1853 and 1864. His father was Joseph married to Ann - the only relevant marriage I can find is Ann Gaskin in Heanor on 25 Dec 1832 which fits with John's birthdate. I think the Meakins prior to Joseph must have come from Ilkeston as the records seem to run out in Heanor. Any help or information appreciated.
