red mail Suzannah Smith 1764 - 1829. Who was her mother?
I believe Susannah is the mother of my direct 4 x great grandmother Rhoda/Rodia/ Rodey Crofts nee Speight. Susan married william Speight in 1790. She was born in 1764 and baptised in Wentworth, daughter of Thomas Smith . Her mother was Susannah who appears to die in 1772 in wentworth. Thomas then re marries. I know there were brothers Smith Samuel/ william etc but need some help sorting it all out and finding WHO Susannah was who was married to Thomas. Think they married ore 1760 . There were some active church wardens in the area keeping detailed records. Has anybody seen reference to the parents of Susannah wife of Thomas Smith of Hood Hill .
red mail Roy William Chinery
He married my mother Edith Vera Chinery who worked at Wentworth Woodhouse as a children's nanny. Roy was sadly shot down and killed in the early part of WW2 (his name is on the WW2 war memorial as he went to school in Wentworth). My mother subsequently gave birth to me (father unknown) and I was put up for adoption - somebody having paid for my mother to give birth at a home for single mothers in Chesterfield. Can anybody shed light on who my father may have been (? 10th. Duke?) and why the Chinery family had connections with Wentworth and the Fitzwilliams despite the former originating from Essex? David
My maternal grandfather was Henry Gordon POLES b 1902 in Rainham. He is descended from John Poles b 1648 Wentworth d 1708 Wentworth. His son, Thomas b 1699 Wentworth d 1765 Wentworth married Mary Birks of Wentworth b 1719 d 1797 Wentworth. Many of their descendants had Birks as a middle name. I have a handwritten book of fascinating recipes and cures created by my ancestor Anne Poles nee SCHOFIELD b 1790 who married Samuel POLES a farmer of Wentworth in 1825 in Sheffield. Their grandson was my grandfather, Dr Henry Gordon Poles. I would love to hear from anyone who has any connection or information which would help and I would be very happy to share the exciting contents of the book along with church service documents I found in it! A cousin called PIPER created the tree I have. Thank you. Marilyn

My great grandfather, born 1832 and Baptised in Wentworth, was married to Emily DOBSON, whose father Henry was an iron miner. Her mother was called Charlotte WOOD. Joseph Smith had siblings born in Wentworth - he was a Blacksmith, later an engine tenter at Elsecar - he moved from Barrow Field Gate at the bottom end of Wentworth about 1891 to Laburnum Cottage, where I still have relatives living in 2009! Joseph Smith's parents were John SMITH and Ann BALMFORTH - they were married in Tankersley. I have traced my Smith family back to 1732 in Wentworth.
