Scott Family - help!

Postby Truebrit » Fri Sep 30, 2016 10:35 pm

Hi

I am researching the Scott family, living around Leicester in the 1830's.

I have a Lois Scott who married a William Coltman in 1832 in Leicester. She claims to be born in East Farndon , Northamptonshire in abt 1806. She is buried in Wigston, Leics in 1870.

From census' I see that she had a sister Elizabeth Scott who was born abt 1812 and who married Thomas Watson in Leicester in 1835. She was buried in East Farndon in 1853 although on the 1851 census claims to be born in Derbyshire. I can't work out the place though:

Ref: H0107; piece 2090; folio 311; page 22

Can anyone help me work out what the place is and who their parents were as I cannot spot any baptisms!!

Thanks in advance

TB

Tissington, Derbyshire?
Are you local to Leicestershire?

Thanks for your response.

Yes I am local to Leicestershire. I had thought Tissington but the T at the front does not match other 'T's on previous pages. I was wondering if it was either an 'L' or an 'S'?

In 1841 she is in Walcote, Leicestershire and not born in County.

I have just noticed that a lady in a completely different branch of my tree might also have come from the same place - Hannah Peat (formerly Roberts) born abt 1797 and who lived in either Hinckley or Leicester:

Those are two different census's pertaining to her....

Re the Derbyshire entry for Elizabeth Scott: could be Tissington, although the letters aren't quite right to be a double 's'. Any chance the place is Longstone?

Tissington for me, though the T threw me off. Everything else looks fine to me.

I think Tissington too.

The first letter does look like an L but there is a post (if you google Lissington, Derbyshire) where a user has suggested their ancestor was born in Lissington, Derbyshire. On closer inspection of the census in question, the lettering is very similar to that in your query, but tracing the man back (Alfred Manifold) , he was indeed born in Tissington (image attached)

Having said all that I can see no Elizabeth Scotts at all on FMP for a baptism in Derbyshire 1802 - 1822 (which I think you've already checked).

Thank-you all for your help!

If only a baptism could be found for Lois and Elizabeth to help confirm the position!

I had thought Tissington too - but am confused about all the places and how they connect - East Farndon, Leicester and Tissington (?) !

Let's hope someone can spot a way of connecting this family with places and relatives!

Hi
Have you seen these baptisms at East Farndon?
8.10.1826 Elizabeth,Jane and Charlotte daughters of Samuel and Mary Scott labourer
Elizabeth is given as 13 years old
Could that be her?
William and Lois's first child is christened at the non conformist chapel at Wigston
Henry born 22.4.1836 bapt 7.2.1837
so you should be looking for non-conformist records.
Samuel and Mary Scott ( d of henry and Sarah Garnett) do seem to be taking their children to Market Harborough and East Farndon independent chapels ,although I can't spot a Lois.
Martha 13.11.1804
Samuel 7.11.1805
Ann 2.1.1807
Henry 26.6.1808
Deborah 19.4.1809
William 6.11.1811
Hannah 31.8.1813
Elizabeth 16.11.1815
John 6.5.1817

As you can see there are two Elizabeths so it may not be the same couple.
But William Coltman is baptised at the chapel at South Wigston 7.6/13 June 1810 to Thomas and Jane so that is the way to go.

Thanks Ciderdrinker.

Very interesting. I am sure that I have investigated the Samuel and Mary (nee Garnett) before although as I could not fit Lois in I began to think this was not the right family. Unless Lois is Ann.....

The 'other' (?) Samuel and Mary having Elizabeth, Jane and Charlotte baptised in 1826 sounds more interesting. Could they have been living outside the area? This family needs investigating further to see if they had earlier children or to se if they yield other clues? It would also be interesting to see what happened to Jane and Charlotte - did they get married and who were the witnesses....Lois Coltman, Elizabeth Watson???

Can any further info be found on these girls?

Thanks in advance

TB
