Today we spent most of the day researching our family tree. I am researching the Gregory Side and Toria started looking up her parents side the Hazle’s who come from middlesex and the Mitchells who come from the South Too.
Whilst Toria had a lot of success, I have come up against a lot of conflicting evidence today.
Abraham Gregory is proving to be something of an Enigma. The Family Tree sheet that was given to me by Mrs Hunstone of Market Square may prove to be wrong in places…which is something of a blow.
The 1861 Census shows an Abraham Gregory aged 70 living with his Wife Hannah aged 56 in Sheffield with their son Isaac (27) and Isaacs Wife Henrietta (25).
This would mean that, Abraham would have to be born in 1791. My Tree map shows an Abraham Gregory born around 1789…I am just guessing but I reckon these are the same person.
Here comes the Problem….Abrahams Father is called…Wait for it….ABRAHAM. His wife seems to be called …Wait for it …Hannah!Hannah Stone.
Yeah I know, Now either by some weird coincidence both men married a woman called Hannah, or somewhere there’s been a stinking mix up.
Now Abraham senior, it turns out had at least 10 kids.
Jacob and James
I need to confirm Abe seniors wife..Any help would be appreciated.
