I went to the Derbyshire records office in Matlock yesterday …I’m still seeking the father of James born circa 1670. Although I can find no record of his baptism in Birchover there was a James born in nearby Ashover in 1665. His parents were Robert and Mary.
James had a brother named John…maybe a longshot but I ran out of time…something to look into perhaps?
Also James born 1670 had a wife Helen Walwin…I found details of Walwins in Elton at the end of 16th C
Anne b 18/08/1603-Elton-F William
But nothing after for a while….anyone know anything?
