Dawn Scotting pointed me to a James Gregory born in Duffield on the IGI. however today I found this Belper website with the Duffield Births.
I couldn’t believe my luck when I found this.
Next time I’m up in Derbyshire, I will be checking to see if I can find the parents of this James. Perhaps the Baslow hope was a red Herring?
Other Gregorys can be found Here in the Duffield Baptisms records.
I wonder if this is our James (Jacobus) Gregory who went on to Marry Helen Wallwin of Elton?
