  1. Hello I have been researching my family history and have been lucky enough to go back to 1771 when my 4x great grandfather Job Dukes was born in 1771 I believe his father was Thomas Jukes 1745/6 who was a chape maker, but I have found it difficult to confirm this or go back any further. He was apparently married to Susanna Whitehouse banns record dated 14/7/1765. I have not been able to find out much about Job who married Maria Cox. Any ideas please how I could get confirmation on any of the above in records held in your care. I live in Essex and am planning a visit to see your local area. I would be happy to share any of my information. Many thanks. Sylvia

    • Many thanks for your enquiry Sylvia, I’ve forwarded it to our three researchers and I’ll contact you with their findings.
      Should be before the end of January.

  2. Dear Cheslyn Hay History Group,
    I would like to know more about the records you hold and how to access them.
    My gr gr grandmother was Sarah Morgan b. 1849 in Cheslyn Hay, she married Richard Perkins and later lived in Bulwell, Nottingham.
    Sarah’s parents were Abraham Morgan and Mary Lyons.
    Much of the info I have collected has contradictions around Abel/ Abraham and indeed their religion.
    I would be most grateful for any guidance/ pointers that anyone can offer.
    Thank you, regards D. Pinkett

    • Many thanks for your enquiry Diana but unfortunately our records cannot be accessed on line, but if you wish to join as a member (£5) I’d be pleased to email your Morgan family tree of 25 pages for no extra fee and you will have access to all of our members who are researching the Morgan family.
      I’ve had a quick scan at our records but we have very little on your g-g-grandmother Sarah except she was the tenth child and born in 1849 but we have details of Abel Morgan who married Mary Lyons on 25 Dec 1825 and they both died in Cheslyn Hay and we have their burial dates etc. Abel’s parents were Thomas and Elleanor and from Broseley, with Abel being christened at St Leonards on 31 Jan 1803.
      You question Abel & Mary’s religion but they had a large family and it appears that most were christened as Wesleyan New Connexion Methodists here in Cheslyn Hay.
      Our Base is open every Tuesday and we’d be delighted to help you with your research or we can deal with your email enquiries as a member.
      Very best wishes
      Trevor
