For several years I have been researching my family history and have a particular interest in:

Maternal Paternal
Ball 1819 Dwyne/Dwine 1785
Berrisford 1734 Garner 1880
Boulton 1859 Hancox 1829
Copeland 1825 Lewis 1833
Simcock 1860 Cooper 1782

Year is the earliest in my records

All of the above are related in some way to Stoke-On-Trent Staffordshire England Wales or Ireland. I am also interested in any references to the place name Chell Heath, Little Chell or Bycars Farm, have been told that most from these areas in the 1800's are probably related.

Additional items:

  1. Lewis - - John Dwine(1853) & Elizabeth Lewis(1853) Married 1874 Burslem St Pauls
    Sarah Dwine(1857) & Walter Lewis Married 1878 Hanley St. John
    The above are brothers & sisters. - Are there any Lewis descendents?
    The Lewis sibling's parents were Edwin Lewis b 31 July 1833 Mold, Flint Wales and Jane Hancox b 1829, Burslem. In 1881 Edwin Lewis was listed in the census as Beer House Keeper living at Travellers Rest Brook St, Biddulph, Stafford.
  2. Witheridge is the maiden name of my mother-in-law. Sylvia Maud Clarke nee Witheridge (1915-1998)
  3. Simpson a distant relationship through Berrisford and Rutland. Additional Simpson information is available at the Simpson web site.
  4. I have several glass negatives, probably for the late 1800's that belonged to my Father or his Father. Most have been identified however there is still one mystery. I have no idea who these people are, perhaps you do? Please click to view Dwyne Unknown|
