In Reply to: Ferneyhoughs from Checkley, Stafford, England by George W. Haney of 174

Hello George

I am not connected to the Checkley Fernyhoughs that I know of, but I did look at the possibility of the family being connected to my missing Edward, whose oldest child was born in 1747. I know that your 4xg gf was not the right age, but wondered if the name ran in the family. Alas, no.

I have the IGI organised into a database, so that I can search it as I like. I agree that your family all appears in it, as do the siblings of Thomas:

Ann bp 15 Oct 1711
Elizabeth bp 17 Feb 1712
William bp 4 Jan 1714
Frances bp 31 Dec 1715
John bp 16 Sep 1718
Mary bp 31 Jun 1720
Helen bp 15 apr 1722
Thomas bp 14 Jun 1724 (Edward's father)
Jane bp 23 Oct 1726
Adam bp 4 Oct 1730

I have not proved any of this, but from my wills index, I can trace a link between the Fernyhoughs of Checkley and those of Dilhorne, so it may be that Thomas's parents were Willian and Frances. William could have been baptised at Dilhorne on 5 Feb 1686.

I have not sorted out the information from any wills yet, but it looks as if William might have died between 6 July and 6 November 1730, but I am not sure. I shall let you know if I can find anything more definite in my records.

Good luck
