Hello Jane,

You may know that the inventor of the Umbrella Frame was Samuel Fox and he founded the Stocksbridge Works.

Samuel was born in Bradwell, Derbyshire and it seems that quite a few Bradwell Families 'emigrated' to the Stocksbridge area to work in the Wire Works, probably due to the demise of the Lead Mines/Hat Making/Weaving and other small industries in Bradwell.

Samuel Evans who married Emma Grayson (your Bolsterstone Tree) was one of these. When his wife died, his elder sister RACHEL bap. 1832 Bradwell Wesleyan (?) became his housekeeper.

1. Johnson Evans bu.1793 and Jane Poynton bap. abt. 1736 - 7 children

2.James Evans bap1777 and Mary Bocking - he was the youngest of the above 7. 10 children.

3Samuel Evans bap.1804 and Dinah Ellis - 2nd son of above10 children. 8 children only 4 survived childhood.

4Samuel EVANS bap. Bradwell Wesleyan 1842 and Emma Grayson. 
2nd youngest of surviving 4. Samuel may be buried at Gt. Hucklow, Derbys.

5 LUCY ANN EVANS bap Bradwell Wesleyan 1845 and Joseph Oldfield. Youngest child of the surviving 4. May be buried in Manchester.

Other Evans relations who found themselves in the area as wireworkers/blacksmiths/labourers, - Joseph and Johnson Evans living at Bradfield/Hunshelf. Two of my great grandfathers' brothers Josiah Barber Evans and James Evans living at Horner Houses, Bradfield (do these buildings still exist?) James wife Charlotte was buried on 13.3.1900 at Stocksbridge with her son Wilfred (any scandal?)

The Evans family in Bradwell was quite extensive and very strong in the pursuit of Non-Conformism in the 18/19 centuries.
