"This is my great great grandfather James WILSON, born 1789in Ashover Derbyshire; he moved to Bradfield as a young man and married Mary ELLIOT fromUghill: He was employed as a Gamekeeper by the Bradfield Game Association, their first born was Henry WILSON my Great Grandfather 16 Nov 1826.
He lived all his life in Bradfield working firstly as a woodman then as a quarry ,andthen took over the Haychatter Beerhouse 1893-1901 listed. He is in the 1891 census as Innkeeper and Farmer ,and died there in 1904.
His daughters: Elizabeth married Henry CRAWSHAW / Ann married Joseph GILL/ and my Grandmother married Joseph WILSON of another old Wilson farming family from Bradfield .I am hoping that maybe someone has photos of any family member, I am sure that Henry as Innkeeper would have had his photo taken many times."

James Charlsworth 2.JPG (60510 Byte)   Mary Hickenson 2.jpg (65043 Byte)

"Here are my great-grandparents James CHARLESWORTH and his wife Mary HICKENSON.
Mary was born in Booth Lane, Hathersage, Derbyshire in 1845, her mother was Ann SCHOFIELD before her marriage to John HICKENSON hence the connection with the Schofield family in our family Photo. The Schofield family are to the left of that photo and the CHARLESWORTHs to the right.
James CHARLESWORTH was born 1843 at Daiseylee in Cartworth and like many others came to Stocksbridge because of the work [we think]. He met and married Mary and lived on the Hunshelf Bank area as did the Schofield Family.
James became a foreman in the wire-drawing department where his sons eventually also worked as wire drawers.
James was said to be leader of the Stocksbridge band in 1872 He played 3rd cornet."
