Ogdon, Lane & Letherland research continues


​It's been a busy few weeks since I last updated my website and there's plenty more to see now...

I have now cross checked all of Tom Ogdon's research into the descendants of Francis Oaketon against the Wirksworth Parish Records between 1608 and 1899, corrected entries where appropriate and added further information where available.

Added all of the other Ogdons from Wirksworth to the family tree - now just need to work out if any of them are related to our Ogdon line.

Added Ogdon information from the following sources on the excellent Wirksworth Parish website:

Wirksworth Parish Registers 1608-1899
Census 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901
Memorial Inscriptions 1555-1991
Ince's "Pedigrees" 1600-1860
Derbyshire Crime - Quarter Sessions
1770-1829 Universal British Directory
1791 List of Notables and Tradesmen
Index of Tradesmen 1821-27-35-46
White's 1857 List of Notables and Tradesmen
Cromford Wesleyan Baptisms 1806-1837
Owners of Land 1873
Matlock Parish Registers 1637-1856
Derbyshire Wills 1525-192

This pretty much makes my research of the Ogdon's from Wirksworth complete.

Traced a further 2 generations back in the Lane and Letherland lines (my GG Grandparents on my Mothers side) and added all Lane and Letherland descendants and their associated census return information from 1841 to 1901.

Split out the Family Tree Reports onto their own web page and...

  • Added new Family History, Register and Descendant Reports for the Lane and Letherland lines.
  • Updated the Family History, Register and Descendant reports for the Brooks line and added the web page equivalents.
  • Added a new Emigration section that provides an interesting background to the voyages made by various relatives to different parts of the world.
  • Added a new change log file so that you can see what has been updated on my Family Tree whenever the website is updated.
