Hi Mark

Find my Past have a baptism for a John Widdowson on 27 May 1739 at North Wingfield. Parents are John Widdowson and Pheebe Newton.

There is a baptism at North Wingfield for Phebe Newton on 23 October 1709.

There is a baptism for Ann Carrington at Chesterfield on 17 November 1734, father James Carrington.

Hope this helps

Hi Steve

That's great i will make a note of it.


Re: Widdowson 1700s

Hi Mark et al,
Looks like the John Widdowson bapt:27/May/1739 may be the same as the one buried 20th Sept/1739, son of John Widdison & Pheebe Newton (Spurious) at Wingfield. Note: Pheebe also appears as Spurious on the baptism record.
Ref: Family Search website.

There is also a very extensive Tree on Fam.Search which goes back to the 1500's on the Widdowson side and the 1600's on the Carrington side. This Tree has John's parents as Johannis Widdison(B:1693) married 1719 at Barlow, Chesterfield to Anna Marsh. Also it has John Widdison being born 1731.

Hi Wendy

It was once said that the Widdowson family were Nordic. I followed the ones you mentioned on that site.
Noticed there are two Nordic names Johannis and Alanus.
The surname has been spelt many different ways on the old records.

That's brilliant thanks for your help.
