Great Site + Lomas query 2008-06-03 12:06:21

Just wanted to congratulate you on your wonderful site ....each time I visit is an adventure into the past ! I am tracing my Lomas ancestry (originally from Tideswell and Peak Forest in Derbyshire) and have reached a stumbling block. I have a Richard Lomas born 1762 but I cannot find a birth or baptism for him anywhere. His marriage to Sarah Longden in Peak Forest 1792, says he is from Tideswell. I have found Richard Lomas marriage to Sophia Gillam in 1755 at Tideswell but nothing else. I am now wondering whether my Lomas family came from over the border in Staffordshire. Out of curiosity, are the family of John Lomas the pedlar (his siblings and half siblings etc) recorded anywhere? Once again ...... a brilliant site......keep up the good work! cheers for now G.C.

Dear Gail, Thank you for the great message. It made our day! I have lots of entries from the Longnor parish registers that I haven't put on the website yet which cover the period you're interested in. I'll get back to you tomorrow when I've had chance to look through them. I don't know a great deal about John Lomas but this site is interesting and also John Lomas's letter to Sir George Crewe which is on the website. Lynda

Hello Gail, I've had chance to look through my notes & I can't find Richard Lomas, unfortunately. I know the Longnor registers at that period are in poor condition, though. Quarnford church is a possibility too as lots of people from the top end of the parish went there rather than Longnor but I have very few entries from there, so far. Sorry we can't be more help but will look out for any info for you, Lynda

Hi Lynda, Thank you for both replies to my query - it was very kind of you to look through your notes for my missing Richard. I know of a Richard Lomas farmer of Tideswell who died 1807 and the only burial registered for that year is one at Alstonefield. I have visited the site you mentioned...thank you for that. Your site is amazing... I have vowed to make a personal visit to the village one day soon. Once again many thanks, Gail

Thanks for your message Victoria. However my direct Lomas family had ventured away from Tideswell/Peak Forest area in the early 1800's. I am still looking for a possible connection with Hollinsclough and surrounding areas prior to this. Once again thanks for your reply.
