Elias Calladine 1825, Wirksworth Derbyshire

Journal by Dave Calladine

I managed to find the baptism records for Elias in the Independant church of Heage, 3 miles South down the hill from Norton Steer Farm which is about a mile and a half East of the village of Wirksworth. The main road today, which is cut into the valley did not exsit, and this road was the main route to Derby, because the nearest wide bridge across the River Derwent was at Heage.

Birth: 18 MAY 1825
Christening: 09 JUN 1825 Independent, Belper And Heage, Derbyshire
Father: JOSEPH CALADINE, Mother: ANNA MARIA. Joseph was born in 1770, and Anna in 1785.

The LDS Church record Elias as being the son of Joseph Joseph Calladine and Ann Marie Duffield, however, I think that it may be Middleton?

Marriages: Spouse: ANNE MIDDLETON
Marriage: 27 DEC 1813 Duffield, Derby, England

Elias is in the 1841 and 51 as a batchelor,

1841 Census, Noton Steer Farm,

after Alice in 1879, I assume that he moved back to his wifes parents in Kent, before or shortly after she died, and the family crop up on the 1881 in Kent.

This Calladine family appear in Kent on 1881

Re this Statement above: The LDS Church record Elias as being the son of Joseph Joseph Calladine and Ann Marie Duffield, however, I think that it may be Middleton?
Joseph CALLADINE married Anna/Hannah Maria MALINS in 1804 in Stratford on Avon. They had a son George before moving to Derbyshire. Anna was born in Whatcote WAR. I suspect Joseph previously came from Derbyshire and can only speculate on how they came to meet!
