Looking for Withams of Nottinghamshire

Journal by Margaret Douglas

I am looking for my Grandfathers family, I don't know his christian name, but he married Emma Betts,Sutton in Ashfield, they had two daughters, Ethel was born in 1904ish and Edna was born in 1906. My grandfather died when my mother (Edna) was only 13yrs, so I do not know much about the Witham Family, apart from I believe he had a brother Clarence. They lived at one point on Outram Street Sutton in Ashfield Nottinghamshire. My Grand father worked with his brothers to sink Tinsley Park Mine Yorks, and Warsop Mine in Notts. I know that there was a cousin Jack who lived in Warsop Notts, he had two sons, David who was a local preacher and taught backward children and John who worked for B.Telecom. If you can assist me, my name is Margaret Douglas e.mail: info@matchmatesbureau.co.uk. Or Tel: 01636 611115.

Alison,
Thank you for the suggestions but my Mamma Emma Betts was born 1880's she married in about 1901 ish. Her parents were Betts of Sutton in Ashfield.Notts. The dates above are too early, can you check these dates for me. Her married name was Witham. Her daughters were Ethel born in 1904 and Edna (my Mother) was born in 1906. I was born to her in 1934. My father was Rufus Beresford he was born in 1903 in Shiland Derbyshire. Can you assist me further. Margaret Douglas.(nee Beresford I am a member of Beresford Family Society.
