Hello, I'm looking for anyone who is researching the Oldknow family of Holbrook, Derbyshire.

My ggrandmother was Emma Oldknow, born April 12th, 1857 and married Henry Ball.

Thanks..Barbara

My great grandma was Fanny Oldknow of Holbrook. My mother's cousin has done a lot of research on the Oldknow family. If you haven't already come across her, Ann Peat, I can give you her address. My grandma, Olive, was an only child and went on to marry Walter Moulsdale.

Hello Rebecca...thanks for responding to my query about the Oldknows of Holbrook.

My great-grandmother Emma was the daughter of James and Mary (Walker).

Emma was the eldest child and had the following siblings.
Ages given are from the 1881 Census.

Jane 22yrs Holbrook
William 19yrs "
Sarah 15yrs "
James 13yrs "
Eliza 11yrs "
Joseph 9yrs Milford
Mary 4yrs "

I haven't come across any of the people you mention, but I suspect that Holbrook, as I knew it in the 1950s was much smaller 100yrs prior.

Would love to hear back from you when you have a moment.
