Looking for any and all references to SEWELL from the UK county of Nottinghamshire especially Worksop and Blyth areas.

Please send any Notts SEWELL references/entires to me and I will ensure them a good home.

Interested to compare notes with any decendants of the NOTTS SEWELL's.

My husband's great grandmother, Louisa Sewell (m. Andrew Carr Arthur) was born in Nottinghamshire on Nov. 27 1848. I believe her parents were William & Elizabeth Ginever Sewell. Older sister possibly Sarah. Sometime before 1858 they moved to PIttsburgh PA. Does your research connect to any Radford Notts Sewells or Ginevers? I believe Wm & Elizabeth married in Leicestershire Dec 1838. Thanks!

Well gang, you have found another cousin. My GGGgrandfather was Thomas Sewell, born in Nottingham, married to Catherine Palmer. My GGgrandfather was William Palmer Sewell was born in Leiscester on June 22, 1819 and my GG aunt is Louisa Nichols Sewell.
So let's all compare notes.

Yes Vicki, your husband's gggrandfather was my gguncle by marriage. And Louisa had a sister named Sarah born in 1844 as well as 5 other siblings. I have quite a bit of information on the Sewell side, although I'm always searching for more.

I have a lot of info about my Sewell ancestors from Worksop but will not attempt to fit it all on here! Anyway, my g-g-grandmother was Mary Ann Sewell, born 29 Feb 1860 in Worksop, daughter of Charles Sewell born 1827 in Worksop and Sarah Bowskill born 1823 or 1824 in Carlton-on-Lindrick (near Worksop.) Charles and Sarah had seven children altogether, and at least 37 grandchildren. They lived at Cheapside, Worksop in 1851, at 24 Lowtown St., Worksop in 1861, and at East Gate, Worksop after that. Charles was a carter, then a labourer, but his sons were coal miners.Charles's parents were John Sewell, born 1802 or 1803 in Worksop, and Mary Wilkinson, born around 1803 in Blyth, and they married in 1826 in Blyth. They lived at East Gate in Worksop in 1851and at 71 Kilton Rd., Worksop in 1861. I don't know who John's parents were, nor have I found out yet if they had other children apart from Charles. I would be interested to hear from anyone who is related!

Dear Sarah,
Thanks for the info. The census entry is definitely "my" Sewells. The first time I went to the library to look at the censuses I gave up on Worksop 1841 because the microfiche is filmed in a funny order, but I had been back and found the entry already. As for the christenings, Charles and John match the census entry, but I'm not sure about George and Charlotte. If they were in the same family, I guess they must have died young as they aren't on a census. I had already seen these too, by the way - perhaps I should have posted myself a reply to save you some work! Hope you didn't spend too much time on it, but thanks. Are you also a descendant / relation of these Sewells? If so, we are distant relations of each other!
By the way, I found out that John Sewell was born on 4th September 1802 and christened 8th September 1802 in Worksop, son of John and Betty Sewell. Mary was christened on 5th September 1802 at Blyth, the daughter of John and Mary Wilkinson of Hodsock.
I just noticed something from my notes of the 1841 census which I didn't realise were significant at the time - John and Betty Sewel aged 65 and 70 respectively living at Cheapside (Ag. Lab. born Notts)! (reference R40)
And in 1851 they were still living at Cheapside -
John Sewel Head M 78 Pauper born Worksop
Elizabeth Sewel Wife M 79 born Worksop
James Sewel Son U 43 Maltster's Lab born Worksop
Ann Cabb Daur W 36 Washerwoman born Worksop
Thomas Cabb Grandson 9 Scholar born Egmanton.
(I have written down reference number 96 for this.)
Well, it looks as if John Sewell had a few brothers and sisters! I shall now start digging around to find out what I can about them. I see that James was living as a lodger at 112 East Gate in 1861 but will have to go back to the library to look up the Cabbs.
Thanks again and I would love to know if we are related!
Kate.
