My Surname Interests in Newark

ASHTON
My wife's great great great great grandmother was Sarah Ashton, who married William Smith at the parish church on 10th June 1777. As yet that is all we know of her.

ATHEIS is such an unusual name (with numerous variants) that I would be interested in any records of it at any time, anywhere. My wife's great grandmother was Eliza Elizabeth Atheis/Athers of Newark. Details of her, her siblings and ancestors can be found on my ATHEIS web page.

DUKE
This name is marginal for inclusion here because, although there were later DUKEs in Newark who were probably related, my wife's latest Duke ancestor was Elizabeth Duke who was born in Radcliffe-on-Trent and married William Atheis there 26 July 1778. The couple then lived and had children in Newark. Her parents were also married in Radcliffe, and her earlier ancestors for several generations seem to have lived in other villages in the area, such as Cropwell Bishop, Holme Pierrepont and Tollerton, with one marriage in Nottingham.

HOPKINSON
My wife's only known relative of this name was her great great great grandmother Ann Hopkinson, who married Thomas Hutchinson at Newark Parish Church 22 May 1777. We know nothing else about her.

HUTCHINSON
My wife's great great grandmother Sarah Hutchinson was born in Newark about 1782. On 13 Oct 1807 she married Francis SHAW at Newark Parish Church, where she was eventually buried 20 Dec 1852. Her parents were Thomas Hutchinson (bap Newark Parish Church 9 Jun 1759) and Ann Hopkinson. Thomas had a brother Robert who was baptised at the same time. Their father was Richard Hutchinson.

Thomas and Ann had eight children, all baptised at Newark Parish Church: Ann (1777), Luke (1779), Thomas (1781), Sarah, Thomas (1785), William (1789), Elizabeth (1789) and John 1793. Elizabeth was also my wife's ancestor, but shows up a generation earlier on the family tree than her older sister! Elizabeth married William MARSH (see below) at Newark Parish Church 26 Apr 1812.

MARSH
The mother of Eliza Elizabeth ATHEIS (see above) was Ann Marsh, who was baptised at Newark Parish Church 5 Jan 1814. She married William ATHEIS 13 Sep 1832 at the same church. Her parents were William Marsh and Elizabeth Hutchinson (see above), who married at the parish church 26 Apr 1812 and had three children that we know of: Luke (bap 1812), Ann and Hannah (born about 1824). William and Elizabeth lived in Tenter Buildings, Appleton Gate, Newark, at number 28 in 1816 but at number 12 from 1825 to at least 1851. William, a coal dealer, was born at some time between 1786 and 1791; his father was another William Marsh who died in 1825 or 1826 in Newark. He lived at 34 Tenter Buildings at least from 1816 until 1825.

SHAW
My wife's father was Harry Shaw, born in Mansfield in 1905, married in Sneinton in 1932 and eventually died in a nursing home in Balderton, but he in fact spent almost his entire life in Newark. He grew up in Smith Street, lived much of his married life in Hatton Gardens and then moved to Grange Road. He worked as an accounts clerk for Newark Council and then the Electricity Board, and was well known in the town. His wife was Connie Ward, who grew up in Mansfield Woodhouse.

His father was Francis Shaw, an iron moulder, who was born and died in Newark, but spent some time, including his early married life, in Mansfield. He was a very well-known and successful local angler. His wife was Sarah Jane Ball, who had grown up in Gornal, Staffordshire before moving to Mansfield.

The father of Francis Shaw was William Hutchinson Shaw, a miller, who seems to have spent his entire life living in the town. He married the Eliza Elizabeth Atheis mentioned above at the Independent Chapel in Lombard Street in 1852. His middle name was his grandmother's maiden name. He was baptised at the parish church 14 Nov 1826 and died at his home in Eggleston's Yard 3rd December 1873.

William Hutchinson Shaw's father was another Francis Shaw, and any help in tracing his origins would be most appreciated. According to the 1841 census he was born outside Nottinghamshire, but the 1851 says he was then 82 years old and had been born in Mansfield. We can find no trace of a baptism for him in that town. There was a Francis Shaw baptised at about the right time in Sutton-in-Ashfield, but that is neither outside the county nor Mansfield. He married Sarah Hutchinson (see above) at the parish church in 1807. He was a brush-maker, and died in 1852.

SMITH
The grandfather of the Eliza Elizabeth Athies mentioned above was a William Atheis who married Elizabeth Smith at the parish church 6 Jan 1798. Her parents were William Smith and Sarah Ashton, who married at the parish church 10 Jun 1777. William was baptised at the parish church 13 Jul 1755, and was the son of James Smith. That is all we know as yet of that family.
