Hello

I'm looking for information on Peggy Varley:

Born Little Marsden approximately 1766/67
Married John Duerden on 9th Feb 1796
Children:
Elizabeth - 1796-1842
Richard - 1798-1879
James - 1800-1875
John - 1802-1875
Nancy - 1804
Mary - 1806-1870 (my direct descendant)
George - 1811-1898

There is a Peggy baptised in Burnley on Nov 29th 1767. Father James. No mother mentioned, and
Peggy baptised at Colne on 23rd Feb 1766. Father John. Mother Grace.

I've tried the Ray Duerden website but this gives the dual information above.

Any help, information very gratefully accepted.

Many thanks
Colleen

Hi Colleen
you say born about 1766/67. Can I ask what makes you think this?

I only ask because I saw a baptism in 1780 to a Richard & Mary and your Peggy's first born son is a Richard.

Peggy Varley
Date: 2 Jan 1780
St Bartholomew, Colne, Lancashire, England
Father Richard Varley
Mother Mary Varley

Hi Mel

Thanks for coming back to me.

The date was a guestimate based on the few Peggy Varley's baptised who may fit the bill and I'm not wedded to it. I can see your thinking here as this Peggy (via Lanc OPC) came from G Marsden. Sadly, I have no tangible evidence that she's 'mine'.

Thanks very much for your help.

Cheers
Colleen

It is frustrating when researching so far back with a popular name. Not always easy to confirm that you are barking up the right tree!!
