Posted by Laura Huey on March 19, 2002 at 23:17:52:

Has taken a while but have finally got info. on my Shirley connection and am wondering if anybody else is looking for my shirleys too.

My line begins with:

Edward Shirley m. Barbara living in Meckworth, Derby (prob. b. 1720s/30s). They have 3 kids:
Edward (who goes to America)
William (who goes to Manchester)
Arthur (not much known prob. b. 1750s). Arthur has 2 kids:
George Shirley (b. 1786; d.1857; moves to Tamworth, Staff. and marries Mary Hunter; bunch of kids).
Elizabeth who marries a William Freeman.

 

Would be keen to find another Derby Shirley hunter.

Cheers, Laura
