John Fearnside and Hannah Walker

Part 1 of the Fearnside Family Tree

First Generation

1.

JOHN FEARNSIDE

Son of John Fearnside

Baptised 01 September 1698, Halifax.

Halifax Parish Register D53/1/9 p13

This entry in the register is almost illegible, but appears to read "John. f John Fearnside"

Married HANNAH WALKER 8 January 1727, Birstall.

Birstall Parish Register, D5/6.

John and Hannah had the following children:

The groom is referred to as "John Fearnside of Toftshaw".
We cannot prove that the John Fearnside of these records is the same John who was father of Benjamin etc. as only the names of fathers were included on the baptismal records of the time. The fact that both John and Benjamin named their eldest daughters Hannah is persuasive but not conclusive.

Sarah's maiden surname was normally written as "Duce" in Scotland. By 1800, Dews had become (and remains) the standard spelling in Dewsbury. It is a historic name which is totally unconnected with the place name. Sarah's birth is recorded as "Dewse" and earlier spellings include "D'Ewes" and "D'Ewse".

Baptised 26 December 1785, Ossett

Dewsbury Parish Register, D9/7 p115

Married JOSEPH SPURR 26 December 1815, Wakefield

IGI: M071651

1851 census - Little Town End, Ossett - Sarah Bolton, Widow, Shopkeeper.
Also in household is John Fearnsides, 68, Brother, Widower, Retired Grocer. Until finding this, we had no record of this John. Since he is described as Sarah's brother, he can only be a hitherto undiscovered son of Benjamin who fits neatly into the gap of nearly four years between the birth of Joseph (bap Jan 1782) and Sarah (bap Dec 1785). Also present is John W Spurr, 11, grandson. Joseph Spurr married Sarah in Wakefield, 1815 - so it appears that Mr Bolton was her second husband

Buried in Rathven Old Cemetery.

There are reports that Nathan was born in Leeds in 1805 and subsequently baptised in Ossett (1808). We have seen no evidence to support this. All the information is consistent with a birth date of 1808, but the name Nathan occured in other branches of the Fearnside family and it is possible that the researchers concerned confused our subject with one of the others. On the other hand, there is always the possibility that they are correct and that Nathan's age was stated incorrectly throughout his life on wedding and death certificates and census forms.

JAMES FEARNSIDE

Son of Thomas Fearnside and Helen Robertson
Baptised 3 March 1822, Bellie, Moray.

GROS: 126/00 0003.

American tradition has it that James was the first of Thomas and Helen's children to be born in the United States. However, the record showing his birth to "Thomas Fairnside and Helen Robertson" was found in the search for my great grandfather James Fearnside (born in Bellie at almost the same time). In the absence of documentary evidence of the American claim, that must surely be discounted.     In adulthood, settled in Michigan, USA.
Just to confuse matters, Thomas Fearnside (78), son of James Fearnside (33), was born in New York in 1824 - and subsequently married and lived in Scotland.
