I have added the family of John T OSCROFT 1845 & Annie Boot HARVEY 1855 to wardlehistory.tribalpages.com




John Thomas OSCROFT (1846 - 1885) married Annie Boot HARVEY (1855 - 1921) on 12 Apr 1875 at Nottm St John the Baptist.



They had a daughter Annie OSCROFT (1876 - 1922) who appears to have married Tom SULLEY on 13 Jul 1893 at Arnold St Mary - I hope to confirm which Tom SULLEY she married via Notts Archives in the near future.



Annie Boot HARVEY & John T OSCROFT were first cousins - both grandchildren of William OSCROFT 1784 & Sophia SHENTER 1788

I have completed the family of William OSCROFT 1810 & Sarah LAMIN 1809 - I was hoping the LAMIN connection would link in to my MELLORS tree but so far no such luck. William 1810 is one of 12 children of William OSCROFT 1784 so there is likely to be links
to other Arnold Families including the JEW family of Arnold

What an interesting site; thank you all. I was born on Cross St. in 1944., but was brought up on Coppice Road. I started school at Calverton Road infants - now apartments, I think - just about opposite the Seven Stars pub. Any body remember Ada Sulley'

I have just completed a family group sheet for William VARLEY who appears to have married at least 3 times - first marriage to Florence LANE (1874-1903) from Radford producing 4 VARLEY children (William abt 1896, Arthur 1897, Florence 1898, Thomas P 1900).
His second marriage in 1911 to Elizabeth HARTSHORN (1869-1911) was very short lived (married in Feb 1911 and by the end of Mar Qtr 1911 Elizabeth had passed on. I have been unable to confirm the later marriage but he is shown on the 1939 Register with a possible
wife named Kate bn 1879.



It would appear that Elizabeth HARTSHORN brought a little bundle with her to the marriage in the shape of Florence May HARTSHORN bn 1890



The DENHAM/HARTSHORN family connection for this family is:



John HH 1838 m 1956 Arnold St Mary Emma DENHAM 1835 -

|

Elizabeth HH 1869-1911 m in 1911 Arnold St Mary to William VARLEY 1871-1958

Neville Bougourd

I am looking for the family of a Polish airman who fought in 304 Squadron in the early days of WW2. His name was Wladyslaw Their and he was on the very first bombing mission ever undertaken by 304 Squadron. He had a daughter named Marlene who I believe
still lives in Arnold and I believe her married name is DOLTON.
If anyone can put me in touch with her, I would like to put her father on my 304 Squadron memorial site. This will not cost her a penny and will preserve her father's memory. I just need a
little information from her. If anyone knows her, please ask her to contact me on nevillebougourd@gmail.com Thank you.
The photograph shows her father receiving Poland's highest award for bravery - The Order of Virtuti Militari

Would anybody out there know anything about a pub that used to be on Mansfield Road opposite the Wagon and Horses at Redhill ?

Are any of you people out there familiar with a place in Arnold called Old Hall Yard.One of my ancestors was living on there when he died in 1874. It is at the back of the Greek restaurant. It appears on a map dated 1783, and there is still a bit of it
there(though I'm not 100% sure if it is the original structure). Could it be the oldest building in Arnold?

I have just discovered this site, and found it very entertaining. I was born on York Terrace (Blackbird Row) in 1936 and stayed in Arnold till 57when I moved over the hill to Calverton.I have lived in Burnley over 40 years now, so I have lost touch with
every one in Arnold.I was amongst the first pupils to go to the brand new Redhill Sec Mod School when it opened, moving from Robert Mellors.What a change that was, having girls in the same class!! I can remember when two1/9p at the Bonnington and supper at
Hatters was the highlight of the week. I also have very fond memories of good times in the 2nd Arnold St Marys Scout Troop, and the Arnold Swimming Club.What a backward step to knock the Baths and Library down. I'd love to hear from any of my "old" mates,
if they read this and remember me.

Hello again,

I am hoping someone will be able to share information and photos of the Jew Family that lived in Arnold from the 1790s to the present (perhaps). My father, David Jew, was the son of Thomas (butcher on Front St.) and Lucy Jew. The
family history was written by John T. JEW. Does anyone know about the family?

17. Sep, 2015

Peter Wilson

Great site.
I lived in Arnold from 1952 until 1994 when I moved to the USA.
I first lived on Duke Street until I was 5 and then moved to Deerleap Drive until I was married in 1973.
My father worked at Bestwood Colliery until it closed (not
sure of the date) he eventually finished his career at Calverton Colliery.
It is great that people put the effort that they do into sites like this. Most of us like to look back from time to time.

Craig Arnold

I was born in 1981 and have lived in Arnold since the late 1980s after moving from Old Basford. Due to family circumstances in the past, my given name became Arnold, but has links to both Smith and Bennett, with stronger links to the former.

As
a child, I have fond memories of my surroundings and clearly remember the old ice cream place and its van repair shop on High Street, which has since become a funeral business. I'm currently trying to trace an old black and white/colour picture of the site.

If
anybody can help provide an image that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello all.
I'm a member of staff at The Old Spot pub on Mansfield Road in Daybrook and I'm wanting to find out a bit more about the history of the place.
I know the pub was built in 1784? I'm just wondering if there are any photos of it from as
early as possible please. I'm very interested to see what we originally looked like!

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone from Arnold,
My name is Michael Tew (now retired and aged 68). I used to live at 1 Robin Hood Villas, Front Street - demolished around 1960 after the "Earth Tremmor" set fire to our house ( it was opposite the Robin Hood and little john
pub). I was born there in 1946 and attended Front Street Primary School and later, Robert Mellors off Worrall Avenue.
I now live in Melbourne, Australia, but have many fond memories of "old"Arnold including the old Library, Baths and Bonnington Picture

My family connections to Arnold goes way back in my own records to the early 1800s (great grandfather) at least and we were here probably earlier than that. I came to Daybrook from Mapperly at the end of the war in 1945 at the age of five when my father
became the retained leading fireman at Daybrook fire station and I have lived in Nottingham City/County since and have been at Bestwood Park for the last nine years and counting!!

Kathleen Betty Tipper nee Sanders

I was born in Daybrook in 1933 and we lived on Sherbrook Road - just beyond Sherbrook Terrace opposite Jacoby's factory. My mother's maiden name was Mottershaw and her father, William born 1860, lived on Brookfield and worked as a framework knitter at
Allen Sollys for over 50 years. From about 1918 - 1928 the Mottershaw family lived at The Poplars - a biggish, white house on Mansfield Road, Daybrook. Sadly, it's not there anymore but if anyone has any photos or knows anything about the house would they
please email me.
Thanks for producing a lovely website, it brought back such a lot of memories for me.

Greetings from the West Coast of Canada -
I've had a pleasant time rooting about on your site and am hopeful that someone can answer a question for me. My 4x great grandfather, Samuel Statham, was a hosier in the district and lived at "Arnold Grove"
until bankruptcy proceedings forced the sale of his house in 1807. Can someone tell me whether Arnold and Arnold Grove are two separate entities? I had always assumed that Arnold Grove was the name of the house but can find more than one family listed as living
there at the same time - the Williams family and the Turbutts - so am beginning to wonder whether it was a village rather than a residence.

I've been around the Arnold area all my life, went to Daybrook Infants/Juniors then Robert Mellors Secondary for Boys. Many of the places in the photographs on this site I can remember. I'm now researching my family history and was surprised to find that
a distant relative lived at "Albans Villas" Redhill in the 1891 Census. A map of Arnold/Daybrook in 1900 shows very few houses on St Albans Road and even less in Redhill. I went to see "The Cockleshell Heroes" at the Bonnington Picture House one Saturday afternoon
when about 10 years old and bought my first adult bike from Merrins Bike Shopper. It was a pink and grey Lincoln Imp.

Do you know what age group the children are in Image 2 of 'Do you recognise' at Daybrook School in 1926? My own father would have been 12 in that year but my unclues and aunt would have been 10, 7 and 5. It could be that one of them could have been in
the photo as one of the boys - in front & to the right of the teacher standing looks similar to boys in an old photo takenabout 1923 as attached. They lived on Sherbrook Road - the first house after Caddy's Foundry on the right hand side going up from Daybrook
Square.

my family were all from Arnold and we have lived here all our lives. We owned the Mill Cottage which was on the original Mill Lane on Cross Street. There is a lot of history surrounding the owners of the textile mill at Arnold Park, and the Mill where
we lived. I recognise most of the pictures of Arnold changing. Lovely to see

My descendants, the Hortons, inhabited about half of Cottage Row in the second half of the 1800s.
Fantastic website. Some great pictures.

All very interesting. I kept my pony in a paddock by the main road to Mansfield? in the 50s with my Friend Jenny whose parents ran the local dairy. I don't remember all those factories, just roads of houses. 50 years later I found that my ancestors, William and Elizabeth Abbott lived in Arnold. Sadly I can find no other details. I am doing research on riots in 18oos. Does anyone know anything about food/machine riots in Arnold at that time? Thanks for the connection.

Lovely to see photos of Arnold. I grew up in Arnold in 1950s and 1960s. I am currently researching Foster and Hopewell families. Now living in Australia. Photos brought back lots of memories.

I don't know if you are aware that you have a Waterloo veteran buried at St Marys Church in Arnold. His name was Thomas Sheldon born in Beeston in 1795 and was my great, great, great Uncle. He died and was buried in 1875 and fought at the famous battle and retired as a Chelsea Pensioner in 1840. If you would like more info then please contact me by email.
