William Butroid and Rebecca Butroid (née Rebecca Bowering): Church of All Saints, Misterton, Nottinghamshire

Church of All Saints, Misterton, Nottinghamshire

After walking part of the Chesterfield Canal from West Stockwith towards Gringley-on-the-Hill we decided to return by way of the north Nottinghamshire village of Misterton. This gave me the opportunity to take some photographs of the Church of All Saints, Misterton and check the headstones for family names. This graveyard is immaculately kept and congratulations must go to the person or persons responsible.

William Butroid d.1886
Rebecca Butroid d.1895

By sheer chance the first headstone I checked (shown in the photograph above) was that of one William BUTROID and his wife Rebecca BUTROID (née Rebecca BOWERING).

My great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) had a sister Sarah BUTROID (née Sarah ALLEN 1862-1943) who married Jesse BUTROID 1862-1943. Jesse was born at West Butterwick and Jesse's father John BUTROID 1840-1921, was born at East Stockwith, just across the River Trent from West Stockwith and Misterton.

At this moment in time I am not sure where William and Rebecca BUTROID fit into the family tree, but as far as I am aware this is the only connection the JACKLIN line has with Misterton.

Unusually in these times of theft and vandalism the church was open and I was able to take a few photographs of the interior together with a couple of the stained glass windows. As usual the exterior proved more of a problem, strong sunlight prohibited some angles and 'street furniture' proved invasive on others.

Descendants of my great grand aunt Sarah ALLEN 1862-1943 are linked to the north Lincolnshire villages of Owston Ferry and West Butterwick. This area, the most north-westerly part of Lincolnshire, is more commonly known as the Isle of Axholme, due to it's location between the rivers Trent, Nidd and Old Don.

So far my research of Jesse BUTROID 1862-1943 has failed to discover a great deal of additional information.

I did find on Google, a cached family history page recording an earlier Jesse BUTROID born in 1802 at East Ferry, Lincolnshire, England. A reference is made to the fact that Jesse BUTROID also went by the name of Jesse BUTTERY, a surname I have come across on my research into BELLAMY. I have made a note of the details since it may prove useful for future research.

I also found a surname list which includes BUTROID on this family history site: "Ancestors of John Heaton Gray" (Geocities closed in 2009). This is interesting because some of the BUTROIDs listed were born at Butterwick, Lincolnshire, England. It could well be that 'Jesse' is not his 'official' name.

While researching my previous 2 posts re: Zillah ALLEN, I came across this record (which as it turns out, I already have) from the England and Wales Census 1891. It records Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née ALLEN) 1858-1949 living at Aston-cum-Aughton so I decided to browse through some of the other households in the same area with a hunch that other members of the family may have relocated to the same area in order to find work in the coal mines. I eventually found this entry:

FHJ Ref: 013

According to this entry Sarah BUTROID was born in Little Gringley, Nottinghamshire, England. Intuition told me that this could well be Sarah BUTROID (née Sarah ALLEN).

An online search eventually produced the result I had expected:

Marriages in the district of East Retford for the period Dec 1884: Jesse BUTROID married Sarah ALLEN.

The dates are what I would expect.My only concern now is that some of the children I have linked to John ALLEN 1831- of Little Gringley, Nottinghamshire, England are still based on conjecture.
