Aston-cum-Aughton and Treeton: Coal Miners

Published: April 21, 2008    Last modified: February 2, 2017

The England and Wales Census 1891 records 3 of the Allen sisters:

Sarah BUTROID (née Sarah ALLEN 1862-1943)
Hannah CUTTS (née Hannah ALLEN 1856-Deceased)
Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) my great grandmother,

All originally from Little Gringley, Nottinghamshire and all now married and living at Aston-cum-Aughton and nearby Treeton. Their respective husbands are all recorded as coal miners.

I am intrigued as to how the sisters found their way to this area. I conjecture Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) were forced to escape the poverty of living off the land at Little Gringley and seek a slightly more prosperous existence in the employment of the mine owners of the South Yorkshire coalfield. Likewise did the other sisters follow? Did they meet their husbands through the mining community or were they already married?

Daniel had left his home county of Cambridgeshire, presumably to seek work as a navvy on the railways or canals, both of which pass through Retford, Nottinghamshire and very close to Little Gringley.

I really need to study the relevant census information together with marriage certificates and maybe I can better ascertain when they made the transition from agricultural labourer to coal miner.

Earlier this year I wrote about coming upon Hannah CUTTS (née Hannah ALLEN abt. 1856-Deceased) and Frederick CUTTS abt.1885-Deceased living at Treeton, Rotherham, Yorkshire. To read this article please click here.

My great grandparents Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) lived close by at Aston-cum-Aughton. I presume all had relocated to this area to take up employment with local coal mining companies.

A few searches of the England and Wales Census 1901 show the family still living in this mining community. My transcription from the Census is as follows:

A major criticism of the 1901 Census is the poor quality of transcription: I must agree.

Notes:
Lily is no longer listed though an additional son Ernest is now shown. Is Elizabeth now 'Letty'? If so her age does not equate with that recorded in the England & Wales Census 1891. Curious.

Hannah Cutts (née Hannah Allen)

An online search confirmed my intuition:

Marriages Dec 1872
ALLEN Hannah, Rotherham
COE William Henry, Rotherham
CUTTS Frederick Thomas, Rotherham
GOLLAND Fanny, Rotherham

So is Hannah CUTTS (née ALLEN) Ziller ALLEN's sister?

Updates:
2007-08-31 Though I still do not have any documentary evidence this Hannah CUTTS is undoubtedly Hannah ALLEN, an older sister of Ziller JACKLIN (née ALLEN).

I found a reference to Little Gringley, Nottinghamshire, England on Treetonweb1891 Census. This page records an entry transcribed from the England and Wales Census 1891 for the CUTTS household in Treeton, Rotherham, Yorkshire, England and lists:

Little Gringley being the birthplace of Hannah CUTTS (neé Hannah ALLEN) and with Little Gringley being a sparsely populated hamlet, this could well be a clue worth saving for research into the ALLEN family. The village of Treeton is only a few miles from Aston-cum-Aughton and Swallownest where Daniel JACKLIN and Ziller JACKLIN (née ALLEN) lived after they were married.

The Treetonweb site is well worth browsing as it contains many interesting historical facts about the coal mining area Daniel and Ziller relocated to, presumably for Daniel to find work in the local coal mines.

Updates:
2017-10-12 The Treetonweb web site has been down for quite some time and is most likely 'dead'.
