|Scores of Martin's lived and worked
here, many ordinary framework knitters, textile workers,
agricultural workers, miners railway workers, shoemakers
etc, but a few who rose to be doctors or solicitors etc.I
have currently 28 family trees (of various lengths) of
Martins in Nottinghamshire, mostly sent to me by people I
have approached, and mostly dating from 1800
onwards. They mention the following places in
Notts, Basford, Beeston, Bilborough, Bullwell, Burton
Joyce, Eastwood, Hucknal, Kirkby in Ashfield, Lambley,
Nottingham, Nuthall, Radford, Selston, Shelford, Sheldon,
Strelley, Trowell, Wollaton.
If you have Martin ancestors that lived in Notts. and you would care to let me have names, dates, places etc, I would look if I can find a match and let you have details, including the name and address of the person supplying the original information
Please contact me only by post (not on the Internet)
An SAE would also be appreciated. Would also try to help with more general enquiries (but could not search censuses or archives).
I would be very pleased to receive any more trees.
Many Notts Martin families had members who came here from the surrounding Counties. I also currently hold many family trees of Martin in Derbyshire, and would be pleased to also share these .
So far I have been able to link 20 inquiries
