Pentrich & The Revolution Files

Click to Enter

After some years of researching my own family history, I made a connection which has since taken priority over all my personal research. I was researching my paternal Grandmothers line; the TAYLOR�S who owned the funeral directors on Devonshire Square at Sutton-in-Ashfield. I did all the normal routes of research, IGI, census, parish records etc... I eventually worked back to William & Mary TAYLOR who were both stated (on census) as being from South Wingfield. This led back further when I received copies of the South Wingfield Parish registers on microfiche. I traced William & Mary back through to Benjamin TAYLOR & Mary (Mally) LUDLAM & I continued to find brothers, sisters and the general family at large. I found that Isaac LUDLAM was brother of My 5th Great Grandmother Mary LUDLAM.

The LUDLAM/TAYLOR information had been hanging about for some months when I decided to treat myself to a somewhat extravagant purchase, I decided to buy Gladwin Turbutts - �A History of Derbsyhire� (4 Volumes). When the books arrived I sat down and had a good look through the index to see if there were any familiar surnames & I found that Isaac LUDLAM was listed as being involved in the Pentrich Revolution of 1817.

Since then... I have immersed myself in the story of the revolution & collected many resources & documents, many have no been transcribed and freely available online


I would just like to say that I would love to hear from anybody who also has information, connections or interests to the Pentrich Revolutionaries ... Thanks Helen Wilson
