Thomas FROGGATT married Jane BOWMAN on 1 December 1711 at Hope, Derbyshire. It is not certain that these are the parents of the children listed below but the names, locations and dates agree. There is an earlier marriage for a Thomas to Jane FURNIS in 1692 recorded at Baslow but this marriage would appear to be too early for births starting in 1714.

The earliest mention of this Froggatt family at Stoney Middleton is for the birth of Thomas to Thomas and Jane FROGGATT. There is some duplication of names in parish registers, presumably some of the children was not baptised twice.

John Froggatt - Alice Bachorn

John was the oldest child of Benjamin and Elizabeth. He married Alice BACHORN on 20 November 1809 at Hathersage. John and Alice had 6 children whose baptisms were recorded at Stoney Middleton:

George 14 April 1811
Elizabeth 31 Jan 1813 - 3 Sep 1815
Martha 2 April 1820
James 7 April 1822
Mary 14 May 1824
Henry 17 Feb 1828

John was the blacksmith at Stoney Middleton for many years. In 1841 the 3 youngest children were living with them, as well as their grand-daughter Jane:

In 1851 they had moved to Church St, Middleton, Eyam:

John died in 1851 shortly after the census and is buried at Stoney Middleton. His wife Alice died a few years later in 1860, at Shires, Cheshire but was buried at Stoney Middleton.


George FROGGATT - Ann (Thorpe) GREAVES and Maria (LAMB) RICHMOND and Elizabeth (Crossland) EARNSHAW

George married Ann THORPE in the March quarter, 1839 at Sheffield. Ann was born about 1821 in Sheffield according to the census information. George was a "white metal smith" later a "Britannia metal smith". Britannia metal is an alloy of 93% tin, 5% antimony and 2 % copper. It looked similar to pewter but was harder and easier to work,

George was married 3 times and had 6 children in total, 3 from his first wife and 3 from his second. The 1851 census also lists an "Allis" Froggatt, aged 11, so was born around 1839-1840. There are no births with similar names, nor is she in the 1841 census. I suspect she was Ann's daughter from her first marriage.

Jane 1837 Sheffield
William Mar 1839 Sheffield
Joseph Mar 1841 Sheffield
George 1849 Birmingham
Ann Jun 1850 Birmingham
Henry Jun 1852 Sheffield

In 1841, the family are living at "Hollis Croft", Sheffield, where George was a white metal smith. Note that their oldest daughter, Jane, was with George's parents on census night:

In 1851, George and family are living at Baily Field, Sheffield. George's wife is now Maria (likely to be Maria LAMB. There is a marriage in March quarter 1846 at Sheffield). The gap in the ages of the children between William) aged 13 and George aged 2 suggests that his first wife Ann died between mid-1841 and about 1848. There are several Ann Froggatt deaths in the index that would match.

In 1861 George is living with another new wife, Elizabeth and her sons Henry and John CROSSLAND at Bates St, Nether Hallam:

In 1871, Elizabeth is a widow, living alone as a charwoman at 72 Hermitage St, Ecclesall Bierlow, Sheffield:

Elizabeth Froggatt is not in the 1881 census, suggesting she had either died or remarried. There are no deaths for an Elizabeth of the right age, but there is a marriage between Elizabeth Froggatt and Edwin James Gregory, at Sheffield in the June quarter 1875. If this is the correct Elizabeth, she was again a widow by 1881, when she appears as Elizabeth Gregory, widow, aged 61 living at Stubley Hollow, Dronfield, her town of birth:

When Elizabeth married George Froggatt in mid-1858, she was a widow with 3 children (Henry b 1847, Mary 1848 William 1850) from her marriage to William CROSSLAND. William died in mid-1853. William had been married previously to Emma (?) and had two children (Frances 1836 and Edward 1838).


George Froggatt - Ellen ATHERTON

George married Ellen ATHERTON in the Dec quarter 1874 at Ecclesall Bierlow. They had 8 children:

Mary E. 1877
Annie Jun 1879
Ellen Dec 1881
George 16 May 1884
Herbert Jun 1887
James Sep 1889
Thomas 1893
Alice Sep 1894

In the 1871 census George is working as a bricklayers labourer in Ecclesall Bierlow:

In 1881, George and family are boarding at 17 Burgess St, Sheffield. George is a Brass Finisher:

In the 1891 census, George and family are at 9 Mary Place, Manchester. George is now a spring maker:

In 1901 they are at 5 Sunnyside Tce, Long Acre, Aston, East Birmingham. George is making garden tools:

In 1911 they are at 4 Prospect Tce, Long Acre, Aston, East Birmingham. George is still working with steel:

Ellen died in 1913 at Birmingham and George died 1916 at Aston.


George FROGGATT - Annie BRIDGE

According to his birth certificate, George was born at 19 Daisy Walk, Sheffield on 16 May 1884:

He married Annie BRIDGE in late 1913, registered at Prestwich (8d/560). George and Annie had 4 children:

Claude Ernest Sep 1914
Eric George Sep 1919
Raymond Lloyd Sep 1924
Elsie  

George's Will was dated 13 May 1931:


Raymond Lloyd - June TWAMLEY

Raymond and June were married in mid-1950 in Manchester. They had 4 children, all born in Manchester:

Barry Raymond Dec 1952
Wayne Robert Sep 1956
Cherryl June Mar 1959
