I am trying to document everything I can find on my Family History. I am now having a close look at my Liddiard tree and adding more details to the family story. The Liddiards are also associated with Kings of Harwell and I'm trying to ascertain how all these Kings are related.

If you should want to join me in the quest to find the story of my ancestors please contact me with details, of how you fit into my Family Tree, and I will give you access to do this. Anyone else can freely view most material on people who are no longer living and contribute to the more general stories. You can comment on anything on this web site without logging in.

The First Aldermen on Northamptonshire County Council

 The Northampton Mercury of 2nd February 1889 reported on the first ever meeting of Northamptonshire County Council, when seventeen Aldermen were elected by the elected members. The paper reported on the qualities of each Alderman, it appears to have had a distinctly Liberal bias but the Council had a Conservative majority.. Samuel Dunkley, my Great Grandfather was a Liberal and the report on him was very favourable.

Dunkleys in the Manor Rolls of Nobottle Grove

The Orders and By Laws for the Mannor of Nobottle Grove in 1739 were little different to those applicable before that date as can be seen from the fines Dunkleys paid. These incidents involving Dunkleys tend towards William following on from John in Little Brington (Brington Parva).

Rental of Farm - William Dunkley Little Brington 1743 - 1805

 In 1743 an Act of Parliament was passed to enable the Inclosure of the open fields in Brington. William Dunkley rented a farm on a three year term from John Spencer. William had been renting one and three quarter yard lands in the Open fields of Brington, his rent in 1733/4, 1742/3 and 1743/4 was £14 a year.  I am going to try and trace this tenancy forwards to see if his son William takes over the tenancy and backwards to see if his father John had the equivelant land before inclosure.
