My Grandfather and Grandmother Hallam are at the Hucknall Torkard church yard I have visited their grave several times. Grandfather Hallam's mother was the housekeeoer at a wealthy house in the area, she obviously did more than keep house. Her husband, a Hallam, came to the house and found her pregnant with someone elses child, and disowned her. I do have a photo of her, she was a large beautful dark red headed lady, I do not know her maiden name. My Grandfather spent his formative years in this house. He had a tutor and learned Greek and Latin, he also had two half brothers who came to the USA as young men and who later went back to England and died there. When his benefactor died,he was fostered out to a family named Greene and grew up at Kirkby, a village close by. My Grandfather, as a young man, tried to share in his real father's inheritance, to no avail. He married into a gypsy family named Smith, and also missed out on that inheritance, he had married Martha Smith, who had a twin sister, do not know her name!!. He was an embittered youg man, but his education in Greek and Latin enabled him to study thebible and he became an itinerant preacher. He spent most of his life within a 20 mlile radius of Hucknall. He always said he had relative/conections with Macedonia!!.so I guess he was a Hallam in name only. I folow up on anyone from Hucknall Torkard Church hoping to find some conection to his real family. Hope you find who you are looking for. Joy Hallam!!!
