I have recently found an old tree that belonged to my grandfather which contains research from pre-computer times and unfortunately I find the early parts of it to be vague.On the off-chance that someone out there can fill in the missing peices I'll copy some of it out here.
Hugh Hindley(1305), Adam(1332), Robert, etc. to Robert Hindley of Hindley Hall(1613).Robert had three sons who were 1. Ralph of Sharkerley(1646), 2. John of Aspull(1648) and 3. Roger of Pemberton(1654).
1. Ralph of Shakerley(1646), to Henry of Shakerley(1669), to Hugh(mention of kinsman Henry), to Ralph(1723) to Ralph(1755) to John.
2.John of Aspull(1648), to Richard, Carpenter of Overhulton(1675), to Charles of Astley(1744), Charles the Blacksmith(1696), to Charles of Astley(1744) etc...
3.Roger of Pemberton(1654) had two children Elizabeth, who married Roger Bradshaw, and Hugh.Hugh to Ralph of Shakerley, to Henry of Manchester(1688-1781), to Robert Hindley(1741) married to Lattice Hardman, to William(1779) married to Elizabeth Johnson, to Hugh Johnson Hindley married to Elizabeth Mort, to William Talbot Hindley(1845) married to Caroline Scott.
It is the 3rd son, Roger of Pemberton, that I am most interested in but oviously anything before or after him would be greatly appreciated.
This tree starts off with mention of a possible connection with John de Hyndley, knighted at Agincourt 1413, a follower of Sir Thomas Erpingham of Norwich.His son William built the Erpingham Gate at Norwich and was afterwards Master Stonemason at York Minster where he spent thirty years carving the Rood Screen to support and save the main tower, (1473 - 1503).It also has some information from Godfrey the Bearded(1065 - 1069) and his sons Godfrey de Bouillon(1087 - 1100), Eustace III Elder Brother who married Mary of Scotland, and Godfrey the Hunchback(1069 - 1076)and previous to this back to Charlemange, however, I believe this link is stretching things somewhat.
Please contact me if you have any information on this branch of the Hindley family or leave a posting on this site.
