The family gossip is that I am related via my maternal great grandma to Florence Nightingale. Does anyone have a full family tree for Florence so that I can check whether it's just a tall story told one Sunday afternoon to amuse the relations or whether it's true. My great grandma's name was Sarah Anne Hardwick (later Bacon). Her parents were Joseph Hardwick and Selina Thompson and her paternal grandparents were Robert Hardwick and Esther Slack. All the family were from Heath but on the deeds to Press Farm in Press near Ashover, Derbyshire say that a family called Hardwick owned the farm for a number of years. Apparantly Sarah Ann remembered Florence visiting her on horseback somewhere round Ashover.
