Re: Derby/Notts Slaney's
I have Slaney's in my family tree from the Pleasley/Pleasley Hill area which is on the Notts/Derbys border.
My GG grandfather was Henry Slaney (born c1840 in Pleasley Hill, Mansfield.He married anEliza (possibly Eliza Lucas born c1844 in Shirebrook). I think Henry's parents were John and Harriett though I am still researching this.
Henry and Eliza's son, Harold (also born at Pleasley Hill) was by great grandfather.
Henry, then later Harold worked as Beerhouse Keeper at the Pleasley Hill Beerhouse (The Plough Inn).
The Slaney branch of my family is one I am currently looking into.Do you think there might be a link in our trees?
