1751 - 1833

Father William Holme
Mother Elizabeth Roberts
Wife Ann Bagshaw
Children William, Peter, Thomas, Betty Roberts, Richard, Robert Matthew, Mary


Peter was born in Brushfield in 1751, the youngest son of William & Elizabeth, and baptised at Taddington on 7th November (1). He had older siblings Thomas, Richard, Ellen, William, Grace, Elizabeth, Mary and Ann (2).

Nothing is known of him until the time of his father's will in 1777, when Peter was made sole executor and main beneficiary, set to inherit lands in the liberty of Taddington and the parish of Tideswell (3). He was duly granted probate (4) following his father's death three years later (5).

He married Ann Bagshaw, also from Brushfield, on 30th July 1781 in Bakewell (6). Their eldest son, William, was born the following year (7), then another son Peter in 1784 (8). His mother died just a couple of weeks or so later (9). Their next son Thomas was born in 1787 (10), and then their first daughter, named Betty Roberts after his mother, followed in 1790 (11). Son Richard came along in 1793 (12), then Robert in 1796 (13), and Matthew in 1800 (14). Finally their youngest child, Mary, was born in 1803 (15), but she died aged just one (16).

Their son Peter died aged just 24 around New Year 1809 (17), and then his wife Ann, aged 57, in 1818 (18).

Peter wrote his will in 1832 (19), but then lived for another year, dying on 6th April 1833 (19). He was buried three days later in Taddington (20).
