Nicholas Redfern

circa 1665 - 1717

Father Robert Redfern
Mother Anne
Wife Margaret Cooper
Children William, Robert, Anne


Nicholas was probably born in Abney around 1665, the second son of Robert and Anne (1), his elder brother Dennis having been born in 1662 (2). His sister Hannah was born in 1669 (3), then another brother William in 1672 (4), before youngest sister Alice in 1676 (5).

He married Margaret Cooper on 29th April 1688 at St Peter's in Hope (6), and their first son William was born just under a year later (7), and then Robert in 1694 (8). His only daughter Anne was born in 1698 (9).

His mother having died in 1695 (10), he faced a double blow when his wife Margaret died in January 1699 (11), then his father too just three months later (12).

Nicholas married for a second time in May 1706, to Hester Frost from Great Hucklow (13). They didn't have any children.

He died in February 1717 (14). Hester survived him by 18 years (15).
