Ann

- 1748

Father unknown
Mother unknown
Husband William Allen
Children Robert, Samuel, William, Mary


Very little is known of Ann so far. Her birth/baptism cannot been traced until her marriage, and hence her maiden name, is found. The first record is that of her son Robert's burial on 18th October 1702 in Youlgreave (1). It states that William Allen and his wife Ann are "of Youlgreave", and while this probably means Youlgreave itself (as other entries are more specific) it may mean anywhere within the parish of Youlgreave.

By the time of their next son Samuel's baptism in December 1703 (2), the register specifically states they were from Conksbury, about a mile north of Youlgreave itself, but still in that parish. They were still there in 1707 when their son William was baptised (3). However by the end of 1712 when their daughter Mary was buried (4), they had moved about about a mile further north again to Over Haddon, which at that time lay in Bakewell parish.

Bakewell parish register records two burials for a William Allen of Over Haddon, in 1724 (5) and 1729 (6). Whilst these are almost certainly Ann's husband and son, it is not clear which is which. Until and unless further evidence comes to light, I have assumed that her husband died in 1724 and her son in 1729.

Ann died in 1748, and was buried in Bakewell on 1st April (7).
