Robert Bramwell

died 1751

Father unknown
Mother unknown
Wife Ann Outfield
Children John, William, Robert, Elizabeth, Mary


The earliest mention of Robert so far found, is when he married Ann Outfield at St Peter's in Hope, on 30th September 1731 (1). By the autumn of 1734, if not before, they were living at Windmill, where their son John was born (2). They had two more sons - William in 1736 (3) and Robert probably in 1738 (9), then two daughters, Elizabeth in 1741 (4), and finally Mary in 1743 (5). Mary died before reaching the age of two (6).

Robert died in Windmill in March 1751, and was buried in Tideswell (7). (Windmill was officially in the parish of Hope, but is considerably nearer to Tideswell than to Hope village itself, which probably explains why all his children were baptized there too). His wife survived him by nearly 18 years (8). Robert appears to have been the progenitor of all the Windmill Bramwells.
