Hercules Bingham

died 1734

Father unknown
Mother unknown
Wife Elizabeth Low
Children Adam, Margaret, Robert, William, Ann


Nothing is yet known of Hercules' early life, but I suspect he may have originated in Hope parish, possibly in or around Little Hucklow. By January 1708 he was resident in Tideswell parish, where he married Elizabeth Low of Litton (1).

They set up home in Litton, and their first son, Adam, was born there later that year (2). They had a daughter Margaret in 1811 (3), then another son, Robert, in 1813 (4). Their eldest son Adam died in 1814 (5). In 1815 they had another son William (6), and their youngest child was Ann, born in 1722 (7).

Hercules died in 1734, and he was buried in Tideswell on 19th March (8). His wife lived for a further 19 years, dying in 1753 (9).
