George Eyre

1693 - 1766

Father Thomas Eyre
Mother Ann Bagshaw
Wife Ann Stainrod
Children Thomas, Francis, Mary Ann, George, Joseph, John


George was born in Abney in 1693, the eldest son of Thomas & Ann (1). He had two elder sisters, Mary and Hanna (2), but Mary died the following year (3). Another sister, Alice, was born in 1697 (4), then a brother Joseph in 1700 (5). Joseph died in 1705 (6), and another brother Francis, whose date of birth is not known, died in 1709 (7).

He married Ann Stainrod of Hathersage, at Hathersage, on 29th November 1719 (8), and they settled back in Abney where their first child Thomas was born in 1721 (9). Unfortunately Thomas only lived for about six months (10).

Their next son, Francis, was born in 1723 (11), followed by daughters Mary in 1725 (12) and Ann in 1727 (13). Next were sons George in 1730 (14), Joseph in 1733 (15), and finally John in 1738 (16)

It seems that his wife had probably inherited half of her father's lands in Hathersage sometime before 1744, as his (apparent) brother in law John Jowett of Abbeydale, then a prisoner, granted a lease on the other moiety to George and Anne, on condition that John's debts were settled, and his son provided for (17)(18). In 1762 George raised a mortgage against the property (19).

George died in 1766, and was buried in Hope on 21st November (20)

  18. The exact relationships aren't clear, as very few parish register entries are still extant to help clarify things. George's wife Anne is named as John Jowett's son John's aunt, and the property is to revert to her in John junior has no issue. This implies that John Jowett senior was married to Anne's sister. The documents D6123/24/22-36 at Derbyshire Record Office (some of which are transcribed on this and other pages) illustrate the possession of the Hathersage estate from the 17th to 19th centuries, and as the lands were split into moieties after George Stainrod (Anne's father) was granted them whole (D6123/24/24), but back as single estate by the death of George and Anne's son Francis, the implication is that Anne inherited one moiety. This is not certain though, as John Jowett sold a moiety to Francis Eyre (George and Ann's son) in 1758 (D6123/24/26). This could be the sale of the moiety already leased to George, or it could be the other moiety, meaning that John Jowett had once held the entire estate. Further confusion occurs as George mortgages a moiety in 1762 even though the whole estate appears to in his family's hands at the time (D6123/24/27). It is also unclear which John Jowett makes this later sale, as another document (D6123/24/33) appears to show that John junior died about 1745/46.
