Troth Shore was Ari’s 8x great-grandmother. She was born in Darley Dale, Derbyshire, in 1725 and baptised on 5 March. Pigot’s Directory from 1835 tells us that:
“DARLEY DALE is a hamlet, in the parish of Darley, which is partly in the hundred of Wirksworth, but chiefly in the hundred of High Peak, lying on the road between Matlock Bath and Bakewell, about five miles from either place. The situation of this hamlet is one of great beauty, being seated in a lovely valley, upon the banks of the Derwent.” (See http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/DBY/DarleyDale)
Her father was Roger Shore, but her mother isn’t mentioned in the baptism record. At the age of twenty-three she married John Kitchen. I have just discovered that he was from Bonsall (and also his age, which was twenty-seven). This is recorded on the marriage licence document, included in Findmypast’s collection of the Dioceses Of Lichfield & Coventry Marriage Allegations And Bonds, 1636-1893:
I have found records for five or six children: John (probably born in 1749, died in 1752); Robert (born and died in 1751); Elizabeth (born in 1755); Roger (born in 1757); Sarah (born in 1759); and Betty (died in 1764 – I think this could be Elizabeth):
It seems as though they were living in Bonsall, as all the children were baptised there.
I have just found a burial date for her: 22 Feb 1794, in Bonsall.
Ari, this is how you are related to Troth:
