Hi, What a great site. I am just beginning to trace my grandmother's family, they were Warringtons from Tilton on the Hill, later from Barsby.
Thanks for entering the Warrington births on this site from the Church registers. They are all 'mine'.

Thank you for making such a lovely lot of material freely available. I hope that the DEVONSHIREs and DENSHIREs I have found close to Billesdon will prove useful in matching into my family.

This is a fantastic resource.My husbands grandparents lived in Tilton and Halstead.His grandfather was a Scattergood and they were Agricultural Labourers and we would love to know who they worked for.His grandmothers name was Burton and they kept the postoffice in the late 1800`s.
Thankyou for all your hard work!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fantastic site, very interesting and informative.
Some of my ancestors, the Grangers, lived at Tilton in the 1800s. My great-grandfather Francis Granger eventually left the village and became a stable-hand at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. It was there he met my great-grandmother, and they settled in Leicester.
