Fairholm who lived at Shelford. Elizabeth's maiden name was Waterhouse.
Joseph and Elizabeth had two sons and one daughter. Joseph was an
agricultural labourer. Their eldest son, John, married Ann Stancer and
they had nine children - several of whom had some connection with
Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Joseph and Elizabeth's younger son, William,
married Elizabeth Allen (nee Sissons) and their daughter, Jane, married

She married David Brown in 1892. They had eight

Gedling & Carlton
|Gedling was a village to the
east of Nottingham. The parish of Gedling included Carlton which
expanded rapidly and became a suburb of Nottingham. Members of
the Gedling 1 and Gedling 2 branches lived in these settlements from
the 1760s to at least 1901. During this time the population of the two
settlements increased dramatically. The total was 1,373 in 1801 and was
over 11,100 by 1901. The map shows them in 1835. Gedling is the rather
spread out village top centre and Carlton is bottom centre. Both of the
settlements now form part of the greater Nottingham urban area.
The old postcard shows Main Road at Carlton about 1916.
