Connection to Clayton-le-Moors or Oakenshaw Grimshaw Family Line

Attempts have been made, so far unsuccessfully, to connect Thomas Grimshaw to the Clayton-le-Moors Grimshaw line or its derivative, the Oakenshaw Grimshaw line. Shown below is one of these attempts from the Lawrence and Mary (Duckworth) Grimshaw webpage.

A connection of the Thomas Grimshaw line back to the Eccleshill and Clayton-le-Moors line has been made on a tentative basis with the assistance of Kimberley Cramer-Vredeveld through a series of exchanges on Genforum, at the following website address:

Thomas Grimshaw/ Sarah Ryley

September 12, 2001

I am trying to find out who Thomas Grimshaw and his wife’s parents are. Thomas was born May 1, 1701 in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, England. Sarah was born about 1706 in the same place. They were married onNov 23, 1727 in Church, Lancashire,England. Their son George Grimshaw born about 1739 in Stanhill,Lancashire,England. His wife Betty was born about 1741 in Stanhill, Lancashire,England. Their son Thomas (born about 1765 in Stanhill) was married to Susan Fielden (born about 1769 in Stanhill). Their son Lawrence was married to Mary Duckworth. I have the rest of the line on down. I am trying to work on the it the rest of the way up.. Help?

Thanks, Kimberly

The fact that Thomas and Sarah were from Ostwaldthistle would indicate that he originated from the Clayton-le-Moors line rather than the more junior (but more pervasive) PendleForest line, as shown in Thomas D. Whitaker. The descendant charts of the two lines are shown on the “Grimshaw Origins” website on the following two pages:

http://tomwgrim.home.texas.net/WebPages/EarlRecd.htm

(now http://grimshaworigin.org/early-prominent-grimshaw-families/earliest-recorded-grimshaw-family/)

http://tomwgrim.home.texas.net/WebPages/PendLine.htm

(now http://grimshaworigin.org/early-prominent-grimshaw-families/the-pendle-forest-line-of-grimshaws/)

Thomas and Sarah don’t seem to be shown on either chart. Thomas would have been born about the time that Clayton-le-Moors was passing from the Grimshaws to the Lomaxes.

A “most-probable candidate” for your Thomas’ father might be “Thomas, mar. Jane, widow of William Duddell, of Longridge” (as shown on Whitaker’s descendant chart for the Clayton-le-Moors line), who would probably have been about the right age to be your Thomas’ father. This Thomas was the son of Nicholas and Helen (Rishworth) Grimshaw.

Just a guess though! Tom

Thank you for this information. Someone else saw my request and said that Thomas’ father was Thomas Grimshaw born around 1676 and died 8 may 1725. He was married to a Jane Ellison on30 jan 1700 in Lighthurst,Lancashire, England. So it does seem that the information you gave me seems to fit. Does this mean that they are a descendant of the original Grimshaw?

Examination of Thomas D. Whitaker’s descendant chart (shown on the Grimshaw Origins website at http://tomwgrim.home.texas.net/WebPages/EarlRecd.htm) shows that “Thomas, mar. Jane, widow of William Duddell, of Longridge” is in the 13th generation after Walter de Grimshaw, progenitor of the most senior (known) line of Grimshaws.

Tom

Based on this exchange, the descendant chart was extended on a tentative basis as shown below:

Nicholas Grimshaw & Helen Rishworth

|—–Thomas Grimshaw (About 1676 – 8 May 1725) & Jane Ellison Dudell Grimshaw. Married 30 Jan 1700.

|—–|—–Thomas Grimshaw (1 May 1701, Oswaldtwistle – ) & Sarah Ryley (1706, Oswaldtwistle – ). Married 23 Nov 1727.

|—–|—–|—–George Grimshaw (About 1739 – ) & Betty (About 1741 – )

|—–|—–|—–|—–Thomas Grimshaw (About 1765 – ) & Susan Fielden (About 1769 – )

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Lawrence Grimshaw (6 Oct 1782 – ) & Mary Duckworth (4 Apr 1786 – )

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–James Grimshaw (20 Feb 1837 – )

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Mary Grimshaw (9 Mar 1838 – ) & William Atkinson (About 1834 – )

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Duckworth Grimshaw* (3 Mar 1842 – ) & Mary Jane Moyes (6 Jun 1850 – )

Images from Thomas D. Whitaker’s descendant chart for the earliest recorded (Eccleshill and Clayton-le-Moors) line of Walter de Grimshaw (see companionwebpage) — showing Thomas Grimshaw (m. Jane Ellison Dudell) and Nicholas Grimshaw (m. Helen Rishworth), as well as their connections back to Walter de Grimshaw — are shown below.

The complete descendant chart, if the above hypothesis is correct, is shown below:

Walter de Grimshaw

|—–Henry de Grimshaw

|—–|—–Adam de Grimshaw

|—–|—–|—–Henry Grimshaw & Agnes unknown

|—–|—–|—–|—–Adam de Grimshaw & Cecily de Clayton

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Henry de Grimshaw (? – 1409) & Johanna Shuttleworth

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Robert Grimshaw & unknown

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Henry Grimshaw (ca 1442 – ?) & Isabel Rishton

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Henry Grimshaw (1467 – 1507) & Alice Tempest

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Thomas Grimshaw (? – 1539) & Elizabeth Harrington

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Nicholas Grimshaw (1586 – 1642) & Helen Rishworth

[The death date date of Nicholas needs to be confirmed. He appears to have died too early to be the father of Thomas m. Jane Dudell.]

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Thomas Grimshaw (About 1676 – 8 May 1725) & Jane (Ellison?) Dudell Grimshaw. Married 30 Jan 1700.

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Thomas Grimshaw (1 May 1701, Oswaldtwistle – ) & Sarah Ryley (1706, Oswaldtwistle – ). Married 23 Nov 1727.

|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–|—–Duckworth Grimshaw* (3 Mar 1842 – ) & Mary Jane Moyes (6 Jun 1850 – )

Evidence from the summary descendant chart from the Williams’ website (shown near the top of this webpage) is shown below.

Thomas Grimshaw (About 1648 – SeeNotes) & Mrs Thomas Grimshaw (About 1652 – )

|—Lawrence Grimshaw (4 Jan 1676 – 8 May 1725) & Jane Ellison (About 1680 – )

|—|—Thomas Grimshaw (1 May 1701 – ) & Sarah Riley (Ryley) (1704 – )

|—|—|—George Grimshaw (1730 – 1812) & Elizabeth Fielden (1730 – )

|—|—|—|—Thomas Grimshaw (1759 – ) & Mary (Susan) Fielden (About 1873 – )

|—|—|—|—|—Lawrence Grimshaw (6 Oct 1782 – 1843) & Mary Duckworth (4 Apr 1786 – )

|—|—|—|—|—|—John Grimshaw* (12 Nov 1811 – 25 May 1894) & Alice Whittaker (28 Dec 1809 – 30 Nov 1876)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Elizabeth Grimshaw* (27 Feb 1840 – 4 Sep 1921) & David Davis Rees (19 Oct 1828 – 19 Jan 1894)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Elizabeth Grimshaw* (27 Feb 1840 – 4 Sep 1921) & John Greenhalgh (27 Jul 1838 – )

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Elizabeth Grimshaw* (27 Feb 1840 – 4 Sep 1921) & Richard Greenalch (1845 – )

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Duckworth Grimshaw* (3 Mar 1842 – 23 Jun 1926) & Mary Jane Moyes (6 Jun 1850 – 11 Jul 1934)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Duckworth Grimshaw* (3 Mar 1842 – 23 Jun 1926) & Ellen Muir (12 Feb 1855 – 6 Jul 1930)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Sarah Ann Grimshaw (5 Jan 1849 – 25 May 1914) & Joseph Hyrum Cartwright (6 Mar 1845 – 2 Mar 1919)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Alice Grimshaw (7 Jan 1852 – 9 Jun 1924) & James William Atkin (10 Jul 1845 – 5 Mar 1900)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—James Grimshaw (20 Feb 1837 – 1837)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Susannah Grimshaw (18 Dec 1845 – 1846)

|—|—|—|—|—|—|—Mary Grimshaw (9 Mar 1838 – 24 Sep 1905) & William Atkinson (About 1834 – )

This descendant chart adds a generation (Lawrence Grimshaw m. Jane Ellison), which helps solve the gap between Nicholas Grimshaw (m. Helen Rishworth) and Thomas Grimshaw, Lawrence’s father. But the connection of Thomas to Nicholas Grimshaw becomes more problematic, since Lawrence’s father, Thomas, may not have been the Thomas who married Jane Duddell. That is, the Jane Duddell who married Thomas Grimshaw is apparently not the Jane Ellison who married Lawrence Grimshaw.

Thus the connection of Thomas to the Clayton-le-Moors line is still inconclusive.

Where is Oswaldwistle in Lancashire?

Oswaldwistle is located near Blackburn, northwest of Manchester. Maps of the area around Oswaldwistle are shown below.
