HALLOWES

" Lords of the Manor "

 

The name Hallowes has yeoman links in Derbyshire as far back as the 16th Century. It seems to stem from a particular
area of Dronfield where Hallowes Farm - meaning " Holy House " - used to stand.
 

Maria's grandfather, Gulielmi or William, was certainly present in Great Longstone in the mid 1600's.
He appears in the document " The Free and Voluntary Present 1661 Derbyshire " which concerned the giving of
money to enable the coronation of King Charles II which took place on 23 April 1661. He had actually succeeded
his father Charles I following his execution in 1849 but lived in exile in Europe until after the Civil War. On his return
he had insufficient funds to pay for his coronation and therefore, along with a grant from the government, people of means
were expected to donate funds to this event. William donated the sum of two shillings.


William then appears in the " Derbyshire Hearth Tax Assessments
1662-1670 " where he is shown as having one hearth.


Although farming seemed to be the usual occupation of the Hallowes males, William was in fact a " Chapman ".
This involved dealing or peddling goods and was usually the occupation of an itinerant who would travel between
villages selling their wares.


It is not known who or when William married but he did father at least six children:

Katheryn baptised 24 November 1657
Rogerus born 1658
Joseph baptised 16 August 1663
Elizabeth baptised 23 October 1664
Benjamin baptised 9 June 1667
(my direct ancestor)
Dorothy baptised 2 May 1669 and married Gulielmus Bomford 26 May 1687
..............................


Benjamin was the father of Maria who was baptised at Great Longstone on the 7th February, 1694.
Little is known about Benjamin other than he had six children:

Maria baptised 7 February 1694

Benjamin baptised 20 February 1699
Elizabetha baptised 9 April 1702 and married Robert Bagshaw
2 March 1719
Ellena baptised 26 December 1704
Franciscus baptised 2 November 1707
Sara baptised 20 March 1708

Maria and Radulphus Waterhouse were married at the Church of St Giles in Great Longstone on 9 February 1718
