Alice Cundy of Old Brampton

Alice was Ari’s 8x great-grandmother. She was born in 1712 in Old Brampton, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, the daughter of John and Mary.

Here is her baptism record, in Latin:

Derbyshire, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 on Ancestry.co.uk


The baptism took place at the church of St Peter & St Paul on the 1st of June, 1712.

The church booklet says that “Old Brampton lies on the ancient road westward across the moors; for many centuries this was the only way from Chesterfield to Baslow and beyond”.

On 18 Aug 1734, Alice married Matthew Thickett in the same church. He was a cordwainer. Their daughter Sarah (Ari’s 7x great-grandmother) was their first child, born in 1735. As usual in this period before the national census, the only evidence we have of Alice is the baptisms of her children, in this case up until 1757 when her daughter Alice was born, although she doesn’t get a mention:

Derbyshire, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 on Ancestry.co.uk


We know that she died in May 1797 and was buried at the church on the 31st.

Derbyshire, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812. 


The above entry is from the Old Brampton Waste Book, which describes where the burials took place, and also how people are related. It says that she is buried on the south side. The church also contains a helpful plan:

Unfortunately, we still didn’t manage to find the grave!
