Sargesons of Nottinhamshire and beyond

This family group of Sargesons is headed by Jane Sargeson for whom I’ve been unable to find much information. She had an illegitimate son with the father named as Timothy Corney in the baptism record. It isn’t clear whether or not Jane and Timothy married although the Descendants of Jane Sargeson report does seem to suggest that; it’s the software making the assumption rather than me.

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries Jane’s descendants seem to have stayed mostly in Nottinghamshire living in settlements near the River Trent. Then, most of them settled in Worksop where members of the family were carters and grooms. Some also settled in the Hunslet area of Leeds and worked in the iron foundries as labourers.

One member of the family, George Frederick Sargeson (1902-1978) spent time in both the USA and Australia before returning to the UK in 1960 when he gave his profession as manager. He later died in Hampshire.

Whilst I make every effort to verify the information included in these trees there is always the chance that I have made some mistakes. If you spot any or have any further information you are willing to share with me then do please contact me.
