    Family Bible and Chair to be passed on to Family, Chapman/ Holt

    I have a contact, a friend of a friend who is downsizing and has in her possession these items that belonged to her late Sister's Husband and no heirs to pass them on to so this lady who has asked me for help to try and get them as close to family as we can.
    I am going to give her a link to the Forum to become a member so she can follow this thread so she will become member GT21 but I will give all the details she has given me from the Family Bible and Chair which are to go together as the chair is engraved with a Family members details.

    From the Bible (sorry clicked post by mistake)

    I have written this down as she gave it to me over the telephone so there may be a margin for error on my part but I am sure you will check the details first

    From the Bible

    Neville Chapman son of George and Jane born Barton on Humber March 8th 1848
    Eliza Jane Chapman daughter of John and Elizabeth Thompson born Appleby November 30th 1847

    Neville and Eliza Jane married 12 November 1872 Appleby Church
    daughter of NevilleAppleby Church and Eliza Jane, Kate Thompson Chapman born 1st March 1874 Barton on Humber Lincolnshire
    Annie Chapman born 10th May 1875? (not sure if I have copied this correctly it could be Annie Eliza)
    Eliza died Appleby 1875 17 May 1875 (possibly in childbirth)
    Kate Thompson Chapman married Arthur Holt April 13th 1890
    John Holt son of Arthur and Kate born Scunthorp 18th June 1899
    Annie Elizabeth Chapman married William Dann 19 March 1901 at Appleby Church
    Charles Edwin Holt son of Arthur and Kate born Scunthorp October 3rd 1910

    The Chair

    It is an adult sized chair inscribed with the words "Elizabeth Thompson her chair 1898" She was the First daughter of Neville and Eliza Chapman

    That concludes the information given to me by GT21 and if I have any of these details wrong then I am sure they will be put right when she joins the Forum

                  Welcome GT21 I can see you have made it on to the forum, there is no help as yet but I am sure someone will offer to send messages off to the tree holders on Ancestry soon, maybe after the weekend.

                    Just a quick answer, all those ancestry trees are the right family but none of them have either John of Charles descendant. John & Charles are on the 1911 census with their parents in Scunthorp, Lincolnshire. Can't find Kate on the 1881 census with a quick look but she is on the 1891 with her Thompson grandparents b Appleby Lincolnshire at Appleby, Lincolnshire.

                      Perhaps family members with more recent birthdates have not been added to, or are not showing up on, Ancestry trees for privacy reasons?

                        Thanks Tora,
                        I know the last owner of the property was a Holt but that line ended.
                        I had really hoped this Forum would take up the challenge to find descendants as I can't do it myself

                              Edna,

                              I can find nothing on John Holt. Charles E Holt married Catherine M Chapman at Scunthorpe 1939. He died at Scunthorpe June quarter 1962 b 1911 age 51. Could only find 1 child for them - Bryan Holt b 1939 mother Chapman at Scunthorpe died 2005 b 1939 at same place.

                                Yes Tora I think that is the right Family, sadly no heirs and the line has now died out so we really need to check the lines further back and try to find someone who will treasure these items as a family heirloom.

                                        Edna,

                                        Sorry I'm a little confused. "Elizabeth Thomas owner if the chair 1898". Is she the first child of Neville & Eliza Chapman, as I understood they only had 2 children, 1st Kate 1874 and Annie 1875.
