* Keith points out that Samuel Sandy alias Dore was born in Nottingham on December 10th 1845, the illegitimate son of widow Elizabeth Sandy (nee Sissons) and Samuel Dore.
** The Derby Mercury (Feb 8th 1871) records that at Ripley Petty Sessions, on February 6th, Samuel Doar was charged by James Merry, the Market Place ironmonger, with stealing one shilling in copper, from his shop, on January 31st. The charge was not proved and thus the case was dismissed. However, at the same court, Samuel was found guilty of being in the ironmonger’s shop for an unlawful purpose and was sentenced to two month’s imprisonment. And so off to Derby Jail !!
*** After the marriage of John Meadows and Mary Stenson in July 1849, the births of several of their children were registered at Ilkeston, when Mary was recorded as ‘Mary (Freeman)’ or ‘Mary (Hardy)’ or ‘Mary (late Hardy formerly Freeman)’.
