DNA Project

The Kelsall DNA Project has been established at Family Tree DNA, and it is ready for participants to join and order a test kit. Full details about testing methods and the scientific basis are at the Family Tree DNA web site.

 

The Kelsall Group Project website will include results as they become available.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The test we are using is the Y DNA which tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time.  You must be male to take this test, and you should have the Kelsall surname or one of the variants such as Kelsell.  If you believe there is another Kelsall variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate.  If you are female, you can perhaps find a direct line male to participate, to represent your tree.

 

We encourage males to order a Y DNA test for 37 markers. The current price for the Y-DNA 37 is $149 plus postage (149 US dollars). This is discounted price for someone who joins a surname group. A test kit can be ordered from anywhere in the world. The test is a harmless genealogy test of locations on the Y chromosome, called markers, which are passed from father to son, typically unchanged.  The test result is a string of numbers, and contains no personal information.  You will be an exact or close match to those men to whom you are related.  By also testing a distant direct line male in your family tree, if possible, you will validate the family tree research to the common ancestor shared by both men who test.  In addition, the test result will tell you about your distant origins. You can read more at Family Tree DNA.

 

The objective of the study is to try to establish if various Kelsall family trees are related. We may determine that most Kelsall lines trace to a common origin in Cheshire or we may establish there are multiple distinct lines. Testing may establish a connection between trees that is now only suspected. I am attaching a chart that shows some of the main trees that I have been looking at. This is a work in progress and I welcome any revisions or additions regardless of whether you join the DNA group.

Origins of the Kelsall Name

The Kelsall name most obviously derives from the village of the same name in Cheshire. According to the Dictionary of Surnames (Hanks & Hodges) the name derives from “Kell’s nook or recess”.

 

As related in Barthomley.: In Letters From A Rector To His Eldest Son published in 1856 by The Rev. Hinchcliffe and Notes on the Family of Kelsall  published by John Kelsall in 1916, the village is mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) and the name Adam de Kelsall appears as early as 1277. William Kelsall was Sheriff of Chester in 1335 and Stephen de Kelsall was Mayor of Chester in 1350. (Much later, John Kelsall was Mayor of Chester in 1768 and his name appears on the Eastgate Arch below the famous clock, said to be the most photographed clock in the world after Big Ben. This John Kelsall is said to belong to the Kelsalls of Dodleston or Kinnerton.)

 

According to Lyson’s Magna Britannia (1810), the ancient branch of the Kelsall family from Tarvin (presumably the village of Kelsall) became extinct at an early period but a younger branch can be traced to Heathside and Bradshaw Hall in Cheadle.

 

Bardsley records the name Reginald de Keleshalle from 1273 in Cambridge and Johannes Kelesall from 1379 in Yorkshire. Reaney records Kelsale  from 13th C Suffolk and Kelshall from 13th C Hertfordshire, both said to be “surviving as Kelsall”.

 

Distribution of Kelsall Families

Present-day Population

The numbers for the UK are estimated as follows: Population of Kelsalls = number on BT disc x total population/entries on disc

 (=763 x 58,000,000/14,000,000).

Interestingly, almost the same answer is obtained  by taking the proportion of Kelsalls in the total population in the 1881 census times the present population.

The numbers for the USA, Australia, Canada and New Zealand are obtained from the number of phonebook entries  x 1.35 (allowance for unlisted numbers) x 2.5 people per household.   The numbers for South Africa and “others” are guesses

Over half of all Kelsall households in the U.K. are in three counties, Staffordshire, Lancashire and Cheshire. In the USA, Kelsall is such a rare name that it is not found in the list of the 88,799 most common names found by the official Census.

If you have any information to add to these numbers please e-mail me at kelsall@q.com.

 

1881 British Census

The total population of Kelsall individuals in the 1881 British census was 1585. This includes 1515 Kelsall, 36 Kellsall, 19 Kelsal, 13 Kelsell and 2 Kelsale. Six individuals were in Scotland, the remainder in England & Wales. The most populous counties were as follows:

The total population of England & Wales recorded in the 1881 census was 25,974,436. There was, therefore, approximately one Kelsall for every 16,000 inhabitants.

The distribution of the Kelsall name is consistent with migration from its source in Cheshire to the neighbouring industrial counties of Staffordshire and Lancashire.  In 1881 83% of all Kelsall families in the UK lived in these three counties. I think it is possible that most Kelsalls in Staffordshire are descended from James Kelsall of Audley.

My Genealogy

My KELSALL family is from Buckley in Flintshire, North Wales. Eight generations of Kelsalls have lived in Buckley from the mid 1700s to the present. Most of the Kelsall men have been coal miners, although the last mine closed in Buckley in the 1930s. My father, Charlie, played professional football for Wrexham.

 

I grew up in Buckley and attended Lane End Infants, Buckley County Primary (the “Board School”), Mold Alun Grammar, and Imperial College, London. I am currently living in Highlands Ranch, a suburb of Denver, Colorado.

 

Our Kelsall family can be traced with reasonable certainty to James Kelsall and Johanna Short who were married in Audley, Staffordshire in 1563. James moved to Audley from Cheadle in Cheshire sometime before 1539 and died in Audley in 1583. James’ son, William was Vicar of Audley at the time of the English Civil War. From James to my children, we can trace 14 generations of the Kelsall name. An article, The Kelsall Family of Audley, has been published in the Audley Historian, Number 5.

 

The Kelsall history in Buckley, Flintshire is traced back to the late 1700s through family records, the Hawarden parish registers, and the 1841 to 1881 censuses. It appears that the family originated in Buckley with Richard Kelsall and Mary BERKS who moved with their children from Staffordshire to Buckley most probably between 1750 and 1755. Richard  Kelsall was involved with coal in Audley and it is likely that the family moved when new coal mines were opening in the Buckley area.

 

I am also interested in these other names:

IREDALE: My grandfather, John Iredale was born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire in 1881. I have traced his family to William Iredale, born about 1775.

 

SHONE: My grandmother, Lily Shone was born in Buckley, Flintshire in 1879. I have traced her family to John Shone, born about 1740.

 

BLOOR: My great-great-grandmother, Esther Bloor was born in 1821 in Hanley, Staffordshire.  Her parents were Enoch Bloor and Elizabeth Pool. She married Samuel Shone on December 15, 1839 in Hanley. Additional information on the Bloor name can be found at the Bloor Society web site.

 

EVANS: My grandmother, Margaret Evans was born in Buckley in 1886.

 

BECKETT: My great-grandmother, Hannah Beckett was born in 1857 in Great Mollington, Cheshire.

 

FENNAH: My great-great grandmother, Mary Fennah was born in Buckley in 1827.

 

Also in Buckley: MADDOCK, THORNTON, PETERS, ELLIS, ASTON, LAMB.

 

Also in Huddersfield: ANELEY, BURLEY

 

Also in Longton/Fenton: SHUFFELBOTHAM, POOL

.

Also from my wife’s family: WITTBECKER,  SCOVILL and MOHR (Freeport, Illinois), ROITZ and BUTLER (Pueblo, Colorado). The SCOVILL line traces to the 1600s in Dorset.

Acknowledgements

The connection to Audley was originally obtained from the family history of Richard Kelsall found in the LDS Ancestral File submitted by John McNamara of Queensland, Australia. John kindly sent me copies of materials he had obtained from Stella Meaton of Crewe, including George Kelsall’s petition and pedigree charts.

 

I am especially indebted to Pat Spode, Robert Speake and Stan Brassington of the  Audley & District Family History Society for obtaining and translating wills from Lichfield and for translating additional wills I had obtained from Chester. I have also obtained assistance from many others including: Helen Kelsall Wilson, Margaret Pember, Ian Bailey, Robert Mayer, Ian Bloor, Joan Dobson, and David Kelsall. Last, but certainly not least, I am of course indebted to my parents, Charles and Joan Kelsall of Buckley.

Full references are provided in the original article.

 

The Kelsall family tree in Audley prior to about 1720 is largely derived from the “ Kelsall Pedigrees”, a manuscript held by the Staffordshire Record Office. Information on later generations is obtained from a set of pedigrees used by George Kelsall in 1833 in connection with his claim for the estate of his grandfather, Richard Kelsall and from the history of Audley published by Richard Parrott in 1733.

 

The original Kelsall Pedigrees includes hundreds of family trees and this introduction.  “An alphabetical genealogy of all the persons which are in any whitt a near neighbour unto me as far I know or can get information of.”. The original manuscript is delicate and not available for open inspection, but the Staffordshire Record Office is in the process of preparing a complete transcript. The Audley Family History Society holds hand-drawn copies of some of the pedigrees relating to Audley Parish, but their holdings do not include any Kelsall families. The author commissioned a transcript of the sections relating to the Kelsall name in 1999. According to Parrott , William Kelsall of Hall o’ Wood compiled the Kelsall Pedigrees between 1680 and 1690. In the Kelsall sections the latest dates written in the original hand are from 1711 while dates starting in 1714 appear in a different hand. William Kelsall died in 1720.

 

 

James Kelsall of Audley, Staffordshire (died 1583)

The Kelsall family in Audley was established by James Kelsall who “came forth of Cheshire”. According to LysonsMagna Britannia James was related to the Kelsall family of Bradshaw Hall in Cheadle.

 

The earliest mention of James Kelsall is his place on the Muster Roll of 1539. The Muster Roll was a list of 95 men who could be called to arms to help suppress a rising in the reign of Henry VIII. James is listed as possessing “a bill and a peir of splentes” (i.e. a 5 or 6-foot staff topped with a hook and spear head, and splints for tying broken bones).

 

According to the Kelsall PedigreesJames came to Audley and married Agnes and had by her Ellen who married John Smith of Park Lane…Then he buried Agnes his wife November 20 and married Joan Short he being 87 years old February 27 both 1563…”  Continuing from the pedigrees, “James was buried at Audley, August 29, 1583 being 107 years old”. To the present author this longevity is not credible. At 107, James would surely have been one of the oldest people alive anywhere on earth; moreover he would been 93 when his son John was born in 1569!

 

The Audley registers show two sons born to James, William (1565) identified as Vicar of Audley and John (1569). John’s will made in 1630 identifies him as a “nealer” (nail maker) and makes bequests to children, James, John, Anne and Joanne. John’s descendants may be traced through the wills of James and John and via the pedigrees and Audley registers.

William Kelsall (1565-1649), Vicar of Audley

Inscriptions at Audley Church show that William Kelsall was Vicar of Audley from 1592 (when he succeeded his father-in-law, Andrew Beech) to 1619, and in 1646 when he was ejected by the Parliamentary Committee together with his son, John, who was also his curate. The following entry appears in the Audley registers at the bottom of the page for baptisms in 1646:

 

“Here William Kelsall and his curare John Kelsall were sequestrated and ejected for adhering to the King Charles I and King Charles II returning to his throne John Kelsall returned to his vicarage August 9th, 1660”

 

William’s baptism (January 11, 1565), and marriage to Ann (September 21, 1592), daughter of Andrew Beech (clericus, Audley) are recorded in the Audley registers. The following note also appears in the Audley registers: “April 3, 1646 - ends the handwriting of William Kelsall...He died in exile and was buried at Audley 1653”. William’s will was prepared on June 8, 1649 and the inventory refers to “William Kelsall, vicar of Audley, late deceased, taken August 16, 1649”.

 

William Kelsall’s will identifies three sons, William, John and Richard, and a daughter Margery who married Gabriell Smith. The inventory amounts to almost £21, the largest items being £5 for two young cows, £4 for his clothes, £2 for bedsteads, £2 for vessels of brass and £1 for one large swine. William’s son, John, succeeded his father as Vicar of Audley after the Civil War. John’s 1668 will refers to his two deceased wives (Margaret Brook and Elizabeth Haworth), and children John and Mary (who married Thomas Vernon). His inventory, not including property, amounted to £424, equivalent to over £30,000 in today’s terms; this included £160 in books, worth over £11,000 today.

 

Richard Kelsall of Balterley (1606-1683) and Dorothy Booth

William’s younger surviving son, Richard, was born in 1606 and married Dorothy Beech on June 10, 1628. Richard was a shoemaker. Most of what is known of Richard and his son Richard concerns the Hall o’ Wood estate.  This estate included a splendid Elizabethan manor house which has been restored and still stands near Balterley about 2 miles west of Audley near the A52 Audley to Nantwich road. According to a brochure prepared recently for sale of the property, the house was built in 1557 for Judge George Wood of Chester. From Speake’s history of Betley, we see from the Hearth Tax of 1666 that Hall o’ Wood was occupied by Mrs. Wood and was charged for six hearths. Richard Kelsall occupied another house at Balterley also with six hearths. It appears that Richard Kelsall became the first Kelsall to own Hall o’ Wood sometime between 1666 and 1681 when he prepared his will. After Richard Kelsall (1606-1683), Hall o’Wood passed down off the author’s direct line, first to William (1641-1720) the compiler of the Kelsall Pedigrees. The interesting history of Hall o’ Wood culminated in a lawsuit in the 1830’s.

 

Richard and Dorothy Kelsall’s deaths are recorded on reasonably well preserved gravestones set in the path in Audley churchyard. The inscriptions read:

 

“Here lyeth the body of Richard Kelsall of Hallmerend who dyed the 29th day of April 1683”

“Here lyeth the body of Dorothy Kelsall of Halmerend who dyed 24 Jan and buryed the 27th 1687”

 

Richard Kelsall’s will was prepared in 1681 two years before his death. The will leaves “the Hall of Wood and all lands, tenements…. appertaining with ..” to his son William, and makes bequests to his wife Dorothy, son Richard,  and grandchildren Smith, Mary, Ann and Sarah Childe, and Elizabeth Poole. The value of the inventory, not including any property, was £158.15s.

 

Dorothy Kelsall’s will was prepared November 17, 1686 a little over two months before her death. Her bequests were to her older son, William, younger son, Richard and grandchildren Sarah Kelsall, Ann Kelsall, Elizabeth Pool, Mary___, Smith Child, William Kelsall and Richard Kelsall. (John Kelsall on the author’s direct line was not born until 1688.) Dorothy’s will includes the following: “My will and mind is that the chest in the higher parlour shall be an heireloom to them that shall enjoy Halmerend House, and if any goods in the house are unbequeathed my will and mind is my son Richard shall have them.”  The house itself is not included in the will, presumably because it would have passed automatically to son Richard. Dorothy’s estate was inventoried at £206.10s, of which £165 was in bills bonds and obligations. Each grandchild was given between £10 and £30.

 

Parrott contains the following passage describing Richard Kelsall’s interest in coal mining.

 

“The next house on the south Halmerend Lane that is free land, did formerly belonge to one Mr. Cooke of Drayton, and about 70 years since [i.e. c. 1663] one John Viggers (nicknamed Thumper Viggers) bought it of Mr. Cooke. Viggers came out of Shropshire, from Rockardine.) He was a

ground collier and became partner with one Richard Kelsall his neighbour in coalworkes under the Bretts in a piece of land called Scothay, where he got his money.”

Also, from the will of John Viggars of Halmerend (1594 - 1666/7), dated September 1, 1666:

 

And I give and bequeath unto John Viggars and Nicholas Viggars, my kinsmen, all tithe, chyme and interest in the coal mine or coal mines which Richard Kelsall, Edward Stubbs and I hold from the Mr. William Sneyd and Mr. Edward Brett the Younger

 

Thus, the Kelsall family was involved in coal mining from before 1666. The Richard named in the will is presumed to be Richard (1606 - 1683) since his son Richard would have been only 16 in 1666.   Richard Kelsall of Halmerend (1650-1717) and Catherine Sherratt (1648-1723). As related by Parrott, this Richard inherited Halmerend while his brother William inherited Hall o’ Wood. Richard married Catherine Sherratt and had 3 sons, Richard, William and John, at least one daughter, Anne (who married William Moore), and possibly another daughter Mary.

 

Richard’s epitaph appears on the same flagstone at Audley Church as that of his father:

 

“Richard son of the above written Richard Kelsall was also interred Feb 17th Ano Dom 1718 ano etat 68”

 

The will of “Richard Kelsall of Halmerend, Yeoman” was prepared on the 14th January 1718. His bequests were to his sons, Richard, William and John, his daughter Anne Moore, John’s sons Richard and William, and his wife Catherine. Richard’s inventory taken 18th February 1718 amounted to £100. 9s, including £85 in money and bonds. Possessions are listed for the following rooms: the parlour, buttery, chamber over the parlour, and the shoppe. (One of the witnesses to the will was Joseph Berks. Richard’s grandson, Richard would marry Mary Birks.)

 

Catherine’s epitaph is also on the flagstone at Audley Church:

 

“Catherine wife of the above lait Richard Kelsall was likewise interred April the 18th Ano Dom 1723 ano etat 74”

 

Catherine’s will was prepared in 1722. Her bequests were to her sons, John and William, and daughter Anne Moores. The only grandchild mentioned is William “the son of my deceased son, Richard”. Her inventory taken April 17th 1723 amounted to £32.12s. 9d, and included £17 in money.

John Kelsall of Halmerend (1688-1746)

 

John Kelsall was occupying Halmerend in 1733 at the time of Parrott’s survey. The Kelsall Pedigrees show John Kelsall married Hannah Machin while his brother Richard married Hannah Henbury.

 

The burials of both John and Hannah are recorded on inscriptions at Audley Church:

 

“Here lyeth the body of John Kelsall of Hallmerend who was interred April 29th 1746 aged 58”

 

“Hannah the wife of John Kelsall was here interred Dec 1 1764 a.63”

 

John’s will was prepared April 6th 1746. He makes bequests to his wife Hannah, sons John, William and Richard, and daughters Sarah Kelsall and Hannah Green. The will makes cash bequests totaling £135 but Richard receives only a long table, cupboard and “flying Gun”. By comparison, John and Sarah as joint executors received £40 and £60 respectively. As the eldest son Richard would have inherited the house automatically.

 

The Move to Flintshire; Richard Kelsall (1713-1780) and Mary Birks

Richard Kelsall was born in 1713 in Audley, Staffordshire and was buried at Hawarden Parish Church in Flintshire on February 14, 1780. Mary Birks was born in Newcastle under Lyme and died in 1791 in Pentrobin (Buckley), Hawarden Parish. Richard and Mary were married at Newcastle under Lyme January 19, 1734.

 

Richard and Mary had 11 children, Richard, William, Mary, John, Joseph, George, Nancy, Sarah, Hannah, Ann and Robert born between 1736 and 1762. The first 7 children up to and including Nancy in 1750 were apparently born in Audley, and the last three in Mold Parish, Flintshire, probably in Bistre in present-day Buckley. The Mold Parish registers list three Kelsall baptisms from the period, all with father and mother Richard and Mary: Hannah baptised May 19, 1755; Robert, July 1, 1758; and Sarah, April 25, 1762. This would mean that the family must have moved between 1750 and 1755. In 1758 Richard Kelsall was occupying land “by Sandycroft” at Burntwood in Buckley.

 

Most of the children are known to have died in Hawarden parish, but some connections with Staffordshire were retained.

 

Richard, the oldest child born in 1736, married Sarah Shore in Madeley, Staffordshire in 1755. According to one of George Kelsall’s pedigrees, Richard died in Neston in 1764. One of his children, Thomas married Mary Edwards in Stoke in 1778 and had several children in Stoke.

Joseph born in 1746 stayed in Staffordshire (or returned) and married Sarah Mountford at Wolstanton in 1772.  Joseph and Sarah have many descendants in Hanley.

 

Richard and Mary’s ninth child, Robert Kelsall was baptised at Bistre July 1,1758 and died in May 1820. He is described in the Hawarden registers as a machine man collier. Mary Jones was born in Hawarden parish in about 1765 and was still alive at the time of the 1851 census aged 86. The Hawarden registers include 7 children of Robert and Mary, and examination of later census records suggests two more. The history of the Kelsall family in Buckley will be the subject of another article.
