Michael BLACKWELL came into my Pub the other day and I offered to place his interest on the Forum, replies to me, please. He is searching for All BLACKWELLs, but specifically those in North Wales who came as Lead-Miners from Derbyshire in the 18c. where they had been experts for centuries. They came and they stayed, along with many others! Any help would be appreciated.

Subject: BLACKWELL, Kirk Ireton
From: Martin JACKSON 100710,3646 (That is mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org)
On behalf of Steve Blackwell, of Mold, Flintshire, N.Wales, I am posting the following letter : Replies to me, please.
BLACKWELLS from Derbyshire to N.Wales.
We are particularly interested in the Kirk Ireton connection. We believe Blackwells / Blackwalls, lead miners from Kirk Ireton may have settled in Yscefiog, North Wales in about 1670.
Henrici Blackwell was lead-mining in Yscefiog in 1675, but he is not recorded as being born or christened in that Parish, he had a brother, William and his wife was Anne. My family are direct decendents of Henrici Blackwell.
We found [source - Parish Register at Derbyshire C.R.O.] a Henry, son of Anthony, bapt. October 28 1641 in Kirk Ireton, but he was not buried in Derbyshire. He also had a brother, William. Unfortunatley we cannot find the marriage of Henry and Anne.
Could anyone provide us with any further information regarding the Blackwells in Kirk Ireton, as we are desperate to prove the link.
Regards... Steve Blackwell.
