Hi Julie,

Just stumbled across this site, not really a member as such, but my maternal grandmothers' family are Archers and live in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

Not sure if there is a connection but my full tree is on Ancestry so drop me a line and we'll see if we can make a connection.

Thank you for the information Julie.

My Archer lot originally came from Lincolshire and moved to Worksop so as you see I'm not entirely certain there is a connection but I'll see what I can dig up for you.

The first Thomas in my tree was born in Lincolnshire in 1744 - they did go in for big families in those days so it is possible a branch ended up in Nottingham. There were quite a few Thomas's in the Archer family !

I'm afraid I can't help at all with the Eagle side of your family, sorry.

My email address is;

Hopefully I'll be in touch again soon.

Best regards

Hi Julie,

I've tried to find some information for you but I am struggling ! I think the only way forward is to find out who Thomas Archer's parents were. The best way to do that is by his marriage certificate, then birth certificate. As there were a lot of births with that name I would start with the marriage. It should give his age (possibly his birth), and you can work back from that.

I have found his marriage to Gladys Brierley in the 4th quarter of 1921 and I suggest you obtain a copy of the certificate. On that will be the Fathers' names' of both Thomas and Gladys.

Once you have the parents' names' it SHOULD be easier to get back and find the connection (if there is one).

The details for the certificate are :

Type of Cert - Marriage
Name - Thomas Archer
Spouse name - Gladys Brierley
Date of Registration - Oct/Nov/Dec 1921
District of Reg - Nottingham
Volume - 7b
Page - 702

I think certificates are about £9.00, but it will give you quite a bit of information to help you get further back in time. I do feel if there is a connection that it will be in the early 1800s'.

If I do find out any more I will certainly be in touch. Good luck, let me know how you get on.

Best wishes
