From Friday, February 11, 2000, Subject: Isaac Beardsley
I would like any information regarding Isaac Beardsley who married Rebecca Jackson in Duffield Derbyshire in 1820. Their two sons John Isaac and Samuel came to Australia. John returned to Debyshire with his Australian wife, had two children and then they all returned and had a further 8 children here. I believe he or the family owned a hotel in Derbyshire.
Thanks Jenny, Australia.

John Isaac Beardsley went to Australia and married Ann Forrest(er) thern they both went back to Derbyshire for a time. Two of their children were born in Belper (not Bilper as the site states - there is no such place!) John was a publican there for a while. They then moved back to Australia - quite something in those days! One of their children James Joseph was my grandfather - he was apparently Australia+NZ champion Axeman but I don't know when. He emigrated to NZ and met my grandmother (a nurse) following an accident during a competition.
