    Not sure if this has been covered now as I forget most of what I read here. I will include my findings from today because I had such a good time doing it. I've been all over the map & I rely on the locals to understand my meanderings.
    Firstly a marriage:
    by Licence
    William Clegg of STOWE & Elizabeth Morley this parish..— 1804
    Staffordshire Marriages Colwich, St Michael & All Angels,Staffordshire,
    Stowe to Handsworth. 70.6 miles- M40
    Swinton to Colwich 77 miles
    Either of these folk may have moved from birth town.
    ....................
    Baptisms
    Clegg John 1802
    Staffordshire Baptisms Colwich, St Michael & All Angels, Staffordshire,
    PTS:William Clegg + Elizabeth
    .........
    Clegg John — 1807
    Colwich, Staffordshire
    PTS:William Clegg + Elizabeth
    .................
    William Clegg
    Baptism date 07 Sep 1804
    Place Colwich, Staffordshire
    Father Wm. Clegg-Mother Elizabeth
    ..............
    James Clegg
    Baptism date 09 Nov 1805
    Colwich, Staffordshire
    Father Wm. Clegg + Elizabh of Great Heywood.
    .................
    Colwich to Handsworth = 26-37 miles now via 3 routes.

    Joseph Cleig
    Baptism date 20 Jan 1811
    Church Sheffield Handsworth St Marys
    County Yorkshire
    Father William Cleig
    Mother Elizabeth
    .............
    John Cleig
    Baptism date 06 Jun 1813
    Place Handsworth, Yorkshire
    Father William Cleig + Elizabeth
    ................
    Name: George Clegg
    Baptism: 4 Jun 1815 - Handsworth,York,England
    PTS:William Clegg + Elizabeth
    .....................
    Name: Henry Clegg
    Baptism Date: 9 Feb 1817
    Baptism Place: Handsworth,York,England
    PTS:William Clegg + Elizabeth
    FHL Film Number: 990889
    ..............
    Name: Mary Clegg
    Baptism: 11 Apr 1819 - Handsworth,York,England
    PTS:William Clegg + Elizabeth
    .......
    Name: Martha Clegg
    Baptism: 4 Nov 1821 - Handsworth,York,England
    PTS:William Clegg + Elizabeth
    .............
    No certainty that these are all the same family but wouldn't it be nice?
    The only other marriage I found was for:-

    William Clegg to Elizabeth Dardog
    Marriage 17 Mar 1799
    Almondbury - a bit further away.
    Dedication All Hallows.
    aged about 15, but it did happen.

    Forgot this bit:
    Swinton to Colwich 77 miles
    Swinton 11- 14 miles from Handsworth
    108 miles Handsworth to Ickleton,
    130-150+ miles Ickleton to Swinton.
    So where did they meet up?

    Many thanks, you have been on a long journey! It brought a big smile on my face. They probably met on the internet through on line dating?

    I have William and Elizabeth's 10 children:
    Sarah b 1804 d 1805; Ann b 1806 d 1867; William b 1807 d ?; John b 1810 d 1817; Joseph b 1811 d 1817; George b 1815 d 1875; Henry b 1817 d 1865; Mary b 1819 d ?; Martha b 1821 d ?; Charles b 1825 d ?;

    As you can see there are quite a few of the children you have discovered on my list also, so many thanks and kind regards I really appreciate your contribution.

    One wonders just what truth may be in these findings.
