Still moving around the area in 1871 the family were living at 69 Castle Gate in Newark.  Charlotte is listed on the census as being the head of the family, though not as a widow, so the whereabouts of his father, George, are unknown though it is likely that he has died.  Henry was following in his father’s footsteps and was now working as a blacksmith.

At the age of 22 Henry married 23 year-old Mary Ann Whitworth on the 29th of June 1872 in the Wesleyan Chapel in Barnby Gate, Newark.  By the time of the wedding Henry has moved out of the family home and is at 2 Lovers Lane in Newark and his occupation as a general smith.  Mary Ann was living at 42 Whitfield Street in Newark and working as a dressmaker.  Lovers Lane and Whitfield Street are about a mile apart, where Whitfield Street enters onto Barnby Gate.
 
The marriage was witnessed by John Whitworth and Elizabeth Peet.  Mary Ann was heavily pregnant at the time of the wedding as soon after on the 22nd of July of that year Mary Ann gave birth to their first child Marian.
 
The Stamford Mercury of the 5th of July 1872 had the following notice;
MARRIAGES
At the Wesleyan Chapel, Newark, on the 29th ult., Mr. Henry Peet, to Miss Marian Whitworth.
 
However it was five years later before the birth of their next child, Gertrude on the 13th of July 1877.  Gertrude’s full name was Gertrude Annie Winterbotham Peet, she is the first of the couples’ children to have Winterbotham included in their name.  I have been unable to find the connection between the Winterbotham’s and Peet’s but other branches of the Peet’s also have Winterbotham included in their name.  However some records, such as Lillian’s probate in 1975 have the name as Winterbottom.
 
On the 30th of November 1887 there was a report in the Stamford Mercury;
NEWARK BOROUGH POLICE Nov. 22, before the Mayor (Ald. Pratt), Ald Branston, Mr. Riddell and Mr. P. Handley – Joseph Brewster, apprenticed to Henry Peet, blacksmith, was charged with absconding on the 23rd inst.  He was ordered to pay 2l. 1s. 8d, compensation and costs, which was to be deducted from his wages.
 
Two years later on the 16th of July 1879 Florence Lousia Winterbotham Peet was born.
 
Wesleyan Chapel in Barnby Gate, Newark
By 1881 the couple and their family had moved to 5 North Gate in Newark and Henry was still working as a general smith.  Henry and Mary Ann employed a servant Mary J Jessop, born c1867 in Newark.  It can be assumed that Henry is a successful businessman as they family employ a servant.  Henry’s age on this census is given as 38, however this must be wrong as it doesn’t agree with the ages on both his marriage and death certificates.

Shortly after the census their fourth child and daughter Lillian Beatrice Winterbotham Peet was born on the 21st of October of that year. 
 
Henry for some reason, maybe business related placed the following notice in the London Evening Standard on the 20th of March 1883;
WILL J. BRUNEL, Esq., who resided at 13 Priory-road, Everton, Liverpool in October 1881, COMMUNICATE with Mr. Henry Peet, Bar Gate House, Newark, Notts.
 
She was soon followed by their fifth daughter Rose Eveline Winterbotham Peet who was born on the 26th of November 1883.
 
In 1885 Henry is listed in White’s Directory at Tower Wharf, Northgate in Newark as a black, shoeing and general smith.
 
Four years later their fifth and last child Bertha Mary Winterbotham Peet was born on the 28th of January 1887.
 
Between 1883 and 1889 the family moved to 5 Bar Gate which is just 240 feet from 5 North Gate.  This new home at that time was a much larger premises, in 1881 it was used as a Drapers and housed the draper and his wife and five children, aged between six and twelve.  Also living there were four females classed as servants, though they were a dressmaker, a milliner and two sales women, also three male draper's apprentices classed as servants and two female domestic servants.  All nine servants were aged between 15 and 29.  So it was a household of 16.  The size of the property also suggests that Henry was a success. 
 

No. 1 and 3 are a pair of houses from the late 17th century, now in use as offices.  The original roofing has been replaced with modern concrete tiles and pantiles.  The bay windows are late 19th century.  No. 5 is of the same period but in the local blue lias limestone rather than the much more common brick.  The doorway appears to be relatively modern, though reasonably in keeping with the period.  All are listed Grade II. - Alan Murray-Rust

At the time of his death on the 28th of July 1889, in Bargate House Henry was working as an iron founder.  Henry had died of typhoid that had lasted for 17 days.  His death certificate indicates that he was just 38 years old, which indicates a year of birth of around 1851.  This agrees with his marriage certificate which gives his age as 21 in 1872.  The death certificate also shows that the informant of his death was John Whitworth, Henry’s father-in-law who was present his death.
 
Stamford Mercury 2nd of August 1889

Mary Ann Whitworth
Mary Ann is the daughter of John Whitworth and Ann Jepson and she was born in the second quarter of 1849 in Bothamsall, Nottinghamshire.  She died on the 6th of April 1936 in Lincoln at the age of 87. 
 
Another name for Mary Ann was Marian.  Marian is the name on her marriage certificate, however at present her birth certificate is not available.
 
In this year, 1849;
  • 17th December, the customer, probably Edward Coke, collects the first bowler hat (devised by London hat makers Thomas and William Bowler) from hatters Lock & Co. of St James's;
  • Summer, Karl Marx moves from Paris to London, where he will spend the remainder of his life.
 
In 1851 Mary Ann is living in the village of Bothamsall in Nottinghamshire about 20 miles north of Newark-on-Trent, her grandmother Rachel Jepson is the head of the family.

White's Directory of Nottinghamshire 1853 describes Bothamsall as;
 
"Bothamsall or Bottomsall parish lies east of Clumber Park, betwixt and near the confluence of the rivers Wollen and Idel, and the village is pleasantly situated near the Retford and Ollerton road, 4½ miles north by east of the latter.  The parish contains 1,712 acres of land, including wood and plantations, containing a variety of soil, but mostly a sandy loam, and 319 inhabitants.  The Duke of Newcastle is the sole owner, lord of the manor and impropriator.

The church of St. Mary is a perpetual curacy, of the certified value of £52, of which the Rev. Henry Fynes Clinton is the incumbent.  The church was rebuilt in 1844 by His Grace, on the site of the old one.  It is a neat gothic structure, with nave, chancel, north aisle and pinnacled tower, with three bells.  There is also a handsome parsonage, a little east of the church.  The stone principally used was brought from Worksop Manor, a great part of which is taken down.  In 1852, the Duke of Newcastle converted a barn into a small National School, and he also pays the teacher's salary.  The manor, before the Conquest, was held by Earl Tosti, but afterwards by Ralph de St George and Richard de Furnell, who gave the rectory to the Abbey of Welbeck, but in the 20th year of Queen Elizabeth, the tithes and manor were granted to the Earl of Lincoln.  Haughton Park, enclosed about 50 years ago, is in this parish.  Here are situated the Duke's Kennels, with a neat house, occupied by the head gamekeeper."
 
In 1861 at the time of the census Mary Ann was with her Aunt, Ann Jephson in Newcastle Street, Tuxford, Nottinghamshire.  The listing is unclear as it has;

There is no ‘Head’ of the household for Ann Jephson to be the wife of.
 
The only Ann Jepson that is in the family tree is Mary Ann’s mother who would have been 42 at the time of the census.  This could not be her mother as she was with her father and the rest of the family in Bothamsall in 1861.
 
 
By 1871 Mary Ann’s family had moved to 42 Whitfield Street, Newark-on-Trent.

Notice that Mary Ann has been written as Marian, also the three month old child has had visitor crossed out and under occupation I cannot make out the word before child.  Maybe he has a connection to the Harrison’s who were servants in 1861.
 
At the time of her wedding on the 29th of June 1872, Mary Ann is 22 years old, which means she was probably born after 29th June 1849.  Although on the 1871 census Mary Ann does not have an occupation she does by the wedding.  She was working as a dress maker and was therefore following in her fathers and grandfathers footsteps as both were tailors.  The marriage was witnessed by John Whitworth and Elizabeth Peet.  She is recorded as Marian on the marriage certificate, this could because the recorder wrote her name as it sounded.  The signature is also copied as Marian.
 
However, by the 1881 census she is listed as a smith’s wife.  By this time she had had three children and she was pregnant with a fourth.  This could be the reason that she is no longer a dress maker.

Henry died in 1889 and on the 5th of December 1890 the London Gazette had the following notice;
Pursuant to an order of the High Court of Justice, Chancery Division, made in the action of Henry Peet’s estate, Whitworth v Peet and another, 1890, P., No. 2158, the creditors of Henry Peet, late of Newark-upon-Trent, in the county of Nottingham, General Smith, who died on the 28th day of July, 1889, are, on or before the 7th day of January, 1891, to send by post, prepaid, to William Henry Norledge, Esq., of Newark-upon-Trent, the solicitor for the defendants Mary Ann Peet, Widow, and George Peet, the executors of the deceased, their Christian and surnames, addresses and descriptions, the full particulars of their claims, a statement of their accounts, and the nature of the securities (if any) held by them, or in default thereof they will be peremptorily be excluded from the benefit of the said Order.  Every creditor holding any security is to produce the same before Mr. Justice North, at his chambers, the Royal Courts of Justice, London on the 21st day of January, 1891, at twelve o’clock noon, being the time appointed for adjudication on the claims – Dated this 2nd day of December, 1890.
FREDK. GEO. CORDWELL, 3, Old Serjeants-inn, Chancery-lane, London, Solicitor for the Plaintiff.
 
This action shows that there was some dispute between what appears to be Mary Ann’s family, the Whitworth’s and herself.
 
By the 1891 census Mary Ann was now living at 5 Bargate in Newark and working as a coal dealer with her six daughters.  This census gives her age as 45 although the 1881 census stated 32 years old.  Mary Ann's parents, John and Ann, were also at 5 Bargate, Newark-on-Trent on the night of the census, also there was one servant Edith Taylor aged 16.  It is probable that the court case of Whitworth v Peet did not involve her parents as she is with them.

Henry was a successful businessman, not only working as a blacksmith but also as a property developer.  Unfortunately it appears that he had mortgaged himself to the limit and his untimely death meant that everything he had built up was lost and Mary Ann took the consequences.
 
By 1896 the dispute was settled by an auction of Henry's considerable portfolio of assets as described by the Nottinghamshire Guardian on the 6th of April 1895;

Referring to Lot XIV and Cherryholt Lane in 1881 Mary Ann’s parents were living in the lane, perhaps the name that cannot be read is theirs?
 
In Stamford Mercury on the 9th of October 1896 the following marriage notice appeared;
BASHFORTH – PEET – October 4th, at Barnby-gate, Weslyan Chapel, Newark (by the Rev. G. Neal Willis), William Henry eldest son of Mr. Seth Bashforth, of Skegness, to Marian eldest daughter of the late Henry Peet, of Bargate House, Newark.
 
Unfortunately it looks as though Mary Ann was not ultimately a successful coal dealer as the Lincoln, Rutland and Stamford Mercury reported on Friday the 8th of April 1898.
NEWARK – At Nottingham Bankruptcy Court, on Friday, Mary Ann Peet came up for examination.  The debtor, who was evidently in a weak state of health, formerly resided and carried on business as a coal merchant at Bargate, trading as Mary Ann Peet and Co., and stated her liabilities at 454l. 4s. 11d. and her assets at 136l. 8s. 10d.  Her late husband was an ironfounder, who also had a coal merchant’s business, which she continued when he died in July, 1889.  Her husband left his freehold property to her for life, but there were mortgages on it, and when it was sold by the Court of Chancery it turned out that there was not sufficient money in the estate to pay his debts in full, the creditors, as a matter of fact, only receiving 5s in the pound.  She had expected that there would be something left over for her, but she received nothing, and she still owed the money wherewith she purchased the plant and stock of the coal business from the creditors.  She had no capital whatever, but she carried on the business until the filing of her petition.  She first became aware of her insolvency last year, but she had been in difficulties ever since the coal strike.  No creditors appeared, and the examination was closed.
 
The London Gazette has notices of dividends and she is amongst them.
 
On the 9th of September 1898
Peet, Mary Ann (trading as Mary Ann Peet and Coy.) – Now residing at 2 Bargate, Newark and trading at Newark, Nottinghamshire – Coal Merchant, Widow – Nottingham Court – Last day for receiving proofs Sept. 24 1898 – Henry Roby Thorpe, Official Receiver – 4, Castle-place, Park-street, Nottingham.
 
On the 16th of June 1899
Peet, Mary Ann (trading as Mary Ann Peet and Coy.) – Now residing at 2 Bargate, Newark and trading at Newark, Nottinghamshire – Coal Merchant, Widow – Nottingham Court – Last day for receiving proofs July 3 1899 – Henry Roby Thorpe, Official Receiver – 4, Castle-place, Park-street, Nottingham.
 
On the 1st of August 1899
Peet, Mary Ann (trading as Mary Ann Peet and Coy.) – Now residing at 2 Bargate, Newark and trading at Newark, Nottinghamshire – Coal Merchant, Widow – Nottingham Court – Amount per pound, 3¼d – Second and Final – Payable Aug. 9 1899 – Where Payable Official Receiver’s Offices 4, Castle-place, Park-street, Nottingham.
 
So it looks as though the company fell through and that she could only pay 3¼d in every pound she owed, (£1 = 240d).  Despite Henry leaving quite a considerable sum of £1802 11s. 9d. in his will the Court of Chancery decision meant that Mary Ann received nothing.
 
 
By 1901 Mary Ann with her change in fortune was now working as a caretaker at Winthorpe Hall, which is a couple of miles outside Newark.
 
On the 4th of June 1906 Mary Ann’s daughter Florence married John Andrews and Florence’s address is given as Winthorpe Hall, near Newark.  It is likely then that Mary Ann was still employed there.
 
In 1907 her daughter Rose married Frank Sherwin in Sheffield, Yorkshire.
 
On the 20th of February 1908 Mary Ann’s daughter Gertrude married George Henry Myers in Yorkshire.  The marriage was also registered in Sheffield.
 
By the time of the 1911 census she was living with her daughter, Gertrude at 79 St Phillips Road, Romsey Town, Cambridge.  Gertrude's husband was visiting her sister Marian and her family in Sheffield.

All of the daughters who had Winterbotham in their name appear to have had Winterbottom at the time of their deaths;
 
i.     Marian Peet – (22/7/1872 – 3/7/1936)
At the age of 19 in 1891, Marian was working as a pupil teacher.  Five years later she married William Henry Bashforth (1870 – 1957) from Sheffield on the 4th of October 1896 in Newark. 
 
In 1901 William was an Iron Turner and they were living in Sheffield.  By 1911 they had been married for 14 years but had not had any children.  William and Marian were the caretakers of a Sheffield City Council School.
 
ii.   Gertrude Annie Winterbotham Peet – (13/7/1877 – 26/1/1958)
In 1901 Gertrude was a bookshop assistant living in Winthorpe near Newark and seven years later on the 20th of February 1908, 30 year-old Gertrude married 32 year-old George Henry Myers (26/6/1875 – Jan 1958).
 
By 1911 she was living in Cambridge with her two month-old son, Samuel Leslie Myers (14/1/1911 – 22/9/1993) and her 62 year-old widowed mother Mary Ann Whitworth.  On the night of the census her husband was visiting her sister Marian and her husband William Henry Bashforth in Sheffield.  George was working as railway clerk.
 
The couple had at least two children Samuel as mentioned before and Eric William Myers (22/3/1913 – 7/9/1993).
 
By 1939 the couple had moved to 40 Rookery Lane in Lincoln where Gertrude was a housewife and George a retired railway clerk.
 
On the 12th of January 1958 George died and probate was given the following month;

Just two weeks after the death of her husband Gertrude died and was cremated five days later on the 31st of January 1958 at the age of 80.  Probate states;

iv.  Lillian Beatrice Winterbotham Peet – (21/10/1881 – 11/4/1975)
Lillian never married.
 
It hasn’t been possible to find Lillian on the 1901 census but she was a witness to her sister Florence Louisa Winterbotham Peet's marriage on the 4th of June 1906 to John Andrews.
 
In 1911 she is at the home of her sister Marian and her husband William Henry Bashforth in Sheffield.
 
In 1929 she is living in Surrey with Harold Macpherson and his wife Constance according to the electoral register.  This is confirmed on the 1939 register as she is the domestic help to Harold, who is now a 72 year-old professional musician and Constance who is 71.
 
She died on the 11th of April 1975 in Lincoln at the age of 93 and was cremated three days later on the 14th in Lincolnshire.  Probate occurred the following month;

Ermine House is a care home.
 
v.  Rose Eveline Winterbottom Peet – (26/11/1883 – 1972)
Once again it has not been possible to find Rose on the 1901 census.
 
In 1907 she married Frank Sherwin (19/6/1882 – 10/2/1947) a motor mechanic from Sheffield and by 1911 she was living in Sheffield.  The couple had at least one daughter who was born the following year, Doris Evelyn Sherwin (9/4/1908 – 1980).
 
In 1939 the three of them are still together in Sheffield.  Frank is still a motor mechanic and Rose is a housewife.  Doris is a tobacco shop keeper.
 
On the 10th of February 1947 Frank died at the City General Hospital in Sheffield at the age of 64.  Probate was granted on the 19th of April;
Sherwin Frank of 34 Bodmin-street Sheffield died 10 February 1947 at The City General Hospital Sheffield Administration London 19 April to Rose Evelyn Winterbottom Sherwin widow.  Effects £630 2s. 4d.
 
vi.  Bertha Mary Winterbottom Peet – (28/1/1887 – 24/2/1966)
Bertha never married.
 
On the 1901 census she was a domestic housemaid at Hawthorne, North Road in Balderton near Newark.  But by 1910 she was a hospital nurse at the Chesterfield and North Derbyshire Hospital and Dispensary in Chesterfield and on the 1911 census she is living and working there.
 
She qualified in 1913 from the hospital.  The first registration that can be traced of her being a State Registered Nurse (SRN) is on the 16th of March 1923 in London.
 
In 1928 and 1931 she is an SRN living at Lyndair, Rookery Lane in Boultham in Lincolnshire.  This address becomes 40 Rookery Lane on the Nursing Regsiters of 1931, 1934 and 1937.  By the time war breaks out the 1939 register says she is living at Avon Cottage in Ryan Hill, Straford upon Avon in Warwickshire and still working as an SRN.  The Nursing Registers of 1943 and 1946 also have the same address.
 
Bertha died in Stratford upon Avon at the age of 79 on the 24th of February 1966.
