Richard Peet
Richard is the son of Richard Peet and Elizabeth and was born in 1788 in Nottingham.  He was baptised on the 19th of April 1788 in St. Peter's in Nottingham.  Richard died on the 17th of January 1865 in the Union Workhouse in Nottingham at the age of 77, though the death certificate says 68.  It could be that the informant of his death, Thomas Swanwick was mistaken about how old Richard was.  He was buried five days later on the 22nd in Nottingham General Cemetery.  From his death certificate the cause of death was bronchitis. 
In this year, 1788;
  • 26th January, Arthur Phillip, the commander of six transports carrying 736 convicts found the natural harbour of Botany Bay in Australia.
  • 31st January, in Rome, Charles Stuart aka Bonnie Prince Charlie died.
White's Directory of Nottingham 1853 describes the St. Peter's parish;
"St. Peter's parish, the smallest of the three parishes of Nottingham, is encompassed by St Mary's and St Nicholas' parishes, and averages about 450 yards in length and 200 in breadth.  It extends from Timber Hill, the Poultry and Bottle Lane, to the north bank of the Leen; and is bounded on the east by Sussex Street, Middle Hill, Middle Pavement, and the buildings behind Market Street and Fletchergate; and on the west by Greyfriargate, the Independent Chapel and friends' Meeting House, and the north end of Friar Lane.  Its principal streets are Bridlesmithgate, Timber Hill and the Poultry. Its public edifices are the Parish Church and the Assembly Rooms.
The Church St Peter's Church stands upon the declivity which falls westward from Bridlesmithgate to the foot of Wheelergate, Houndsgate, and the Low Pavement.  It is a Gothic structure with a tower at the west end, supporting a spire, and containing a peal of eight bells cast in 1771, and said to be the best attuned and the most melodious of any within many miles."
[White's Directory of Nottinghamshire 1853]
On the 23rd of September 1810 22 year-old Richard and 25 year-old Elizabeth were married in the Anglican church of St. Mary’s on High Pavement in Nottingham.  Their marriage is recorded in Pallot's marriage index for England, 1780-1837 given as Richd. Peat and Eliz. Plowright – St Mary's Nottingham 1810.  Just over a year after the wedding the couple were celebrating the baptism of their son James Baker Peet on the 29th of November 1811 after his birth earlier that month.  He was baptised in St. Mary's on High Pavement.

St. Peter's Church about 1850

St. Peter's Church about 1890
Three years later in 1814 with the family now residing in Cypress Street, Nottingham the couple had another son Robert Plowright Peet.  They baptised him on the 12th of April 1814 once again the couple used St. Mary’s.  Cypress Street though no longer exists.  However, his grave in America states that he was born on this day.
Another five years passed until the baptism of their next child, William on the 18th of July 1819 again at St. Mary's.  Three years later on the 17th of March 1822 their daughter Hannah Baddeley Peet was christened in St. Mary’s.  The record shows that their residence at the time was in Count Street, Nottingham.  Count Street also no longer exists but it was off Barker Gate which is opposite to where the Motorpoint Arena and National Ice Stadium entrance is.
However Hannah is likely to have died as an infant, since just over a year later Hannah Maria Peet was christened on the 28th of December 1823, also in St. Mary’s.  It is unlikely that Richard and Elizabeth would have named a second child Hannah if the first had survived.
On the 8th of March 1824 their son Charles Henry was born.  Charles emigrated to America and his obituary is given at the end of this document.  His grave in Leavenworth County in Kansas gives his date of birth and he is named as Charles Henry Peet, Sr,
On the 22nd of January 1826 Richard and Elizabeth baptised their son George once again at the Anglican church of St. Mary in Nottingham, again the record shows that their residence at the time was in Count Street.  There is believed to be another child, Mary Ann but all that is known about her is that she would have been born after the date of her parents wedding in 1810.
On the 4th of March 1831 the couple’s son, James Baker married Amelia Bates Fossitt in the Parish of St. Mary’s in Nottingham.  Four years later on the 2nd of March 1835 their son Robert Plowright married Thirza Bailey in Radford in Nottingham.
By 1841 the couple had moved to Newark on Trent in possibly Fine Street or Hine Street.  It is difficult to make the address out on the census.  At present there isn't a Hine Street but there is a Hine Avenue in Newark.  On the 1841 census both Richard and Elizabeth are listed as 50 years olds i.e. their year of births are 1791, however it isn't uncommon for the census to have ages out by a few years, as indeed are the ages of the children. 
Richard Peet 50 Head Frame work knitter
Elizabeth Peet 50 Wife  
William Peet 20    
Hannah Marie Peet 15    
Charles Henry Peet 13    
Shurgsy 27    
Robert 5    
George 3    
Eliza 6mts    
Elizabeth Staples 80    
Ellen Hardy 20    
The census shows that the couple and their family were also living with a female with a transcription interpreted as Shurgsy 27, Robert 5, George 3, Eliza 6 months and as these three children have been listed after Shurgsy they could be her children.  Also there are Elizabeth Staples 80 and Ellen Hardy aged 20.  Since the 1841 census does not contain too much detail except the names and occupations of members of a household it is not known what the connection is with Elizabeth Staples and Ellen Hardy.  However, in the last quarter of 1841 there is a marriage recorded between their son William and Ellen Hardy in Nottingham.
That marriage saw 22 year-old William marry 20 year-old Ellen Hardy in Radford in Nottingham, so it is likley that Ellen came from the Radford area of Nottingham. 
1845 saw the marriage of their daughter, 22 year-old Hannah Maria to 21 year-old Edward Pheasey and this is recorded as J/A/S 1845 Nottingham Vol 15 Page 809.
A year later in 1846 their youngest child, 20 year-old George married 16 year-old Charlotte Lacy in Newark.
St. Mary, Nottingham
Between 1841 and 1850 their son, Charles Henry emigrated to America and in 1850 married Elizabeth Jane Keene in New Brighton in Pennsylvania.
In 1848 there is a Richard Peet who is a frame work knitter living in Carlton according to Lascelles and Hagar's Directory of Nottingham.
In 1851 it Richard Peet is now widowed and living in Narrow Marsh in Nottingham.  He is working as a frame work knitter but his age is given as 66 and not 63.

Richard's son, James, who had been working as a Victualler, died on the 29th of June 1859 at 47 Derby Road in Nottingham at the age of 47.
By 1861 Richard, now aged 75 and classed as a weaver, is at the home of his daughter Hannah Maria and the Pheasey family in Bakewell, Derbyshire.  Edward his son-in-law, aged 35, is the Head of the family and works as a tailor and grocer.

By the time of his death about four years later on the 17th of January 1865 Richard must have fallen on hard times as he was in the Union Workhouse in Outgang Lane in Radford.  The informant of his death was Thomas Swanwick.  His age is given as 68 years, the discrepancy in the age could be because it should have been 78, or of course this may not be the same Richard Peet.
The Union workhouse had been built in 1837/38 on the south side of Outgang Lane, which is now Hartley Road.  It cost £2600 to construct and could accommodate 200 inmates.  The buildings design is based on a cruciform layout that was popular in the design of workhouses.  The Radford workhouse was closed in 1880.  The map below is from 1913.
On the 27th of January 1865 the Nottinghamshire Guardian had the following notice;
On the 17th inst., Mr. Richard Peet, late of Rancliffe-street, aged 79.
Noted events in his life were:
*  Living: 12th April 1814, Cypress Street, Nottingham.
*  Living: 17th March 1822, Count Street, Nottingham.
*  Living: 22nd January 1826, Count Street, Nottingham.
*  Living: 1841, Newark On Trent, Nottinghamshire.  Possibly Fine Street or Hine Street.
*  He worked as a frame work knitter in 1841.

Elizabeth Plowright
Elizabeth is the daughter of John Plowright and Ann Farrands and was born in 1785 in West Bridgford, Nottingham.  She was christened on the 15th of May 1785 in St. Giles Anglican church in West Bridgford and she is believed to have died on the 3rd of November in 1876 at the age of 91. 
St. Giles is a medieval church that needed renovation in 1872 and again between 1896 and 1911.  The church at the time of Elizabeth’s christening would be quite different to how it looks today as little of the medieval church remains.
There is some confusion as to the date of Elizabeth’s death.  Initially it was thought to be the 3rd of November 1876 when she was 91, but Richard was a widower by 1851.  There is a website francis genealogy that has her date of death as September 1847 in St. Marys, Nottingham at the age of 62.  If so this would be J/A/S 1847 Vol 15 Page 376.
There is also an Elizabeth Peet who died in Newark J/F/M 1848 Vol 15 Page 465.  Details of Elizabeth were originally found on Gencircles ruthmcarthur
On the 1841 census her age is given as 50 therefore her date of birth would be about 1791.
It has not been possible to trace her in the 1851 or 1861 census’ so probably one of the two deaths maybe hers, also in 1851 her husband Richard is classed as a widower.
On Pallot's Marriage index for England, 1780 – 1837, her husband is given as Richd Peat, and stamped St. Mary's Nottingham 1810.  According to the Nottinghamshire marriage records 1428 – 1929 Elizabeth was an Anglican
Noted events in her life were:
*  Living: 12th April 1814, Cypress Street, Nottingham.
*  Living: 17th March 1822, Count Street, Nottingham.
*  Living: 22nd January 1826, Count Street, Nottingham.
*  Living: 1841, Newark On Trent, Nottinghamshire.  Possibly Fine Street or Hine Street.
