Brian Elks, his parents and ancestors

Great-grandfather was called William Edward Elks and he was born in 1856 in Staffordshire, England. Grandfather John Elks was born in Bloxwich, Staffordshire in 1885 and father, Albert Edward Elks, in 1910. The names and date of birth for all my father's brothers and sisters are known and some other family details such as marriages and the names of cousins, but very few dates.

In 1912 grandfather John Elks and his wife Lizzie (maiden name Peach) moved to Dover, Kent and most of their other children were born there. Only one of them is still alive, sadly the rest have gone.

The surname Elks

About half of the known people with the Elks surname live in Britain, about one third of them in the Midlands, notably Staffordshire and Derbyshire. Most of the earliest records are concentrated in Shropshire, although the first record of the name found so far is the baptism of an Elizabeth Elks in Gloucestershire in 1548. This contrasts with a family tradition that originally the family came from Germany, but there does not seem to be any evidence to support this and bearing in mind the early localised distribution it is possible that the name is of Saxon (Mercian) origin. Considering some spellings of the Elks family name, it is interesting to see that the derivation of the name of Ilkeston, a town in Derbyshire, is from Ealac's Hill and that, over the centuries, the name has been spelt Elcasdon, Elkesdon, Helchesdun, Hilkesdon, Hilkisdon

10. Thomas Peach, born at The Green, Darlaston, Staffs on 15 November 1862; emigrated to Australia circa 1912 and died at Rockvale, New South Wales in 1931 (both he and his wife are buried in Woronora Cemetery, near Sutherland, NSW). He was the son of  20. Thomas Peach and 21. Betsy Leech. At the time of his marriage he worked for the railways, in 1901 was a colliery bank foreman and circa 1908 became the landlord at the Canal Tavern, Bloxwich. He married 11.

NOTE: The birthplace of Mary Jane Wilkinson is given in the 1901 census but this has not been confirmed by the records. It is possible that the name of her father, given as John Wilkinson on her marriage certificate, is a fiction.

Generation No.5

16. John Elks, baptised 6 January 1822 at Meole Brace, Shropshire; died 2 July 1871 at Leamore, Bloxwich, Staffs. The name may also be spelt HELKS, HILKS or ELKES. He was an ironstone miner, later a coal miner. He was the son of   32. William Elks and 33. Sarah Ramsell. He married 17. Hannah Webster at Walsall Wood, Staffs on 10 July 1847. His age at death was given as 53, so he may have been born as early as 1818, but this is probably an error.

17. Hannah Webster, baptised in Fradley, Lichfield, Staffs on 12 February 1828; died 10 June 1905 at 8 Victoria Terrace, Leamore, Staffordshire. She was the daughter of  34. Thomas Webster and 35.

18. Levi Martin, baptised 30 March 1828 in Longdon, Rugeley, Staffs; died 11 February 1886. He was the son of  36. John Martin and 37. Martha Shelton. He married 19. Sarah Ann Keeling at St. Michael's Church, Rushall, Staffs on 28 November 1859.

20. Thomas Peach, born in Newhall, Derbyshire on 20 January 1838; died 3 January 1920 at 97 Station Street, Cheslyn Hay, Cannock. The name is also spelt PEECH. He was the son of  40. Samuel Peach and 41. Mary Debroux. He married 21. Betsy Leech at Wednesbury on 1 February 1858. After her death he remarried to a widow, Mary Ann Franks, in 1905. His occupation was coal miner (colliery banksman in later life).

21. Betsy Leech, born circa 1838 at Toll End, Tipton, Staffs; died 17 March 1902 at Bridgetown, Cannock, Staffs.

Note: According to her marriage certificate, her father's name was  John Leech, but examination of the Staffordshire Census for 1841 and 1851 reveals that the only Betsey Leech listed was the daughter of James and Hannah Leech, born in 1841. Nor can any record of her birth be located. It is possible that when she married in 1858 she was underage and hence the name of her father and her age of 21 were both false. Her husband, Thomas Peach was also underage, nearly a year younger than stated on the marriage certificate.

Generation No.6

 

32. William Elks, baptised 6 December 1789 at Pontesbury, Shropshire; died 1864. The name is also spelt HILKS or HELKS. He was the son of  64. Thomas Elks and 65. Margaret Meyrick. He married 33. Sarah Ramsell at St. Alkmund Church, Shrewsbury on 26 May 1817. Occupation given as labourer. Lived at Hokoe Gate (Hooker Gate) 1817-1831.

33. Sarah Ramsell, baptised in Meole Brace, Shropshire on 18 April 1794 (see following note); died 1873.

Note: There were five children with that name born between 1791 and 1797, three of whom died early. Although there is slight evidence to suggest that she was the daughter of Edward Ramsell and Martha Boothby born in 1797, her age according to the various census from 1851 to 1871 (see below) would give her date of birth some years earlier, 1791 or 1793, even though both the children born in those years subsequently died before 1795. However, they were all descended from William and Catherine Ramsell, who were either the grandparents or great-grandparents of Sarah.

Note: Sarah Helks aged 58 (1851 Census)
Sarah Elks aged 68 (1861 Census)
Sarah Elks aged 80 (1871 Census)

25. Mary (Maria) Debroux, born circa 1810 (1816?) in Wednesbury, Staffordshire (see note below). Although the name is spelt DEBROUX in the marriage register, she signs as DEBURAX. There are at least 14 different ways the name is spelt, including DEBOREX, DEBOROUCK.

NB. This appears to be the only occurrence of the surname in Derbyshire.
Note: Her date of birth fluctuates every time it is recorded, e.g. 1811 according to the 1841 Census (30);
1823 in the 1861 Census (38); 1825 in the 1871 Census (46).
