SHIFNAL - SHIFFNAL - IDSALL
a market town in Shropshire

the town name appears in a 1705 document
"His wife and three children from WROCKWARDINE to SHIFNAL alias IDSALL" - suggesting both terms were in use at that time.

It was IDSALL till the great fire of 1591 so Shiffnal or Shiffnall was virtually a new town after that date.

It was spelt all ways in 19th century, but probably stuck with Shifnal after the station was built about 1840. Probably chose one "ell" to save on the lettering on the station sign and in the train timetables. Cullwick

    NOTES

     

    WILLIAM CHERRINGTON PACE and family members in IOWA & KANSAS

    The family lived in four different towns in IOWA

    - DeWITT, CLINTON, BELLEVIEW, and DUBUQUE.
    Grandfather WILLIAM CHERRINGTON PACE owned and operated stores in each city.

    They came to KANSAS in 1871

    overland, in horse-drawn covered wagons, several milk cows trailing. They settled in old FAIRVIEW, Kansas, on a farm of which the new town of FAIRVIEW is now a part. In a few years they moved to a farm about two miles west of the village of ALBANY, Kansas. In 1882 they bought and moved to the ALBANY farm - the house is still standing - just a block or so south of the Albany school. In 1888 THOMAS JOSEPH and his wife ELIZABETH were married. They lived in part of the Albany house, where their daughters were born

    .....from notes of Mary ACKERMAN - Kansas City 1974
    granddaughter of William Cherrington PACE
    to her grandchildren in 1974
    who have sent me this information

    In 1900 THOMAS JOSEPH PACE and wife ELIZABETH - bought their own farm, moving away from ALBANY.
    Since Thomas was the last of the children left at the house, the grandparents were left alone. After the families of John W. and Jane McGillvray tried to live with the grandparents and failed, the grandparents moved to live with Thomas J. and wife on their farm, known as the Echo Lake Farm. In 1906 both families moved into Sabetha, Kansas, still living together. Grandmother (1835-1909) passed away in 1909. Grandfather continued to live on with Thomas J. and wife until he passed away in 1918.

    • GRANDFATHER and GRANDMOTHER PACE,
    • Aunt MARY E.
    • Aunt MAGGIE (Margaret Ann)
    • Uncle WILL, his wife MARY JANE
      always called Aunt MATE
    • and their daughter NORA
    are all buried in MONTROSE Cemetery in ALBANY, Kansas.

    Deed to the Pace lot is with the old papers.
    If anyone should ever visit the cemetery, the CEDAR TREES on the PACE LOT were planted there by Grandmother PACE herself after her daughter MARY passed away, perhaps a hundred and fifteen years ago

    The following appears in the IGI for Shropshire:

    • WILLIAM CHERRINGTON PACE baptised at MADELEY, Shropshire, on 5 September 1822 to GEORGE PACE - MARIA CHERRINGTON

    Other entries that may be of help: -

    • GEORGE PACE baptised at SHERIFF HALES, Shropshire on 12 August 1787 to JOSEPH PACE - Elizabeth MARIA CHERRINGTON baptised at SHIFNAL on 29 July 1780 to William Cherrington / Ann

    And the following marriage: -
    GEORGE PACE to MARIA CHERRINGTON at KEMBERTON on 16 May 1810.

    Other baptisms of children of GEORGE and MARIA: -

    • ...Anne Pace baptised 13 Jan 1816 Madeley;
    • ...Eliz. Pace baptised 9 March 1815 Madeley;
    • ...Joseph Pace baptised 21 July 1813 Madeley;
    • ...Margaret Maria Pace baptised 19 July 1824 Madeley;
    • ...Mary Pace baptised 2 Sept 1818 Madeley;

    I strongly recommend you order film for these parishes, which are all within a few miles of each other, through your LDS Family History Centre to check and hopefully add to this information.

    Good luck, Mike

    Most interested to hear of the PACE REUNION of CHATTANOOGA (June 1998) and the location of the grave of WILLIAM CHERRINGTON PACE in KANSAS.

    His father GEORGE'S brother JOSEPH, was my direct ancestor and they were born in SHERIFF HALES, just north of TONG, Shropshire, England. We might be kin.
