Dakin family history

Post by Admin on Sat Nov 10, 2007 9:28 am

My Aunt and I are researching her Dakin ancestors who were prevailant in the Fairfield area of Buxton.The story goes that one of them who lived in a very large house was fond of a flutter. He subsequently gambled the house and lost it. He then moved his family to the Wigan area. My aunt can't quite remember the name of the house or it's whereabouts. We aren't even sure of the first name of the man who lost it but it would have been around the late 19th century as her mum was born in Wigan at the turn of the 20th century. (it was, we believe her grandfather who gambled tohe house away)Also any information on the Dakin family in general and if anyone knows details of the issue of the coat of arms we'd be extatic!

I have recently come to live in the area and would love to know more about my family roots. My Father came from Bollington and was called John Dakin. However other family members I know did come from the Peaks.

Hi Linda, I to am tracing my family history, I also have relations from the Bollington Macclesfield area. Have you tried : http://www.ancestry.co.uk
or Ancestry Aid Message Board. I have gone back as far as 1881, with a little help from the Ancestry Aid Message Board Members who will do look ups for you. Good Luck in your research.

My dad's and Grandfather's names were John Eugene Dakin, Sr. and John Eugene Dakin, Jr. My great-great grandfather was James Harrison Dakin and Arthitect. Originated from New York, built many buildings in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Louisiana I understand also buildings in New York. I just thought that this was interesting with the same name.

re Dakins of Fairfield & Wigan

Post by Gill fro on Sat Mar 29, 2008 2:39 am

Hi Joanne Wood
I have been researching my grandma Dakins family from Castleton and have noted other Dakin references in the neighbouring area.
The missing grandfather may be William Arthur Dakin (1841-1913) who had moved his family to the Wigan area by the 1901 census. On the 1881 census he was in Fairfield, farmer of 70 acres. He had inherited the farm from his father, John Dakin who is listed in the Landowners Return as a farmer of just over 75 acres in Fairfield. William Arthur married Hannah White on 20th May 1863 at Fairfield and they had 11 children of whom 9 survived infancy. I have the names of the children and dates of baptism but as your message was posted some time ago I will leave it there for now. Let me know if you need more information

Dakin stories I've heard..

Post by Linda Da on Tue Oct 21, 2008 10:42 am

My Dakin family lived in Hazlenden, Lancashire.. and worked in the cotton mills.
There was a story that a Dakin carriage driver eloped with the daughter of wealthy family from Derbyshire.. and may have settled in Fylde - Blackpool area.
Also, I once met a Michael Dakin from Manchester area.. who hurriedly told me that the Dakins 'Daykins' came to England with William the Conqueror 1066 and all that - there was something about being Carpenter/joiners. And chopping the ropes to set off for England from France - I have no idea where all this info. was gathered .. Perhaps this man can be found on the web. I am no expert at this genealogy stuff. Very Happy

Thanks for your reply to our post, We were not aware that 9 children were born to William Arthur and Hannah White but would love to share more information with you. you can contact us at Phylpopmac@aol.com with any info you have. We are thinking there were only six surviving children, four girls and two boys. One of the boys Edward William being my grandfather. The other boy Arthur seemed to disappear and we have not been able to trace him. The four girls all became teachers in Standish, Lancashire. Does this ring any bells for you?

Hope this helps
Joanne and Phyl

Hi Linda

I think you and i might be related as most of my family came from Haslingden, Castleton and Blackpool. If i'm right the person that eloped with the carriage driver was Sarah Fisher.

Would be great if you got in touch
