John Greaves (3) was baptized 30 Sept. 1785 at St. Mary's, Nottingham.  He lived in Red Hill, Nottingham, England[1]. John may have been licensee of the older of two pubs at Red Hill, Nottingham.  The locals said that Anne Boleyn was a frequent visitor at the pub on the way through to Sherwood Forest.  There is also a possibility that he (or a Green) owned the local brewery (the Home Brewery) but died intestate, leaving no known relatives.  John married Margaret Fisher on 4 July 1806 in St. Mary's, Nottingham.  (R‑1)

GENERATION 4

 

CHILDREN OF JOHN GREAVES (3)

Samuel Fisher Greaves (5) was born about 1808, and was baptized 30 Dec. 1808 in St. Mary's, Nottingham.  He married Caroline Barnett on 1 June 1838 at Leamington Priors, close to Kenilworth (Warwickshire) and Leamington Spa.  She was born about 1809 in Warwick, England.  Caroline may have been christened 4 Aug. 1812 at Brook St. Chapel, formerly Cow Lane Independent, daughter of John and Sarah Barnett.

Samuel was indentured on 27 Dec. 1823 into the drapery trade of Thomas Wilson & William Cutts.  (There is a possibility that he shot through from his apprenticeship in 1824.)  He must have died by 1824, since on 18 Nov. 1854 Caroline and the 3 children landed aboard the good ship "Kate" in Australia after a 6-month voyage.  Shipping records show that they paid one pound each for assisted passage, all could read and write, and they were Church of England religion.  Strangely, some of them were later buried as Presbyterian.  (R‑1)
