DATE: 11th SEPTEMBER 2012, at 7pm for 7.30pm start
LOCATION:Old Chapel Schoolrooms, Crescent Road, Dukinfield, SK16 4EN(This meeting is also the AGM of the Family History Society of Cheshire (Tameside Group) but this is not expected to take long.).

TOPIC: Barons and Bastards - the Story of the Dukinfield Family's involvement in the Slave Trade and their Slave Plantations in Jamaica and North Carolina

SPEAKER: Gay Jeanne Oliver

COST: There is a £2 charge for non-members of the Society


We have always stressed the importance of the building in the development of three religious movements during the Civil War period, the Congregationalists, the Quakers and the Unitarians, but also because it is the last remaining link with the home of the Duckenfield family, Lords of the Manor. The speaker's interest was sparked a few years ago by her accidental discovery of Dukinfield family documents in the Cooper Family Collection at The London Metropolitan Archives, including the Will of the grandson of Colonel Robert Dukinfield, another Robert Dukinfield, who died in Jamaica in 1755.

The will contained these two paragraphs:
His Will dated 1755 Extracts:
On Jane Engusson, a free negro woman, he settled 101 acres and 14 slaves, 2 lots of land in East Kingston (Duke Street) and the use of his town house in East Kingston until his brother Samuel should arrive from England, and all his furniture and plate, with £300 to have a house built on one of the fore mentioned lots. Also one of his chaises.

​To each of his two sons, William and Estcourt Dukinfield, by Jane engusson, 400 acres, 4 slaves and a building lot in Kingston (opposite to Thomas Wheeler, Duke Street) To their sister Elizabeth 417 acres, 7 slaves and a building lot in Kingston adjacent to her brother. Also £500 to William, £500 to Estcourt and £1,000 as a dowry for Elizabeth provided she marry a white man.Gay invites you to come along and find out more, and see some of the rare documents she found along the way.

This is a chance for you to hear what the future might hold for Old Hall Chapel. At present Architects are studying the building and are preparing proposals to stabilise it as a 'controlled ruin'. An archaeological dig has taken place but has been put in abeyance until the structure is completely safe, when it can resume. 
A Conservation Management Plan is also being drawn up covering matters like access, security, general appearance of the site, educational opportunities, signage, digital and traditional interpretation, and so on. The recommended proposals will be ready to be revealed at the meeting on 8 April, when the Architects will make a full presentation. Also present will be representatives from English Heritage who are paying for the Study and who will be able to explain the next steps in the campaign to save the Grade II* Listed Building.
Please bring along anyone you know who might like to express an opinion, or just learn about what is happening to this building, the oldest in Dukinfield. If you can't come but have something to ask or say, please contact us.
