This is still a very much "work in progress" project and I am working my way through information provided by others who link into the families on this tree in order to verify my own. I am most grateful for the help and information provided so far.

OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALLIST
Sidney (Sydney) John Robinson born Denton 1876, son of William and Rebecca struck not just Gold but Silver and Bronze too in the 1900 Paris Olympics. He was a middle- distance athlete who specialised in the steeplechase. He won Gold in the 5000 metres team race, Silver in 2500 metres steeplechase and bronze in the 4000 metres steeplechase. As well as a successful athlete, he worked as Postmaster and Carpenter in Denton.
The 1841 Northampton Mercury Newspaper carried the following report: "Joseph Bedford 21, William Downing 31, and James Underwood 21 (George James Underwood, charged with the wilful murder of John Dunkley at the parish of Yardley Hastings, on the 6th October last".
All three accused can be found in this tree.
John Dunkley was a local gamekeeper who chanced upon the 3 who were thought to be poaching. Somehow, a gun was fired leaving Dunkley dead and 3 arrests were made. None of the three would admit to pulling the trigger so they were all transported.
I am currently sifting through some details of what looks like a case of bigamy possibly concerning Ann Elizabeth Bedford born 1847. Ann married Joseph Robinson in 1866 but he was absent on the 1871 census when she was living with her aunt Mary Smart. Ann then married again in 1873 to William Rainbow but as Ann Bedford and not Ann Robinson. So far I have found no trace of a death of Joseph Robinson between 1866 and 1873.
