The Ellis of Winster Family Tree web site on Tribal Pages is administered by John Cedric Ellis,Winster born but left at the age of 20 when I married Patricia Mayling,my teenage girl friend and next door neighbour, is a collection of information gleaned over about 40 years which began with talks to mothers and fathers and other relatives followed by many days of searching the parish records in the Derbyshire Record Office and with the advent of PC's and availability of Ancestry and other search sites,additional data.My son ,Andrew spent considerable time on his computer and Dawn Scotting in New Zealand added extra revealing facts.
As with most families there are a few mysteries.Why did the surname Warfield become alias and eventually Ellis?It was common practise to use the term alias for an illegitimate child so both it's parents were recorded,hence Warfield alias Ellis. Why did Charles Lewis Holland add Mayling to his surname?Was James Blagden Slaney,who was the illegitimate son of Georgina Slaney,the son of a Mr.Blagden.Unfortunately it is unlikely that these questions will ever be answered. In a number of families there is a natural derivation of the surname as very often they could not read or write and the recorder /scribe/minister wrote it as it was pronounced-such an example is that of Slaney which was derived from Sleinard through Sleyney. The research is on-going and will be added to as further information is obtained.
