A Presentation by Pauline Thorn
Godfrey Marsden entered the history of Thrybergh during the period of the demise of the Reresby family who had held the estate for several hundred years, Godfrey's marriage is listed on the Sheffield Marriage Fiche however states page is blank for his wife's name. Godfrey is described as a clothier of Thriber. At the time of writing 26/03/08 it is believed that he was one Godfrey Marsden baptised at Penistone on the 13th March 1655 the son of Ricardus / Richard Marsden of that place.
As a clothier in the later half of the 17th century Godfrey was in a growing flourishing industry, during this century clothing was to evolve from a cottage industry into mechanized factory production. The clothier would produce the cloth on looms within his cottage and sell the finished cloth to local tailors, who would then produce the clothing or sell the many materials. In particular Yorkshire became famous for it's worsted wool worldwide, and the city of Leeds became the biggest producer in England of ready to wear clothing.
The clothiers who produced the cloth were often farmers who spun the cloth on the quieter periods of the farming seasons, however with the advent of mechanization many of them found themselves struggling to sell their wares by the late 17th century, rather like the 20th century when the introduction of supermarkets forced the small shopkeepers out of business. The time of the cotton mills and mass production was here. How Godfrey faired at this time is unknown but with the knowledge that his son Benjamin became a pipemaker in Rotherham perhaps hints that Godfrey's business did not flourish and that he may have been one of the many clothiers who suffered due to the ever growing mills.
Given that a Clothier is described as "One that makes or sells clothing or cloth. a merchant who sells men's clothing one who dresses or fulls cloth." Did he perhaps survive on making not only cloth but also making simple clothing for the local communities, hopefully somewhere local records may hold the answer.
One thing is sure and that is, he lived at Thrybergh during one of it's most troubled periods, a time when the Lord of the Manor was eventually cast into the debtors prison and the village was passed on to the Saville family of nearby Mexborough.
Whilst at Thrybergh Godfrey and his wife had the following children.
James Marsden who was born at Thrybergh circa 1709,
and his baptism is recorded on the 23rd Aug 1709, Thrybergh, Rotherham, Yorkshire
William Marsden the second son was born at Thrybergh circa 1711, and his baptism recorded on the 17th July 1711at Thrybergh, Rotherham, Yorkshire
Matthew Marsden the fourth son was born at Thrybergh circa1714, his Baptism being recorded on the 1st October 1714 at Thrybergh, Rotherham, Yorkshire.
Benjamin and Hannah had the following children.
Also listed in Thrybergh are the following Marsden's whose relationship to the above if any is not certain.
Dorothy Marsden married John Crosby on the18th June 1713 at Thrybergh, Yorkshire, England
Richard Marsden and his wife Sarah Marsden had a son born circa 1722 who was Samual Marsden whose christening is recorded on the 21st November 1722 at Thrybergh, Yorkshire, England
Ten years later circa 1732 a Sarah Marsden was born daughter of Richard Marsden her Christening being recorded on the 25th January 1732 at Thrybergh, Yorkshire, England
Here is a bit of a mystery from the I. G. I.
Sarah Marsden married George Glasby on the 1st December 1739 at Thrybergh, Yorkshire, England
Sarah Marsden married George Hurst on the 29th December 1739 at Thrybergh, Yorkshire, England
Has someone made a blooper once again ?
Then we have possibly the last records of the Marsden name in Thrybergh with:
Louisa Marsden born circa 1814 daughter of
Mary Marsden Louisa's Christening being recorded on the 20th March 1814 at
Thrybergh, Yorkshire, England
4 I. G. I.
