From the obituary of Albert FRITCHLEY( my gr.gr.grandfather) I have learned that his father was John FRITCHLEY and that he emigrated from England in the mid 1800's. My gr.grandmother said that John was from Fritchley. Were there many churches in the area around 1824? I found a John FRITCHLEY in the parish register of Crich that seemed to have the correct birth date. According to the newspaper, my gr.gr.gr.grandfather was born abt.1824. The parish register shows a John FRITCHLEY b. 1823 and bp. 1825. Can anyone tell me if there would have been a lot of John FRITCHLEY's born circa 1824 in this area? Crich looks lovely. It actually looks like the area where John settled in America. It's where I still live. Thanks.
