SOME INTRODUCTORY REMARKS:

Most of this research has been carried out by Mr. F.H. Trotman of Mapperley Park, Nottingham, he was the author of a book on the Trotman Family.

Letter from F. H. Trotman Nov.4th 1975:

‘I enclose a tree of Edward Trotman’s descendents & those of another family originating in Coaley who moved to Hawkesbury. I also enclose a list of entries which I have not been able to place on any of these two trees. Some may belong to these trees but, for example, in 1695’6 & 1696 there are two Marys buried & one cannot say to which one these refer.

You will notice the earlier spelling of the name was Tratman, as mentioned in the book, the name was spelled differently at different times, even for the same person.’


(?) EDWARD TRATMAN, Great X Grandfather of Richard Barton

 Father of Nicholas Tratman I

Also Father of Oliffe, Mrs Dangerfield, Elizabeth, Edith Prowte, Margaret Neale, Christopher and Edward

Edward Tratman was buried at Hawkesbury on 3rd November 1617. He made a will in   September 1614 in which he stated that he was a Yeoman of Hawkesbury and owner of a Mill at Kilcott. The will was proved on 9th July 1618. His wife may have been buried on 15th February 1616/7 at Hawkesbury but as she is not mentioned in the will this may not be the relevant entry.

Edward was the Sole Executor of his son Christopher’s will and was mentioned in Thomas Dangerfield’s will.

The Will of Edward Tratman (a superficial transcript with modern spellings):

‘In the Name of God Amen. I Edward Tratman of ye Parish of Hauksbury in the County of Gloucester, Yeoman being sick in body but of good and perfect memory the Lord be praised do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following. First I commend my soul into the hands of the Lord my God who gave it unto me verily … by the … obedience of my Saviour the all sufficient redeemer  Christ Jesus to have dominion of all my sins … obtaining salvation, commending my body in the mean time unto the earth to be buried in Christian burial at the discretion of my executor … As for my goods, Impris I bequeath and give unto the poor of Hawkesbury twenty shillings.

F.H. Trotman wrote in 1983:

‘It does seem to be a little uncertain what the exact order of Nicholas and Susanna’s children was. It is a pity that the baptisms of Richard, Katherine and Margaret are missing but I think as you say Richard was the eldest son and Nicholas the youngest.’


RICHARD TRATTMAN, Great VIII Grandfather of Richard Barton

Richard Trattman was born in about 1603. He was under eighteen years in 1618. He was mentioned in the wills of his grandfather and both parents.
