Notes for Research Names Schooley

These notes are for Thomas Schooley and several other Quaker Schooleys from the Derbyshire-Yorkshire border area who might be relatives or siblings of Thomas Schooley, who married Sarah Parker and died about 1724 in New Jersey. Researcher James B. Schooley speculated that several of these people were sibling children of Robert Schooley [1].

Several of these potential siblings with Quaker records in England: John, Robert (married to Sarah Bingham), Thomas, and William Schooley, were early settlers in Burlington County, New Jersey. Another potential relative, Mary Schooley, was named as the daughter of Robert Schooley [2] and brother of Robert Schooley Jr on Mary Schooley's marriage record in New Jersey [3].

The only document that we have found about the geographic origin of the New Jersey Schooley families is a New Jersey deed dated 1687, which named John Schooley as being late of Aughton in the parish of Aston, Yorkshire, England. We have not yet found any Quaker records for John Schooley of Aughton, England. We have found Quaker records near Aughton for Robert, Thomas, William, Martha, Robert, and Sarah Scholey. All of these names appeared in Quaker records in England, and they jointly witnessed weddings of themselves and of others, in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Yorkshire, near the area of Aughton in Aston parish. There were records for William, Martha, Robert (married to Alice), and Sarah, in England after 1680, after the New Jersey Schooley immigrants had arrived in America. The emigrants Robert (married to Sarah Bingham) and Thomas Schooley first appeared in New Jersey records in 1677-78. There are Quaker records in England for more than one Robert Scholey, so it is unlikely that all of these people are siblings.

Wikipedia indicates that Aston, South Yorkshire "joined local villages Aughton and Swallownest, to form the Aston cum Aughton civil parish" in the metropolitan borough of Rotherham. [4] Genuki indicates that "Aughton, in the township of Aston with Aughton, and parish of Aston, Upper division of Strafforth and Tickhill; 4 miles S. of Rotherham, 9½ from Worksop, (Notts.) 18 from Mansfield, (Notts.) Pop. included in Aston." A map of the parishes of the West Riding, Yorkshire indicates that Aston parish consisted of two areas, one of which was adjacent to Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. [5] Aston, and surrounding locations are shown on three maps of West Yorkshire dated 1645 - 1695. [6] [7] [8]

Schooley Quaker records in England, perhaps of the New Jersey Schooley settlers and their siblings:

1659 Robert Scholey was among 31 Quakers who were subjected to violence and were sent to prison because they were having a Meeting at Dronfield, Derbyshire, England. Dated June 20. Thomas Foulk, another New Jersey immigrant was also named. [10]

1662 An indenture [possibly a lease] was made 14 Oct. 1662 in which William Spencer demised to William Scoley 4 messuages, 400 acres of land, 200 acres of meadow, 400 acres of pasture and a fulling mill with appurtenances in Elkesley and West Drayton, Nottinghamshire, for a term of 7 years. [11]

1672-73 David Hey reported that there were 5 Scholey families in Aston, Yorkshire, listed in Hearth Tax returns for 1672. [12] [13]

Scholey is a minor place-name, derived from Old Scandanavian skali and Old English leah, and referring to a small settlement in a clearing in the parish of Hemsworth, where Osbert de Scoley was recorded in 1244 and Adam de Scoley in 1313. Three families with this surname were taxed in Hemsworth in 1379. Three centuries later, the hearth tax returns listed 20 Scholeys in south Yorkshire (13 of them in central and eastern parts, including 5 in Aston and 3 in Amthorpe). Another 15 were living just to the north or north east of Hemsworth in a group of nine neighboring townships in Osgoldcross wapentake, 8 others were taxed in and around Wakefield, north-west of Hemsworth, and single households were found several miles to the north at Cawood and York The distribution of the Scholeys in 1672-73 confirms the earlier evidence that the surname arose from a farmstead in Hemsworth parish.

1673 James Faura [Pharo] of Great Dreaton and Anne Mirfin were married on December 13, at Bawtry (marginal note: Sand meeting), witnessed by Robert Murfin, Katherine Murfin, William Scholey, Robert Scoley, and others [14]. James Pharo and wife Anne Myrfin emigrated to Burlington, New Jersey on the ship Shield in 1677. Their son, Gervis Pharo witnessed the marriage of John Schooley to Rebecca Bennett in New Jersey.

1674 Thomas Scholey, gentleman, age 40, of Wakefield All Saints, West Riding, was a witness at a pension hearing for John Peables of Dewsbury. [15]

1675 Robert Schooley, of Whitwell, Derbyshire, and Sarah Bingham, daughter of Richard Bingham of Mansfield, Woodhouse, were married on April 14, at Skegby meeting (marginal note: west side meeting), Derbyshire, England. Witnessed by Richard Bingham Sr, Richard Bingham Jr, Samuel Bingham, William Scholey, Thomas Schooley and others. [16]

1675 Robert Scoley, clothier, and wife Sarah were charged with not attending church and lay non-conformity for the last three months, Quakers, at Warsop. Date: October 22, 1675. [17]

1679 "Alice Scholey, daughter of Robert & Mary Schooley, of Mansfield Woodhouse in the county of Nottingham [England], was born the 16th day of the 2d month 1678." Dated April 16, 1678/79. (west side forrest meeting) [22] This Robert married to Mary Schooley in 1679 must be different from Robert Scholey married to Sarah Bingham, since Robert and Sarah were married in 1675 and were still married in New Jersey.

1682 John Scholey, age 36, yeoman of Aston with Aughton was a witness to the will of Nicholas Lockey in West Riding, Yorkshire [England]. [23]

1682 William Scoley, weaver of Worksop, Nottinghamshire, and Thomas Rausom, weaver, were charged with not attending church at Worksop on November 15, 1682. [24]

1685 William Scoley, weaver of Worksop, Nottinghamshire, was charged with not attending church and not receiving holy communion at Worsop on 8.5.1685. [29]

Other authors have reported the research notes below. We have not yet found original documents for these notes.

1500-1600 "The parish church of Aston is All Saints at Aston. ... In the old and now closed burial ground of All Saints are the burial vaults of the Scholeys in the years 1500-1600. Inscriptions on the vaults bear the name of 'Scholeys of Smallage House' " [140] Smallage Farm, Fence, also known as Scholey's Copse was the property of the Scholey family for many years. [Wayback Machine http://www.wickersleyweb.co.uk/gen/scholey.htm][141]

1607 Property in Westgate, Wakefield, Yorkshire, West Riding was transferred from T Scholey to R Beiston. [142]

1633 In May, Richard Scholey married Elizabeth Youle in Aston, Yorkshire. [143]

Carolyn Syrin Valentine [144] summarized a substantial amount of useful research about the Schooley family of Yorkshire and named William Scholey of Aston parish and Robert Scholey of Aughton as possible ancestors for the New Jersey Schooley.

Maria M Schooley suggested William Scholey of Aston (died 1641) or Robert Scholey of Aughton (died 1662) as potential ancestors of the New Jersey Schooleys [145].

One account of the family of John Schooley, given in 1886 by Barclay White, reports: "John Schooley, Jr. was the son of John Schooley of Handsworth Parish, County of York, England. By location and purchase he became the owner of 615 acres of land in the township of Springfield, Burlington county, New Jersey." [146] [147]

Several researchers have entertained the possibility that John Schooley and Elizabeth Fletcher were the parents of our Thomas Schooley, husband of Sarah Parker. Our notes for John Schooley and Elizabeth Fletcher [148] suggest that Elizabeth's parents might have been non-conformists. We have not yet found any other evidence linking the New Jersey Schooley immigrants to John Scholey and Elizabeth Fletcher. Several of those researchers also discussed ancestries for John Schooley, married to Elizabeth Fletcher, based on wills of two apparently unrelated men named Richard Scholey. Thomas Henry Silliman [THS] Schooley stated that John was the son of Richard Scholey, of Easton on the Hill, who died in 1638 [149]. May Ivey Schooley also named Richard Schooley, of Easton on the Hill, as the father of John Schooley [150]. George A. Schooley reports the same ancestry, based on the research of May Ivey Schooley. [151] James B Schooley revised the research of THS Schooley and named Robert Schooley as the father of John and Thomas [152], noting that Richard Scholey, of Easton on the Hill, had only one known son named Anthony [153], and suggested both Elizabeth Fletcher and Isabell Hancock as potential wives [154].
