William Cree (of Sprotbrough, Yorkshire)

Male, CreeID#3367, (between 1713 and 1714 - June 1750)
ChartsLine 14. The Sprotbrough line
William Cree (of Sprotbrough, Yorkshire) was born between 1713 and 1714. The date is calculated from his age as given on his marriage licence.1

It has been suggested that William Cree (of Sprotbrough, Yorkshire), progenitor of the Sprotbrough, Yorkshire, line, may be the same person as William Cree from Abernethy, Perthshire, Scotland. William Cree (of Sprotbrough, Yorkshire) was a gardener who named his sons John and William while William Cree had an elder brother John.2

We have found no further record of William Cree in Abernethy after his baptism.

Y-DNA tests on the descendants of William Cree (of Sprotbrough, Yorkshire) and Thomas Crie show that they are closely related. Since they cannot be brothers (William being too old) they are almost certainly first cousins.3

William Cree (of Sprotbrough, Yorkshire) married Martha Nicholson, daughter of John Nicholson and Elizabeth Jud, on 2 July 1744 in Parish Church, Sprotbrough, Yorkshire, England. The circumstances of their marriage are discussed in a separate article here.4,5
Sprotbrough Hall, Yorkshire, former seat of the Copley family


His daughter Elizabeth Cree was baptised on 21 September 1744 in St Georges, Doncaster, Yorkshire, England.6

His daughter Ann Cree was baptised on 9 March 1745/46 in Sprotbrough, Yorkshire, England.7

His daughter Ann Cree died in May 1747.8

His son John Cree was baptised on 22 November 1747 in Sprotbrough, Yorkshire.9

His son William Cree was baptised on 17 September 1749 in Sprotbrough, Yorkshire.5,10

William Cree (of Sprotbrough, Yorkshire) died in June 1750 in Sprotbrough, Yorkshire. He was buried on 1 July 1750 in St Mary the Virgin, Sprotbrough, Yorkshire, England. "Gardiner to Godfrey Copley esq."5

On 14 February 1750/51 Martha Cree appeared as a witness in the House of Lords. (Her name is recorded in error as Mary; the fact that it was Martha Cree is shown in the record for 5 Feb where she and others were ordered to attend on the 14th.)

The Order of the Day being read, for the Second Reading of the Bill, intituled, 'An Act to dissolve the Marriage of Godfrey Copley Esquire with Anna Maria Brace his now Wife, and to enable him to marry again, and for other Purposes therein mentioned,' and for hearing Counsel, as well for as against the same...

Jane Bray was next produced, sworn, and examined as to any and what Familiarities she had seen or known between one Mr. Perkins and Mrs. Copley, and related certain very indecent ones.

Sarah Tanner, Servant to Mrs Copley in the Year 1743, was also called, sworn, and examined in relation to the same Matter, and gave an Account likewise to the House of very indecent Familiarities between the said Mr. Perkins and Mrs Copley...9


A receipt dated 26 March 1757 exists for "£60 received by Joseph Nicholson from Henry Townrowe for the use of Martha Cree, widow." Henry Townrowe was a schoolmaster of Conisborough.10

A quitclaim of 8 August 1793 refers to "Martha Cree of Sprotborough, widow, late Martha Nicholson, one of the daughters of John Nicholson, late of Conisbrough, yeoman, deceased, to Ann Nicholson, widow of Joseph Nicholson, late of Conisborough, yeoman, deceased. Title to an annuity of 40s. and legacy of £60."11

She was launched on the 17 January 1900 and named QUEENIE (the original Lloyds Al certificate still exists). She was sold in 1901 to Mr F A Richards who renamed her GULNARE after a rock in western Scotland. In 1906 she changed hands and was bought by Charles Cree, a barrister. He sailed her with his family until his death in 1920 when his son Donald Cree took over ownership. Donald, who was also a barrister, was Honorary Secretary of the Royal Cruising Club during the 1930s and beyond. There are many references to GULNARE in the Clubs journals including an interesting account of a cruise to France and the West Country in 1932 (copy available). Donald Cree moored the boat on the Hamble and she was well known in the Solent. The long family association ended in 1962 when she was sold to John Panton."
