I am a member of a NADFAS team of Church Recorders who are currently working in Gaddesby Church, among other things, recording the memorials.
The information generated by David Swinscoe's enquiry has been most valuable, and at present Richard Fletcher's comments have added to what we know. I haven't deeply researched Myron Cheney's lead, but again it looks to have potential.
Here is a little more we have that may help. In the late 17th century the Cheneys appear to be in Ashford, just north of Bakewell. Thomas Cheney, who died in 1723 is commemorated on a wall memorial in Monyash Church. His son, Edward purchased the final third of the Lordship of Monyash in 1735. Some Cheneys returned to be buried at this Church, including Edward Hawkins Cheney's sister, Jemima, who is also commemorated on a wall plaque in Gadddesby Church. She died at Castlegate House Grantham, and it would be nice to know where this property fits in.
We believe Edward Hawkins Cheney lies in Ashby Folville Churchyard with his wife Eliza (Ayre) Cheney and the Ayre family.
His son, Edward Henshaw Cheney lies in Gaddesby Churchyard, at the Eastern end. He was high Sherriff for Leicestershire in 1860.
