Mackrill's within Lincolnshire
Am interested in any Mackrill's born in Lincolnshire, I can directly link myself to 7 generations of Mackrill's from now back to 1730. The earliest 4 generations all born within Lincolnshire with a convict back in 1830 been sentenced to Van Diemen's (Tasmania) Australia for the term of his natural life. I have verified up to the 6th gen a John Mackrill born 1770 I am still in the process of confirming other data. Would love to know & chat with other family members of any Mackrill who may be related to me. Looking forward to hearing from someone soon. Regards Cheryl
red mail Ellis Pask 1757
Seeking marriage and death records for Ellis Pask b 1757 Bardney. Baptised 1/4/1757 Bardney. Parents Richard Pask and Hannah Ellis. All information gratefully received and acknowledged.
Seeking any personal information about a George Cook known as Cookie. He lived in a flat with my grandma in the early 1970's on the grange estate in Grimsby. If anyone knows him of of him, all i am looking for really are stories of him and my grandma together, Thank you Barbara-ann.
I am seeking any information as to my maternal grandfather Philip Scott-Philip Scott Pearce. He used both names. He was born in Grimsby in 1902 to John Henry & Kate Scott. He had a fair few siblings, Naomi,Maggie, John Henry, Charles, Kathleen, Priscilla to name a few. In 1933 he married my Grandma Barbara Yvonne Alp and together they had Annie, Martha, Norma, Herbert & francis. He was a very colorful chap so please don't worry about shocking me should you know anything about him. I know he was in the newspapers many times. I have been able to track all the birth and census records about him and his family, what i am looking for are stories, someone that knew him or knew of him. I have reason to think he maybe re-married to a Jean M Woodley in the 70's but i am not sure if that is my grandfather or another Philip Scott. Anything anyone can tell me now matter how bad please i would love to know so i can answer just a few questions. Many thanks Barbara-ann

William Mayfield Shaw
I'm trying to figure out how William Mayfield Shaw signed up for the Dragoon Guards in 1890 (unfit for service because he was too tall) and was naturalized in the US in 1892, which takes 5 years. Over and back? He was born in 1867 in Boston, Lincolnshire. 1871 census with his parents Thomas and Mary. 1881 census at Loughborough School (any records there). He had 2 children in the US including my grandfather and then disappeared when my grandpa was 1 in 1899. Thank you very much. Dave
Olive Wilkinson - where did she go?
Hi, I discovered that my Great Aunt had a daughter before she married & she is proving a real mystery lady so far! My Great Aunt's name was Florence Wilkinson, born in 1884 in Croxton Kerrial near Grantham in Lincolnshire, she was one of fifteen children born to George & Elizabeth (formerly Coddington) Wilkinson. Florence gave birth to her baby daughter on 14th May 1903, at her parent's home which was Fen Ends, Cowbit Road in Spalding Common,Lincolnshire. Florence is listed as a domestic servant, she named her daughter Olive May Wilkinson & she was baptised on 21st July the same year at St.Mary & St. Nicholas parish church in Spalding. Florence married George Frederick Betts on 2nd June 1909 at St. Paul's parish church in Spalding, they went on to have five daughters & two sons. The only other record I've found for Olive May is the 1911 census, she was living with her maternal Grandparents at Neslam Bridge in the village of Gosberton. This was where she first came to light, I knew Olive wasn't the daughter of any of George & Elizabeth's other children, so I ordered her birth certificate to confirm that she was indeed Florence's daughter. After the 1911 census she has vanished! I've spent many hours searching marriages, deaths, emigrations etc. All to no avail so far, any help would be fantastic.
I have posted before under Staffordshire and Huntingdonshire as the birthplace of my great grandfather, Wilfred Travers. However, LINCOLNSHIRE also appears in two cases as his place of birth on his children's birth certificates so now favour it as being most likely. His birth year should be 1831. His father possibly was a shoemaker and probably called Arthur Travers. I have not been able to find any record of him in the UK at all and do not know when he arrived in Australia but possibly on the General Hewitt in 1851 where there was a "Mr Travers". He married MATILDA MARGARET WEBSTER from Aston, Birmingham, born in 1845, in Melbourne in 1869. He was expert at lawn bowls and deemed fit to be a greyhound judge. He was the Manager of the Omnibus companies (horse drawn) in both Melbourne and Sydney.

Marshall & Allen families of Pointon & Silk Willoughby
I think that my great x 3 grandmother Sarah (born c1794 in Silk Willoughby, info from census returns) was baptised at Silk Willoughby Lincolnshire on 14th July 1794. Sarah married William Marshall & settled in Pointon Fen Lincolnshire, where they farmed. They had the following children, Sarah, Susanna, William & Mary Ann. I have never found William & Sarah's marriage. After searching Silk Willoughby parish registers for baptisms of a Sarah around the right time & by a process of elimination (& finding marriages for any other possible Sarahs) I came to the conlusion that her maiden name was Allen, the baptism record gives her parent's names as James & Susanna, I haven't found a marriage that fits for them either. Any help would be great, thanks.

I am looking for information on a Mary Ann Hall, born about 1806, probably in Lincolnshire. She attended the "British School" in Horncastle, Lincolnshire at the age of 11 and possibly longer. I am curious to learn more about her and her family's genealogy. I recently purchased a lovely sampler with her name, date (1817) and age on it. It also says "Bristish School Horncastle".

red mail Rudkin - Lincolnshire, ENG->Arkansas, USA
I am searching desperately for information on John R. Rudkin, my gr grandfather. He was born in Lincolnshire, ENG. I have three significant events each with a different birthdate: US Civil War Enlistment shows BD as 1824; Cleveland Co, AR, USA 1870 Census shows BD as 1833; and Jefferson Co, AR, USA 1870 Census shows BD as 1832. The earliest date that I have in his war record is 1861. I need to connect the dots from Lincolnshire ENG to Jefferson County Arkansas, USA. There was a John Rudkin, illigitimate son of Louisa Rudkin (Louisa's parents were Daniel Rudkin and Alice Fryer) who married David Meyers. They were listed on the 1851 Census(info provided by another researcher)living at 101 Pipe Makers Lane, Boston, Lincolnshire, ENG with children David and George and Louisa's illigitimate son John Rudkin. This family migrated to Canada. This is a good possibility, but I haven't been able to connect from Canada to Jefferson County Arkansas USA. Hoping for a response.
