BARRATT of Hinckley
I am searching for information on George BARRATT, born at Hinckley in about 1832, who appears to have married a Mary Ann DOHERTY at Nuneaton in 1852. They had a number of children, and later became itinerant photographers in the Gloucestershire area, changing their names to M. & Mme. BARAT during the later 1850s. They settled during the 1860s at Banbury, where they set up a studio, but had probably moved on to London by 1871. They seem to have been a very musical family, with at least two children turning professional (singer; piano teacher). George was apparently still alive in Hampstead in 1901, with a second wife named Clara. There seems a strong element of showmanship in this family, with assumed identities, and any insights will be most gratefully received.

Mary BACON was the maiden name of my 3xggm who, according to the 1851 census was born in Hinckley and in 1871 was born in Sharnford, around 1823. She was married to David ROCKINGHAM who was also known as David Rockingham SMITH. Any information on the BACON family in and around Hinckley or Sharnford would be greatly appreciated.

red mail Thomas Henry Bates
I am researching the Bates line in my family tree. My great grandfather was Thomas Henry Bates, born 1866, Kentish Town, St. Pancras. I believe Thomas was an only child, not finding any other records. He was a Merchant Seaman (ships cook) and think he died at sea during WW1. His parents were Henry Bates, born about 1842, Sharnford, Leicestershire and Lucy Ann Bush was his mother. Census records show them living in the Hinckley area around 1861 to 1881. Looking for any information on the Bates Family. Henry's parents were James Bates and Harriet Bilson/Billson. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

red mail Smith / Sims
John Smith, an Ostler by trade, marries Mary Poole (a widow - originally Mary Sims) on 6 May 1792 at St. Marys Hinckley by license. John signed and Mary made her mark. Witnesses were Richard Clarke and Natt Smith. Natt also witnessed 2 other marriages on the page and is probably a witness provided by the church. The license bond was for 200-pounds and was assured by John Smith (Ostler) and John Ensor (Innkeeper), it is possible he was Johns employer.

red mail RICHMOND family
I'm looking for pre-1800 information on the family of Thomas RICHMOND, thought to have been born in Hinckley around 1809. He married Elizabeth NEEDHAM and they were definitely living in Leicester by the time of the 1841 census, but as they married in St. Margaret's church in Leicester in 1828, possibly moved there before marriage. Would like to prove that he was definitely born in Hinckley.

red mail Jennings family of Hinckley, Leicestershire.
Seeking info on a James JENNINGS born 1786 in Hinckley, Mary his wife born 1783 also in Hinckley. Their son, Charles JENNINGS born about 1817 in Hinckley who married Susannah Bennett in 1840 in Loughborough, Leicestershire. My Great Grandparents, like many others with the same name were certain of their connection with Charles JENNENS and GOPSALL HALL but nothing was ever proved one way or another. But it would be nice to at least trace my JENNINGS family.
