Thomas Dykes
I am hoping that someone out there may be able to make a connection for me. I have had some success recently with an enquiry for a George Dykes, born Corby, Lincolnshire, 1794. It seems that his parents were Thomas Dykes and Mary Brewster, who married in Corby in December 1792. Can anyone confirm, please, that this was the same Thomas Dykes who was born in Bottesford, ( Leicestershire ??) in 1767 and that his parents in turn were John and Ann. We have a bit of confusion in the family that Thomas's father was called Henry and ther are quite a few people about with the same names. Hoping someone can clarify, please.

red mail The Bailey's of Bottesford and Croxton Kerrial
Hello everyone. I have recently started to research my family and have just found your site (very interesting). I would be very grateful for any information and/or photo's connected with my family conections to Normanton, Bottesford and Croxton Kerrial. My Great, Great Grandfather was Henry Bailey, born in Bottesford in 1811. Henry married Elizabeth Robinson (also born in Bottesford I believe) in 1831. Thomas Bailey, my great grandfather, was born to Henry and Elizabeth in 1845 and the 1851 census shows them as living in High Street, Bottesford when Thomas was six years old. Thomas, who was a bricklayer, married Harriet Charity (b. 1847 Croxton Kerrial) on 21st September 1870 in Croxton Kerrial (I have lots on info. on the Charity's). Thomas, Harriet & family show up living at 'The Nook, Croxton Kerrial' in the 1881, 1891 and 1901 Censuses but, apart from the birth of my Grandfather, Thomas Henry Bailey, who was born in 1871 in Croxton Kerrial, I can find nothing between 1851 and 1881. My Grandfather, Thomas Henry Bailey, married Sarah Ann Jackson (from Billinghay) in Grantham in 1899. Anything at all would be very much appreciated. Kind regards, Stan
