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 Fletcher. Anderton. Leeson. Roberts. Jeff's.
Researching the above Surnames. As far as I know the Fletchers go back a very long time in Leicestershire/Warwickshire. The Anderton side of the family are originally from Lancashire. Leeson as far as I know is Hinckley for many years. Any help appreciated as I have done a lot of research but mainly with the Fletcher/Anderton my father and mothers side. Thanks David
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.

I am trying to find the marriage of a THOMAS WILBUR who was born in BURBAGE abt 1860 , He married an ELIZA who was born in HINCKLEY, I have found a marriage of a THOMAS WILBUR in 1872 but no ELIZA . But that couldn.t have been him in any case as he would have only been about 12. Can anyone help. Thanks Kathleen
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.

red mail Payne Family - Hinckley
I have some details on my Payne family tree for the Hinckley area going back from the late 1700's to the late 1900's, but the information is very sketchy. For many people I have only the links between them, first names and dates of birth, but hopefully someone out there can help link into the family somehow. The information partly came from an old family bible (not in my posession but I trust the information) and also research done over the past 30 years. The oldest members listed are: Gen 1: James Payne who married Rachel Lamb (no dates) Gen 2: They had a son James Payne (1782-1844) who married Ann Wood (1781-1866). Also had a daughter Ann (1787-?). Gen 3: James/Ann Payne had 13 children - Benjamin (1805-?), Hannah (1807-?), Thomas (1809-1811), George (1811-?), Thomas (1813-1899), Samuel (1815-1889), Peter (1817-1844), Charlotte (1819-1897), Charles (1821-?), Emma (1824-?), James (1826-1899), Henry (1828-?), Daniel (1830-?). Eleven of these children were baptised in Hinckley. Benjamin's son James was known as James of Bruntingthorpe. Benjamin's sons Arthur and Thomas were possibly gunsmiths, top of Castle St. Hinckley. Thomas (1813-1899) was a pioneer of steam (1855) at the Hinckley Hosiery factory. He retired to Dawlish. The grandaughters of Samuel Payne (1815-1889), Lizzie and Eva were school mistresses at Nailstone. Does this mean anything to anyone? I have spent the past year trying to find connections in Leicestershire via the web, but have not had any luck so far. I do have a lot more names in this chart, but these are the earliest ones and also have at least birth dates for most of the people I listed.

red mail Elisha Jackson
Great grandfather Elisha Jackson, born 4 Jun 1851 in Burbage near Hinckley. Any information regarding Elisha, who married Selina Toon in Leicester on 26 June, 1870 where he remained - as far as we know, would be much appreciated. His birth certificate shows the spelling Elishua, but he appears as Elisha on all subsequent documents. His daughter, Ethel, had an illegitimate son, Frank (born 8 Jan 1911) and although her parents then lived at 197 Birstall Street, Leicester, Frank's birth certificate records an address of 148 Tomkinson Road, Stockingford, Nuneaton - AN ADDRESS THAT 1911 CENSUS DOES NOT RECOGNISE! This looks as if Ethel has gone/been sent to relatives to give birth. Are any Jackson's in the area in 1911? Any clues would be much appreciated. Greg
