red mail Harvey Family
Looking for any information on the Harvey Family, William Harvey in particular. William Harvey was born 28th December 1866, South Street, New Sleaford to Ann Maria Harvey nee Cummings or Commins and his father was John Porter Harvey (Butcher (Journeyman)). I have found William Harvey in the 1871 and 1881 census and then the family disappear. The rumour is that he joined the Merchant Navy under a false name and in later life he became known as Willimn Charles Harvey Golding. Can anyone confirm this? John Porter Harvey died in 1868 and Ann Maria married Francis Edward Maille in 1874. Many thanks

red mail BARNES family 1800-1850
My GG Grandfather was William Barnes (b: 1806). He married Mary (Ann) Newcomb (b: 1805) in Sleaford in 1842, and they had children William (1843), Mary (1845) John (1847) and Benjamin (1851). The family emigrated to Australia on the ship "James T Foord" sailing from Liverpool in August 1852, arriving in Geelong in December 1852. I believe William's parents were John Barnes and Sarah Mason, who married in about 1803. I would be interested to hear from anyone with more information on the Barnes families from this area. I suspect there were several families with the same surname, but our Barnes's seem to have come from Kirkby la Thorpe, Sleaford or Holdingham. Info on the Newcomb or Mason families may also be helpful. Thanks, Ron
