Hello to all Lincolnshire researchers. Lincs is a great county, lots of resources and friendly people; no, it isn't flat! Please feel free to start discussions, leave messages and make this group as helpful and worthwhile as I know it is capable of becoming.

Our logo is the Lincolnshire coat of arms: The wavy bend symbolises the coastline and the many waterways in the county. The ermine bend symbolises Ermine Street, a Roman road that runs through the county. The two fleur-de-lis are taken from the arms of the city of Lincoln. The supporters are the so-called Lincolnshire Yellowbellies, or soldiers of the 10th Regiment of Foot.

Found the 1837 Lincolnshire marriage index, but listing didn't go back far enough. The Hunt family I'm working on had 6 children born in area of Navenby, Lincoln, England. I have a 1841 Navenby Census UK showing them there. I also have immigrant record of the family leaving Liverpool for NY port, arriving 8 Jul 1845. So, the marriage of Richard R. Hunt & Jane Burgess in 1826 @ Heckington can't be reached on freebie listings. Ah-h-h well!

Thanks, gals. This info is different than what I've been working with. I've found what I thought was my family of Hunts, coming out of the Navenby, Lincoln, England. Just recently for the Brick Wall group, David? gave me this, that I thought was workable. Burials in Navenby noted: 28 Dec 1814, age 1854 for Richard Hunt. 3 May 1818, age 56...calb. 1762 for Ann Hunt. Also in the same listing is 2 Jul 1867 for Henry Hunt & 7 Oct 1885 for William, age 77.
Then there were births given by David: In Navenby,bap: John, 6 Jul 1760; Thomas, 10 Jun1792; Henry, 8 Jul1794; Elizabeth, 28 May1797;*Richard Hunt,12 Oct 1800( this person is targeted as my direct line); Mary,3 May1803 & William, 28 May1807. Names! How they can change searches. He also gave the name of Richard R. Hunt's parent's as Richard & Ann Hodson/Hudson married 10 from Navenby on 14 May 1788. Now is Willingore 10mi from Navenby. Today's maps don't show the town of least my world map. Anyway, I thank you Anne & Christine. I'll take this info you have given and chew on it for awhile. Sure! My address is: Welcome any ammo you gals got. Shirley

I can confirm the baptism of Richd Hunt at Navenby 9 April 1758 son of William and Phoebe (Graffoe Deanery Baptisms & Burials 1754-1812 LFHS CD). There were a number of other baptisms to the same couple there. According to the marriage indexes William Hunt married "Feby" Taylor at Wellingore 9 March 1751. Thomas Hunt and Mary Lane married 14 May 1702 at Wellingore according to the same index. Unfortunately neither Navenby or Wellingore are yet available on FreeReg as no results for Hunt in either parish were found.

Ok. I looked on ancestry to see if anyone had Richard Hunt & Ann Hodson in their tree, and found 2. Here is the info I gleaned from what they had:

Richard Hunt born 1758 in Navenby, LNCS

his dad- William Hunt born 1718 in Wellingore, LNCS
his mom-Phoebe Taylor born abt 1730 in Wellingore, LNCS

William's dad-Thomas Hunt born 1678 in Wellingore, LNCS
William's mom-Mary Lane born 1680

Thomas' dad--Thomas Hunt born 1651 in Welbourn, LNCS
Thomas' mom-Mary Bate born 1655
They were married 4 May, 1674

Thomas II's dad-Thomas Hunt born ?
Thomas II's mom-Alice born ?

The only proofs I saw that they might have is a birth record for Richard, which they did not show.

Shirley, if you give me your email address, I will email what I found on ancestry to you. I found the record of their marriage in England & Wales Marriages 1538-1940. I will also look to see if there are any people on ancestry that have them in their own tree.

There are a number of Lincolnshire records on Find My Past, another Pay per View site, that have been prepared by the Lincolnshire FHS. We also have a lot of publications, including marriage indexes 1700-1837 which is where I should imagine Christine got the marriage from. There is a free post 1837 marriage index on the web (see the link above), and FreeReg has a lot of Lincolnshire records on now.

By golly! Give me enough time and I can figure out how, when and where to contact people. I got it!! Tickled you found a record of Richard and Ann's union, they supposedly are Richard R.'s parents. All I had to go on was "Ann" and someone told me a possibility of this union. Where did you find it? Can I get it? Better yet, is it easy for you to get it ? The 1st of the year I'll be putting money put so I can delve into the nooks and crannies to get records. I've noted that many sites charge but what they offer, comes from So, if I select Ancestry, I should bve able to get many places. The rest of the crew of the Hunt family is posted on "brick walls, everyone has them". If you want me to, I'll post the names here. Thanks for the search you did. Appreciated.

To Shirley Vreeland: I justlooked up Richard Hunt Sr and found a marriage record for him & Ann Hodson 14 May, 1788 in Quarrington, Lincolnshire.

What other info are you looking for?
As to your question on cost, is $30 per month, or $300 per year. They have lots of records, so I believe it is worth the cost. I tried, but although they are less expensive, have NO records.

Hello Shirley,

Welcome to the group. It has not been very active of late! However, the LincsGen rootsweb list is very active, and very helpful. It may pay you to join that too. We are not allowed to advertise this site on the Rootsweb lists!!! The rootsweb list is free, and most of the sites linked above are free.

Oh, I forgot to finish my info here. Meant to tell you that I have record that the whole family immigrated to US by the Ship New York from Liverpool on 8 Jul 1945...
