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.

My family comes from the villages around Wisbech, in the counties of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Huntingdonshire: see my surname list at

  Thanks for the info Anne.

You should be able to see baptisms and burials for 1800-1845, but not marriages. They finish at 1837.

  Well, I'll have to check this Lincolnshire connection.  I'll be mighty surprised if I can access info for years of 1800 - 1845. Someday I'll give it a shot.

Welcome Walter


All of you may be interested to know that Lincolnshire parish registers are now available on-line. The site is very new and there are a few tweaks needed, but do send in your feedback. The link is www. lincstothe past/com


When I've remembered how to do it I'll add it to the links above!

On my Charlton line my 4th great-grandparents were Moses Charlton and Ann Archer.  Moses was born ca 1771.  They married in 1798 in Burgh-Le-Marsh.  Edward was their son born ca 1799.  Edward married Mary Ann Hildred, born ca 1807 to David Hildred and Elizabeth Moody.  Edward and Mary Ann married 28 August 1828 in South Thoresby.  Their children were George (Born 24 Sept 1833), Mary Ann, Archer, and Jane (My great-great grandmother - Born 17 Sept 1837) all born in Burgh-Le-Marsh.  Jane married Hugh McClister 2 June 1861 at St. Peter-at-Gowts Church.  I have extensive information on my Hildred line dating back to my 7th great-parents John Hildred and Margaret Snowden married 17 Nov 1685 in Manby. Looking to share info and possibly locate connecting descendants.

I am researching the Ablard family from Lincolnshire.  My great-grandfather was William John Henry Ablard, b. 1849 in Lincolnshire, emigrated to Canada with parents, John Barber Ablard and Eleana Louisa Graves about 1855 and from there, homesteaded in Kansas in 1870.  Would love to find out more about Eleana (or Eliza) Graves family.

I am researching the Bruntlett family descended from Edward Bruntlett 1818-1895 from Rothwell, Lincs. My direct ancestor is G Grandfather Thomas Ward Bruntlett born 1846 in Waltham Lincs married Mary Ann Watson born1850 in Little Elkington Lincs. They settled in New Zealand bearing 14 children. i have tried to obtain a book on Waltham via the internet written by a chappy in Waltham who insisted he would only accept cash payment and wouldn't post out of the United Kingdom in the event the book might become I will just have to come over and pick it up just to see the look on his face...Priceless!!!! I would love to know anything more I can about the Bruntlett family in Lincolnshire today.

By the way, I have a World Book published 1978. It's a right handy size. However, I can't find the name Wellingore listed, either as a city, town or county, Is it an old name, not on the maps today? I bet before I'm done iwht all this searching, I'll be so-o-o-o-o smart. But for the time being, where Wellingore?
