Parnham/Baxter

I am looking to trace my family that lived in Rippingale and I believe some still do.

I would like information on the Baxter family. I have traced back to Alonzo Baxter born 1848 he was a castrator in the village he was married to Margaret Baxter born 1844. They had 1 daughter called Laura and 2 sons Peter and Cecil Herbert (my dad is named after him). To trace my family tree back even more I would like to know Alonzo and Margaret's parents names. If there is any information you can give me I would appreciate it, eg dates of death and where buried etc.

Sandall/Spencer

I am looking for any help on the above names. My 5 x Great Grandparents Edward Sandall and Mary Spencer both born c1715 in Rippingale married and stayed in Rippingale. As far as I know and can find they went on to have 8 children, Mary(died young), Sarah, Thomas, Elizabeth, Mary, Lucy and Anne. There could be more. Thomas went on to have 7 children Thomas, Ann, Catherine, John, William Sarah and Robert. Anne was my 3x Great Grandmother and she married an Edward Spencer. Do not know if there is any connection to mary Spencer, above.

Edward spencer was born Thurlby in 1794 and thats where they lived. Mary Spencer was born in Rippingale to either Charles or Richard Spencer.There were 2 Marys christened at St Andrews around the same time.

Family history passed down through my family believes that the Sandall and Spencer families were very large in Rippingale and after seeing the IGI website I can believe this

If anyone has any information regarding these 2 families or are descendents please contact me

Dobney

I am researching my Family Tree like a lot of other People. My Maiden name is Dobney.

My Grand Father was Charles Dobney He Died 6/06/1918 Age 51 and a Farm Labourer. He was Married to Anna Morton on 28/09/1897 and they were living at Rippingale Fen when he died. John Dobney was his Father on the Wedding Cert and Clara Rudkin was one of the witnesses, he was 31 when he was Married to Anna and she was 21. They were both residing at Langtoft at the time of their Marriage. His Death Certificate says he Died at Home and his Son Richard(Dick) was Present but no sign of his wife, what happened to my Grandmother i do not know or where and when she died.

My Grandfather had 4 sons, Richard already mentioned Deceased, John Thomas(Jack) Deceased, Edward(Ted) Morton born out of Wedlock Deceased, and my Father Charles(Charlie) Deceased. My Father never mentioned anything of his Family only that his Parents Died when he was young. I am looking desperately for some photo's of My Grandparents as my Father never had anything belonging to his Parents, and more information on my Grandfathers side ; ie if he had any siblings and what kind of person he was. I do know that there are still some Dobney's around Rippingale and hopefully they can recall my Grandparents.

Quincey Family

Myself and a friend in Australia are researching the Quincey family. This is a very old family, we have traced them back to French pre- Norman Conquest. Members of this family also went on the 3rd. and the 5th crusades.

I have been to Rippingale church and have seen the tomb and head stones of past Quincey residents of Rippingale.

We know that there was a strong Quincey tree in the villages of Rippingale, Walcot and Folkingham, but there doesn't appear to be any Quinceys in the present phone book. Do you know of any way that I can make contact with anyone who could help us in the research of this family. We would be happy to share our trees with anyone who is also studying this family.
