Hi again Mike

Hope you can do another look-up for me. Am trying to find the Mother's surname of Mary Merrick who was baptised 2/9/1799 at St. Mary's Hinckley, her parents are given as James and Elizabeth, is it possible you have the means to find Elizabeth's surname? Also the marriage and burials of James & Elizabeth. I think Mary had a brother James born 1793 who possibly married Jane Lambert at St.Mary's can you confirm this?

All the best
Kathleen

Hi Mike

Thank you very much for the info, the Ernest Gibson can't be the right one as he was on the 1911 census aged 7, he's a bit of a mystery really as I didn't know about him until the census came out, think I'll have to ask if someone can check the original transcript to see if it's been transcibed correctly.

Yes as far as I'm aware it is the village of Market Bosworth, would appreciate it if you could check this for me.

Regards
Kathleen
