Hi Mike, are you still looking to help people? My Grandmother was Elizabeth Jordan, born 1827 who wed John smith in Leicester. I know that they once lived in Orchard street, and that John once lived in Earl Shilton, but I know nothing about her parents, where she was born or when she died. It would be lovely if you could help. Eileen.

Hi Mike, Sorry, I misunderstood - not being a local!! Looks like a trip up to Leicester may still be on the cards then. A very generous member has offered look-ups at the FRC on Saturday, of this week. So have asked him if he could possibly check 1841 Arnold for me for William & Mary! I'm sure this is where they're going to be. Have been doing a bit more digging around - seems the Noons, being in Leicestershire, may have only been a passing phase! Have found what I think is William Noon & Mary (nee Orringe) back in Loughborough, Leics in 1871. William's place of birth is Arnold, Notts. Mary is born Shepshed. So perhaps they were from Notts after all! Although all their children were born in Shepshed, I think they then moved back to Arnold, for a while at least. Debbie

Just found this: AQUILA Gender: Masculine Usage: Biblical, Ancient Roman Pronounced: a-KWIL-a, AK-wil-a [key] Extra Info: From a Roman cognomen which meant "eagle" in Latin. In Acts in the New Testament Paul lived with Aquila and his wife Priscilla (or Prisca) for a time. Was Priscilla the mother or wife? That sounds like MY Hincks!! Goodnight folks, am shuffling off to bed, after causing mahem on here tonight! Hee hee, :-)) Sarah

Beverley....." You rang M' Lady " ....lol :0))) According to the Birth Index Files on 1837 site. August Quarter 1843. (A)UCQUILLA WILLIAM HINCKS. Cert Number :- XV 41. But on the scanned Census 1841. It states William Son. 5. So did they drop the 1st name or maybe the enumerator couldn't spell it ? ... Which ever way I think it's the same rel. MIKE.

No Beverly, I can find no sign of a connection (yet!). I just want to be, so I can say my Hincks had a servant!! Sorry for the confusion, it seems to be a family trait of mine to confuse people!! Mike hasn't been the same since I asked him to do my Barwell lookups, you see, he had to go on Prozac now! Sarah

Aside from the fact they were from the worst street in Hinckley, and after retiring from boxing, owned a dodgy pub where illegal fights were held, he wasnt a bad man I'm sure! AND he moved to .............. LONDON (Whoargh!!) :-) Sarah
