This is them in 1871 - I can't see that he would be Elizabeth's son as she would only have been about 12 when she had him. 1871 Elizabeth Hall abt 1862 Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England Daughter St Nicholas Lincolnshire Jane Hall abt 1833 Hemswell, Lincolnshire, England Wife St Nicholas Lincolnshire Joseph Hall abt 1868 Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England Son St Nicholas Lincolnshire William Hall abt 1837 Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England Head St Nicholas

Name: Jane Pinning Year of Registration: 1865 Quarter of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep District: Lincoln County: Lincolnshire Volume: 7a Page: 781 Married William Hall so looks like George is possibly Janes Son??? but then why is his birth reg 7 yrs after they marry? i think you are going to need the cert to be sure on this one K x


Jools Report 9 Jul 2006 11:01

So presumably Jane Pinning married William Hall - but it must have been her second marriage. As George Herbert is a pinning, perhaps he was john pinning's son?


Kath Report 9 Jul 2006 11:04

i was looking for Halls when i came accross Jane Pinning i just put in 1st name and yr or birth 1833 +/- 2 yrs and hems* for place of birth and it threw up Jane Pinning un married, John is her brother perhaps georgge herbert is the illigitame son of a sister or neice and she and william hall has taken him on as her own...have you looked for george herbert hall marriages/deaths or ob census?

Thankyou so much everyone, I will order the birth cert, to get the juicy details!! Thanks again. x


Kath Report 9 Jul 2006 11:13

I reckon that George is the son of Mary Pinning ,she would have been 17 at the time of his birth... let us know what the cert says plz :o) i think possibly that Mary Pinning is the illigit daughter of Jane ? According to IGI Jane Pinning christened 25 NOV 1831 Hemswell, Lincoln Richard Pinning Christening: 06 OCT 1822 Hemswell, Lincoln, Robert Pinning Christening: 31 OCT 1819 Hemswell, Lincoln Charles Pinning Christening 24 JUN 1827 Hemswell, Lincoln Sarah Pinning Christening: 02 SEP 1829 Hemswell, Lincoln Parents Edward Pinning and Sarah

HI All..
Not sure if this is still active.. but George Herbert was my grandmothers brother. By the looks George H was living with Jane at the time of Mary's married life with John Stephenson began. Mary & John have one daughter, Lily - my grandmother.
John died circa 1882/3.. At some point Mary Pinning remarried a Smith and in 1884 travelled to Queensland as a 'remittance' passenger (someone in Qld paid for her trip out). Mary embarks on the 11 NOV 1884 with just the children, all travelling under the name of Smith. The husband is already in QLD??
Mary returns to the UK by 1901 (census) and lives with her mother Jane and lives in Kesteven St, Lincoln. Lily & my dad visit her in 1932.. I think she passed not too long after that.. I have photo's of the visit.
George Herbert passed away in Rockhampton in 1963... I hope this helped ...
