THE INKLEY FAMILY

Of Swineshead, Gosberton, Pinchbeck, and Surfleet, Lincolnshire

The name Inkley is a corrupt spelling of the place-name Hinckley, a parish in Warwickshire but lying partly in Leicestershire. Since the eighteenth century the name has been common in the Lincolnshire towns named in the title, which are in fact almost the only places in the county where it has persisted to the present. There was also at one time a farmhouse belonging to an Inkley family in the hamlet of Throckenholl, about 1½ miles south-east of Gedney Hill Chapel.

The following material builds upon the work of the late Mary Rebecca (Inkley) Hafen (1866-1936), of Salt Lake City, Utah. It owes even more to the extensive researches of Beth (Inkley) Memmott, of Omaha, Nebraska, who began a systematic investigation of the Inkley name in the parish registers of the area many years ago. Her extracts from these records submitted to the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU) under the name of her father, Mr. Edwin C. Inkley, were what first alerted me to her work. In the interests of conserving space I have usually not cited these extracts in the present notes, as in most cases I have since checked them against the original records; and thus my debt to Mrs. Memmott is really greater than what is apparent here. Material received directly from Mrs. Memmott, and not covered by the GSU’s extraction program or personally verified by me, has been credited to her (I hope sufficiently) in the endnotes.

Thanks are also due to the following Inkley descendants:

  • Dennis Morland Inkley, of Donington, Lincolnshire, for information on his branch of the family
  • Dick Howard, of Geauga County, Ohio, for information on the descendants of James Inkley, who may or may not have been of this family (see the entry for him following the main text)

Several professional genealogists or persons working on behalf of Inkley descendants also supplied material for these notes:

  • Pat Pomeroy, of Fishtoft, Lincolnshire, who supplied a transcription of the tombstone of Edward Inkley (1871-1844) and his family.
  • L. Rippin, who sent extracts from a number of documents
  • John Orange, who transcribed many Inkley entries from the 1881 census long before it was available in the transcript by the Mormons’ Family History Society
  • Liz Reading, of Northamptonshire, who sent material on the family of Rhoda (Inkley) Lenton
  • Michael Edgoose, who supplied material on the family of Rebecca (Barnes) Inkley

All Inkley entries in the parish register of Gosberton, Lincolnshire are incorporated somewhere in the present notes, if only in the list of Unplaced Persons at the end. All extracts are from original registers, not bishops’ transcripts, unless otherwise stated. All dates before 2 September 1752 are Old Style, and have not been converted.


1. William1 Hincley, of Swineshead, of unknown parentage, was born say 1710, and died (apparently intestate) shortly before 5 May 1754, when he was buried in Swineshead churchyard. Beth (Inkley) Memmott discovered a William Inkley baptized 14 May 1702 in the parish church of Wigtoft, Lincolnshire, son of Peter and Alice (Hall) Inkley, but we are unable to say whether this is the same person. William Hincley of Swineshead married (1) 18 May 1735, Mary Thornhill, died shortly before 9 May 1744, when she was buried in Swineshead churchyard. He married (2) (as her first husband) 2 February 1746[/7], in Swineshead parish church, following publication of banns, Elizabeth Moore, baptized 7 May 1723 in Swineshead parish church, died shortly before 13 October 1762, when she was buried in Swineshead churchyard,[1] having married (2) in 1754, Thomas Audis; daughter of Luke and Mary (Perkins) Moore, of Swineshead (see our forthcoming MOORE notes). At the time of his first mariage he and his wife were both of Swineshead, and likewise with his second marriage. In his burial record his surname is spelt Inckley, showing the loss of the initial H which would occur in the next generation with his son Edward. No will or administration bond for him or for either of his wives has been found. After Elisabeth (Moore) Hincley’s death in 1762, it seems that those of her children who were still alive must have been raised by her second husband, Thomas Audis (who moved to Moulton some time after 1763); for besides naming in his will his own children by Elizabeth, he leaves £10 to her son Edward Inkley. Children, so far as known (all baptized in Swineshead parish church)

(by first wife:)

  1. William Hincley, baptized 26 December 1735, of whom no further record has been found.
  2. Mary Hincley, baptized 30 March 1739[/40], buried 9 May 1748 in Swineshead churchyard.

(by second wife:)

  1. Sarah Hincley, baptized 8 May. 1747, buried 29 August 1747 in Swineshead churchyard. Her mother is erroneously called Mary in the baptismal record, but is correctly called Elisabeth in the burial record.
  2. Mary Hincley, baptized 9 May 1748 in Swineshead parish church, of whom no further record has been found.
  3. John Hincley, baptized 14 April 1749, of whom no further record has been found.
  4. 2Edward Hincley, baptized (as “Edmund”) 15 July 1753.

2. Edward2 Inkley, of Gosberton, son of William and Elizabeth (Moore) Hincley, of Swineshead (see section I above), was baptized 15 July 1753 in Swineshead parish church, and died (apparently intestate, aged 49 years) shortly before 3 April 1802, when he was buried in Gosberton churchyard (where no tombstone for him survives). He is called Edmund in the record of his baptism, but it is clear from subsequent records that his name was really Edward. The two names were frequently confused at the time. As mentioned above, he was probably brought up, possibly at Moulton, by his stepfather, Thomas Audis, in whose will he is named. He married 26 February 1781 in the parish church of Pinchbeck, Lincolnshire, Ann Fountain, baptized 8 April 1763 in Gosberton parish church, died shortly before 28 October 1820, when she was buried in Gosberton churchyard (where no tombstone survives); daughter of Robert and Ann (____) (Middlebrook) Fountain, of Gosberton, Lincolnshire (see our forthcoming FOUNTAIN notes). Even though Edward Inkley was married at Pinchbeck, he may not have been living there, as his eldest child, born less than two weeks later, was baptized at Gosberton. He and his wife became Congregationalists, and although living at Gosberton were attending Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck, where they were first received at the quarterly meeting of 30 May 1788. Their younger children were all baptized in this chapel, but their marriages took place in Anglican churches as non-conformist chapels were not allowed to perform marriages at this time. In 1790 Edward and Ann Inkley were granted letters of administration for the estate of her sister, Loetitia Fountain, in which he is called a farmer, of Gosberton, and makes a mark in lieu of a signature. A George Brown of Pinchbeck was bound with them. Ann (Fountain) Inkley is called “from Surfleet” in the Gosberton burial register, so had apparently been living there for some time before her death, perhaps with her son Robert. No will has been found for either of them in the years 1802 onward. Known issue:

  1. 3Edward Inkley, Jr., baptized 11 March 1781 in Gosberton parish church.
  2. William Inkley, died apparently unbaptized, and buried 8 July 1783 in Gosberton churchyard.
  3. William Inkley, died apparently unbaptized, and buried 2 April 1784 in Gosberton churchyard.
  4. Elisabeth Inkley, baptized 13 May 1785 in Gosberton parish church, living 1824. She married 28 June 1819 in Pinchbeck parish church, John Rylot, living 1824, possibly the son of this name born to John and Mary (____) Rylett, of Swineshead, and baptized there 20 April 1787. John Rylot is called a laborer, of Surfleet Fen, in the baptismal records of all his known children (1820-24). He is called a laborer in the marriage records of his sons George and William (1846, 1851). Although in the account of their descendants which follows some of the persons are marked with question marks for want of conclusive evidence as to their parentage, most of the affiliations suggested are probably correct, as there does not seem to have been any other contemporary Rylot(t) family of the area with which the present one could have been confused. Known issue:
    1. William Rylot(t), baptized 13 August 1820 in Surfleet parish church, died shortly before 7 January 1865, when he was buried in Surfleet churchyard. He married 13 November 1851 in Gosberton parish church, following publication of banns, Monica Burnett, born by 1830, daughter of Thomas Burnett, a laborer. At the time of their marriage both were of Gosberton, and he was a laborer; he was able to sign his name in the register but she made a mark instead. The witnesses were a William Ladd and a Jemima Twelves. In the baptismal records of his son Samuel (1852) and daughter Frances (1855) he is called a cottager, of Gosberton Fen, while in that of his daughter Elizabeth (1857) he is called a cottager, of Gosberton Risegate, and in that of his daughter Mary (1860) a laborer, of Surfleet. His address is given as Risegate, Surfleet, in his burial record. He is posthumously called a cottager in the marriage record of his son Samuel (1871). Known issue:
      1. Samuel Rylott, baptized 28 May 1852 in Gosberton parish church, living 1895.

At the time of their marriage both were of Surfleet, and he (who was then underage) was a shoemaker; both were able to sign their names in the register. The witnesses were a Frances Rylott, and another person whose name is practically illegible. In the joint baptismal record of his daughters Frances and Ida (1874) he is called a laborer, of Gosberton. In that of children 3-6 (1880) and 8 & 9 (1887) he is called a cordwainer (i.e. shoemaker), of Gosberton, and in that of 10-12 (1895) a shoemaker. In 1881 he was a witness at the marriage of his sister Elisabeth. He, is called a shoemaker in the marriage records of his children Rose and Albert (both 1905), a post-master in that of his daughter Florence (1906), and a boot-maker in that of his son Arthur (1915). At the time of his wife’s death she was residing in Salem Street, Gosberton. Samuel Rylott was extremely lax in baptizing his children, having them all done in groups in some cases many years after their births, the dates of which cannot be estimated for most of the first eight children as their ages are not given in the records.

He married 13 January 1873 in Surfleet parish church, following publication of banns, Ann Bristow, born by 1852, said in her marriage record to have been a daughter of William Green (sic), laborer. His marriage record calls him a son of “George Rylott, labourer.” At the time of his marriage he and his wife were both of Surfleet, and he (who was then underage) was a laborer; both were able to sign their names, but his wife only with extreme difficulty. The witnesses were a Samuel Graves, and Sarah Ann Rylott (whose signature matches that of the Sarah Ann Rylott shown immediately below). The marriage record makes his wife a spinster, so it is unclear how she could have had a different surname from that of her father. Only known child:
        1. Eliza Rylott, born 1884-85. She married 18 February 1907 in Gosberton parish church, following publication of banns, Frederick Chapman Jr., born 1872-73, son of Frederick Chapman, a cottager.

She married 19 June 1873 in Surfleet parish church, following publication of banns, Saul Graves, born by 1852, son of James Graves, a wheelwright. Her marriage record calls her a daughter of “George Rylott, cottager.” At the time of her marriage she and her husband were both of Surfleet, and he was a laborer; both were able to sign their names in the register, and her signature is that of the Sarah Ann Rylott who five months earlier had witnessed the marriage of Charles Rylott, immediately above. The witnesses were a Thomas Harper and a Mary Ann Leverton.
      5. (probably) John Thomas Rylott, born 1858-59, living 1902. He married 26 November 1891 in Surfleet parish church, Ann Moore, born 1865-63, daughter of Thomas Moore, a laborer. His marriage record calls him a son of “George Rylott, labourer.” At the time of his marriage he and his wife were both of Surfleet, and he was a farmer; both were able to sign their names in the register, and his signature matches that of the John Thomas Rylatt who was a witness to the marriage of Mary Ann, daughter of Timothy Inkley, in 1891. The witnesses were William Moore, Charlotte Moore, Joseph Moore, Luke Rylott, Elizabeth Ruth Willcock, and Laurina Lord. In the baptismal record of his three eldest children he is called a farmer, of Surfleet Risegate. In that of his fourth and fifth children (1902) he is called a farmer, of Gosberton. Known issue (all baptisms in Gosberton parish church):
        1. “Elija” [i.e. Eliza?] Rylott (gender not stated), born 28 April 1892, baptized 30 December 1896.
        2. Mabel Rylott, born 28 August 1894, baptized 20 December 1896.
        3. John Thomas Rylott, Jr., born 8 August 1896, baptized 20 December following.
        4. George Cecil Rylott, born 18 December 1900, baptized 2 November 1902.
        5. Cornelius Rylott, born 23 March 1902, baptized 2 November 1902.
    3. Fanny Rylot, baptized 30 May 1824 in Surfleet parish church.

Her marriage record calls her father “John Rylatt, labourer.” At the time of her marriage, she and her husband were both were of Gosberton; she was a servant and he a laborer. Neither was able to sign their name in the register, and had to make a mark instead. The witnesses were a John Bowley Jr. and an Elisabeth Lusely (?). William Bowley is called a laborer, of Gosberton, in the baptismal records of their children (1848-1852). Known issue (all baptisms in Gosberton parish church):
      1. John Bowley, baptized 10 June 1848.
      2. “Betsy” Bowley, baptized 24 April 1850.
      3. Anne Bowley, baptized 13 June 1852.
    5. (probably) John Rylat, born by 1828. He married 17 May 1849 in Surfleet parish church (whether by banns or by licence not being stated), Ann Smith, born 1825-26 at Gosberton, daughter of Thomas Smith, a farmer. The evidence that he was a son of John and Elizabeth (Inkley) Rylat is that his father is called “John Rylot, farmer” in his marriage certificate, and that the marriage was witnessed by their known son William. At the time of the marriage John Rylat and his wife were both of Surfleet, and he was a laborer; both were able to sign their names in the register. The witnesses were the said William Rylott (whose signature proves his identity) and a Susan Smith. In 1851 Ann (Smith) Rylot was living in Risegate Road, Surfleet, next door to her husband’s presumed brother, George Rylot, and is called a “rail-road labourer’s wife,” her husband being temporarily absent.[3] Living with her were her (illegitimate) daughter Eliza Smith, aged 5, and her son William Rylot. Only known child:
      1. William Rylot, born in 1849-50 at Surfleet.
  5. John Inkley, baptized 14 July 1786 in Gosberton parish church, buried 15 November 1793 in Gosberton churchyard. [BT]
  6. Ann Inkley, died apparently unbaptized, and buried 18 March 1788 in Gosberton churchyard. [BT]

  10. Isaac Inkley, born at Gosberton, baptized 29 February 1796 in Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck, living 1881. He married by 1828, and possibly by 1824, Mary ____. In the baptismal record of his son Isaac (1828) he is called a laborer, of Surfleet Cheel. He and his wife had apparently separated by 1851, when he is found as a married man, but without her, working as a servant (agricultural laborer) to Robert Willcock, proprietor of “The Ship,” a beerhouse on Hammond Beck Bank, Surfleet. By 1881 he had became destitute, and was an inmate of the Pinchbeck Road Workhouse, Spalding. Known issue:
    1. (possibly) Frances Inkley, baptized 10 June 1824 in the parish church of Pickworth, near Falkingham, Lincolnshire, as a daughter of Isaac and Mary Inkley.[4]
    2. Isaac Inkley, Jr., baptized 3 August 1828 in Surfleet parish church.
  11. Mary Inkley, baptized 3 June 1798 in Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck;16 died 4 May 1838 at Wisbech St. Peter, Cambridgeshire, of a “strangulated umbilical hernia.” She married (his first wife ) 1 January 1821 in the parish church of Holbeach, Lincolnshire, George Flint, Jr., baptized 2 May 1801 in Holbeach parish church, died (intestate) 26 December 1891, aged 91 years, at Wisbech, of “natural decay,”[43,47] having married (2) Mary Ann (Etherington) Marwich, and (3) Mary (Mackinder) Shaw. He was a son of George and Elizabeth (Lee) Flint, of Holbeach. See the FLINT page for their issue:
  12. Sarah Inkley, baptized 11 May 1800 in Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck, of whom no further record has been found.
  13. 7Joseph Inkley, born 1802 at Gosberton, baptized 4 April 1802 in Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck.

3. Edward3 Inkley, Jr., of Gosberton, eldest son of Edward and Ann (Fountain) Inkley, of the same place, was born 1780-81, baptized 11 March 1781 in Gosberton parish church, died (testate) 14 January 1844, aged 63 years, and was buried 17 Jan. following in Gosberton churchyard, where a tombstone survives.[5] He married 9 May 1813 in Spalding parish church, Alice Parkinson, born 1792-93 at Spalding, died 11 January 1872, aged 79 or 80 years, and buried 17 Jan. following beside her husband; despite our failure to find a baptismal record for her, considering the names she bestowed on her own children, she was obviously a daughter of Clison and Alice (Barnes) Parkinson, of Spalding.[6] Edward Inkley and his wife, like his parents, were Congregationalists, and became members of Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck, by 1814, when their first child was baptized there; they left in or shortly after 1822.” He is called a grazier in a directory of 1826. [White, 1826] He is called a laborer in the probate papers attached to the registered copy of his will, which he dictated 25 June 1841, and which was proved 11 June 1844 by his widow; and he is posthumously called a cottager in the marriage record of his son Barnes (1859) and in the adult baptismal record of his daughter Hephzibah (1862). It is clear from his will that he lived at Gosberton Cheal, a small hamlet two miles south-west of the town of Gosberton. He left to his widow one acre and 18 perches of land with “messuage and tenement … in a place called the Cheal” in the parish of Gosberton, to be inherited after her death by his children in equal shares. He made his wife executrix, and appointed James Calthrap and John Hare of Gosberton guardians of his children in the event of his widow’s decease, until they reached the age of sixteen. The witnesses were John Robinson, Thomas Robinson, and William Robinson. On his death his estate was valued at just under £50. In 1851 his widow was living at Saltfleet Lane, Gosberton, where she was the freeholder of one acre, and she is called a cottager in the 1861 Census of Gosberton, in which she appears with their daughter Hephzibah. Known issue (the three unnamed infants who are buried with them” being perhaps their first, second, and sixth children):

  1. Clison Parkinson Inkley, baptized 1 May 1814 in Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck, buried 28 June 1814 in Gosberton churchyard.

He married (as her second husband) 22 February 1813 in Pinchbeck parish church, Mary (Green) Wardell, living 1827, widow of Matthew Wardell,[11] and daughter of George and Elizabeth Green. She was probably the Mary Inkley, widow, who married 1830 at Gosberton, John Picker, widower. William Inkley was a farmer, of Surfleet, from 1814 to 1822, when his children were born there? and his address is given as Stockhouse Lane in the baptismal records of his children Elizabeth and William (1816, 1822), and as Cheal Road in that of another daughter Elizabeth (1820). In 1818, although he was then living at Surfleet, he had his daughter Elizabeth buried in Gosberton churchyard. He calls himself “of Gosberton” in his will, which is dated 25 January 1827 and was proved 10 July following. In it he names as executors Mr. Benjamin Crosby, Gentleman, and his brother Robert Inkley, and left everything to them to administer for his four surviving children and for his wife, provided she did not remarry, with everything to be sold after her death and the proceeds divided among the children. He also provided that “her three children by a former husband may remain with her till decently brought up, or disposed of as my Trust shall see fit and right.” The witnesses were his mother’s half-brother, John Orange Fountain, and a Thomas Lawrence.

They were rebaptized as Mormons on 23 November 1848 and some time before June 1856, respectively. Her husband was made a priest in June 1856, but was subsequently “cut off” for some unstated offence.

By 1861 they had moved to Sheep Market, Spalding, and he was employing two men and two boys in his business, as well as his wife’s first cousin once removed, Sarah Warren, as a house servant. They do not appear in the 1881 census of Spalding. Known issue:

They were enumerated at no. 5 St. Mary Street, Stamford St. Mary, Lincolnshire, in the 1881 census, in which he is called a “butcher employing 1 boy”; their household included a butcher’s apprentice and a general servant.[15] They were enumerated at the same address in 1891, when Mark Hurn is called a butcher.[16] The widowed Kate, inexplicably called “Lydia Hurn,” appears again at no. 5 St. Mary’s Street in the 1901 census of Stamford St. Mary, in which she is called a butcher, having presumably taken over her husband’s business.[17] Known issue (all born at Stamford):
      1. Mary Lizzie Hurn, born 1873-74 (aged 7 in 1881, 17 in 1891), living 1901. She was still living with her parents in 1891, when she was a butcher’s assistant.

Durham, where they were enumerated as visitors at no. 25 Arncliffe Gardens, John being called a marine engine fitter and Mary’s name being given as “Marly.”[19] No children are shown with them at the time.
      2. Kate Hurn, born 1875-76 (aged 5 in 1881), living with her parents in 1881 but not in 1891, so presumably died young.
      3. Thomas J. Hurn, born 1876-77 (aged 4 in 1881, 14 in 1891), living with his parents in 1891, when he was a butcher’s assistant in 1891, but not living with his widowed mother in 1901.
      4. Mark Hurn, Jr., born 1878-79 (aged 2 in 1881, 12 in 1891, 22 in 1901), living unmarried with his widowed mother in 1901, when he was a butcher’s assistant; he is called “Matthew” in 1901.
      5. Florence M. Hurn, born in 1880 (aged 11 months in 1881, 10 years in 1891), living with her parents in 1891, but not living with her widowed mother in 1901. We have not found a plausible marriage record for her in the FreeBMD index.
      6. Maud M. Hurn, born 1881-82 (aged 9 in 1891).
      7. Grace Margaret Hurn, born 1883-84 (aged 7 in 1891), living unmarried with her mother in 1901, when she was a draper’s assistant.

She married in 1877 in the Spalding registration district,[21] John C. Clutterbuck, born 1857-58 (aged 23 in 1881, 43 in 1901) at St. Paul’s, Bedfordshire (per 1881 census) or at St. Pancras, Bedfordshire (per 1901 census), living 1901. At the taking of the 1881 census, which calls him a journeyman butcher, they were living at 16 New Chesterfield St., London, and her widowed mother was a member of their household; there were no children.[22] They were enumerated at Finchley, Middlesex, in the 1901 census, in which he is called a “butchers’ manager”; at which time his nephew and niece, Charles E. Ward (aged 18) and Caroline Ward (aged 17), were members of their household, and again there were no children.[23]
    3. Harriet Inkley, baptized 12 August 1857 in Spalding parish church, died by 1861, as she does not appear with her parents in the census of that year.
    4. Thomas Inkley (III), born 1857-58 at Spalding, died in 1883 in the Spalding registration district (although the age at death of 27 years given in the record is slightly too high).[24] He was a student in 1861, and was still living unmarried with his parens in 1871, when he was a butcher like his father. He married (as her first husband) by 1880, Margaret A. ____, born 1860-61 (aged 30 in 1891, 40 in 1901) at March, Cambridgeshire, living 1901. In 1881 he was a master butcher employing one man and three boys, and was living at no. 33 Hall Street, Spalding (which had previously been his parents’ home).[25] In 1891 his widow, who was by 1890 remarried to William E. Benner, a butcher, is found with him, the two children of her first marriage, and their son William E. (aged 1), at Hall Place, Spalding.[26] In 1901 this man — now called William S. Benner — was a farmer, of no. 32 Pinchbeck Street, Spalding, and of the Inkley children only Thomas was still part of the household; there were five Benner children: William E. (11), Margaret F. (9), Jane S. (7), James (3), Redvers J. (1 month).[27]
           Known issue:
      1. Grace Mary Inkley, born 1880 at Spalding, living 1901. She was still living unmarried with her mother in 1891. She married in late 1899 or early 1900 in the Spalding registration district,[28] Henry Hildred, born 1876-77 (aged 24 in 1901) at Burgh, Lincolnshire, living 1901. By the taking of the 1901 census they had already removed to Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, where they were enumerated at no. 61 Wilford Road, Henry being called a butcher.[29] They did not then have any children.
      2. Thomas Inkley (IV), born 1882-83 (aged 8 in 1891, 18 in 1901) at Spalding, still living unmarried with his mother in 1901; his occupation as given in the census of that year is completely unintelligible.
    5. Sarah Emma Inkley, born 1859-60 at Spalding, died probably in 1884-89, and certainly in 1881-91. She is found in her parents’s household in 1871. She seems very likely to have been the Sarah Emma Ward, aged 26 years, whose death was registered in the April-June quarter of 1885 in the Marylebone district, London, but we have not checked the record.[30] She married (as his first wife) in 1879 in the Spalding registration district,[31] Charles Ward, born about 1856-57 (aged 25 in 1881, 33 in 1891, 44 in 1901) at Ashton, Northamptonshire, living 1901. They were enumerated at no. 13, St. Mary’s Hill, Stamford St. Mary, Lincolnshire, in the 1881 census, in which Charles is called a master butcher, his birthplace is gives as “Ashton” (no county stated), and at which time their household included his sister Martha, “cousin” Elizabeth Darling, a butcher’s apprentice, and a general domestic servant.[32] Charles Ward married (2) certainly by 1891, and probably by 1890, Charlotte ____, born about 1863 (aged 27 in 1891, 38 in 1901) at Bloomsbury, London. He appears with his second wife, his son Thomas by his first wife, and his younger sons Charles (aged 9, and thus probably by first wife) and Sidney (aged only 1, and thus almost certainly by second) at no. 36 Molyneux Street in the 1891 census of St. Marylebone, London, in which he is called a cab (i.e. carriage) driver.[33] He appears at no. 17 Green Street in the 1901 census of Paddington, St. Mary, with his second wife, and five children all born after 1892 who must have been by his second marriage; he is again called a cab driver.[34]

His address is given as Bird’s Drove in the burial records of his children Robert, Ann, and Jane, who all died within a month of one another in 1832, as well as in his own burial record. In 1851 he was a farmer with a freehold of 16 acres at Bird’s Drove, and he was still there in 1861 with his son Edward and daughter Ann. Known issue:

7. Joseph3 Inkley, of Spalding and Gosberton, son of Edward and Ann (Fountain) Inkley, of Gosberton, was born 1802 at Gosberton, baptized 4 April 1802 in Money Bridge Lane Independent Chapel, Pinchbeck, and died shortly before 1 February 1862, when he was buried in Goisberton churchyard. Joseph Inkley must be distinguished from a contemporary but probably unrelated Joseph Inkley (1796-?), originally from Market Deeping, who for some time lived at Gosberton, where one of his children was born. The present man married 15 February 1829 in Gedney parish church, by license [but the license appears to be lost], Ann Smith, born 1803-05, daughter of William and Sarah (____) Smith, of Rippingale, Lincolnshire, baptized 14 July 1805 in Rippingale parish church, living 1861. She was probably (despite the discrepancy in age) the Ann Inkley who died (aged, it is said, 76 years) shortly before 15 August 1877, when she was buried in Gosberton churchyard. At the time of their marriage he was a bachelor, of ____, and his wife was a spinster, of Gedney; they were both able to sign their names in the marriage register, Joseph Inkley was a blacksmith.

He and his wife had become members of the Morman chapel at Risegate by 14 October 1848, when they had their son William baptized there.[S3] There is however no evidence that, they were members after November of that year. Their address is given as Risegate in the baptismal record of their daughter Ann (1849), and they were living on Risegate Road, Gosberton, in 1851,[S4] when he was a master blacksmith employing one man. He is also listed at Risegate in an 1856 directory. in 1861 they were living at Gosberton Clough, Risegate. He was a witness at the marriages of his daughter Eliza (1857), his son Timothy (1864), and his daughter Georgina (1867). Known issue:
