Hi Everyone-just joined- Whitchurch is the home of my father`s family-the Kibbles-I have tracrd them back to mid 16th century-some were churchwardens and one of them-Francis who died 1699 has his name carved on the church rafters. My 3 times gr grandfather was Thomas Kibble,born whichurch 1832 and his mother was Ann Rickard,born 1788. Does anyone know of other Kibbles in the village who may be related to Thomas as he left for London in the 1850s. I also have other Rickards on my tree and Toogoods.

Hi Lindsay,

Not sure if you will read this after so long but just to let you know that I am researching the Kibbles too. My ancestor is a Thomas Kibble - although a different one to yours. If I am right, I believes our two men are both cousins.

Interesting fact about the rafters by the way!

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for more on my Welch/Welsh ancestors from Whitchurch. My 5th great-grandfather was James Welch. He was born about 1784. I think this was in Whitchurch. He married Phoebe Cheshire in 1806.

I'm struggling to find his parents. On FindMyPast I found a baptism for a James Welsh, son of Robert and Rachel Welsh. However, I have several DNA matches and have seen several family trees that show Richard Welch and Rachel Durley as his parents. I cannot find any sources to prove this. Unfortunately the baptism record from FindMyPast was just a transcript and no image.

Anyways, hoping there might be some others researching the Welch name :)
