Graham, Linda Hodgkiss worked in the Archives at Lincoln. I understand she has now left. The basis of the talk was a very large intertwined tree in central Lincolnshire in the mid 19th century, Dawson being only one of many surnames involved.

Thank you I have explained this to Lincoln Archives - they gave me a contact e-mail but alas it does not work.  The archives assistant thought it was something she had done herself in private research.  It is a shame the person I contacted did not enquire more thoroughly from other member of staff unless they are all new from 4 years ago!  [I worked for 12 years in a County Record Office so I know how things can change] though not the records of course.
Will let you know if I strike gold.  They wanted a reference for the document of course.

Graham, It is possible that this work was done in her dinner hour etc. As it was subsequentlly presented at a public lecture I think it unlikely it was a private commission.

At least he's got 2 now! No doubt he'll tell us which one works!
Lincolnshire_Archive seems to be the link that worked for e-mail folks.

My husband's tree has Dawsons from Tilbrook in Bedfordshire, one of which is a William Samuel Dawson (b1859) married to Emily Hillson in 1887.  The children we have are Herbert Samuel (m Lizzie Clarke) and Maud Emily b 1890.  Is there any link to them?

Hi Mareanna, I have checked my Dawson data base, and have no trace of either William Samuel or Herbert Samuel Dawson.A common surname used as a forename by my Dawsons was Cartwright, having 5 instances of the name as either a first or second Christian name. My Dawsons lived in the Mablethorpe and Wainfleet areas of Lincolnshire, but this is not to say that there is no connection, just that I don't have it. Some other researcher might well be able to give you a link; however, as you will be aware Dawson is a common surname, the website of the Office of National Statistics states that there were 45762 Dawsons in England and Wales in 2002, and that it is the 128th most frequent surname in the country. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that.  It always pays to ask, every now and then we make a big breakthrough.
Slightly off-beat, my mother had Dawson as a middle name, family talk is that it was in recognition of a person with that name helping her father during the first world war (when he was a prisoner of war).

Hi Dunholm, and welcome to the club! As you will know there are a lot of Dawson's in Lincolnshire. Whether they are all connected is another matter. Though I originate in Boston, I have never heard of Fismore End, I googled it and found the only ref in Ludlow Shrops.Do you, or any other Roots chatter have any further info on it please?
