That is Jacky Clark's website.

She has used indexes etc published by Lincs FHS and all the usual sources to construct a huge tree of connections.

If she hasn't named his parents, it's because there are no obvious candidates around.  I doubt she will have any direct connection to AC. She used to post here, but I don't think she has for a while.

She also has a Facebook page called Lincolnshire and Fenland families.
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

Not much help,but interesting to note that highwayman Dick Turpin was hanged for the theft of two horses from a farmer named Creasey (check spelling) at Heckington.
