William INCKLE - the farmer
« on: Friday 10 April 09 18:49 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone.

William INCKLE (a brother of my GGG Grandfather) was a "farmer of 40 acres" (according to 1881 census).

His father as far as I can ascertain was a labourer during his lifetime, so I wondered how William managed to get himself such a snazzy job?

Here's what I know about William :-

  Born 21 Sep 1838, baptised 3 Aug 1845, in Cottingham, Northants (from transcribed parish records) I can't find him on FreeBMD.

  Married Ellen PEACOCK 1859 Lincoln

  I found him in the 1881 census as a farmer of 40 acres in Fiskerton, Lincolnshire

  I also have a likely death for him from FreeBMD in 1915, Lincoln (which lists him as 77, which ties in perfectly with his DOB).

So what I would like help with, is how would he have been likely to get such a job as a farmer? His parents certainly had little money as far as I can see. Could it have something to do with his marriage? Would he have owned the land or rented it? Is there any way of finding this out?

I hope someone can point me in the right direction, many thanks  ;D

Hi Filiem,

Just to start the ball rolling for you, according to the 1861 census William was an Ag Lab in Fiskerton .. would you like this information .. ?

Added.. and in 1871 he was listed as a Carter .. !

Kind regards,

Pels.

Hello there, and thanks Pels and Heywood for the information, I don't have full A***Y access at the moment (until payday  ;D) so I didn't know that...

The Ag lab fits in with everything as that's what most of the family did back in Northants, (and I suppose a carter is the next step up?) I just found it odd how he ends up with a whole farm!

Thanks again, that's fantastic  :)

I'm now wondering what Ellen's parents did for a living, I see she born in Fiskerton .. ?

Do you have any of her details, or is it worth us having a look Filiem ?

Here's 1871 - reference earlier

interesting perhaps.. address is Five Mile House (think that's similar to 1881) but there are a few households under this

Henry Peacock head married 67 yrs Wool dealer b Yorks Hull
Ellen Peacock  wife 55 yrs wool dealer's wife Lincs Newbold

next household
William Inkle 32 yrs Carter Not known
Ellen 30 yrs Lincs Fiskerton
Rosa Ann 10 yrs
Emma 9 yrs
Henry 8 yrs
Joseph 7 yrs
Charles 4 yrs
Ellen Jane 6 months
all children born Fiskerton

It doesn't seem to be farming round about- there's a shepherd next household.
Just to say that the lady who had 'lots of money' according to family legend, had acquired it by nursing two elderly sisters who left her their home and bits and pieces.

Hi again,

No, I haven't looked into the Peacock link yet, I am thinking of ordering the marriage certificate though, I am intrigued to find out where the farm came from! I haven't even looked up a possible birth for Ellen yet, shame on me  ;) I looked at some historic maps of Fiskerton to try and work out where the farm might be, using the census info.

You are most welcome to look into it all if you wish, I am grateful for the help. I am very new to family history and I have become fascinated with it all  :)

ADDED - yes, Five Mile House is the name of the railway station house in Fiskerton, I looked into that, so I am guessing the farm was nearby?)
 Where did that blooming farm come from? Ellen's father was a wool dealer? Wow, thank you for this info, the mystery deepens!

It seems that Five Mile House was railway related- there is a railway clerk living in the previous households.
