I've just read your update to the posting. I'd never heard of George Pickingill, but have just read an interesting article about him after doing a google. I grew up not far from Canewdon, and the story always was that the Church was haunted, and not to go there at Halloween. Always thought it was an old wives tale  ;)

I've found the following site http://www.studygroup.org.uk which makes interesting reading. The Royal Epping Forest Gipsy Encampment at the
International Exhibition, Liverpool. 1886

i to have many family members buried at eastwood church.
its worth knowing also that the some of the ''webbs''changed their name to bibby/biby back in early 1900's so you may want to look under that name as well.
the phone book may be of help as there are still alot of bibbys in this area.

happy hunting
amanda

hi, just wondered if you know more about the name change.  i heard that one of the webb brothers change his name to bibby, for what reason, do you know??
cheers

This usually happens when a woman with kids remarries. The kids then often take their step-father's surname. Sometimes they revert to their original surname in later life.

The unexplained death of Walter Bibby, Hawker of Beacontree Heath was reported in several newspapers in January 1893 ("Mysterious Affair at Romford"). The victims age wasn't given but

FreeBMD Death - Walter Bibby, age 39, Romford, Mar Qtr, 1893, 4a 196

The closest in age I can find on the 1891 Census is a Walter Bibby, age 35, Hawker - see RG12  1273  126  5. The information recorded against Walter and others in the household "is somewhat lacking".

On the 1891 Census there is Bibby circus family at RG12  1381  80  58
