In 1841 they are in Ripley with children Henry, Hannah and Elizabeth, plus eldest son George (1833) and George is now a publican.

Apprenticed to a relative, you'd think?. Richard & Martha (nee Hicking) Lee are recorded at 8 Lammas Tce, Nottingham, in 1871 with their three children Henry, Annie and George. Richard is working as an engine fitter so perhaps they went there because there was a family connection able to get Richard work. I have this brother George in 1871 as a coach builder in Ripley, with a wife and child, which would fit with his training as a wheelwright.

Arachne that would be the wrong George, you are talking about George "LEE", son of Richard and Martha, and I am talking about George "HICKING", son of George and Mary (possibly Watson) and brother of Martha.

Hi Jo, sorry,to be confusing.  I'm talking about Richard and Martha's son George Reuben Lee, but also about whom I think might be Martha's brother George Hicking, b. abt 1833

I have the latter at Ripley in the Census of Engalnd 1871 Reg district Belper, Sub-reg Ripley.

George Hicking (38) Head of household, Coach Builder, b. Ripley, Derbyshire
Mary Hicking, (35) wife, b. Greenwich, Ripley
George John, son (14), b. Ripley.

However, there do seem to be quite a few George Hickings about so this might just be one possibilty.

Hi,

1851 census George Hicking b 1785.


Sorry but I am looking at the actual census, not a transcript, on Ancestry and he is living
Ripley Derbyshire. The same place as in 1861.


I apologise for occupation error, but I am sure that if you look at the census image for  1851 you
Will find he is in Ripley

Hi Arachne

Perhaps you would like to consider the following as parents of George Hicking b1785:-

John Hicking = Elizabeth Fisher 17 April 1770 at St Lauranvce Heanor DerbyshireI'm
They produced the following children all christened at Heanor

Samuel 28.10.1770, John 6.6.1773,  Thomas 7.6.1778, William 8.9.1782 Ann 18.12.1791
The christening for George is difficult to read but I am quite confident it is him christened
18.1.1785.
It is important to note that all the christening state of Codnor - where George states he was born.

All the above with images of parish register can be seen of familysearch.org.

The quickest way to find George is to search   George He?in

Thanks very much for this , Spendlove. I had looked at John Hicking & Elizabeth Fisher, but couldn't find a George (b 1785) among their children, so good to have it confirmed that he was a member of that family. This church of St Lawrence in Heanor keeps popping up in both Watson and Hicking records too.

Hi,

The Parish Church, for people living in Codnor & Loscoe,  was St. Lawrence Heanor.

The Church of St. James, Codnor was not built until about 1844 so if you lived in C or L
you had to go to Heanor.  Even after 1844 many people from C & L would still go to Heanor.
