Hello Rory and welcome to RootsChat.

Haven't found a baptism for Samuel yet, but just checking you knew Samuel was a widower when he married Dina. Marriage 16 Nov 1815 - Samuel FRANKS, Gedney, widower m Dina SIMS, Gedney, spinster. Witnesses: William Rowell KENTWALL and Elizabeth HOLT.

Samuel dies before 1828 when Dinah remarries Isaac ALLEN, widower at Gedney 28 April 1828, (Witnesses: William H. KORCHWALL, Azaby GRAY, Henry FLOWER & John VESSEY)

The only suitable burial I can see for Samuel then is 26 April 1827, which has Samuel as aged 61. This would give a year of birth around 1766.

In this case there is this baptism at Gedney 22 Sept 1765, Samuel son of Thomas and Mary FRANK.

(All available on FreeReg.)

Modified to add:
This would also fit with a possible earlier marriage for Samuel to Elizabeth ROLLES, widow of Gedney, at Gedney 17 Dec 1793. Witnesses: James WORLEY and F. FLOWER. Though I can't see a burial for Elizabeth before 1815.

You're welcome Rory.

I found this interesting advertisement in "St. James's Chronicle or the British Evening Post". (November 7, 1772 - November 10, 1772)

"TO be SOLD in Parcels, at the Inn opposite the Church, in Holbeach, in the County of Lincoln, on Wednesday the 2d Day of December next, between the Hours of Two and Five in the Afternoon, subject to such Conditions as shall then be produced,
A FARM at Gedney, near Holbeach, in the Occupation of Thomas Frank, senior; consisting of a very good Farmhouse, with proper Conveniences thereto and about seventy Acres of Arable, Meadow and Pasture Land, in sundry Closes near the same, with Right of Common thereto belonging.
Also one other Farm, lying at Gedney Hill, near Gedney, in the Occupation of John Stranghorn; consisting of a Farmhouse and sundry Closes near the same, containing about 48 Acres.
The Tenants will shew the Premisses, and for further Particulars enquire of Mr. Calisthenes Marshall, of Hunmanby, near Malton, Yorkshire; or of Mr. John Taylor Attorney, in Bridlington."

Note it says "Thomas Frank snr".

A problem though, is that there are 2 Thomas FRANKs baptising children in Gedney around the time of "your" Thomas. The other is married to a Jane. So this article may not be related to your family.  ;)

Well I do know Samuel had a contract for 10 acres of land for mustered growing for Colmanís so it is possible that I could be the same farm  :)
