John Adkin b 1796 and Loughborough Lanes
« on: Saturday 13 June 20 09:42 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone, Apologies for returning to Adkin genealogy but I would like someone to confirm John Adkin's baptism in Shepshed on 16th Oct 1796 and who his parents were. Also could someone explain why in the 1851 census, his birthplace is given as Loughborough Lanes (not Leics). Where was this and was it part of the ecclesiastical parish of Shepshed?

Many thanks and stay safe.
Lovely weather today but.........

John Atkin son of John and Dorothy baptised on 16 Oct.

Possible marriage, eight miles away - John Atkin and Dorothy Joyce in Lockington, Derbyshire, on 8th November 1775.

Is there a CD of Leicestershire and/or Derbyshire baptisms?

As a confirmation, could you confirm that John and Dorothy had a son Charles baptised in 1809?

I can't see a baptism for Charles in 1809.

On some censuses, he is the brother of John. born 1796, who would seem to be the son of John and Dorothy.
On another, he is the uncle of George who was John's son.

Assuming that the marriage is correct, Dorothy Joyce was baptised in Lockington on 14th May 1754, Which would suggest that she would be too old to be the mother of Charles. Also, the last baptisms were John and Dorothy, both on 16th October 1796.

If the correct Dorothy, her parents were John Joyce and Mary Poxon, who were married in Lockington on 24th July 1743.

There is a death of John Atkin of Shepshed on 19th April 1798, age 57. He may be Dorothy's husband.

Many thanks David. What is also detrimental to building the family tree is the way the surname could change - Adkin, Atkin, Adkins etc etc!

Are are confident you've got all the children of John ATKIN / ADKIN and Dorothy JOYCE?!  I've found 9.

I'm currently working on the POXON's, another challenge!

I've only got six: John Adkin (my ancestor) 1796-1870, John Atkin, Mary Atkin, Elizabeth Atkin, Elizabeth Atkin and Dorothy Atkin. Wish I could get up to the Leicestershire Archives (well, not at the moment, of course)

That's the link for your original post from 5 years ago.  Reply #14 is the 'removal order' and some baptismal info that diddymiller posted.  I'm descended from Rebecca, I still haven't found her baptism but suspect it may be unreadable in the margin of a register.  She stated she was born at Diseworth c1779.

EDIT:  But wait, who is this Charles who is often on Census as John's brother?!  Is your John NOT the s/o John and Dorothy?!
