I am fascinated with the progression of the nicknames that you so clearly illustrated.
Some of these I already knew, but your translation of "Jinsy" was a light-bulb moment for me.One of my ancestor's sister was called 'Jency,' and I hadn't a clue for what it might have been the nickname.
How/where might I find more information or insight on unraveling other oddities that are obvious nicknames?Suggestions would be much appreciated!
My family line's use of Leety and Dicey as girl's names, I have only speculations about.Perhaps Dicey might have been Ledicy or speculatively, Laodicia from the Bible - but Leety ??And of course, since these were ladies, there is nothing tangible in any documentation that I've found.
