I'm trying to trace back the AINSWORTH line of 1780 Lincolnshire, marrying into the STURTON/STOURTON line.Information I have places the family in Sleaford.
The family is connected with the names mentioned below:
Sir Michael Livesey James Ainsworth - Anne Ashworth Jms Sturton - Anne Ainsworth Children, John, Elizabeth, Samuel, Joseph, Ann, May
Note regarding the Ainsworths and Sturtons: John (1809-1885) -John (1775-1855) m. Ann Ainsworth (-1857), 11 children --Samuel (1742-) m. Mary Kirton, 2 children ---Thomas STOURTON (-1749), 2 children ----Thomas STOURTON (1668-1698), 1 child -----Thomas (Rev.) STOURTON (1634-1677), 5 children ------Erasmus (Rev.) STOURTON (1603-1658), 1 child
There may be a connection to the surnames of: CAMMACK, BLACK, MIDDLEBROOK, HEWARD, LIVESEY, & TYNDALE.
Location clues might be:Ely (Cambridgeshire), Kirkby la thorpe (Lincolnshire), Scarborough (Yorkshire), Blackpool, Blackburn (Lancashire/Yorkshire), and Norton (Nottinghamshire).
Extra 'good will' points if someone can connect us to the TINDALL/TYNDALE lines by marriage!!!
