I've just discovered this website and am so pleased to have found others researching Asplins in Cambridgeshire.
I live in Wiltshire, England and have been working on my family history on and off (mostly off!) for the past 6 years.
I haven't yet found a link to the Isaac Asplin who emigrated to the US but I'm sure there must be a close connection somewhere.
My Asplin connections are:
My paternal grandmother - Esther Asplin 1888-1942. Her father - Amos Asplin 1868-1942 born Horningsea, Cambs. Amos' father - Isaac Asplin 1836-? (but alive aged 65 on 1901 Census) born Horningsea, Cambs. Isaac's father - Henry Asplin 1808?-? (but alive aged 83 on 1891 Census) born Stretham, Cambs.
Interestingly my Isaac's mother was called Ellen and she was approx 10 -13 years younger (her age varies on each census!), but both Isaac & Ellen are recorded on the 1851, 1871, 1881 & 1891 census returns.
Isaac had 4 siblings, all born in Horningsea: William 1833 Lydia 1841 Marianne 1843 George 1845
It would be great to hear from anyone whose research connects to mine.
