I have only just checked this Forum again, so have just found your message.
I am a 3x Great Grand-daughter of Bartholomew Dingle, born 1770. Bartholomews daughter Elizabeth married John Rapson and I am descended from this line. I would love to swap info on the Dingles with you. As I said I do have a fair amount of info already but some of it is mixed up and a lot I haven't been able to confirm.
I am also interested to find out if any of the Dingles who went to Ballarat in Australia are connected to me. There are a couple of them with the middle name of Rapson, so I am interested to see if and how they are related.
Look forward to hearing from you, Regards Valerie McDougall (nee Rapson)>
