Hello, I seein your message that you mention the Nightscales in Lincolnshire. My Grandmother was a Nightscales (before she married)who still lives in Gainsborough Lincolnshire and I decided to do a little research into the family name as she didn't know of anymore surviving Nightscales that are closely related. My Grandmother was born in 1911 to a William Hill( William was born in Spilsby, Lincolnshire) and Alice Nightscales. I have managed to trace the family back as far as my Great-Great-Great Grandfather William Nightscales, born in 1804 and who was living in East street Sleaford. The majority of Nightscales that I traced seem to come from the lincolnshire area but I have found out that a Ruth Cook (formally Nightscales and sister to my Great Grandfather)moved to Sculcoates in Yorkshire. This is where there seems to be a number of other Nightscales and I curious to know if the family connection took her to Sculcoates. I have traced some very distant family links to Australia through Alma Nightscales (cousin to my Great Grandfather).It would be interesting if any connections could be made with the Yorkshire and Linclnshire Nightscales.
