I've often wondered about that Thomas Pipes and Catherine Miller! -- they must be related to my family! I have a Thomas b 1797 in Gainsborough, Lincs who married Catherine Simpson in Derby in 1818. He had lots of kids including Thomas b 1824 (no more details) and Samuel 1822-1879 my great great grandfather. Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other info that might link our two families.
