Hi I have been asked by an elderly friend of mine to look into her family history, she is the daughter of a Sidney Herbert Shipton from Dorset. I have l looked on the 1881 census and the 1901 census and there do not seem to be too many Shipton's. I believe her father was born about 1890 possibly to a Joseph Shipton. I think Joseph was born about 1858 in Bockhampton and his father was Richard born about 1825 also in Bockhampton. If these fit into your family would you please get in touch and hopefully share your info.
