My grandfather was James Richard Hipkin. He had 2 older brothers, Thomas and Alfred. Their parents were William Hipkin and Elizabeth (nee Pawley). They were all born at Hempton/Fakenham which is in the Walsingham registration district. Uncle Alfred, born in 1886, was married to Sarah Jane (Nee Softley) and they had 2 sons, Clarence and Victor. I believe that Alfred, who I met a few times when I was young, died in Boston. I do not know what became of Thomas but my granddad did say that he died at sea whilst he was still a young man.
THANK YOU FOR THAT INORMATION I WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU HAVE MORE INFO ON THE HIPKIN SIDE I GOT BACK TO WILLIAM HIPKIN 1865. ALFRED HAD 2 MORE SON LEN & TOM & 2 DAUGHTER BETTY & DEE, ALFRED & TOM GOT THE DSO IN WORLD WAR 2, BUT HIS SPOUSE WAS CLARA JANE SOFTLEY, BETTY WAS MY MOTHER THANK YOU
So sorry, I meant Clara! (Typo. error or just getting old).
I do have quite a lot of information about the Hipkin family. My grandfather (James Richard), younger brother of Alfred, married Gertrude Curtis from Salhouse in 1919 and they had 3 children, William, Kate (my mother) and Roy. None of them are surviving but all 3 had children who are still living. Great Grandfather William ( 1862-1937) was married to Elizabeth Pawley. His father was Richard Hipkin (1826-1892), married to Mary Ann Bassham (1833-1917). Richard 's father was Thomas (1789-1852) and he was married to Amey Bee (1801-1849)
My grandad was in WW1 and served with the Norfolk Regiment in Mesopotamia. In WW2 he worked for the Ministry of transport and spent a lot of time constructing dummy airfields along the N Norfolk coast.
I would love to know more about my grandad's brothers. I did meet Alfred a few times and I seem to recall that some of his sons were fishermen. If this is so then I met them too.!! I do have some certificates which you might like copies of. It would be easier to attach these to an e-mail.
My e-mail address is b.scade@btinternet .com.
If you are happy for me to have your e-mail address then I would be very happy to let you have copies of certificates and photographs of my grandparents (if you would like them)!!
Im hoping someone can help me out. I'm relatively new to this site. I am unable to search for my ancestors it seems. Every time I try it lets me put in the name to search for, then shows that the search has started and within approx 2 seconds it stops and goes to a another page and says that I have to install a component/toolbar to perform searches. However, it never lets me install as then it automatically freezes and says 'Not responding' and 'Webpage expired'
bonjour, je suis nouvelle sur ce site, je viens de créer mon arbre généalogique, et en rentrant des données sur certaines personnes, j 'ai eu des "alertes" comme quoi il y avait des smartsmaches avec un autre arbre, d 'un certain "thierry......"; j ' ai voulu attendre de finir de rentrer mes donnéespour rentrer en contact avec ce genealogiste, mais impossible de retrouver ces alertes sur nos personnages communs! pourtant j ai bien d autres smartsmashes qui s 'affichent avec d 'autres genealogistes et qui restent à ma disposition, mais impossible de retrouver trace et adresse mail de "thierry"
voila mon soucis, si quelqu un veut bien m ' aider, je vous en remercies d 'avance
I am currently looking for some timeline software to produce a timeline of events over a period of about 100 years in order that I can display the life of some of my ancestors and overlay world/local events of that time. In this way I hope to get a graphical feel for my ancestors life and also the times they were living in. Does anyone else use such products to display their research?
Before I spend lots of time and money sourcing a product I thought I would ask the experts (you!).
I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on what is a good product to use (Pro's and cons) and what I should steer clear of and why? What do I need to be looking out for in terms of functionality to give me the best possible presentation of my information but also hopefully, the ability to drill behind the information in the main timeline to give background notes etc?
