    Hello Dale

    We're all part of the same Parkin clan, mostly in New Zealand and Australia now it would seem. Our ancestor is Thomas Parkin (1814-1886), brother of John Parkin of Stepney. This part of the family stayed around Cambridgeshire/Bedfordshire area and there's a few of us in the UK. The photo Jason posted of John Parkin is not your ancestor though, it is Thomas's son, John (1855 - 1935), who is Edwin's cousin (I think!). The Parkin family seem to have come from the Castle Camps area of Cambridgeshire and we have records back to the mid 1600s.

    Hi Liz
    Thanks so much for your reply. It is interesting to see where we all fit in on the family tree. My Dad Bob (Robert Edwin) Parkin (87) asked me to see if I could find anything because his info stopped at John (1809) and he was interested to see if he had siblings and if we could find anything before that.
    I am very grateful to Jason because we can now go all the way back to 1620!
    Our Parkin line runs:
    Dad
    his Dad Gilbert
    Edwin (1866)
    George (wife Elizabeth Kite)
    John (1809, wife Louisa Farrington) - and brother to your ancestor Thomas (1814).
    The whole family tree gets complicated with the name John, Edwin and George featuring in each generation.
    Anyway, very glad to make your acquaintance.
    Kind regards
    Dale

    Hi

    I've spent the best part of the last 10 years trying to trace my Parkin family in Stepney and kept hitting a brick wall with my Great Great Grandfather John Parkin, born circa 1852 in Stepney. I have his death certificate, but have never found a marriage for him & Ann Julia Bassett or a birth certificate. I keep coming across the possibility of his parents being Thomas Parkin born circa 1815 in Stapleford, Cambridgeshire & Eliza Jeffrey born 1822 Castle Camps, but without a birth certificate I am struggling to confirm this.

    tia of any help

    Regards

    Nickki

    On the GRO index there is this birth
    John Parkin March 1/4 1852 registration district Shoreditch vol 1c page 173 Mother's maiden name Jeffrey
    Stepney is not included in the district of Shoreditch on FreeBMD but they are only 3 miles apart on google maps

    Hi Christina
    Thank you for your reply..... I'm so sorry, I have put the wrong name ... my GG Grandfather was Joseph Parkin, according to his death certificate born in 1850. I have searched many online directories over the years & never been able to find a marriage, therefore have difficulty confirming a birth. I keep going back to this line, as it was what got me started researching in the first place. Having tracked many familes back further, I'm pretty sure that his parents were Thomas Parkin & Eliza Jeffrey, but dont know how to make the link. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Hi
    On the GRO index 1850 +/- 2 years
    Birth registration Joseph Parkin Dec 1/4 1852 Reg Dist STEPNEY vol 1c page 542 MMN Jeffrey.
    There are no others in Stepney in the time frame and no others with the mmn Jeffrey. A discrepancy of 2 years on his death certificate is no big deal.

    Hi Christina.... I have looked at this birth many times, but as I am unable to make a link to Thomas Parkin & Eliza Jeffrey, I dont want to make an assumption. I would really like to try & find a marriage between Jospeh Parkin & Ann Julia Basset, to see if Joseph father's details are recorded. So far i haven't managed to find anything remotely close.
