This weekend I decided to take a break from my research of Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949 and my paternal grandfather's line; instead I concentrated on Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON) 1901-1983, my paternal grandmother's line.

Ivy DIXON 1901-1983 was born on the 5th of October 1901 at Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby) near Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, the third child of Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 and Mary Maria DIXON (née Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE) 1878-1964. Though she has the surname DIXON, I always remember her being referred to as Grannie CARTER, a reference to her stepfather Joseph CARTER 1877-1959.

Though I have often visited Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby) and Marton, villages close to Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, the villages of Thimbleby and Winceby are new to me.
This 1880 map of Lincolnshire can be found on the Lincolnshire Wolds web site.

Notes:
1. Hagg refers to Hagworthingham.
2. Ivy DIXON was born in October 1901, thus she is not recorded in the 1901 census.

Updates:
2011-12-31 After a days cycling in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and realising we were not far from the village of Thimbleby, we stopped by to take some photographs. I will endeavour to add these to the Gallery.
