Parish Church of Saint Andrew, Wimpole, Cambridgeshire

In March of this year during a few days staying at Barton Mills, Suffolk we made a fleeting visit to Wimpole Hall, Wimpole, Cambridgeshire.

Standing within the grounds of Wimpole Hall is the Parish Church of Saint Andrew, which though being very close to the hall, is totally independent of both Wimpole Hall and the National Trust which administers the Hall.

The www.wimpole.info web site provides a valuable archive of Wimpole, Orwell and nearby villages.

This site provides a transcript of www.wimpole.info/marriages_1800.htm "The Registers for the Parish of Wimpole, Cambridgeshire" and contains several references to JACKLIN.

This extract shows a reference to a Daniel JACKLIN being a witness to the marriage of Stephen JACKLIN and Jane WHITBY.

4 December 1858
JACKLIN Stephen, of Whaddon, bachelor, labourer, son of John, labourer
WHITBY Jane, spinster, servant, daughter of John, labourer
Witnesses: Daniel JACKLIN and Elizabeth WRIGHT

I thought this might be my gg grandfather Daniel JACKLIN 1842-1897. He would have been 16 years old in 1858; too young to be a marriage witness?

More likely this was Daniel JACKLIN who eventually married Elizabeth WRIGHT at Bassingbourn on 18th April 1863.

Both were descendants of James JACKLIN 1767-1836 and Ann HOWES 1775-1851.

Updates:
2010-10-15 The domain at www.wimpole.info seems to have expired so I have deactivated the links.

2016-11-01 I have added a link to the nearby village of Orwell, where many of the JACKLIN's originated.

2016-11-01 I came across this wonderful site: The Parishes of Arrington, Croydon, Orwell and Wimpole: Local History

"Between 1999 and 2006 I set up and maintained a number of local history websites for Arrington, Croydon, Orwell and Wimpole - four ancient parishes located in South Cambridgeshire, some seven miles west of the university city of Cambridge. For various reasons (mainly employment) the sites gradually died and the domains eventually lapsed. Seven years on and I have been challenged to get the information back out online. Retirement and the discovery of an old pre-USB back-up disc have negated my long (and completely plausible) list of excuses - so here once again are several hundred original web pages, frozen in all their pre-2006 pre-broadband glory! Enjoy the minimal graphics, iffy designs, dodgy navigation and the largely pre-CSS coding." - Steve [September 2013]
