Mary Maria Carter (née Mary Maria Maplethorpe 1878-1964)
and Joseph Carter 1872-1959
Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch, Marton, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire

This photograph of my great grandparents Mary Maria CARTER (née Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964) and Joseph CARTER 1872-1959 was probably taken circa 1960 outside the Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch which stands on the junction of Trent Port Road with High Street, Marton, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.

Mary Maria married twice: her first marriage to Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 took place at the Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch on the 15th of September 1897. Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 died from Tuberculosis on the 20th of November 1906 at Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby), Lincolnshire, at the relatively young age of 37 years.

This marriage produced 3 children:

Charles Edward DIXON 1898-1917
Alice DIXON 1899-1959
Ivy DIXON 1901-1983 born 5th October 1901 (my grandmother)

After the death of Samuel DIXON 1869-1906, Mary married Joseph CARTER 1872-1959 during June 1913.

This marriage produced 2 children:

Harold CARTER 1913-1977 born September 1913
Katheleen LOCK (née Kathleen CARTER 1917-Deceased) born June 1917

Notes:
MAPLETHORPE or MABLETHORPE? This branch of the family seems to use either of these surnames dependant on the generation.

Married on the 15th of September 1897, in the Parish Church at Marton, Lincolnshire.

Marton, Upton, Kexby, Gate Burton and Misterton

Church of All Saints, Upton, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire

Over the bank holiday we spent a couple of days in and around Marton, Lincolnshire, combining some much needed exercise in the form of walking and cycling with some family history research.

We visited the following churches:

Church of All Saints, Misterton
Church of All Saints, Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby)
Church of Saint Helen, Gate Burton
Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch, Marton

and the cemetery at Trent Port Road, Marton.

I took numerous photographs of these churches together with some interesting headstones bearing the family names of FORD, CARTER, DIXON and LOCK. I will gradually add these to my 'Gallery'.

I need to spend a little time analysing the inscriptions on the headstones and no doubt will eventually be able to comment on what I discover. All in all a very rewarding weekend.

Rebecca Maplethorpe (née Rebecca Ford 1855-1883): A short life

Church of Saint Helen
Gate Burton, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire

I have yet to discover exactly where in Knaith, Lincolnshire, Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883) was born, but thanks to PH I know now she is buried in the church yard at the Church of Saint Helen, Gate Burton, Lincolnshire. Rebecca was buried on the 2nd January 1884 having passed away on the 29th December 1883. A short life, and for her family, a very sad new year.

Rememberance Card

Despite Gate Burton being just half a mile from Marton, Lincolnshire and having many photographs of the Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch, Marton, I find myself without one of the Church of Saint Helen, Gate Burton. I will rectify this on my next visit to Marton.

Notes:
Thanks must go to PH a gg granddaughter of Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883) for contacting me by email and providing many details regarding the descendants of John Robert MAPLETHORPE 1851-Deceased and Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883).

Thanks also must go to JM another descendant of Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883) for providing the burial card.

2007-08-31 I finally made the time to visit the Church of Saint Helen, Gate Burton. To view the 'Gallery' album please click here or to read the update in full please click here.

Littleborough Lane, Marton, Lincolnshire

Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch, Marton, Lincolnshire

Many of my paternal grandmother Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON 1901-1983)'s ancestors lived in this region of Lincolnshire, and during their lifetimes, many lived at Marton, a small village close to the River Trent. In this region the River Trent forms a natural county boundary between Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

Littleborough Lane, Marton, Lincolnshire forms part of a Roman road which runs from Lincoln to Littleborough, Nottinghamshire, crossing the River Trent just west of Marton. In Roman Britain this would have been a major strategic crossing point and archaeological investigation has revealed the existence of a fort, presumably built to guard the crossing.

Further information about the village of Marton and its Roman road and fort, can be found at Roman Britain: Marton.

Updates:
2016-11-01 The Roman Britain website has moved from roman-britain.org to roman-britain.co.uk so I have updated the links, though a note on the site suggests some pages of the archive may not work.
