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.
