Just recently and totally out of the blue a gentlemen whom for privacy I will refer to as JM, having seen this website emailed me regarding Sarah Elizabeth MAPLETHORPE 1876-1962 the elder sister of my great grandmother Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964. Sarah and Mary were the eldest daughters of John Robert MAPLETHORPE 1851-Deceased and Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883).

JM came across this website while researching his branch of the MAPLETHORPE family. He has very kindly provided some family photographs and certificates. I will endeavour to add the photographs to my Gallery and hopefully find time to transcribe the certificates.

Searching my email archive I remembered back in 2005 a lady by the initials PH had also contacted me, she too being a descendant of John Robert MAPLETHORPE 1851-Deceased and Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883). Both PH and JM provided the Remembrance card shown below.

I do so appreciate people contacting me since even the smallest clue can lead to huge steps forward. Information about the MAPLETHORPE connections that JM and PH so kindly provided has allowed me to extend my knowledge of our MAPLETHORPE connections. It has also helped establish links to more villages located in the north Nottinghamshire and north Lincolnshire area.

Joseph Barker SMITH 1875-1956 was born in 1875 at Kirton-in-Lindsey, a small town in north Lincolnshire. Sarah Elizabeth MAPLETHORPE 1876-1962 was born in 1876 at Upton-cum-Kexby a small village in north Lincolnshire. They married in 1895 and lived on a farm at Pusto near Everton, later moving to Scaftworth near Bawtry and eventually to Everton, both villages are just inside the Nottingamshire county boundary.

Joseph Barker SMITH 1875-1956 and Sarah Elizabeth SMITH (née Sarah Elizabeth MAPLETHORPE 1876-1962) are buried together at Everton cemetery.

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.

In 1901 the DIXON household and a CARTER household were neighbours at Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby). Joseph CARTER the younger is 28 years old and Mary Maria DIXON (née Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964) is 24 years old. Is it possible Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 passed away and eventually Mary Maria married her neighbour's son, Joseph CARTER the younger?

Last week in this post I wrote about finding a descendant of John Robert MAPLETHORPE 1851-Deceased and Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883), well this person whom for privacy I will refer to as PH, the gg grandaughter of Sarah Elizabeth SMITH (née Sarah Elizabeth MAPLETHORPE 1876-1962) has very kindly provided me with many interesting details for this line of the family.

My original research linking my grandmother Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON 1901-1983) with Mary Maria DIXON / Mary Maria CARTER (née Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964), John Robert MAPLETHORPE 1851-Deceased (sometimes cited as John W MAPLETHORPE) and Rebecca MAPLETHORPE (née Rebecca FORD 1855-1883) proved to be correct. I have now established various dates and places though it will take sometime to collate all this information and update this site accordingly.

Updates:

This is almost certainly the correct Joseph CARTER, since from my earliest childhood recollections, 'Carter' and 'Fillingham' always stick in my mind.

Updates:
2005-11-19 Having looked at this again I have my doubts about this being the correct Joseph CARTER.

2016-11-01 My doubts over this proved to be correct. This post provides details of the correct Joseph CARTER.

It is quite some time since I used FreeBMD and I surmise additional 20th century data has been transcribed, since while searching for Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964 I came across a marriage to 'CARTER'. The later marriage returns (I think, post 1912) list the name of the spouse, though only the surname.

FreeBMD returns a marriage for Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964 to Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 in September 1897 though her name appears as Mary Maria MABLETHOPE. FreeBMD returns a second marriage in June 1913, this time the spouse is shown as 'CARTER'. At this moment in time I have no information regarding when or why her first marriage to Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 ceased.

I know my grandmother Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON 1901-1983) and Kathleen LOCK (née Kathleen CARTER 1917-Deceased) were step-sisters but sometimes names in families can be very misleading. My relatives from Marton, Lincolnshire always referred to Ivy DIXON 1901-1983 as 'Granny Carter' and it is only recently as I delved into her family history that have I learned of Samuel DIXON 1869-1906, her biological father.

My family is in possession of Mary Maria's death certificate in which she is described as the widow of Joseph CARTER. So this gives a forename to 'Carter'. Further searches on FreeBMD returns a birth for one Joseph CARTER in March 1877. This birth was registered in the Gainsborough district. This fits my expectations so I will consider it correct it until proved otherwise.

Just to throw a little spanner into the works, Ivy DIXON 1901-1983's marriage certificate records George DIXON as being her father, not Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 as I would have expected. This needs further research.

Notes:
Since I wrote this I have spoken with one of my relatives at Marton, Lincolnshire and I now have my doubts about this Joseph CARTER.

Updates:
2016-11-01 My doubts over this proved to be correct. This post provides details of the correct Joseph CARTER.

Samuel Dixon and Mary Maria Mablethorpe

Published: May 24, 2005    Last modified: February 17, 2017

A quick search online shows a marriage in 1897 between one Samuel DIXON and one Mary Maria MABLETHORPE. At first glance this would certainly appear to give me my great grandmother's maiden name, though until I have documentary evidence to support this I will store it in the 'to be checked' tray.

Updates:
2015-03-18 Mablethorpe and Maplethorpe seem to be interchangeable; both being in use in various documents. I eventually settled on Maplethorpe.
