Are the Owston Ferry Lindley family connected to the Epworth Lindleys? Do they trace back to MIsterton?

This has been puzzling me for years and I seem unable to make any progress. Gervas Lindley is my great x2 grandfather.

Could anyone help me with this?

Hi Maddy, it eludes us too. See our best guess by tracing back Gervas' ancestry here.

Hi Adrian
Gervas' grandfather John is the mystery man as I have been unable to trace his baptism - 1732 seems to be a guess date given out by others though their is no clue of place of baptism.

Galloping through the Misterton Lindleys it appears that this is where the Epworth, Finningley and Bawtry originate from. I suspect that the Owston Ferry Lindleys originate from Misterton too - yet to be proved... I suspect that John may have been born earlier... yet to be proved...!

I didn't reply to you regarding the Slingsbys - this was some time ago - really chuffed to find that all the Isle Slingsbys connect back to Owston Ferry - so I have many distant relatives out there!

Best wishes
