Simon's story looks tantilisingly close to mine which goes as follows; My family have deep roots in Coddington, Balderton and Newark (all in Nottinghamshire). Coddington is right on the Lincolnshire county boundary. In 1626 Richard Birkett married Margaret Grubb and the line descends down to me. I have a cousin who's name is Simon Smith and my father has helped me research the family history. In May 1809 Samuel Birkett (my GGG Grandfather) agreed an indenture with his creditors when his victualling business failed. It all sounds spookily close to the story Simon tells but apart from a brief encounter with Beckingham (the next village to Coddington but over the county boundary in Lincs), my family were all based in Notts. I'm not in close touch with Simon so haven't checked to see if there's a link.
