Hi Nancy,

I just joined the Gainsborough MSN Communities site, hosted by Tanya. You can check out my post today at that site.

In answer to your question. Yes, it appears that we could be related. In my documents relating to births, christenings, deaths and marriages, I see a Hannah Laughton marrying to a John Harrison on 14Jul1811. However, the relative of mine, who would be most-closely matched in age, is Joseph Laughton born 14Apr.1802 to William and Susanna(Rustling)Laughton. I don't see a Hannah born to William and Susanna though. Figuring that your Hannah would have been in her 20's when she got married, there is none listed for Gainsborough in the 1780's and early 1790's. There is a Hannah, born to Thomas and Amy Laughton on 2Apr.1773 in Gainsborough. The other Hannah, in that time frame was born to Henrey(sp) and Hannah Laughton in Owston on 15Oct1777. The other Hannah's had different Laughton spellings, i.e. "Lawton" and "Lowton". Of course I'm told that that was not uncommon to have the name spelled differently during that time. So, unfortunately it appears that we aren't directly related. If you send me your e-mail addy, I will send you an e-mail attachment of a scanned document I have concerning what I believe my lineage is back to 1660. This may not be entirely correct, however, but it's the best I've been able to do so far. I would send you the document on births, deaths, marriages, etc. but it doesn't come out when I scan it to others. It's very faded. The only way to do this would to be to send it via snail mail. If you live in the Gainsborough area you can get a copy of it from the Lincolnshire Archives, I believe.
