My Family History & Genealogy

The Linford Family

The Linford Family

My great great Grandfather was a Linford and this is a name which has been passed down through the generations as a Christian name as well.

I have also used birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates and records from the Church of Latter Day Saints to compile these records.   Becky Willoughby has contributed a large amount of the information you will find below, including the majority of the photos.

Linford Marriages: details of some of the marriages taken place, information taken from marriage certificates and information provided by Southampton Council.

Census Records

Census Records: A list of all the Linfords featured here who appear on British Census records, please note however that there are some discrepancies with ages and spelling of christian names, a common occurrence I believe. To make it easier I have divided these up into years allowing you to follow your ancestors progress over time.  In the 1841 Census it was common practice to round of the ages of person, i.e. if they were 13 then they were put down as being 15.  If I have missed out anyone, or failed to follow a family through the years then please let me know and I will look them up and add them.
