Ann (Nancy) Martin of Kempsey

One of Ari’s 6x great-grandmothers was Ann (Nancy) Martin, who was born in 1770, probably at or near Kempsey in Worcestershire.

I haven’t found a record of her baptism yet, so I don’t know who her parents were.

In April 1790, she married William Dancocks, an agricultural labourer, at the church of St Mary in Kempsey.

Ann and William had seven children: William, James, Thomas, Charlotte, Sarah, Mary and Maria.

In April 1841 Ann was recorded in the census aged seventy, living in Kempsey with her husband and oldest son:

Ann died ten years later and was buried in the churchyard in Kempsey on 24 March 1851.

A memorial to Sir Edmund Wylde, situated in the chancel of St Mary’s church, Kempsey. It dates from 1620. He became Sheriff of Worcestershire that year, and died in his first year in office.


Berrow’s Worcester Journal published a very interesting history of Kempsey on 22 December 1900, including this snippet:
