The Family Tree

Robert Tingey
1798-1872

Robert Tingey was one of at least two children of Thomas Tingey and his wife Mary (née Barber) of Witcham, Cambridgeshire, England.

He married Frances 'Fanny' Harrison of Little Downham, Cambridgeshire, and the couple went on to have twelve children. Sadly two of these children did not survive infancy, dying just a few days apart in 1844.

In 1851 the family appears on the Census at Cannon Street, Little Downham, Cambridgeshire. Also living at the house was Robert's widowed Mother, Mary Tingey (nee Barber) and an eleven year old John Burgess, presumably a servant.

The family are 'missing' in 1861 though, and I've been unable to locate them in the area, or under similar surname spellings. Oddly, they return exactly where they previously were by the 1871 census.
