Moulds Family of Old Somerby, Lincolnshire

Recent website updates have been mainly focused on the descendants of William MOULDS, (c1710-1774), Stuart's 5th great-grandfather, who lived in Little Ponton, Lincolnshire.

Stuart's 4th great-uncle, married Mary Sharman on 15 May 1813 in St. Mary Magdalene's Church, Somerby. They subsequently had eight children, seven of which were baptised in St. Mary Magdalene's Church in Somerby.

Stuart had previously visited the churchyard on 17 June 2009, and was accompanied by numerous chickens. See the photograph album at

A couple of weeks ago, we decided to visit the church again. We had an extremely enjoyable visit. Fortunately, the church was open and we were able to see the outstanding features, which date back to 1140. See the photograph album at
Inside the church was a visitors book, and when scrolling through the pages we noticed that there was a yearly family gathering of the Moulds family. Several had included their names, one in particular, Barbara, had included her email address. Subsequently, during the following week we exchanged emails and have considerably expanded the information on the UK Moulds descendants. Barbara is Stuart's fifth cousin, and extremely interested in family history - so do look on the website, and find the people who lived in Somerby (near Grantham), Lincolnshire.
