Whitgift and Swinefleet family tree

The earliest ancestor I’ve been able to trace in this tree is Richard Sarginson (1715-1809). His burial record describes him as a miller and he seems to have owned property in the surrounding areas. I’m not completely sure about his birth/baptism dates, nor his two wives, although I have included them on the Descendants for Richard SARGINSON report in case anyone else has further information to help determine if they are correct. Do contact me if you have any information which would help me in this regard. The main surname variants in this family group are Sarginson and Sergison.

Richard certainly had at least four children and one of them, Richard Sarginson (1752-1831), a yeoman, appears in a number of land tax records and helpfully left a will. Sadly none of his sons went onto have male children. Richard left parcels of land to all his three children and the family farming interests seem to have been carried on by the family of his daughter Ann (1782-1865). Her son Sarginson Snow (1817-1893) was recorded as a farmer in Swinefleet in the 1881 census.

While I make every effort to verify the information I include in these trees there is always the chance I have made some mistakes. If you spot any or have any further information you are willing to share with me then do please contact me.
