  1. Robert Lancashire says:

    ever come across a Constatia Ridout who married a Richard Lancashire. She was born around 1754 and died 1837 at Wincanton

    Hi Robert

    I have looked on Ancestry and the only Lancashire death I could find in 1837 was for a Constance Lancashire – is this her?


  3. Robert J. Lancashire says:

    Hi Karen,
    the little info I have is that Constantia (Constance) was born about 1754, married Richard Lancashire on 21 July 1783 at North Cadbury and died 27 November 1837 (Wincanton, Somerset). I have not found anything about her parents or siblings. She and Richard had about 11 children, their first being twins Richard and James. James is my connection to all this. Richard the twin did not survive and they named 2 other children Richard, of which the 3rd reached adulthood and married.

  4. Prevaricat says:


    This is really hard to solve – I’ve looked at all the many records that I have but can find no-one to fit the bill, no baptisms of a Constance Ridout at all. It’s just possible that, as she was 29 when she married Richard, this may not be her first marriage such that Ridout would not be her maiden name. I will keep her (and you) in mind in the future but can offer nothing useful now I’m afraid.

    Regards, Karen

    Karen, Is there any further information on Mary Gibbs? Are her parents John Gibbs and Sarah Nightingale that married at St Denys, Warminster, Wiltshire on 10th April 1710? I am putting together a definitive diary of her child Thomas Ridout and trying to pin down which of his aunts he lived with while studying in London. Thanks, James R.

      Hi Jim… Sorry, but the only information that I have tallies with what you have just written. Forgive me but, as this is not my direct family, I have not researched this branch in any depth at all.
      Kind Regards, Karen
