Some years ago I visited Babworth to search for any information about my ancestors the "Shirtcliffes" I was unsuccessful as it was a weekend and there were not many people about. I know my ancestor William Shirtcliff/e married a Mary Turner in 1809 in the Babworth church, but nothing else is known about him. I would beinterested to hear of anyone who has information on how I can find out more.
