My 6 x great-grandparents, Thomas Pell and Isabell Emery, were married at the Parish Church on 13/4/1732. Their children were born in the village, and Thomas, Isabell and some of their children were buried in Great Houghton. It would be interesting to know whether any of their family remained in the village. Their son Richard (my 5 x great-grandfather) moved to Kingsthorpe, then to Coventry. We recently visited Great Houghton, it is a lovely village.

My great grandmother was born in Great Houghton in 1868. She married Charles Neville and moved to Swanscombe in Kent. She had four children at the time of the 1901 census, the eldest of whom was nine. All I know is that her name was Lizzie! I need to do some research to find her maiden name and to see if any relatives of "Lizzie" live in the area. I now live 20 miles from Great Houghton, having been born in Dartford, Kent. She and I have crossed paths!
