How exciting to hear of the newly formed Docking Heritage Group! My Docking
ancestors can be traced back to the late 1500s.
The names I have in my family are STORIE/EY, ENGLAND, PITCHER.
George ENGLAND married Barbara STOREY 1 Aug 1636 in Docking. She was born
there but George seems to have appeared from nowhere.
The PITCHER family joined the ENGLAND family with George and Barbara's
grandson, George marrying Margaret PITCHER 1 Aug 1693.
I have a film of Parish Register Transcripts at the LDS Family History
Centre here and it is a gold mine of information for me. The film number is
1702622. The transcription was done by one of the incumbents in I think the
late 1700s and the handwriting is excellent - and he has faithfully
transcribed the spellings exactly as they must have been orgininally
written. A lot of it is in Latin but easily understandable.
I could prepare an ENGLAND family tree for you - and I have access to a
PITCHER tree but as it is mostly not my work I would have to get permission
from the owner to give it to you.
The ENGLANDs were only in Docking for about a hundred years but branches
settled in Snettisham and North Wootton as well as some in Bagthorpe. There
may be others in the area but I havne't found them yet. (my line is the
North Wootton one) - and there must have been some female marriages that I
have not traced who probably lived in Docking.
I look forward to visiting on an "open day" when I am next in England
visiting my mother (an ENGLAND by birth) who lives in Wisbech.
