  • John Daybell Robinson is the younger brother of my great grandfather James William Robinson, who migrated to Australia in 1883, soon after marrying my great-grandmother Kezia Lane, daughter of Marshall Lane and Sarah Billings. James was only 19 years of age, and Kezia, 17. This website has considerable Information on the Lane family over generations. I am wondering if there are any Robinsons left in Bottesford – ancestors of John, who was James only living sibling? Does anyone have any other information on the Robinson family? The parents were James William Robinson (Senior) and Mary Daybell, who married in 1863. James Senior was a carpenter and joiner like his father, James before him. I haven’t found any link to other Robinsons mentioned on this website.

  • A brief comment that needs further research.
    Mrs JD Robinson was born in Rowan Cottage, Bottesford and died in March 1943.
    According to notices in the Grantham Journal in the 1930s, in April 1930 there was an advert in the Journal for Herbals at the Red Lion, Grantham.
    In April 1931 the herbals advert claimed that the remedies would help with Cancer Relief and Mrs Robinson was residing at the Red Lion Grantham in September 1931.
