Whittlesey Kisby's

John Kisby (c.1768 - 1845) and family....

From information supplied by Sean Kisby sean@kisbee.co.uk

John Kisby is one of the few C18th Kisby's of Whittlesey who appears in the 1841 Census. Mary, his wife, is most likely to be the Mary Barwick, who married a John Kisby in 1801. It is most likely that the children below were of the same John and Mary - there was only one couple of that name in Whittlesey in the early 1800's (this is educated guesswork, not rocket science!!).

But John and Mary must have been the most unfortunate couple in the area when it came to infant mortality (see below).

When the census enumerator visited them in 1841, John and Mary were sharing accomodation in Peterboro Town End. Ten years later they were long dead, but their name lived on in the introduction to part of the 1851 Census record of Whittlesey (HO107 f.17 Dist 1B&2B), which described:

"Part of Peterboro Town End beginning with (late) Kisbys tenements
(not taking tenements opposite on the west side of the road and Bakers Houses)
to new school Frinkel Lane...."
