Notes on maternal ancestors of John Gibbon.
There are links from these notes to each person's Wikitree profile, which includes all sources and notes and links to other family members, and for the more recent people there is often a photograph. On the Wikitree profiles, anything underlined is a link, and the boxed 'Ancestors' and 'Descendants' show a tree of ancestors or a list of descendants. Profiles of living people are private, try person 2 or 3.
Ancestors are listed using the Ahnentafel numbering system. Person 1 is the root of the tree, their father is number 2, their mother is number 3. For anyone in the tree, their father's number is double their number, and their mother's number is double their number plus one.
To avoid repetition, details of children are given for the father (because he is described first).

2 Charles Hind (20 March 1904-12 April 1994) son of #4 George James Hind (1870-1905) and #5 Beatrice Charlotte (Kedge) Askew (abt.1868-1937) Charles, known as 'Wag', was born in Lincoln, the sixth of seven children. His father died just two weeks before Charles' first birthday; his younger sister was born when his father had been dead for six months. The family lived in Lincoln and took in a lodger, who Charles' mother later married when Charles was 11 years old. Stepdad William King Askew (1886-1919) fought in the first world war and as a result of a wound his leg was amputated; he died from a resulting infection in 1919. Charles married #3 Hilda Matthews on 26th December 1928 and had three children, #1 June Peter and Robert. Charles was an electrical engineer at a ball bearing factory in Newark so did not go to fight in WW2, but he was an ARP warden.

4 George James Hind (14 Feb 1870 - 3 May 1905) son of #8 George Hind (1811-abt.1897) and #9 Charlotte (Pridmore) Hind (bef.1828-1896). George was born in Lincoln, probably the youngest of is father's 13 children, and his mother's sixth child - the youngest of five that they had together. George was christened in Newport, Lincoln in July 1870. George married #5 Beatrice Charlotte Kedge on 31st March 1893 at Lincoln Registry Office. George was a 'fitter'. The couple had seven children born in Lincoln. The second, Walter, died age 6 in 1902. George died on 3rd March 1905, about two weeks before the sixth child was a year old, six months before the youngest was born. He died in the drill hall in a Typhoid epidemic that killed 131 people in Lincoln. He was buried at Canwick Road Cemetry, Lincoln, on 6th March.
5 Beatrice Charlotte (Finney, Kedge, Hind) Askew (25 March 1867 - 6 Oct 1937) daughter of #10 Robert Finney (1845-1871) and #11 Charlotte (Kedge) Windsor (bef.1843-1929). June did not know 'Granny Askew' very well, but she does remember her as an old lady. Beatrice grew up as Beatrice Kedge. She was illegitimate, born at 71 Britannia Street, Hoxton New Town, (Shoreditch). She grew up with her mother, listed on census returns as a niece. Her father was a publican, who died three or four years after Beatrice was born. In 1881, when she was 14, she was living with her mother and step father William Windsor, a shipbroker, at 61 Median Road, Hackney. She had seven half-siblings. Her mother was widowed in 1889 and kept a boarding house in Hornsey with men from mainland Europe lodging in 1891. Beatrice was a governess in 1891. Beatrice married #4 George James Hind in Lincoln Registry office on 31st March 1893, when she was 24. Her father was listed as 'Robert Kedge. deceased publican'. We can only speculate about what Beatrice, or her step father or siblings, knew about her parentage. Beatrice and George livid in Lincoln and had seven children, Mally, Walter, Joel, George, Lottie, Charles and Trudie. George died in the Typhoid epidemic that killed 1331 people in Lincoln. Beatrice had a boarder William Askew in 1911, who she married in 1915; he died in 1919, apparently of an infection following the amputation of his leg after a war wound. Beatrice lived to be 69; she died in Birmingham in 1937.

10 Robert Finney (8 Feb 1845-1871) son of #20 William Finney (bef.1811-bef.1857) and #21 Mary (Spinks) Finney (1809-1887).

In 1861 Robert was a barman at his uncle Robert Spink's address in Bishopgate Street Without in East London. This was the Duke of Wellington Pub. Robert became a father age about 22, when #5 Beatrice Charlotte (Finney, Kedge, Hind) Askew (25 March 1867 - 6 Oct 1937) was born. Beatrice's parents were listed as Robert Finney and Charlotte Finney formerly Kedge, although I have found no evidence that the couple were married. In 1870, Robert became licensee at the Sir Paul Pindar in Bishopgate. From the 1871 census he appears to have run the pub with his aunt Francis Spinks. He was recorded as unmarried. Robert died in 1871, age 26.
