|About Flinders - Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire and beyond
May 2016: Data from the 1939 register (compiled at the start of WW2) has added many birth dates for those living that year if they were born before 1916. Data for some born 1916 or later is also included if they died prior to 1991.

Many of the births are not shown as the maiden surname of the mother is the same as that for the child (Flinders) on the birth index,hence the author can't determine which child belongs to which set of parents.
This web site is the result of reseach done by the author since 1992.
It also includes the years of research, mainly for the period pre 1881, done by the late Phyllis Flinders Kelsey of Utah. Phyllis was a great friend and she gave me a lot of inspiration when it came to family history matters.
The data covers the descendants of Thomas Flinders/Flinthurst who likely came from Great Gransden and who married Ellen in Potton, Bedfordshire. As to if Thomas was related to the other Flinders families, of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to the north, has yet to be established.
Corrections and additions are always welcome. Please note that there is an issue with the date format here, with some dates that are approximate showing as actual.
