About The Pollintine Family
Please sign in to see more.
Hi, My name is Terry I am a decendent of a line of Pollintines in Suffolk in the 18th C. This site  was created on Nov 17th 2011 and is very much under construction, and must contain some errors.  Any help would be very welcome. Please bookmark and check back on my progress.

I am grateful for the help I have received from amongst others, Fay,  Mahala, Doreen, Kiera, Linda  Janice, Fe, Shirley, Peter and many more, also Tony and Mum who are sadly no longer with us, but  like many others who have passed on will never be forgotten.

My findings so far.
 Of my 4 grandparents, I have all the details. I also have details of 7 of my 8 great grandparents.  My paternal grandmother’s father is unknown, but she was adopted by her stepfather, her birth was  registered after her mother was married, but she was born before the wedding. I have details of her  stepfather’s line (Bendon).

Of my 16 2x gt grandparents I have traced 14 of them, and my 32 3x gt grandparents I have 25, (4 of  those which are missing were from my grandmother’s father’s line as above). I have no father for  William Weller 1811-1890, my 2x gt grandfather, as I believe he was also born out of wedlock. The  other 2 missing 2x gt grandparents were the parents of Elizabeth Farrow b abt 1826. Elizabeth was  the maternal grandmother of my maternal grandfather, Herbert Pollintine 1900 – 1963. The missing information then starts to outweigh that which is known, as I only have 18 of the next  generation, which is my 64, 4x gt grandparents. At this point we are looking at people born in the  middle to late 18c and relying mainly on parish records. 
 Only 2 lines are traced any further, the parents of John Mingay b 1755 are known; John’s  granddaughter married Charles Pollintine who was my 2x gt grandfather. The other line is the  Overingtons, which is interesting, as sisters, Elizabeth (1830) and Esther Overington (1819) were  both my Gt Gt Grandmothers. Esther's son Stephen Weller married his cousin Jane Inwood who was  Elizabeth's Daughter. Just to add to the confusion, Jane's uncle, Harry Inwood was married to  Esther and Elizabeth's Sister Harriett (1833). Therefore, Esther, Elizabeth and Harriett’s parents;  Nathan Overington and Elizabeth Tidy, are each named twice as my great great great grandparents. So  instead of trying to find 32 of them I actually have only 30, of which 7 are missing from my  research. 
 The Overington line has been traced back to my 13 x great grandparents Nicolas Overington born 1516  in Rudwick in Sussex, he married his wife Mawde in 1536. The research on this line was completed by  others, to whom I am very grateful for sharing it. I have checked as much as I can, and believe as  far as I can be certain, the work is as accurate as it is possible. If I want to try to find the  rest of this generation, I would have the task of finding the records for another 32,766 people!
