How to use this Page

  1. Please link any GENI Profiles with links to Lincolnshire to this project.
  2. You can ALSO add the earliest heads of families to the list of Lincolnshire Families on Geni below (don't forget to link their profiles to the project as well). These would usually be male! Please restrict people added to the list to the earliest head of family!

Note People with links to Lincolnshire can be linked to the project but not necessarily added to the list below.

People connected to Lincolnshire can also be linked to the following projects.

Historical and Political people

- accommodated by the project Historical Lincolnshire which covers the History of Lincolnshire and historical/political people. Some of these are also listed in the Famous people category.

Famous or Notable People

Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Lincolnshire Famous People and add them to the listing there.


People from Lincolnshire who went to the "New world" and were early progenitors in those countries. Where the earliest ancestor is known please add them to the list of "Lincolnshire families on Geni" below if that was their roots, or to the appropriate county project.

Where the earliest known ancestor is the emigrant add them to the list below. In some cases if there is a project that covers them in detail please link the project.
