GAY family of Gautby, Lincolnshire

Classification: Query
Surnames: Gay, Beecham, Willoughby
A GAY family as requested, though one in which I have little ancestry. It is presented below, it isn't more than an identifying spot. :-)

I have a William GAY m. Elizabeth (unk)
William b. c1747 and bur. 20 Nov 1818 in Gautby, Lincolnshire, aged 71. [ref Gautby bur transcriptions] His wife predeceased him.

[has my email address]

Two daughters, Elizabeth (b. c1782) and Susanna (1788-1878) born to marriage, and both born in Gautby. [Ref: IGI and probate]. Susanna married twice, 1806 Isaac BEECHAM (my antecedent) and 1836 George Rivis WILLOUGHBY

No evidence of marriage in Gautby or anywhere else in Lincolnshire. In fact no evidence of GAY family anywhere else in Lincolnshire.

On William's will (1811), he identified himself as a yeoman, so not dirt poor, nor filthy rich. I could not find evidence. I have yet to locate any land records for Gautby so have not progressed this family further one iota.

Regards Andrew
