Do you have a CRACROFT connection?

On my recent travels I found a fascinating photographic postcard showing a man and a lady who had both signed their names next to their photographs – E W and Cicely CRACROFT.

As always I would like to find a family connection and reunite this photograph if possible – so do you have a CRACROFT connection?

Looking at the 1911 census records I found Edward Weston and Cicely Sophia Mary CRACROFT living at Hackthorn Hall in Lincoln ( see website:  – they had been married for 31 years and had no children.

I then found the 1901 census record as below:

Looking for a marriage record I found that Edward Weston CRACROFT (AMCOTTS) had married Cicely Sophia Mary NEVILLE in Hackthorn in Lincoln on 24th April 1879.

Cicely died on 22nd January 1929 and Edward on 30th January 1933.

Therefore if anyone has any information or a connection to this CRACROFT family please let me know, as I would love to hear from you.

    Looked at both the houses where Cicely & Edward were born. Beautiful stately homes. Wish I could claim ancestry, but sadly no. Hope someone comes forward.
