Descendants of James Rickwood

1741 - 1834, of Lt. Livermere and Ampton Suffolk

Much of the original research on this family is the work of Wendy Humpreys, although I have repeated a good deal of it. Wendy contacted me after seeing a previous version of this website.
Three generations of this Rickwood family, James' son George, grandson John and great grandson James married three of Robert Porter's daughters.
Wendy and I are descended from James' great grandson, who married Martha Porter, he worked as a shoemaker. He was apprenticed in Bury St Edmunds and lived in Bethnal Green, Halstead and Gt. Dunmow. The Porter and Rickwood families remained connected. In Halstead, James and family lived with his brother in law Robert Porter. James' eldest son Joseph, worked for George Porter, his uncle, in Gt Bardfield. James' daughter Elizabeth, Aunt Lizzie, lived with her Uncle Charles Porter as housekeeper and inherited property in Romford from him.
