The Joyces of Blackfordby and Boothorpe – by Matthew Ingle Joyce

Dec 16th, 2012 | By | Category: Tales of the Joyce Family

The following information is from a website by Tim – surname and contact details not known, but it contains an extensive family tree of his branch of the Joyce Family.


The research for this tree was started having seen the work that was done by Matthew Ingle Joyce He wrote a book for private circulation called The Joyces of Blackfordby and Boothorpe around 1896. The Joyce family is related through the Hall family to the Sherard family. Taking these lines as a basis I have aimed to verify the assertions it makes with census data and birth, marriage, and death records. Along the way I have discovered a little of the Ward family who passed through Blackfordby and their relationship to Carrington, Fowler, Yates, Smith. MIJ’s daughter married a Cripps and I have followed that line too. mainly because of the middle name MIJ inherited from his mother I have followed the Ingle family who appear to abruptly die out in the 1850s. One reason for this is that a number of them emmigrated and settled in Texas.
