My Family


Home ] Up ] Next ]

My Lobley family are all from Essex in England.  The earliest proved Lobley ancestor I have is William Lobley, who married Hannah Sexton in 1764 in the little village church of South Hanningfield.  They had three known children, the eldest, also named William, was baptised in the same parish a year later in 1765.  He married Mary Pickett in the nearby village of Nevendon.

The eldest of their eight children, yet another William, married Sarah Cage in Nevendon in 1818.  Their fourth child, Jacob, baptised in Pitsea church in 1825 was my great, great grandfather.  He and several of his eight brothers and sisters, moved away from the immediate neighbourhood, seeking work elsewhere.  Jacob moved to Epping, in the West of Essex, obtaining work, like all his ancestors, as an agricultural labourer.

Jacob, and his wife Ann, had a large family of thirteen children.  In 1887, their sixth child, Arthur, married a girl from Yorkshire, Annie Schofield in the East End of London at Stratford, before moving back East to West Thurrock and a job in the growing cement industry.  Arthur and Annie had nine children.  Their sixth child, Sidney James, was born in 1896, married Minnie Elizabeth (Lizzie) Cliffen in 1922, having three boys, the eldest of which was my father, Norman Sydney Lobley.
