Hi Ken, Doesn't time fly, I cannot believe that it is two years since I posted that message. I now have an extensive family tree going back to my 6 x great grandfather Timothy born in the 17th century.
You are right about the name Crispe, which was John's mother's maiden name (Elizabeth Crispe) Interestingly the name lives on as I have found a third cousin called John Crisp Lunn in Louisiana, a descendant of Thomas John Lunn. I was interested to learn about Abraham Lunn. Abraham was a family name of my Lunn line in earlier generations, although I have not come across this one: could be a cousin of John's perhaps. John was briefly a Unitarian minister as I found him listed in an historical document c.1859. Do you have any more information about Abraham, Ken such as who he was lodging with? I would also be interested to know if you have uncovered any origin of our family name. My theory is that it is Danish and that perhaps we arrived with the Viking invasion. I also have a third cousin in Norfolk who is a family historian. She has researched the meaning of the name Lunn, which she says stands for 'wild man of the fens' I would love to hear if you have any further info Ken.
