Castor House Estate and Sir Richard Winfrey's Family

NOTE for Winfrey Researchers: The son of Sir Richard Winfrey (1858-1944), Richard Pattison ("R.P." or "Pat") Winfrey, who corresponded with Winfrey Family researchers, David O. Winfrey and Robley E. Winfrey, wrote in one of his letters that the Peterborough, Lincolnshire WINFREYS had been in the Long Sutton area of South Lincolnshire since 1670. He also wrote that they, like most Englishmen, had never bothered to trace their ancestry because they knew that they had been there for centuries. I believe they are definitely related to the John Winfrey (d. 1573) Family of Lincolnshire that was traced by the Kinseek and Kintracers firms that Robley E. Winfrey hired to research the Winfrey Family Line in England. It is interesting to note that the family names of "Richard" and "Charles" in the John Winfrey Family are repeated in the Sir Richard Winfrey Family line. A new book (2004) called The CAMUS Project (The History of Castor, Ailsworth, Marholm, Upton and Sutton - and the Milton Estates) by William Burke has a special chapter written by Claire Winfrey, wife of Ian Winfrey the g-grandson of Sir Richard Winfrey in which she details the history of Castor House and its occupants. There are several pictures. Other Winfreys that are listed as contributors are: Mr. & Mrs. Ben Winfrey, Drs. Peter & Rebecca Winfrey and Jay Winfrey & family. ISBN 0-9547881-1-7 (Paperback) ISBN 0-9547881-0-9 (Hardback) The book is available in PDF form online. The following url will take you to Chapter 8 The Castor House Estate: (This is a intensive PDF file and may take a while to load, so be patient.)
