The Conn family of Lincolnshire.
David Alderson Conn
The IGI records 115 members of the Conn family in Lincolnshire. This is third only to Yorkshire (262) and Durham (194), with London excluded. There are several very early records from the 1550s with the latest one being dated 1834. The families appear to have died out in Lincolnshire, for the first record in the censuses is in 1891 when a family moves down from York. Because of the scatter -gun approach of the IGI it is always difficult to produce family trees, so I have plotted the records geographically. It seems that there are perhaps three geographical areas where the Conn families have lived, and I have called them the Lincoln group, the Horncastle group and the Sleaford group. I have been unable to find anyone who has researched these families, so at the moment only the IGI records are given here. It should be noted that although the Cathedral and castle at Lincoln City are Norman in origin, Lincoln was essentially a Danish settlement, and it is thought that the Conn name had it's origins with the Danes along with the other major Conn families of Yorkshire.
