village of Fulbeck in Lincolnshire England

village of Fulbeck

Many of the cottages in the village of Fulbeck were owned by craftsmen. The Fane family owned most of the land, but they did not own most of the cottages. In many villages most of the cottages were owned by the main landowner. Fulbeck was an agricultural village in the eighteenth and nineteenth century. The enclosure of 1805 lists the three landowners as Henry Fane, William Capp and Thomas Capp. It was part of the Newark registration district in 1837.

predators of the Jurassic seas
The first skeleton of a plesiosaur was described in 1719 by William Stukely (a famous archaeologist). His fossil was a partial skeleton found at Fulbeck, Nottinghamshire. However he had no idea that it was an unknown animal, suggesting it might be part of a porpoise or crocodile. Not until a century later in the 1820s were plesiosaurs first recognised as a distinct group of reptiles. more information
