Have recently come across your site which I
found especially interesting as some of my ancestors originate from
Cottingham. My 2xgt grandfather Frederick Edward Vickers was born there in
1859, his parents were Samuel Vickers and Ann Loveday who married there in
1853. Both died in 1902 and are buried at St.Mary Magdalene. On the 1881
census the family were living at Sir.W Brookes cottage (late Norman
Lodge), does this still stand. Frederick moved to Hucknall, Notts in the
late 1870's where he married and that's where my father was born.
Do you know of any Vickers families in the
area? The spelling varies from generation to generation.

Lovely to hear from you. Iíll
pop your message on the site, and maybe someone will know more about Sir W
Brookes cottage/Norman Lodge. Not one Iíve heard of. Do you know
whereabouts it was?
I attach a spreadsheet showing
the Vickersí that were in the village in 1841 and 1901. I canít actually
find any on the 1881 Census though, which is strange if you say you have
them listed. Do you have a copy of the Census return you have taken the
info from? It may help to clear up the mystery!
All the very best,
