      That then takes us back another generation, to finding descendants of Jonathan's siblings. Baptisms for some of Martin and Mary's children can be found on the IGI as extracted - and therefore reliable except for transcription errors - records. Baptisms for Spilsby CofE parish church on the IGI only go up to 1845, so if you have a local LDS FHC you will need to order in the film of the PRs to check for later years. (Ordering in films is the only way I can access similar records for my family until my next visit to Lincolnshire Archives which might be this year, next year, sometime...... )

      If you haven't already done so, you'll need to work your way through from the 1841 census where you'll find Martin and Mary Atkin and eight of their children (including Frances who you don't seem to have on your list) living in Spilsby, through to the 1911 census (the latest one released in England and Wales). The 1851 census onwards gives the alleged birthplace of people - sometimes it's the first place someone can remember living, sometimes it's just any old place they want to say, and sometimes it is accurate.

      I would assume this is Frances' burial - 1 July 1841, Spilsby, aged 5.

      And talking of deaths I think you have the wrong one for Mary nee Jackson, as there is a burial of a Mary Atkin, aged 55, 24 July 1860 in Spilsby. Martin seems to have the condition of (an extremely badly written) widower on the 1861 census. And it clearly says widower on the 1871 census.

      Using FreeBMD in conjunction with the census, you should be able to find most of the marriages that took place. The women are perhaps a little more difficult to find on the census after they've married. However I think that Martha (born c1845) married Henry Jefferies in 1870 before they moved to Streatham in 1871.

      I've spent about an hour trying to find Ann, Jane, and Elizabeth on the census after they've left home but without success. Mary Ann is still living at home in 1871, but can't find her after that. Might have more success with them once the Spilsby district marriages 1851-1870 get transcribed to the Lincolnshire 1837+ Marriage Index. (That's a volunteer project so I'd check back in about three, then six, months time.)
