      Hello Dennis, I am descended also from Martin Atkin,who is my great-great paternal grandfather. His parents were Robert Adkin (1764-1827) and Ann Atkin(perhaps maiden name of Ann Kemp) (1768-1851) Martin's spouse was Mary Jackson (1804-1881)Their daughter, Martha(1845-1923) is my great-grandmother. Her daughter,Jane(1874-1960) is my grandmother.

      I have no information back from Robert Adkin and Mary Moor, other than their names.

      I hope this information is helpful to you.

      With regard to Robert ATKIN of West Keal connection with Dunston, I would need to search all the surrounding villages and/or find a relative of his in Dunston and then West Keal to establish that we have the correct Robert ATKIN. This may take some time to reveal, but necessary.

      Robert ATKIN's marriage to Mary MOOR - this is purely based on the assumption that Robert ATKIN Jnr - baptised 22 July 1764 in Dunston, is your lineage. As I said before, Dunston is quite a distance from West Keal and I was trying to establish we had the right family of ATKINs. I included the Dunston family in the tree as I did not want to lose sight of it, when and if, I took up this lineage again on your behalf. What I really wanted was a Will mentioning other siblings and/or a burial of Robert's siblings/mother and father to ascertain the correct lineage in West Keal. It may be that Robert Jnr went to West Keal on his own, in which case it will be harder to prove.

      When you get back before the 1841/1851 census and pre-civil registration which began on 1 July 1837, it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to prove a line beyond doubt.

      0n the IGI there is an extracted record for the baptism of Martin, son of Robert and Mary Atkin, on 3 October 1802 at West Keal. This seems to fit with the age and birthplace given by Martin, father of Jonathan, on various census.

      The IGI has a marriage of Robert Atkin and Ann Kemp 25 May 1789 at West Keal. I can confirm the year with the Lincolnshire FHS marriage index 1754-1812 for Bolingbroke deanery, but not the date.

      And how lucky are you that Ann lived till she's appeared on the 1851 census with two of her sons?

      A Robert Atkin is buried, aged 62, 27 November 1827 in West Keal.

      Ann's burial age of 84 in 1851 and census age of 83 in 1851, seem to 'match' the baptism of Ann, daughter of Jonathan and Ann Kemp on 31 May 1767 in West Keal. (Baptism source IGI)

      I would not like to say that the Robert Atkin who married Ann is the one baptised in Dunston in 1764.

      At the moment I would say there is no connection, between your Robert and the one born in Dunston, but I have been proved wrong before.

      However, the burial of a Robert Atkin, aged 71, in Nocton on 24 January 1837 might mean that I'm right, as Nocton is about a mile away from Dunston.

      While on the subject of Robert Atkin, the father of the Robert who married Ann Kemp, I hope your records don't say he was born in 1761, nor that they say he was baptised in Wickenby Fen in 1682, nor that he was living in Louth, aged 80 in 1841. All those records are patently wrong when you're talking about him being the father of someone born about 1765. (Well, the Wickenby Fen baptism is a possibility but a highly improbable one.)
