Allcock,Morton,Kingerley connections at Parsons Drove

Surnames: Allcock,Morton,Kingerley
Having knocked down a brick wall concerning the maiden name of my Great Grandfather, I feel that my search for this line takes me to Parson's Drove. What I have are the weddings for two sisters in Whaplode Drove - just down the road but it might be 100 miles away when it comes to county borders! The weddings are:-

10 February 1840 Joseph FARROW and Rebecca ALLCOCK Witnesses Richard Alcock, Elizabeth Farrow,William Alcock

19 October 1849 John BAILEY and Susannah ALLCOCK, Witnesses William B Adams, Rebecca Farrow

John and Susannah named their son William Morton Bailey which when added to his birth certificate which stated that Susannah's maiden name was MORTON, led to a 20 year brick wall until I decided to go through the Whaplode Drove Parish Registers!

In both cases the father is one John ALLCOCK Labourer.who was found on the 1851 census with John and Susannah Bailey at Whaplode Drove. I have been advised that the Cambridgshire FHS Baptism Index has births to John Allcock and Hannah at Parson Drove as follows:-

John b. 1812
Twins Mary & William, born and died 1814
Richard K. b. 1816
Rebecca b. 1818
Mary A. b. 1820
William b. 1822
Susannah b. 1824
Maria b. 1826, d. 1835, and for her, Mary and John the middle initial K. is given for the father

Further back in time, the IGI shows that a John Martin Alcock married a Rebecca KINGERLEY on 20 October 1789 at Parson Drove, and that this couple had a son John Kingerley Allcock born in Guyhirn. If John Martin Allcock was in fact John MORTON ALLCOCK, then this could be the source of my Morton name.

In the Burials Index, there is a Morton Allcock, infant, who died at Parson Drove in 1809, but no parents are recorded.

In addition the 1841 census index shows some of the above Allcocks at

Allcock Hannah 50 Parson Drove, HO107/78/6 Folio 4A
Allcock Richard 25 Parson Drove, HO107/78/6 Folio 4A

Allcock William 19 Parson Drove, HO 107/78/6 Folio 6A
Allcock Susannah 17 Parson Drove, HO 107/78/6 Folio 6A

Now, it's a tall order I know, but if SKS could look these up for me then I would be extremely grateful.

It would be even better if anyone recognises this family!

I have a copy of the Whaplode Drove Parish Registers, and have access to South Holland area censuses at my local Library, so if you have anyone who wandered in the opposite direction I will happy to look them up.
