Up until now, I have mentioned all (or nearly all) the articles I have found. Since there were 50 articles about the surname Whimpey in the 1870s, I have chosen just a few to feature. Since there were several people in the family named John and Joseph, I have included their birth and death years after their names.
This first article is about the death of Richard Bramley. My great grandfather Joseph Whimpey (1848-1919) and his brother John (1843-1926) were present.
The next article is about when Joseph Whimpey (1855-1895) gave evidence at the inquest into a sudden death.
The next article was about a quoits match. Although the first name is not given, this was probably John Whimpey (1818-1895)
My great grandfather, Joseph Whimpey (1848-1919) had a sister Elizabeth, who married Joseph Bannister Stow. They had a son named John Whimpey Stow. My final article is his funeral notice.
