I am researching a clergyman with a wonderful name for any researcher - Robinson Shuttleworth Barton! Thanks to his parents! What I would like to try to find out is some information about a reference I have found in the Huntingdonshire Archives dated 7 Sep 1836. This document indicates that Robinson Barton applied for a period of leave from his benefice "on account of the actual illness of your wife and children." One John, Bishop of Lincoln licensed Robinson Shuttleworth Barton, "Vicar of Alconbury within the County of Huntingdon, within our Diocese, to be absent from your said Benefice until 31st day of December 1838." He was given this leave on account of "you keeping the Vicarage House and offices in good repair." Does anyone have any idea how I might find out if there are other records from this time still in existence that shed some light on this illness in the family? Is there correspondence kept by the Diocese or Church of England that might help? Was there some epidemic or other cause of sickness about in this area of England at the time??
