This site is very new and is still very much a work in progress. I am updating my trees and databases and I will be adding much to this site in the coming months. If you find any errors in my trees I hope you will feel free to get in touch and I will make the necessary corrections. If you have any information that you think would be of interest, get in touch through the email link as I am always interested in any new information on the family's listed on this site.

A new Forum is now available for discussion and the sharing of information. https://dickinsonfamilygeneology.com/smf/index.php

Henry Kables Grave Windsor
On 18 March 1783, Kable was convicted of burglary at Thetford, Norfolk, England and sentenced to death. His sentence was commuted to transportation for fourteen years to the United States, however, the American Revolution made transportation to America impossible and Henry was returned to the Norwich Castle gaol.

At Norwich Castle gaol, Henry met and began a relationship with Susannah Holmes, who gave birth in prison to a son Henry. Holmes had been sentenced to death on 22 March 1784 after being found guilty of theft. Her sentence was also commuted and she was sentenced to transportation to the United States colonies for a term of 14 years.
