One-Name Study

 

The Inskips have been in Maulden, Bedfordshire since at least the 1760ís when John Inskip married Elizabeth Parker on Christmas Day 1766.   John was a tenant farmer for John Russell, Duke of Bedford. The Duke had acquired land around Maulden in 1738 and was experimenting with new more productive agricultural techniques.   The soil in the area was particularly good for market gardening and the Inskips were a family of Market Gardeners.  John paid the Duke 10/- (shillings or 50p in today's money) in 1775 to farm 4 acres.
