In trying to stretch family tree out further by locating father of Nicholas VIPOND namely Thomas VIPOND, I experienced a bit of difficulty as follows, because there are two distinct separate families around about the same time, both with children named Thomas (sigh). And Lead Mining - what a dreadful occupation that must have been.
