From RootsWeb correspondence[1]:

Jane Ansell married John Wing, surveyor to the Duke of Bedford, in Ingoldsby
Lincs in 1784. She was born in Witham on the Hill in 1753. She had elder
brothers John, who went to Ormsby, and Ben, who became a grazier and
maltster in Thorney Abbey, where the Wings (who were also almanack writers)
lived. Jane's father was John Ansell of Witham, who married twice, and both
wives (Abigail, mother of the children, and Catherine) are buried in
Thorney. The Ansells appear to be yeomen farmers and often churchwardens
for several generationa at Witham on the Hill, though they probably
originated from Kirkby Underwood, where a Richard is having children - and
possibly a direct ancestor - in the 1580s.
