William Spybey is a very likely a ‘missing link’ between various strands of the family. Having obtained his marriage certificate we know that he was born c.1836-7 in Lambley Nottingham and that his father was called Alfred Spybey, who was a labourer. Alfred was deceased at the time of William’s marriage. Lambley parish records lists a William Spibey, born in 1836, whose father was Alfred and mother Anne. Anne is likely to be Anne Marriot baptised Woodborough on 5 March 1815. Only one Alfred is recorded in the Lambley Parish Birth Records - a certain Alfred Spyby born 3rd May 1812. Alfred Spyby is listed as Frederick Spiby in certain records. Alfred Spyby / Frederick Spiby’s genealogy can be traced back to the early 1700s - to Thomas Spiby / Thomas Spieby born c.1709, Lambley.
