John & Sarah Dring UK to California/Missouri
I have very sketchy information about my Dring ancestors. I know Margaret Dring was born in London on July 18, 1821. Her parents were John and Sarah Dring. Margaret married Henry Layland Knight born October 18, 1817 in Manchester, England. I don't know where they were married. I know they were in Grundy County, Missouri, USA in 1845 where their second child was born. Her name was Emilia Layland Knight. Margaret and Henry are on the MO census in 1850 with one child listed. I don't know where John Dring was in 1850. In 1852, John Dring, with his daughter and son-in-law, lead a 2 wagon train across the country to California arriving in San Francisco in 1852. John and Sarah Dring disappear from California at that point. I can't find them on census or any other thing I can think of but Margaret and Henry stay in California. Recently, I found two John Drings and a George Dring in Franklin County, Missouri on the 1870 census. I haven't had time to follow up as yet but plan to as soon as I can. I am guessing that after John and Sarah went to CA with Margaret and Henry they returned to Missouri. I am also hoping to cross-reference this family with the Layland-Knight families in Manchester, eventually! So far, I haven't found any connections with information posted on the Dring boards but maybe soon. If you have any information or insight, I would look forward to hearing from you. Respectfully, Pam Hupner

Family 5

Henry & Elizabeth Bridlington, Yorks,
Henry DRING (bc1785-1790, d before 1837) and his wife Ann had four daughters:
Elizabeth Ann (bapt 14 Dec 1816, Bridlington Priory)
Mary Calvert (bapt 3 Mar 1818, Bridlington Priory)
Henrietta Todd (bapt 30 Apr 1819, Bridlington Priory)
Jane (no baptismal date known)
Henry is given as an attorney at each baptism with a home address given only as Bridlington Quay.  He is listed in the Gray's Inn Law Lists from 1814 to 1823.  There's nothing further about him either before or after those dates. Ann is probably/possibly Ann TODD who married a Henry DRING 30 Dec 1815 at St Mary's Hull.  However this is a patron submission an I've not been able to check the original registers to verify this.
Elizabeth Ann married Robert Durdant PEAD Mar 1846 at St Marylebow, Cheapside, London. Robert died Q3 1847, Isle of Thanet, Kent. Elizabeth then married John Kircheval 6 July 1848 at St Mary's Church, Newark.  They had at least two daus and lived in Balderton, Notts
Mary Calvert married Henry STRINGER 22 Feb 1842 at Bridlington
Henrietta Todd married James Charles COLLINGRIDGE Q1 1848 St Pancras RD.  Their descendents are known.
Jane married John HARVEY of Newark-on-Trent on Monday 1 Dec 1845 at St Mary's, Bridlington.
I'd very much appreciate it if anyone can add anything to the family or connect with Henry. CHARANI

Family 7

Drings of Yorkshire
My great grandmother was Mary Alice DRING was born 1859 in Driffield, Yorkshire. She was the second daughter of William DRING (1830-1874) and his first wife Susan/Susannah PETCH (1837-1866). William was a brushmaker. Other places associated with his name are Sutton, Hutton Cranswick, Watton? and Houghton Beckwith, Lincs. Could his family have migrated north to Yorkshire? William's second wife was Martha JACKSON (1840?-1881). William and Martha had 3 sons and a daughter born between 1868 and 1873. Interestingly I think the Kenneth DRING mentioned by Laurena (entry Aug 2008) may be descended from William's second marriage. Although I live in Nottingham I have no evidence to show that my DRING's originated from here. Elizabeth

Drings of Whitby/Liverpool
My 4 x Great Grandad MARK DRING born 1796 Whitby married MARY BURTON in 1822. My 3 x Great Grandad HENRY DRING born 1836 Liverpool married MARY JANE ? in 1855. My 2 x Great Grandad JOHN HENRY DRING born 1862 Liverpool married HARRIET BURNS in 1884. My Great Grandmother ALICE DRING born 19 January 1891 Liverpool married ALBERT WINDSOR. I have only recently discovered my DRING family originates from Whitby. Please contact me if any of my relatives correspond to your family tree. Sue O'Brien

Drings of Australia
We are searching for GGGrandmothers parents. GGGrandmothers name was Elizabeth DRING, she was born on the 15th August 1857 in Taradale, Victoria, Australia. On her birth certificate it states two other children one deceased, one living. Her mothers name was Sarah WILLIAMS and father was William DRING. These ancestors are a mystery to us, there are many family stories that GGGrandma was an orphan, although Grandfather used to tell us stories about their old house at Metcalfe (near Castlemaine, Victoria). I have searched high and low for this couple.... hopefully i may have some luck here?
