Warwickshire 4 Pickard’s Pink Pages for Warwickshire is a treasure trove of online documents and links to many others. It hosts the Warwickshire census transcripts referred to above. A site very well worth visiting.
Warwickshire 5 The Littlebeams website for Warwickshire history and genealogy is the gateway to this site and to pages relevant to the Warwickshire villages of Cherington and Stourton, Farnborough, Snitterfield and Stockton.

Cyndi’s List is one of the largest directories of websites such as this one. It covers genealogy and local history worldwide, including hundreds of thousands of links. Inevitably as time passes some of these links are broken and not renewed, however, a new web location is sometimes findable from information given on the content.
In 2018 a particular problem is links to the thousands of pages on Rootsweb. Part of Ancestry, Rootsweb has over many years offered free hosting for genealogists and family historians, but is suffering from being hacked in late 2017 and family historians may have to wait a long time before all the content is back on line. All the Littlebeams pages were hosted by them until the “crash”. Updates on the situation are published on the Rootsweb home page.

ACCOUNTS OF THOMAS ELKINGTON 1758-
When this website was set up in 2005, three pdf downloads were made available. They contain the most important content on the Accounts pages, only lacking a few minor updates made since then. If you would like to save them, download all three and put them in the same folder, as they are bookmarked and contain links to each other. The three sections are: (1) Introduction to the accounts with a list of personal and place names recorded, (1a) Thomas’s ancestry, and (2) Images of the accounts, with annotated transcriptions.
Also of interest is a leaflet on Knibb clockmakers, originally of Claydon, adjoining Farnborough. They were probably of a family that gave their name to fields mentioned in the accounts -
