Have just come across your website on the internet when looking for Flixborough gravestones. It may be that the dates below are before gravestones were used, or have weathered beyond ability to decipher.
- John died 23 Aug 1607 Flixborough - churchwarden of the old church in 1605
- Humfrey died 1623/3 Flixborough - churchwarden of old church in 1612 and 1622/3
- Thomas died 26 November 1682 Flixbrough - churchwarden of old church 1665/6

Old church (still called All Saints) was replaced in 1789 by the "new" church in current Flixborough. The "old" church now appears to be a pile of stones (as viewed on Google earth) about 1/2 mile SSE of current church. Not marked on current OS maps, but is marked on 1888 map as site of old church.

Huntington family appeared to move from Flixborough to Burton upon Stather about 1700 or shortly afterwards. They then moved S to Scunthorpe, and then one limb to Airmyn (3 gravestones in churchyard there), one Eastoft (1 gravestone in churchyard) and one Swinefleet (graveyard completely overgrown for the old stones, but so far none found).
