thompson family
looking for info on James and Isabella married in the 1840's and Robert and isabella aged about 50 on 1841 census can't find any Bentham marriages on the IGI. Not sure if it is high or low Bentham are they next to each other?
red mail Richard Sanderson 1813
Lookonig for details of Richard Sanderson and Ruth Graves ancestry.
I am trying to trace Jane Isabella Johnson who married John William Barry. I cannot find her birth or marriage (her husband who came from Ireland has a surname variously listed as Buros, Beryl, Ferry, Barrie)! They feature in the 1871 and 1881 censuses in Manchester with Sarah Ann their daughter whose birth certificate I luckily have.

Any information regarding Leaks from this area
red mail Deans of Greystonegill
Robert and Elizabeth Dean were married in Clapham in 1804, and lived there for some years before moving to Greystonegill near High Bentham, where their later children were born. Their daughter Margaret married Edmund Sykes and they moved to Accrington. Another daughter Mary Ann, married Thomas Taylor from Tatham Fells. I am keen to trace the origins of Robert Dean, and Deborah Dean, possibly his sister, who married William Miller in 1808 at Clapham.
