Mary Scates, soldier father.
Mary Scates was baptised in 1820, Nov 11, daughter of William & Ann, Abode Whinney Fell. William is listed as Soldier; Whinney Fell appears now as mainly moorland with a possible address at 54.910172,-2.668307, from
I have not found a local marriage between William & Ann but as soldiers needed permission this may not have happened.
However a soldier could be militia, army or retired.
Is there any information about military in this area at this time?
Ann remarried in Feltham 1824 and in the 1851 census lists birth place as Winnifell, which suggests she met William in Cumberland. From information at death in 1857 (GRO age of 64) a birth date of c. 1793.
Any suggestions welcome!
