John Howe & Mary Richardson
I was wanting information on my wife's 3 x Great-grandparents John Howe born 1791 in Wigton. Also his wife Mary Richardson born in Sebergham 1791 they were married in Sebergham on the 28/5/1814. I know he was a Watch and Clockmaker and had a place of work at Barwise Row, Wigton in 1828 and by 1848 West Street, Wigton. They had 6 children Stephen 1815, Ann 1817, John 1819, Richardson 1822, William 1824 and Joseph 1826. Any information pre 1814 would be a great help. John

Their children were Jane bap 1816 WIGTON, Thomas bc 1821 OOC, John c1835 Wigton, Elizabeth c1826 LANCASHIRE, & Francis Marshall c1832 IRELAND (probably DROGHEDA).

Hannah died in 1871 at the home of her son Francis (Frank) Marshall Moore in CHORLTON, Lancs. Does anyone know where THOMAS was born c1796 & who his parents were?

red mail Black a moor
My great grandfather was the landlord of the Black a Moor Wigton at the turn of the 20th century . His name was Edward Lockhart. His wife was a Mary Jane Barton. Unfortunately Mary Jane died while they had the pub.I reckon he ended up with one of the bar staff .Annie Scott born Wigton who was considerably younger than him ,on the 1911 census they had moved to Toxteth and she had had my Grandmother who was born with polio. My nan Mary Lockhart Scott ended up in homes and hospitals .Annie had 2 more children George Edward and Elpeth both now passed..I am trying to find where Annie came from or where she ended up. Edward Lockhart died in 1942 in Liverpool.Annie must have been born Wigton app 1886.. Cheers Dave

Hi I am currently interested in finding out as much info as possible on the Banks family that lived at Highmoor Mansion in Wigton from 1830 to 1920. I also wish to find further info on the family who lived at Highmoor before the Banks Family. I would like to obtain old photo's, documents or general stories heard about the mansion. I already have a large amount of information from several books and online resources, however I would be interested in finding out what happened to the artefacts and furnishings that were sold off between 1912 and 1917 when the Head of the family went Bankrupt.
