red mail Frances Bowman
My relative Frances Bowman appears on the 1841 census with a family called Armstrong. I believe Nancy/Ann Armstrong is her daughter and my 3rd great grandmother. Frances was born in Cumberland around 1795 and I do not know if Bowman is her married or maiden name as there is no husband listed. She lived to a good age, as in 1881 she was living with her great grand daughter Elizabeth Whitfield in Allendale Northumberland.These are all Allendale lead mining families. Has anyone any idea of Frances maiden name or who she married?

red mail Kirkpatrick in Alston, Garrigill & Cumwhitton
ALL the Kirkpatricks in these three villages, throughout the 18th C and 19th until the end of Lead-mining, appear to be my relatives. Is that the case for anyone reading this entry. Some went to Carlisle, while my immediate forbears came to Lancashire - see my entry for Little Lever and Ainsworth. The surnames Noble, Barren, Shield, White, Hoden, Vipond, and Gargate are significant to this time in Cumberland. I really seek the origins of George Kirkpatrick (ca 1665) who married Eleanor (Elenor) Noble at Arthuret in 1695. I guess that this may have been a"run-away" marriage OUT of Scotland.
