red mail MUMBERSON, Alfred - Guard at W. Castle
I have an impressive photo of a young man Alfred MUMBERSON. On the back is written - Guard at Windsor Castle. I don't know the age of the photo but assume it was taken after 1900. Maybe quite a bit later. There is other handwriting, but in a different hand and not legible. I didn't find the name in the 1911 census for Windsor Castle. Alfred is/was from Cumberland. My files have an Alfred Mumberson born @1879 in Aspatria, Cumberland. I don't know if the young man is the photo is this Alfred or a later relation. Would appreciate any help in learning more about this photo. Thank you. Judy
red mail Thomas Hetherington a shoemaker.
on my gt.grandfathers marriage certificate in 1868 his father is named as Thomas Hetherington(deceased-a shoemaker).He was named after his father.His mother was Zillah Saul.I think his father was born c.1820 or 1821.The only one I can find on the 1841 census, listed as a shoemaker was a twin,with a brother called George, living in the sub-registration district of Abbey Holme,Reg. district of Wigton.I have found no evidence that Thomas Hetherington was married to Zillah Saul.The baby was born at Westnewton and Zillah Saul came from Bromfield.I can find no further mention of him in the later census.Any ideas accepted gratefully.
red mail armstrong
I am trying to find the baptism or birth records of Matthew Armstrong who had lived in Aspatria, but was married in Longtown in 1771. He married Jane Ferguson of Arthuret in November 1771 by Bishop's Licence, but his date of birth and place, cannot at present be traced in Cumbrian Archives. We also seem to have a connection with Aiglegill, near Hayton. Can anyone help?

red mail Murphy, Aspatria
My grandfather, John Robert Murphy was born in Aspatria around 1902. It is known that his sister married into the Cund family and moved to Leicestershire and the midlands prior to WW2. There is also a shipping connection out of Workington, and some (possible) shipbuilding connection in the west cumberland/solway region. I have tracked down Cunds/Murphys to the States and Australia, but would be interested to find out more local interest.
