red mail Sancton
Hannah Sancton. My gt gt gt grandmother was born around 1788 (presumably to the Cockermouth family but I have not checked this Parish register for that - yet!) She married John Townley 16.02.1811 in Manchester Cathedral (one of those massed weddings no doubt!) and brought up a large family in Hulme, Manchester, in the 19th century. In 1861 she was a shopkeeper in Booth Street - (now slap in the middle of Manchester University!) aged 73. 24 Sanctons on 1841 census, (7 Marys, 3 Sarahs,  Elizabeths. Mostly women... name died out?) Only 3 on the 1881 census 2 in Preston, 1 in Bromley). The census shows the Cockermouth Sanctons living off the income from houses. Probably bought by the Woolen Manufacturer? The local history library will have stuff no doubt! After a google search I found - Inscription on the grave of Eleanor Sancton Location - Allerdale Council Cemetery . Date of birth is , date of death is 30/06/1862 Plan location : A. Plot no : 739?. In Memory of Eleanor, daughter of Edward Sancton of Cockermouth Woollen Manufacturer who died June 30th 1862 Aged 69 Years Also of Sarah his daughter who died Feby. 17th 1874 Aged 83 Years Also of Mary his daughter who died Jany. 19th 1888 Aged 80 Years. I have access to the UK census and noted that the surname SANCTON, and from folk still around in 1841 it seems to originate uniquely in Cockermouth! I saw a couple of Sanctons had moved to Ormskirk and Liverpool too. Oh, BTW - upset to see about the floods you have had - 2009.. Dave
red mail Johnston
I am searching for information on Janet Johnston who was my g-g-grandmother who migrated to Australia on the Wistow Hall 1885. Her parents were Stephen Johnston(e)and Hannah Collister(Colester) who were married in 1844 Cockermouth. She came out with her daughter Hannah Payne Johnston aged 17. It seems she was unmarried but later married Thomas Bell in Ravenswood, Queensland. Hannah died aged 32 after giving birth to 5 children in 4 years, with pneumonia. Two of the children died when young. Janet (according to my mother aged 93) was a nurse or midwife. She raised her daughter's children, one of whom was my grandfather James Lane.

There is a child, Richard Lowthion, on freebmd but I don't know who his parents were. I'm an historian, not a family member but I so want to find out about him.

red mail Bethwaite family of Cockermouth
My great-great-great grandfather was THOMAS BETHWAITE, b.1844, who went on to have 11 children with his wife RUTH HAWKINS. We are decended from his son DIXON BETHWAITE who himself had 9 children. We know that THOMAS BETHWAITE (1844) was the illigitimate son of DOROTHY DIXON (b.1837 circa) and her employer but can find no record of who this man was or the origins of the surname. Does anyone know of a male BETHWAITE in their family tree who may have fathered THOMAS in the mid 1840s?
red mail Graham's in Cumberland.
Knowing that there are an awful lot of Graham's in Cumberland I am hoping that there is someone who can help throw light on to some of my ancesters. I know that John Graham 1830 (Cockermouth) married Ann Williamson 1832 (Caldbeck) on 2nd Jan 1858. I believe that John's father was Joseph (1807) (Winscales) married Elizabeth Brough (abt 1807) at Bowness on Solway on 18th Dec 1828. Joseph's father was also called John abt 1781 married Jane Proud abt 1781 on the 18th Sept 1803. It is here that the line disappears. Did John & Jane Graham have any other children besides John Graham 1807? There is a possibility that there were two dughters, Sarah 1826 & Ann 1841 but either these dates are wrong or they are not their children!!! Is there anyone who can help on this line.

red mail Casson's of Cockermouth
I am rather hoping that someone in the various Casson families might come to my rescue. I have a William Casson born in or around Cockermouth, somewhere between 1782 and 1786. He married Elizabeth (no maiden name) in 1803 and they had 7 children. I would like to know if this William fits in with anyone else’s Family Tree and who his parents were. I think I have found this William in 1851 as a widower and lodger living at 73 Kirkgate, Cockermouth. His DoB is given as 1783. Also in 1841 he was in Brewery Yard, Cockermouth with Elizabeth (I think she was one of his daughters), Mary his daughter in law and baby Mary his granddaughter. This time his DoB is given as 1786. Any help would be much appreciated. Regards Lyn

I would love any information on John's parents or other forebears, also the Sancton family. Many thanks.

Surnames Linden & Swift In Cumberland and Durham
My Great Great Grandmother was Mary Jane Swift (later Tuffy) (b.1869 Cockermouth. d.1954 Kidderminster). Her father was called Joseph Swift (a coalminer) and he married a Bridget Linden in 1866 in Cockermouth. My Gt. Gt. Grandmother was born on 31st December 1869. Sometime between the time she was born and the census of 1871 her father died. I found her mother (Bridget Swift) living with her two daughters as a lodger with a family with the name Ropson. So far I have been unable to find any trace of Bridget and her two daughters Louisa & Mary Jane on the 1881 census. I'm beginning to suspect that Bridget Swift died young aswell, which left her two young children orphaned. On the 1954 death certificate of my Great Great Grandmother Mary Jane Tuffy (nee Swift) it says that her maiden name was Hussible, but when I found her wedding certificate it said that her maiden name was Swift. I have also managed to find her birth certificate which was registered in Cockermouth. On the wedding certificate for Kidderminster in 1892 one of the witnesses to her marriage to Thomas Tuffy was a Rose Ann Hussible. I thought at first that maybe Mary Jane's mother (Bridget) had remarried, but Rose Ann Hussible's mother was called Mary Hussible. I have had no luck locating a death certificate for Bridget Swift (formerly Linden). I'm currently waiting for the rest of the 1861 cesus to be put on line so I can find out a bit more information about her family background. According to the marriage certificate for Cockermouth 1866, Joseph Swift was a coalminer and so was his father (also called Joseph Swift). Bridget Linden's father was called James Linden (he was a labourer). I haven't managed to find the death certificate of Joseph Swift, but on the 1871 census where I found his wife & children it says she was a widow. He would have only been in his early 30's when he died. It may be that he died down a coal mine? But this is only a theory I have no evidence as yet to back it up. Any information would be of great interest Best Wishes Kevin

John Henry CONLEY joined the army in Warrington Lancashire where he married Annie BARNETT in 1899 - John made the army his career but as far as I know never saw active service as he was too old for WWI - he was a WOII Quartermaster Sergeant.
