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

red mail Hayton
I am researching my family history of my father. He was Pattinson Hayton (1916 -2000 b. Carlisle), his father was Amos Hayton (1874 ? 1955 b. Wigton), mother Annie Smith (1888 ? 1975 b. Silloth). His Grandfather was Pattinson Hayton (1821 ? 1882b. Bowness), Grand mother Jane Hayton (1832 -1905 b. Little Bampton). Jane Hayton had been married previously to an Irving; I cannot find her maiden name or any reference to the first marriage. I think I also have his great grand parents, Amos andBarbra Beaty married 1808 in Wigton. I was always lead to believe that Pattinson originated from a grandmotherÕs maiden name, this I now feel is incorrect as I have come across quite a few Pattinson Haytons . It would be great to find out the link.
