red mail Kirkbride family
The IGI has an entry for Appleby in Westmorland that a Thomas Kirkbride married a Barbara Warcup 2 May 1720. I am interested in someone called Warcup Kirkbride, and these seem likely candidates for his parents, but I have no proof. Warcup Kirkbride lived from circa 1720 to 1804 and married twice, first to Margaret Bowman in 1748 and then to Isabel Dawson in 1787, He lived for some time at Startforth, but also was in Lancashire at Walton on the Hill. Any information to confirm a baptism for Warcup Kirkbride welcome. many thanks

red mail Fawcett/Appleby
Looking for any information that may help me to identify my ggrandfather;s Fawcett family. The only information I have is from his son's birth certificate which states that he is John William Fawcett,56 in 1870 (Born 1814), Farmer from Appleby, Westmoreland. He supposedly married Annie Brown nee Gallagher, 25 July 1869 in Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia, however, I cannot find any record of the marriage. I can find no record of entry to Australia, no death certificate or any other entry that may help identify his family.
