Armstrongs Brampton Cumberland
« on: Wednesday 16 November 05 16:18 GMT (UK) »
Is any one tracing the Armstrong's from Brampton?

Thomas Armstrong born 1865 at Bewcastle. He is a coke Drawer in 1901
Annie his wife
Children  Mary Armstrong b c1886
               Sarah Armstrong b1888
               Charters Armstrong b 1892
               Cissie Armstrong b1893
                Lily Armstrong b 1897
                Margaret Armstrong b1900

The children, all girls, were all born in the Brampton area. Wonder if they went on to have any boys!!!!

My Gt Gt Grandmother Charters Armstrong (grandmother of the Charters  mentioned above) was Thomas's mother and I would be interested in sharing information to anyone researching the family.

Hi,
Thanks for your e-mail.

I do not think our Armstrongs are related at this stage.

I see you have a Dodgson - have you looked at the Dodgson Manuscript which lists loads of Dodgsons and related families in that area?
In your search engine type in in inverted commas "Dodgson Manuscript".
If you can plough through it there is a mine of information about the families around Bewcastle on this.

Hi Judy
I have some Armstrongs in my family tree, also Pearson. 
My Armstrong is Elizabeth Armstrong who married a William Pearson in approx 1853.   Elizabeth's parents were William & Mary Armstrong, and I have also found 2 brothers Robert and Thomas.  All the Armstrongs (Robert, Thomas and Elizabeth) were born in the 1830s. 
Please get back to me if you think any of these correlate with your research. 
Thanks Anita
 :)
PS  I can share some info with you on the Pearsons if you think they link up with your tree.

Yes thanks Judy...I did find it a few months ago...and as you said it's a mine of information of the families in that area, especially when you consider it was written in the early 1800's. 

Thanks for pointing out however..I'm sure it may come in useful for others looking up Dodgson, Routledge, Nixon, Kennedy, Armstrong, Tweddle, Little and others I can't recall right now.

Jane's brother John came to Ontario, Canada, married, 9 children, 44 grandchildren.  He was my great great grandfather.    Another sister, Margaret, married Philip Davidson and stayed in Castle Carrock, but I would like to find Jane and her husband too.   There's another sister Ann and I know nothing about her.    I am working on the tree at

And...your Jane Atkinson's uncle Richard Atkinson married Ann Armstrong.   Their son, also named John, first cousin to my John, also came to Ontario and left many descendants.
