Hi Trevor,

Just been reading your post.  My friend Joyce ( who lives in Keighley in Yorkshire ) has been looking for the same family names I think??

I was wondering if she had contacted you recently?

I look forward to your reply.

Kind regards,
Pauline.

Hello Pauline,
I dont recall having any contact with Joyce.  Its quite a while since I've done any Fothergill research but I have managed to go further back than James now. If she wants to contact me I will give her any information I've found.
Thanks

James  Fothergill & Mary Parkin at Birk Rigg are a common destination.  I spent several years  trying to find their parents.  The clue is to find the home of James Fothergill before he arrived at Birk Rigg. His first children were born at Deep Gill.  His parents at DeepGill farm were John Fothergill and Isabell Rudd. The grandparents were John Fothergill and Jane Birkbeck & John Rudd and Hannah Ellison.  More details are in my Family tree at Ancestry.com  (RWLONG)

I exchanged data with Richard Fothergill to define the Birk Rigg-A and -B Fothergill lines that he published in his excellent volumes on The Fothergill History.

The fascinating bit about this family is the rumor that the Carr End Fothergill family has roots at Deepgill. I'm hoping that the DNA programs will eventually validate the relationship between the families.

By the way the archives of RootsChat contain earller messages from me about this family.

Hi Pauline
Haven't got john or sarah in our tree although sure they must be related somehow . Did a search on Ancestry and all the trees I found with these 2 in.have Johns birth as 1750. What information does your friend actually have. If its something in particular shes looking for I could have a look for it if she wants.
Thanks

Hi Trevor,

Unfortunately that is all the information that she has, but thank you for your time.

If she finds anything else, I will contact you.

Kind regards,
Pauline
