Hansons in Orton

From the restricted periods I have covering Orton:

18th of a month between Sep and Dec 1717 [__] Hodgson and Mary Hanson marry (*)

(*) I'm sorry but I cannot read the month or the man's name on my copy.  It may be clearer on the original.

There is also a Hodgson/Nicholson marriage in CR - a John Hodgson is christened in 1797 to John H and Dorothy N.
regards
Deborah

Hi Gillian,
Thanks for your bit about Anthony Nicholson & the Church Pews at Kendal.
As yet I can not connect them but will keep it in mind. You just never know with any of these small bits of info where they might lead.

Came across your posting today.   My wife's family name (paternal) is Nicholson or Nickolson.   I have traced them back into Beetham and also into Morecambe.  There are many Nick's in these areas!!  Maybe helpful,  I hope so!!

According to the IGI there was an Anthony Nicholson baptised at Crosby Ravensworth on 8th June 1738, son of Henry Nicholson.

HTH,

Thanks have got him in the PRs'.
Anthony son of Henry Nicholson and Mary Kitching bap 1738.

Henry Nicholson was bap 1710 Crosby Ravensworth. His parents were Anthony Nicholson and Agnes Wilkinson.

I have proved with PR's Wills etc that the tree is right to there.

However the only Anthony Nicholson born around 1680/90 that I can find to be his father is one born in Barton Westmorland in 1685 to Henry Nicholson and Annas Sisson.

I would very much like more proof that this is the right one. I am hoping maybe a will of an Uncle or spinster Aunt may turn up and prove this for me or something!

Hi Judy,

Impressive!

Can you trace any of the spouses' families?

Is it a leap of faith to think that Mary Kitching was baptised at Crosby Ravensworth in 1715 and was the daughter of James?

And how about Dorothy Hodgson's parents?

Many thanks,
Caspar

Yes, have got Mary's father as James Kitching.

James married Agnes Bland in 1705 in Crosby Ravensworth.

These are through the Crosby Ravensworth PR's. But have no other evidence to back it up as yet. Haven't researched Kitching or Bland wills as yet.

Still have Dorothy Hodgson born around 1745ish at Scarside, Orton. Potentially parents are: Father William Hodgson Mother Margaret Burton. Now I was given this information by some one else and have not followed it up in any PR's or anything so can not verify it as right. Hoping something may turn up to prove it one way or the other.

Are you researching this family?
