A family named Gaskill
« on: Monday 03 December 07 14:35 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for a family named Gaskill, living in or near Kendal in the 1830s. The father's name was Thomas, the mother Margaret, and they had a daughter Ann who was baptised in Kendal on 6 October 1836. Her date of birth was 10 February 1836.
The father was possibly a school teacher and they may have had another daughter called Elizabeth or Betsy.

Any information would be very welcome.
Thanks
Talmage

Hi,
Thanks for replying so quickly and it seems that  this could well be the family. I suppose that the father could have died and, with luck his death would have been registered so I will have to try and look it up.

Thanks again

Thanks again - this is brilliant. I certainly think it looks right although I am wondering what happened to Ann after her father remarried as I can't find her on the 1851 census. If this is the right family Ann married my great-great uncle in Manchester in 1857 and on the marriage certificate her father is given as Thomas and his occupation as school teacher. One of the witnesses was a Betsy Gaskill but perhaps she was an aunt, rather than a sister as I had thought.

Thanks again

It has just occurred to me - why was Thomas not listed with his family in 1841?

By 1861 Ann, if it is the right one had emigrated to New York where she died in 1863 leaving one daughter. I have also found a Richard living there who could be her brother.

Thanks again
