Hi Suz
Many thanks. Looks like the right Ann - perhaps she didn't get on with her step-mother!

Hi  :)

I think the servant is Agnes Coward, probably from my Coward family, not done much on this line yet though.

Will see if we can find Thomas in 1841

Catherine  :)

Her aunt is a landed proprietor so maybe her prospects were considered better staying with a wealthier relative......

How amazing if you had also found someone. I will wait to hear from you about Thomas and will hope you can find something. I had tried looking for some time previous to staring up this correspondence but had had no success.

Thanks for this. I presume that Margaret Towers was Thomas Gaskill's sister. They seem to have been a fairly well-off family if a son was studying at Cambridge (unlike most of the ancestors I have discovered)!

 :-\ the only one I can find in 1841 is a Thomas Gaskill 35 "Ag Lab" Y in a Hall (Tullthwaite?) Milnthorpe, Kendal, home of  Richard and Elizabeth Willison plus their children, Robert, Thomas + servants. I wonder if he was a visitor and the occupation was entered incorrectly....... or he could be somewhere else in the country, which means searching every Thomas/Thos/Tho. Gaskel/Gaskell/Gaskil/Gaskill born c1804/5  :-\

Hi Catherine
This is very interesting as I have found a baptism on Family Search of a Richard Willison Gaskill. He was born on 31 July 1838 and baptised on 26 August. His father is given as Thomas Gaskill and his mother as Elizabeth!

It seems possible that this is the right Thomas you have found although who knows how it might fit together. Now I have found out so much about Ann's family prior to her marriage I think I will drw this to a close as I don't think we will find much more.

Many thanks to you and Suz for your efforts.

That's the only one I could find. CatOne

Searched all Thomas gaskill's of abt same age -found a few "boarders" b. lancs -but none married.

I wonder if margaret Towers was really Ann gaskills great Aunt -she could be the Aunt of Ann's mother margaret ?????

Think there's a lot more research needed to "tie " them together

Have you thought of making  a post asking for baptism records of all the children -Father Thomas /Mother possibly margaret/Elizabeth???

It's worth a try
