Ellwood fo Crosby Ravensworth
« on: Saturday 20 September 08 18:30 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I've tracked down a Matthew Ellwood born dec 1839 to John Ellwood (born abt 1796) and Margaret Ellwood (born abt 1800).

These dates are approximate and I can't seem to go further back. The bit that's concerning me about the parents births is that none of the children were born until around 1830 onwards which seems a little late considering most people had children reasonably young although it does tie in with the 1841 census.

Does anyone have any further ideas ?

In the 1851 census they have a daughter of 21 so that marriage sounds about right.  Living in Maulds Meaburn
John 59 Ag lab pauper b Crosby Ravensworth
Margaret 53                              "
Thomas 13
Matthew 10
Mary 7
Jane 21 kids all born Maulds Meaburn

1851 census for Maulds Meaburn Westmorland.  All children shown as b Maulds Meaburn

John Ellwood 59 ag labourer pauper b Crosby Ravensworth
Margaret 58 b Crosby Ravensworth
Thomas 13
Matthew 10
Mary 7
Jane 21
I think age should be 53 as she would have been 51 when she had Mary if she was 58

Interesting as I read it as 53!   I also meant to point out that ages above 15 in the 1841 census were generally rounded down to the nearest 5 so the 1851 ones should be more accurate.  There is another son John with them in 1841.

Ancestry has her age as 52 and I'm inclined to agree with it.  The enumerator uses a characteristic loop at the top of the 2 which is not present on the 3.

The IGI batch for Crosby Ravensworth P003201 has several ELLWOODs but no NUTT.

A Margaret NUTT was bap 1800 at Kendal 1800 (Batch C003114) but this seems some distance away :(
Don't cry because its over. Smile because it happened.

1841 census states John was 45 and Margaret was 40 - it appears that it might be accurate compared to the D.O.B I  have of abt 1796 and abt 1800.
