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.

Ages of adults in the 1841 census were supposed to have been rounded down.  A recorded age of 45 indicated the person was at least 45 but not yet 50, similarly 40 meant at least 40 but not yet 45.

The instructions to enumerators of the 1841 census are to be found here-

Hi,

The witness at John Ellwood's & Margaret Nutt's wedding was Christopher Bowman if that is any help. John is described as a labourer for his children's baptisms.

There is a burial for a Margaret Ellwood of Meaburn at CR in 1854 aged 54 years.

Regards,

Gillian

I am researching the Ellwood family, came across this today and registered with RootsChat to reply!  John Ellwood & Margaret Ellwood (nee Nutt) are my g.g. grandparents. Their son Thomas, (my g.grandfather) was brother to the Matthew you mention. I too had Margaret Nutt's parents as probably Samuel Nutt & Agnes Nutt (nee Coupland) but haven't been able to go further back than John with any certainty. He was possibly the John Ellwood christened in Kendal on 10 April 1790 (Maragaret was born in 1800 in Kendal) and if so the line could be as follows:
Daniel Ellwood (b.1730 Kendal) m. Hannah Crewdson (b.1733 Kendal) in 1758: their son, also Daniel Ellwood (christened 10/6/1759) m. another Hannah (or Ann) and they were John Ellwood's parents.
Did you have any of this, and have you been abe to verify that this John is the right one? I'd also be interested to know what your connection is to these Ellwoods!

Hi

My great grandmother was Margaret Ellwood (m. to George Suddick). Margaret was John Ellwoods grand daughter and Matthews daughter.

Matthew is shown on the 1841 census living with his parents John and Margaret.

The info I have suggests John Ellwood's parents were Michael Ellwood and Mary Atkinson however this is mainly from work done by others on ancestry.co.uk so I don't have documentary proof.

Thanks

Thanks for this - another line to investigate. You're the first person I've found doing my research that  I'm related to - though it's pretty distant!  :)

Thanks again.

Hi All,

I don't think that your John Ellwood is the son of Michael Ellwood & Mary Atkinson. Their son John died 1808. Michael is the brother of William Ellwood my gggg grandfather. I have Michael's will and he doesn't mention a son John.

According to the 1851 census both John Ellwood and Margaret Nutt were born Crosby Ravensworth.  There is a John son of William & Frances bap 16/9/1787 CR.

Why did you go for the Kendal baptism?

Regards,

Gillian

Hi Gillian
Thanks for this - this seems to rule out Michael & Mary as my John's parents.

I don't have any great confidence that the Kendal John is the right one! But FamilySearch.org confirms Margaret (Nutt) was born in Kendal in Feb 1800, despite what the 1851 census shows so unless this is the wrong Margaret Nutt there could be a Kendal connection. Also I have a death certificate for John Ellwood who died in C Ravensworth (Eamont Bridge Workhouse) in 1863 at the stated age of 73 - this would put his birth in 1790 which is the year the Kendal John was born. Not conclusive I know, but possible at least! I had ruled out John son of William & Frances (Fanny) even though he was born in C R because that John married a Mary Eggleston in 1816. But on reflection Margaret could have been his second wife assuming Mary died before that marriage in 1829. I will have to explore this possibility....................!
