Fabulous Palladium !!!!
The William T Mitchell on the 1881 bit was my Great Grandad, He went on to marry EdithSpeight and their son, James Lund Mitchell was my grandad.
Although there is no connection.The Hairdresser part was also interesting because before my dad, Jack Stobbart, retrained as a special schools teacher he was a gents hairdresser. !!!
Thanks for all the info. Caron.

As I've been walking up and down Captain French Lane every day for the past 2 weeks I was curious and googled 'Captain French Lane Kendal"
I found this: http://www.kendalwiki.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Captain_French_Lane
before I thought I might find out more here
I have not read all the replies you received (you might already know about this site), but there is some interesting additions to some of the curiosity around family names and Captain French being the church warden in the Parish Church in 1660 ...
good luck

Many of my ancestors lived on this street as well. The Troughton, Shepherd and Carradus families all lived here.  Would anyone know about the 10 cottages on Captain French Lane which were referred to as Proctor Gardens and where their exact location may be today. Thanks, Ella

Hi trawdenboy,
This thread is quite old but I've only just joined so forgive me if it all seems done & dusted for you.
We seem to have a common ancestor in William Wilcock who married Agnes Read/Reed in Kendal and moved to Bentham circa.1852-1855.
Does your tree come down his son John's line?
I'd love to know where you've gone with this.
Regards, Roses Lass.
