For Woodthorpegirl - look up please
« on: Saturday 26 September 09 15:55 BST (UK) »
Hi :)

This is a very kind offer thank you.

I am looking for the parents of Isabella Hoggarth born about 1819 Undermillbeck who married James Studholme 1818 from Staveley, Westmorland. I have no marriage date or any other details for them.

Would Staveley be covered by your database also for the parents of James by any chance?

I have the children of Isabella and James or should I say the children that showed up on the census.

Thank you

Evie

I think your Isabella Hoggarth is the one who appears in the IGI as the  daughter of Joseph and Agnes, b. August 1st 1819, christened at Windermere.

Unfortunately I don't have the baptism records for 1819, but I do have baptism records for other children of Joseph and Agnes. The dates may contain errors because my copy is hard to read, and they  seem confusing:

1816 John, son of Joseph and Agnes, Lindeth, farmer.
1817 John son of Joseph and Agnes, Lindeth, farmer, b. Feb 11th, christened November  2nd.

1826 Joseph son of Joseph and Agnes, Lindeth, farmer.

Lindeth is still there.  It was a large estate containing several farms bought by John Bolton, a Liverpool merchant who made his fortune in the slave trade and lived at Storrs which is now a hotel.  Joseph Hoggarth appears as his tenant in the 1829 land tax for Undermillbeck.

Surnames can be very local, and Hoggarth isn't really an Undermillbeck name - the Hoggarth family originally came from neighbouring Troutbeck I believe, and the painter William Hogarth was related to them.  As a tenant farmer, Joseph is likely to have moved to Undermillbeck from somewhere nearby. However, there  one or two Hoggarths appear in the 1777 window tax.

I don't have records for Staveley, but there were certainly Studholmes in Staveley - Wiiliam and Ann stick in my mind.  If I come across anything, I'll let you know.

Hi,
I read Woodthorpegirl's post with interest. James Studholme and Isabella Hoggarth are my 4th great grandparents, so I guess we are related, I am currently looking at this branch and have the Hoggarth branch going back to 1731. This is a confusing trail however and wonder if we could compare notes?
Note this is an old post but here's hoping
