Cheakley of Appleby in Westmorland
« on: Saturday 19 February 11 08:03 GMT (UK) »
William & Ann Cheakley moved from Skipton to Appleby c1813 & then returned to Skipton about 1836 where most of them died of consumption.  The only family members  I can't trace may have remained in Westmorland

Elizabeth Cheakley baptised Holy Trinity, Skipton -16 August 1812
Thomas Cheakley baptised Saint Michael, Appleby -17 April 1814
William Cheakley baptised Saint Michael, Appleby - 25 December 1815

The name varies considerably from Chaikley to Chickely  but I should be grateful if anyone could find either marriages or burials for the above in Westmorland as I haven't been able to trace them in Yorkshire

This fits in also;
1861 Census
Hemp Gardens,
Barnoldswick, Yorkshire
RG9/3184/5/3
Mary MOORHOUSE, 33, Head, widow, Straw Bonnet maker, born Thhepsfield?,Yorkshire
Mary Elizabeth BROWN, 14, Neice, Unm, Cotton Winder, born Skipton, Yorkshire
ELEANOR Cheakley, 32, Lodger, Unm, Cotton, Warper, born Appleby, Westmorland

Eleanor was christened to WILLIAM/ANN, 15 May 1827, St Michaels, Appleby
She may have Married 1864 to either;
Joseph BAILEY or Greenwood WILKINSON
(EDIT she Married Greenwood Wilkinson)

She is with the Moorhouses in 1851 down as age 22mths :P
Mary is her Sister who married Currer Moorhouse 1842.

Makes me wonder if Mary Elizabeth BROWN is the Daughter of ELIZABETH Cheakley ???

I have had no luck with Thomas/William on census entries and I apologise if I have gone over everything yo already have.

Thanks very much Gillian & Trish - at least I can now be certain that there are no deaths in Appleby.

I have been able to trace mariages, deaths & descendants for Mary Ann, John, James, Mason, Eleanor & George but must look again at Mary Elizabeth Brown in the 1861 census but think that she on the Moorhouse side & not a Cheakley/Checkley.

Once again I'm stuck with the problem of what happened to Elizabeth, Thomas & William (the older children of William & Ann)

I've also found that William Cheakley's younger brother Thomas Checkley born 1787 in Warwickshire & married to Elizabeth Wilkinson on 12 Mar 1808 in Hothfield, Kent moved to Appleby about 1810 & subsequently had a son Charles baptised 26 May 1811 at St Lawrence, Appleby but once again the trail goes cold.

Some of my early research on the Cheakley/Mason line is on Wharfegen.org.uk but I really would like to find out what happened to the others.  There are some trees on Ancestry which have picked up on these details since then but the original research is mine as I provided the details to Wharfegen.

The connection with Hothfield Kent, Appleby & Skipton Castles is that Lord Hothfield owned all properties  & although there are records at Kendal, I'm informed that there are at least 20 boxes & details of contents are unknown but maybe one day!!!!!!!

Just a Little bit
William Cheakley was a Land Drainer until aprox 1829 when he appears as a Publican
1829 to 1832 he is in the Chequers pub in Appleby
I have no record of any death as yet

Now that's interesting - where did you get the information about William Cheakley being a land drainer?  He was a bailiff in Skipton before they moved to Appleby.

The family moved back to Skipton ijust after 1832 where most of them died of consumption.

Thanks ;D

It seems William had a namesake in Appleby The first entry is 1814 for the baptism of his son Thomas This is from the BMD records for St Michaels Church Appleby aka Bongate
