Hi
Thank you for your kind offer

My Mam was from Maryport and still has family there.  I am interested in John Scott and Sgt George Scott.

Thank you

Hi

What a generous offer.

I would be very interested in the information on Peter Banks.

My grandmother's maternal line were the Banks family from Maryport and quite a few were tailors/upholsterers, back as far as Jonathan Banks born about 1780.

Many thanks
Hilary

Dear Mrs AKY

When I look more closely at the cuttings relating to Sgt GEORGE SCOTT, it seems he was part of a double wedding ceremony at Maryport on 28th Feb 1918. He married Miss Jane Anderson whilst her sister, Elizabeth married Lance corporal Joseph Henderson.
The Anderson girls came from Hutton House and were given away by their brother, Percy. Two other sisters, Mollie and Ethel were bridesmaids.
MARTIN SCOTT was a younger brother to George and was married to Mary Alice Powell in 1920 - he was an engineer officer with the Blue Funnel Line. The parents of George and Martin lived at 16 Wood Street, Maryport.

Dear HilaryW

The cutting I have that features Peter Banks is as a mention in a report of a wedding between John Dalrymple Johnston and Mary Cort Hewetson (not dated).
The piece describes this society wedding and says:
'...The path from the Netherhall Gateway and the church aisles were carpeted with red cloth, this work being undertaken by Mr Peter Banks, High Street.'

So, it sounds like your tailor/upholsterer ancestors were very much part of society at that time.

Sorry there is not more!

Thank you so much for the transcript, unfortunatly I don't have a connection but strangely enough my grandad was born on the same street at 66 and his youngest son (my uncle)  lives in 61.

Thank you for all your help, its just a shame I can't place them

Regards

Sorry for the delay.

The cutting tells of the marriage of Miss Jennie Cartmer (second daughter of Mr and Mrs John Cartmer, Crosby Street) to James Palmer (Wood Street) at the Primitive Methodist Church, Maryport.
It says: "The bridegroom, who is the eldest son of Mr and Mrs James Palmer, served in the Border Regiment and the intelligence Corps in France during the great war, his knowledge of languages being particularly useful in his secret service work."
Sounds interesting...
From another cutting relating to the Palmers, I understand that they were local fishmongers.
(Full transcript sent via personal message.)
Hope this is your family.
