Found my note about Patrick (not sure where info came from):

Patrick Belton took part in the Jameson Raid in 1896. Killed 1899, fighting with the Imperial Light Horse.

Thanks for all the additional information. There is a great deal to go through and corroborate!  I will try and cross check the possible military details once again for Patrick Belton. I have got the details for Andrew and James.

I have also visited St Mary's Churchyard and located the relevant headstone (photograph attached). Thanks to everyone for their assistance with the enquiry.

Attached is a photograph of the Hamilton Lane street sign (where the Belton family lived at one time). The building they lived in is no longer there.

This stret sign is on the side of 'The Waterfront' hostelry (previously 'The Standard').

My great great grandmother (Ann Surtees nee Wallace) was actually landlady of the Red Lion in 1865. Here is the best photo I've seen of the place...

It is a very interesting photograph.  Are the ladies in the photograph your relatives by any chance? Many of us are "related through drink" as the old stagers used to say - if not any other way!

There was a big concentration of public houses in this district of Whitehaven in the late 19th C. It was a similar thing in Cleator Moor.

The floral overalls that the women used to wear - I remember seeing them worn when I used to visit Whitehaven as a kid - was there an "official" name for this item of clothing? :)
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

The one related to me is Barbara Ion Cradduck (nee Little), who was born 1896 (front left). She was my dad's 2nd cousin, but 42 years his senior. It belongs to a certain Mandie, and she says the three on the back are Mrs. Pater, Theresa Wright (nee Kinsella) and Ma Bradley. Theresa will be Mary Teresa (mother Wear), who was born DEC 1909. I once emailed the photo to someone who thought her sister Louisa was the one pictured.
