Hi

I beleive that the Jane Coward that married David Huddlestone and the jane Coward that was the daughter of Robert and Agnes Coward are two different people.
The Jane that married David Huddlestone was christened at Grasmere in sept 1770 on igi she is named as jinny coward daughter of John Coward.
The other Jane Coward was christened at Kendal on 8th jan 1775 and Margaret on 10 aug 1777 the daughters of Robert and Agnes Coward but i can't find any records of their marriage.
David Huddlestone was a banker in Kendal before he retired and owned slate quarries and the Elterwater gunpowder works .

Hi
  Thanks for your reply. I've checked out the Walker link you passed to me and there is a definite link to my tree there, although it is distant. It also fits in with some other information I've just discovered from Australia.
   I'll look at the information in your last post. I find it is quite confusing -  I have so many people with the same name - Jane, John, George and William - it is quite a maze at times!
      Thanks again,
                 Mike.

Jeremiah Coward of Skelwith Bridge (1789-1871) is my g/g/g/ grandfather.  His father was John Coward, originally from Lowick, who became a Miller at Skelwith Bridge.  John Coward married Hannah Mason at Grasmere in 1769.  Jeremiah was the youngest of eight children. He took over the mill at Skelwith Bridge (now "Chesters") and converted it to a Bobbin Mill which his son Jackson Coward ran after his death.  Other Bobbin Mills under the Coward family management were Stott Park, Finsthwaite and Low Briery, Keswick.  His daughter Susannah (my g/g/ grandmother) and her husband Thomas Eyers ran the Bobbin Mill at Crooklands.
