Thomas DODGSON, a yeoman of Casterton, left a will, probate dated 14 Apr 1842. Copies are available from the Lancashire Record Office in Preston ( http://archivecat.lancashire.gov.uk/CalmView/Record.aspx?src=CalmView.Catalog&id=W%2fRW%2fL%2fR644%2f112&pos=52 ).

Likely death notices for John DODGSON state that he died very suddenly on Wednesday the 22 May 1839 at Casterton. Both notices state "in the prime of life", rather than recording his actual age.

Thanks fretep. Since I posted this message, I have obtained a copy of Thomas Dodgson's will.  In it, Thomas mentions his son John is deceased, and leaves all his goods to his granddaughters, John's children.

I now have birth and death dates for John Dodgson, so I thinks its about all I'm likely to find.

Thanks again for your interest and assistance.

Cheers
