William Richardson b1797 Warcop Westmorland.
« on: Saturday 08 February 14 21:28 GMT (UK) »
Hello All,
Can anyone help with William Richardson baptised 1797 in Warcop Westmorland.
I have found him in the 1851 Census at Claughton Nr. Birkenhead

Rimmers Row Wm Richardson Head Mar Age 54 Curate at ???? Scotland Born Westmorland Warcop
Eliza Richardson Wife Mar 36 Born Yorkshire Whitby
Maria Richardson Daugh (Could this be a step daugh???) Age 19 Born France
Margaret Is Richardson Daugh Age 11 Scholar Born Ireland
Catherine S Richardson Daugh Age 9 Scholar Cheshire B'head
Eliza Richardson Daugh Age 7 Scholar Cheshire B'head
Robert Richardson Son Age ?4 Cheshire B'head
Thomas Richardson Nephew U Age 26 Corn Merchant Westmorland Warcop
Henry Richardson Nephew U Age 18 Clerk Westmorland Morland
Catherine Conner Servant Un Age 22 House Servant Ireland

For the 1851 census o.n one well known family history site his Place of birth is given as Morloy in the search rather than Morland.

I can not find his birth/baptism or his marriage

I can not find him in the 1841 Census or 1861 Census but think he had died by then.

I can not read where in Scotland he was a curate.

Also cannot find a birth/baptism for his nephew Thomas Richardson c1825 Warcop. think I have the other one but can't find them in the 1841 Census.

Any help gratefully received I am stuck on this William.

A copy of one of the younger childrens birth certs will give Eliza's maiden name to help with any marriage search

Thank you for the replies.
Looking at the age of Margaret - his daughter - aged 11, then I suppose he could have been in Ireland at that time. Or in Scotland.

Mind you I am now wondering if he wasn't a Curate from Scotland but a Curate in the Church of Scotland - or am I just surmising!!!

It says on the 1851 Census that his occupation is Curate of or at ????? Scotland.

Any ideas?

Think I read the quote and thought you'd said you couldn't find it either!!! :-[

And that is with my glasses.

Will look at the census. Thank you.

Have just looked at the 1841 Census. Definitely them thank you.

They have put that both William and Eliza were born 'in County' which was Cheshire - whereas nether of them were according to the 1851 Census.

Very much appreciate you finding this. Thanks.

They are still in Cheshire in 1861 but the households are a bit mixed up - looks as though the children are on their own - no William or Eliza

They have been transcribed with an Eliza Dickson 51 b Lancs who appears to be from the next household

William possibly died in 1851.  The census shows they were living in the sub-reg district of Woodchurch and he was 54yrs old
