Ellwood, Thomas of Kendal Westmorland
« on: Friday 21 February 14 00:49 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

My first time here trying to track down a "missing" generation I have in my documented lineage.

I am looking for the ancestors of Thomas Ellwood (born 1802, died Oct 1876, in Kendal) and spouse Agnes Townsend of Westmorland.

They had a son, Thomas Edward Ellwood born 12/15/1831 in New Hutton and came to USA 1855 with wife Mirriam Wilcox born 7/30/1829 in England.

I haven't been able to find anything about Thomas's (born 1802) parents in the late 1700's.

Any help would be graciously appreciated.

Thank you kindly =)

Sadly I do not as most of the resources I have been able to find only start around 1836, namely BMD and parish.

Parish records seem to stop around 1743:
http://www.cumberlandarchives.co.uk/content/category/4/13/27/

I found a few Ellwoods in Stricklandgate:

ELLWOOD John, Strg (2)
ELLWOOD Margrat, Strg
ELLWOOD Mary, Strg

... from the Constables Census Westmorland 1787 here:

http://edenlinks.rootsweb.ancestry.com/1gp/RECORDS/CC/EW/STRIK5.HTM

But I have no way to link Thomas Ellwood of 1802 back one generation to fill the void.

That said, the Kendal records aren't complete so there may be others, however bridging the gap is proving to be a challenge
