Hi
It cannot be Thomas b 1802 as this document is dated 1737 and 1743
It was taken from voting details for Appleby and only gave what I gave you

Thank you!

Now, IF I'm using familysearch correctly the next generation up should be:

Daniel's (1728) parents were Edmund and Elizabeth Robinson, married 14 October 1725 in Carlisle, Northumberland, England and they had 4 children:

Carlisle was in Cumberland back then, not Northumberlland!

I've attached a family group sheet that shows what we have, in collaboration with various researchers. Like everything else, it needs checking.

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.

We have his wife as Agnes Townson, and they had a son Townson Ellwood. Perhaps that was a corrupted version of Townsend, but it seems to have persisted. We have their son Thomas as being born in Skelsmergh.

Hi and welcome to Rootschat, so do you have his christening ie

Thos Ellwood Birth 14th June 1802 Christening 19th June 1802 Grayrigg, Kendal Father Edward Mother Abigail

We have that as a different Thomas Ellwood -- not the one who married Agnes Townson/Townsend, but this one seems to have married first Isabella Dent and then Elizabeth Burton.

Carlisle has always been in Cumbria (then Cumberland).

There are quite a lot of old Wills for El(l)woods bet 1661-1750 - Wills proved in the Consistory Court of Carlisle, including the following in Dufton:
Agnes wid Dufton 1678 W
Chris, yeo, Dufton 1676 W
Chris yeo, Dufton 1698 W
Edmund, yeo Dufton 1710 W
Edmund, yeo Dufton 1730 WI 437 (56)
Edw yeo, Dufton 1677 W
Lancelot, Dufton 1683 AI
Mark, Dufton 1739 WI 49
Mark, 1658 Dufton (I have a full copy of this will if you want a copy please PM me)
Thos, Dufton 1665 WI (138)
Tho Dufton 1744 W 217 (136v)
Wm Dufton 1671 AI

AI = Administration of goods, Inventory
WI = Will, inventory

These are all held at Cumbria Archive Centre, Carlisle, I would have thought you could email them and for a small fee they could send to you.

With the Yeomen - it's possible that there will be Manorial Court Records for Dufton which survive and will give details of land transactions, property etc. It may be worth checking on National Archives website, to see if these are held at Carlisle or Kendal Archive Centre.

Thanks very much for that.

I think Bruce Morrison, whose website disappeared (I have a copy of it, though) relied a lot on wills for his research, and they mention several children whose baprtism records cannot be found.

Hi, not sure if anyone still visits this page but I'm an Ellwood decendant and still living in Kendal. I'm from The Townson line if I can help at all.
