School in Westmorland 1700's?? Stricklands?
« on: Tuesday 15 September 15 18:51 BST (UK) »
Does anyone know of the Strickland family history in Westmorland? I am looking details on the school ran by Mrs Strickland.
On tracing the family line i have some information from one of the relatives in her memoirs.
"Memoirs of Mrs Mary Tatham, late of Nottingham"
 she mentioned " My father Robert the youngest of 3 his father & mother were both the immediate descendents of families of considerable note. My grandfather & grandmother Strickland lived upon their own estate in Westmoreland.  Also that her grandmother had a school in Westmoreland from dates in the memoirs the school was open from at least 1767-1789.
There are these baptisms
John Strickland bap 17/4/1726 Witherslack Westmorland father John Strickland
Daniel Strickland bap 29/12/1730 as above
Robert Strickland bap 29/5/1732 as above
She mentions an uncle Daniel & her father marrying her mother in London
Robert Strickland of Nottingham M Mary Palmer 23/5/1763 St Olave Bermondsey
So i am happy that this is her family

John Strickland born Witherslack M Mary Shutters 6/2/1724 Beetham
These i presume are her Grandparents who lived on their estate in Westmorland.

I have posed this Q here
Byrne, Butterfield, Gilbert, Sutcliffe, Furey, Alderson, Warham, to name a few!
