Help with place names
« on: Thursday 10 December 15 13:31 GMT (UK) »
Hi to all,

I have a marriage licence record for Brough under Stainmore for John Ellwood & Ann Waistell 1798. However, I am having trouble reading the "adresses" of the bride and groom.

John Ellwood of Thorney something?  And Ann of Strickgill? 

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Are you able to re-scan it and make it any bigger possibly?

In the meantime, I've had a little go at resizing it for you - I'm not sure if it helps at all (there's a lot of noise on it).

I'm pretty sure it says Thorney Scale

I think the other one is Strickgill which cane be seen here, a short distance from Thorney Scale, as Stricegill

Looking again I think it could well say Stricegill rather than Strickgill. There is a Waistell family at Stricegill in 1841.

Thanks very much for your help!

Thorney Scale & Strickgill look correct.

I cannot rescan as I only have the electronic doc.

As I said in my previous posting, I now think that your original says Stricegill: what I took for 'k' is in fact an oversized 'e'  :D

It is certainly called Stricegill in the 1841 census.
