GARNETT Family in Crosthwaite & Lyth, Heversham and Kendal
« on: Sunday 04 December 16 18:47 GMT (UK) »
Hello there,

Has anyone been researching the Garnett family which was prominent in Crosthwaite & Lyth, Westmorland, in the eighteenth century? I am descended from George Garnett (1702-1783) who was born in Crosthwaite and died in Heversham. I understand there may be a connection to the Anthony Garnett of the sixteenth century Castle Dairy house in Kendal, and ergo to the noble Parr family. Certainly the name Anthony Garnett is a recurring name throughout the generations of Garnetts in my family. I would be keen to hear from anyone who has a shared connection or further information. Any assistance or directions would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Steve Wilkinson

Hello
There is a baptism in Crosthwaite.
George Garnett 9.11.1702 son of George Garnett.

siblings Margaret 15.11.1685, Agnes 2.11.1690,Bridgett 6.11.1694 Joseph 28.5.1700,and Mary 28.2.1706

It looks like George senior was  baptised  at Crosthwaite 30.8.1657 s of William Garnett

William could be the William 29.7.1621 s of Anthony at Kendal  or 10.6.1635 at Crosthwaite  the former  would fit the story you have and the latter may be the same father just moving parish.

Hello,

I have revisited my research notes, and to my knowledge I cannot prove a descent from the George Garnett mentioned in my first post above. The earliest known Garnett ancestor in my line is William Garnett (c.1786-1859) who was married to my ancestress Jane Armistead. I am keen to trace his baptism record and his parents' names, but I have yet to discover a baptism for him in Old Hutton, Westmorland, which was his place of birth according to the 1851 census entry. One record which often surfaces online is a baptism of a William Garnett in Heversham, on 27 August 1786, the son of William Garnett and Eleanor Bindloss. I can safely rule this out, as that William can be traced elsewhere in later life. Any help to trace the baptism of the correct William would be gratefully received!

Kind regards,

Steve Wilkinson
