1891 census - Troutbeck & Skelwith Bridge: COMPLETED
« on: Friday 22 December 17 12:14 GMT (UK) »
I am puzzled by an entry for Margaret Coward in Ancestry's extract for RG12/4329, fo 84, p.9.
The image shows her with a sister at High Fold, Troutbeck but the Anc summary gives residence at Skelwith Bridge, some miles away, beyond Ambleside.
My interest in her comes from a death certificate for a death in 1892 where the child died at Skelwith Bridge, in Skelwith Bridge R.S.D, and Margaret Coward was the informant as occupier, in attendance.  The District was Ulverston, sub-district Hawkshead.
The child was Ruth Ainslie aged 3 months, whose parents lived in Liverpool but had family links with the Lake District.
Could the S.B. RS District have included Troutbeck?
Any suggestions from local knowledge would be helpful.

I have marked this as 'completed' as I have now found a different Margaret Coward living in Skelwith Bridge at 1891 and 1911 who fits much better than the first one I tried.
The oddity of the first query remains  unsolved, but not now important for me!

Its a interesting one that the hamlet of Skelwith Bridge the rivers  county boundary Hawkshead was Lancashire and Ambleside in Westmorland so it depends on which side of river you lived
