Looking for anyone who has a interest in the name Stephenson, mainly from Selside area of Westmorland.  In particular Anthony Stephenson.

thanks Linda

Hi Lynda, I have an interest in Anthony Stephenson of Selside. I think he is my husband's 3rd great grandfather. My Anthony was born in 1779 and moved to Manchester with his family about 1820.  Is he the same Anthony?  Irene

Have you ordered all the Stevenson/Stephenson wills from the Lancashire Record Office?  I think I have all the Selside wills from 1560-1820, and there are quite a few Stevensons.

Wow, thank you both very much! I've just been on the Lancashire Archives site and downloaded Anthony's marriage to Mary Wilson! Having great fun, just shows what you can find if someone shows you where to look!  Irene
