Thank you KGarrard, Kay, Chempat and Angela for solving just what happened to Elizabeth, I really appreciate it.
I'm sure it was John Henry Milnes who she married, all the dates and places fit.
kind regards

Thank you Carole and milliepede for replies. Looking at the number of children they had it was obviously before tele’s had been invented! 😳
Here’s wishing you both a Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year.

I'm asking on behalf of a friend who has little information regarding his family history.
Would appreciate any information regarding Thomas Woodburn Thompson born Cartmel 1840.

Thank you Fordyce setting everything straight. With looking at the name spellings and the word Bradford reminded me of a comment made by Denis Healey, former Chancellor.
He was born and raised in Bradford and once said he was in his twenties before he realised Bradford had a 'd' in it not spelt Bratford due to the local dialect!

May I first thank everyone for their input regarding the children of Mungo and Agnes Chapman, really appreciated.
My 4x Gt,grandparents were Mungo and Agnes Chapman. My 2x Gt,Grandfather was George Chapman b. 1/7/1804 – 1883 Abercorn, a brother to Janet.
I also noted that there was some confusion with the Christian names of either Janet or Agnes Kerr.
