On FreeReg there are various children baptised at Kirkby Stephen to father John of Soulby/Onion Flat around the time of the Robert in 1745. Though it doesn't give mother's name, there is a burial for Jane BORRADALE, wife of John of Soulby, on 25 Feb 1754. A possibility.

Robert BORRADALE bap 24 Sep 1745 at Kirkby Stephen. Father: John of Soulby.

However, there is also a burial for a Robert BORRODAL of Soulby on 28 Sep 1764. (Though there is another family with father ROBERT baptising children at Kirkby Stephen earlier, so it could be him.  :-\ )

There is a marraige for Robert BORRADALE to Sarah MURRAY (of Ravenstonedale) on 14 Nov 1768 at Kirkby Stephen. Witnesses: Anthony MOSS and Edward COWPERTHWAITE.

I meant to add earlier that "sojourner" is not an occupation. A sojourner is someone who is temporarily staying in a parish, ie from somewhere else.

It does seem a bit confusing to me that the record says "sojourner, of this parish". A sojourner normally implies he was not living in the parish and therefore not entitled to Settlement Rights, however as the "of this parish" was not crossed out, I don't know. He must have been living there for the requisite time to call the banns before marriage (as the banns say "both of this parish"). Confusing.  :-\

Though looking at it again, there is a mark before "of this parish" - maybe it means "not".  Maybe it doesn't even say "sojourner" ? Someone more knowledgeable than me might be able to comment and clear it up.  :)

Just for interest, there is an Edward Green FLETCHER holding East India stock (acquired 6 Oct 1772) - "500" - not sure if this means 500 shares or 500 worth.

"A list of the names of all the proprietors of East India stock; distinguishing the principal stock each proprietor now holds, and the time when such proprietors became possessed thereof"
Author: Donaldson, Jas East India Company
Publication Date: 1773

Edward Green Fletcher died in Heanor 1780 and was buried in Horsley 5 Feb 1780.


The burial was 5 Feb 1790, so my previous reply (#1) doesn't really help with determining which Edward died when.  :-\

Mary Fletcher baptized 5th Feb 1778, Shirland parents Edward Green Fletcher & Elizabeth Fletcher
Mary Fletcher baptized 5th Mar 1778, Shirland parents Edward Green Fletcher & Elizabeth his wife

Are the two Marys the same person or are there more than one Edward Green Fletcher.


I think the 5th March baptism is the parish record, and 5th Feb the Bishop's Transcript. So I would say an error was made in the BT.  :)

 Edward Green Fletcher died in Heanor 1780 and was buried in Horsley 5 Feb 1780.

Edward Green Fletcher Buried Heanor 22 Mar 1805
I think the first death is of Edward senior and the second of Edward junior


There is a John, son of Edward and Elizabeth FLETCHER baptised at Heanor on 18 March 1783.
