Lancashire Lookup Requests / Re: Catherine, wife of Jonah Grigg, of Hawkshead
« on: Sunday 31 October 21 17:22 GMT (UK)  »
Thanks for looking into that garstonite. At least if Catherine had been the one causing the trouble there might be some mention of her!

It looks like the legal case ran from 1812 until at least 1813 (if not up to 1816) but seems to be between James Sanders and Jonah/Jonas Grigg.

It's a possibility, although the National Archives and Cumbria archives have documents relating to Jonas Grigg of Torver (I'm assuming it's the same person, just a different spelling) being sued for trespass and assault by James Sanders in the 1810s.

Thanks for posting that garstonite. I agree it's really strange that there's no sign of a burial record for Catherine. I've even tried looking for her under her maiden name but no luck so far.

Hi bethanyyd96, thanks for the reply.

I'm really confused as to why there doesn't seem to be a death/burial mentioned anywhere. I've looked through the newspaper archives and there's nothing there either. Quite odd given that Jonah was a schoolmaster when they married which I would assume was quite a prominent position  in that area at the time.

Have you got the information for Jonah and Catherine's son? I have that if it's of any interest to you?

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Catherine, wife of Jonah Grigg, of Hawkshead

Hi,

I'm struggling to find a death for Catherine Grigg (sometimes sp Gregg) nťe Dixon, b.1777 in Torver.

She married Jonah Grigg in Torver on 19 January 1797. They had 2 children, Jane b.1798 and Dixon (1802-1805). Jonah marries for a second time on 8 August 1826 in Hawkshead, where he marries Hannah Creighton and states he is a widower. Despite this I can't find a death for Catherine.

If anyone can help that would be much appreciated.

Dublin / Early 20th Century Pantomimes
« on: Tuesday 08 October 19 19:28 BST (UK)  »
A photo has recently come into my possession of my 2xgreat aunt which shows her in costume for an appearance in a pantomime. Unfortunately there is no date on the picture, but on the back she has written that she had to have the photo's taken to put outside the theatre.

I am posting on here in the hope that someone may be able to point me in the direction of any information regarding the history of pantomime performances in Dublin as we would love to know more about her career. We suspect she would have been part of an English Troupe, possibly from the Lancashire area, and it has always been a family story that she was a Tiller Girl. Given that she was born in 1890 I think it is possible it was taken some time after 1905.

I apologise for the lack of information I have but any help/guidance would be great.

Cheshire Lookup Requests / Re: Henry Sanders b.1808

I believe Henry died in 1849 but I think Iíve found him on the 1841 census living in Kendal. His birth year is given as 1811. I think he might have married an Elizabeth Brooks on 4 Oct 1837 in Kendal.
