Cumberland / Re: Jane Armstrong Nicholls nee Bewley. Frizington 1865
« on: Monday 14 November 16 13:54 GMT (UK)  »
She died on the 8th March 1944 at Frizington Road and was buried at Frizington. Her mother Margaret Cook was one of my family.  Margaret was landlady at Griffin before she married Joseph Bewley.  I have made contact with family members on Bewley side who did go to S Africa.  Contact me personally for more details if you want.

Thank you.  A visit to the Record Office is to be arranged and probably one to the Border Regiment Museum.
We are making good progress!

Cumberland / Moor Row and Bigrigg WW1 Memorials
« on: Wednesday 05 March 14 21:52 GMT (UK)  »
The pupils at Moor Row Primary School are researching the names on the War Memorials in Moor Row and Bigrigg (including the  memorial to railway workers located in Moor Row Working Men's Club).

If anyone has family connections with these we would welcome your input.  Photographs would be great!

There is a Dr J James listed.  At present we can find no record of him in the 1911 census or on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site.

All help appreciated!

Cumberland / Grange House Alston
« on: Thursday 20 February 14 19:35 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find out who lived in Grange House, Alston around 1928. 
A relative married in West Cumbria at this time.   Her spouse, born in Lochrutton near Dumfries gave Grange House as his place of residence. I understand Grange House is the Quaker Meeting House but was not used for this purpose at this time. 
Can anyone tell me if a family called Beck lived there? Mr Beck was a policeman but his ancestors in Scotland were waterworks overseers.
Many thanks

Cumberland / Old photos of Frizington

Does anyone know where I can find old photos of Frizington.

My family (Cook's)had connections with many of the pubs in the area!! I have two of the Griffin - one around 1890 and the other 1905 but would like to see old ones of the Parkside and White Bull. 

My maternal grandparents ( Crosthwaite's)had a butcher's shop and abattoir on Main Street. Originally they farmed at Birks and Winder. 

Both families lived at the Griffin and Steele Bank and various times.
Many thanks
