Interesting to see this.  One of my relatives Lily Parkin from Crook, Durham emigrated from England to Canada in 1920.  She lists Mr or Mrs Proudfoot address 325 Atlantic Ave Winnipeg as cousins that she was going to live with.

Does anyone have info on the Proudfoot family?

Kind regards,

Also the above James Michison, died November/28/1907 aged 81 years.


Adam, thanks so much for posting this!  James William Parkin and Sarah are my gg grandparents.  The story of Lily's death in Winnipeg is tragic 

The military info on Ralph and Robert is interesting as it confirms other research.

I now need to look through your other posts to see if you've got any other Parkin inscriptions.

Thanks once again.


Just googled Mackreth and got here....  Do you know anyone who has researched th name Mackreth in the Lakes?  I'm trying to prove a link with my line of Cape/McKensie's as in Cockermouth 1841 a Hannah Mackreth 79 is living with them.  Later on in 1855 a Mackereth Cape is born in clearly named after family.

Any help appreciated!
