Irvings in Alston
« on: Monday 10 February 14 15:03 GMT (UK) »
From IGI I have found a Jonathan irving in Alston, about 1770. My Jonathan Irving appears in Flimby
as married to Elizabeth Bell 1799, and on 1841 census as birth 1771. I cannot find an earlier record for Jonathan in Flimby pre 1799 and presumption is that he could have come from Alston. Are there any other Irvings in Alston, I think a George Irving in FLimby may have been his brother but again no proof.

Any help would be appreciated as I am a long way from Carlisle records office.

Thank you
Frances

Just a holding note. Carlisle Record Office only has copies of the relevant records. Alston is in the Diocese of Newcastle and before that in Durham.

Family search has several hundreds of pages of scanned images from Alston bishops' transcripts http://tinyurl.com/qxl3tfe
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

Thanks Trish

The more I am looking at this the less I think, Jonathan and possible George  came from Alston.
The only birth of Jonathan Irvin(g) was in Alston but I am now wondering if it should be Scotland.
