Its possible that as Thomas was a labourer it could have been the name of a farm rather than a place.  A lot of the other baptisms on the page were for children of colliers and it gave their address, which caught my eye as unusual, as Gin, quick search on the internet doesn't bring anything up for that either, but if found you may possibly be able to locate Cross Green as somewhere near an old colliery?
(Apparently a gin is where the horses go round and round to pull the coal up from the mine, but how that fits being a place, I don't know!!)

There's a Cross Hill in St Bees.

Checked the marriage record for John Wilson.  No parents are listed on the entry.  The witnesses were Thomas Wilson and Henry Bragg.

The baptism record for John Wilson is very difficult to read, but it gives his father as a labourer and the address is Cross Green.  The register has his birth date as 19/11/1803 and his baptism date as 29/11/1803.

Sorry there was no further information.

Hello

There is a "Crossgreens" alias 'Cross Green' in the Parish of Bewcastle.

If you look at the (1" OS First Series) map attached you will see it is on the road North of "St Cuthberts" Church, Bewcastle.

I'm afraid it is almost lost in the map contours.

However, this is quite some distance from St Bees.

Apparently, it can also be read off Thomas Donald's map of Cumberland, as well.

Thank you.

On the 1841 Census, John Wilson is listed as a Labourer at Chisenhale Street, Mariners Place, Liverpool.

On the 1851 Census, he's listed as Dock Labourer at Chisenhale Street too.

Also, his wife, born Jemima Carr (her mother was a single mum called Isobella Carr who later married to a John Crickson), appears in 1828 as Jemima Crickson (no Carr o Wilson) and works as Straw Hat Maker at Whitehaven, Parton, Hensingham and Moresby. The address is listed as  1 Catherine Street, Whitehaven, Cumberland. I checked on Google Maps and the street still exists today.
