Marriage: 5 Jun 1699 St Mary Magdalene, Broughton in Furness, Lancashire, England
Richd. Lowther - Cole Yate
Issabel Towers - Cole Yate
    Notes: [Entered twice, on different sheets of BTs, one with date entered Jun 9th]
    Register: Marriages 1673 - 1796

.............................................
Marriage: 28 Sep 1729 St Luke, Torver, Lancashire, England
Richard Lowther - Broughton
Elizabeth Fleming - Sauterstead
    Register: Marriages 1692 - 1821
    Source: LDS Film 1040313
says Elizabeth was from Sauterstead ....you say born 19th Jan 1715 in Torver
- this would mean Richard was 29 and Elizabeth 14 ???   when they married - IT IS POSSIBLE - but I would have thought unlikely...maybe a bit more research is required

I have posted the 1699 marriage in Broughton - IN CASE they are Richards parents ??  they look more likely to me

Thanks for that Garstonite

Elizabeth Lowther died at Gressingham 9th January 1809 aged it was said 94 so that must have been  the 1729 wedding. I can't find Richards burial  at Gressingham on Lancs OPC . If its correct she must have been a child bride.
Souterstead is the name of a farm at Torver

Hi ALL

Its getting rather complicated  Richard and Elizabeth Lowther married 1729 of Souterstead Elizabeth wife of Richard was recorded as being buried in jan 1741 at Torver. Richard remarried on 12 apr 1747 to a Sarah Park of Monk Coniston in Hawkshead parish at Torver 12 apr 1747.

I've also found a record for a Thomas Lowther being christened at Torver 22nd feb 1682 .son of Richard .

I think a lot of further research is required into the accuracy of the earlier records of this tree.
