    1. [ENG-WESTMORLAND] Birkett, Lancaster, Jackson, Harrison in Troutbeck, Windermere, Patterdale
    2. Laura x
    3. My brick walls are Henry LANCASTER (below), who lived in Troutbeck in the late 1700s and early 1800s. And, BIRKETT in Troutbeck or Windermere. George LANCASTER (bapt Dec 1805 in Troutbeck) married Mary JACKSON (of Patterdale) on 13 NOV 1826 in Windermere. George died in 1842, I believe in Ambleside where he was a butcher on the 1841 census. Mary JACKSON's parents were Joseph JACKSON and Ann HARRISON. George LANCASTER's parents were Henry LANCASTER and Agnes BIRKETT. Henry and Agnes married 13 JUNE 1791 in Windermere. Henry was born about 1763 (death date minus age). Henry was probably a Grocer in Troutbeck since that was Agnes' profession in 1829 and in 1841. Henry was buried in Troutbeck on 10 DEC 1817. Agnes BIRKETT (Henry Lancaster's wife and mother of George) was baptized 04 AUG 1769 in Troutbeck. Agnes was buried 20 MAR 1843 in Troutbeck, age 74. I believe Agnes BIRKETT's parents were William BIRKETT (a hatmaker) and Isabel BIRKETT, whose names appear on a marriage bond dated 12 JUNE 1758 for a marriage in Windermere. I'd love to hear from anyone who has more information on the parentage of Henry LANCASTER, or William and Isabel BIRKETT. Laura missingyvr@aol.com

    2. Cumbria FHS Admin
    3. Dear List Members. As advised by Lynne the Rootsweb ENG-Westmorland list will shortly be closed and this is being replaced by a list on the Cumbria FHS website. Note this list is open to anyone you do not have to be a member to use it. You will shortly be sent an invitation to join this new list, please carry out the instructions in that invitation to be added to this new list, you will not be automatically subscribed and if you do nothing then you will not hear anything further. If you wish to see more details about the lists available or you do not receive the invitation (check you spam folder first) then please check on the Cumbria FHS website www.cumbriafhs.com/maillists for instructions on how to join. The list will work in exactly the same way as this current list, the only differences will be the address which will be list-westmorland@cumbriafhs.com and the fact that you will now be able to post in HTML not just TEXT and will be able to add attachments if you wish. I will administer this list for the moment until a new owner for the list can be found. If anyone would like to take on the list then please contact me.

    2. Lynne
    3. Dear all I'm very pleased to announce that the Eng-Westmorland list will have a new home at Cumbria Family History Society (https://cumbriafhs.com), effective with the closing of RootsWeb lists on 2 March 2020. John Steel, webmaster of the Society, will give us the details on how to use the Society's facilities. Many thanks to you, John, and to the Society, for taking this on. Before this list closes, if you want future researchers looking at this list's archives to be able to contact you, post your interests. There are over 200 people subscribed to this list, but only one (thank you, Art!) has posted his Westmorland interests so that in the future he can be contacted. See my message at <https://lists.rootsweb.com/hyperkitty/list/eng-westmorland.rootsweb.com/thread/35503052/> for more about posting your interests. If your research takes you away from Westmorland, check out Groups.io where many former RootsWeb lists have been re-created. A search for keywords, such as the county name and the word RootsWeb, should bring up the relevant list. There's also a group just to announce former RootsWeb lists -- https://groups.io/g/RootsWeb-Announce -- but not all former RootsWeb lists are there yet. It's been a pleasure administering this list. I hope to see many of you on Groups.io or on the Ancestry/RootsWeb message boards. Take care and best of luck with your research. Kind regards, Lynne

    3. Saturday 29 Jun 1811 (p. 3, col. 3-5) We are desired to state that the public days of the Lord Bishop of Carlisle will be held at Rose Castle, on the two last Thursdays in July, and the two first Thursdays in August, at half past three on each day. On Sunday last the Rev. Mr. HENDERSON, of this town, preached a sermon in the Presbyterian Chapel, Penrith, for the benefit of the British and Foreign Bible Society; when the sum of £9 7s. 10d. was collected. Mr. Justice CHAMBRE and Mr. Baron WOOD have chosen the Northern Circuit for the ensuing assizes. The largest steam engine ever erected has been lately constructed for William Pit, near Whitehaven, by the directions of Lord Lonsdale. An idea of the quantity of water which may be thrown up by it may be conceived, when it is known to be not less than one hundred and twenty horse power.—We understand, that one much larger is about to be erected at Workington, for J. C. CURWEN, Esq. At Newcastle races, on Thursday, the gold cup was won Mr. RIDDELL's X, Y, Z; and the 50l. by Lord MONTGOMERIE's Diana. And on Friday, the 50l. for beaten horses was won by Mr. HODGSON's Woodpecker. During the thunder storm on Saturday week, three thousand five hundred panes of glass were broken in the gardens of Earl Fitzwilliam, at Wentworth, Yorkshire. The Experiment, COLLIN, of Maryport, is arrived at Richmond Bay, America, passage out 33 days: all well. The Ellen, THOMSON, of Maryport, is arrived at St. John's, America: all well. The Birkby, SCAIFE, of Maryport, is arrived at Quebec, in 26 days from Liverpool. The Wilson, NICHOLSON, of Whitehaven, is arrived at Antigua from Lancaster. The Castor, KENDAL, of Workington, is arrived at Liverpool from Amelia Island. The Spanish Patriot, FISHER, of Workington, is arrived at Cork from Trinidad. The Fletcher, WARD, of Workington, is arrived at Liverpool from Trinidad. [to be continued]

    3. Lynne, the list Mum, has asked me to stop sending transcriptions to this list as she thinks that will encourage everybody to post their interests. I can't see the logic of it but who am I to disagree with the list Mum... As I have transcriptions ready for dispatch until Saturday, I shall post them until then. Rootsweb has in any case been extremely temperamental over the last couple of weeks with my transcriptions often not getting through, so I may as well stop early before the Rootsweb lists are shut down anyway at the beginning of March. After Saturday, if you would like to continue reading my transcriptions, please look at them either on the Cumbria FHS Forum: https://cumbriafhs.com/smfmsgbrd/index.php Scroll down to the Transcriptions section and choose the Carlisle Journal board. Alternatively, subscribe to the Cumbria FHS sponsored Cumbria mailing list, to which I am also posting and will continue to do so as long as I still have transcriptions to post. You will find the link to register here: https://cumbriafhs.com/cgi-bin/cumbria/cfhs_main.pl?action=cfhs_maillist This list has the advantage over the Rootsweb lists that I can post in HTML, which allows for more formatting. The other list (in HTML) I have always posted to and will continue to do so is the Genealogy-Cumberland Google list, recently renamed Genealogy-Cumbria, which you can find here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!aboutgroup/genealogy-cumberland If you want to join, contact George, the list Dad, via the link given on that page.

    1. [ENG-WESTMORLAND] ADMIN: post your Westmorland interests
    2. Lynne
    3. Hello all Before RootsWeb lists are retired, it would be a good idea to post your interests to this and any other list to which you're subscribed so they're in the archives for future researchers to find. Here's what to do: - Create a new message. Do not reply to this message. - In the subject line, include the surnames you're researching (preferably in all caps) that are relevant to this list. If you are researching a lot of Westmorland surnames, create multiple posts so your messages aren't too long and cluttered. - In the body of your message, include the surnames (in all caps) and an idea of dates. If you have specific information you're seeking, include that, too. - Include your email address in your messages. For the @ sign in your email address, substitute a space and the word "at" followed by another space, e.g., NAME at yourISP.com. If your email address is not included in the body of the message no one will be able to contact you since RootsWeb strips the addresses from the From field. If you have any questions about this, please write to me privately off list. No, I still haven't made a decision about replacing this list. If you have questions or comments about that, write to me privately off list. I have to say that I'm extremely surprised at how many of you have questioned the future of this list considering how very few of you have posted over the last year. Quite a few replacement lists have been created at <Groups.io>. Take a look over there when you get the chance. You can search for lists by keyword. If you're looking for former RootsWeb lists, using the keywords RootsWeb and genealogy should pull up quite a few. A brand new group, RootsWeb-Announce, was created today for former RootsWeb admins to announce their new Groups.io groups. No announcements have been made to it yet, but it's hoped that in future the names of all the replacement lists will be found there. Kind regards, Lynne list owner

The swath is uncommonly heavy. On Tuesday last, a little boy, playing near the ditch adjoining the castle, fell into the water. Mrs. ROBINSON, wife of Sergeant ROBINSON, of the Forfarshire militia, overhearing the screams of the child's sister, rushed to the spot, and dragged him from amidst the mud, in which he was entangled. After for a considerable time using the proper means for restoring animation, she was so fortunate as to succeed in her benevolent object.-This is the second child that has been rescued by Mrs. ROBINSON's exertions from a watery grave. Lieut. Joseph DOVER, from the Royal Cumberland, and Ensign G. W. REVELEY, from the Royal Westmorland militias, have been appointed to Ensigncies in the 55th foot. The Northumberland militia will, in future, be cloathed, equipped, and trained, as a corps of Light Infantry. On Saturday last, Mr. James THISTLETHWAITE, travelling for a respectable house in Manchester, was drowned by his horse plunging into one of those dangerous breaks which occur on Lancaster Sands. On Wednesday se'nnight, as the masons were levelling the foot path near St. Nicholas's church, Newcastle, they discovered a rough stone coffin, of a curious form, with some bones in it. It was 6ft. 3in. in length. The Falcon, DIXON, from Whitehaven for Dublin, was put back on Friday se'nnight after being eleven days at sea. The Mariner, HURST, from Whitehaven and Cork, arrived at Trinidad the 13th of April in 55 days.---The Fletcher, WARD, Spanish Patriot, FISHER, both of Workington, were lying there. The Queen Charlotte, NICHOLSON, of Whitehaven, is arrived at Dublin, from Antigua. The Triton, FOX, of Whitehaven, arrived at Antigua on the 5th of last month. The Crosby, M'GAA, belonging to Workington, is arrived at Belfast, after wintering at Gaspe, North America.
