    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
