Cumbria Marriages

David Briggs has in his tree a Margaret Cumpstone who married one John Sowerby in 1816 at Kirkby Stephen. The IGI incorrectly lists her as Margaret Campstone.

 

David is connected to the Sowerby's by the marriage of his great-great uncle, Robert Casson, to Sarah Sowerby at Whitehaven in 1875.

There are only three other entries that I have at present with the same

surname as follows:

 

1753   Kirkby Stephen M067071   Kirkby Stephen Campstone Thomas Eliz Rukin      Marriage IGI 25 Feb 1753

1802   Kirkby Stephen M067071   Kirkby Stephen Campstone Edward Ann Slee       marriage IGI 21 Sep 1802

1815  Kirkby Stephen M067071   Kirkby Stephen Campstone Margaret John Sowerby       marriage IGI 16 Aug 1815

 

There are also another 2 'minus the E' on Campstone.  I suspect that these

are all part of my main Kirkby Stephen tree but have no further information

about them.

1824   Kendal M39649-8   Kendal Campston Mary     John Barrow s of Josiah       marriage IGI 1825

 

I would be most interested to know more about the Sowerby line.  The one record that I know about is recorded from A2A in the Circuit Schedule Book:

 

'in Wesleyan principles, etc. Executors and trustees: Robert Longstaff,

nephew, of Brough, blacksmith, and friends Jonathan and Edmund Thompson of

Longmarton, yeomen, Robert Scott of Brough tailor, John Sowerby of Brough,

shopkeeper, Thomas Fawcett of Kirkby.'

These documents are held at: Cumbria Record Office, Kendal
