      Hi to you both. Our interest in the Ellwood family stems from Colin’s Grandmother Mary Ann Anderson Ellwood whom we have been able to race back to Dufton, due to both Bruce Morrison’s research and that of Adrian Taylor. I can’t connect John Ellwood 1792 to the family except by reference to his baptism record on the Mormon site, son of Mark Ellwood and Elizabeth Huck; but I can’t find their marriage record. Another visit to the records office in Whitehaven or Kendal is necessary, I think. I did a lot of research on the Ellwood and Pickering family about six years ago and have left it alone since to concentrate on my family history. You have renewed our interest.

      I have posted my photo, on your site, of a plaque in Dufton Church. It reads’ Mr Jno Ellwood by deed dated July 16th 1835 gave £6 6s out of Sandrigg’s Estate to be distributed every Christmas Day as follows,viz.:to 10 poor widows or poor householders of the Parish of Dufton, also to 5 poor widows or householders of the township of Knock 5s and a half stone loaf of the finest Wheaten Bread each. The overplus to be appropriated towards the education of poor widows’ sons of the Parish of Dufton at Dufton school’. I wonder if this is the same John? It’s not clear whether or not this is part of his inheritance or a good will gesture during his lifetime. What do you think?

      Best wishes Hilary

      Yes, that seems to be OK, and that seems to be the John who married Agnest

      Trouble is, the only likely John on FamilySearch was baptised in Kirkby
      Stephen, and shown as the son of Mark and Elizabeth, who seem to have not
      other connections.

      But there are also two earlier John Ellwoods who married Agneses:

      John Ellwood born in Brampton about 1797 married an Agnes Hoggarth born in
      Cartmel, Lancashire about 1797. They were married in Kendal in 1826, and had
      two daughters, Margaret and Agnes.

      Margaret and Agnes two brothers, Anthony and Thomas Barnes and both had
      families. Agnes Ellwood (born Hoggarth) was staying with her daughter
      Margaret in the 1881 census, and died in 1892. They all lived at Strickland

      Quite straightforward, until you look at the Hoggarth side. There is a niece,
      Agnes Hoggarth (aged 3) staying with John and Agnes Ellwood in the 1851
      census, born in Kendal. OK, she could be a daughter of Agnes senior's
      brother, but in 1862 she appears, aged 13, staying with one of the Barnes
      brothers, as a servant. And also with them is yet another Agnes Ellwood, aged
      15, born in Ambleside.

      The younger of these appears to be the daughter of Henry and Mary, baptised
      in Kendal in 1847. But there are TWO Henrys and Marys, one couple married in
      1830 and the other in 1835. And one one of these couples had a son called
      John Ellwood Hoggarth, born 1841, died 1845. These Henry Hoggarths surely
      can't be brothers, though perhaps they might be cousins. So is Agnes born
      1847 the sister or perhaps the second cousin of John Ellwood Hoggarth, born

      And then there is the OTHER John and Agnes Ellwood who lived in Cartmel,
      Lancashire (where Agnes Hoggarth is shown in the censuses as having been
      born). Was she yet another Agnes Hoggarth?

      The more we discover, the more confusing it seems to get!
