Ive been looking quite a lot at this Edmund (born c 1770, son of Edmund
Ellwood and Anne Rudd) recently -- will send family group sheets to anyone
who is interested for comment/correction.
He's not our direct ancestor, but several people on the list seem to be
descended from him.
The only record of a marriage of an Edward to an Elizabeth we have been able
to find is to an Elizabeth Robinson in Carlisle on 14 Oct 1725. But the only
chidren of Edmund and Elizabeth born soon after were all born in Dufton:
Samuel (1726) m. Hannah Barrow ???
Daniel (1728) m. Hannah Crewdson
Lydia (1730) m. William Robinson
Elizabeth (1732) died in infancy
Ann (1734) m. William Morris
John (1738) died in infancy
And, as you have shown, around 1740 they moved to Bolton, and were in
financial difficulties there in 1742. Samuel does not appear to have been
with them then. He would have been about 14-16 then. Was he apprenticed
Samuel seems to be the most problematic, at least for us. Other people's
trees show descendants, but they aren't always consistent with each other,
and we haven't been able to find any confirmatory records on line. Of course
not everything is available on line for checking, and they may have seen
records that have not been transcribed or filmed yet.
Do you have anything on him and his descendants?
