332Samuel & Hannah Ellwood
- Jul 24, 2014I sent some reports to Nicola Thwaite by personal e-mail, as I did not think
they would interest everyone on the list, but I'm commenting here on some of
the points she made in reply, as others might be interested and possibly have
some information to contribute.
These concern James the son of Samuel Ellwood.

As for the birthplace of James, we got that originally from Barbara Newby on
Mundia, but I don't think she had the baptism information, so we've amended
Concerning the marriage in Kendal, it seems that, even though Samuel &
Hannah's four children were baptised at Cartmel, though some sources suggest
that the youngerst, Isabel, was born at Kendal. She died at Newton aged 9.
It seems that the family may have returned to the Kendal area for a while,
for John to have met his future wife, Jane Coulthre3d, there. So it is
possible that James also met his future wife there.
Bear in mind that these places are not very far away from each other.
Underbarrow is within 5 miles of Cartmell Fell (4.4 as the crow flies).
Cartmell Fell is in the same parish as Cartmel, yet is closer to Underbarrow
than it is to Cartmel, and is only one mile farther from Kendal than it is

I'll see if I can find those. There are a fair number of related Ellwoods in
Liverpool too, so we'd need to go through what we have on them.
