We are trying to locate Frances Walker, ne Rigg, who was living in Dovenby in 1854with her three children, Isaac, Sarah and John. Her husband was Dickinson Walker, my husbands GGGranfather.

He was found dead in the stable at Castle Gate that evening, suspected disease of the heart. He was aged 27 years. All this. Information was in the Cumberland Pacquet. He is buried in Bridekirk churchyard, plot G13. In the 1861 census, the children are living with grandparents, John and Isaac with the Riggs and Sarah with the Walkers.

red mail Sancton
Hannah Sancton. My gt gt gt grandmother was born around 1788 (presumably to the Cockermouth family but I have not checked this Parish register for that - yet!) She married John Townley 16.02.1811 in Manchester Cathedral (one of those massed weddings no doubt!) and brought up a large family in Hulme, Manchester, in the 19th century. In 1861 she was a shopkeeper in Booth Street - (now slap in the middle of Manchester University!) aged 73. 24 Sanctons on 1841 census, (7 Marys, 3 Sarahs,  Elizabeths. Mostly women... name died out?) Only 3 on the 1881 census 2 in Preston, 1 in Bromley). The census shows the Cockermouth Sanctons living off the income from houses. Probably bought by the Woolen Manufacturer? The local history library will have stuff no doubt! After a google search I found - Inscription on the grave of Eleanor Sancton Location - Allerdale Council Cemetery . Date of birth is , date of death is 30/06/1862 Plan location : A. Plot no : 739?. In Memory of Eleanor, daughter of Edward Sancton of Cockermouth Woollen Manufacturer who died June 30th 1862 Aged 69 Years Also of Sarah his daughter who died Feby. 17th 1874 Aged 83 Years Also of Mary his daughter who died Jany. 19th 1888 Aged 80 Years. I have access to the UK census and noted that the surname SANCTON, and from folk still around in 1841 it seems to originate uniquely in Cockermouth! I saw a couple of Sanctons had moved to Ormskirk and Liverpool too. Oh, BTW - upset to see about the floods you have had - 2009.. Dave
