Sorry: *second* mentioned marriage

Subject: RE: [CUMB] Dickinson, Beeby, Williamson in Allonby
Yes, several of the earliest entries in the Allonby Quaker records are for Beeby.
John of Allonby married Ann Cowin [I wasn’t sure of the transcription of that—please excuse any lapses in my palaeography] in 1661 and they had several children.
Robert of Bowscales married Elizabeth Saul in 1663 and they had children.
Nicholas of Allonby married Mary Saul (sister to Elizabeth above) in 1670 and they had children.
There are more later—next for a John of Bowscales who I think is a son of the first mentioned marriage.
Thanks, Ian. I'll wait to see whether you can dig anything up. No hurry.
I'm currently reassessing the Dickinsons of Souterbank in Lamplugh. After Richard moved to Allonby, he sold (as the eldest son) his right in Souterbank to his younger brother David in 1672, and his Quaker family continued there before selling up in the 1770s (Richard's family remained at Allonby until the 1840s/60s ). It would be good to get some confirmation about Richard's wife, as she was quite an important figure in the Quaker movement (a biography in 'Piety Promoted'); so the difference between Beeby and Williamson is quite significant.

Can anyone tell me about the location of the Dickinson family in Allonby?
A Richard Dickinson (1631-1676) of Souterbank in Fell Dyke in Lamplugh married an Elizabeth from there, and moved to her home in Allonby in Bromfield.
Though Richard remained Anglican, his wife became a well-known Quaker travelling minister, and the children were brought up as Quaker.
In the past, it has been suggested to me that that she was a Beeby (which makes sense) but the Beeby family may have been settled outside the centre of Allonby, and this Dickinson family seems to have left its mark here:
As the site claims that the site has been owned by the Williamson family for 300 hundred years, and the Williamsons were Quaker, I'm now wondering whether Richard's wife was a Williamson rather than a Beeby. The Williamsons were Quaker also.
Of course, the designation of 'Dickinson Place' might come from a later period.
Steve Bulman's transcript of Bromfield Parish has:
"The principal land owners of Allonby are the executors of the late William Beeby, Jonathan Wilson, John Saul, Richard Dickinson"
so the Dickinson family weren't lacking in resources.
Any thoughts or knowledge from anyone?

Saturday 22 Dec 1810 (p. 3, col. 2)
On Sunday evening, between eight and nine o'clock, a poor woman was found lying under the city walls, opposite the county gaol. Her
condition was most deplorable: her back and left arm were broken, and she was otherwise very much bruised. She was brought into the
city, and every necessary assistance was immediately procured, but it was to no purpose: her mangled state of body rendered it
impossible either to move her, or to take off her clothes, after she had once been laid down. This unhappy sufferer languished in
excruciating pain till Tuesday evening. It appears from the statement given by herself, that she was a native of Edinburgh, who had
come to Carlisle on business; that during her stay, in consequence of her money having failed her, the woman of the house, with whom
she had lodged, had turned her out on the afternoon of Saturday. This led her to wander behind the walls adjoining the Abbey and the
county gaol, where she was met by two Irishmen, who began to behave rudely; and in consequence of the resistance that she made, they
threw her down from the wall, which is in height not less than 30 feet. A coroner's inquest sat on the body, and brought in their
verdict, wilful murder. We sincerely wish, that these inhuman monsters, who have proved themselves destitute of every principle of
humanity, may, by the all-seeing providence of God, be brought to public condign punishment.
The weather was very mild, this week, until Thursday evening, when a violent storm of hail, rain, and wind, took place; and, what is
very unusual in this climate, at this season, it was accompanied with thunder and very vivid flashes of lightning. The electric
fluid continued to illumine the atmosphere, at intervals, early yesterday morning.
SINGULAR INCIDENT.-A young child, son of Mr. George JAMIESON, pastor of the Baptist church in Whitehaven, when only a fortnight old,
sucked from about his mother's breast a small needle which he retained upwards of seven months; until at last it made its appearance
above the elbow, and was taken out last Tuesday se'nnight.
I've been looking at my transcripts of the Lamplugh Tithe Apportionment 1837, and think that I might have made an error. Unfortunately, I don't currently have access to the originals. If anyone happens to be in an appropriate record office, and feels like looking this up, I would be grateful for clarification.
The page reference on my website is:
I have described the holding of Spencer Jackson as Fell Dyke (south), but I think it may be Fell Dyke (north).
Furthermore, I'm not happy about a limestone quarry under the schedule number 572 [Fairy Hole Field]. There are two quarries nearby, but my existing maps [created from the original map, without the numbers] seem to indicate that these were under demesne ownership. If anyone could indicate where this field was from the 1837 Apportionment Map, I would be grateful.
My rumbutter pages on the Apportionment are not ideal. These were taken from an ebook that I made (maybe in 2005) - which is vastly better for searching. If anyone wants a copy, I'm happy to send one. Just ask me off-list.

From the account given in our last of the sale of Skiddaw for 1970l. it would appear that the whole of that extensive mountain had
been included in the sale; whereas we now learn that the land sold was merely the summit, consisting of rocks and loose stones, from
which, the soil had been washed away, and which until now, had been wholly improductive. There still remains on that side of the
mountain facing Keswick, &c. the manor of Brundholme, to be divided amongst the proprietors of land there, under the late inclosure
act, as much waste land as would produce in sale not less than 30,000l. and which has hitherto never produced equal to 50l. a year
for the proprietors.

A letter from Douglas contains a curious account of two merchildren lately discovered by three respectable tradesmen in that town,
during an excursion to the Calf of Man in quest of sea-fowl. Attracted by a sound somewhat resembling the cries of a young kitten,
they found, on searching amongst the rocks, two small marine animals, exactly resembling in their form that species of creature so
often described and known by the name of the merman. One of them was dead, and much lacerated by the violence with which it had been
driven on shore, during a violent gale of wind on the preceding night; the other was, however, conveyed to Douglas, where it still
remains, and seems to do well. It is 1 foot 11¾ inches in length, from the crown of its head to the extremity of its tail; 5 inches
across the shoulders; its skin is of a very pale brown colour, and the scales on its tail are tinged with violet; the hair (if it
may be so called) on its head is of a light green cast; it is attached to the crown of the head, only hanging loose about the face,
about four inches in length, very gelatinous to the touch, and somewhat resembling the green seaweed, commonly growing on rocks; its
mouth is small, and has no appearance of teeth. It delights much in swimming about in a large tub of sea-water, and feeds chiefly on
mussels and other shell-fish, which it devours with great avidity: it also now and then swallows small portions of milk and water,
when given to it in a quill.
That's great! I love it when the transcriptions are helpful.

Some of you may remember that a while ago (18 months maybe?), I solicited the help of the forum in the case of Léon Brulet, who went to USA leaving his wife and family behind in France, and marrying another woman over there in 1909. He was the one who seemed to get in on the ground floor of American film making --- Paragon and Pathe were mentioned.
My friend Sylvie is anxious to follow up on newspaper reports of an accident Léon had in 1915 (about May) in or around Boundbrook NJ. How does she find out about the local press? There also seems to have been a lawsuit subsequent to this accident.
A push in the right direction would be most welcome
I accidentally fell over the grave of the first wife when Sylvie and I were searching the village cemetery for something else entirely! Sylvie is investigating the life of the first wife after Léon deserted her.
Chris --- I have Fawcetts from Mosser in my Jenkinson family. Daniel (son of Peter and Elizabeth) 1671 – 1746 married Anne Allason 1695. Daughter Anne married a Todhunter, and their daughter married Daniel Jenkinson. This Daniel died after a fight in Whitehaven, leaving a pregnant wife; this fatherless child, another Daniel, is my ancestor.
