The Lancasters of Paythorne in Gisburn

Part of an attempt to reconstruct the family trees of the Lancasters of Gisburn

This page is a result of a joint effort in genealogy, involving a certain amount of speculation. The family tree reconstructed below is a work in progress, and ideas would be extremely welcome. Also, if you intend to use it, please contact us first so that we can try to avoid the propagation of error or misunderstanding.

Earlier drafts of related family trees for Gisburne Lancasters were first published on the web by Craig Thornber, for his own ancestral Gisburne Lancasters. See From that starting point other webpages have tried to cover other Gisburne Lancasters. This particular webpage is dedicated to trying to cover the biggest branch which can convincingly link with a real paper trail. The main contributors have included Rick Lancaster, Craig Thornber, Pat Gaskin, Bob Dodgson, Beth Mead, Patsy Mellor, Tricia Coll, and Andrew Lancaster.

1? Christopher Lancaster. There is a name we can propose, Christopher Lancaster, as the starting point in this tree before Thomas Lancaster. He is the father who appears in the parish baptism register of Gisburn as the father of a Thomas Lancaster at about the right time. We also know from the will of William Longcaster, husbandman in Pathorne made 8 February 1576 and proved 24 April 1577 (v.21 f.5) that he had a second son named Christopher Lancaster in Paythorne whose children stood to take over the Lancaster holdings there. William’s wife was Isabell, and his heir who did not yet have male issue was John. But, he also had a son Christopher whose heir could inherit later if John died without lawful male heir. So maybe Christopher did have children or at least a wife already, and John did not? There were also two daughters of William, Agnes and Alice. Alice was unmarried. This William was in turn quite likely the son of James Lancaster of Paythorne, known from tax and muster records in 1522, 1539, and 1545. He was buried 21 March 1560/61. There were also Lancasters in nearby Newsholme and Bank Newton in the early 1500s and by the time of Christopher also in West Halton and Swinden. The earliest record in this area for a Lancaster is the 1379 poll tax, which shows one living in Eshton in nearby Gargrave. Unfortunately records for the 1400s are not good, this being the time of the War of the Roses, so we have no way to take the paper trail beyond the Tudor period in the 1500s at this time.

1.1. Thomas Lancaster of Paythorne “senior”. Made his will in March 1642, which was proved February 1645/6, corresponding to a burial 1 April 1643 for a Thomas of Paythorne. His will mentions his wife (un-named in the will), who must have survived him, plus children Thomas, Alice, Anne and Richard. His son Thomas is heir to his tenement. His baptism, like that of his son Thomas and grandson Thomas, might not be in the register, but there was a Thomas baptised in 1578, a son of Christopher.

+ Alice? Burial 20 January 1662/63. Alice Relict Thomae Lancaster nup de Paiethorne.

1.1.1. Alice Lancaster. Mentioned in father’s will. Perhaps named after her mother.

1.1.2. Thomas Lancaster of Paythorne, yeoman, buried 17 June 1694, and probably baptised around 1605. There was a Thomas baptised 13 May 1627, son of William Lancaster of Newsholme, and another one 1617, son of John Lancaster the mercer, but neither seem to match this one. (The Paythorne Lancasters seem to have been a separate family from the Newsholme line going back to at least 1522, and John Lancaster the mercer seems to have also been a member of that family. See separate web page for speculation about earlier Lancaster family trees.) Will dated 16 December 1692 mentions wife Margrett, sons Thomas, John and William (William was said to be of Paythorne in Admon dated 10 July 1694), and daughters Mary, the wife of Stephen Corlas, and Alice the wife of John Lawkland. The son John Lancaster also had a son William who was not yet 21. Inventory dated 20 June 1694. Thomas appears in government tax records for Lady Day 1672 Hearth Tax, for which he had an exemption certificate for one hearth.

+Margrett. Buried 18 Sep 1708. Relict of Thomas, and one of the Lancasters of Windy Pike (her son William’s family). Thomas Lancaster of Paythorne, husbandman. Will made 27 May 1706. Buried 1 July 1706. Will mentions wife Anne, brothers William and John, with John having a son William; also sister Mary Corlas, with daughters Margarett, Elizabeth and Lidia, with Lidia not yet being 21. Two Mattocks are also left money. On the Admon of the last day of December 1706, his brother William is “of Windy Pike”.

+Ann Mattock. 12 December 1692. Ann’s will of 1718 (relict of Thomas Lancaster of Paythorne) mentions “John Mattock son to my late brother John", and  "William Mattock son to my late brother William”. She mentions various other Mattocks but most importantly her sister Bridget apparently had the married surname Dodgson, and two sons John and Laurence, who she appointed as executors. If I udnerstand correctly, the admon implies that the mother had to play a role because the boys were still in their minority. Alice Lancaster. Baptised 28 January 1648/9 daughter of Thomas of Paythorne. Burial in Gisburn register 7 May 1700: Alicia Vxor Johes Lawkland pochia de Giggleswick.

+John Lawkland of Giggleswick. John Lancaster of Newby, Todber, and Gaisgill. Born 16 February and baptised 18 February 1654/5, son of Thomas Lancaster of Paythorne. Because his son William was still less than 21 in 1692, this John corresponds to John of Newby, then of Todber, and then (in will written in 1712) of Gaisgill. Because this latter will contained a lot of detail we can tentatively reconstruct a family based on comparing registers to the children’s names and ages. Also, that this John’s father was a Thomas is perhaps more likely given that he appears to have buried three sons named Thomas between 1687 and 1693, before finally succeeding to have a son who is then mentioned in his will.

+ Margaret, mentioned in will of John of Gaisgill. Buried 19 Jun 1713 in Gisburn. It is possible but unlikely that John had also married Ellen Clark – unlikely (at least if I am correct that John from Paythorne later moved to Newby, Todber and Gaisgill) because when she was buried 25 March 1690, her husband was again specifically John Lancaster of Gisburn. For my suggestions see the early Lancasters page. An archive record MD335/1/1/25/13 records “1694 Bargain and sale of ground called The Wath on the north side of Rimington Beck, John Lancaster of Todbar to John Sagar of Rimington”. William Lancaster, not yet 21 in 1694. Therefore probably baptised 22 May 1681 “Willmus filius Johis Lancaster de Newby”. Seems to also appear in John of Gaisgill’s will. An un-named child buried in 3 Jun 1714, was the child of William of Gaisgill, showing that William lived to adulthood but that he was probably distinguished from other Williams alive in the parish at that time. His wife might have been Jane, a widow of Newby who was buried 15 Aug 1735. The wedding might be the one 8 May 1707 between William of Stirk House and Jeneta Andrews. (Might this instead have been William Lancaster the “supposed child” of John Lancaster the mercer?) Another possibility is William Lancaster “senior” of Walton House in Ellenthorpe Grange who was buried 19 April 1712 (leaving a will). From the will it appears this William had no children but his wife was Dorothie, and he had some connection to the Dodgsons, presumably those of Ellinthorpe, who were also closely related to the Paythorne Lancasters. (Might Dorothy have remarried in 1735 to Thomas Foster?) Possible children: Margaret daughter of William of Gisburn. Baptised 15 September 1709. John son of William of Gisburn. Baptised 8 February 1710/11. Margarett. Baptised last day December 1682. Margreta fil : Johis Lancaster de Newby. Seems to appear in John of Gaisgill’s will. Grace baptised 16 Nov 1684 Gratia fil: Johis Lancaster de Newby. Grace Hillton in father’s will.

+ Rob Hillton mar. 1711 in Manchester (Boyds) Thomas. bap.     9 Aug 1687. Thomas filius Johis Lancaster de Sodber. Buried 7 Jan 1687/88. Thomas filius Johis Lancaster de Todber. Thomas. Buried 16 May 1689. Thomas filius Johis Lancaster de Todbarr Thomas bap.      6 Nov 1692. Thomas filius Johis Lancaster de Todbarr. Thomas. bap.     3 Sep 1693. Thomas filius Johis Iancaster de Todbarr. Seems to be the Thomas mentioned in his father’s will. Perhaps Thomas of Howgill?  Perhaps married Susan, widow of Howgill, who was buried 27 February 1782. Thomas junior? Perhaps married Mary, widow of Howgill, buried 14 November 1789. Elizabeth daughter of Thomas Junior of Howgill, baptised 20 June 1731. Perhaps married John Sellars 22 July 1756. Mary, daughter of Thomas of Howgill, baptised 14 August 1718. John, son of Thomas of Howgill, baptised 27 March 1720. Margaret, daughter of Thomas of Howgill, baptised 27 December 1721. Anne daughter of Thomas of Howgill, buried 1 May 1726. Mary. Baptized 20 Apr 1695. Maria filia Johis Lancaster de Todbarr.

+ Henry Geldard married 1 Nov 1715 in Gisburn “Maria Lancaster of Gaisgill”. Anne. Baptised 15 Aug 1697. Anna filia Johis Lancaster de Todbar. Less than 21 in John of Gaisgill’s will. Problem: burial of 1 November 1697: Anna filia Johis Lancaster de Todbarr, so our theory requires another Anne missing from the register. Sarah. Baptised 13 Aug 1699. Sarah filia Johis Lancaster de Todbarr. Less than 21 in John of Gaisgill’s will.

+William Eccleston of Barnoldswick Married 23 Sep 1721. John. Mentioned in father’s will about 1713, but not in uncle’s will about 1692. Buried 25 November 1770 “of Gaisgill”.

+ Ellen Tomlison 5 Nov 1713. “of Gaisgill”. Buried 3 Feb 1758. Mary Lancaster. Born 4 October and baptised 11 October 1657, daughter of Thomas Lancaster of Paythorne.

+Stephen Corlas of Newsholme. Married 26 Feb 1676/7 in Gisburn. Probably buried 20 February 1692/3. They had many children, many of whom died young: An unnamed one buried 15 March 1680/81, Agnes buried 30 January 1683/4, another un-named one 1 September 1692, Alice baptised 1687 and buried 17 November 1694, Stephen buried 6 September 1695, Anna buried 17 January 1697/8; and from their uncle’s will, Margarett, Elizabeth, Lidia, with Lidia less than 21 in 1716. William Lancaster of Paythorne and Windy Pike (Gulmi: patr. of familes of Paythorne, buried 20 Mar 1728/9 at Gisburn. Born 27 Feb, baptised 4 March, 1659/60. In his father’s will he had been left West Croft in Newsholme, but in his brother’s admon he is of Windy Pike. William's own will of 20 June 1729 mentions an elder son William, younger son Christopher, daughter Elizabeth who was the wife of Thomas Turner of Heaning in Slaidburn, daughter Ellen and beloved wife Ellen.

+ Ellen Wilkinson married last day of March 1695. “Ellena Uxor Wilmi Lancaster de Paythorn” buried 26th September 1700. Margaret, daughter of William of Paythorne, born 24 May, baptised 23 June 1696. Possibly buried 17 May 1700 (Margaret daughter of William).

+ Ellena Dodgson on 28 August 1701 (Ellen, relict Gulmi of Paythorne buried 13 July 1731, at St. Mary's Gisburn. She was baptised 21 Jan 1675/6 at St. Mary's Gisburn and was the daughter of Christopher Dodgson and Elizabeth Serginson. William Lancaster of Bolton by Bowland baptised 15 April 1703 (of Windy Pike), and died relatively young, and seemingly suddenly. He was buried 18 May 1730 (Gisburn register, but “of Bolton”).  His will dated 12 May 1730 mentions wife Ann (Ann Ryley signed the will), sister Elizabeth the wife of Thomas Turner, brother Christopher and sister Ellen. The will leaves Windy Pike and other lands in Paythorne to his brother Christopher. Inventory was made 5 June, Admon on 21 September, and the file was closed 14 October.

+Anne Ryley on 23 April 1724 in Bolton by Bowland. She was probably baptised 7 Dec 1701, Bolton by Bowland. Appears to have re-married in Bolton with Richard Hardacre of Long Preston 11 May 1734, and to have had a daughter Agnes Hardacre baptised 26 Dec 1736. Speculation: Richard Lancaster of Bolton by Bowland married Mary Hargreaves of Addingham 5 Nov 1757. This couple appear to have moved to Colne, and their descendents, the Lancasters of the Macleay Valley in NSW, have confirmed a close DNA match with the Gisburn Lancasters. But Richard did not appear in William Lancaster’s will, nor in any baptismal register found so far. Richard and Mary appear to have had 3 children as Richard and Mary of Colne, and 2 children as Richard and "Molly" or "Mally" of Mosshouses, just to the north of Colne near Foulridge. Richard may be the burial 19 April 1788 - Richard Lancaster of Foulridge.

See Lancasters.html for discussion about this family. This theory is only one of several, and not necessarily the most likely explanation of the DNA link between the two families. Thomas G Lancaster, baptised 25 Jan 1704/05 buried 25 Aug 1728. Christopher Lancaster of Paythorne and Windy Pike, baptised 27 March 1707. Christopher of Windipike buried at Gisburn 10 November 1793.

+ Agnes Dodgson on 7 June 1731 at St. Mary's Gisburn. She was baptised St. Mary's Gisburn on 7 June 1705, the daughter of Robert Dodgson and Agnes Brown. She was buried on 18 March 1787 at Gisburn Ellena Lancaster, baptised 2 September 1731 and is probably the Ellen who died 1733 Ellen, Lancaster, baptised 1 Feb 1733/34. She married Henry Hall on 2 January 1759 at St. Mary's Gisburn and was buried 26 May 1785. William Lancaster of Ellenthorp and Windy Pike, born 20 Feb, baptised 6 March 1734/35 and died Windy Pike, buried 5 June 1814 at St. Mary's Gisburn. Will dated 1 March 1815 mentions “sons Christopher Lancaster William Lancaster, Tempest Lancaster and my two daughters Milisent Hewit now the wife of Henry Hewit and Agnes Dean the wife of Henry Dean”. By 1841 there were no Lancasters in Windy Pike or Ellinthorp, and this line seems to have ended unhappily:-

+ Millicent Slinger (1747-1814) on 19 Feb 1775 at Gisburn. He was a farmer and Millicent Slinger a Spinster. Witn: Wm Varley & Mary Dean. Millicent was the daughter of Tempest Slinger and perhaps Anne Fotherill (Fothergill) and was born at Slaidburn, buried 5 June 1814 aged 67.

NOTE: The same combination of parents’ names (William and Millicent) occurs soon after in nearby Padiham: Edmund Lancaster, baptised 3 August 1800 in Padiham, Lancashire. Susan Lancaster, born 27 December 1804, baptised 13 January 1805, and according to the IGI, buried 13 April 1809, in Padiham. Pat Gaskin believes the parents in this case were from Bury, with Millicent’s maiden name being Taylor in that case. Millicent Lancaster, born 1774 (1785?), married Henry Hewitt on 20 April 1808. Nancy Spaeth is a descendant who has studied this line. Patsy Mellor advises: “Millicent Hewitt died 15th June 1848 at Coppice, Gisburn (death cert). She was buried at Gisburn 21st June (Parish Register). Cause of death mental derangement five years and bed sores four months.” Christopher Lancaster, s. William Lancaster of Ellinthorp, baptised 13 Jan 1776 at Gisburn. Died 3 September 1865. In 1841 appears to be in York castle with brother Tempest. He is shown as a 65 year old farmer. Patsy informs me that both Christopher and Tempest died in debtors prison there. Rick Lancaster mentions a lease document of 1799 that implies children William, Thomas and Christopher? William Lancaster s. Wm. of Ellinthropp, born 4 Oct 1778 and bapt. 31 Dec 1778 at Gisburn. This is one of three Williams in this family who were born about the same time, at least two of whom married a Jane. They are difficult to distinguish and so marked specially in green on this webpage. According to Patsy Mellor, this William emigrated to Philadelphia. However if this is correct then the below family may not belong to this William, as Tempest was in England in 1851 and 1861. On the other hand it is hard to imagine any other family using the personal name Tempest. Might Tempest have chosen to stay? Might he even have returned?

+ Jane Ellis. Married in 1803. The marriage was in Bolton by Bowland: “William Lancaster of Gisburn, Farmer, & Jane Ellis of this par., spin., mar. by Licence by Josias Dawson, Curate -- Wm Lancaster, Jane Ellis—[and witnesses] Thos Rawsthorn, Chris Lancaster”. There is a burial record at Gisburn for Jane wife of William Lancaster, grocer Gisburn and second daughter of Francis Ellis of Bolton by Bowland, 19 May 1809. James baptised 24 July 1804 and buried 27 July 1804.             double check? (I think only 24 July burial, and father has middle name Dobson). See Christopher born May 1807; baptised 6 Jul 1807. Register names parents as “Wm of Gisburn & Jane”. Buried 6 August 1807, “Son of Wm and Jane Lancaster Gisn”. William born 29 Nov 1805, baptised 23 Jun 1805. Register names parents as “Wm of Gisburn & Jane”. Buried 1 Jan 1809, “Willm Son of William Lancaster Guisburn”. Tempest Lancaster born 17 Mar 1809 baptised 17 Mar 1809. Register names parents as “Will of Gisburn & Jane” 1851: 45 year old farm servant in Grindleton. 1861: 55 year old Ostler in Clitheroe. Presumably, if he was really in this family, his mother may have died as a result of the birth. Note that this personal name descends from the well known Tempests of Bracewell, who would be ancestors via the Slingers, who also used Tempest as a personal name. Tempest died in Clitheroe in second qtr of 1869, aged 61 (8e/192). Patsy notes: “He was a farm labourer and died from bronchitis and diarrhoea at Greenwoods, Grindleton on 22nd April 1869 aged 61 years. John Rudd of Holden at Bolton by Bowland was present at the death and the informant. It looks like Tempest was in poor circumstances. On the census for 1871 John Rudd's occupation was given as Relieving Officer. That must have been a position for looking after the poor and giving poor relief under the old Poor Law.” Agnes Lancaster, d. Wm. of Ellinthropp, baptised 21 Feb 1781 at Gisburn.

+Henry Dean on 25 December 1810, with child Henry Dean born in 1811. Tempest Lancaster s. Wm: & Milison of Ellinthorp, born 31 Aug 1789 and bapt 27 Sep 1789 at Gisburn, buried at York. 1841 census: 40 year old farmer in York Castle, with his brother Christopher. He died in York in the last quarter of 1847. Patsy informs me that both Christopher and Tempest died in Debtors Prison there. John Lancaster s. Wm. & Millison Lancaster of Ellinthrop, born 15 Jan 1795 and bapt 16 Jan 1795 at Gisburn. Moved to Halton West in neighbouring Long Preston as an adult, and farmed there. I wonder if they emigrated before 1841.

+ Ellen Elsworth (Elswith) in Long Preston. Marriage 8 June 1819 by licence, and both were said to be of the parish. Witness was Tempest Lancaster. William baptised 16 July 1820, Gisburn. John baptised 19 September 1821, Gisburn. Melicent baptised 15.5.1825 in the parish of Long Preston. Daughter of John and Ellen farmer of Halton West. Mary Anne born 5 March 1832, baptised 28 April 1833, Gisburn. (Maybe some doubt about whether she is from the same family, because of the delay? In any case this Mary Anne seems to be the one who lived with her father in Foulridge in 1851. He was a tea dealer, born about 1801 in Gisburn, and she was born in Marton.) Thomas Lancaster of Moorhouse, baptised 30 June 1737 and buried 19 November 1803 at Gisburn when described as of Moor House.

+ Elizabeth Charnley aged 21 when he was 25 years old and a farmer of Gisburn on 23 May 1765. Buried at Gisburn as Eliz, wife of Thos of Moor-house, 7 July 1790. Ian Metcalfe informs me that she was born 21 Dec 1743 and bapt. 11 May 1746 in Mitton, Waddington. And that her parents were Robert Charnley and Mary Lonsdale, who had married 30 July 1732 in Waddington. Ellen Lancaster, d. of Thomas Lancaster of Moor House, baptised 25 March 1765, at Gisburn, buried 4 May 1849. She lived in Loftrans. Christopher Lancaster of Moorhouse, s. of Thomas of Moor House, baptised 4 April 1767 at Gisburn, died 30 Aug and buried 3 Sept 1855 of Moorhouse, aged 88. In 1851, at Moorhouse, he was a farmer of 220 acres, with 2 labourers. He appears to have donated the stone for the new Methodist chapel in Paythorne in 1829.

+ Ann Carr (1776-1828) married at Gisburn on 15 Dec 1803 when he was a farmer and she a spinster and witnesses were T. Wilson and J. Lancaster. There was also a Marriage Bond/Allegation 9 February 1803 which says their ages were both 21. Ann died 20 June and was buried 24 Jun 1828 aged 52. Chris appears to be in the 1841 census in Moorehouse, 70 years old; and in 1851 (usually more accurate) he is 84 years old, and has not only children but also two grand children: Elisabeth Ellis 2, and Catherine Watson 3. Nanny, d. Chrs & Ann Lancaster of Moorhouse 29 Feb 1804, bapt. 06 May 1804 at Gisburn. Buried as Ann, d. Christopher of Moor House, 15 Jun 1805 at Gisburn. Thomas, s. Christopher & Ann Lancaster of Moor house, born 13 January 1805 and bapt 16 Feb 1805 at Gisburn. Buried 19 Jun 1805, s. Christopher of Moorhouse. Christopher Lancaster of Paythorne s. Christopher & Ann Lancaster of Moorhouse born 28 September 1805, bapt 31 Dec 1805 at Gisburn. 1841 census in Moore House with parents. Seems to appear in 1851 census in Moorehouse, 44 years old, with father, born about 1767. In 1861 he is 64 and living with two sisters, and Margaret Ellis, a niece. In 1841 he is about 35 years old. He died 3 June 1865 and was buried with his parents in Gisburn on the 7th, at which time he was 59 years old. His father’s will names two sons who are not to inherit. Were they perhaps illegitimate? By 1871 a Hartley family was living in Moorhouse. Elizabeth d. Christopher & Ann Lancaster of Moor House born 28 Sep 1807 and baptised 01 Oct 1807 at Gisburn. In 1841 she is shown as 30 years old. Seems to appear in 1851 census in Moorehouse, 40 years, with father born about 1767. In 1861 she is in Gisburn 52 years old with brother and sister. In 1861 as well as later in 1871 and 1881 she appears with Ellis nieces – presumably daughters of her sister Margaret. Died 29 December 1881 and buried at Gisburn 2 January 1882, 74 years old. Ann d. Chrisr & Ann Lancaster of Moor-House born 21 Oct 1808 and baptised 22 Oct 1808. She married James Watson a grocer of Gisburn, 26 June 1831, in Gisburn, and had children James, Anne, Mary, John, Christopher, Thomas, Catharine and Henry. Mary d. Chrisr & Ann Lancaster of Moorhouse born 02 Jul 1811 and bapt. 24 Sep 1811 at Gisburn. In 1841 she is shown as 25 years old. Seems to appear in 1851 census in Moorehouse, 34 years, with father born about 1767. In 1861 she is in Gisburn 48 years old with brother and sister. Buried at Gisburn 11 July 1875 as a single woman, 64 years old. Margaret, baptised October 1813. In 1841 she seems to be at Moorehouse still with her father, and shown as 25 years old. Married John Ellis, a butcher of Gisburn, in May 1845 (21/283) and had 6 children: Ann, Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret, Catherine & Christopher. She died 25 June 1892, buried 29 June, in Rochdale. Catherine baptised 22 October 1815. Married Thomas Whipp 27 April 1836. This couple then became watchmakers in Wardleworth, Rochdale. Died June quarter 1877 (8e/49) aged 61 years in Rochdale, but buried 16 May 1877, Gisburn. Stephen, died in infancy. Baptised Aug 1819, buried 5 May 1820 Gisburn, 40 weeks old. Annis Lancaster d. of Thomas of Moor House, baptised 20 May 1768 at Gisburn and married Thomas Cook, farmer of Foot House Gate in Barley Booth 1 November 1794 in Newchurch in Pendle. See DDX 72/12 - Nov 1804. Thomas Cook left a will 18 Jan 1832, at which time he was a yeoman of Colne, with estates in the forest of Pendle. His Lancaster brothers-in-laws Isaac and Joseph were to hold some items in trust for younger children and grand-children (MBNE 59/24). Thomas Lancaster of Newfieldedge and Waddington, s. Thomas of Moor House, baptised 21 December 1769 at Gisburn, died 18 December 1850, buried 23 December 1850 (MI). His family eventually lived in Waddington, but in the 1841 census Thomas and Jane were in Bank Newton, Gargrave, along with the family of their son Thomas junior, and their adult daughter Ellen.

+ Jane or Jenny Hartley of Colne (1780-1857) on 6 April 1799 at St. Bartholomew's, Colne. Jane died 4 April 1857 aged 77. She was a tea dealer in Waddington in 1851. Her memorial inscription in Gisburn says she was of Clitheroe in 1857. Elizabeth, born 8 April 1800, baptised 13 April 1800. She married 27.2.1830 to Lawrence Kay. (This mentioned in her father's Will.) Thomas Lancaster s. Thomas & Jane of Newfieldedge, born 10 May 1802 and baptised 13 June 1802 at Gisburn. 1841 he and his wife were with his parents, in Gargrave. 1851 a cow keeper with 11 cows in Liverpool. 1861 a confectioner in Kirkdale, Liverpool. In 1871 Census Thomas 68 yrs old was living with his daughters Ann 30, Margaret 26, & Elizabeth Lund 32, & her husband Nicholas Lund 28, who was born Copenhagen, Denmark. All lived in Everton. In the 1881 census Thomas was living at West Derby with daughter Ann Finn & James her husband, a brickmaker. Also his son William 19, & 2 other children Mary Finn 4, & James 2. Ann's brother James Robinson Lancaster was also living with them. Both Thomas & James Lancaster were widowers & James was a ship's steward & Thomas a gentleman. He is perhaps the 88 year old “Retired Dairy Man” living in Kirkdale with his daughter Jane Cockshott in 1891. Died 13 Feb 1892. He is buried at Kirkdale.

+ Ellen Robinson, aged 21 at Gisburn on 28 November 1833, at which time Thomas was from Bracewell. Witnesses were Isaac Lancaster and Leonard Robinson. Jane bapt Gisburn 10 May 1834. 1851 census: an apprentice cook in Settle, 16 years old. Married 26 July 1855 to Joseph Cockshott. Died September quarter 1911 Kirkdale (8b/743).

Margaret, daughter of Thomas and Jenny      double check? Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Jenny      double check? William Lancaster s. Thomas Lancaster of Moor House, baptised 24 Aug 1771 at Gisburn. One of three Williams in this family, all born about the same time, at least two of whom married women named Jane. I have marked all three in green on this webpage, and these should be considered uncertain, as they are difficult to distinguish. There is a burial in Giggleswick: William Lancaster – Lofterance in the parish of Gisburn – 27 June 1840 – aged 68 – Roll 97. This age matches the Moorhouse William. 

+ Jane Heyes, married 15 February 1809. Charles Lancaster was a witness. William is described as a yeoman. William was granted probate for his wife Jane's estate in 1824. She was from Lane End in the Parish of Mitton. There is an 1841 burial record in Giggleswick: Jane Lancaster – Lofterance in the parish of Gisburn – aged 64 – Roll 187. This could correspond to a baptism in Giggleswick of 7 June 1777 to Thomas and Mary Hey. Thomas Lancaster son of William and Jane of Lofthorns (Loftrans?). Born 22 January 1811. Baptised 28 August 1811. Loftrans is very close to Moorhouse, and was also possessed by William’s Aunt Ellen. In 1841, Thomas Lancaster appears to be registered in the census as the farmer running Loftrans. He is shown as 25 years old, with a wife Susannah, also 25, and daughters Jane (3) and Ann (1). Susannah and Jane were not born in Yorkshire. In 1851 he is found in Liverpool, a cow keeper. From 1861 until at least 1881 he ran an Inn at 100 Boundary Street. In 1861 it is called the Thomaston Hotel. In 1881 it is the "Midland & Cheshire Lines Hotel". From Pat I know that there are two documents about his death: They mention he was a Licensed Virtualler, who died 4.6.1882 at Boundary St. His estate was worth 2031 pounds. 0s. 9d. The first document of 17th July names Susannah Lancaster of 100 Boundary St., widow, the Relict, as administrator. The second document on 15th August says it was "left unadministered by Susannah Lancaster, widow, the Relict" and therefore "was granted at Liverpool to Thomas Lancaster of 136 Frederick St., South Shields in the County Durham -engineer - son and oneof the next of kin." Pat gives his death certification ref as 8b/29.

+Susannah Higgins or Higgin (sometimes transcribed Wiggins). Born Burnley. They married 1837 at Burnley St Peter. Does not appear in 1871 census but back in 1881. She was christened on 5 Jul 1812 in Burnley, Lancashire, Eng.   Pat informs me that her will shows that she had died only a few days after her husband, on the 13th of June (ref. 8b/45 aged  71 yrs). Her will was proved by her son Thomas, who also had adminstration of her husband's will transferred to himself. Jane Lancaster born abt 1839 in Gisburne (birth register 1838 in Burnley) and became a housekeeper. Apparently married a Richard Singleton, but in 1871 was living at Inn with parents and brother’s family, a widow. Pat informs of a 2nd marriage for Jane 1876 to Thomas Dalrymple. Margaret Ann Lancaster. (Ann in 1841 census and Margert in 1851 census.) Born abt 1840 in Gisburn, and bapt. 9 March there. Birth registered 1840 in Gisburn. Not with the family in 1861. William Lancaster, baptised 18 April 1842 in Gisburn, and normally shows as born about 1843 in censuses (but note 1861 shows him younger than his brother John and born about 1848). Was still with his father in his 1881, working at the Inn. In 1871 he was referred to as a Barman there, and marked unmarried. Pat reports that he was at death a licensed victualler's Manager, a Bachelor, who died 9th November 1882 at Boundary St. Probate was Granted 30th November 1882, at Liverpool, to Susannah Lancaster of 100 Boundary St., Liverpool, widow, the Mother, and only next of kin. Personal Estate -  58 pounds 6 shillings 7 pence. John Lancaster, baptised 25 Oct 1844 in Gisburn. Does not appear in 1851 census. In 1871 he and two sons are with his mother Susannah, staying with her mother Ann Higgin, in Worsthorne. He has two sons with him, Thomas 5 and William 3.

+Eliza Kermode (married name Morrison or Morison), born in London, about 1839. Appears in 1871 census as a daughter in law with John in Hurstwood. William is the only son living there in the Inn at the time but Pat found the marriage 26.1.1865 at St. Thomas Church, Walton-on-the-Hill. At this time John was a publican, of 100 Boundry St., and the father Thomas Lancaster was described as a farmer. Thomas Lancaster. Born Liverpool about 1866.

Appears in Inn with mother and grandfather as grandson in 1871 census. Thomas Lancaster, born 27 June 1848 and baptised 23 July 1848 in Liverpool. Appears in 1851 census.

Pat reports he was born on 27 Jun 1848 in Gisburn, Yorkshire, and he was christened on 23 Jul 1848 in St. Johns Old Haymarket, Liverpool. Betty Lancaster, d.
