I'm descended from some Barnard Castle ARROWSMITHS and am eager to learn more about their antecedents as well as their other descendents.
My oldest known ARROWSMITH relatives are Michael and Mary ARROWSMITH of Barnard Castle, who had a son, Robert ARROWSMITH, b. 1767.
Robert ARROWSMITH married Eleanor BELL of Barnard Castle, Durham Co., in 1796, and had several children:
Johanna ARROWSMITH, b. 1807 in Startforth, Yorkshire (just across the river - this is my ancestor) William ARROWSMITH George ARROWSMITH Robert ARROWSMITH Jane ARROWSMITH Charles ARROWSMITH Hodson/Hodgson ARROWSMITH Mary ARROWSMITH Thomas ARROWSMITH
