Hello Os.,I did many years ago copy the Quaker records held in Carlisle. but these are only the Cockermouth records. I have 3 pages of Borranskell:Benson:and Fearon.Thanks for the information about John and Peter Fearon.I am sure they come into mine.I think that Abner maybe a son of one of them who went to USA - is Abner an American name ?? In the early dates I copied there is mention of a John and a Peter.
I have a marriage of a Francis Benson of Salte Coat in Holm Cultram who married Anna Gill of Eaglesfieldthey marriage at Pardshaw Cragg3rd day of 5th month 1701 Wts.James Benson; JohnGill; Jn. Barne: Elizabeth Gill: Thomas Fearon: Hen. Wright: James Dickinson; Mary Gill: Christopher Pearson: Peter Pearson: and John Pearson - the latter 3 I may have copied down wrongly and should they be Fearon !I have lots more on Benson: Fearon: and Borranskell (my family)So, if you have a Benson, or a Fearon you are interested in let me know please. Births: Sarah Fearon d.o. Matthew1691 Mary1694 Ann1697
Pardshaw Monthly MeetingBook Nos. 308-321. The first one which I made a note of Book 308 Jacob Fearonson of Peter Fearon of Gt. Broughton born12th day of the 8th month 1696
You say John Fearon was a Carpenter -so was my Abner Fearon.... They were well educated by the Quakers.... for now. Joan Borrowscale ( nee Borranskell ?) LiverpoolUK
