My 6xgreat-grandparents Edward Willan & Mabell Garnett married on 25 September 1712 at Kirkby Lonsdale, Westmorland, England. In the Marriage License of the same date Edward’s residence is given as “Toscatt” and Mabell’s as “Mansergh Hall Houses”, both in Kirkby Lonsdale. The children of Edward & Mabell, all baptised in Kirkby Lonsdale, were: • Thomas baptised 6 July 1713 • Alice baptised 12 September 1714 • Jane baptised 18 March 1715/6 • Thomas baptised 27 October 1717 • William baptised 12 November 1721
Edward’s parents were Thomas Willan & Alice Waithman who had married at Kirkby Lonsdale on 7 February 1690/1. The license for this marriage gave the residence of Thomas as “Tosker” and that of Alice as Kirkby Lonsdale.
According to the IGI, Mabell was baptised at Kirkby Lonsdale on 2 August 1690, the daughter of Thomas Garnett. There are two possible marriages for her parents. The first possibility is one for which a license survives, but it is not in the IGI and has not been traced in parish registers or Bishop’s Transcripts. The full extract for this license is : 13 August 1684 Thomas Garnett and Sarah Garnett, both of Barbon, p. Kirkby Lonsdale Bondsman: Nicholas Waterman, of Dent To Mr. Briggs and others The second possibility is the marriage of Thomas Garnett & Jane Ridding on 19 May 1688 at Kirkby Lonsdale. This is listed in the IGI but no license or parish register entry has been found. The marriage is also listed in the IGI as having been held in Sedbergh, Yorkshire on the same date.
Using mainly deeds I have been able to generate a provisional Family Tree for Mabel which has her father as Thomas jnr of Mansergh, her grandfather as Thomas snr of Mansergh and her great-grandfather as John Garnett of Chappell Garth.
