Hi, I have found some of the records about The Vicar of Boldre to be wrong, including my own.. Here is a correction transcribed from the fold-out included in the book: MEMOIRS OF DR. RICHARD GILPIN OF SCALEBY CASTLE IN CUMBERLAND: AND OF HIS POSTERITY IN THE TWO SUCCEEDING GENERATIONS; WRITTEN IN THE YEAR 1791, BY THE REV. WM GILPIN, VICAR OF BOLDRE, Together with an account of the author, by himself and a pedigree of the Gilpin family (Paper fold-out).
Edited by William Jackson, FSA; London: Bernard Quaritch; Carlisle: Chas. Thurman and Sons - 1879
Cumberland& Westmoreland Antiquarian &Archeological Society. (I own a book and the paper fold-out... nelda l. percival) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Margaret Gilpin b. 1725 died at Boldre July 14 1807 daughter of William Gilpin and Margaret Langstaffe
She married William Gilpin (Vicar of Boldre)
William Gilpinb.4 June, 1724 at Scaleby Castle died 14 july 1804, M.I.Bo.(coment - on the paper fold-out that was with the book - M.I.Bo. is also with Margaret's death listing so I take it to mean he also died at Boldre, which is how she is listed under her parents.)
His parents are John Bernard Gilpin & Matilda Langstaffe.
Her father William and his father John Bernard are brothers, but they are double first cousins... Her mother Margaret and his mother Matilda are sisters.
Now the children:
1. John Bernard Gilpin b. 16 July 1754 d. 11 May 1851, in Nova Scotia, Canada appointed Brittish Counsil for Rhode Island July 1818, married first Ann Simms 14 July 1874, 2nd Mary Elizabeth Miller, 20 No 1803.
2. Margaret (nothing noted but died young.)
3. William Gilpin (Rev.) b. 8 April 1757, d. 29 Feb 1848 M.I.P.Inst. Rect. of Pulerbach - 20 December, 1806 married Elizabeth Farrish, she was born 1 November, 1760, d. 14 April, 1831.
4. Margaret (again only noted that she died young)
None are listed as to where they were born so going by his writting in the book,William Gilpin vicar of Bolder indicated he married before the Cheam school. Also in the notes on page 119 it states that they had been togetherabout 30 years now and gives the date as 1791 equaling 1761 at near time of marriage.But, The oldest son is indicated as being born 1754... so?? William (father) probably had is children at the Cheam school he ran, he then moved to Boldre after 30 yrs at the school, date?
