I have hit a wall re Ruth Knipe's husband. Her details are father Jonathan Peat  married Hannah [??]Ruth was born at Abbey Holme Cumberland [1821-1822] .Ruth was widowed by the 1861 census and was back living with her dad in Whitehaven. Her children William Knipe  and Hannah Knipe  were with her Her son William [b 1842] is the beginning of our family line as far as I have have been able to go back.He married Eleanor Cook in Liverpool but I cannot trace his father. Maybe I am looking in the wrong area [Cumbria] and should be looking more in Lancashire! Any ideas?????? Would really appreciate any help.
