Hello Annetta, Thanks for the reply. Glad to be of help; I decided to give you the children of Fisher and Elizabeth, don't know how much detail you have of the two names you gave in your reply but here goes.....
1...William Fisher Mounsey
B..23 October 1864, Browedge, Lancashire.
B..10 September 1866, Haverthwaite/Cartmel parish
Ch..7 October 1866, St. Anne, Haverthwaite, Lancashire
Married...18 April, 1900...St. Anne, Haverthwaite
Spouse...John Henry Robertson
B...1870, Kirkby Ireleth, Lancashire
D...1903, South Africa
Occup...Gunfitter[engineer] on ships at Barrow in Furness Shipyards.
Census..1901, Barrow in Furness, shows John, Mary, William,[John's young brother] Olga[daughter aged 1 month] and Harriet Dixon. Harriet was the youngest sister to my grandmother Mary Jane, and was aged 16 at that time, and Mary's cousin.
John and Mary had a second daughter, Annie, born 1904 in Lowdham, Nottinghamshire. Mary was obviously pregnant when John died but why was Annie born in Nottinghamshire? Detective alert???!!!
3...Sarah Jane Mounsey
Spouse...Frederick William Vickers
B..1863, Llandudno, Wales [Reg. December quarter]
Married..27 September 1897, St. Anne, Haverthwaite
Occup..Copper/cooper house keeper/restaurant keeper[terible census deciphering]
They had two children both born in Cheshire.
4...Elizabeth Ann Mounsey
B...18 May, 1873, Cartmel parish
This might be her christening date.
5...Margaret Cowherd Mounsey
B...27 July 1876, Browedge/Cartmel parish
Ch...3 September 1876, St. Anne, Haverthwaite.
Census...1901..PO at Ambleside, post office clerk
Spouse...William Smallwood Garside
Married...13 September 1905, St. Anne, Haverthwaite
B...1878, Ambleside.[birth registered September quarter]
Occup...Painter and decorator
D...17 June 1927, "Monteith", Compston Road, Ambleside
I assume he is buried at Ambleside.
William Smallwood Garside, of "Monteith", Compston Road, Ambleside, Westmorland died 17 June 1927. Administration Carlisle 25 July 1927 to Margaret Cowherd Garside, widow. Effects £386-13s-6d.
I think Margaret had the Cowherd name because her father's sister Jane Mounsey married George Cowherd. Could George and/or Jane be godparents to Margaret?
George and Jane had a son named Thomas Hayton Cowherd, who was obviously named after his grandfather, Hayton Mounsey.
Hope you are still with me. Let me know what you have so far.
Details of marriage of Fisher and Elizabeth...
Fisher Hayton Mounsey
Bachelor of Browedge
Spinster of Browedge
Hayton Mounsey, Deceased
Thomas Dixon, Deceased
Wits...Thomas Dixon, Ann Wilkinson[my great grandparents]
Married by Superintendent Registrar's Certificate by R.C. Hubbersty
4 April 1863, Cartmel Priory
When Thomas and Nanny[her correct name] married, Fisher and Elizabeth were witnesses for them.
I didn't intend to ramble on when I started this but I will finish for now. !Phew!
