It's been awhile, but here is an update on our Phimister line:
1. Thomas Phimister, occupation: Carrier.
His name and occupation is listed in the parish records of Carlisle, Cumberland at the occasion of his son, George's, marriage.I have located a marriage record of a Thomas Phimister and a Margaret Gill in Duffus, Morayshire, Scotland in the year prior to the birth of George.I will know more once I have the GRO marriage certificate of George and Mary Jane Ward.
2. George Phimister, Born about 1845 in Brixton, Surrey (according to the 1891 British census).He was living in Cleator, Cumberland in 1869.If I can check the 1861 or 1871 Census data and find them, I'll have a better idea whether or not the George I found in 1891 is, in fact, our George.
He married Mary Jane Ward of Carlisle, Cumberland in Dec 1869 at St. Mary's Church, Carlisle, Cumberland, England.
3. Walter Ellison Phimister, born in 1877 in Elswick, Northumberland, England
He married Harriett Ann Hodgson between Apr-Jun 1900 in Sunderland, Durham, England.
4. They had Lily Phimister on November 10, 1903 in Sunderland, Durham, England.
