Westgarth as a first name- a puzzle !
comments powered by
in our tree we have a Westgarth Thompson born in Barrow in Furness in about 1893( source 1901 census ).
That is all we know, we do not know what became of him.
What intrigues us is the choice of first name !
I have now seen a possible link,
Mary Ann Westgarth, born 1805 in Stanhope, DUR; married George Thompson 14 Oct 1828 in Stanhope, DUR.
Does anyone recognise this marriage ? Did they have any children ? in particular a Samuel Thompson who would probably have been Westgarth Thompsons Grandfather.
Hope someone can help.
