Hi whilst reseaching my gt gnd mthr RACHEL PRISK nee BARTLE using a bible handed down to me I have dicovered an error in the LDS enty for the 1881 census for MILLOM Cumbria UK. Apart for RACHEL BARTLE who was in servce and recorded in BARROW IN FURNESS, the rest of her family were recorded as BARTTE @ No 36 Concrete square MILLOM-:
HENRY BARTLE head 33 brn MARY TAVY DEVON Iron miner/local M Preacher MARYwife 28St Austell Cornwall HENRYson9MILLOM ALBERT JAS"2"
At No 35 lived JOSEPHA/JOSEPHINE PHILLIPS nee BARTLE and her mother SUSANNAH BARTLE nee JACKMAN?
At No 28 lived RICHARD JAMES PRISK who married RACHEL BARTLE 1885.
At No 23 lived THOMAS TRESIDDER who married RICHARD PRISK's sister BESSIE TRESIDDER nee PRISK Dec 1885.
At No 7lived WALTER WARREN who married BESSIE's sister 1882.
JOSEPHA PHILLIPS nee BARTLE was in AUSTRALIA in1868 where she had son JOHN but was back in DEVON 1870 and in MILLOM by 1872.
This whole extended family, most had moved on mass from WENDRON CORNWALL in the last 1/4 of the 19th century all mining people to work the newly discovered Haematite (iron ore deposites close to MILLOM.
My father told me that the whole lot moved to the USA at the turn of the century leaving one grandfarther behind to wind everything up but got a piece of metal in his eye and was turned away by imigration, so the whole lot came back, or did they? my uncle JAMES WEDDLE was born there 1905.
To cut a long story short this is what is writen in the BIBLE I have-:
JASEPHINE (altered to) JOSEPHA PHILLIPS 19 Katherine street MILLOM. THIS BIBLE WAS HENRY BARTLES HE GAVE IT TO HIS MOTHER SUSANNAH BARTLE THEN IT PASSED TO HIS SISTER JOSEPHA PILLIPS, THEN IT HAS PASSED ON TO HIS SISTER RACHEL PRISK THEN PASSED ON TO HER DAUGHTER JESSIE (my grand mother) AND THEN TO BE PASSED ON TO JAMES (weddle) HER SON.
I would like to hear from anyone, I have lost track of them at the turn of the century as none apear in the1901 census, hope I have not gone on too much.
