Francis POSTGATE , Bishop Middleham, Durham, England
I am also interested in Francis Postgate. I wondered if he might be the father or uncle of Francis Postgate b 1792/3 in Bishop Middleham [1851 census]. My Francis may have married Elizabeth Dickinson 1815 in BM, but some time between 1823-1841 married my gt gt gt grandmother Elizabeth Cummins/Cummings and was living with her and her son in Hutton Henry, County Durham during the 1841 and 1851 censuses. He was a master mason.
I noticed that there is William Postgate, another mason, b. 1806 and living in Hart, County Durham in the 1841 census. He has named 2 of his sons Robert and Francis, so there may be another connection.
Do you recognise this family group?
Do you know of any connection with Nicholas Postgate, the Roman Catholic martyr?
