Thomas Routledge and Elizabeth Storye

So I am back to Thomas Routledge and Elizabeth Storye as the parents of Grace Routledge. The will abstract turned out to be too good to be true! I should have clued in when I saw George of Oakshaw and two children listed without his wife Grace. She had been buried in March 1767 although having two burials for Archibald Forrester at Stapleton did not help either as one was in 1766 when Grace was still alive. However, the correct one according to the correspondent was in May 1767. There was also the problem of Kirkbeckstown where Mary Routledge married to Thomas Routledge had been baptized and this family appeared to live there.

Thomas and Elizabeth baptized four children at Bewcastle whilst living at Oakshaw, William, Jane, Grace and Leonard. This fits the will abstract as there is a Leonard Routledge of Oakshaw mentioned along with George and the two children (my ancestor Elizabeth and her younger sister Peggy (Margaret)).

Once again this blog has more than proved its worth to me in acquiring new information from other researchers around the world.

This also fits in better with my mother's memory of her Routledge family. Three first cousin marriages although in reality it is more of a first cousin marriage and then a second cousin marriage thus far. Thomas Routledge married to Elizabeth Storye is a brother to Henry Routledge married to Margaret Tweddle. Now to fit George Routledge who married Grace Routledge into the Oakshaw picture!
