Since the last blog on 2nd December 2001 "The Descendants of Angus HALSTEAD (1860-1949) and Elizabeth Mary ENGLISH (1862-1929)" I have been looking more closely at the Holstead/Halstead links in Cumberland and tidying them up. This has enabled a number of trees to be linked and has also resulted in two more charts being added to the Cumberland Charts.
Chart 17 covers the descendants of Thomas HALSTEAD (1769-1842) and his wife Ann THIRWELL (1795-1854). Thomas is new to the database.
Chart 18 covers the descendants of Henry HOLSTEAD (c1780-) and his wife Sarah BROWN (c1780-) both Henry and Sarah are new to the dabatase but were married at St Mary, Carlisle on 4 August 1805
Both charts and the detials of these people and their descendants will be included in the next website update at Christmas.
