Joseph Fawkes 19c Cumberland


Hi I'm looking for any info on my 4x great grandfather Joseph Fawkes.

I know he was born in Walton,Cumberland about 1803.
He married Catherine SHORTRIDGE or SHORTRIGGS in Walton about 1833.
He died on 13 Jan 1879 in Bush Crossing,Longtown,Cumberland aged 76 years.
I would particulary like to know who is parents were, I believe his father may have been William FAWKES.

Thanks in advance
Hi Bryan,
We are researching this family, as my wife is descended from one of Joseph's older brothers, William.
We can let you have quite a bit of stuff about them, if you are interested - perhaps off-forum would be best. You can email me at rickrick49@gmail.com
Good Luck,
Hello Bryan,

Joseph's father was William Fawkes (born about 1760, Nether Brackenhill) and his mother was Hannah Irwin (born about 1766, Walton). William Fawkes was the brother of my G3 grandfather George Fawkes (1773). Please contact me at horseflymike@telus.net if you would like further information on Joseph Fawkes and his wife Catherine Routledge (born about 1813, Shortrigg).

Best regards,

Mike Lloyd
