Hi there,
I am trying to find the children of William COOKSON and Dorothy CRACKENTHORPE. (married 1741 in Newbiggin By Appleby, Westmorland)

From what I have been able to ascertain, they had 2 sons and a daughter

Christopher Crackenthorpe Cookson B1745 Penrith (he married Charlotte Cust)
Ann Cookson B1747 Penrith (she married John Wordsworth)
William Cookson B1754 Penrith (he married Dorothy Cowper)

Are there any other children of the above marriage William Cookson and Dorothy Crackenthorpe?
Or does anyone have any information on this family?
