My GGG/F Leonard (Leonord) Kennedy (Kenedy) b. 1796 died on or about 8th May 1841 in Walton - but he might appear (with any luck) on the 1841 Census with wife Jane and some of the children. I only know of 3 - one of whom died before the Census so that should leave John b 1822 & Thomas b 1839 - but there may be others I know nothing about (as yet). :confused: [Just seems a long time between the birth of the brothers, when you consider the size of the families then.]

His father, also a Leonard Kennedy bapt 4-Mar-1759 in Bewcastle may still be about?|help|

Any clues appreciated...thanks

The 1841 census was taken in early June.

Hi it's Judith again
1841 Census for Walton;
HO107/170/13. Township of Walton High
Address: Barns
Leonard Kennedy age 75 Joiner born in County
Jane Kennedy age 35 born in County
John age 15 born in County
John age 15 born in County (yes, it is shown twice!!)
Thomas age 2 born in County.
On the same Census but shown as 'The Village of Walton';
Thomas Kennedy age 15 Joiners Apprentice born in County. (Could be a relative!)
I also looked up the 1841 Census for Bewcastle but no Kennedy's were shown.
Hope this is of help.

Thanks Judith...definitely the right ones. :D

Re your latter comment re Bewcastle - you mean NO Kennedy's or NO Kennedy's matching the lookup request?:confused:

Hi again
Bewcastle is a very small place with only a few pages on the census but sorry to say no sign of any Kennedy's on any of them. However if I get the chance to look at it again I will try the surrounding villages ie Newcastleton, Irthington, Newtown etc. Would it be worth trying the 1851 census?
p.s. there is a smashin' pub/restaurant at Walton!!

Thanks Topo

Hmmm I have a source reference I've been given for the 1841 Census to look up the Kennedy's which should have the Leonard bapt in Bewcastle in 1759 @ Barns, Walton High - HO107/170/13 - That help at all?

Hi again
The reference for the 1841 census at Walton is HO 107/170/13 but it doesn't say where Leonard or any other members of the clan were born/baptised only that they were born 'IN COUNTY'. If I get the chance to go to the County archives I'll look up the Parish Records. I know there is a very old church in the village of Walton.
Sorry can't be of much more help...! (but I'll keep trying)
