Looking for info on Thomas BOWNESS born 1823, died 1856 Hutton Soil. Married Margaret Robinson born 1820 Greystoke, died 1904 Great Strickland. Married Jan 8 1846, Parish of Crosthwaite. Thomas's father was Thomas but no other information is known. Margaret's parents were Robert Robinson and Ann Bell.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Fiona,

Thanks for the additional info. The 1841 census entry for BOWMAN isn't my ancestor.

It gets rather confusing because my male ancestors were named Thomas and they married women named Margaret. I'm sure of the death dates as I have the registration of death.

I will double check the information you've given me to make sure I have the correct individuals. Thank you.
