Anthony Beacock –  I’m trying to trace Beacock’s in Appleby back in the early 1600s. My direct ancestor Michaell Beacock (Beacocke) married Bettris Reder in Appleby 1612. The children that I know they had are Agnes, Anthony (myself and him are the only Anthony Beacock’s I have found up to now!) and Matthew (born 1627). The children were all born in Appleby but cannot find anything else out about Agnes, Anthony, Michaell or Betrris. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Gwen Boycott asks: I am trying to trace my ancestor Mary Ann Hutchinson who was born in Appleby in about 1802. . The only other information I have is that she married John Blackburn at West Halton, Lincs in 1831.

If you can offer any information please get in touch via the email address at the foot of the page and I will pass your comments on to Gwen.
