Research Notes

John Todd married to Eleanor is definitely the parents of John Todd married to Betty Lowry, as 8 of the children to both of the couples are name matches. So John Todd married to Betty christening date is 3/11/1778. Lancashire on Line Parish Project. John son of John and Eleanor St Marys Dalton in Furness. Which means that his father John Todd was born before 1751, as his marriage date to Eleanor is 1772. Common children names for both couples John, Edward, Eleanor, Betty, Jane, James, Matthew, and Samuel. The spin on this is in the Lancashire On Line Parish project has John Todd married to Betty Lowry lists his parish as Heaversham Westmorland, occupation Blacksmith. Could it be that he moved there to learn his trade? To eliminate other possibilities I entered John Todd date range 1770 to 1780, there was one John Todd, son of John Todd, but he was married to an Ann, and had children the same time in Heaversham Westmorland, the others I could eliminate through family names, spouses and locations. Then I entered date range for John Todd married to Eleanor for 1740 to 1751, of the possibilities there is one that matches, but a new problem arises. John Tod alias Hunter son of John Tod alias Hunter 5/11/1751 St Mary Dalton in Furness. Others eliminated through location, names, and spouses. So then entered info for John Hunter in Lancashire and Westmorland with no good results. I find no Matthew or Samuel Todds in Lancashire until late 1700s. James Todd is a name to Lancashire in the 1600s. However there are numerous Matthew, Samuels in Westmorland. So these families are definitely connected. More research needed. There is a tree on my heritage that has JohnTodd married to Eleanor and lists his parents as Richard and Beatrice, saying that Richard and John is on marriage papers. The John born to Richard and Beatrice was christened in 1754 in Liverpool. I think the age may be off as John married to Eleanor in 1772 would make John 18, Although possible there are no children named Richard.
