Robert Turnbull

Baptized 30 JAN 1774 Nichol Forest, Cumberland, England

the date was destroyed in the Par. records, but it was the first baptism for the year. The Nichol Forest Bishop's Transcript shows the full date and reads: "1774 Jan 30th Robert, son of Walter Turnbul of Dikehead, carpenter and Elizabeth his wife" which must be where the IGI extracted its information from, as the surname was spelt the same way there. The year agrees with Robert's age given in both the 1841 and 1851 census records

Married Stapleton, Cumberland, England

the entry in the Bishop's Transcripts reading: Robert Turnbull of Dikehead in the Parish of Kirkandrews and Elenor Scott of this Parish, (Stapleton) were married in this church by licence this twenty eigth day of March 1811 By me John Topping Curate.
