Hi David
Thanks for the reply. I have found that Thomas and Lydia (Huggonson) Fishwick had several children at Sedbergh.
1. Rowland
2. Seth
3. Thomas
4. Richard my 4x grt grandfather
5. Isobel
6. Elizabeth
7. Ann

From the parish register records of births it gives Seth, Thomas, and Richard's occupations as Colliers. Do you think they worked the same 'patch' around Frostrow?
Also, the Richard above had a son Thomas b 1808 who married Mary Atkinson on the 23-3-1829 at Long Sleddale. I believe their children were.
1. Thomas my 3xgrt grandfather born 30-6-1827, bapt 31-8-1834
2. John born 1830?
3. Mary bapt 1-4-1832
4. Agnes 1834
5 Nancy bapt 10-10-1836
6 Betty 1838
7. Bridget 1840
8. James 1842
Do you know of any others and are the dates correct. I know that Thomas's date of birth is correct because according to his obitary he was buried with this date on his coffin. So he was born 2 years before his parents married and was baptized several years after his younger sisters. Its definitley the correct Thomas though because the information ties in correctly with age at death and census return records etc.
best wishes
