Re: Jenkinson, Westmorland, 17th century

In Reply to: Re: Jenkinson, Westmorland, 17th century by Ned Good of 413

Good morning Ned. 'High House, Hugill: A Short History' is a short book with a section entitled 'The Jenkinson's'. The house was bought by William Jenkinson in 1698. It states that 'the overwhelming legacy of the Jenkinson clan appears to have been a high propoensity for procreation outside of wedlock and a tendency to beget twins' - it then goes on to provide some detail, centred on the mid-eighteenth century, to support this claim.

The Jenkinsons sold High House around about 1849. Thomas Jenkinson, the final Jenkinson owner, lived to the age of 91, and his son, was probably too old to take over.

The ISBN number 0-955-1174-0-2 is unique to the little book and so should enable you to source it from where ever you are.

If you are living in Cumbria, England then it is available in your local library - either for loan or in the reference section.

Similarly, if you live in England your local library should be able to get it for you.

If you live in America then you would probably have to purchase it. You might try Amazon Books on the web - it's certainly available on the UK site.
