I originally created this blog to document my work on the family history of my grandmother, Maggie Goodfellow Story, later known as Madge Rogers. She was from Bewcastle. After it became evident that other family historians were attracted to the site, I invited them to share their memories and family histories from Bewcastle and the surrounding parishes. And so, it is evolving into a useful research tool for genealogists. Please note, if you want to read my original work, you will need to scroll down to the beginning of the blog and continue reading up.

If you have information that you would like to share here, or a question, you need to become a blog author and make a posting. To do this, contact me at rosemarydale3@yahoo.co.uk, and I will send you a permission. However, I can not respond to requests for further information or assistance.

Cumbrian Recipes

Some more recipes from my mother's book, in her handwriting. When I was a child, our grandmother made a loaf of brown bread and a loaf of white bread each week. The white bread recipe was the same as the Bread Buns. The bread was actually for Grandad, as Grandma ate Energen Rolls. The recipe for the Toddies was "Mam's" and also from Betty Kyle, of Harper Hill. I wonder if they both learned the recipe from their mothers, who surely would have learned it from their mother, Elizabeth Forster Goodfellow. I wonder how far back this recipe goes? Toddies are like scones. (Click to enlarge.)
