In this post I will discuss William Routledge Goodfellow, and introduce his parents. My goal over the last ten days has been to get to this point before I arrive in the UK next week. I very much hope to spend an afternoon in Bewcastle, this time, armed with a camera.
William Routledge Goodfellow was christened at the Bewcastle Church on May 21, 1826. Here are the baptismal records for him and his siblings that I have found to date:
January 18, 1824 Mary, daughter of Robert and Jane Goodfellow, Bellbank, Stapleton, farmer.
May 21, 1826 William Routledge, son of Robert and Jane Goodfellow, Hill End, hired.
August 19, 1827 Elizabeth, daughter of Robert and Jane Goodfellow, Hill End, labourer.
November 17, 1829 Jane, daughter of Robert and Jane Goodfellow, Hill End, labourer.
January 27, 1832 Hector, son of Robert and Jane Goodfellow, Underwood, farmer.
