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.

Ewart/Armstrong document

I received this email in January with attached photo. If you want to share info with Drew, go ahead and write a comment. I will alert him to keep an eye out. Thanks, Drew. - Rosemary
 
Greetings Rosemary,
 
As you must be aware, when researching ones ancestry, there are often seeming dead-ends. Occasionally, I go to those dead-ends in hopes that there may be something new on various sites or do Google searches with different key words. Searching Jenny Bell Nicholforest got me to your blog.
 
The name John Ewart from your blog stood out as that name is listed on a Bastardy Recognizances which I believe pertains to my 3-g grandfather Andrew Armstrong. Although not from Bewcastle, they were not far away in Stonegarthside and Whiteknowe and I wonder if they connect with your Ewarts.
 
I have attached a copy of that order for your consideration.
 
I enjoyed reading your blog. Well done!
