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.

Request for Noble information

If you are able to help Jo, please leave a comment. Thanks. - Rosemary

Dear Rosemary

Where to begin! I am completely lost at the moment, swamped in a mountain of ancestry information.
I came across your website and it really intrigued me, especially the family name section on the left 
hand side. I have currently came across my ancestors, many may I add came from Bewcastle. 
They are called Noble and I saw it was missing from your list of families from this area. Is there any chance you know any of the history or any Nobles in fact that came from here. I appreciate that it is 
a long shot but I am so lost I don't even know where to start and I have been an avid ancestry
researcher since my early teens. 

Many Thanks 

Jo Usher

Jo. I too am searching for Noble's from Bewcastle. My ggGrandfather was Thomas Noble, b Jan 1, 1806 near Penrith, d. Dec 24, 1848 Massilon, Ohio, Perry Township. My ggGrandmother, Isabella (Cooper) Noble, b Mar 31, 1811 near Penrith, d. Jun 25, 1894 Massilon, Ohio, Perry Township. In teading up on the border reivers, Noble was a 'riding family.' There are a couple of rwfences to them having owned Crew Castle. Will Noble of the Crew and Hobbie Noble of the Crew. Hobbie's real name was Halbert, and one of the prominant Border Ballads is about him. If you have any additional information, I'd love to see it.
