Inter-relationships of other surnames marrying into the Family

Investigating other surnames marrying into the Family – particularly where there are two people of a particular surname marrying in – raising the question as to whether they are related.

  • Forster surnames: Annie (m Joseph Faulder 1919), Eliza (m Edward Norman 1856)
  • Graham surnames: Elizabeth (m George Blaylock 1828), Deborah (m William Faulder 1921), Janet (m Thomas James 1706?)
  • Jackson surnames: Ann (m Robert Faulder 1754), William (m Hannah Faulder 1858),
  • James surnames: Edward (m Mary Falder 1738), Elizabeth (m William Blaylock 1765?), Thomas (m Eleanor Faulder 1855)
  • Pattinson surnames: John (m Catherine Faulder 1855, m Elizabeth Faulder 1859), John Lawson (m Mary Faulder 1900).
    • Catherine and Elizabeth Faulder were sisters, and consequently John’s second marriage was, at that time, illegal. The 1835 Deceased Wife’s Sister Act (Lord Lyndhurst’s Act) made such unions illegal until it was repealed by the 1907 Deceased Wife’s Sister’s Marriage Act.
  • Story surnames: Emily (m Joseph Sewell Faulder 1882), Annie (m Tom Clark 1929)

(Comments of the “Are we related” type (much welcomed) are being collated on a collection of “Are we related?” pages.)

Other descendants of William’s paternal Grandparents (Robert Fa(u)lder and Anne Jackson)

Robert’s Will refers to four children (Mary Newby and three minors). (known family treeopen pdf window).

  • Mary Faulder – who married William Newby (1778): four possible daughters – not traced
  • Robert Faulder – who married Catherine Blaylock (1803): Only one known adult son William – well traced
  • Ann Faulder – little known
  • Unnamed minor son – I now believe this to be Thomas, whose daughter Isabella married John Norman (the brother of Thomas Norman who married Mary Faulder, daughter of the first of Catherine Blaylock’s marriages).

Other Descendants of William’s parents (Robert Faulder and Catherine Blaylock)

Only other descendant found to date is a younger brother Thomas who died as an infant.  Documentation relating to the Administration of Catherine Blaylock does not indicate that there are other children.

Ancestors of William Faulder

Further work into the Faulders in Cumberland per 1837. In particular were the two Robert Faulders married to Catherine Blaylock related? (speculative work in progress open pdf window).  At this time life becomes complicated by the variable spelling of the surname.

Ancestors outside the main paternal line.
