Faulders mentioned in BBC Who Do You Think You Are

The 5 September 2012 Edition of (the BBC Series of) Who Do You Think You Are? featured the singer Annie Lennox.  Her Great Great Great Grandmother, Mary Rose, was the “Natural Daughter” of a James Rose (Church terminology for illegitimate).  It seems that a few months after the birth of Mary, James Rose married an Isabella Faulder.  That caught my attention!

Faulder Cumberland Antecedents

Other posts have made reference to the half-family arising from Catherine Blaylock marrying two Robert Faulders and to the intertwining of various families mainly in North Cumberland in the 18th and 19th Centuries.

This diagram (click on it to see it full size) shows some of the links that have been established.

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 The 1835 Deceased Wife’s Sister Act (Lord Lyndhurst’s Act) made such unions illegal until it was repealed by the 1907 Deceased Wife’s Sister’s Marriage Act.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).

Descendants of William Faulder

Not all of William’s children have been traced through marriage and death.

  • the family of his daughter Isabella who married Thomas Clark (and had two children and at least four grandchildren – known family treeopen pdf window). I am now in contact with the daughter of one of those grandchildren.
  • whether his son Thomas married (shown as ‘single’ in 1891 census, as ‘wid’ in 1901 census), but no record found for either his marriage or the death of his wife.
  • whether his daughter Sarah who married Robert Telford in 1868 but who died in 1870 – to investigate further for any 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.

Other Families which are interweaved into Faulder descendants

Where surnames crop up a number of times, I want to know if they are related to each other (for instance have two brothers married two sisters). This Chart of Surnamesopen pdf window shows how some of the families are interweaved. (more…)

Ancestors outside the main paternal line.
