Faulder Family – England and Wales Distribution

Although I have been concentrating on my own line of Faulders (who I can trace back to North Cumberland in 1754), I am taking an interest in other lines because they may eventually give a clue to my line further back.

I have also been working with GenMap UK an application that will map Genealogical Data. This has helped me get a view of where there are major groups of Faulders. (more…)

The origin of the Faulder family

Widespread belief that the Faulder family is from Southern Scotland

  • Emigrated possibly during time of the Covenantersopen new window (1638 onwards)
  • A number of signet rings in the family have an image of a flaming beacon.
    • Belief that the family may have been involved in maintaining Armada beacons.
    • However, beacons were also used in the north to warn of Scottish invasion.
    • Beacons could also have been those used for navigation assistance.
    • Others have suggested a reference to pillaging by Reiversopen new window.

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 The 1835 Deceased Wife’s Sister Act (Lord Lyndhurst’s Act) made such unions illegal until it was repealed by the 1907 Deceased Wife’s Sister’s Marriage Act.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

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.
