Hello Darren, welcome to the boards.

It's many years since SD5 posted and they've never returned to the boards (only the 1 post made). Unlikely they'll see your reply.

You could try clicking on their name to attempt a direct message.

I am looking for relatives of Jane Cowperthwaite of Grisedale, second wife of James Lund, daughter of Elizabeth BROWN of Newbiggin and John Cowperthwaite. I think Jane was born about 1860 and had a daughter Sarah Jane (my grandmother) in 1881. Does anyone have a tree I could look at please? Thank you Sue
