‡ General
Ω Birth
  • There are several "Vale" locations in Cumbria.
¢ Children
  • The first five children were born in Cumbria, the rest in Nelson.
¶ Death
  • In 1884, "Cambria" probably referred to the farm house or homestead that had been built in 1880 east of the town centre and that has lately been restored (with a Cambria Street address) and used as a guest house under the name "Cambria House". Its owners have been invited to confirm or explain what they know of its early history. Sarah's husband died there in the same year, and at least one of their children died there later.
