Last update July 2013.

\nLetter from Pam Rogers. July 2013.
\nThank you for your very interesting site. I am particularly interested in the Grange family as Esther Grange was my maternal g.g. grandmother and I would like to make a correction to your info.
\nEsther Grange was born on January 31 1839at Coldstonesfold, father George Grange, mother Mary MacKrill.
\nShe is listed correctly in the 1841 census and in the 1851 census her age should be 12 but the ‘1’ has been crossed through.
\nEsther was living at Glasshouses Hippings when she married John Dawson on February 20 1860 at Pateley Bridge. John Dawson was born in Millom Cumberland and at the time of the marriage was a miner living in Greenhow.
\nBest regards
\nPam Rogers in Oz.
\nThanks Pam I have amended the site. Barbara.
