Urgently seeking anyone with information & history of the property titled 'Greenends' located near Alstone, Cumberland, England. My great-great-great-great-grandfather, Thomas BELL, a wood joiner (b.1768 at Alstone) married a Mary (nee CRAIG) there in 1791 and produced several children, among them Peggy, Mary & my great-great-great grandfather Thomas born in 1799. The family lived at 'Greenends' during the 1790s and at least until ~ 1820s. I believe Thomas's wife Mary died ~ 1811 and is buried at Alstone somewhere. I would love to know more about the history of both the 'Greenends' property itself and this BELL family group. For example does the house still stand?? How large was the land & how would it have been utilised? Are there any members of this family still in the area? Do Thomas & Mary's graves have any monuments on them? Can anyone please help me with some details about this property and my BELL family who lived there??? Much appreciated. Cheers, Rob Bell, Essendon, Victoria, Australia.

Hello Rob

I too am tracing the family of Thomas Bell and Mary Craig and would welcome any information you have on their children.

I am tracing a John Bell born 1795 Alston whose parents are either Thomas Bell and Mary Craig or William Bell and Ann Hutchinson.

Hoping to hear from you.

Regards

Irene
