Thomas Birkett who died in 1665 at Gosforth, Cumberland is our senior Birkett ancestor. He was a farmer, as were many of his family in successive generations, mostly around Gosforth and Irton. We have managed to trace some of the family through five generations, mainly from parish records and wills, and members of this Birkett family appear in quite a few places in our tree.
Finding the marriage of Daniel Birkett to Joyce Tyson at Eskdale in 1749 was one of those unexpected Eureka!! moments – I’d been searching for it for quite a while when it popped up whilst I was looking for something else!
