The Kennedy family in our tree lived in the Whitehaven area of Cumberland and were shipbuilders and mariners. At the head of our tree is Lumley Kennedy, who was born in 1754, the son of Andrew Kennedy and Barbara Lumley, who married in 1754 at St Bees. Lumley married Elizabeth Morrison at Whitehaven in 1783 and had nine children; only two of these, Lumley and Richard survived to have families of their own.
Lumley Kennedy jnr married Mary Ryley at Whitehaven in 1815. He was a foreman at Brocklebank’s shipyard in Whitehaven before starting his own shipyard, where 66 ships were built in Whitehaven between 1835 and 1864.
Lumley and Mary had eleven children, most of whom lived to old age. Lumley died in 1882, and Mary died in 1875, they were both buried at St Bridgets, Beckermet.
Their eldest son, Thomas married Sarah Holliday at Whitehaven in 1840. Thomas was a mariner, he was a captain when he died of yellow fever in 1852 at St Thomas, West Indies.
