The Muncaster family in our tree farmed at Gosforth, Cumberland.
At the head of the tree is Thomas Muncaster, who died at Bowbridge, Gosforth in 1712. The admin. bond for his will named his widow Ann as executor. Ann remarried after Thomas’s death, her second husband was John Beeby, of Silver How, Gosforth.
Thomas and Ann Muncaster had a son John, who married Joyce Jackson at Lamplugh in 1729.
John and Joyce Muncaster had three sons, John, William and Daniel, all born at Gosforth. When John died at Bowbridge, Gosforth in 1755, he was described as a yeoman, and left a will which was very informative;
He specified that his wife Joyce should be handsomely maintained out of his estate at Bowbridge by his executor during the lifetime of his mother Ann Beeby and after his mother's death his son John must pay Joyce three pounds yearly. Also Joyce was to have the back kitchen and the room above it for her own use in the new house which they were preparing to build, also one bed and bedding.
The rest of his property went to his son John, who had to maintain his younger brothers William and Daniel during their apprenticeships with clothes and Sunday meat.
John and Joyce’s son John married Elizabeth Walton at Gosforth in 1755.
John and Elizabeth had six children, a daughter Isabella who married William Henry Warre and lived in London, a son Walton who was a pawnbroker in London – in the 1851 census he was commuting from Oxford to London. Three other sons, Richard, James and Thomas remained in the Gosforth area.
James married Rachel Noble at Gosforth in 1787. ( Rachel was possibly the daughter of Charles Noble who married Rachel Skelton at Egremont in 1743, but we have not been able to prove this).
James and Rachel Muncaster had a family of ten, and farmed at Gosforth and Irton. When James died at Boonwood, Gosforth in 1824, Bowbridge was mortgaged for the sum of £400.
Their youngest son William, born in 1811, married Sarah Hartley at Gosforth in 1835. William and Sarah Muncaster farmed at Peel Place, Gosforth, and had four children, James, Rachel, John and Sarah, Rachel married Henry Threlfell at Gosforth in 1875, she was aged 37 and he was 41.
