We have been told that our Munro family originated in Scotland, but have yet to prove this.
At the head of our Munro family is Daniel Munro, who married Elizabeth Jenkinson at Distington, Cumberland in 1789.
Daniel and Elizabeth had eight children, only three of these were named in Daniel’s will when he died in 1833.
John Munro born in 1795, Daniel and Elizabeth’s second son, married Sarah Quinn at St Bees in 1822.
John and Sarah had a family of ten children in Whitehaven, where John was a ships carpenter, as were his sons Daniel, James, John and George.
Of these sons, James Munro born 1827 married Jane Beck at Workington in 1854. James and Jane Munro had six children in Workington, their daughter Sarah married Benjamin Armstrong at Workington in 1887.
A story passed down through the family is that James Munro was shipwrecked in the course of his work as a ships carpenter, and turned up years later, having been believed dead. Hopefully we may be able to verify this, but to date have not found any mention in local newspapers of that time.
