Our tree has only one generation of a Postlethwaite family so far, we will include them as a link with the Hartley family and Peel Place, Gosforth, Cumberland.
Thomas Postlethwaite died in 1763 at Peel Place, Gosforth. He left a will;
To his son Abraham Postlethwaite, £10.
To his daughter Barbara, wife of Jonathan Hartley, £10.
To his grandson Thomas Hartley, £1.
All these legacies were to take place 12 months after his decease.
All the rest of his money, goods and chattels and personal estate to his two sons Thomas and John Postlethwaite and his daughter Hannah Postlethwaite equally amongst them; they to be joint executors.
Dated 1 March 1763, proved 18 April 1763.
Thomas Postlethwaite’s daughter Barbara, born in 1715, married Jonathan Hartley of Birkerthwaite at Eskdale in 1747.
The grandson Thomas Hartley who was referred to in the will was the son of Jonathan and Barbara Hartley, he farmed at Peel Place.
Abraham Postlethwaite, son of Thomas, did not marry. He died at Peel Place in 1773, and left a will naming many family members.
When looking through the Gosfoth parish records, we noticed that several of my relations had died within the first few months of 1763, this may be pure coincidence, there are no notes in the records to say otherwise.
