The Roberts family in our tree were from Egremont, Cumberland.
Stephen Roberts, who died in 1723, had a son Michael, who married Abigail Hutchinson at Egremont in 1702. Michael died suddenly in 1724, leaving his widow Abigail and children Joseph, Mary, Hannah and Frances.
Joseph Roberts, Michael and Abigail’s son, born in 1703, married Agnes Jackson at St Bees in 1733.
Joseph was described as a yeoman when he died in 1763.
Joseph and Agnes had five children,
Joseph and Agnes’ son John, born in 1739, married Jane Smith at Egremont in 1765. John and Jane Roberts had nine children in Egremont, where John was a papermaker.
Joseph and Agnes’ youngest son Stephen, born in 1748, married Mary Blake at Egremont in 1773. Stephen was a papermaker when their three children Joseph, Peter and Betty were baptised.
Peter, Stephen and Mary’s second son, married Hannah Mawson at Egremont in 1806. Peter and Hannah had eight children in Egremont, where Peter was a carrier.
Joseph, Stephen and Mary’s eldest son, married an Elizabeth, we have yet to find this marriage, and still hope to do so. Joseph and Elizabeth Roberts also had eight children in Egremont, where Joseph was a carrier. Of these eight children, sons Stephen, John and Joseph married and had families in Egremont. Joseph and Elizabeth’s fifth son James, born in 1818, married Ann Birkett at Irton in 1842. James and Ann Roberts had a large family at the Bridge Inn, Santon Bridge, where they were publicans and farmers. James and Ann’s daughter Elizabeth married Robert Wilson at Irton in 1866.
We have been able to trace many members of the Egremont Roberts family through census records.
