The Russell family in our tree lived at Braystones, near St Bees, Cumberland.
Giles Russell, who died in 1728 is at the top of this tree. He left a will naming his wife Mary and eight children, one of whom was his son Jonathan. Jonathan Russell’s wife was Rachel Birkett, daughter of Allen Birkett of Hewrigg, Irton. Jonathan and Rachel had four children that we know of, Isaac, Sarah, John and Ann.
Isaac Russell married Elizabeth Singleton at St Bees in 1775. The marriage record describes him as a yeoman, Isaac and Elizabeth were both of the parish of St Bees.
Isaac and Elizabeth had seven children, and farmed at Harrithwaite. Their daughter Sarah, born in 1785, married William Holliday at Whitehaven in 1811.
