The name Tyson is very common in Cumberland. We have four different Tyson families in our tree.
William Tyson, who died at Strands in 1801, was born about 1720. We have not found a baptism for him, but believe that he was the son of Thomas Tyson and Elizabeth Hodgson, who married at Gosforth in 1716. From manorial records for Netherwasdale, we found that Thomas Tyson was admitted to the tenancy of Strands in 1726, at which time he was referred to as “Thomas Tyson of Ousthwaite, yeoman”
When Thomas Tyson died at Strands in 1755, the admin. bond for his will named his widow Elizabeth and William Tyson, yeoman of Netherwasdale. Manorial records for Netherwasdale show that John Tyson was admitted to the tenement of Strands after his father’s death in 1755, then in 1759 William Tyson was admitted after the death of his brother John.
William married twice, first to Mary Sherwen at Irton in 1756. William and Mary had a daughter Elizabeth. Mary died in 1759.
William’s second wife was Ann Stephenson, they married at St Bees in 1760.
William and Ann had six children. Of these children, sons John and William, and daughter Ann did not marry.
Their daughter Margaret married into the Moor family.
James Tyson, William and Ann’s eldest son, born in 1761, married Frances Boadle at Whitehaven in 1780. James was a farmer, he and Fanny had eight children, born at Bengarth.
Ann, daughter of James and Fanny, married Michael Tyson of Gosforth in 1803.
William, their son, drowned in the harbour at Whitehaven in 1851, leaving a widow and children.
John, their son, born in 1785, married and built the New Strands Hotel (now known as the Screes).
Betty, their daughter, born in 1793, married William Nicholson at Gosforth in 1815.
Thomas, James and Fanny’s son, born in 1795, died in the snow on Hollow Moor in 1841.
Hannah Tyson, James and Fanny’s daughter, born in 1788, had a son John Tyson in 1811. Hannah married Crispin Pharaoh at Whitehaven in 1815, they had a family, all sons.
John Tyson born in 1811, married Dinah Miller at Netherwasdale in 1832. John and Dinah farmed in Netherwasdale and had six children, William, James, Hannah, John, Dinah and Isaac. Their son William, born in 1832, married Hannah Stephenson at Netherwasdale in 1863. William and Hannah Tyson farmed at Rainors, Gosforth, where their daughters Margaret and Hannah were born, later they moved to Stang Ends, where Hannah died in 1899. William died in 1912 at Palace How, near Deanscales, where his daughter and son in law were farming.
Hannah, William and Hannah Tyson’s daughter, born in 1876, married William Leece at Bootle in 1902. Hannah was my great grandmother and I can remember her very well.
