FAWCETTs of Yorkshire & Cumberland 1700s

Posted: 1234292942000
Classification: Query
Surnames: FAWCETT, FARISH, ROLFE

Hi There,

My 4XGGrandmother was Dorothy FAWCETT (1764 Dent Yorkshire?-1840 Sheffield Yorkshire). Her marriage to James FARISH (MD Cambridge,1756-1834)in 1787 is mentioned on P:181 of the Rolfe Family Records: Volume II. As well as at least 9 of her siblings.

In the snippet view on Google Books it mentions her sister Eleanor FAWCETT (1770- ) m.her cousin Rev John Fawcett, Rowland FAWCETT (of Scaleby Castle, 1768-1831) m.Frances Mercy FARISH (1763-1840) & Edward FAWCETT m.Eliza Grisdale.

I know the FARISHs are the son and daughter of the Rev James Farish (Vic of Stanwix, 1714-1793) & Elizabeth GILPIN (1726-1802). Daughter of Captain John Bernard GILPIN (1701-1776)

Would anybody maybe able to assist me to find out who the FAWCETTs are and what the ROLFE connection is? (Without having to go to London & borrow the book)

Best Regards
Mark
