Johnathan Ireland born 1777 and died 1824,he is supposed to have an illegimate son Joseph Ireland to a tamar tarn from a place called kirkwood ? in teesdale area.
the confusion starts after their son Joesph[born 1803-1869] married Elizabeth Cousins.
JONATHAN[s/o Joseph&Elizabeth Ireland had a son named Jonathan but he was baptised a Tarn[dob 1828 death 1866] and his brother Thomas 1833 1914] WAS BAPTISED tARN ALIAS iRELAND ]

look for help with the Ireland family please

i am looking for some information please on the Ireland family from Kirkhouse Fold in Middleton on Teesdale,
What i have managed to find is not much im afraid just these few facts and they are rather confusing maybe someone can shine a bit of light on this.
Jonathan IRELAND [BORN 1828 AND DIED IN 1866] however information given was that Jonathan was baptised in the name of Tarn and so were his siblings ELIZABETH,THOMAS,TAMAR,HANNAH AND JANE.
Not sure how that came about maybe someone does.
Anyway he married a lady by the name of Margaret Watson,she was born in 1831 and died 1857. they had to children
Joseph Ireland and Robert bor in 1855 and is shown in the 1871 census as Ireland not Tarn.
Robert married Ellen HEWARD who was born in 1857 and died in 1945.
It has been mentioned they may have come from fORREST ON FRITH but has not been verified
Hoping someone can help
