Looking for Dalston-Ewbanke of Borrenthwaite & Borren House Stainmore Westmorland England

Query by BJR

I?m trying to find any information which will help me prove whether Constance Annie Dalston-Ewbanke is my paternal grandmother.

She was born in the 4th quarter of 1892 to Dr George William Dalston-Ewbanke (previously Dalston) and Mary Ann Annan Ravensworth Ewbanke in Stainmore Westmorland. The family lived at Borrenthwaite. She married, first John Thompson in the second quarter of 1917, divorced him later and then married William Owen Edward Croxall Evans on November 14 1933 in Lancaster. At that time she was living at Sea View Nether Kellet.

Other than the birth, marriages and two census records I?ve found nothing else about her life.

The records I?ve found sometimes use Dalston-Ewbanke or D Ewbanke, sometimes Ewbanke or Ewbank.

By the way she had a brother George Michael Dalston-Ewbanke, born in 1891, died on 29/7/1963. The only references to him I?ve found are in the London Gazette and a donation given by his estate to Royal College of Surgeons of England in January 1966.

A Barnard Castle solicitor J (John) Ingram Dawson is woven into my family history trail. His autobiography is titled The Reminiscences of a Rascally Lawyer.

Any information about her would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Brian

Found some interesting snippets on the internet re Dalston Ewbanke: -

There are 17th cent-19th cent: deeds and estate papers for the Dalston Ewbank family held at the Cumbria Archive Centre, Kendal.

From the Cumberland & Westmorland Herald


At the Black Bull Hotel, Kirkby Stephen, Mr. N. Bousfield sold the Upmanhow estate, Stainmore, to Mr. M. Clark, Dummah Hill, acting for the trustees of the late Mrs. Dalston-Ewbanke, Borrenthwaite, for ?1,135. The farm consisted of house, buildings and about 57 acres of meadow and pasture land. Competition lay principally between the purchaser and Mr. D. Cleasby, Heggarscale.

Dear Maria,

Thanks for your interest. If I am able to confirm that Constance Annie Dalston-Ewbanke was my paternal grandmother it looks as if I will have a dream run in tracing the family back for many years/centuries!

Those records held in Kendal could well help, but I need to go there to view them and I'm in Australia. I don't have any plans to come to England until late 2013 or mid 2014.

There are several news items relating to Dr George William Dalston-Ewbanke and a couple I've found which mention his wife Mary Ann Annas Ravensworth Ewbanke. The most intriguing one relates to her marriage settlement with five trustees - Philip William Rudd, Ernest Lonesdale (sic) Nanson, John Sewell Rigg, Richard Warton and John Ingram Dawson. I can't find any connections between them or to the Ewbanke's.
I have found the first marriage record but I can't find the husband John Thompson.

Again I appreciate your interest - and any further information you may have/be able to find.
