Maternal Family Trees


The Ellwood, Farrer, and Holme trees in particular show links to many other well-known Westmorland Families. Henry Hoggarth (1806-1875) had the unusual circumstance of having John Ellwood (1796-1880) as his brother-in-law and uncle-in-law! John Ellwood had the misfortune of having two children named after him die in childhood - John Ellwood Hoggarth (1841-1845) and John Ellwood Barnes (1849-1856).

As reported in the Westmorland Gazette 26th April 1856

On Friday he was at Miss Smallwood’s school, and in good health, he went with his little sister home to Garnett House, and then returned to stay with his grandfather, Mr John Ellwood, Hollin Hall. His grandmother [Agnes Ellwood nee Hoggarth] having made supper asked him to take his but the child said he did not want any, and laid himself down on the hearth.
