JOPSON FAMILY FROM LAKE DISTRICT ENGLAND, FAMILY POSSIBLY ALSO IN CANADA, SPAIN, AUSTRALIA

Surnames: JOPSON MARTIN PEARSON
Hi,
It's been a few years since I've been on this thread and my emails have changed so lets give it another try.
My Grandmother Nora Anges MARTIN nee JOPSON was born in the LAKE DISTRICT in the UK about 1921. I believe her mother was Diana JOPSON nee PEARSON. Nora had 2 brothers one of whom died in World War 2, the second emigrated to Australia in the 1980's. Nora also had another sibling but I am not sure if its a boy/girl, but I do know that that siblings child is living in Spain. All of Nora's siblings and Nora have passed away - so I am trying to get info through any channels that I can.
Nora's father went to Canada in the 1920's to work in the mines in Timmins Ontario. He was killed there and the family stayed in England rather then move to Canada. It is possible that Noras father went to Canada with some of his brothers.
Noras father (My Great grandfather) is supposed to be one of 24 children. I am not sure if all of them survived BUT I do know that they were from the Lake District in England and that they had a farm.

I would like to talk to anyone who has JOPSON family lines and try to combine our knowledge and maybe fill in some of the blanks.

I am sorry that my message is a bit skewiff - all my family history is packed in a box as I am about to move soon. So apologies for not being accurate with dates and details.

I have recently joined Ancestory and have been compiling my family tree.

My Great grandfather Robert H Jopson was born in 1862 in Force Forge Lancashire (now Cumbria) and had 22 children, this is a coincidence being the same family name and so many children!

Hope you are still looking and hopefully we can combine our knowledge as you say.

Dear legdend1

- also for interest of ilaakmosaic -

See below for some census and BMD entries for Robert Henry Jopson (1861-1933) and John James Jopson (1887-), one of his 22 (?) children.
- with apologies if you've already found these.

I see from your family tree here that you've traced Robert H's ancestry back to John Jopson, son of Robert J. and Agnes Backhouse.

Do you have confirmation for the dates you give from here back? I ask because I have them slightly different, as follows:
John Jopson, bapt. 24 Aug 1766, oldest of 7 children of RJ/AB given in the IGI.

Also, my best guess for Robert and his father John, of Borrowdale, is that they're John, poss. b 1687, of Watendlath, who married Agnes Atkinson of Hawkshead in 1715, and had a son Robert bapt. 5 Jul 1720.

Best wishes

Denis

PS Ref the earlier Jopsons ..

From the parish registers online at http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/
it looks as though the Robert Jopson who married Agnes Backhouse in 1765 lived then at Colthouse, but moved between 1775 and 1777 to within Satterthwaite township, and is therefore the Robert Jopson, farmer, Grisdale, who died on 14 Aug 1783, aged 60.

That would fit with my previous suggestion of his being the son of John Jopson of Watendlath and his wife Agnes Atkinson, who married in Hawkshead in 1715, and had a son Robert bapt. 5 Jul 1720.
If that's right I can suggest Jopson ancestors in Borrowdale going back another 3 or 4 generations.

Denis,
I am following this thread as there may be a link to my Jopsons.

to quote, "I see from your family tree here that you've traced Robert H's ancestry back to John Jopson, son of Robert J. and Agnes Backhouse."

Where is the family tree that you refer to? I would like to view it because I believe I also descend from Robert Jopson and Agnes Backhouse,

Dear Maryann

I have now posted my "Jopsons of Borrowdale" tree at

http://www.mollison.org/tree/jopsons_borrowdale.jpg

You'll find the Robert Jopson (1720-83) who I'm fairly confident is the one who married Agnes Backhouse about halfway down and right of centre in the tree.

Taking his line further back was much helped by the wills which his Jopson ancestors for 5 generations back all made (except for his grandfather John, who presumably didn't leave a will because he died before his father). I have copies or notes on these wills - if you want more info just email
(denismollison at gmail.com).

Best wishes

Denis

I've just found out about someone else's version of the Jopson tree, going back possibly one generation further than mine.

I'll post again once I've been able to compare it with mine.

I'm trying to follow my Mother-in-Laws family of Jopson & this is what I have if it helps someone or someone could help me :)

Jonathon Jopson
Birth abt 1816 in Lancashire England

Married Esther Jane Reid/Reed/Read 1848 – 1917
at Blackpool, Lancashire, England in 1878

Death 22 Jan 1896 in Armidale NSW Australia

Esther appears to be 32 years his junior. They had 7 children together. They don't appear to be living together when Jonathon died.

And I haven't been able to find when, where or how they arrived in Australia.
