Note on Husband: Joseph Berkley WILSON

Joseph Berkley Wilson is my Grand Uncle,(we have a weird family generation time!).

 

The details of the wilson family are strong and accurate back to Edward and Mary Allason. It would seem that Joseph's son (Robert) left the small holding in Borrowdale to go to Keswick and become a pencil maker.

 

There were many in Keswick at the time. However as the century proceeded the jobbing pencil makers disappeared except for a number of big ones.

 

Roberts grew and was successful and eventually became the Cumberland pencil company.

 

His son Thomas, my grandfather, took over the family business but both of his brothers, Joseph and Robert, joined the railway which has just established the line from Penrith to Cockermouth going through Keswick. This resulted in both of them leaving,

 

Joseph to Manchester, and your family, and Robert to Rotherham.
