I have made some good progress with the LAMB family of Kirkby Stephen. I ordered in the Will of Joseph Lamb, he died 26 Jan 1892 at Sandwath, Kirkby Stephen. He listed 8 of his 9 children, and divided his estate amongst them after providing for Ann (nee Metcalfe).

I discovered that their first daughter Ann was bapt. 18 Dec 1843 in Ravonstonedale. She married a Christopher Lightburn and moved to Ulverstone. She does not appear to have had any children.

James moved to Ecclesall Bierlow, Sheffield and married a local girl.  Isabella married William Hutchinson and stayed in the local area.  Matthew Mattinson died in 1891 age 34.

Thomas born 1861 was the youngest son and died here in 1934. Joseph born 1859 went on to farm the property at Kirkby Stephen.
