Ravenstonedale Kirkby Stephen Cumbria

From Fred Knewstubb - New Zealand - 2001, 2006


Hello from New Zealand. I visited your lovely town in June 1995. My time was very limited but I will be back. The reason being my family history. My wife and I looked around St Oswalds church and found a headstone for one James Knewstubb. He appears to have lived at Stouphillgate. My query is, is this a house, farm or district? If you can help I would be grateful. In fact any information on the family name Knewstub(b) will be appreciated.

I have several photos of your town but would like permission to use yours from this site. My home page showing all my pictures is at http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/k/n/e/Frederick-R-Knewstubb/index.html

Thanks for a wonderful site.

Hi Again. When I visited this site in 2001 I left a message for people to contact me if anyone had any info on my family name. I have appreciated several contacts. Thanks for a wonderful insite to my heritage in your wonderful town.
