The older Ann above was born Ann Horn, an illegitimate daughter of Peggy Horn of Redmire, baptized 26 June 1791, father unknown. On 20 October 1817, Ann married Matthew Lambert, son of John Lambert and Helen, nee Furnish. Matthew was baptized 20 February 1792, and buried in Redmire 29 March 1828 aged 36.

Matthew and Ann had eight children baptized, including the young Ann (Nancy) seen above:

  2. Judith: baptized 30 May 1819

1851 Census

LAMBERT Ann Head, Widow 60 Castle Bolton

LAMBERT Matthew Grandson 5 Scholar Castle Bolton
LAMBERT Mary Granddaughter 2 Castle Bolton
LAMBERT Jeremiah Grandson 1 Castle Bolton

By 1851, young Ann is a dressmaker. This is the last time we see her mother on the census, as she was buried 3 May 1857 aged 66.

A case at the bastardy sessions, October 1855, is presumably Ann's daughter Ellen Lambert of Castle Bolton, who named Edmund Coates of Feetham, innkeeper as father, with no appearance.

John Lambert is still living nearby:

Joseph was the son of Joseph and Sarah. His baptism hasn't been located, but is likely methodist, given that several of his siblings are to be found in the Aysgarth and Coverdale methodist registers.
