WDX 884/3/3Whitehaven, Cleator and Montreal estatesThese estates came to the Parkin family through the marriage of Hugh Parkin to Sarah Margaret Macdowell, step-daughter of Charles Deane, Commander of the Earl of Sandwich for the East India Company, who died in [1795?].
The acquisition of the Deane's land is represented in the wills and documents of families in this section of the catalogue.
Much of the West Cumbrian land came to the Deane family through Elizabeth Deane (nee Filbeck), through her nephew Timothy Nicholson. Elizabeth was the wife of Joseph Deane, mother of Charles Deane and grandmother to Sarah Margaret Parkin.
Likewise the Keekle properties in Cleator and further properties in Egremont and St Bees parish were bequeathed to Elizabeth Deane by her cousin Margaret Benn. Margaret Benn had in turn received the property through her sister Elizabeth Senhouse (nee Benn) who had married Dr Senhouse of Whitehaven. The will of Elizabeth Senhouse is of particular interest in the number of bequests she bestows on her extended family and servants.
