About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:
"Charlotte is one of a pair of sister samplers and was stitched in 1860. Her sister Margaret finished her sampler at the age of 10 years in 1854 at Hoghton School. Using the clues that the two sisters recorded in cross stitches, we were able to locate the girls in family history records.
Charlotte was baptised on July 2, 1848. Her parents were Thomas Entwistle, a farmer, and his wife Charlotte (née Whitehead). Charlotte was one of six children born between 1841 and 1848. Her mother certainly had her hands full!
When Thomas and Charlotte (senior) married on December 23, 1839 in St James, Thomas was an agricultural labourer. In the 1851 census return, Thomas farmed 36 acres at Top o’th Lane in Brindle, Lancashire."
