About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

"We believe that Eleanor was born in Cumbria, the most north-western county in England, bordering onto Scotland. We have found two possible Eleanors in the family history records. One baptised on August 29, 1824 in Saint Bridget Beckernet and the other baptised on July 26, 1823 at Saint Bees. It is possible that the two Eleanors were cousins, as Beckernet and Saint Bees are situated less than five miles apart."
