      Notes 
      • It appears Thomas Bell has been taken into the care of Edward and Barbara Bell - I am unaware of any relationship.

        Researchers are suggesting he is Thomas Lowther born 1862 Carlisle. ?

        1871 Census it does state Thomas Bell born in Carlisle.
        Marriage cert does state Edward Bell is his father.

        I am yet to see the birth certificate of Thomas Lowther and see if it matches the date of birth given on the 1939 Register [however it is a known fact that a lot of birth dates in the 1939 Register are often in error] ?

        Descendants do have AT DNA Matches with other descendants of Charlotte Lowther via another son.
