The Sharp Family of Lowca, Harrington and Ellenburgh
connection with chapels in Lowca and Harrington
I have been doing research into my husband’s family (the Sharp Family of Lowca Cumberland).
We have discovered links with Primitive Methodism, and Trade Unionism. My husband’s grandmother , Mary Jane Sharp (1867-1965) had two cousins.
1) John Sharp (1821-1897)was a minister in Cornwall and Cumberland, and
2) his brother George Sharpe moved to Liverpool and became a timber merchant and a Primitive Methodist local preacher (from Census records).
We would like to know more about their training. What started out as compiling a Family has become a detailed study of two Cumbrian families ( 1750-1950).
I have found John’s photo in the list of ministers
