Misc. Notes
The marriage cert. of Thomas Laidman/Rachel Agnes Jackson shows that his father was Thomas Laidman, a labourer and one of the witnesses was John Laidman, most probably his brother. There is a GRO birth for a Thomas Laidman in Kendal R.D. in Sep Q 1855 and a John Laidman in Kendal R.D. in Jun Q 1860 so this may be the family. [September 2000]
