Anyone know of the Stubbses or Couplands of Ravenstonedale? I have no trace of them before the 1730's. I believe my 4 x gt grandparents were William Stubbs of Lockholm and Margaret Coupland of Town, married at Ravenstonedale 21st August 1756/7, witnesses John Stubbs and William Fawcett. Children Anne 1757, Mary 1759, John 1762 (died?), John 1763, Ruth 1766, Thomas 1769, James 1775 (died), James 1777, William 1780 (died 1781). John Stubbs born 1763, became a schoolmaster in Barnard Castle.
