Cundall Family Tree

Robert Cundall (1849 - 1891)

No known

Robert Cundall was the son of Thomas Cundall and Frances (Fanny) Bleazard.

Robert was born on Thursday 5 April 1849 in Hareden, Bolton Forest, near Slaidburn, Yorkshire.

He was born at 6 a.m.

Robert married Leah Dewhurst on Thursday 28 May 1885 in St Andrews Church in the Parish of Whalley, in the district of Burnley, Lancashire.
The witnesses at the marriage were Isaac Blezard Cundall, Jeanny Cundall and Mitchell Dewhurst.
Robert was 36 years old and Leah was 36 years old when they married.

I think Jeanny Cundall is Fanny Cundall (Isaac Blezard Cundall's wife) and the person at the Register Office who transcribed the marriage certificate for me has interpreted the handwriting incorrectly and put 'Je' instead of 'F'.

The places where he lived have been identified as:
