Jane Allinson was born on the 30th November 1840 in Flimby, Cumberland. She died on her 90th birthday and is buried in the churchyard of St James, Hayton. Jane lived for many years at East Bank, Prospect.
East Bank in a state of disrepair back in the 1990s.
Jane never knew her Grandfather, Robert Allinson, for he had died in 1827. From the time of his marriage in 1790, Robert lived in Dearham. An estimate for his year of birth is 1761, but so far nothing has been found which gives any clues as to where he was born.
