      Comments: Looking for any information on James Culbert born in 1834 who came over from ireland around 1850. He married Mary Ann Cunningham in 1863. He is burried in Newburg, died in 1922. Trying to find out where in ireland he came from.

      A contact for more information on this James Culbert family is: Frank and Florette Culbert, of Lowell, Massachusetts (as of 1992)
    • Re. James CULBERT died on 13/09/1922 in Carleton, aged 88. His Birth Year given as 1834. The death cert for James Culbert - Died -13 Sept 1922 - says born Ireland. Father Patrick.

      I am trying to trace a James CULBERT, possibly born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Northumberland, about the same time, except there is no evidence to support this, nor details of his parents. He was still resident in England in 1856, however, when he was released from prison on the 31st December in that year. There are no further details in England from then onwards. I have searched 19th Century British Library Newspapers and there is the one reference in the Hampshire Telegraph & Sussex Chronicle dated 05/01/1850 describing his escape from Parkhurst Prison and subsequent burglaries. His date of birth I have deduced from his age at his trial and the date of the trial, thus the 1832/1835 profile. And The National Archives confirmed that he had been given a licence to be released early from prison.
