William Wordsworth was born at Cockermouth in Cumberland on the 7th of April, 1770, the second of five children.
His father was John Wordsworth, an attorney-at-law, and agent of Sir James Lowther, afterwards first Earl of Lonsdale.

The most persistent Brigham line occurs in connection with the annals of Yorkshire; but late researches incline to the belief that there were no less than four distinct Brigham lines, from one of wYorkshire; but late researches incline to the belief that there were no less than four distinct Brigham lines, from one of which sprang Thomas.
