Cuthbert Pallister was the second child of Cuthbert Pallister & Margaret Oxley born at Stand-against-all, Lanchester & christened January 6th, 1709 at Stand-against-all, Lanchester, Co. Durham.
Cuthbert married Hannah Blenkinsop on May 25th, 1732 at All Saints Lanchester.
The 5 children of Cuthbert & Hannah were all born at Langley Lane. Son Thomas sadly died in infancy. Thomas was christened at Ryton Woodside Presbyterian Chapel, suggesting that Cuthbert & Hannah were Presbyterians. Interestingly the other 4 children were all entered into the church register at All Saints Lanchester at the same time in 1748 under a list headed ‘births/baptisms of papists & dissenters’.
It appears that the family relocated to the West Auckland area of Co Durham, south of Lanchester.
Hannah died at Evenwood, & was buried on May 10th, 1768 at St Helen’s, Auckland, Co Durham. She was noted as the wife of Cuthbert Pallister of Evenwood.
Daughter Jane married John Garr c1763 at St Helen’s Auckland, Co Durham. Sons John & Cuthbert also married at St Helen's Auckland.

Widowed Cuthbert married again on October 9th, 1775 at Auckland St Andrew, his second wife being Mary (Ann) Fletcher. The Durham marriage bonds & allegations of October 6th/7th 1775 state Cuthbert to be a widower of Windlestone & Mary was a spinster of Auckland St Andrew.
Cuthbert of Windlestone was buried on April 19th, 1780 at Auckland St Andrew.
Cuthbert & Mary had 2 daughters, Hannah & Mary. On Hannah’s marriage to John Tunks on March 15th, 1796 the Durham marriage bonds & allegations show that she was under the age of 21. Her mother, now Mary Atkinson, consented to the marriage, her father being deceased. It is thought that Mary married Henry Atkinson in 1781 at Auckland St Andrews.
