Our Pearts came from the upper Weardale Valley southwest of Durham. The names you mention (Joseph Peart) and Elizabeth Magby do NOT ring a bell. However, there were many Peart in the Durham area and I think some toward Northcumberland areas as it is my intuition that the Peart name came from the north, perhaps from Scotland. If you run across family closer toward Durham, let us know. Our records go back to about mid 1700's for the Weardale Valley.
