Northumberland / Re: Thomas Landreth & Jane Mole (Moll) marriage

The Bolam Bts can be accessed via the Familysearch catalogue. I wonder if the surname Landreth has been incorrectly recorded.

Image 147 has this baptism Jan1 1826 William son of Thomas and Jane Landers? ( surname difficult to read!). Abode Gallowhill.Occupation labourer.

Image 153 has the baptism of  Elizabeth with the same parents, abode and father's occupation.


Thank you that is excellent. I will look them out tomorrow (Saturday) and copy the appropriate bits.

Yes Mary Ann is one of the children (Jane's mother was a Mary). I had not looked at that particular baptism so interesting that it gives the abode as Gallowhill, Bolam as that is where her brother William gives as his place of birth on the 1851 census.

I had not followed her marriage but it is intersting that it was to a Lewis Broadbent as Thomas and Jane name their last child as Lewis Broadbent Landreth in 1845.

I hope to go to the Library next week and will be will try to look for an irregular marriage there.

Thank you for all those suggestions they are really hopeful

Many apologies. It should definitely be Jane, no idea where Mary came from!

I have altered the original post.

Thank you

Thank you. That fits in very well. (Found it on a modern map with your help).

Northumberland / Where in Berwick? Baldersburry

This extract comes from an 1811 Baptism and refers to a place that looks like Baldersburry in the parish of Berwick. Does anyone know what the name actually is and where it is?

The word is at the end of the second line

Thank you

Northumberland / Thomas Landreth & Jane Mole (Moll) marriage
« on: Friday 19 October 18 17:04 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for a marriage of a Thomas Landreth to a Jane Mole (sometimes transcribed as Moll)   around 1825. I thought I had found it a month or so ago but cannot seem to place it at the moment, so maybe not!

So if anyone fancies having a look the details are

Jane Mole (Moll) 1802-1890 born Norham, Northumberland (a detached parish of Durham)
Thomas Landreth c1803-1864 born Tweedmouth, Northumberland according to censuses but some online trees say Roxburghshire Scotland but without any source.

The coupleís first son is born 1825/6 at Gallowhill Bolam, Northumberland according to the 1851 census (I did not find him in the parish register) so the marriage should be before then. Most of the coupleís children are actually born in the Chester Le Street, Durham registration district where the couple settled and looking at the GRO index of the children born post 1837 confirms the motherís maiden name of Mole (Moll).

I am aware that there is a marriage at Welbury, Yorks on 13/9/1829 of a Thomas Landreth to a Jane Byers and several online trees cite this marriage incorrectly. That is a separate couple who live in Yorkshire all their lives and raise their family there as confirmed by the censuses and parish register records.

Any help looking for the marriage would be appreciated.

Thank you.

  She is believed to be planning to run for President in 2020.

Yet again! See previous post.

Bet she ends up not running.

If you cross your fingers behind your back, it's always ok to go back on your word. Unless you have fingers on both hands crossed, in which case you have cancelled things out, and you have to keep your promise.

Even kids in the playground know this.

Apart from the Trump aspect, it is good to get some sort of insight into ethnicity estimates, even if it still does not fully convince me.

BIB - well Stephanie Clifford didn't she has just had her case (one of) against him dismissed and has to pay his costs.

Yes Stephanie Clifford is Stormy Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, is the kind of laywer who gives lawyers a bad name in my opinion. I don't think he represents any of his clients well but wouldn't be surprised given his antics if he doesn't run for office sooner or later.

I read Roberta Estes blog this morning, before that I had never heard of Elizabeth Warren.

The article is interesting, as she looks at it from a detached viewpoint and is going to break it down in two separate blog posts.

My usual viewpoint is that ethnicity results can be taken with a pinch of salt, but it obviously means more to some people, and presence or absence of a particular ethnic inheritance becomes vital.

Elizabeth Warren's main reason for making her tests public appears to be the promise of $1,000,000 donation to charity from President Trump, who reportedly refers to her as Pocahontas.

Good luck to her, I hope she gets the money from him, but not holding my breath.

Regards Margaret

I have quoted you in full so that when (if) this finally escapes the moderation procedure (longest delay to date 22 hours) it will be apparent which post it relates to.

Basically she is wasting her time in my opinion. As quite a lot of people who have posted here have previously said this DNA ethnicity malarkey is just a bit of fun and these DNA tests do not prove anything other than what you have in common with some people in randomly self-selected control populations, which in turn are proof of nothing. Indeed I recently read on here, or from a link on here, about a court case in America where some individual is suing The DBE program at the U.S. Department of Transportation because he was denied a grant available to minorities. He submitted his DNA results which said he was Black but these were ignored by the Department hence the law suit.

This is not the original article but gives the story in short

The original story I read had links to other cases where ethnicity DNA cases have come before the courts including the Supreme Court and how the courts have done summersaults and back flips with many conflicting verdicts. Hence why I say she is wasting her time.

As to you never having heard of Elizabeth Warren before she is a Democratic politician who is perennially touted as a Democratic candidate for President but each time someone or something stops her running and given her recent shenanigans during the Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings she cannot have improved her chances any (in the interests of balance I say that of quite a few people on both sides of the aisle. Again just my opinion).
