Unfortunately not, I"ve come to a dead end with this. All I have is a hand written family tree with these names on it. Our family history is in the Northumberland and surrounding areas.
My Nan tells me that the Stephenson name has a link to the Rocket. Im still trying to get my hands on birth certificates, so if I find any more info, Ill be sure to forward it.
Thanks heaps
Rebecca  :)

Hi everyone, George Robert Stephenson was my great great great grandfather. So much mystery around George R, even with the knowledge I have there are still missing links which i would like to find- to do with Georges R's children, it is the missing link in my story.
Mary Stephenson  who was one of G's male son's daughter and my great grandmother well she married a Thomas Clayton in 1898 and they had six children, one girl -my grandmother and 5 boys.
When the last direct relations of Stephenson died off in the states, two of these brothers kept quiet about the inheritance they received from the Stephenson estate, yet still with in my are the plates.

So who I am looking for are male (s) children of George Robert Stephenson- anyone with any ideas.
Bless you all

Barbara,
I have the make chldren of GRS Robert, George, Henry, Thomas St Lawrence, but  none of them had a daughter Mary.
I wonder if you have the right George Robert Stephenson. There may have been several.
What are the plates you mention? They may help
Bob

Well I guess we are looking at the Jarrow area, and am only saying that, because my Mother was born there, and that's where my Grandmother hails from. The only other information I have about Mary is the date she was born 1880 and the date she was married 1898, but nothing on Thomas Clayton.

hello barbera,
i stumbled on this chat, whilst trying to look up my family tree, my grandads mother was mary jane stephenson from jarrow she was born so im told 14th oct 1900, she married a man called joseph sewell coulson. mary janes father was a george stephenson born around 1880 he apparently had around 5 children - dorothy,margaret,alice,george and mary i dont know of his wifes name but she died and he married again to a lady called mabel and they had i think 3 more kids. i wonder if you or anyone else could shed some more light on this or possibly tell me if this links my family to george robert stephenson'. many thanks joe.
