Chris:
Looking for any info on the White surname....even present day......in the Felkington area.....near Berwick-upon-Tweed.
Can go back to the 1700's.....Robert White married Jane Hall, July 21, 1778 in Tweedsmouth, Northumberland, England. This info from an old family bible.....not sure of it's present whereabouts!!
Their son Matthew White (no birth date available) married Jane Scott December 21, 1817.
Then their son Robert White (born November 14, 1818 in West allerdear/Felkington) married Elizabeth Hall, January 22, 1844......think THIS couple immigrated to Canada.

So any help out there? These are all great..gr..etc. grandparents.

I'd like a little help here too please. We are dealing with possibly just one and the same person.

I'd like to know if Jane White born 8 Nov 1820 at Felkington, Sandy Bank, is the same individual as my 3 x Gt Grandmother Jane Johnson nee Sanderson? I have had problems finding anything out about her before her Irregular Border Marriage at Lamberton Toll on 30 May 1851. That was to Adam Johnson born Newlands, Belford 1815.

She was, by census calculation born about 1821 at Felkington, Sandy Bank, Northumberland. I have only just sorted out exactly where that old farm was in close proximity to Grieve Stead (Grievestead today).

It might just be coincidence, but two Janes born more or less at the same time at the same location, though with different surnames, might well be the same person. If she was born White, married a Sanderson and then married Adam Johnson...........

After her marriage I have her on the censuses.

1861 RG 9; Piece: 3882; Folio: 61; Page: 2

1871 RG10; Piece: 5177; Folio: 52; Page: 13

1881 RG11; Piece: 5126; Folio: 55; Page: 19

1891 RG12; Piece: 4266; Folio: 42; Page: 12

1901 RG13; Piece: 4843; Folio: 31

She also appears on the 1911 census but I don't think I can post that info here.

She died in June of 1911 and is buried in Belford Churchyard with her husband and son. In 1851 she was age 30 when she married my 3 x Gt Grandfather, so there was plenty time for her to have been married before. White could well be her original maiden name.

How am I going to unravel this little lot?

Help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you

Philip
