Whitworths in Greatham
« on: Saturday 16 June 07 21:00 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find the name of the mother of Amelia Whitworth, and her date of death. Amelia  was born 1860 in Greatham. Her father was called William and he was born in Lincolnshire. Amelia's mother had died by 1871.
Many thanks, Margaret.

Thanks very much Tati for searching- yes I would love to have the other details, I didn't know about  the older children, or Mary's name and family.
Best wishes, Margaret

Many thanks Tati, I never realised my great grandmother came from such a large family,though she obviously continued the family tradition - going on to have 11 children herself!
Best wishes, Margaret.

Thanks for those records hpool- the Greatham ones tie in well with the census info. so far and provide some new offspring- shame the twin boys did not survive though. It was interesting to see the Royal Navy reference- do coastguards count as R.N. or did he have navy service?
Best wishes, Margaret
