Stewart Lookup- North Shields- Please
« on: Wednesday 23 April 08 00:51 BST (UK) »
The only information I have is spotty at the best, here are some of my family ancestors names:

Ellen (Nelly) Stewart (son James)
Richard Alexander Taws (son Jacky Taws)

Jamesina Stewart (nee McGuire) dob 1904
James Stewart dob 199 dod 1956.

Any help would be apprecieated.

Hi jaktar1

Welcome to Rootschat..... you will find lots of people here who are very happy to help with your search.

I checked out Free BMD ... which you can find on the net at  www.freebmd.org.uk  and found a birth for a Richard Arthur TAWS in Tynemouth Northumberland  1879  and a marriage for a Richard Arthur P TAWS to and Ellen STEWART in 1903 also Tynemouth Northumberland.

Using this I checked the UK Census and found :-

1891 Census England Northumberland North Shields
RG12/4223/10/15
38 Bell Street

MARRETT
Elizabeth Married 44 Charwoman Malton Yorkshire
Richard TAWS Son Unmarr 13 Scholar North Shields Northumberland
William TAWS Son Unmarr 10 Scholar North Shields Northumberland
Edward D TAWS Son Unmarr 6 Scholar North Shields Northumberland

From this it seems that Richard had at least 2 brothers, William and Edward, both born in the same place as himself.  It also seems that their mother Elizabeth may have married a second time to a MARRETT?

I will keep looking and see what I can find out for you

Cheers

Hi again

Not sure where the surname MARRETT came from, but I can find a marriage for an Elizabeth J TAWS to a William FORSYTH in Tynemouth 1896.  The 1901 Census shows :-

1901 Census England Northumberland Tynemouth
RG13/4802/68/4
12 Stephenson Street

FORSYTH
William Head Marr 40 Dockyard Labourer Woolwich Kent
Elizabeth J Wife Marr 55 Pickering Yorkshire
Edward TAWS Step Son Unmarr 17 North Shields Northumberland
Annie POTTS Lodger Unmarr 40 Charwoman North Shields Northumberland

That ties in nicely with the Edward I found in 1891 with mother Elizabeth and brother's Richard and William

This looks like it might be the family in 1881, this gives a few more siblings and a father this time... still no idea about Elizabeth J's surname given in 1891 though...


1881 Census England Northumberland North Shields
RG11/5074/111/9
6 Dotwick Street

TAWS
David Head Marr 36 Marine Engine Driver ( seaman ) Northumberland North Shields
Jane Wife Marr 33 Engine Driver's Wife Malton Yorkshire
David Son Unmarr 10 Scholar Northumberland North Shields
Elizabeth J Dau Unmarr 8 Scholar Northumberland North Shields
John F Son Unmarr 3 Northumberland North Shields
Richard A Son Unmarr 2 Northumberland North Shields

It looks like Elizabeth Jane was flexable with her first name  --  either Elizabeth or Janes was used.  Maybe Jane here to avoid confusion with their eldest daughter who is also Elizabeth Jane.

1871 Census England Northumberland North Shields
RG10/5113/11/16
Society Bank

TAWS
David Head Marr 27 Steam Boatman Northumberland North Shields
Jane Wife Marr 26 Northumberland North Shields
Sarah J Dau Unmarr 2 Northumberland North Shields
David Son Unmarr 1 mth Northumberland North Shields

Of course the only way to prove any of this is your family line will be to buy Richard Arthur TAWS birth certificate to confirm his parents names.

Revisited the 1891 Census and it is actually Elizabeth J BARRETT not MARRETT.  Not that it helps much as there is no marriage that I can find between a TAWS and a BARRETT, and anyway when Elizabeth Jane marries FORSYTH it is as TAWS not BARRETT.
I'm confused on this one....... :-\ :-\

Karenlee, thanks for all your help with this, I think you hit on  something with the Richard Taws and Ellen Stewart, I was give information by on of my aunts (she is very old and fogets a lot) that this was the name of her Grandparents and that Ellen also had a son named James who was my Grandfather, he married a lady called Jamesina McGuire (dob 1904 unknown dod), my Granfather was born (out of wedlock before Ellen married Richard) in 1899  and died in 1956.
