Well that is great news Lady Heather

can you tell me who he married as my John was brought up by his Aunt in Shields before moving away briefly to Yorkshire,married then came back to North Shields
I have never been able to verify Robert was actually his father
other than he states he is on his marriage certificate

I have looked at that but my John was brought up by Roberts sister in Shields ,take a
look at the 1841 census John Reddle I have his Aunts second marriage certificate and this confirms her fathers name,she has a daughter born out of  wedlock,baptised later in South Shields,and John on his marriage states his father is Robert a pipemaker, John himself does not get baptised until he is an adult at St Peters in North Shields,and again gives his father as Robert but no mothers name is recorded so you can see where the confusion comes from,Robert dies in the workhouse as does his brother John no dates of the top of my head
John and his Aunt move to North Allerton after her marriage returning to Shields after her husband died she is recorded living in the same St as John and his wife Eliza

I've looked at the written records of that 1841 survey. Handwriting is shocking. Hard to make out what is what there.
