Hi Lynne

That is very useful infomation, what year was john Rowlands born please. If Christopher was born in 1806 and Jonathan 2nd son in 1801, ther must be quite a family scattered around.

Kind Regards

David :D

Hi Lynne

Many thanks for that great detective work. If there are more children they are likely to be in the area around Gainsford & Chester Le Street. Is there a County Baptismal Index from 1801 -1837 for Durham as there is in a lot of other Counties ?

Kind Regards

David

teesdale district eggleston holy trinity
8th ofjuly 1810 william rowland of eggleston born 2 july twin  son of jonathan rowland by his wife elizabeth
8th of july 1810 george rowland of eggleston born 2 july twin 6th son of jonathan rowland by his wife elizabeth
thomas rowland 1808 teesdale jonathan and elizabeth

so up till now all to jonathan rowlands (rowland) and elizabeth
jonathan rowlands 1801 chester le street (rowlands) 2nd son
john  rowlands        1804 of langton teesdale gainford 3rd son
christopher rowlands 1806 of  langton teesdale gainford 4th son
these are maybe
thomas rowland       1808  teesdale  
william rowland twin  1810  
george rowland   twin 1810  eggleston

Hi Lynne

You are a star finding those baptisms. as there is a William Rowlands having a family in Haughton Le Skerne at the same time as my Jonathan was baptised as Jonathan Rowley !!!

As Jonathan was baptised as the second son in 1801, there is probably another birth shortly prior to that which narrows down the time date for the wedding.

Now I know that Elizabeth was the dr of Thomas, that narrows it down to 2 Elizabeth's born in 1768 and 1769 to a Thomas and I suspect that I will find the 1st Elizabeth died.

Kind Regards

David

David, are Jonathan and Elizabeth still alive for the 1851 census?

I've just been looking at dates and ages and notice that Elizabeth is quite a lot older than Jonathan. I realise that the ages estimated from the 1841 are not exact, but if Elizabeth's approximate year of birth is 1768/9 ish then she was 33 in 1801 when 2nd son Jonathan was born, and 42 when the twins (if they belong to the same family) were born ... so a little on the old side to be having babies at 2 year intervals ...  :-\

Of course the ages on the 1841 census may be wrong.

Hi Ruskie

I could nor see them on the 1851 Census, however if Jonathan is the second son born in 1810, she obviously married late in life, for those times and she was living in the sames viagge as the son William so that seems to sell the deal.

Kind Regards

David :D
