Marriage of Christopher Robson - circa 1812 possibly South Shields
« on: Friday 23 January 15 11:50 GMT (UK) »
I am researching a Robson family and on the 1851 census I have Christopher Robson, aged 70 living in Westoe with his son William (38) & his daughter Sarah (34).  Whilst Christopher was born in Longhaugh, Bellingham, Northumberland both of his children were born in South Shields.  I am trying to trace Christopher's marriage which could be around 1812 or even earlier possibly in South Shields or may even be in Northumberland.  Any suggestions?

I wasn't aware of his wife's name but this looks promising.  It also explains why I couldn't find their baptisms around their date of birth - obviously had all 3 christened on the same day.  Now I need to find the marriage of Christopher Robson to a Sarah - and it could be Sarah Hall.  Also need to establish year of bhirth for John Hall Robson.  Many thanks, Rosie

  It also explains why I couldn't find their baptisms around their date of birth - obviously had all 3 christened on the same day. 

The Bishops Transcripts show the 3 baptisms but the only extra bit of detail is father's occupation - joiner

It's looking good for Sarah being Christopher's wife, burial 25th July 1839 aged 67 St Hilda, Sarah Robson Hill Street - Christopher was shown living in Hill Street in the 1841 census

If my idea is right that his wife was a Sarah Hall then this would fit nicely with that burial record -

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWNS-68W

Shirl, the occupation of 'joiner' fits in - on his son William's marriage certificate it states Christopher was a 'Joiner' despite the census calling him a 'Sawyer'.
Now, in my opinion, we need to find a marriage for Christopher Robson & Sarah Hall somewhere around 1812

I couldn't see anything online for a Sarah Hall marriage, but the Sarah Hall baptism is tempting.

A sawyer worked with wood so it is not surprising to see him called a joiner.
Have you looked at www.durhamrecordsonline.com for a marriage?    www.genuki.org.uk may have useful links too.   Particularly http://joinermarriageindex.co.uk/
