Thanks Sillgen, I've checked them out but no further joy on the marriage of Christopher Robson & Sarah.  I am of the opinion that John Hall Robson was the eldest of the 3 children - I think he married Jane Robinson in 1837 (see FreeBMD) and John & Jane Robson appear on the 1841 & 1851 censuses
and one of their sons was named Christopher (after his grandad).  The ages shown for John on these census records (30 in 1841), (47 - I think this should be 40 amended to 41 in 1851) & (50 in 1861) suggest he was born around 1809-11.  This would suggest the marriage would have been around 1808-09.

The John Hall Robson who married Jane in 1837 was apparently widowed at the time of marriage.

That's got to be worth following up, the BTs unfortunately don't give anything else except that the marriage was by banns and that they were both of the chapelry of St Hilda.

Familysearch has possible christenings for children of James & Sarah Fairweather in South Shields (one gives mothers surname Hall) in 1796/1799/1801 and 1802. 
There is a burial for a James Fairweather but the transcript says he is single  ::)  Born c1773 died 1803
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JCZD-GXB

It is worth further investigation

Many, many thanks to both Rosie & Shirl for a fantastic result - I think there were only 3 children for James & Sarah - Elizabeth (1796), Alice (1798, sadly died 1801) & Ann (1802).  Thanks a million, girls - this is what Rootschat is all about!

Hello
I have Robson ancestors born at Longhaugh Shield in Bellingham

My John Robson was born 1774 & must be the brother of Christopher Robson sons of William Robson.
John Robson married Ann Dixon who was born at Haltwhistle Nbl
John has a son named Christopher Robert they are living at Longhaugh Shields
Abot 25 years ago I went in search of Longhaugh Shield walking west from Bellingham village about 30 minute easy walk

I was amazed to find Christopher on the 1841 & 1851 census in South Shields.
Christopher Robson born 1781 wife is Elizabeth Hunter bn c1872
married 1797 at Elsdon Northumberland
Source Hugh Wallis
children born at Longhaugh Shield parents are Chritopher Robson & Elizabeth Hunter
Border Riever name.  There are so many Robsons in Northumberland & South Shields is famouse for them.
I often pass St Hilda's Church in South Shields Market Place
Unable to locate a 2nd marriage for Christopher in South Shields 

Will let you know what I can find
