Hunters and Charlton families of the North East
« on: Saturday 16 September 17 10:21 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

I have one line of my tree that I've not yet done much work on - but as it is my Nan's maternal line, and she is 94 and still with us, I'd like to make some progress for her. I have to date stayed around Staffordshire/Shropshire and the Midlands and my grandad's side....so here goes.

My Great Grandmother was

MARGERET ANN HUNTER
BIRTH 22ND DECEMBER 1895 Newcastle, Northumberland, England
DEATH 13TH FEB 1982 Stafford, Staffordshire, England, United Kingdom

Who married JAMES HARRISON on 15 Dec 1921 in Walker, Northumberland. He then took Margeret back to Staffordshire where they stayed and had the family around Doxey Wood Cottage/Rickerscote/Stafford.

'Now I'm looking for the correct BMDs for Margeret Hunter's parents who stayed in the NE. My Nan (Florence Harrison/robertson) often talks of her mother going up to NE to care for her dying mother during WW2.

I believe Margeret's parents are:

THOMAS HUNTER
BIRTH 1866 Hedley Hill, Northumberland, England

and

BIRTH 1867 Broomhaugh, Northumberland, England, United Kingdom

They were still living around Bath Street, Walker in 1911.

My tree has a rough plan for this line on Ancestry (Robertson Family Research) but there are probably errors on it, as it's based on work of a relative a long time ago and public trees!!

Thanks for your help in verifying and getting deaths for my 2nd GGPs (and anything else you can discover!)

I am not positive of Thomas in 1871 Census.

I think you need the 1887 Marriage Cert to confirm his Fathers name/occp.
