Lookup Request Please - Fellside, Hexham Electoral Rolls 1895 - 1896
« on: Saturday 11 November 17 06:59 GMT (UK) »
Would anyone be kind enough to have a look at the electoral rolls for Fellside, Hexham, 1895 - 1896. My Great Grandfather, George Brown, and family, moved there from Sunderland sometime between January 1895 & November 1896 following the death of one of his children in a house fire.

I have a number of documents relating to the family living there, BDM's, census records etc but none of them includes a house number.

Thanks,
Douglas,
Queensland, Australia

It is quite likely that there was no house number at this time.  As you mentioned there was no indication on census though it is enumerated next to 'Delegate Hall'

I guess the only way to check would be to look at the electoral rolls for the period. I did look on the 1939 register, although they weren't there at that time, to see if any of the houses had numbers but that wasn't helpful.

Is there a local studies centre, similar to that in Sunderland, where I could request help via email.
