Help with Robert Mason please.
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 18:43 GMT (UK) »
I have a Robert Mason b1851 in Norwich, Norfolk. Sometime between 1871 and 1881 he moved to Ford, Durham. Now more commonly known as South Hylton.
During this time he married an Elizabeth Winskill b1861 in Cox Green, Durham.
I know the family from Robert and Elizabeth onwards but I can't find Robert's parents or siblings. I have spoken to other family members who have not been able to find out about them either.
I have found a James mason b1802 and a Sarah A Mason b1813 as possible parents but they are questionable.
I would really appreciate it if someone else would be able to have a look too. Thanks

What record makes you suggest his parents are "James mason b1802 and a Sarah A Mason b1813" ?

is it a census? What other kids/family members appear in the record?

I see on all censuses from 1881 onwards he is consistent about giving his place of birth as Norwich.

I don't have a birth certificate as I'm waiting for it at the moment.
The names came from a census. I will attach it now.

Birth or marriage certificate? Really we are better waiting until you get the marriage certificate otherwise we could be following the wrong Robert Mason, as there are a lot (see Pauline's post) born in Norfolk in 1851.
