Kirkharle 'Arthur' and Bellingham 'Heron'
« on: Tuesday 27 March 18 01:08 BST (UK) »
x3 siblings appear to have married x3 siblings. I am trying to trace mothers for both sets of siblings

Andrew Heron                                                 
baptism 4 Mar 1720 St Cuthbert, Bellingham       
father Thomas Heron of 'Clues' Bellingham                                                                                     
married in Kirkharle 14 May 1754 to
Mary Arthur
baptised 19 Aug 1723 Kirkharle
father William Arthur


Elizabeth Heron                                                           
baptised 9 Sep 1733 St Cuthbert Bellingham                         
father Thomas Heron of 'The Hole' Bellingham                                                                                       
married in Kirkharle 22 May 1768
Christopher Arthur
baptised 11 Mar 1732 Kirkharle
father William Arthur


William Heron
baptised 24 Jun 1731 Hebron or Bothal
married in Kirkharle 23 May 1762
Eleanor Arthur
baptised 26 Dec 1734 Kirkharle
father William Arthur


The Heron siblings are definitely siblings and born to Thomas Heron who lived at Clews, Bellingham and then 'The Hole' Bellingham and finally Hott Hill, Bellingham. He died in 1783 and his Will doesn't lend any clue as to who his wife was.

The Arthur siblings is more of a guess, based on they were all called Arthur, all baptised and all married in the same church in Kirkharle and all have a 'William Arthur' listed as their father.

I'm trying to find
For Thomas Heron - date of birth / baptism / name of wife / name of parents / any siblings

For William Arthur - dates of birth / death, confirmation that the 3 names children are all his and most importantly, who his wife was.

I have found a likely marriage I think for William Arthur on FreeReg to a Margaret Brown 21 May 1717 in Kirkharle, but can't link it to any of the children. This leads to the question could there be any connection with Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, if it is Margaret Brown.

The Kirkharle Bishops transcripts don't appear to be available online for dates that early

There were no wills relevant to any of these people I could find

What would then next step be / place to look or can anyone offer any help?

thanks
Christian

Thank you Radcliff
Apologies about the notes, I set it out on an iPad trying to make the groups of siblings and marriages look clear but realised it was messed up on other devices / computer, so have simplified

Thomas Herons Will states he was late of Hott Hill, Bellingham but 'of' The Hole in the parish of Simonburn
I have him in 1735 at The Hole and again in 1782 at Hott Hill, but nothing in between and can't find anything to link him to Woodley Shield, but it seems Elizabeth is a distinct possibility.
