Durham / Re: George Hobson lookup please!
« on: Saturday 28 February 09 00:15 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you Jennifer - That looks extremely promising! I will certainly have a look at the site - think i need to download an update first, though.
And thank you too, Barbara, The Kyo entries are definitely George - with wife and all his offspring by 1871.  I have seen the 1881 census - Ann has died and George has remarried - and his father must have died too.
I had thought George's mother was a Robinson - but the 1819 burial is too early, he was born 1825 and so how could she be a Robinson? - Ahhh, more questions!
Thank you both so much for all the information - I need to ponder!

Durham / George Hobson lookup please!

Can anyone help or advise please? 
George Hobson, born at the Windmill Hills, Gateshead.  Reputedly on 20-06-1825.  As this birth is before  1837 how and where do I find out if this is his birthday and where exactly he was born, what were the names of his parents and how many siblings? His father was a grinder at one of the mills. George was sent to his grandfather at Harperley mills, Kyo near Catchgate at an early age because his mother, " ... taking a fever, I had to be taken out of the way." ( George's own words. ) His grandfather wouldn't part with him thereafter, and he stayed at Harpeley for the rest of his life. He died in 1905. He had brother called Michael, but were there any children?
Can anyone can throw any light on the subject as I don't know what to do next.

Hi Janet,
I am afraid I don't know anything about George Hobson's wife Ann Moor other than he remarried after her death.  All George's children were by her - the youngest being Michael Moor Hobson.  Ann was my GG grandmother. How are you connected?  I would be very interested in anything you know about her or her family.

Hi, I believe James Allan's father was also called James and was from Aberdeen and was something to do with ship building.  You can see the problem - there are loads of James Allans in Aberdeen.

Looking for Allans in Aberdeen.  My great grandfather, James Allan was supposed to have been born in Aberdeen about 1850 - 52 but moved south to London aged 2 years approx. Was known to be in in Wallsend, on the Tyne, in his 20's ( he was a plater in the shipyards) and twice became mayor of Wallsend thereafter.  He married Elizabeth Hicks.  His children were Jack Stanley, ( well known local football player)  Amy, Elizabeth known as Lillie,  Wallace and Hilda Leonora. Does anyone known who James's father and mother were.  The problem is there are too many James Allans in and around Aberdeen at that time.
