Thank you Jenny & Middlesbrough

Suppose I was clutching at straws as findmypast record I saw just showed surname 'C'!

The baptism in Sheffield is a possibility as this family was large and travelled!! I currently have no children for Robert & wife Bella before the baptism, in Sedgefield of James in 1824, they married in Scarborough in 1818, so it is possible. I would have thought they would have had had children between 1818-1824!

I am trying to find the baptism of Robert Cunningham - there is a possibility in 1792 seen on findmypast:-
Birth 7 Oct 1792  Baptism 11 Nov 1792 but the surname is not shown except for starting with C - parents Thomas & Ann. I've tried finding this entry on the actual register but can't find it.

Would someone be able to check the actual register for me? If it helps the Cunningham family were travelers


Thank you Trish  :)

The details given below are fantastic however it proves that they are not my family. I will have to keep looking for William Sweet marrying Elizabeth Whinfield. 'My' William Sweet was a clerk - 1841c and solicitors managing clerk 1851c

best wishes

Thank you Christine

Another theory disproved will just have to keep looking for a marriage of William Sweet to Elizabeth Whinfield (father Richard).

Thanks for your help

Hi All

I have given myself a headache with this so thought would ask for help from someone who visits TWAS. I am researching my Whinfield family and need assistance with the following:-

1) William Sweet married Ann Winskell by banns at Newcastle St Johns 24/7/1832 - this was seen from BT (as you can see Winskell is very close to Whinfield) however I believe Ann Sweet died aged 28 Oct-Dec 1839. There is a birth on freebmd for Mary Sweet Jul-Sep 1837 with mothers surname as Winskell so presume surname is correct
2) William then married Elizabeth 9/8/1840 also at N/cle St John. My problem is that freebmd has the surname of Elizabeth as Robson as does familysearch however the mothers surname for William & Elizabeth's children is Whinfield (in fact one son has Whinfield as his middle name)
Children - Jane Margaret Sweet born June 1841   Mary Elizabeth Sweet Jul-Sep 1842  Richard Whinfield Sweet Oct-Dec 1843

I haven't been able to find a death of Elizabeth Sweet just after marrying William nor a marriage of William to Elizabeth Whinfield (he died Nov 1851)

Can some one check in Newcastle St John to;-

i)  confirm surnames of both William's wives i.e. Ann & Elizabeth
ii) if marriage entry is copy of wedding certificate what is the name of Elizabeth's father & his trade

Thank you for any assistance with this conundrum

Hi Boo

The records seen were on Durhamrecordsonline - never think of familysearch for info re Licenses. I use familysearch all the time to look through BTs

Could the fact that he was from Tanfield and she from Lanchester explain the 2 different Churches listed for their nuptials?
