Sussex Lookup Requests / Re: streeter morris newman

Thank you. I used to have the newspaper article for his father, also named Streeter Morris Newman, when he also died in a marine death. He died Dec 1873.  It stated something about the shipwreck and some survived. I can no longer find the article. Can anyone tell me where to find it?
Thank you,

Does anyone have the death date for Streeter Morris Newman, born 22 Nov 1868? I know he was alive until 1904 because he is listed in the Electoral Registers. I have nothing after that date.

Hey Paul,
Have you found out where any of the Stainthorp's are buried? I cannot find any burial records anywhere on any of them. I found one grave at, I believe, St. Hilda's when we were there last summer.

I couldn't find a Charles Haxworth on Durham Records. There are quite a few Elizabeth Forrest's however. The only marriage for that date was with a William Wompra and the dates were close (21 Apr 1849).

Joseph Pearson is such a common name and I cannot tell who he may have married. He would had to have married 2 women both named Margaret and I doubt that is the case. I think I used the wrong Margaret with my particular Joseph. I have sent for some death certificates for Margaret Pearson around the age I think she died. I don't know of any other option. The person that emailed me didn't think there was a change of wife, just that I had listed the wrong wife. She was their relative and I had listed their relative's children in with the children of my relative.. (boy... did that even make sense???)
I am just trying to find out the correct Margaret that married Joseph Pearson, blacksmith around 1810. Children that I am pretty sure of: John (3 July 1814); Joseph (28 apr 1816); Catherine (ca 1818); William (ca 1824).

I have not been online for a long while. You are correct. I lost the link and could not for the life of me remember the name of the chat... I would love more info on the Kneeshaw line. I went to England a couple of years ago and found Margaret Kneeshaw Pearson's grave, along with her husband and son.. All buried together in one plot.. is this common?
Thanks. I too had to go back and read the threads... Thanks to both of you for your help. Kneeshaw is an uncommon name. It helped that their son had it for a middle name.

I haven't replied to this post for some time but am all confused again. I put Margaret Mustard down as wife of Joseph Pearson... all 8 of the children made sense by birth date; Joseph (father of all the children was a blacksmith); wife was Margaret.. first set of 4 girls lists their mother as Margaret Mustard. Nothing for the last 4. I have all that information. I recently received an email from the descendants of one of the first 4 girls who stated that the last 4 children do not belong to their Margaret Mustard. They know who their relatives are and they are not my 4... so do I take their word for it? So now do I try to hunt for another Margaret (so many to choose from) or just drop it and not go any further? Looking for some advice.
Thanks for any advice you can send my way...

I will send for the will. Thanks.  Is there a link to the Shoreham, Sussex area for baptismal records?
And what made you look for Sophia as Sarah Jane's mother?
