Northumberland / Wilson - Help
« on: Tuesday 19 March 24 17:58 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All,

After a few years off Iíve returned to researching and whilst Iíve found a few more things with the help of further released documents, one person is giving me the run around and I am stuck.

I am trying to find a marriage and death for William Wilson born 1905 Gateshead to Thomas Wilson and Mary Elizabeth Wilson mother maiden name Bailey.

On the 1911 census they are in Elswick. I canít find him on the 1921 census but I have found 3 newspaper articles of him being arrested (along with his brother 😅) and it states he had a black record, these were circa 1923. In 1927 he is in the electoral register at 188 Albion row (predominantly the family home) there is also a Christina Wilson listed and Iím unaware as to who she is. They are still there in 1932.

I then find him on the 1953 electoral roll at 27 pottery bank (another house known to the family) but I still canít find a marriage or death. Iíve recently been told he had a daughter called Margaret who lived round the corner and when married she became a Moore, any help or fresh eyes would be appreciated.

Hi all,

Iíd taken a break from searching but have come back to it now the 1921 census is out, but Iím really struggling.

Out of either side Iím searching the one I thought would be easiest I canít find any of them anywhere. Iíd be grateful for any help (fresh eyes may be required!) or Iíve just genuinely lost my touch.

Itís the Hermitage family Iím looking for William Henry Hermitage (1865) & Sarah Emily Hermitage (nee Collins) (1862) and particularly there daughter Grace Emily who married George Herbert Iley in 1919. Iíve tried searching all name variants.

Thank you.

Northumberland Lookup Requests / Alice Armstrong 1910
« on: Sunday 29 September 19 09:36 BST (UK)  »
I'm trying to research Alice Armstrong born 1910 she's the daughter of Elliott Armstrong (1887) and Elizabeth Ann (Forbes) (1890) I can't seem to find any records relating to her after Elliott's army record from1915. If anyone could help or has any knowledge of the family etc it would be much appreciated. They lived in Elswick Newcastle, particularly 9 Spring Street.

Northumberland / Wilsonís of Walker
« on: Thursday 30 May 19 08:25 BST (UK)  »
Iím trying to trace Wilsonís who lived in Walker.

I have some certificates but Iím stuck on a couple of the children.

They lived on Albion Row specifically at 188 from around 1914 onwards.

On the 1911 census I have them living on Duke Street Thomas Wilson b1875 & Mary Elizabeth Wilson b1877 with Margaret A Wilson 1896 Georgina Wilson 1899 John Thomas Wilson 1903 William Wilson 1906 Elizabeth J Wilson 1907 Mary A Wilson 1909 & Arthur E Wilson 1911.

I am predominantly trying to track William 1906 & Mary 1909.

Mary Elizabeth died in 1920 and I have found on the electoral roll up until around 1938 Thomas Wilson still living in 188 Albion Row along with a William Wilson, Arthur Wilson & Christina Wilson. I wondered was Christina possibly Williams wife but I canít find anything and Iím a bit stuck. Any help or knowledge of the Wilsons would be much appreciated.

Ross & Cromarty / Fostering
« on: Wednesday 06 March 19 07:21 GMT (UK)  »
Would there be anyone out there who has any local knowledge of possible fostering in Rosskeen? I was led to believe relatives who settled there had lots of children. Yesterday I received a photo which would ultimately back this up but I can only find one birth for the parents anywhere in the UK. Iím starting to think could they be fostered? I have very limited knowledge of the area etc

England / Help with Birth look ups

Iíve hit a brick wall and hope someone out there can help me. I can only find one birth between a William Henry Hermitage and a Margaret Wendy Bennetto but Iím told they had several children. Anyone any ideas?

Ross & Cromarty / Rosskeen Churchyard
« on: Tuesday 06 November 18 07:11 GMT (UK)  »
Hoping for some help to point me in the right direction, I have ancestors whom are buried in Rosskeen Churchyard, is there anyway to find out there plot numbers and if there is a headstone etc?

Iím assuming Rosskeen was a a naval place after WW2 and thatís how they ended up there? Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

Wondering if anyone with a bit more knowledge can help me out. I thought I had the correct death for Thomas Wilson but I donít. Iíve just ordered his wifeís death cert and he actually registered her death. He was born in 1875 and I believed he died in 1914 but Mary died in 1920 so he was still alive then. Any help would be gratefully received.
