Durham / St Andrews Chapel - Jarrow area?
« on: Friday 16 July 21 18:59 BST (UK)  »
I have the following death notice from the Newcastle Evening Chronicle
17 Nov 1931

MANN– Jarrow 4, Maple Street (the residence of her son-in-law, H Anderson) aged 58 years. Maria, beloved wife of the late William Mann and relict of Alfred Horsley. Interment, Wednesday, leaving residence 2.45pm, service in St. Andrews Chapel. All friends kindly invited.

Maple St appears to be about a mile from Jarrow Cemetery (where husband 1 was buried, still looking for husband 2's death and burial) so that would seem likely for her burial too.

But I am struggling to find anything about where St Andrews Chapel was/is.
Please can anyone point me in the right direction?


Northumberland / Mary Grey/Gray - is this straw worth clutching?
« on: Wednesday 14 July 21 18:02 BST (UK)  »
Mary Grey/Gray married Matthew Anderson 21 Oct 1848 aftr Banns at All Saints , Newcastle
Of 'full age' and a spinster, father William Gray decd occ miner.
Her age in the census returns and at death equates to her being born 1825 +/- the usual parameters depending on who knew what. Her birth place in 1851 and 1861 is given as Kenton.
1851 P2401/F162/Pg14
1861 P 3812/F 97/ Pg 28
She's not a problem to trace after marriage through to her death in 1862, but her birth is proving more difficult

Given the list of possibles I have found for this family (see below) the current favourite theory is that as there is no trace of her baptism at Gosforth  IF her Dad moved to another pit c 1822 and then the family returned to Kenton by 1826, therefore Kenton was the first place she remembered living. Then this baptism may fit the bill?

St Andrew Newcastle, Nov 16 1823



Long list of what I have 'tentatively' found for this family (hopefully will save others from having to search from scratch, just to be told, yeah I knew that !)
1841 census Low Felling, Heworth
Piece 297/Book 2/Folio 27/Page 12 and next image

1848 Dad William, a deputy aged 50, died in 1848 at Felling Pit , (head fractured by stone)

1851 census for Mary's widowed Mam, Ann, and children still at home
Low Felling, Heworth
Piece 2401/Folio 172/Pg 34


1818 Marriage Gosforth William Grey and Ann Dawson

1819 Baptism, Gosforth Thomas Grey
1819 Burial Gosforth, Thomas Grey age 2 weeks

1820 Baptism, Gosforth Ann Grey - not with parents in 1841

1822 Baptism, Gosforth, Thomas Grey - not with parents in 1841
1822 Burial, Gosforth Thomas Grey, aged 11 days

1826 Baptism Gosforth, William Grey - on above census as 11 in 1841 and 23 in 1851

1830 Baptism Gosforth, Matthew Grey - on above census as 5 in 1841 and 20 in 1851

1833 Baptism Hetton le Hole, John Grey - on above census as 5 in 1841 and 17 in 1851

1836 Baptism Hetton le Hole, Dinah Gray - on above census as 1851 as 14 (Lord knows where she was in 1841!)
transcript (no Bts for this year) baptised 26 Jun 1836 Dinah Gray of Cross Lanes (same abode as John in 1833) born 11 May daughter of William (pitman) and Ann Gray.

I have suspicions as to who this lady 'could' be but am waiting for possible confirmation of that, will update if/when I find out.

EDIT Looks like my suspicions were correct. Have just been told this 'is' Vera Jobling from Jarrow. Her dates were 1924-2011 and she married in 1944 at St Paul, Jarrow.

If anyone can give me a date based on her dress and possibly the hairstyle I'd appreciate it. I 'think' she has either a wedding or engagement ring on?
And though its not too bad, if anyone could do that voodoo you all do so well and give the photo a clean up that would be wonderful.


The Common Room / GRO pdf odd problem
« on: Saturday 10 July 21 17:40 BST (UK)  »
I placed an order for a birth pdf on 2nd Jul. Estimated delivery date was 9th Jul.
Checked my orders in case the email had gone astray and am bemused  as it says it was Despatched on 9th Jul. !
The Application Progress bit says
In Progress 02/07/2021 at 18:46:42
Despatched  09/07/2021 at 12:50:50

The View PDF button is just not there. I've raised a query with them as it looks like its stuck in their system.
Hopefully I am the only one affected by this but if you are waiting for a pdf and its overdue check the order status, just in case :-)


The Common Room / Ancestry tree 'Gallery' - how to make the sort option stick?
« on: Friday 09 July 21 11:47 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone know of a way to set sort the images in the gallery for each person by a-z as default?
I can do it each time I view but then it defaults back to by date added next time I look.

Its bugging me big time!


Durham / Durham Record Office - take a bow!
« on: Monday 05 July 21 14:37 BST (UK)  »
I wanted a marriage record, GRO would cost £11 and take about a week.

Ok I know it was a parish marriage and have the date and venue.

12 mins past 1,  I sent off a Quick search request costs £5

29 mins past 2, a scan from a microfilm, perfectly readable, dropped into my inbox

Got to love them ! Really worth bearing in mind if anyone wants a marriage record and they know the parish.


The Lighter Side / Question for the North East of England contingent, please
« on: Friday 02 July 21 17:05 BST (UK)  »
I don't watch tv, ours seems to be a bit broken as all it ever seems to have on is sport and dust.

Mr Boo is watching a football match and Spain is one of the teams.

Does any one else from the North East, who has listened to Spain's National Anthem think the main refrain is a slowed down version of The Keel Row?
If you haven't heard it , its here:


Thanks to all who helped so much with Ernest Jobling :-)
I  hope I'm not pushing my luck but this photo too, if possible, would benefit from a clean and repair of the (luckily not on her face) creases.

Ethel was Ernest's sweetheart (later his wife) and while he was in the mud in the trenches thinking of her, she was back in Jarrow waiting and worrying about him.

We, quite rightly, remember and respect the boys who went to serve, but in a different way those who had to carry on at home suffered too.  I can't even begin to imagine how hard it was for those at home never knowing if the next day the telegram which would shatter their lives would arrive.
