Durham Lookup Requests / Sarah Jane Robson
« on: Saturday 29 June 13 23:57 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for advice on where to find Sarah Jane Robson's parents. She appears to have been born in Stockton, according to the 1861 Greatham census where she lives with her grandfather, James Robson.Also in the 1881 census, her birth place is listed as Stockton. Her marriage license to John William Stainthorp lists no father, although John's father is listed. Her grandfather was a coastguard man, so thought maybe his son was of the sea also. Her grandfather lists her as his beneficiary. Would his will list whether he had children or other grandchildren? I have found her death certificate, which lists her age as 67 in 1902. The burial I found lists her age as 73 for a burial 3 days later at St. John's in Greatham so may not be her burial record, I understand. I do believe she was buried at St Johns as I found a headstone there that had her name and the name of her husband,while we were on vacation there.  I found a baptismal record that is close for 1841 but that age would be a bit off and also states she was born in Tynemouth. Any suggestions or ideas that may help? I am just stuck.

Yorkshire (North Riding) Lookup Requests / William Wright Stainthorp
« on: Thursday 25 December 08 01:54 GMT (UK)  »
I don't know if I am in the right area of Yorkshire.
I am looking for any information on William Wright Stainthorp and his wife, Mary Ann Bainbridge. He was born in Hutton, Rudby around 1811 and she, of course, was born around Greatham in the Durham area. I have their marriage license record from 1833 in Greatham. I have census records and the names of their children. Where were they buried and where were they born?

Hi. I am looking for a birth or baptism record for Margaret Kneeshaw born about 1810 in Stokesley, according to census records. I believe her father may be Thomas Kneeshaw, born about 1782 in Pickering. Margaret married John Pearson in the parish church in Acklam in 1837.
Thank you.

Durham Lookup Requests / early 1800's Pearson marriage-South Shields
« on: Monday 22 December 08 23:24 GMT (UK)  »
I need help finding a marriage license for Joseph Pearson (abt 1783) with Margaret (abt 1781). Joseph was a blacksmith. I found a Margaret Stephenson who married Joseph Pearson in South Shields at St. Hilda's in May 1810. Would it state the husband's occupation? I found 2 others; one in Gateshead in 1801- Margaret Scott; and one in Jarrow-1803- Margaret Mustard. Any suggestions to determine which is the right one?
