I donít wear scarves either, there is hope! My great grandmother, who was 93 when she passed away, used to to say, ďI didnít get to this age putting up with nonsenseĒ.

So no scarves and not tolerating nonsense.

« on: Wednesday 18 August 21 08:34 BST (UK)  » (The Irish Place Names Commission) confirms that there was a version of Sooey spelled Suie in the past. Also Suiye and Sooghey, among others. has some interesting folklore and local history pertaining to the area from a project in the early 20th century where accounts were taken from school children who spoke to older neighbours.

Thank you! Iím just reading the stories, I see a Fallon mentioned as a strong man 😂 thank you for your help.

Fantastic! Thank you so much all!

I can now see Suie! This is the first recorded place name in Ireland for this family. So exciting. Thank you! So I at least know they were there for the birth of their first child.

Well done, I know that feeling of shear elation when finally finding an answer.

Looking geographically at a map a straight line can almost be drawn between Annan/Longtown/Hexham and Sunderland. The below marriage ref may be that of Jane & Robert, timescales would tie in nicely with birth of first child.

Marriages Sep 1837   

ANDERSON    Jane        Sunderland    24   154    
FLETCHER    Elizabeth        Sunderland    24   154    
NIXON    John        Sunderland    24   154    
SMITH    Edward Oxnard        Sunderland    24   154   
SPARK    Catharine        Sunderland    24   154   
STOREY    Frances        Sunderland    24   154    
WYLAM    Robert        Sunderland    24   154   
YOUNG    Robert        Sunderland   24     154


Added :This 1851 census ref will be of great interest to you

842/ 6/ 4

I followed the nephew William to his family, Berwick upon Tweed. His father being from Tweedmouth. The Robert Young in Longtown in 1871 is also born in Tweedmouth.

Jane Anderson

This looks very positive if the mum was named!

Published: Tuesday 29 July 1856
Newspaper: Teviotdale Record and Jedburgh Advertiser

Per an advert in the newspaper above, a Robert Young of Longtown opens a China and earthenware dealers in Jedburgh.

The 1871 census may not be him. There is a chap aged 66 in Longtown living with his granddaughter Ann Tait. There is no occupation to give a connection.

Iíve found a parish record for Mary Robinson Young, who sadly died in 1845. It states her mother as Jane. So at least it gives a clue for sideways searches for a Jane Anderson.

EditÖ just found him and Jane in Annan in 1861, High St, occupation China Dealer.

YYYYAAAAYYY Brickwalls can fall!

Jane Young died in Annan a few years later in 1863. I finally have Elizabeth Andersonís maiden name! WILLIAMSON

Happy days!

Possibly a version of Sooey.
I looked through this list for townlands in Sligo that started with "S" and came to the same conclusion: "Sooey"

Thank you oldohiohome and Dublin1850. Iíll look around the page to see if there are any ďooĒ to compare.
