Thanks Trish,

 The family is a mystery,  I will get my sister in law to get it as it is her family and she lives in the UK.

Many thanks


Northumberland Lookup Requests / John William Irving any info
« on: Thursday 10 July 14 12:42 BST (UK)  »
I am having trouble finding John William Irving before 1911,   I have found John William aged 36 in the 1911 Census with his wife Ellen aged 32 and son John Lawrence aged 3 6/12 and daughter Alice Eleanor aged 2 6/12  but cannot find John William with his parents anywhere.  On the 1911 census it shows he was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

I am in Australia so would appreciate any help with any info at all, census,  marriage etc.

Best Regards

Many thanks janfurness, sgs28, trish1120, stan, 

Good leads for me to follow up on. I did have Joseph Ritchie aged 40 Sept 1893 death as on his daughter Dorothy (Dora) Ritchie's marriage certificate he was deceased.

Stan....I did think George Wilson Ritchie could have been serving in the services,  now to go and search.

janfurness,  I think below is the family I have been looking for,  thank you so much.

I have found a marriage between George W Ritchie and Margaret (Not Margate!)  Maconochie Newcastle On Tyne December 1910. The record is on FreeBMD
The couple had two children-Margaret -June 1914 and Georgina W- Dec 1916
George Wilson Ritchie's birth was registered Sept 1877.

Once again thank you all so much for the help you have given me.

Best Regards

Could SKS  do a lookup on the  1891 & 1901 Census for a George Wilson Ritchie born about 1877 Northumberland....I think it could have been Newcastle Upon Tyne.   His parents were Joseph Ritchie b. about 1852....Elizabeth nee Wilson b. about 1855.

I think I found him in 1911 Census   aged 32  living with his wife Margate or  Margaret  at his brother in laws place at 304 Sheilds Rd  Newcastle upon Tyne.

Appreciate any help,  thanking you in advance.

Kind Regards
