On the vision of Britain link , it states Etherley is now part of Teesdale,which is incorrect. It's in the Wear valley . The river is less than a mile away. The river Tees and its upper dale  is probably 10 miles away.

Sorry, I can't see Charles Snr anywhere yet :(


That death might not be 'your' Margaret, HUNTER is quite a common name. Maybe Margaret went to Australia for a holiday or moved there after her marriage :-\


I agree that listening to family members can be confusing, sometimes you find little gold nuggets but other times it's like being at the end of a game of Chinese whispers  ;D

Margaret Barnsdale Hunter nee Rowlat married my great grandfather Robert James Hunter in 1916. Margaret came to the parish as a Church army sister.
In 1939 they were living in Kirk Merrington .
Margaret died in 1948 ( the year after Robert) .
They're both buried in Kirk Merrington, Durham. I cannot find Charles Rowlatts death either.
Could he have gone to Canada or Australia?

I sent you a screen copy of the 1870 US census.  I shows Joseph and Ann, This would indicate Ann was born in 1833.  The census shows up on two consecutive pages. Notice on the last page Joseph's father Edward is listed. In my history it says after His wife Jane Hodgson died Edward came to live in the US.

If you have an account with Family Search.... the Mormon genealogy program..... you can access a lot of info.  It's free, and they don't try to convert you.

I also sent you the marriage licenses  for Ann and Mary that  upset my choice of Edward and Elizabeth as their parents.  I will send you the UK 1841 census.

I'm laughing. Yes, I use family search.

Thank you. I see in the record it says her birth year was 1833, but  I can't see what the age reads in the actual census (just checking there's not a transcription error there)
Looking at the certified copy of the marriage certificate of John (Son of Edward) and Ann Wearmouth (daughter of Thomas) it states they were both minors, so she definitely wasn't born in 1820.
I'm still puzzled by the obituary though. I can't see it too well. Is the year of marriage 184?

Wow, that's an amazing family history that someone spent the time documenting.
The Weardale museum are usually spot on with their ancestry. I'll have a look at all the info later
Seems odd that the obituary would be wrong, but of course Ann's death was before the family history was written in the 1920s.
Still , there's a difference of around 14 years between the 2 date of births and therefore her death age.
Is there a USA census record that gives her age? I can't see them on Ancestry as I don't have the correct subscription level.

Who is Ann Hodgson b1821 Durham England, died 1905  on USA aged 84 from the USA obituary .I can't quite

Are we sure that her maiden name was Wearmouth?

For the benefit of the boards, what I posted in chat:

DRO, with input father Thomas
Baptisms Durham 1813 Benjamin Wearmouth South Street
Baptisms Durham 1813 Margaret Wearmouth South Street
Baptisms Durham 1816 Ann Wearmouth South Street
Baptisms Weardale 1821 Mary Wearmouth 1821 Chester House
Baptisms Weardale 1824 Jonathan Wearmouth St.Johns Chapel
Baptisms Weardale 1826 John Wearmouth 1826 St.Johns Chapel
Baptisms Weardale 1828 Thomas Wearmouth 1828 Chesters
Baptisms Weardale 1831 Richard Wearmouth Chesters
Baptisms Weardale 1836 Jane Wearmouth Broken Way
Baptisms Weardale 1842 Ann Wearmouth Burnfoot
Baptisms Weardale 1842 Joseph Wearmouth Burnfoot
Baptisms Weardale 1842 William Wearmouth Burnfoot
Baptisms Weardale 1844 William Wearmouth Cherrytree House

For further investigation. Currently attempting to find on another source.

~ Edit- mother from Mary onwards is Ann. I don't know about first three christenings.

This riddle  has been going round and round in my head and it's driving me crazy.
The OP states
Ann Wearmouth, born 1834 at St John's Chapel near Stanhope, Durham England.  She married my GG grandfather Joseph Hodgson (born 13 Oct 1830)  on April 6, 1850, at Weardale , St John's Chapel, Durham, Eng. 

1. were people under the age of 18 allowed to marry?
2. On Ehodgson's Ancestry tree there's an obituary dated 1905 for Ann Hodgson in the USA. It states she was 84 when she died, therefore she must have been born around 1820, not 1834
3. The baptism listed above for Ann Wearmouth is 1834, so it can't be  Ann Hodgson died 1905 aged 84
4. The link to the  1941 census record posted is for an Ann Wearmouth aged 7 ie b1834, so neither is that Ann Hodgson died 1905 age 84.

Ha!  I just replaced my kitchen sink, disposal and faucet....  replaced my 48 year old one.   Now i just took out my old tub shower combination, and will put in a 3x6 foot shower with 4 inch stepover.  Then replace carpet with tile. 

But genealogy is fun and relaxing.  Imagining what my weardale ancestors did back in the 17 and 1800's.  Also what the countryside looked like.  I joined two Facebook weardale sites.

DIY is fun- sometimes

You will see me in the 2 Weardale Facebook groups ( Old Weardale photos and Weardale family history). Also I love Weardale, but to a lesser degree. I'm Susan Hall on Facebook. Most of my posts are about the Elliott's and Stobbs'.
Weardale is beautiful. Have you looked on Google maps Street view for Broken Way and Burnfoot St John's Chapel ( Bishop Auckland)?

I notice on your Ancestry tree that the ages on the 1841 and 1851 census' don't match with the birth year of 1796 for Ann Lowes. They do match the year of baptism . Wondering where you got the year of birth from? I can't view the select baptism source record as I only have the basic membership. Does that give her birth year?
