Northumberland / Re: Looking for a marriage and identity

Hi

I'm pretty sure that this is her - she named a son, Alexander (and Benjamin), and is missing from the family in 1871, as she had married William Johnson in 1869.

Thanks to all for looking - most appreciated!

Northumberland / Looking for a marriage and identity
« on: Wednesday 22 May 24 14:27 BST (UK)  »
Hi

I'm looking for a marriage between a William Johnson, baptised in South Shields on the 4th December 1845, father William and mother, Isabella Gibson.

He may have married his wife, Elizabeth, around 1870.
Elizabeth had been born in Holywell, Northumberland around 1852/1853


The 1871 census finds the pair living in Pittingdon, Durham, with a son, William, who had been born in Backworth, Northumberland during the December quarter of 1870 (mother's maiden name 'Turner')
The only marriage I can find is one that took place in Sunderland on the 29th March 1871 (William Johnson and Elizabeth Turner, but it looks as though her former name was Hodgson).

Another son, Benjamin was born in Washington, Durham during the March quarter of 1873, Matthew, was born during the June quarter of 1875, and Sarah was born in Percy Main, Northumberland during the June quarter of 1878 (all mother's maiden names given as 'Turner')
The 1881 census - living in Whitley, Tynemouth
Thomas was born during the June quarter of 1881, Alexander, was born during the December quarter of 1884, and Benjamin, was born during the June quarter of 1889 (all mother's maiden name given as 'Turner')
The 1891 census - living in Cowpen, Tynemouth
The 1901 census - living in Bebside Furnace, Horton, Tynemouth
Elizabeth dies prior to 1911

From the birth registrations of all their children, it would seem as though Elizabeth's maiden name was Turner...can anybody confirm or trace her?
Thanks

Daughter, Jane Middlehurst (Nee Unsworth), was living in 3 Palmer Street in 1871 - the the circle has definitely been closed!

Thanks!!

Hi

The family did have links to Lancashire!  William's daughter, Jane, married James Middlehurst, who came from that area!
Their son, Emmanuel Thomas, was born in St Helens, Lancashire before the family returned to Sunderland!

It's 25th May - no idea where he could be in 1851 and 1861.
His daughter, Jane, moved around the country with her husband James Middlehurst, between 185O and 1861, and his son, John, is in London in 1851.

So, he's abit of a mystery

James and Jane were in Scotland in 1851, and had travelled around before 1861, when they were back in Sunderland at the time of the census.
They remained in Sunderland, James dying there in 1871
