Berwickshire / Happer / Hopper
« on: Friday 14 June 13 20:40 BST (UK)  »
trying to trace the siblings of Thomas Hopper born Borthwick, Edinburghshire 29th Oct 1801, the son of James Hopper, my 3x Gr Gr Father and Janet(?), born Eccles in Berwickshire 8th May 1785.
the only other is a brother Robert Hopper,  who I believe married a Margaret Patterson.

Thomas marries Jean/Jane Crow, born Greenlaw Feb 1804 on 23 May 1824 in Ayton, and died 28th July 1879 in Greenlaw.
Jean/ Jane Crow died in Edinburgh 15th June 1892 at the home of her daughter Jean WOOD.
I am struggling with the various different names etc.
They had 3 sons and 6 daughters (at Least) from 1824 till 1850. there may be others that were born and died between censuses.

Northumberland / CROW FAMILY
« on: Friday 02 December 11 18:20 GMT (UK)  »
Are there any relatives out there or anyone with knowledge of the Crow Family from Seaton Delaval area from around the 1891 census?

My paternal grandmother, Jane Hopper Gibson's birth was registered in Blyth, Tynemouth in 1877 but was orphaned at the beginning of 1891. I have traced a Jane H  Gibson, as a visitor,  to 1891 census living at 17 Brick Row, Seaton Delaval, with Ralph Phillips, age 40, his wife Eleanor age 36 and their 3 children Margery (5) James (3) & Margaret (1) together with Emily Phillips age 16, a domestic.
I also have a Marriage in 1876 for Ralph and Eleanor Simpson CROW. Jane Gibson's Mother was Mary Hopper and her mother was Jane CROW. So I am linking Eleanor Crow with Jane Crow?
Is that too big an assumption?
Any help would be appreciated.
