The Common Room / A quick Question.
« on: Tuesday 09 July 19 23:06 BST (UK)  »
I have twins in my family Born 27/9/1912  Registered 17/10/1912 only one baptized 13/12/1912. Both born in Wales.
Only one twin in family photo's taken in Wales.
When they came to NZ in 1921 only one twin came. Only one twin mentioned on headstone of Mum (1924 NZ).
If i ordered the full birth certificate of the missing twin would this tell me if he was adopted?
At this stage all i need is a yes or no to my question. This will either be a dead end or a new beginning.
Many Thanks for your time


Durham / Joseph Cawthorn 1825 - 1885
« on: Saturday 25 May 19 03:03 BST (UK)  »
In my quest to find my Mary Cawthone, (4th wife of my great grandfather, Edwin Stonehouse ) I am gathering quite a tree on her family. Her father Robert was a Coal Miner. His brother Joseph was also a Coal Miner. I stumbled across a grave on find a grave for Joseph Cawthorne. Now trying to find out about the mine and his death.
What i Know;
 Joseph Cawthorne b 1825 in Winlaton, Gateshead, Durham. Son of William Cawthorn and Mary Pearson.
I believe he married a Hannah Dent. They had about 10 children that i can find. William 1849, Robert 1850, Margaret 1857, Anne 1859, Alice J 1861, John 1864, Isabella 1866, Joseph 1868, Hannah 1869 and Ellen 1872.
In 1871 and 1881 i have him living in Medomsley (1871/4960/0135 and RG11/4950/25 ) on the Family search site.
His Son Robert (1850) married Hannah Eliza Kirsop on 22 Aug 1874 in Lanchester.
The next item on F.S. was his Death.His Headstone is on Find a Grave and reads in part;
Joseph Cawthorne the beloved Husband of Hannah Cawthorne, who was Killed by a fall of Stone in The Derwent Colliery, On Wednesday April 8th 1885 aged 60 years.
It goes on to mention his wife's death also in 1899. They are buried together in St Mary Magdalene Church yard.
Would there have been an inquest and death notice ?
I see on the Durham Mining Museum site an other Cawthorne died (Joseph William ) 1933 in similar circumstance.

Any help with news paper reports etc would be most welcome.

Would like to write a letter to my Mum's Cousin in the hope that she may have Family information on her family which would help my brick wall.
As she was born in 1932 i am  assuming she is still alive.
My Mum passed in 2009 and i believe this is the last contact she has had with my family here in New Zealand. I have been through all my mum's paper's and can not find an address.
Hoping someone can find an address for her and her son.
I believe she lived in Cheshire.
If anyone can help i will P.M. the names
Thanking you in advance.
