On Ancestry I searched for Clarke in Northumberland born 1769 father William and mother Jane.

Found on Family Search
William Watson Clerk s of William and Jane Clerk
Bn 15 August 1884
Bap 26 Sept 1884 at United Cheviot St Non Conformist Wooler

Robert son of William and Jane
Bn 15 Aug 1786
Bap 10 Sept 1786 at Wooler West Chapel

Thomas son of William and Jane
Bn 23 Oct 1788
Bap 19 Nov 1788 at Glanton NC could this beGranton

Anne Clarke
Bn 1 Feb 1886
Bap 13 Feb 1786 Granton NC

This Anne Clark is unlikely to be a sibling of the William and Jane Clarke  baptising children at Wooler as the gap between Anne and Robert seems rather unlikely however she could be a sibling of the Thomas baptised in Glanton or Granton above.

Could there be 2 Williams and Jane Clarke families in the area?

Itís a large gap with no other baptisms.

Presbyterian Chapels were non conformist chapels. They joined with the Congregational chapels in 1972 to form the United Reform Church.

Marriage to be legal would have had to be in the Established Church ie Church of England until 1837.

The above was on Ancestry but there may be more available on Family Search.

There is a private family tree onAncestry that mentions Edward, perhaps they know where he was buried? Also I wondered where the parents married if it was a church marriage that would perhaps give an indication on the denomination of the church where Edward is buried.

She is shown as Elizabeth Pekin(s)at marriage on some sites and also as Sarah Peakings in the Banns register. Might be worth trying these variations.

Just a thought, if Charles was so badly injured in the evacuation from Dunkirk which took place in 1940 wouldnít he have been discharged by 1944?

My great uncle was also with the Liverpool Police and he received a couple of awards from the Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society. I canít remember how I found the records it could have been at Liverpool Archives or at the Maritime museum.

I think itís an abbreviated first name, then the initial A, then Coutts

My mother always wrote capital A as in this signature.

The girls were all baptised on 9 October 1884 at Weaverham Parish Church. Only their motherís name was given and the address as Mere Brow. No occupation for Annie.
