Hi Ella,

Thought that you might like to see an image of what the houses in Duke Street looked like. One of my wife's ancestors lived in 11 Duke Street in the late 1890's early 1900's. We were lucky to find this image of No 11 just before demolishment.

The 1891 Census shows TWEDDELL Street as being between Frances Street and Cleveland Street. The Census records households as:

Frances Street
Tweddell Street
Northwell Street
Chapman Street
Cleveland Street

The attached image (courtesy of National Library of Scotland) shows the area.

I believe that the 1921 Census will be published on the Find My Past website in 2022. I also believe that it will be an additional cost to view it over and above the normal FindMyPast subscription.

The birth of a James Burns was registered in the June Qtr 1899 in the Chester le Street district of Durham (Washington / Usworth is part of this district). He married an Ann E Ward in the March Qtr of 1920. The marriage was in the Chester le Street district. James Burns died in 1932, March Qtr. His widow was living in Bradford when the 1939 National Register was taken. There is a birth registered in the Chester le Street district for the September Qtr 1921 - name of Vera G Burns, mother's maiden name of Ward.

A search of the 1939 National Register (taken in September 1939) for a James Burns living in the Washington district of County Durham (Usworth comes under Washington) has failed to find a James Burns in his 30's.

There were only three James Burns living in the Washington UDC district at that time, they are:

James Burns living at 2 Ash Street, Washington. Date of Birth 24/4/1873. Unmarried, working as a Night watchman.

James Burns living at 11 Tees Terrace, Washington. Date of Birth 14/4/1882. Married, working as a Council road worker. His wife is shown as Mary Burns, Date of Birth 6/11/1885. No other family listed.

James Burns, living at 63 Pattinson Town, Washington. Date of Birth 7/1/1925. Unmarried, working as an Apprentice Joiner. Living with his parents and siblings. Details: Father Joseph F Burns, Date of Birth 12/10/1900 Mother Jane Burns, Date of Birth 3/7/1901. Siblings: Joseph, Date of Birth 6/1/1926; Michael L, Date of Birth 7/11/1929; Peter, Date of Birth 30/11/1936

I am trying to find an image (hopefully not a modern one) of Moortown House near to the Moortown hamlet in the South Kelsey area. Anyone?? (I have Googled but came up empty handed)
