Family History Beginners Board / Coray, Cory or Richwood
« on: Wednesday 30 August 06 19:28 BST (UK)  »
I have a problem in that I cannot find any details of my great grandmother. I have her marriage cert  of 1876, married Richard William Galey 30th Dec 1876. Her name was shown as Alice Coray. She is shown on the 1901 census as 1901 census as Alice Galey from London Middlesex. Her marriage cert does not give details of parents. The 1881 census shows her married living in Ford Durham however on the same census it shows a William Richwood as Richard Galeys Brother in law, born Middlesex. It must be her brother but why is she called Coray on her marriage cert. I have checked an Alice Richwood on the 1861 census and she was shown born to the same parents as William. Unfortunately there my trail stops I cannot find her as Richwood anywhere. Can anyone help.  Thanks but very frustrated!

Hi can anyone help me? I am trying to trace information about my GG grandfather Robert Forster born in Tanfield Durham in 1826.
I am trying to trace his birth certificate marriage details etc and am getting nowhere. I know he had four children two girls Dorothy 1856 and Mary 1854 born in Birtley. he also had two sons Robert and Thomas. Robert was born 1863 and Thomas ( my great grandfather) was born 1861 Birtley. I have no details of his marriage. I believe his wife died  soon after the youngest child was born. Can anyone help.
