Durham / Easington District
« on: Thursday 08 March 12 09:43 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone,

I am hoping that you wonderful people will be able to help me with the electoral roll for Hesleden in 1930.

I am looking to find out who my great grandfather, Thomas Johnson (no middle name), was living with in Front Street, Hesleden at that time. Hopefully it will be able confirm his mother's name. His father had already past away by then (according to his marriage certificate to Lilian Thompson 1930).

I am also looking to find out the first name of a lady that he is meant to have lived with in Monk Hesleden later in his life. The lady's surname was Nattress or Nattrass. This would have been in the late 1950's or early 1960's. I am pretty certain that they did not marry, because, after much searching, I have found no record of a marriage between a Thomas Johnson and Nattress/Nattrass.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello,

I hope someone can help me. I used to have a copy of an 1861 Scottish Census, which included my 3x great grandfather, his wife, and two of his children. Now it has disappeared from my computer.

1861 Scottish Census, Parish: Vessels; ED: Sea Nymph; Page: 12; Line: 1; Roll: CSSCT1861_150.

Your help will be gratefully appreciated.

Durham / What happened to my great grandfather, Thomas Johnson?
« on: Tuesday 28 February 12 11:47 GMT (UK)  »
 ???

Hello,

I am hoping that someone out there will be able to tell me what happened to my great grandfather Thomas Johnson.

Unfortunately I never met him. The only information that I know about him is: -

Born: 13th April 1901 in the sub-district of Wingate, Easington in County Durham

He married Lilian Thompson at the Registary Office in the district of Easington in the county of Durham.24th April 1930.
Thomas Johnson aged 28 years, Bachelor, Blacksmith's labourer at colliery, Resident at Front Street, Hesledon, father's name George Johnson (Deceased) Coal Miner.

Three Children:


Address: 24 Apr 1930 in Hesledon, Durham, England; Front Street, Hesledon, County Durham, England
Address: 1933 in Hartlepool, Durham, England; (Possibly) 16 Keswick Street, West Hartlepool.

I am told by my father that at some point Thomas and Lillian split up and Thomas moved to Monk Hesleden with a lady called Nattrass who had two sons called Thomas and James Nattrass.
Thomas worked at the colleries

I would love to find out what happened to him to gain some closure and peace of mind.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kent / Stuck, on my 4x ggrandfather from Deal, Kent
« on: Sunday 19 February 12 22:04 GMT (UK)  »
Help!

I've hit a brick wall with my 4x ggrandfather William Dawkins.

He was employed and recorded in the 1861 census as a a Master Mariner onboard the Sea Nymph in Greenock East, Renfrewshire, Scotland.

The census says that he was born circa 1824 in Deal, Kent.

When he was 23, he married Eliza Laybourn on 18 Dec 1847 in Hartlepool, Durham, England. Father's name - George Dawkins, Occupation of father - Farmer (from Williams marriage certificate).

He died 22 Jan 1863 in At sea (onboard The Cimbria)

My problem is, I cannot find/confirm any record of his birth, his mother, his father's birth/marriage/death or any records prior to his wedding in 1847.

Any help from you will be gratefully appreciated.

Durham / Died at sea - Help please
« on: Saturday 10 December 11 16:17 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

Can someone advice me where I should look next.

I have ancestor, William Dawkins born circa 1824 who was from Hartlepool, Durham, that was a Master Marina who died at sea on or about  22nd January 1863. This information I got from the National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations),1861-1941 record for William Dawkins. In the 1861 census he was aboard the Sea Nymph in Renfrewshire, Scotland.

What I would like to find out is information about his death, but I cannot find his record in the death register. Does anyone know how I will find it, or anything like newspaper articles about it, any information about his death and the ship that he was on etc? Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Travelling People / Seaton Carew 1939 Tiplady/Daley
« on: Sunday 17 October 10 23:17 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

Can you help me find out information about a group of travellers that may have settled in Seaton Carew, Hartlepool, Durham in 1939.

My grandfather, John William Tiplady, born 1926 in Pontefract Yorkshire and died 2010 in Hartlepool Cleveland, was one of them, and he was aged 13 at the time.

He settled there with his family, including:-
His father - John William Tiplady, born 1890 in Luton Bedfordshire, and died 1943 in West Hartlepool Durham.
His mother - Margaret Daley, born 1903 in Maltby, Yorkshire, England, and died 1995 Hartlepool Cleveland.

and his brothers:-
Moderator Comment:  Names removed as these people may still be living.
I would like to know more about that group of travellers so that I can find out more about my great grandfather JW Tiplady born 1890. I would like to know why he joined that community because his family were not travellers.

Is it because Margaret Daley was a traveller, and he fell in love with her joined the community to be with her? (Ahh, very romantic, lol)

It will also help me to understand how they lived.

I am not sure but, they may have been fairground travellers.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

England / R.A.O.B, The Buffs or Buffaloes
« on: Wednesday 15 September 10 11:24 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I am hoping that someone out there will be able to help me with a photo that has been found amongst my grandfathers belonging.

My Grandfather, John William Tiplady of Hartlepool, recently passed away and many of his documents, photo, and medals, etc have been passed onto me because that is what he wanted. Amongst them is this black and white photograph. He was a member of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (R.A.O.B. or The Buff) Royal Jubilee Lodge No.165 and the Elwick Lodge No.8167, both were in the South Durham Province.

I believe that this picture must have been taken at one of there annual general meetings (or something like that) at their head quarters or some other lodge.

Any help with this will be gratefully appreciated.

Paul
