Durham Completed Look up Requests / Census lookup 1851 Gateshead
« on: Monday 02 August 04 13:10 BST (UK)  »
Looking for a census lookup of 6 Cannon St, Gateshead. My ggrandfather Michael Nicholson was 2 years old at the time, but nothing known of parents or siblings. If possible, could the same address be checked for 1841 and 1861? Michael became a hairdresser, so his father might have been likewise.


Am looking for Daniel & Mary Sullivan - he was a greengrocer apparently - resident in Marylebone in 1841. Their children included Daniel, born 1818, Mary Ann, born 1824 and John, born 1827. The children were all baptised at St Mary, St Marylebone if that is any help.

Many thanks

Thanks for the thoughts. Somehow, I can't see Cadman Cadman or Cropley Cropley being literate, as they both come from an 18th Century fenland farming community, let alone compose classical poetry. It is entirely possible I suppose that this is a personal construct of the parish priest, not used elsewhere

Does anyone know what the above terms mean when given in a baptismal register? Literally, the latin means son (or daughter) of the earth, but is this an 18th Century euphamism for an illegitimate child? I am not convinced that this is the case, because in the same register for the same period, illegitimate children are recorded as such (with the name of the father recorded, a trend which stopped in the early 19th Century).

In the 3 or 4 cases where I have seen it, boys were given their surnames as Christian names and at least one survived to marry, which kills another theory that the entries were for sickly babies that died in infancy.

This question comes out of curiosity rather than an urgent need to interpret a record in my own family tree, but any help most welcome nevertheless.

Can anyone help locate an entry in 1841 census for Bowden (Altrincham) for John & Harriet Berry? I haven't managed to trace any siblings to date for my gg grandfather Hugh (son of John & Harriet) born 1840.

Many thanks

If you are researching any of the following surnames, I'd love to hear from you:

Wilkinson - Allerton
Rawnsley - Allerton
Kershaw - Thornton, Bingley (late 18th Century)
Shaw - a bit elusive, these Shaws, they were in Thornton in 1830s, but may have originated in Sowerby Bridge

Am looking for Daniel & Mary Sullivan of Marylebone. I know their children were baptised at St Mary's Marylebone and by 1841 they had at least 3 (Daniel aged 22, Mary and John). I believe Daniel was a greengrocer and was probably born in Ireland. Can anybody help?

Many thanks
