Durham Completed Look up Requests / Re: 1841 - Dowell/Robson/Robinson
« on: Sunday 18 September 05 22:22 BST (UK)  »

I don't know if this will help but I found a baptism at St. Michael & All Angels church Houghton-le-Spring on 25 Oct 1829  for a Mary Ann Robson, daughter of James & Mary abode Easington Lane.

Also at the same church baptism 20 Jan 1831 Mary Ann Robson, daughter of George & Ann, abode Easington Lane.

Also at the same church baptism 3 Jul 1831 Mary Ann Robson, daughter of George & Ann, abode Easington Lane. (Um...confused? Good! So am I  ;D)

1841 Census, Houghton le Spring District
Hetton-le-Hole, Lyons

George Robson, 40, Coal Miner
Barbara Robson, 45
Mary Ann Robson, 12
George Robson, 10
Joseph Robson, 8
John Robson, 3

1851 Census, Easington District
Haswell 1851 Census, South Hetton

Thomas Adamson, Head, married, 24, Coal Miner, born Low Flats, Durham
Martha Adamson, Wife, married, 24, born Hebron [Hebburn?], Durham
Mary Ann Dowell, Visitor, 22, born Jarrow, Durham

1841 Census, Lanchester District

George Robinson, 30, Coal Miner
Mary Robinson, 30
Mary Ann Robinson, 12
George Robinson, 10

I know none of this answers your question about which Mary Ann your James married, but I had a few credits to use up at so thought I'd see what I could find.

Hopefully when you discover which one he married something out of this lot will be a help  ;D

Good luck

I take it the comment "Thanks to intense lobbying" on Nervousnigel's page at the above link had nothing to do with you Paul E ??  ;D ;D ;D


Somerset Completed Lookup Requests / Re: 1841 - Featherstone in Wiveliscombe
« on: Sunday 18 September 05 20:51 BST (UK)  »
Hi Sue,

Thanks for the details  :)

Men of a suitable age ..... anything from about 12 to 99 then  ;D ;D

The illegitimate child was born in 1810 so Edward and John (age 45) are the only two who might have been just about old enough to be the father in question.

But then again it could have been one of their fathers seducing the young and innocent (??) maiden from my family!!

Time will tell (hopefully!)

Thanks again

Tabitha :)

Somerset Completed Lookup Requests / *COMPLETED *1841 - Featherstone in Wiveliscombe
« on: Saturday 17 September 05 22:54 BST (UK)  »

This is a bit of a cheeky request but as the saying goes "if you don't ask you don't get"  ;D

I'm grasping at straws and trying to see if I can work out who might be a "missing" father to one of my Rockett children from Wiveliscombe.

If possible could someone please look up anyone using the surname Featherstone in Wiveliscombe on the 1841 census?

Thank you very much.

Tabitha  :)

Armed Forces / Re: What Regiment

This is more of a guess going by the base of the badge but could it be Royal Artillery?

To see the badge in full have a look at
and see what you think.

The Common Room / Re: Can we help keep the Historical Directories project. going
« on: Friday 16 September 05 21:05 BST (UK)  »
I've just visited Historical Directories and read their "news" page (I don't normally read it and just dive in to find what I'm looking for ::))

Anyway what I'm getting round to saying is that the funding for the site came to an end on 31 0ct 2004 and no new directories have been added since Jan 2005. The University advise that the site will be available for the next 3 years.

I can find no mention of whether the university would like to continue the project or indeed if they are trying to get further funding.

Despite all of that, I've sent them a feedback email to say thankyou and that I hope further funding will be made available and that they (or someone else!) will continue adding to this great resource  ;D

I agree that Historical Directories is a brilliant resource for us and it would be a shame if it wasn't able to be added to due to lack of funds.

Maybe if a few more people wrote to the University to express their thanks for the work done and apreciation of the site it may help them gain some additional funding in the future ???
