The placename seems to be very clearly Tarry, which is just to the north of Eglingham.

Hiya,
I think the place reads Tarry. There was a Tarry colliery in Eglingham, so that would tie in with the mining occupation.
Have a look at this website
www.keystothepast.info/durhamcc/k2p.nsf/k2psettlementlist?readform&letter=E
Scroll down to Eglingham, click on that name and it will take you to a history of Eglingham. I think it mentions Tarry in the write up. I think you can click on the name 'Tarry', and then it should take you to a page with an option to view a map. If you click that link it will open another window with the map. You should be able to then choose to view a historical version of that map, and you get a choice of year ranges.
I hope it helps!

This looks like William Dunn & family in 1871 (possibly)

Northumberland/Whittingham
RG10/5193 Fol 43, page 14

Eslington H Hill

William (50) Farm labourer - Ireland
Bridget (55) Labourers wife - Ireland
Margaret -daughter (15) born Edlingham
William -son (14) born Edlingham
Robt -son (10) born Eglingham
Margt -daughter(7) born Alnwick *

and lodging with them? --- Errel Douglas 50 - born Ireland.

(what with all the Eslington, Edlingham and Eglingham I'm getting a headache!)

* definitely looks like Margt on census although she is right age for Mary?  I may be wrong (quite usually am) but I think I read somewhere that the name Mary Margaret was considered a different name to Mary.........

I think I need to find them in 1861 if I can.

Thanks everyone, although I perhaps should've said it was in Northumberland  :-X

Helen, I think you're on the right track as the family lore suggests Mary came from Ireland - she didn't obviously but the family would appear to have done so.

Just received this marriage certificate today and I'm a bit puzzled as to why the Bride's father's details are blank - any ideas? I don't know who he was, I was hoping the certificate would give me a clue!

Whilst I'm at it -
Is John Douglas' father William? (bit difficult to read)
What is the word before Eglingham for John's place of residence?


Hello,
No-one seems to have answered your first question. The usual reason why the father's  part is left blank is because the person was illegitimate.

Yours

No father's shown probably because the father was unknown or her mother did not want to divulge his name.
