Hi,
I know what you mean about the families marrying into each other. My grandfather was William Swales from kirby Moorside who married Margaret Adams.  Keep up the good work with your research, great to hear from you all,
Jan

Hi Tracey

I come down James Swales 1816 Kirkbymoorside line, he was the brother of Jeremiah 1814.  If you go onto familysearch you will find the Swales back to the 1600s in batch P012131.   You will also find the Swales in Crayke are connected to the Swales in Kilburn.   

There are a number of Trees on A....try that have these families in them.  If your not confused when you start you certainly will be when you finish.  My mother told me this intermarrying carried on into the 1900s.  Her grandmother was Christiana Swales born Pickering 1871.  In the 1891 census she is described as a hawker.

Good luck with your research.

Hi everyone,

My ggggrandparents were Alexander Stephenson 1821 Rievaulx yorkshire and Mary Stewart 1825 Gateshead Durham.   Mary Stewart's parents were Hugh Stewart and Mary Patterson born 1801 Gateshead,  Mary Patterson's parents were Thomas Patterson b. 1769 Gateshead and Isabella Cunningham.  Have hit a brick wall with Isabella Cunningham and can't find a marriage for her either on IGI.   

Thought maybe someone who is researching these families may be able to help.

Thanks Val

Hi EML,

That's very interesting.   Have had a look at all you put and think we have a connection.  Christiana Stephenson born abt 1809, baptised Pickering 1812.  Think she is the sister of Alexander Stephenson born 1822 Reivaulx.  He doesn't come up on IGI for his birth, but I have his marriage certificate and father is Edward. 

Was wondering if you have access to 1891 census.  If so, you will see your Richard and Elizabeth and their children in Guisborough.  Also you will see a lot of other Swales and Stephensons.  You will note James Harker and his wife Christiana (nee Swales born 1871 Pickering)  They are my great grandparents.   Think your great grandfather Zachariah, could be my mother's uncle Zac.

Would be interested in your thoughts on this.
