Strange to think we may be related in some small way!

I don't know if I am on the right track but I have Jane's parents to be Andrew and Elizabeth, living in Leeds, both were born in Ireland. 

As for Robert Templeton I have him married to Mary Ethel Currie with the following children:

Jean b1913 Q2 Newcastle
David b 1915 Q2 Newcastle
John b1917 Q1 Newcastle
Mary E b1920 Q4 Newcastle
William b1926 Q3 Newcastle
Doris 1928 Q1 Newcastle

I think their father Samuel Templeton died in 1887 in the Newcastle and mother Jane idied n 1918 in Newcastle.  Jane also ran a general dealers shop in Newcastle.

I do live in the UK but it's not easy to find the information from here either!

Caroline, the bods mentioned are Robert's family but there was a Norman born first.  Mary-Jane ran the shop for some time I think.   I do not think that she married.  I got the Mack connection from the certificate that I mentioned (date) but paid for it and am not sure if it is o.k.  Have you found any S. African connections?  I must start on the Currie side of things but am hopeless and much I have is just memories of people chatting.   B.  Did William move on and leave M.J. with the shop?

Hi B

I don't have any details of Robert's marriage unfortunately, just having looked at the ancestry site, I suspected he was the Robert Templeton who had married Mary Ethel Currie and had the children we mentioned.  Do you have any idea when and where Robert died?

I haven't found any South African connections apart from that Samuel b1863 went over there I guess to do some labouring, and he died at Port Elizabeth in 1899.

William Templeton married Elizabeth Grace Jane Armstrong in Newcastle in 1892 and they moved across to Newbiggin by the Sea in Northumberland, where William was a coal miner.

Kind regards

Caroline

Caroline, thank you for trying.  I would think that Robert died in 1929/30 address 19,Noble Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne.  How much extended family have you found during all this?     B.

Caroline, last question: what was the surname of Andrew, Jane's father - born in Ireland?  It is funny that all of this started with me spending 5mins fiddling with the laptop.  I'm Robert's grandchild.  Please let me know how you get on.  B.
