Hi Jane

I'm a bit confused. Is your Isabella who 'married' William, a different person to the one married to Ambrose Burnside?

I looked on the 1881 census and there is an Ambrose Burnside aged 57 in Bishop Auckland. Given as unmarried, trader of small wares b Durham city. He is a visitor in a house of multiple occupation, so probably a lodging house.

You never know, establishing what became of Ambrose and Isabella, may provide a clue.

Thanks for your help

Juie

Hi Jane We Meet Again,
How`s your Cunninghams, oops!
Last Conversation was  Me "Isabella was in Linthorpe with her family in1881 census"
You" No! They were in Vinegar Hill"
Result i heard no more.
How about, Was she in both, if the census were at different times!!!
Her son Ambrose 1860 got married in Billingham that year, before going back to Belmont.
                            Kind regards Fred

Hi All,
 An old contact related to Isabella Burnside nee Gordon reckoned the Ambrose 1881 B/A was indeed the late Ambrose. I have just found, thanks to Gary that there was a Ann 1822 Sadberge dau. of Edward and Sarah. i have  her marrying Alexander Gordon, i believe Isabellas brother.
i will check this out.
                                 Fred

Hi Fred,
           On Isabellas death certificate her father was Alexander,so I imagine one of her brothers would be Alexander,

Hi All,
I think I've stirred up a hornets nest  :-[

I don't think Isabella married to William Cunningham is the same as Isabella that was married to Ambrose Burnside with children, Elizabeth '54, Sarah '59, Ambrose '60 and Edward 65.

Ambrose and Isabella with children where in Durham in '71 and Isabella with children in Middlesborough in '81. So it is unlikely that she is the same Isabella that is in Glasgow in '81 with William.

Unless.....you are right Fred....a bit close though...sorry I didn't get back to you, I'll look up the thread and see what I was doing, middle age and all that, memory like a goldfish.

I saw the entry for Ambrose you mentioned Julie, will follow him up to see if there is any connection. I'm now looking for any other Ambrose and Isabella combinations to see if they fit with William's Isabella, no luck so far so will look up tomorrow with fresh eyes  ::)

Hello all,
I've been on the other thread re Mary Smith so please forgive any errors and bear with me  ;)

As you know we are looking for Mary/Smith/ possibly Burnside whose witnesses at marriage were Ambrose and Isabella Burnside(s) who are assumed to be the ones who married in 1849 (Gordon). I am not disputing this by the way.
However, there is also a marriage in 1842 for an Ambrose Burnsides in Stockton - does anyone know who this is and who he married?
Apologies in advance if he is already mentioned and I have overlooked him.

Hello Heywood

See also this thread
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,411479.60.html

There appear to be 2 Ambrose Burnsides of very similar age,

The whole Burnside thing is quite confusing!
