WILSON WALES/MATILDA WOODHALL
« on: Wednesday 15 September 10 14:25 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I hope you can help!
I am trying to find any information about Wilson Wales born 1917 Gateshead died 1975, Matilda Woodhall born 1922 Sunderland died 1982. They married 1943 and lived in the Old Fold area of Gateshead. As far as I know Matilda never had contact with her family after her marriage to Wilson but don't know why?? Her mother s maiden name was Anderson.
 Many Thanks
Andrea

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

A good starting point is a website called freebmd www.freebmd.org.uk where you will find both their birth registrations

However - there are 2 entries for Wilson Wales in 1917 and both in Gateshead

I checked his death reg and your Wilson was b 12.6.1917 so this is the right entry

Births September qtr 1917 
 
Wilson Wales  mothers maiden name Hindmarch  Gateshead  10a 1575

Births September qtr 1922
 
Matilda Woodhall  mmn Anderson  Sunderland  10a 1408

This is the only Woodhall/Anderson I can find that would fit with Matilda's birthyear

Thomas A Woodhall / Margaret Anderson  December qtr 1918   Newcastle-Upon-Tyne  10b  317

Wilson's parents marriage was March qtr 1905 William Gladstone Wales/Isabella Hindmarch Gateshead 10A 1017

Births December qtr 1885
 
William Gladstone Wales    Gateshead  10a 791

There are a couple of possible births for Isabella but I think this may be the likeliest

Births September qtr 1884   
 
Isabella Hindmarch  Gateshead  10a 932

As they married before the 1911 census - you should be able to find them on the free index - see instructions below

USING THE FREE 1911 INDEX TO DETERMINE THE CORRECT HOUSEHOLD

http://www.1911census.co.uk/search/tnaform.aspx

Once you find a possible match - make a note of the county and district in which the person was living

Return to the index and in PERSONAL DETAILS - just put the surname of the family - nothing else

In LOCATION - Select the county and below it - type in the district

In OTHER MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD - show the full name of the person you have found on the index

Click SEARCH

You will have to buy credits to view the full entry which will give you their respective birthplaces - the above instructions will only help to possibly show others of the same name in the same household

This is (I think) the 1891 census entry for Wilson's father - William Wales - Plawsworth Durham

Charles Wales 35 coalminer b somewhere in Essex need to check the 1901
Sarah   30 b Eggmouth Cumberland
William  6 b Durham
Elizabeth 10 b Broom Park
Jonathan Bowerbank 22 brother in law coalminer b Crook
RG12 Piece 4121 Folio 36

There are a couple of possible 1891 entries for Isabella so you would need to establish her parents names first
