Hi Tom,

My husband is descended from John and Alice's son, George who married Eleanor Proud. I have found 8 children - Christiana, Joseph, John, George, Eleanor, William, Anthony (my husband's greatx2 grandfather), Mary Ada and Hannah.

Regards,

Patricia

Anthony was the cousin of my great great great grandfather Mathew Mole (born Mohl) who went to lived in Newcastle. Anthony owned a flourishing drapery business and was the money side of the family, it seems. I could do some further work for you when I can. I know that they kept contact because in one of the censuses Anthony's daughter/granddaughter is staying at John Mole's house (Matthew's son).

As I said, I need to do some more work on this but I'm a bit tied up with work ATM. I'll get back to you when I have something.

BTW where do you live? Is it Newcastle? That's where most of the Moles ended up. My end of the Mole family lived alongside the Ouseburn Valley in Byker.

I made a mistake there. Anthony was the cousin of my great great grandfather John Mole/Mould. Matthew and George were brothers and the sons of John Mohl, listed as a "sword puller" and his wife Alice Mawson who lived and died in Shotley Bridge.

I've written a storyline of the Mohl/Mole family and the part leading up to the move to Newcastle may interest you.

Hi Tom,

George (son of John Mole and Alice Mawson) seemed to move around the North East. He was married in Muggleswick, had children baptised/born in Medomsley, Shotley, Consett and Merrington; was in Haswell for the 1841 census and died in Castle Eden Colliery. George's son Anthony, who became a blacksmith, was living in Hawthorn when he married at Easington in 1860. He died in Ludworth. His daughter, Jane, my husband's great-grandmother, was born in Kelloe and also moved around but died in Thornley near Kelloe which is where my husband grew up, although we now live near Cambridge.

Regards,

Patricia

Has anyone seen a sword by the Ohlig family from Shotley Bridge?

I really ought to dig up all the photos i took of the Ohlig graves in the local cemetary of the village.

Adam Oley(Ohlig) 1656–1726 was my 7th Great Grandfather on my dad's mums side.

Have you tried the Royal Armouries in Leeds?  I was looking for a Mole sword.. and found one there after asking an assistant.  I've seen the Ohlig (Oley)name mentioned when looking up Mole swords on line.
