Hi

they had 4 children Sarah Isabella Alexander

Who was the fourth child and when were they all born

Do you have a copy of their marriage cert showing James' fathers name and occupation?

Marriages June qtr 1857
James Patton         Alnwick    10b   384    
Isabella Rogerson   

EDIT

Not sure that is the correct marriage as 1861/1871 for Alnwick does not show children mentioned in post and shows James as b Northumberland

Kind Regards
Catherine K

Have you found the family on any census?

There is an Alexander Patton birth in Tynemouth 1864 and he died 1953 - but 1871 shows his parents as John & Ann

Before you send for the cert I gave details of above - was Isabella's maiden name definitely Rogerson?

Hi
Carol I've been checking there children and it dosent  give mothers maiden name before  1911 .I do know Isabella had a sister called Alice and she was living with her and her husband and children in Newcastle in 1911 and said she was a widower if I could find there marriage cert online I should find maiden name
