Mary Turnbull Lawson
« on: Friday 22 December 17 01:15 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find anyone who may have known my mother Mary Turnbull Lawson, especially in her later teenage years. She was b 1930 in Northumberland but brought up in the Northallerton area on the family farm, went to Wensley House school in Northallerton and in 1948 worked at her sister's cafe and/or boarding house at 31 Eastborough, Scarborough.

If you can access Ancestry there are family trees  with Mary Turnbull Lawson shown, it looks as if she died in 1990

Have you tried or thought about writing a letter to the newspaper that covers Northallerton, e.g. the Darlington & Stockton Times?  Might be worth a try.

Hi, this is Maryís niece. You have been in touch before, not with me personally but with my mother. I am happy to discuss my holidays at her home in Richmond, working at the cafes, just her general every day life. If that would interest you? Let me know what is the best way to contact you. I donít want to discuss her personal life on here.
