John Nicholson ATKINSON (b 1821)
« on: Sunday 25 April 21 21:42 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help me please.
Trying to find the surname of my 3xGreat Grandmother who was the mother of John Nicholson Atkinson (born c1821). On his baptism transcription she is named as Deborah. I believe she was the first wife of John Atkinson (born c1796) and was either divorced or died after the birth of John Nicholson Atkinson in 1821 and before the birth of his first child (also called John) to his second wife Hannah Rodham in 1826 when living at 166 Gilesgate, Durham. Given the dates I would be pleasantly surprised if any information is available. If I were to hazard a guess I would say "Nicholson" as it seems to be a family tradition to give some of the children their mothers maiden name as a middle name.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Jim

WOW, That was quick. Looks to fit the bill perfectly and gives me something to work on.
Dare I ask where the birth certificate came from and was it free? if so where can I get a copy.
Might try my luck on my grandmothers branch next.
Thank you
Jim
