Need help finding Robert W Stobbs (born 1786) death date
« on: Wednesday 19 May 21 10:31 BST (UK) »
I am at a loss at finding my ancestor's death date. Robert W Stobbs was born in 1786 in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England. Married Elizabeth Skeen 1808 in All Saints, Newcastle, Northumberland, England. But I just can't find a death date. His kids are buried at Preston Cemetery in North Shields, England but I can't find him there. Can anyone help me??

Age slightly out but people weren't always accurate with ages when registering a death.

Firstly can I say - not all trees are correct - but this tree states that Robert - although baptised 27th November 1786 at All Saints ,Newcastle Upon Tyne - was BORN 1783 and died July 1849

It is up to you whether you trust the info on this tree

another tree - of Robert Junior gives Elizabeth Skeen parents


Henry STOBBS ca 1759-       ? ?       Richard SKEEN ca 1760-   Hannah WILSON ca 1761-
|
Robert STOBBS ca 1783-1849             Elizabeth SKEEN ca 1788-1854   
|
Robert Stobbs 1819-1856   

BOTH trees are posted by Michael Crowe - who it would seem is a distant relation to you ...

Welcome to Rootschat!

I don't know if this is your fellow, but just in case:

Newcastle Guardian and Tyne Mercury 01 September 1849

Deaths

On the 27th ult. of cholera, aged 66, much respected, Mr Robert Stobbs, many years off-putter at Fawdon Drops.


This would match the one Girl Guide referenced.

Same fellow as my last post, but this newspaper put occupation as boat builder.

North & South Shields Gazette and Northumberland and Durham Advertiser 31 August 1849

At East Howden, on the 27th inst., aged 66 years, Mr. Robert Stobbs, boat builder, of cholera.
