ORWIN
« on: Saturday 25 June 22 07:59 BST (UK) »
Hi all
I;m trying to find any information about my 4G Great grandmother, Sarah ORWIN. All I have so far is she was married (poss living with) a William Parker (1790-1858) and they are buried together at Jesmond Cemetery, Newcastle Upon-Tyne.
They had 3 children I know about (last one born 1826) and she was dead by 1841 census (certainly not on the 1841 census and William is a widower on the 1851.
I have found a birth record for a Sarah from 1779 but this is unlikely  I would feel given the dates of birth of their 3 children (1823-27) Equally, I have found a BMD death record for a Sarah Orwin dated 1836 which would fit but suggests they weren't married. Waiting on a copy of that as we speak.
Thanks for any help
Phil

I note on Ancestry a member has placed a number of documents about a   
William Parker born about 1790 Death   3 May 1858.

And this online.

Another family member sent me details of their (Wm and Sarah's) gravestone. But, as you say there's little trace of Sarah herself. I'm hoping the Jesmond graveyard will send me more details about the stone and I've found a couple of potential birth and death records. Its linking them to William is the issue.

In the above article it mentions that William was married at St Mary's Church, Gateshead in 1821, and 20 years later was widowed with 3 daughters.  It also says that he served in the army in India in 1811.

Oh Terri, that's excellent , many thanks. I got a lot of the newspaper reports from that time reporting Williams speeches and I had a few modern reports regarding the plaque and Mike Greatbatch's research but not this one .
Once more down the rabbit hole  :>)

Grrr.
Found the 1821 church record for William but the bride is a different name. Not saying this is not my William , need to wait on the cemetery hopefully telling me the name of the wife on Williams gravestone.

....the dates of birth of their 3 children (1823-27)

Who are these children?

The William PARKER who lived in Lime Street had Mary, Isabella and Sarah.  It seems likely that he married Isabella POTTS in 1821 at St Mary's, Gateshead.  Where are you getting the name 'Sarah ORWIN'?
