I am lost with the Peter Kane(1833) down as being buried Westoe...where did you get your info.when did they die..?
I would be suprised if they were buried back home ..usually the families hadn't a penny to Bless themselves with wasn't uncommon in the recent past for folk to go home but
not the time period your looking at.

There are plenty Kane/Cain buried in Harton but I cant see a Peter.
Tyneside archives have the Westoe Burial Book


kane Report 13 Jan 2013 20:01

yes the kanes and kellys where in northumberland, north sunderland, belford,holywell, murton , backworth
i know kanes exist in holywell
being rc families i am not sure if there churches still exist
the other point puzzling me is although peter 1833 and mary wallace kane 1832(1822) are down as buried in westoe there is no trace of them, being irish could they have been buried in ireland? was it a common practise?

catherine. and place in ireland she came from
xchecking as i have googled ross more leitrim which is north of longford
as i know ellen kelly was a cousin of peter kane (cain) then i am assuming peter 1833 and catherine 1843 came from the same place
this pinpoints the irish starting point

I was actually christened in St Dominic's church so know the parish quite well.

This is how the school of St Dominics joined St Catherines:

"In the late nineteenth century our parish church, St Dominic's, opened a school next door to the church; it was called St Dominic's Primary School.

Meanwhile in Jesmond there was an order of Dominican Sisters who lived in a place known as The Minories near the Cradlewell. There was a convent and a small preparatory school for boys. In the late 1960's the city council planned to build a big new road and the Sisters had to move so they were given a new site. St Catherine's Convent and a new prep school for boys was built in the early 1970's.

Over in Shieldfield, St Dominic's Primary School's building was now quite old and in a poor state, while at St Catherine's there weren't many pupils in a brand new building. It was decided to move all the pupils and staff from St Dominics to St Catherine's school. The Sisters made a condition, that St Dominic's Primary take on the new name of St Catherine's."

So why don't you email St Catherine's and ask their advice?
Or contact St Dominics

I can't think of any other assistance to offer you.
