Also James Keegan 1870 is in the 1901 census with his wife Ellen, but i have been unable to locate a marriage for James and Ellen. have searched throughout the UK. Can anyone help? Doreen.

Doreen....Its starting to get a bit complicated here...!!
The following corresponds with a **Jane McDonald** also has a Susannah...

1871 Census Bishop Auckland....

Household Gender Age Birthplace self
Michael Mcdonald M 45 Ireland
Susannah Mcdonald F 44 Ireland
daughter Ann Mcdonald F 19 Coniston, Lancashire
daughter Jane Mcdonald F 18 Cumberland
son John Mcdonald M 15 Cumberland
son Felix Mcdonald M 10 Leadgate, Durham
son Thomas Mcdonald M 4 Etherley, Durham
daughter Susannah Mcdonald F 8 Whitworth, Durham
granddaughter Jane Ward F 2 Etherley, Durham
** grandson James Keegan M 0 Etherley, Durham***

In all probability Jane has been listed under her maiden name on this Census but I cannot see original to clarify her status...

Doreen...I have given you James Baptism


St Wilfreds RC Church Auckland...29 May 1870

I believe the Reg may be held at Durham Archives so you will need to contact them...to be sure you can contact St Wilfreds....

Mary Anna was Baptised 28 Jan 1872....Sunderland
Alice Joanna was baptised 17 Feb 1876 ...Sunderland
Mary Jane was born 1877 but cant find her Baptism..
Bridget was born 1880....on 1881 Census living Stockton so maybe St Wilfreds

Doreen Report 25 Sep 2012 21:19

so i suppose mary anna must be ann.
alice joanna is a new one to look into,
.thanks so much.

Doreen

Doreen Report 25 Sep 2012 21:31

do these baptisms give the parents names for each child? i want to verify the parents for mary anna, and alice joanna. These names i presume are really mary ann and alice jane. ?

i have discovered an illegitimate birth, of peter keegan. the mother annie keegan gave birth in the workhouse , stockton, on 12 december 1894. no father listed.
Can anyone find a baptism for him?
I have only found him in the 1901 census as a child. i found a death for him in1972 aged 77.
Can anyone find him in 1911 or any info about him.
