I have found this entry below for 1851
Hull Mary Head W F 73 1778 Gardeness Bishop Auckland
Hull May daughter unmarried F 40 1811 Newton Cap, Auckland Durham
Race John son unmarried M 13 1838 scholar Newton Cap Auckland Durham
Address: Newton Cap Auckland Co Durham

His mother's maiden name was Hull so I believe this is him. Could someone take a look at the 1841 and 1861 census to see if he is still at the address. On the 1881 census he is at Newton Cap. The 1911 census (see above) has a John Race at Newton Cap. Thank you.

John died March Q 1917 aged 81, could someone please look at Ancestry for the Probate/Will. I've had a look at the Ancestry index and it looks as though there is only one John for 1917. Thank you.
