Hi,

I have hit a brick wall trying to trace my family tree I have gone through several branches but I cannot seem to get any further back on the side of my great great great grandfather Ralph Johnson and his wife Elizabeth Ferguson.

Ralph was a Market Trader from Hurworth, Darlington, Durham and his wife Elizabeth Ferguson 1789-1880 born in Eryholme, Yorkshire. The couple were married on 15th December 1823 in Hurworth, Darlington.

Any information on their parentage or any pointers would be really appreciated.

Many thanks

Lisa
