Hello, trying to more about Norah Stott, born in the area Newcastle/Hexham/Rothbury Northumberland Apr 1879. She married John Rice Smith 1906 in Sunderland. and had at least 4 children Norah, May, Hilda, one child died before 1911.

The possible 1891 census shows her as an orphan!

I am looking for the 1881 and 1901 census, but cannot find anything.

Maybe somebody can help me?

Thanks,
Chris

You're welcome!
You have no doubt found the various Stotts of Newcastle, but no sign of Norah in 1881 as far as I can tell. Might be a cert!!

Well done Maureen - missed that one! It does indeed look like Stott. Great find. Doesn't help though does it, what a pity.
Her birthplace being unknown would fit with her being an orphan.

thanks Maureen, yes, could be right. could be illegitimate, have to get the certs

I found an Elizabeth Stote, died Apr 1879, maybe her mother

MaureeninNY Report 13 Jun 2013 19:46

I don't know why I'm leaning towards Thomas and Julia STOTT as her parents.

Let us know when you get the certs,would you please?

Cippy

Cippy Report 13 Jun 2013 19:48

yes, they died 1880 and 1882 !

brummiejan

brummiejan Report 13 Jun 2013 19:58

Saw that one too! I would guess Julia had a daughter:

Births Sep 1880 (>99%)
STOTT Julia Newcastle T. 10b 36
Deaths Sep 1880 (>99%)
Stott Julia 0 Newcastle T. 10b 19
Deaths Jun 1882 (>99%)
Stott Julia 29 Newcastle T. 10b 5

But you do need a cert don't you.

Will be interested to hear what you find out.
