Arthur was born in Darlington in County Durham to parents Ralph and Elizabeth.

He remains in Darlington on the 1871 and 1881 census's.

In 1896 he married Alice Thomas in St Thomas PC at Stockton on Tees, County Durham.

He appears on the 1901 and 1911 census's as a Licensed Victualler (Pubs).

The odd bit are that he and his parents and wife appear to have fallen off the earth on the 1891 census AND he left no death or burial record (even in the services)

Any thoughts most welcome please. :-(

Possibly Alice's baptism but then maybe not as she married in Catholic Church. EDIT now see its PC not RC.

Going to leave it for tonight.

I have been confused all evening with this request

Did check out Yorkshire marriages and England marriages on Ancestry and did not find a match

So leaving it for the time being.
