Oh I see thanks. Good for her running the business! Am confused now though because no sign of daughter Jessie in 1871/1881. She lived beyond the 1940s because my cousin remembers her!!

Hi Margaret I hope you will be able to help locate the parents of Elizabeth McBride who was born in Hebburn in 1884. Her father was Peter McBride, aged about 35 in 1881 and occupation Boiler Maker. Her mother, Mary McBride nee Keenan born Glasgow would be aged 28 in 1881. I don't know if they were married before or after 1881. Possibly living in Glasgow or Fifeshire. Would appreciate anything you can find as I only have them in the 1901 census. Carol
