Hi Linda Apologies, it's Hume Terrace not Strret and it's on the same page in the 1881 census as Yarm Road. There is definitely a Hume Terrace in Darlington now so if it still isn't there it must not have been built then. The Stanhope information is excellent as this is a vital link I am working on (albeit a very complicated one!). Would it be at all possible for you to have a look for the William Willey in 1841 too please? I doubt that you will find Margaret there as they weren't married then and I imagine she came from Thirsk with her 'niece' in the late forties - I think it's her daughter actually. Many thanks Andrea

Hi Linda I do not know if you missed my earlier request but can I ask again for a look up on the 1871 census for John Henry Reed (39) born Sunderland (Ship Broker) Eliza Reed (40) born Bickley, Cheshire Living at Thornhill Park, Bishopweamouth. They were at this address in 1881, 1891 and 1901 so hopefully they may be there in 1871! Many apologies if you have answered this and I have missed it. Many thanks Susan

Hi Linda Thanks for the offer. Could you please look on the 1871 census to see if there is a George and Mary Ann (or Maria) Anderson in Burbank Street, Stranton, West Hartlepool please. Regards Kath.

Kathleen, can't locate them in Burbank/Birbank street, sorry. Linda

Susan, there are no Callaghans in Eldon 1871, or 1861. Bishop Auckland is too big to search, need to narrow it down a bit, sorry Linda

Hi Linda Thanks for looking for my Andersons in Burbank Street, Stranton, Hartlepool. Could I just ask you if you found Burbank Street itself or not, on the 1871, as they were there in 1881, and I wasn't sure if the street existed before then. Thanks again, Kath


Sue Report 4 Jul 2004 04:44

Thanks for looking for Callaghans. I'll try to find more info on the Bishop Auckland BARTLES. Thanks for your efforts. Sue (NZ)


Linda Report 4 Jul 2004 08:35

Kathleen, yes Burbank/Birbank street was there, (spelt both ways) it was in several sections, it must be quite a long street. Linda

Hello Linda Thanks very much for offering to do this. Does your CD cover Stockton-on-Tees? (The birth certificate I have says it is 'in the counties of Durham and York' - not too helpful!) The people I am looking for were at Maritime Street (sorry no street number), Stockton in 1865: MURPHY family, including Peter, Agnes/Agnas. Helen
