Linda Re. MURPHYs in Stockton: Thank you so much - it was obviously good timing for a look-up! Most interesting info. - with a name like Murphy I thought they had to come from Ireland at some point. Many thanks and good luck in your own searches Helen

Hi Linda, I am really sorry but the image for 1861 does not show what area of Durham it is. If it is a big job then please don't worry. Gail


Linda Report 5 Jul 2004 09:13

Christine, sorry, they are not at that address in either 1871 or 1861. Linda

Lisa Report 7 Jul 2004 00:05

Hi Linda, Thanks for your kind offer. I'm looking to find Rosanna McKay (also known as Rose Ann) around the Consett & Harton areas of South Shields. She was born in Ireland around 1848-1851 (two different birth years on 1881, 1891 census's!). If you have time would you please look at the 1861 & 1871 census for her please? She did not marry until 1873 so I'm hoping she will be with her family - fingers crossed! Thanks again Linda, Best regards, Lisa

HI Linda, many thanks for your search on Margaret Plant. James


Paul Report 7 Jul 2004 17:24

Hello Linda, I'm looking for a John Edward SPENCE born 1840 in Redmarshall, Durham. I don't know how big a settlement it was back then and unfortunately I don't have a better address. If it's too big a search, don't worry. Thanks very much. Paul


Linda Report 8 Jul 2004 08:39

Darren, yes NBL is Northumberland Linda


Linda Report 8 Jul 2004 10:24

Paul - re Armstrong. Sorry but that is just too large to trawl through, need it to be narrowed down or wait until it is indexed Linda


Linda Report 8 Jul 2004 10:35

Christine Dolan - sorry they are not in Nile street in 1871. Linda


Linda Report 8 Jul 2004 10:39

Paul - re SPENCE - have looked at Redmarshall (1841 & 1851) not very big then, but not there. Do you have any other clues? Linda


Linda Report 8 Jul 2004 10:50

Darren they are not at Wind Mill Hills in 1861 Linda


Paul Report 8 Jul 2004 21:37

Hi Linda, Thanks for looking for SPENCE in Redmarshall. I'm afraid I don't have anything else on an address until the 1881 census when they were living at 9 Cleveland Street, Middlesbrough. By then he had married Hannah CLARK and had children....quite a lot of children.. who were Marwood, Robert, Emanuel, Edward, John William, Alfred W, Thomas, jane and George. Paul


Linda Report 9 Jul 2004 16:56

Darren could not locate him in Wingate - and couldn't find Hart Bushes - but the pages for Wingate are very faint and not easy to read, so could have missed him. Sorry Linda


Linda Report 9 Jul 2004 16:57

Paul, I had a look at Middlesborough to see if they were there, without succcess. Linda


Paul Report 9 Jul 2004 22:56

thanks anyway Linda.
