Hi Linda Thanks so much for your kind offer, If you have the time could you look for Alexander Purvis living in Union Lane in Sunderland in 1846 so either the 1841 or 1851 would be great. Many thanks Claire


Linda Report 11 Aug 2004 09:10

Angela, have looked at Pittington, Sherburn and Shincliffe areas without success. The St Nicholas area of Durham is just too big to look at every village, sorry Linda

THANKS LINDA for all your efforts. I really do appreciate your time. Angela (Keiths daughter)

Linda, I may not have enough information for you to do a successful look-up but working on the basis that if you don't ask, you don't get, so here goes: Looking for Ruth WOOD on the 1841 census. She would be aged 10 or thereabouts (I suspect her age will be rounded down anyway). Her father is John WOOD (possibly aged about 40). Mother, I think is called Mary Ann (don't know her age). Ruth was born in Middle Rainton, so they may be living there or in West Rainton (a lot of my ancestors are from there). The only other info I have is that Ruth married in 1849 and was living in Elemore Vale, which is part of Easington Lane. She married in Pittington. Many thanks, Andy


Linda Report 12 Aug 2004 09:43

Andy - they were in Easington Lane in 1841: (ages rounded down to nearest 5 after the age of 15) HO107/312 ED8 folio 14 page 21 name age occ. born in county John Wood 45 coal miner y Mary Wood 40 y Ann Wood 20 y Ruth Wood 11 y Hannah Wood 8 y Mary Wood 1 y These are other Wood families I came across when looking at Rainton: East Rainton William Wood 50 ind. y Ann Wood 50 y Thomas Wood 20 grocer y Mary Wood 20 y John Wood 35 butcher y Eleanor Wood 35 y George Wood 4 y John Wood 3 y hope this helps Linda

Kathleen - I have looked for Charles in Gateshead without success. It is such a huge area that I only looked at the centre, but he may already have been living in Newcastle 1871 if they were married there. sorry Linda
