Hi Linda Thanks for looking if it helps is Hexham in Durham if so can you look please just have a feeling he was born there don't know why Regareds Maureen

Linda Could you look on HO 107/2400 folios 1-417 which cover Jarrow, St hilda's South shields, Westoe etc for my SMALL family? I'm particularly looking for Francis, Charles, Robert, Nicholas, Dorothy.... It's just dawned on me that the reason they're not on HO 107/2399 might be they're on the next piece!!!! thanks

Hi Linda. Could you possibly find anything on Thomas Race or Sarah Hewitson, in either 1841 1851 or 1861 censuses. Thomas was born c 1837 in Gainford or Staindrop, Co Durham Father Thomas RaceMother unknown. Sarah was born c 1841, possibly in Staindrop, Father George Hewitson, Mother unknown. I think they were in Staindrop, all or most of there lives. Aso could you find Thomas and Sarah Race in Staindrop in the 1871 Census, they would be round 34 and 28 respectivly, Any info at all would be great, Thank you in advance ,Regards, Maggie.

Hi Linda Further to my query re John Archer born abt 1849 i think he may have been the brother of George Archer[abt 1850] who came from Lands Village Evenwood-[Parish of St Paul] Hopefully they and their parents would show up on the 1851 1861 1871 census-Thankyou-Stanley


Keith Report 22 Aug 2004 10:42

Thank You Linda! Yes this is them. It also confirms the maiden name as Pace since the mother-in-law is living with them. Could you find them in Carrville in 1861? Thanks a million! Angela

Hi Linda, Your just brilliant, I have just got in from work, and found your message for me. I knew from the 1881 census that there were quite a few Race's in Staindrop, but didnt know if or how they were related, now, thanks to you i can see that quite a few of them are related and also you have found me some family for Sarah Hewitson, thanks a million, Best regards, Maggie.

Andrea B Report 24 Aug 2004 22:37

Linda I would be most grateful if you could look up Peter and Jane Ann Green on the 1861 census. Peter would be about 40 and Jane about 48. In 71 and 81 they lived in Brunswick Street Darlington so may be there. There will also probably be a son William T born Tollerton, York and aged about 11 and maybe a daughter Mary Jane who would be about 19. Many thanks


Keith Report 25 Aug 2004 07:00

Hi again Linda! Another one for you! I have Jane Gustard in 1861 Census. I know you have looked for her in 1871 under Heslop with no luck but could you try 1851 for me. I'm clutching at straws here as I have her grandfather but not her parents. This is what I have. 1861 Census, Houghton le Spring District Family Number: 12951.6 Newbottle 1861 Census, Newbottle Village, North Back Lane William West, Head, widowed, 71, Coalminer, born Sunderland, County Durham Jane Gustard, granddaughter, 19, Housekeeper, born New Durham, County Durham So either in Houghton le Spring or Gillesgate areas please! Thank you so much for your help. Angela (Keith's daughter)
