I am looking for information on Ann Ireland Petch born in 1846 in Northumberland. She was a domestic servant and had a son James Petch born 17 August 1877 in Newcastle upon Tyne, he was in the Middlesborough Union Workhouse as an orphan on the 1891 census, he changed his name to Woodman but i don't know when. Any information on him or his mother or father would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Hello Mandy, welcome to the community boards.

Seeing as you have an exact date of birth for James does that mean you have his birth certificate? If so, could you give us all of the information from it?

What information do you have to support that James changed his surname to Woodman?

Yes I do have his birth certificate.
He was born on 17 August 1877 at 19 Hill Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne. His mother is Ann Petch, the informant was his aunt Susannah Cooper who was present at the birth she lived at 38 Hindhough Street? Newcastle. The birth was registered on the 28th September 1877 in the sub district of westgate .

James Petch was my moms grandad who was woodman then but his birth certificate shows petch. On the 1891 census it shows hmi in the workhouse in the name of petch. Then he shows up again on the 1911 census as James Woodman married to my great gran Flora Ellen Woodman.

Yes i believe his birth cert was handed down with his possessions, i believe what i have heard is that sometimes the workhouses change their names. I have the date for his marriage but not a copy of the certificate.

Thanks

Thank you everyone for all the information, i have a lot of it already, but i would still like more if possible.

thanks

It would be a great help if anyone could tell me if Ann Petch married or when she died as she just vanished as did James between 1891 census and 1911 census.

Thanks :-)

It seems that Ann Petch may have had a connection with Middlesbrough (where James was in the workhouse 1891) before he was born.

The Northern Echo of 25 April 1875 reports on an Ann Petch who was a Cook at the Queens Hotel, Middlesbrough who was charged with stealing 24lbs of dripping and sentenced to 14 days imprisonment. Also charged was a Thomas Brown who was a waiter at the same hotel.

Seeing as Ann Petch is a cook in hotels on the 1871 & 1881 census there's a good chance it's her.

There was also an Ann Petch born 1846 in Malton (not too far from Middlesbrough) but she appears to have married in 1870 so can probably be eliminated as the person in the newspaper article.

EDIT: Have sent Amanda the snip of the article by pm
