Laurie Report 12 Jul 2004 10:01

Hi Maureen Oyston, Not having luck much at all. I have found a possible Margaret on 1871 but born Newcastle. She's the right age but living Elswick with her parents John 42yrs and Mary 41yes. Not getting anything for George in Durham/Middlesbrough. This Margaret is one of 11 children. Could this be her? Laurie


Lesley Report 11 Jul 2004 22:08

Hi Laurie, thanks for the offer. Do you by chance have the 1851 for the Dundraw and Kelsick area of Bromfield, Cumberland. I'm looking for some farmers by the name of TIMPERON. Many thanks in advance of any help you can give. Lesley

Hi Could you look for Alfred Cull please. I believe he was born in Hammersmith in 1846 and all I know from a marriage certificate is that his father was George Cull. It would be much appreciated.Thanks Di

Hi Laurie Berwick upon Tweed does come under Northumberland (though Berwickshire is in Scotland!!!) Yes please I would love you to check the Hopes in Northumbland that would be great.

Hi, Laurie Thank you so much for finding Thomas Cowdrey and Jane. My Dad is very pleased as he has been unable to locate them at the records office. I don't suppose you happened to note the full address and/or piece/folio number? Also was there any sign of their daughter, also called Jane? She would have only been a few months old,so wondering what they could have done with her. Again many thanks for your help.

Unknown Report 10 Jul 2004 11:33

Hello Wonderful offier I do not know if Ancestry can assist me or not, I am trying to find out where one John William Fleetwood was born, seems my only hope could possibly be the 1851 census, he died in 1853 in the Wolverhapton area on the 1851 Staffordshire he should be living with his wife Caroline and daughter Hannah Georgiana Sophia. This is all the information I have if you could help it would be amazing.


Laurie Report 10 Jul 2004 11:10

Hi Joanne, There are no Hutchings in Dorset. There are some in Devon if you want me to look through these. Laurie


Laurie Report 10 Jul 2004 11:05

Hi Julie, Could Berwick come under another County? Not getting Berwick in Northumberland. There are Hope's in Northumberland, do you want me to check these ones out for you? Laurie
