red mail Elizabeth Hodgson nee Havelock
Elizabeth Hodgson was buried in Bishopwearmouth cemetery Apr. 12, 1858. She was the wife of Vincent Hodgson, potter. Her date of baptism was Nov. 20, 1817 in Guisbprough. Vincent's marriage record shows Amelia Havelock as his wife. The first 5 children's birth certificates show her as the mother. The sixth child, Hannah (my g-grandmother) shows Elizabeth Havelock as her mother. No burial record has been found for Amelia and no marriage certificate for Vincent and Elizabeth. Only Elizabeth was shown as his wife on the census returns. Elizabeth's burial record shows Vincent as her husband. I would like to know if Amelia and Elizabeth are one and the same person or if they were actually two different people. I have no idea how large the cemetery is but if there is someone who lives near the cemetery and has occasion to walk around it looking at the stones, I would be grateful if they would keep an eye open for Elizabeth/Amelia's grave and let me know if the name 'Amelia" appears on it.
red mail Vincent Hodgson
I'm looking for info on the famiy of my gg-grandfather, Vincent Hodgson b. 1807. There were 4 children named in the 1851 census, Havelock (1837), Jane (1839), Mary (1841) and Hannah (1949). The only children I have any additional info on are Hannah (my g-grandmother) and Havelock Hodgson who married Agnes Stewart of Gateshead in 1860. Havelock and his wife were traced to Northumberland in 1861 and I have no further info on his family. I have the birth certificate of Hannah and would like to obtain the birth certificate of Havelock as there is some confusion about the name of his mother. Hannah's certificate shows Elizabeth Havelock as her mother. Her name is on the census with the children. I have only been able to find a marriage certificate for Vincent Hodgson and Amelia Havelock in 1835. I would like to know the name of the mother on Havelock's birth certificate but as his birth occurred before registrations began, I am having difficulty finding this info. Does anyone have any knowledge of this family? If so, I would appreciate hearing from them.
red mail Dowson, Melvin, Crofton, Anderson
Looking for the descendants of Thomas Dowson, lived in Bishopwearmouth from 1825 until his death at Hendon Rectory, Rutland Rd. in 1881. (born Witton-le-Wear 1800). He first married Elizabeth Crofton in Bishopwearmouth in 1825, and 2) Elizabeth Melvin in Monkwearmouth in 1833. Looking for descendants, if any, of his daughters from his first marriage: Margaret Dowson b.1826, Isabella Dowson b. 1827, marriages unknown, and from his second marriage, his daughter Mary Ann Dowson(b.1839, d.1910)who married John Edward Anderson at Brougham St. Tabernacle in 1873 (Edward/John died 1918). I can share old photos, info about NZ Dowsons, and Dowson ancestors in Witton-le-Wear and Hamsterley back to 1570s.
