My grandmother was Myrtle Kane ( I believe). She married Orville Putt. They lived in Indiana, USA. I was just looking for her name. No idea on her parents names. Thank you for all the work you put into this. I didn't see Granma though, unless I missed her. She would have been born in the 1880's or 1890's, is my guess.

Due to a tragedy within the family when I was young, I have limited knowwledge of my ancestry and would be interested if anyone knows anything about my father John Ward and mother Iris nee McMaster. I am also interested in the adoption of my baby brother in about 1960, we named him Kenneth but it is unlikely that he kept that name. He was adopted by Dick and Sheila Chaplow of Stockport. They emigrated to Canada when 'Kenneth' was about 3 I think. Any information about this would be appreciated.

I am trying to find my grandparents who lived at 48 Coach Lane Hazelrigg Ponteland Northumberland in the year of 1912
My mother was born at that address in that year.
Unfortunately it is very expensive for myself to pay for the geanology sites, due to me living in South Africa and the exchange rate from SA to UK is so ridiculously high.
I am at present in UK staying with relatives and between us we are trying to place the family members together.
My grandfather was a coal hewer in the mines but everything else is so vague.
I have all names of my mothers brothers and they all lived in that area except my mother who left the area to marry my father in Nottinghamshire, they are now buried in Africa due to us leaving UK in the early 1960's to settle in Africa.
Sorry to enter this in your guest book but other sites have been so unhelpful.
If you could either advise me where to beable to find any geanology information free I would appreciate it very much, most of the sites need a subscription for this information, however years ago this was all free from Somerset House where everybodys records were kept.
I have a great passion for Northumberland with great interest of the mines and the communities during the early days when my grandparents lived there, I would like to know any information that you could give me on this area if possible.
I shall be on this email address until later next year.

Very best regards,
Susan Murray.

Just a snippet that may be of interest to you. My mother's father Albert Dettmer from Sunderland migrated to Merseyside. He had a friend TOM WAKE, also north-eastern, who had been married to one of Albert's cousins, not sure which. He settled with a Wirral girl and had at least two duaghters, Margaret/Peggy Wake, and Mona Wake (who emigrated to Canada, I think.) They were probably born early twenties, he married their mother considerably later when his first wife died.

Great site! gave me a lot of background infor for my tree.

Looking for parents of Ann Straker who married William Johnson at Tynemouth in 1839 in Tynemouth Durham. She was "one of the Cramlington Strakers" according to William's obituary and had a sister married to John Dryden.
William had been married before to Elizabeth Watt and had three children. With Ann it is thought he had only one: William Straker Johnson born in 1841.

William was a shipowner, and ran a large mast and block and tackle making business. He and Ann lived in Bedford terrace South Shields.

p.s Thought you`d be interested- when the co-op (newgate street) was closing i went into the back rooms to collect
my purchases - it was like stepping back in time, how old the door archways and brickwork where compared to the rest of the shop and the man told me that it used to be the gaol and the cellars were unchanged too-maybe you could get in and take some photos as it is going to be apartments

Hi

I'm very interested in researching my Dads side of the family with the surname Kane. I know suprisingly little of them and im not sure where to start. I need to talk with my Grandfather Kane I guess and do some looking on the net and such. I m originally from Bushmills area on the North Antrim coast. I think I may have scotish ancestry as well. Its a very interesting subject and your site has inspired me to find out more about my Kane family.

I have traced my Charlton line back to 1700s. They originate in Chollerton. George Charlton was born about 1792 and his father John Charlton was baptised in 1763. His fatehr was William Charlton.
George Charlton's wife was Ann PAtterson, born Simonburn in 1804. Her maternal line were Verty (or Varty) and I have traced them to about 1700 in Penrith, then to Allendale and StJohn Lee.

George and Ann's son Georg, married Isabella Lawson from Bellingham. Her father was John Lawson, a stone mason from Greenhaugh. near Bellingham.

If this is familiar to anyone, we may be able to help each other.

The Philipsons were from Bedlington. John Philipson was a blacksmith at Barrington Colliery in mid-1800s. He married Mary Stoker.

Just started researching my dad's family. The list of surnames gets longer. Mr paternal grandmother's family was named Rutter and lived in Burradon and Camperdown before then. My GGGrandfather was Edward Rutter, born Gosforth in 1841. Married Margaret Jane Ramshaw. Edward's father was Thomas Rutter who married Margaret Ann Wheatley of Earsdon in 1830. I would be grateful if anyone has connections.

Also, My paternal grandfather's family are proving difficult to track down. The surname is Scott and they moved south from Ancroft and Scremerston mid-1800s to work in the mines at Pegswood and Ahsington. William Scott, born about 1846 in Scremerston, married Elizabeth Muerr, born about 1843 in Morpeth area. Can't find any information on Elizabeth and her family.

The kingdom of Northumbria stretched from the Humber to the Forth and was once the most powerful kingdom in the British Isles and was a nation before either England or Scotland existed.
The Lindisfarne Gospels are the greatest Northumbrian treasure.
There has been an ongoing campaign to have the Gospels returned to the North East from London for some time. Back home the gospels would be a boost to Northumbrian pride in our own achievements; they would become a focal point for people studying our unique culture & history.
And I would like to see regional organisations such as One North-East, the Regional Assembly, and Culture North East put their weight behind the campaign, these organisations seem to keep such a low profile in relation to our regional culture I am sure most people aren’t even aware they exist.
It would be nice to see prominent individuals from our region backing the campaign as well.
Now there is an opportunity for the people of this region to make their feelings known by signing an online petition for the permanent return of the Gospels at the Northumbrian Association website.

Areas Researching Newcastle upon Tyne
Comments:
David,

Impressive website

I wonder if you could assist me or point me in the right direction re investigating a 'local' individual or tracing any living family

Over the past seven years I have been researching the story of a young aspiring war journalist – Dorothy Lawrence who in 1915, after being refused to become a war correspondent by some leading London newspapers, went over to France, disguised herself as an English, male soldier and managed to spend 10 days with the Royal Engineers, working on trenches and military mining before being arrested.

It appears that Dorothy, was assisted in part of her escapade, by a ‘Sapper’ Tommy Dunn. Tommy had written a note confirming the event took place and this note is in the front of her book titled ‘Sapper Dorothy Lawrence’ which was published in 1918.

I have gained information that Tommy was hospitalised in 1918 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading with a fractured leg and he spent 92 days there. He was discharged from the Army in 1920 and returned to the Newcastle upon Tyne area. He was a miner and was 48 years old in 1918.

Looking at the census records for 1901, it appears he may have lived at 18 Double Row, Weetslade and was born at Shankhouse.

He was awarded a medal after the WW1 but it was returned in 1923, so he may have died around then. The head of the family was Susan Dunn.

Although I seem to have found his death record, dying in 1923 aged 52 in the Newcastle area, awaiting death certificate, I seemed to have come to a slow halt in tracing any living relatives and wondered if you had any ideas on how I could progress this or if you had any knowledge of Dunn's in the area?

Is it possible the local Miners club/association might have knowledge of him and his escapade?

Eagerly awaiting your reply

Regards

Raphael

I believe that the time is right for the devolution of power away from London and towards the Northeast, there is no reason why decisions affecting the people of this region shouldn’t be made here.

In the up and coming referendum we are being given the opportunity to vote for an assembly which would have the power to oversee economic development and which will focus on providing skills training, supporting local business & creating good quality jobs for all the people of the north east.

The assembly would have control and influence of one billion pounds of expenditure and as well as the economy would be involved in other areas of regional policy, including drawing up a strategic transport policy, providing good quality housing, and will influence & control decisions in areas such as arts & culture, fire and safety, tourism, heritage, protecting the environment, and health.

For the first time the people of the Northeast have the chance to open a door which will mean greater control over our own lives and the people who are saying we should vote no have nothing to offer but maintaining the status quo and continuing to have all the decisions made by senior civil servants in London and members of un-elected quangos.

We should be proud, be positive about the future and vote yes for a north east elected assembly.

I am not sure at the moment if the residents at 22 Middle Row named Sealby are the same family as well, but probably as Sealby hasn't cropped up anywhere else as a name.

You do not mention the area of Ireland that your family comes from. My husband's Cain family appear to have travelled back and forth from Roscommon Co Mayo Ireland circa 1860 as hawkers at race meetings, horse fairs etc but were eventually most settled in Shropshire
If you are able to throw any light on the Irish connection I would be grateful - Thanks for the work on this site great.

Doing my family tree has got me as far as
William Newton married to Ruth Sharp 20/11/1830 at St Johns Newcastle-on-Tyne, they had 3 sons, Robert Sharp Newton, Samuel Newton and Abraham Newton, my g/grandfather.
I've managed to go back quite a way with Ruth, But William has got me stumped. If anyone is doing research on this Newton family, I would really appreciate some help. Many thanks

Comments:
My grandparents Joseph and Mary Scott (nee Freeman) emigrated to Australia in 1929. They lived at 16 Edwins Avenue, Forest Hall, at the time they left Tyneside. He was the son of Jack & Isabella Scott of 18 Turners Terrace, West Allottment, and she was the daughter of George and Sarah Freeman (nee Whitelock)of Gosforth Row, Forest Hall. George Freeman was widowed in 1903 and later married Clara Adams. Mary had a brother named Tommy Freeman who stayed in Newcastle. She also had several half brothers and sisters from the second marriage of George Freeman. I would love to hear from anyone who knows of the descendants of either of these two families still living in the Tyneside area.

A really interesting site Dave. A pleasure to view. All of my ancestors were miners from Northumberland and it gives one a real sense of connection to note the mining village/colliery names in Northumberland and here at home in Newcastle Australia i.e. Dudley, Wallsend and the rest. When one begins to research, you also find familiar surnames of other coalmining families who migrated from Northumberland to our Newcastle and whose children and grandchildren still work in the mines here.

grandfather was a local newspaper editor in Whitley Bay. He
was John Robert WAKE born 1883 at Consett Dur. He had
a collection of sisters and brothers and they were the children
of Edward George WAKE from Consett and Legate. The next
generation seems to be a John WAKE a Master Mariner
born 1816 Lodge, Longbenton the son of Edward WAKE

Hi,

I'm looking for any info on the following people.

My Grandfather was William Dunn Born around 1906 and I think he worked at the north Walbottle Colliery and he married Nancy Hendry (not sure of dates ) His brother Lance was killed down this pit aged 16 in 1925. He also had another brother Tom who moved to West Bromich and three sisters one Maggie who lived all her life in Throckly. Not sure how many brothers and sisters my gran had but I do remember a uncle Billy in Ponteland. My grandfather and Grandmother then moved to Bates colliery in Blyth during the war and lived in Princes Gardens and then up to Cowpen on retirement. My They had Two Children Doreen (who was a local primary school teacher, and still lives in Blyth) and John (Jack) who after working for a few years at Bates pit joined the RAF.

I noticed that there was an item on the 1861 census for Dudley Colliery, which I had notes on in my file for the Latty family. Initially I was puzzled as there were no Latty's, until I checked names and noticed that the transcription was wrong, and the family were listed as SEALTY, at 21 Middle Row, Dudley Coll. I wonder if the family next door (or across?) at no. 22 were really SEALBY or if that was another Latty brother. They are not on IGI to check. The name LATTY is the correct one for the family at 21 Middle Row, as everything matches my notes which were researched some years ago. The site was great though, as I was able to take notes from my own study with no travelling!

I lived in Cramlington from 1932 to 1951 when I married Barry Sams of Dudley and went to live with his family for a year or so, we moved a lot around England following the birth of our three children. We emigrated to Canada in 1965, then Barry left to live in Spain four years ago; unfortunately, Barry died, in Spain, on April 8, 2002 and this has awakened the interest for our children to look into the past.

Dave, you are not going to believe me but my elder brother, Dave Kane, is working on our Kane Family History. Just went through many sections of your wonderfully organised website I decided that our family is so parallel to yours that our ancestor of 1800 or so could be the same person. Our [my level] current family names are: John, Frank, Leo, Dave, Mary, Tom, Patrick, Lawrence, Rose Anne, which seem to be familiar as well in our ancestors. My Great Grandfather was Patrick Kane born in Ireland and married to Cathrine Murray and they had John Joseph [my grendfather] born in Mullingar, Westmeath, Ireland, on 27 March 1865 and died in Noogee, Victoria, Australia on 21 February 1930] and Thomas, Mary, Bridgid, and Bess. At about the age of 18 John Joseph Kane must have travelled to Australia and there in Collingwood, Victoria, Australia John Joseph Kane married Hanna Gleeson on 22 August 1891 and they had 11 children of whom my father John Francis was the fourth. The first two were twin girls who died at birth. My father, John Francis Kane married Mary Kelly on 5 May 1923 and the nine of us named above were born from 1824 to 1938. Our next generation had 17 females and 34 mqles; the next had a total of 105 so far and the new generation so far has four; our family won't drop out yet!!!
Thank you Dave for having your truly wonderful website for us to discover and share. David Kane in our family is just turned 74 in July. I intend bringing your site to his notice. May God continue to grant you all the gifts you need in your life.

We have a 1973 photo of Gallowgate washhouses which is a different building to the one shown in the illustration on your pages. The illustration you have looks like the building that's now Rosies Bar, on the corner of Stowell St - is that right? The picture we have appears to have been on the corner of Gallowgate and Strawberry Lane. Can there have been two washhouses in that area?

Great site found by accident when looking for information on the Newcastle Berwick Railway where I have just discovered an gt x 3 Uncle was killed in an embankment fall. I have managed to get a copy of the coreners report. I was looking for more information on the Railway workers of the North East. The corners report is not very long I was hoping to find out where in Ireland the Devitt family came from but not luck, I have a copy of every census except 1841 but I dont think they were there then. Could you advise me of any other source of information on these Navvies.

Thanks again for putting up such a great site.

Interesting site here,one little point may be to note that whilst twice as many Irish were illiterate it was due to the penal laws at the time that discouraged poorerIrish families from gaining an education as long as they practised catholicism so were faced with loyalty to their religion or social advancement.Not 100% clearcu but this was a factor in the reputation of"thick Irishmen".

In 1895 they are in Middlesbrough & in 1901 they are in Stockton-on-Tees. My grandfather ,also called Henry, is supposed to have been born in Wallsend but I have applied for birth cert(Nov 1888) with no luck . Any advise would be welcome but ideally I would love to find a relation.

I found your site of great interest - I was born and brought up in Dudley and was delighted to see your articles and photographs. My family moved up to Northumberland from Norfolk to work in the coal mines from about 1870 I think. They lived in the colliery rows to start with. There are a lot of families from Norfolk on the 1881 census who must have moved up to the area to find work.
I am trying to find my great great grandad's birth at Howdon in 1805 - he was called Henry Clark and in later years was a shoemaker at Seghill, Annitsford. Anybody know this Clark family?
Keep up the good work!

Birth in 1881 Quarter December District of Tynemouth volume 10b Page 213.
This has to be my Grandfather. It's the only Kelters I can find in this area.
I have only a picture of my Grandfather in a Merchant Marine uniform.
He married my Grandmother Mary, who's maiden name was either McGurk or McGuirk I believe she may have been from Belfast Northern Ireland.
My Mother Catherine as she signed her name on her marriage certificate was listed as Kathleen on my Birth certificate.
This appears to be a very rare name as far as names go.
I have just got into this very recently and would appreciate any help I can with locating my Irish roots on my Mother's side.

I am going to Ireland (first time) in Nov. and am researching Francis McCain-Cain-Kane. Rumor has it he's from Kingscourt, Caven County but he stowed away at approx. 12 years old to US and I have no way of tracing him. If I could find a good lead before I travel to Ireland I would be MOST appreciative. Francis was born in 1818. Anyone care to respond?

My branch of the O'kanes came from castle Gregory on a ship called the "oxford". It arrived in Auckland New Zealand on the 2nd of March 1877. Two brothers Peter and Thomas O'kane and Mary and Thomas O'Donnell all settled in a place called Gisborne. The O' Was dropped and the family became just Kane's Peter later returned to Ireland and married a Joanna McKenna. They had one child who died soon after birth so they then returned to New Zealand. There is a large list of family from Thomas's side of the family living here in New Zealand.
