red mail RICHARDSON - South Shields
I'm trying to find information on a Frederick RICHARDSON born in August 1904 in South Shields. His birth certificate says he was born at 20 Robert Street South Shields and that his mother was Isabella RICHARDSON. There was no mention of a father. He was raised by a family we think were called the GRIGGS but are unsure. They must have known his mother as he kept his last name. My mother-in-law Audrey(Fredericks daughter) was always told that her height must have come from the LANGLEYS which I'm assuming are related to his mother maybe. I have his marriage and death certificate's but they are of no help and mention nothing.I have checked both the 1901 and 1911 census' but with no luck. I would appreciate any help with this search. Thankyou, Danielle.

I have got back to Thomas Irwin b mid 1700's. He had 2 sons William b 1783, and Thomas b 1785 at St Giles Durham baptised. We are descended from William, but then spelt Urwin who had: Thomas b 1813 Newburn George b 1847 Usworth Washington John William b 1878 Low Fell George b 1903 Ouston Keith b 1931 East Boldon Graeme b 1959 Durham Dna tests has shown we are descended from the Bonshaw Irvings of Dumfriesshire. This is amazing stuff and gives you the chance for connections worlwide - & ClanIrwin. A lot of my DNA proven ancestors moved to Co Antrim, N Ireland, and many of those onward to USA & Canada. Also be aware of the Border Reivers connection. Any help anyone re getting further back or other connections? Thanks Graeme
