red mail Marshall,John Shepherd
I am looking for any information on my great grandfather,John Shepherd Marshall.At the time of the 1911 census he was living at 13,Beech Tce,South Moor,Stanley aged approx 54.He was a police constable in 1901 but may have become landlord of the Imperial Hotel on retiring from Durham Constabulary.
PHOEBE HOVELLS
I would be grateful for any information on Phoebe Hovells, who was born around about 1821 and Christened in Belton, Suffolk. Her parents were Henry Hovells and Phoebe (nee Powell) who were married in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1812. I am interested to know if Phoebe married, although I am aware that she gave birth to a daughter - Mary Jane Hovells in 1841. The family later (1851 census) lived in South Moor, near Stanley and had a number of children, including Robert and Benjamin. The young Mary Jane was then living with her grandparents. Can anybody please tell us what happened to Phoebe? Thank you.

Searching for details of Great Grandmother Margaret Ann Turnbull (B 1883, D 1965) Married John William Thirlaway (1902), Married Mr Halliday (1945) Born Durham lived in Oxhill, Kyo Laws, South Moor, Quaking Houses. She owned busses and lost alot of money in 1927 (approx) allegedly founded the Consett to Newcastle Bus route. Owned general store in Quaking Houses (a.k.a. Nanny Goats Island). Went to Durham station to pick up newspapers and delivered to area around Stanley. Used to send John William Thirlaway off on a cart to sell fish but he came back drunk. Lived in Stone House at the top of South Moor/Oxhill (this still stands today). I understand that an articles were written about her in the Francis Gay Fireside Book and Stanley Evening News about 1960's. Anyone with any information/Memories please contact me.
SOUTH MOOR
I am researching for a friend who understands that her father Matthew Martin was born in or around South Moor somewhere around 1873/4/5. He subsequently moved to London where he met Marys' mother - it would appear that he was already married with a family. Mary was born in 1930. He died - recorded aged 74 - in London in 1947
