red mail Thomas Paul 1853
Hi I have really hit a brick wall concerning my Great Great Grandfather Thomas PAUL born 1852/3 in North Shields. I have his marriage certificate and his death certificate but can find no trace of his birth certificate. His marrage certificate states his father as George PAUL, a blacksmith from Newcastle however his census information from 1861 and 1871 has no mention of Thomas. The confusion is all of George PAUL's family were born in Newcastle except Thomas who on census 1881 to 1901 states he was born in North Shields and who lived all his married live in South Shields. He fathered Thomas PAUL 1881 who then fathered my Grandmother Harriet Morgan PAUL in 1909. The only other George PAUL I can find was a blacksmith from Tynemouth but he was single until he married Catherine APPLEBY a divorcee in 1866. She had a son called Thomas APPLEBY but he was born in 1861 so that can't be him. Please help Dave

red mail William James Shepherd
WJS was a man of cheerful disposition, but few words. His death certificate gives his place of birth as India (verbally confirmed to me)(place not specified) on 15th January, 1922, but I have been unable to find a birth certificate. He told me that he was given a University scholarship to study electrical engineering, but that he had dropped out because he was ribbed and worse about his accent, which he never completely lost. He served as a signalman RN (bunting tosser!) in WW2, hostilities only I believe, and had a ship sunk from under him on a Russian convoy from a near miss. In 1942 he married Gladys Welford, and subsequently had a son and three daughters. I believe that his father spent the last years of his life in Newcastle Upon Tyne. He once mentioned that the familly had contacts in South Shields. Like I said, a man of few words

I am seeking information on the following - Charles Rudolph Jopling died on 10 November 1957 at the age of 86 years. According to the death certificate a 'Jos.Jopling, Son' of 17 Belloc Avenue, South Shields was present at the death which occured at 46 John Clay Street, South Shields, Durham. Does anyone have any information on 'Jos.Jopling' or even on Charles Rudolph himself ? As background I append the following :- Charles Rudolph Jopling was born Rudolph Jopling in 1872 in Herne in Prussia (now Germany). He was the son of John Jopling and Lisette Sophie Amalie Wundsch. Sometime between 1874 and 1881 Lisette died and John Jopling brought his three children back to England. In the census of 3 April 1881 Rudolph is to be found at 71 Low Moorsley, Durham and is listed as a scholar. In the census of 5 April 1891 he is at 22 Meriden Street, Westoe, Durham and is listed as a coal miner. He married Jane Greathead, daughter of Edward Greathead and Mary Owens, on 30 December 1893 in St Mark, South Shields, Durham. The ceremony was witnessed by Mary Lizzie Greathead and Septimus Major. These two married later the following year. Rudolph is listed as head of household in the census of 31 March 1901 at 100 John Clay Street, Westoe, Durham, being described as a bank labourer living with his wife and two children. Sometime between 1901 and 1903 Rudolph appears to have decided to change his name (whether officially or unofficially) to Charles Rudolph Jopling and it is under this name that he is listed in the census of 2 April 1911 at Smith's Cottage, Claypath Lane, South Shields, Durham. He was a colliery onsetter living with his wife, his two sons and a niece in their two-roomed home. Rudolph and Jane had four children but only two were still alive in 1911, John Edward and William. When "Jos.Jopling" was born is unknown as is the identity of his mother.

Not been researching for very long but have come to a complete stop with Herbert (my paternal grandfather). I have found him on the 1901 census with parents Christopher and Zilpha Caldwell, and two siblings Grace and Christopher. Their address at this time was 12 Clementine Terrace, (Botchergate?), Carlisle. I know he moved to South Shields and married Jennie Caisley but don't know dates. He may also have been in the Sherwood Foresters during WW1. It's possible he is our 'Black Sheep'; from scant verbal family history he left Jennie at some point after approx 1924.
