Smith, Rochester family
I'm looking for Bernard Smith (born around 1836 in Scotland)- married to Phoebe (b Staffordshire, maiden name unknown). Bernard was a glassmaker and I assume this is what brought him both to the Sunderland/Seaham area and St Helens.
I have the family in 1861 (in St Helens), 1871 (Sunderland) and 1881 (Bishopwearmouth) but I can't find Bernard before this. The children of the couple (Samuel, John, Louise, Robert, Ann & Phoebe) were all born in Sunderland. I think Bernard may have died before the 1891 census but I'd like to find where he was prior to 1861. Samuel (also a glassmaker) married Ann Cavanan in Sunderland in 1882. Samuel and Ann are the parents of my Grandmother Phoebe who married Robert Rochester in 1904 and lived in Seaham.
