I have more information on my earlier post.........( Hello, I`m trying to find info on My G/G/Grandad John Armstrong. The only details I have are from his sons Marriege Certificate. It states George William Armstrong age 24 Batchelor, Forgeman, At time of Marriage he was living at number 1 Warren Street Sunderland and his Father was listed as John Armstrong (deceased) He had been employed as a Sawyer. I`ve looked through free BMD but there are a lot of John Armstrongs who were either Married or had died within what I`m guessing is the timeframe. I did find a Jane Armstrong (widow) in the 1881 Census living at 45, Silver Street, Sunderland who was a Canvas Weavers Spinner and she had a son George aged 13 (right age group for my G/Grandad) and a daughter named Frances of 20. I don`t have any other census resources at this time to go back further and see. if she was married to a John so could anyone please help me, I`d greatly appreciate it)

The information I received "thanks to 2 members" is that I now know the Silver Street Armstrongs are not connected to me and There was an entry in 1891 Census as follows......1891 census Warennes St Bishop Wearmouth Sunderland
Thomas Knight 25
Jane Knight 22
Eleanor Knight 2
John Knight 1
George Armstrong b-in-law 24 Forge Labourer b Sunderland
Victoria Armstrong s-in-law 15 b Sunderland.

Don`t know if they`re mine or not but there are ages so It might be possible to check for Johns death between Victorias Birth 1876 going forward for a few years? It may also be possible to trace a marriage between Thomas and Jane, with that I could order a Marriage certificate to see if her father is John. "I do note that her 1 year old son is named John" maybe after his Grandfather, does anyone have any resources to check these things out for me please? Thank you in advance :)
