Seymour, John Robert
I'm looking for information about John Robert Seymour who was born in 1870 somewhere in the south of England according to family sources. I have been unable to find a record of his birth at the GRO or any census details that fit him. I know that he married Margaret Roche (a widow, nee Riley) as a widower in 1916 in Gateshead and that they had five children. He died in 1955 aged 84. His occupation was given as "General Labourer" on his marriage certificate. I would like to know more about when and why he came to Gateshead and also to be able to pin down his place of birth. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Lawrence Daniell. I am researching both sides of my family tree with particular interest, at the moment, in my Mothers side (REDING) as her 18th and 19th century ancestors came from Hampshire and are local. Other Hampshire names of interest are CANNON, GLASPOOL (including variations), MOSS, MOORE especially in the Andover, Winchester area.
I have traced my Fathers side (DANIELL) to William Daniell who married Charlotte Bishop in Lambeth in 1827. I found this on the IGI and know nothing else about them(yet!) Any help with either side would be greatly appreciated.
