Clayport, Alnwick, 1745-55
I am looking for information about this street in Alnwick in the mid C18th. My ancestor, Mark Lawson (see earlier posting), was a shopkeeper in the street at that time. His wife Dorothy died in 1752. He probably married again and had at least one child, who did not survive. I would like to know more about Mark's trade and where he came from originally. There are records of other Mark Lawsons in Alnwick at the same time, in the militia and as a labourer or similar, but it is not clear if any of them relate to the same person. Mark and Dorothy had, we believe, only one son (who was possibly born in Hamsterley, near Bishop Auckland, County Durham). John (born 1753) moved to Yorkshire, where he was a blacksmith. Despite checking the Apprenticeship records in the National Archive recently, I have not yet found any indication of where he was an apprentice.
