Eleanor KITCHEN, b1771
I'm looking for information on the origins of Eleanor KITCHEN, baptised at Auckland St Andrew on 25 December 1771 and the daughter of Thomas KITCHEN (sometimes KITCHING) and Ann. Unfortunately there is some confusion over her parentage. Thomas married Ann WRANGHAM at Kirk Merrington in 1755, but the marriage appears to have been childless until 1768 when they suddenly started producing children, ie Mary (1768), Thomas (1769), Eleanor (1771 - 1818), Catherine (1776), Dorothy (1778 - 1864), Ralph (1782), Elizabeth (1782) and Martha (1785). Ann supposedly died at Auckland St Andrew in 1826. However, I suspect that Ann WRANGHAM died sometime before 1766 and that Thomas then married another woman named Ann who was actually the mother of the children. I am descended from Eleanor and would like to establish exactly who her mother was as this is my direct mtDNA line. Thomas and Ann WRANGHAM were married by licence, and the marriage allegation gives their ages in 1755 as 30, so both were born c1725. This makes it even more unlikely (if not impossible) for Ann W to have been the mother of the above children as she would have been 43 when she started and 60 when she finished. Any suggestions or leads about a possible burial of Ann W between 1755 and 1767, or of a putative second marriage of Thomas KITCHEN to Ann mk 2 would be much appreciated!

I appreciate that both of these names occur frequently in the Durham area, but I am looking for information regarding Charles Elgy, born appx 1846 in Evenwood Gate, Durham who married a Jane Robson J/F/M 1873 in Auckland...only other info is that from the various census, she would be born appx 1855. They went on to have seven children born in Crook, Waterhouses and Brandon. There are so many Jane Robsons that I have come to a halt until I can locate the correct one. Hoping someone out there can help. Thanks

red mail Proud / Salkeld / Thompson / Hart / Wearmouth
Would love to get in touch with Descendants of = My (3x) Great Grandfather was John Thompson (b ard 1810) married to Hannah Proud (b. 10/11/1821). His son John Proud Thompson (Baptised 6/6/1834) married Ann (Hannah) Salkeld on 28/10/1850. His son George Salkield Thompson married Frances Hannah Wearmouth on 21/8/1873 - this union produced my Grand Father David Wearmouth Thompson. He was one of 11 Children. If these names appear on your tree please get in touch. I live in Australia, was born in Sunderland, UK and have just started researching the tree again after spending a lot of "manual" hours on it from 1994-1996. With best regards.

red mail Bell/Newton
My husband's great grandparents were Thomas Bell and Hannah Newton from Bishop Auckland in the late 1800's early 1900's. They had a son Thomas born in the early 1898, another Edward (Ted) who emigrated to Australia first followed by Thomas, and two daughters (Dora and Jennifer) who stayed in England. I believe they lived at Douglas Cres, Bishop Auckland. This is all the information I have concerning Thomas Sr and his wife. If anyone can help me I would be glad to hear. Nola
