red mail Walker
I am seeking information on the George Cunningham and Margaret Ann ( nee Atkinson) Walker family of Durham. They had a least three children, George Plenderleith, John Atkinson, Christina Plenderleith ( my G Grandmother) in 1869 at South Shields Durham. George was an engineer and pawnbroker living with his family at 129 Wapping Street South Shields according to the 1871 census. Following the death of his wife Margaret Ann in June 1872 he ceased being actively involved in pawnbroking and appointed William James of Mile End Road as his agent. By November 1872 he placed an ad advising all parcel belonging to him had been relocated to 3 Mile End Road which appears to mark the end of his Pawnbroking business. He remarried in 1876 to Georgina McGregor and later that year emigrated to Queensland Australia. Any information on the family would be greatly appreciated.

I'm seeking in formation on the origins of ancestor Thomas Bulmer, servant then Watercartman in St. Oswald's, Durham and raising a family there from 1764. He was buried there in 1815, aged 87 (though I think this might be a mistake. He was a freeman of Elvet Moor "as son of the same" - the earlier pages of the Freemen's Book are missing - and when he unsuccessfully applied for an allotment when Elvet Moor was enclosed (c. 1771) he was described as "son of John Bulmer Yeoman late of Hallgarth Street", St. Oswald's. There may also have been North Riding connections; a Thomas bapt.St.Os.1740, son of John ulmer, labourer, and his sister, Mary, and mother, Elizabeth, were removed to Guisborough c. 1743 after John died. Thomas re-married after the death of Jane - to Martha Fitzgerald. And I'm descended from their son, Daniel. Caniel was a stonemason and he married Ann Palmer whose fasther was a stonemason. The Palmers were Roman Catholic. Family legend linhs our Bulmers with the Bulmer Knights of Brancepeth and Wilton-in-Cleveland. And thje last ulmer knight, Sir Bertram, was buried at at St. Oswald's in 1638.
