red mail Thomas Hodgson, Bishopwearmouth
Trying to trace Thomas Hodgson born around 1808 who married Sarah Carr in 1836.. Thomas was a Master Mariner as shown by Susannah on the 1851 census. By later census records she is shown as a widow. Their son Anthony Carr Hodgson was born in 1844 and married Isabella Crawford in 1866 (his father Thomas is shown as deceased on this marriage certificate). ANY information on when Thomas died (between 1852 and 1865) or Anthony who died prior 1881 (Isabella remarried and emigrated to USA) would be gratefully received.

I am trying to find more information on Jane Anne Martin, who was living in Bishopswearmouth in 1850. She was "ruined" by Henry Trewhitt Naters and took him to court in September 1851.

red mail Elizabeth Hodgson nee Havelock
Elizabeth Hodgson was buried in Bishopwearmouth cemetery Apr. 12, 1858. She was the wife of Vincent Hodgson, potter. Her date of baptism was Nov. 20, 1817 in Guisbprough. Vincent's marriage record shows Amelia Havelock as his wife. The first 5 children's birth certificates show her as the mother. The sixth child, Hannah (my g-grandmother) shows Elizabeth Havelock as her mother. No burial record has been found for Amelia and no marriage certificate for Vincent and Elizabeth. Only Elizabeth was shown as his wife on the census returns. Elizabeth's burial record shows Vincent as her husband. I would like to know if Amelia and Elizabeth are one and the same person or if they were actually two different people. I have no idea how large the cemetery is but if there is someone who lives near the cemetery and has occasion to walk around it looking at the stones, I would be grateful if they would keep an eye open for Elizabeth/Amelia's grave and let me know if the name 'Amelia" appears on it.
red mail Calvert's Drapers
I am trying to trace the life of my husband's grandfather John Henderson who was born in Scotland, and ended his life in Manchester.

I have a possible candidate in a John Henderson who was apprenticed as a draper at Calverts according to the census of 1881. Is there any archive information available for this business, or anyone who remembers it? It appears from the census returns that there were a number of apprentices who were housed on the premises.

red mail Vincent Hodgson
I'm looking for info on the famiy of my gg-grandfather, Vincent Hodgson b. 1807. There were 4 children named in the 1851 census, Havelock (1837), Jane (1839), Mary (1841) and Hannah (1949). The only children I have any additional info on are Hannah (my g-grandmother) and Havelock Hodgson who married Agnes Stewart of Gateshead in 1860. Havelock and his wife were traced to Northumberland in 1861 and I have no further info on his family. I have the birth certificate of Hannah and would like to obtain the birth certificate of Havelock as there is some confusion about the name of his mother. Hannah's certificate shows Elizabeth Havelock as her mother. Her name is on the census with the children. I have only been able to find a marriage certificate for Vincent Hodgson and Amelia Havelock in 1835. I would like to know the name of the mother on Havelock's birth certificate but as his birth occurred before registrations began, I am having difficulty finding this info. Does anyone have any knowledge of this family? If so, I would appreciate hearing from them.
