Tracing Charltons of Berry edge Consett and Hendersons of Sherburn
I am trying to trace the family of my great grandfather Thomas Charlton born in 1860 in William Street Berry Edge Consett. His mother was Jane and father unknown. He lived with his mother and widowed grandmother Isabella Charlton, born Isabella Carr in Slaley Northumberland. On his marriage certificate to Isabella Henderson in 1886 he names his father as Thomas Charlton but this was the name of his grandfather and also uncle. He worked as a miner and moved to Backworth, Blyth and Gosforth in Northumberland and died I think after 1930. Isabella Henderson was supposedly 17 in 1886 and had at least 9 children by Thomas Charlton, one of whom was my grandfather Thomas Charlton born in 1898. I know nothing of these children, or the rest of my great grandfather's family. Isabella Henderson was born around 1868 in Sherburn and her father was John Henderson a miner. Again I know nothing of this family.

red mail COLEMAN
Looking for information on, or descendants of, Annis ROBINSON and Thomas COLEMAN who probably married in the Richmond area in the June 1872 quarter. Annis was born in Cockerton (now Darlington) in 1852 and Thomas in Gayles in the parish of Kirkby Ravensworth near Richmond, North Yorkshire c1846. Annis and Thomas had the following known children: John James (1873), Arthur (1874), Eliza Jane (1875), Charles William (1877), Margaret Moore (1878), Wallace (1880), Emmeline (1882), Ernest (1883) and Ada (1885). All were born at Melsonby in North Yorkshire except for Charles who was born in Middlesbrough. Thomas Coleman was a quarry worker and some time before the 1901 census the family moved to Consett where they were enumerated at 37 Medomsley Road. As at that date, all the children were unmarried and living at home, except for Eliza Jane who was enumerated at the home of her grandparents (Annis's parents) John ROBINSON and Margaret nee MOORE in Marske. I believe John James might have subsequently married in Sunderland in 1902, Eliza Jane at Guisborough in 1902 and Margaret Moore at Consett in 1901. Anyone recognise any of them please?
