red mail Bertha Annie TAYLOR, nee COATES/MULLEN of Cornforth,Tudhoe, Ferryhill
Bertha Annie Taylor, nee COATES living 26 West Street , Ferryhill Rd. July 1908. Her marriage certificate states the marriage took place at St. Andrew's Church in the parish of Tudhoe Grange, Co. Durham on 26th June, 1902.She married Thomas Taylor, who was aged 21, and described as a batchelor and a joiner, residing at Tudhoe Grange. His father was James Taylor, described as a Labourer on this certificate (but described in a pre 1900 Census as Innkeeper of Bridge Inn, High Street, Whitworth, Co. Durham). Bertha Annie Taylor is described as a Spinster aged 22, residing at Tudhoe Grange. Her father is shown as William COATES (deceased), an Engine Driver. Bertha had at least two sisters, Minnie Mullen (or COATES) and Mary Mullen (or COATES), and at least one brother, George COATES.Minnie and George are named by another Taylor family member who knew them on Bertha and Thomas' wedding photo. Bertha's mother was thought to have married 3 times - Bertha's father, William Coates, having been the first husband. Second husband Mr.John Mullin (or Mullen). The last husband was thought to have been surnamed WESTERMAN, possibly a Henry Westerman. I have no dates or places for these marriages, only a note from my mother stating that the COATES family lived in Lumley, Co. Durham. Another possible relative of Bertha Annie Taylor's was Olive, who (maybe) was born around 1900 and died at over 90 years old during the late 1980's or early 1990's. She looked after 'Grandma Westerman' (Bertha's mother), prior to marrying 'Jack' Carr and moving to Chester-le-Street, Co. Durham where they certainly lived in the 1930's (my mother lived with them during her teenage years and Olive was her godmother). I would be glad to hear from anyone who may also be researching any of these names/families of the Spennymoor, Ferryhill, Tudhoe, Whitworth, Crook, Lumley, Willington, Chester-le-Street, or Darlington areas of Co. Durham and would be glad to hear from any of Olive and Jack Carr's descendants. Ditto Lister descendants whose ancestors were related to Thomas Taylor's family as his mother was Jane Ann Lister (born 1845/6 at Tudhoe). Thankyou.
