red mail More Watsons?
I know there were a few farming families by the name of Watson in Greatham, and I wonder if my Watsons were in any way related to them and if that is why they moved to the area from Yorkshire. They were Frederick and wife Ada, daughter Abigail (later a hairdresser in Stockton Rd) son William (my father ---later police officer in Hartlepool Constabulary) They lived on Owton Fence House Farm near Greatham from the 1920's ? until Ada's death in 1934 followed by Fred in 1938. Any information would be welcomed.
red mail Wilsons of Greatham
My 4X Gt Grandparents moved from Stranton to Greatham around 1800. My 4X Gt Grandfather, Robert Wilson, died at the age of 46 in 1803. He was buried in Greatham churchyard (close to the present day war memorial.) His wife and family continued to live in Greatham until 1889 when my last known relative there, Margaret Wilson of De Montfort Cottage, died a spinster at the age of 66. I have details of some family wills, census returns, burial records and land & property holdings for the period 1803 - 1889. I am looking for any further information of the Wilson family, Margaret, Mary, Jane & Francis (my 3X Gt Grandfather) or any pictures of Greatham which date from this period. Charles
