William Reay / Elizabeth Snowdon
Hi, I'm researching a family tree for a friend. William Reay (born abt 1873) married Elizabeth Snowdon 12 Nov 1891. They had (at least) one child, George William Moreland (born 9th Jul 1891) - he was brought up by William's sister Agnes & her husband George Logan per 1901 & 1911 census entries. Not sure why? William & Elizabeth's address on George's birth cert was 1 East St Jarrow. I can find no parents/siblings for Elizabeth - no date of birth. What happened to his father William?

red mail McQuade/McQuaide family 1864-1885
I have a Francis McQuade and his wife Bridget Sands both born in Ireland who were living in Jarrow between 1864 and 1886. Their children, Thomas b1864, Sarah Jane b1868, Francis b1870, Joseph b1873 and Patrick b1876 were all born in Jarrow. I don't know how long they lived in Jarrow before Thomas was born but I can't find them on the 1861 census. Did they come directly from Ireland or via Scotland, or other parts of England? In 1871 they were living in Pearsons Place, Jarrow and in 1881 at Ferry St. Jarrow. Francis was a labourer in 1871, a labourer in the Iron works in 1881 and a riveter in 1886 when he dies in Sunderland. My biggest problem is finding out where they came from in Ireland. All I have for Francis is born Ireland but in the 1901 census Bridgit says she was born in Cork? but I can find no trace of her there. I hope that when the Irish came to Jarrow in early 1860's they came from a specific area of Ireland. They doesn't appear to be any connection with the other McQuaide family that was in Jarrow at the same time. Any help would be much appreciated.
