red mail Douglas Family
Hi, I'm looking into my family tree and have come across that my great grandfather (Frederick Douglas) was adopted in 1905. He had 3 brothers, walter, william and alfred that come to canada with him in 1905. They were placed in fegans home shortly after the passing of their mom. He also had another brother Charles and Joseph and a older sister Emma. From what I know I believe they lived in Potterspury or very close to this area. I know the mom (Mary) died in 1904 and she was the widow of Joseph Douglas. I know he died before she did but have no other information about him. If anyone has any other information about this family I would appreciate anything!

John Scrivener returned to the Potterspury school on June the 26th 1871 after an absence of about three weeks, he had been ill. I have looked at the events leading up to this date and I find that an Epidemic had swept through the village, which may have been the cause of a school pupil's death on the 6th of June the same year.
Potterspury/yardley Gobion
Holloway John Holloway of Yardley Gobion was the first person interred into the new Independent Church Yard and Burial Ground at Potterspury in 1828 - I have been unable to find any records for the chapel prior to 1821, the sextons note book which was used to compliment the main regester holds a lot of information, but there is a poem entitled "My Brother" and signed J. Holloway but undated. We in one mothers arms were locked, Long be her love repaid, In the same cradle we were rocked, Round the same hearth we played. We are but one, be that our bond, To hold us till we die, Shoulder to shoulder let us stand, Till side by side we lie.
