red mail Alnwick - Cole
My great great grandfather William Edward Cole (b1821) settled in Alnwick in the 1830s having come from Wivenhoe Essex. He married Elspeth Young from Rothbury in about 1841. He was a Tinsmith and lived in Canongate Street and then Clayport Street. Does anyone know anything about his wife - I can't find her details or a marriage, though I do have both of their death certificates. They had 15 children, though many died in childhood. My Great Grandfather Benjamin Cole was born in Alnwick 7/4/1854. He married Elizabeth Trobe Simpson on 14/4/1874 in Newcastle and went on to have nine children. He was a Sawyer later a slater and in his sixties was the caretaker of a mission in Alnwick. He lived in Forbes Yard, then Union Court and at his death in 1904 at14 Hotspur Street. My Grandfather William Edward Lambert Cole was born 16/9/1875 in Alnwick and married Mary Ann Ferguson Weatherston on 26/6/1900 at St Michael's church. He was a stone mason and I have a picture of his premises somewhere in Alnwick. He went briefly to Canada 1911ish but returned before WWI. I do not know where they lived or where his stone nason business was. My father James Weatherston Cole was born 13/9/1903 in Alnwick and apart from visit to Canada as a child, he lived and worked in Alnwick until 1940 when he went to Somerset as part of WWII relocation. He worked as a cycle or motorcycle mechanic in Alnwick-again I do not know where. Unfortuately he died in 1951 when I was just 8, so I know virtually nothing about him. His brother (my Uncle) Gordon Cole was born in Alnwick 6/8/1906. I think he worked with his brother for a while. In the 1940s he and his wife moved to Bamburgh where he was postmaster and ran the post office and gift shop for over 30 years. If anyone can fill in more detail about any of my Alnwick ancestors, I would be very grateful.

Clayport, Alnwick, 1745-55
I am looking for information about this street in Alnwick in the mid C18th. My ancestor, Mark Lawson (see earlier posting), was a shopkeeper in the street at that time. His wife Dorothy died in 1752.

There are records of other Mark Lawsons in Alnwick at the same time, in the militia and as a labourer or similar, but it is not clear if any of them relate to the same person. Mark and Dorothy had, we believe, only one son (who was possibly born in Hamsterley, near Bishop Auckland, County Durham). John (born 1753) moved to Yorkshire, where he was a blacksmith. Despite checking the Apprenticeship records in the National Archive recently, I have not yet found any indication of where he was an apprentice.

The Board of Guardians hold their meetings on the second and last Saturdays of each month. p. 688 The Burial Board ? In 1856 by an order in council, the graveyard of the Parish Church was practically closed against future interments. A Burial Board was thereupon formed, and a plot of land purchased for a cemetery, about a mile out of the town. The grounds are beautifully laid out and kept in excellent order. There are two mortuary chapels in the Gothic style for the use of members of the Church of England and Dissenters respectively.
