red mail Richardson Moon
Thomas Richardson's father was George Richardson. Thomas (1861-1927) married Ann Moon (1865-1939) in 1892. They lived in Backworth and then later Hirst, Ashington on Severn Street, then later Poplar Street. They had 14 children by 1911, however, I do not have all of those names. None of the children were listed with them on the census. Their children were: Esther Mae (1894); Lily Mae (1896); William Moon (1898); James Moon (1900-1900); Thomas 1903-1903);Emily, (my grandmother), (1904); Violet Mae (1905); Olive (1911or 12). Henry Richardson(1864) was Thomas' brother. He went to America with their mother and sponsored Thomas' daughter, Esther, on her immigration to America in 1911. I am pretty close to being certain that Thomas' mother's name was Jane Anne Smith. Her youngest sister was named Esther. Esther married Nicholas Carr and they lived with her father, Henry Smith, for a time till 1881. They immigrated to America that year. Nicholas Carr sponsored Thomas' second daughter, Lily Mae, on her immigration in 1914. Emily immigrated (at 16) in 1920 and Violet in 1924. Ann Moon's parents were James and Emma Moon from Somerset(shire). They lived in Havelock Place, Backworth. Thomas and Ann's youngest surviving daughter, Olive, remained in England and married John George Ferguson in 1929. They lived on Alexandra Street. Later they lived in Tosson Place, East Villas. They had four children, George, William, Norma Kathleen (who died in infancy) and John. JG Ferguson died in 1955 and Olive was then married to an Alfred Lumsdon from Scotland Gate.

red mail Looking for information on John & Rebecca Mowat Married in Tynemouth Area in 1829
They had 3 children: John Mowat born 1831, Mary Mowat born 1836, Thomas Mowat born 1830, it seems that when Mary was baptised in 1836 her father (john) was dead, this all happened in the Tyneside area of Northumberland. Their information is stored in 'Christ Church'?
