red mail Robert ALEXANDER, Clock and watch maker
Robert ALEXANDER and his wife Ann were resident in Belford in 1815 and 1818 when their two daughters were baptised. Jane ALEXANDER was baptised on 7th May 1815 and Alice ALEXANDER on 19th April 1818: this information comes from Parish Register transcripts. Robert ALEXANDER is entered as Father on both his daughters' marriage certificates. On July 8th 1838, Alice ALEXANDER married Anthony GRAHAM in Tynemouth. Robert ALEXANDER is referred to as living 'in this Parish' and described as 'Clock and Watch Maker'. On January 6th 1840 Jane ALEXANDER married John RICHARDSON in the Parish of St. Saviour, York. Robert ALEXANDER is entered as living in Heworth Moor at the time of marriage, and is described as 'Clock Maker'. Looks as though the family moved around a bit. Any clues as to his life in Belford, his marriage to Ann etc. would be gratefully received.
