red mail McPike Family
My grandmother was Mary McPike born c. 1887 in Scotland and died August 1971 in Christchurch, New Zealand. I am trying to trace Nan's family and see a McPike family in the 1891 and 1901 census in Cowpen. The age, place of birth and parents' names fit my grandmother's family. Is there anyone that could help me make certain that the census entries are my grandmother and family? In 1959 or 1960 my Grandmother made a trip back to the UK and met up with her sisters (5 or 6 of them) for the first time in in about 50 years and they had their photo together published in a local newspaper. Would love to receive any information and/or get in touch with relations. Help, please? regards, Lynda
red mail Lee family, Cowpen, Blyth.
Does anyone have information on the following Lee family members, who were siblings of my great grandmother Frances Jane Danielson ( b. 4/11/1882 ) nee Lee all born in Cowpen, Blyth, Northumberland. Andrew b. 24/7/1880, Eleanor b. 1884, John b. 1889-90, George b. 1893-93. Their parents were Andrew Lee b. 25/7/1853 Bank House, Guyzance and Eleanor Charlton b. 4/6/1857 Quay, Wallsend who married in 1875. Father Andrew was a coal screener and the family lived for many years at Hodgson's Mill, Cowpen. The eldest child Christiana Lee b. 1879 married a Henry Duden in 1896. I have a lot of information on Christiana and Frances, but have not been able to track down what happened to the rest of the siblings, although I believe either John or George died during WW1.
red mail albert edward marshall askew
Trying to find out what happened to Albert Edward Marshall Askew. In the 1901 census he was with his mother Eleanor (Ellen) Askew staying with the family of William Henry Raeburn at 85, Salisbury Street, Cowpen, Blyth. There was a boarder in the same house called William Alexander Sommerville, and there is a family connection to the name Sommerville in North Shields, but we are unaware of how this connection actually came about. In the same census, Albert's father Thomas D Askew and his new "wife?" were at Wood Rows, Kyo, Stanley. Any help as to Albert's whereabouts between 1901-1911 would be greatly appreciated.

red mail Wilkinson
At the end of the 19th Century, Robert Wilkinson married Phillis Gledson (in 1882 in Newcastle). Shortly after Robert died, and Phillis Wilkinson with her two sons John and Thomas Wilkinson returned to Cowpen, where she obtained employment as caretaker of the Cowpen Mechanics Institute. She later remarried Joice Turnbull - another miner Thomas Wilkinson appears on the 1901 Census, living at Double Row Isabella Pit, Cowpen, aged 17 I wonder what happened to them - possibly John and Thomas went on to have succesive generations who are now my third cousins.
