red mail Looking for Elizabeth LAMB
Our family Bible contains an entry for the death (but not the birth) of Elizabeth Lamb who 'died June 23rd 1885 aged 14 years and 9 months'. The odd thing is that our family name is Smith- and she is the only 'interloper', except for those who married in. The family were almost certainly living in Morpeth at the time, and there is evidence that Elizabeth lived with them, although there is no indication of her being servant or relation, and I don't think that the death of anyone loosely connected would have been recorded. I have found various possible birth records which could be hers, but no death record, even searching more widely than Northumberland. We have a family mystery and I wonder if Elizabeth could provide a key to it, so would like to find out more if anyone recognises the name. I think she was most likely born in Northumberland (Bellingham looks possible) but Durham could also be a possibility. A link with the Laws family could also be possible.

red mail Snowdon/Dalking
I am searching for a Robert Snowdon, believed born 1864, the first mention of him that is official is on his marriage certificate where he gives his age as 21 and his father as Thomas Snowdon, Police Constable, deceased. The next mention is the 1891 census when he gives his age as 26 and his birthplace as Scotswood Northumberland. However, the only Robert Snowdon I can find is one born to an Ann Snowdon who is living in Morpeth Workhouse. OK I can accept that he lied on the previously mentioned certificate and census, but where is he in the time between birth and marriage? He is later shown as having added Dalking to his name, and my mother remembers him as Robert Dalking Snowdon. Anyone any ideas?
