I am attempting to further research my wife's family history. The earliest history the family shows is of Sarah Jane Bainbridge birth on May 6, 1879, in Old Folds-in-Teesdale, England, to Hannah Bainbridge and Joshua Bainbridge. Sarah is noted as marrying Matthew Ireland at Barnard Castle, England, November 29, 1902. Matthew was born July 1, 1880,at Cronkley, Yorkshire, England to Matthew and Annie Ireland. Annie supposedly died when Matthew was eight days old.
