Thanks for your speedy reply. This is all the info that I have on my ALLAN's...
William ALLAN, Head, 58, b. Darlington. Occ. Joiner Ellen ALLAN, wife, 53, b. Yarm. John A ALLAN, son, 23, b. Bishop Auckland. Occ. Iron Labourer Margaret ALLAN, dau, 22, b. Yarm. Occ. Serv out of Employment *James W ALLAN, son, 17, b. Yarm. Occ. Iron Labourer out of Employment Mary A ALLAN, dau, 11, b. Middleton St George Ada ALLAN, G Dau, 2m, b. Darlington.
They were living at 17 Westmorland Street, Darlington.
(1901) *James William ALLAN, Head, 37, b. Yarm. Occ. General Dealer Annie ALLAN (nee McFadyean), wife, 26, b. Darlington Lillian ALLAN, dau, 8, b. Darlington William Arthur ALLAN, son, 5, b. Darlington James Appleton ALLAN, son, 3, b, Darlington
They were living at 29 South Street, Harrowgate Hill, Darlington.
I don't know where the Appleton name comes from. It's not my Annie McFadyeans side, so maybe it's James Williams mothers (Ellen ALLAN) maiden name.
Also I am connected to another ALLEN family (spelling different)...
Mary Jane ALLEN m. John EVANS in 1871 at Stockton. They are both from Wales and their fathers are... John ALLEN and John EVANS. All of Mary Janes and John;s children were born in Middlesbrough.
