Ihave been trying for about 2 years to trace Richard Lambert Arkless as part of our family tree. We have two apparently seperate branches of Arkless, both linked through marriage. We have Richard Lambert Arkless, birthdate unknown, who married Mary Warriner, who was a daughter of our father's great aunt, Elizabeth Stearman. The marriage took place on 1 June 1922, record 10a 1689, at the Church of the Venerable Bede in Gateshead, Co Durham.
Richard's Father was named George and Mother Elizabeth.
They had at least 2 children, Violet and Harry, and lived at 15 Backfield Street, Gateshead. Violet and Harry were our cousins and when we were children living in Nuns Lane they both were part of family gatherings. I do not recall them clearly but my sister and brother both knew them well.
Harry married a Jean ? and had a son Colin, and Violet married a Benjamin Scott and had a son Vince.
That is a resume of my knowledge so far. But I have never been able to find a record of Richard's birth or any details further back to link him with John James Arkless who married my GG aunt Mary AnnStearman.
Can you identify with any of these Arkless family members? Norman
