I noticed your post re Bainbridges in the North East
My mother's family were Bainbridge, based in Middlesbrough and County Durham:
John Charles Bainbridge (d.1959) m Louisa Josephine Kelly (d.2001) in 1930 (my grandparents). He was also the owner of the firm J C Bainbridge Ltd in Hartington Road. John Charles Bainbridge, a widower, (snr) m Alice Jackson around 1900 (my great-grandparents)
I am wondering whether we have common ancesters? John Charles senior worked as a blast-furnace man, but I have no information on any siblings or antecedents.
