I have been researching my ggrandfather's family, Thomas Bainbridge born anywhere between 1788 and 1791 probably at Haydon Bridge, Northumberland.He married Catherine Wilthew of corbridge, and their children were: John born c.1820 Hexham Northumberland William born c. 1825 hexham Elizabeth born c 1827 hexham Robert born c. 1828 Haydon Bridge/hexham? James born c. 1831 Watchcurrick Farm, Hexham Mary born c. 1835 at Wood Hall Farm, haydon Bridge Jane born c 1836 at hexham Robert born c. 1838 at Newburn George born c. 1838 at Newburn George born c. 1842 at Birtley, Co. Durham.
I found Thomas on the 1841 census at Birtley, Chester-le-Street, Co Durham.And in 1851 at Haydon, Northumberland. Any info on the children - or his wife Catherine Wilthew - would be great.I think the children may have stayed in the Durham area. Also Thomas' parents - I beleive his father was also Thomas Bainbridge. thanks
