My ancestor, Joseph Bowden, b. 1796, Sunderland, Durham married Jane Barras(s) in 1822 in Houghton Le Spring, Durham. Jane's parents were probably Ralph Barras(s) and Mary Whit(e)field from Northumberland (m. 1798). Jane's grandparents were probably Ralph Barras(s) and Alice Milburn from Tynemouth, Northumberland. There are many people named Barras(s) in this vicinity at this time. I will appreciate any information that anyone has. Thanks.
