David, Thank you ever so much for that news and info. It's brilliant. You asked where I got my info and dates from regarding the Fishwicks, well, it came out of a very old family bible that my Grandma still has.A couple of the dates are slightly out but with the help of birth certificates etc. I've managed to get a couple corrected. Here are all the dates that I have for the Fishwicks at that time: William Fishwick,(my GGGGrandfather) b.6th Aug 1844 m. Esther 21 December 1866 Esther d. 19 May 1877 aged 31 Children: Ann Fishwick, b. 21 July 1867 John Fishwick, b. 10 April 1874 Joseph *Cox*, b. 29 December 1874 (have his Birth Certificate) Elizabeth Fishwick, b. 25 September 1880
William Fishwick m.Ann Maria Cox, 22 July 1877 Children: Mary Ann Fishwick,(my GGGrandmother) b, 17 April 1883 Emma Fishwick, b. 27 June 1887 William Fishwick, b. 9 September 1885 Thomas Fishwick, b. 23 March 1889 Sarah Jane Fishwick, b. 31 August 1896
William Fishwick, the elder d.8 February 1916 Ann Maria, d.9 April 1922
Ann Maria's maiden name is Trow. (I don't know where that name comes from) She married Samuel Cox (?) they lived at Quarry House, Lanchester, Durham.
I hope that all these dates are of use to you and if there's anything else that you need, if I have it, you can have it.
