This group is causing me some difficulty! According to the 1881 census, Thomas (b 1850 Middlesbrough, son of John and Mary (presume nee) French, he was married to an Elizabeth, not Jane Ferry. He was dead by 1901, when his wife, Elizabeth (who was born in Hexham), was living in Sunderland. The children I have identified are: Ernest, Mary Estella, Elizabeth and John. Perhaps this isn't the right family after all?
