You kindly forwarded me information regarding my search for John Pallister from Eighton Banks Gateshead married to Jane Stewart Forbes. Some updates for you and questions.
John was the illegitimate son of Mary Ann Pallister born 31/8/1838 in Windmill Hills in Gateshead(yes they used to have windmills in Gateshead) Her parents were a John Pallister who married a Margaret Watson...how can I find out whether Mary Ann had...
1) Any other children apart from John. 2) Whether John Pallister and Margaret had any other children and when they were married. 3) How can I find where they were married and who their parents were?
In your note to me on 17/02/2003 you said in the census of 1901 there were three other women in the household..Mary Ann 23 who was the sister of John and Susan aged 14 and Jemima aged 4 what are their surnames???
Jane Stewart Forbes.. a bit of information on her..she was the daughter of McKenzie Alexander Forbes (thus the name McKenzie in the family line including my own father) he was a mariner who married a Jane Stewart in 10/12/1849 in South Leith. I know her father was a Charles Stewart but I'm stuck there and I don't know what to do with the Scottish records...any ideas.
As i'm up in the North east in August and Gateshead where would you suggest I start looking for the Pallisters from Windmill Hills.
