I have been researching the ancestors of my husband's great grandfather - who was John Thomas Urwin. He was born in England in 1858 - the son of George Urwin. John is listed with the family on the 1881 census aged 22. George's wife is recorded as Mary Ann aged 33 so I figure she is not John's mother! John married Mary Ann Harrogate the following year and came to New Zealand to carry on coal mining. Later they returned to England and John died in 1892 at 5 Tyne View, Lemington, Durham.His death certificate records the attendance of William Devlin - his uncle. Mary Ann returned to New Zealand and remarried. John's father - George was baptised in 1836 at the Methodist High Church, Benwell,Northumberland - son of Hannah and John Urwin- a Pitman of High Crofs.
