I am at present researching my family name - Fleetham - and the areas we lived in.I live in Northumberland but was born in Co. Durham as was my father, grand-father and great grand-father.
They were born and lived in the South-West region of Co. Durham
mainly in the towns of West Auckland, Spennymoor, Ferryhill, and
the villages of West Cornforth, Pagebank and Byers Green.
They were colliers by trade all their lives.
I have just begun this project, and I will update this page when
I have retrieved more information.
