Re: Robert Wearmouth of County Durham
We may have a link.I am working with Jane Wearmouth, born about 1822 in England, who married John Fleming and listed in the 1851 U.K. census living in Stanhope, Dunham, England.I have a suspicion that Jane is related to your Robert.
1851 U.K. census shows Jane and her husband, John Fleming living in Stanhope, Durham County, England with infant daughter, Frances and Joseph Fleming Wearmouth (age 3).
John and Jane emigrated to Canada shortly after the birth of son, William (my maternal greatgrandfather) but their daughter Frances never shows up again and I am puzzled by the listing in the 1851 census for Joseph Fleming Wearmouth who does not go to Canada with them.Could Joseph have been the child of Robert and his wife, who the census shows as living in close proximity to John and Jane Fleming - and possibly Joseph was just residing with them for a short time.
In any event, I'm wondering if your Wearmouths and mine are related and of course I'd be happy to share any information I have on Jane.
