Note on Wife: Mary TURNBULL - shared note

1. I have the birth certificate for Mary on 27/11/1890 where no father is recorded. Her mother Annie Turnbull is a Finisher at Paper Mill and the place of birth is Blue House Yard, Sunderland.

 

2. I can find no plausible record of either Mary or her mother in the 1891 census, but both appear in the registration district of Chester-le-Street in 1901 and 1911. (See the record for her mother Annie Turnbull for details.)

 

3. Her first marriage (probably) as taken from the BMD index was to John Bradshaw in 3rd Qtr 1909 at Lanchester. Her first 4 children were all Bradshaws.

 

4. She then married James Burke in 1918 and there were a further 6 Burke children.

 

5. Somewhere in the later 1920s or early 1930s the whole family, with the exception of the eldest daughter Margaret, came south to London on one of the miners' 'Hunger marches'. James Burke was able to find work and settle in London, but for a brief period he was unable to support the family and they were taken in to one of the London workhouses.
