Note on Wife: Annie TURNBULL - shared note

1. The first certain documentation about Annie Turnbull is the birth certificate of her daughter Mary, born 27/11/1890 in Blue House Yard, South Bishopwearmouth. No father is recorded. Neither mother or daughter can be found in the 1891 census.

 

2. An entry in the Index to civil marriages suggests that she married John Scott in Sunderland, 2nd Qtr 1891.

 

3. In both the 1901 and 1911 censuses she is living with John Scott and children Mary and John in the registration district of Chester-le-Street. In 1901 she gives her age as 27 and is living in Pump Row, Usworth. In 1911 she gives her age as 39 and is living at 10 Cross Row, Waterloo Usworth Colliery. (So we have a date of birth somewhere around 1872 - 1874.)

 

4. The best guess as to her parents is obtained from the 1881 census in which Annie Turnbull, aged 7, appears as the eldest child of George Turnbull, Sea captain, and Darey Turnbull. The family lives at 16 Harold St., Bishop Wearmouth with 3 other younger children. (There are no other entries in Sunderland for an Ann or Annie Turnbull born 1872 - 1875. There is one other for an Ann Turnbull b.1871. This is a bit old, and note that the person we are looking for was consistently recorded as 'Annie' throughout her life.)
