Could someone please look up a Mary Elizabeth Metcalf living in Sunderland or maybe Northumberland, born abt 1889 fathers name John, possibly a sister named Margaret, born abt 1883 living with them.

Thanks Jo
 
This is the nearest one I found:

Vulcan Place Bedlington Morpeth Parish of St Cuthbert

METCALF, John Head Married 35 Commission Agent born Netherton
Northumberland
METCALF, Alice Wife 34 born Bidlington Northumberland
METCALF, Mary E Daughter 13 Bidlington Northumberland

There's a Margaret Ann Metcalf marriage June Qtr 1901 Morpeth volume 10b page 84 choices for groom are Patrick Gallagher and Alfred Hall

Thanks a lot woodlander, I can now rule out that Mary Elizabeth from my enquiries.

Everyone in the family is puzzled by my husbands grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Metcalf, later Mary Elizabeth Hunter. Her Marriage certificate states that she was born 1889 in Sunderland but no one can find a birth for her around that year. It's rumoured amongst the family that she was actually born in 1892 but lied about her age so she could marry my husbands grandfather. To make things even more difficult it is also rumoured that she was adopted at an early age by an unknown family. All that is known about her is that on her marriage certificate it stated her father as John and that she had an older sister, Margaret Ann born abt 1883:confused:
