Hi Folks, Came across a lovely middle name Vallentine, it Belongs to a Daisy Vallentine Harvey, she was born 1897 Ovingham Northumberland, her parents were Robert Harvey and Mary formerly Douglass, i would like to think that it came from a maiden name somewhere down the line but where.
It could be Mary's mothers maiden name, or even Roberts mothers, oh i don't know where to start, i know it makes all of this worth while when you come up with answers, i am hitting brick wall after wall :mad: can someone help, i must solve this name before i crack up :( .
Robert Harvey was born 1855 Little Ryle Northumberland, his wife Mary 1857 Highley Shropshire.
Daisy also had a brother Robert Stanley Harvey, Stanley was very unusual in those days i have never come across many.

lots of thanks. :) :)

Hi there - not sure if this will be of any help - after checking the IGI I found lots of Vallentines for Northumberland. [different spellings].There was an Ann Valentine of Ovingham b. 24/1.1807 parents Gustavus Valentine and Ann Robson. could this be a link to Daisy? :)

- forgot to mention children were very often given a middle name that was their mother's maiden surname. This was apparently very common in Northumberland. :)
