Connection for Thomas Ramsey - Joseph Embleton


Have found in the 1861 Census for Rothbury the following.

Joseph Embleton 58 Carrier born Hartburn
Elizabeth Embleton wife 59 born Rothbury
Thomas Ramsey son 33 Unmarried born Rothbury
Thomas Ramsey Grandson 10 born Woodhorn.
John Ramsey visitor 55 born Rothbury

I can't seem to find any connection at all. I can't find a baptism for Thomas in Rothbury nor a marriage anywhere for Joseph Embleton to an Elizabeth.

They are in the 1851 Census HO107/2423/F129/p18 with John Ramsay as a lodger but no sign of Thomas.

1871 RG10 5194/F44/p7 Elizabeth has died, John Ramsey is a lodger and Thomas, 44, is a servant along with Mary Ramsay,26 and Thomas Ramsey, 20.

1881 RG11/5138/F5/p3 Thomas is now his son again and is married with children

All theses Census entries are on fs.

John Ramsey, the lodger, was baptised 1806 in Rothbury, parents William Ramsey and Isabel Hoggarth. Also baptised in Rothbury in 1801 was Eilzabeth Ramsey, parents William Ramsey and Isabel Hoggarth.

Thomas Ramsay baptised 24 June 1827 Rothbury mother Elizabeth Ramsay.

Presumably Elizabeth Ramsey married Joseph Embleton but can't find a marriage.
