Thanks Barbara.

Her parents were Robert and Mary (Douglas), her father was a coal miner.
I know she married William Pearson in 1914 in Hexham, she was 28 he was 30 years old.

Thanks.

Hi
Looking at the actual record does not help. It could be presser or bosses, but the P does look like a B
Also there are two names crossed out on the last census, Andrew William 25 (single) and Maria 23 (married) This gives 9 children alive, there was one other who had died.

It is not uncommon for a person to include all their children on the 1911 census, only to realise they should only put those who were actually in reidence overnight. Andrew and Mary must have been elsewhere.

These are the listed chldren, The missing one looks like Rebecca Jane.
