Hi Dave,

In 1881 George is a boarder with (married sister Jane Jackson) in 1881 occ iron worker, living in the civil parish of Monkton and Jarrow, county South Shields.

I've been through the birth index no sign of his birth registration.

Hello Julie,

Thanks. That narrows it down a bit.

Happy New year.

Must be this one:

Marriages Dec 1854
Bevan Richard Wellington Sp 6a 1486
Clayton Jane Wellington S_ 6a 1486
Gittins Mabel Wellington Sp 6a 1486
Jackson Edwin Wellington Salop 6a 1486


Seems there is no sign of George in 1891 and I still can't find him in shipping records.

Regards,

Dave

Yeah, thanks Gibbo.

Seems no civil registration of his birth. Well, can't be found in the index.

Still don't know when he arrived.
