Hi
I am new to this forum :) and would be grateful for any help as I have hit a brick wall with a particular ancestor. I am looking for a William Hodgson born in Durham between 1790-1800. According to a church marriage record at Grindon, in 1817 he is full age and from the parish of Grindon. Alas I have not found him.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Thanks leefer and I know his surname is common enough with out being paried with the equally as common forename of William :). Auckland st Andrew is fairly near but I think it might be too young as he is married in 1817 and it states he's full age (unless he lied :p). I have just found him in the 1841 census and it states he is 35 but then again they rounded the ages up so hes probably born in the 1790's

Hello emrose,

welcome to FHUK.

Ages were supposed to be rounded down in 1841. It's possible he lied about his age. And 'from the parish of Grindon' does not necessarily mean that's where he was born. Does the marriage record list his father? Are you sure you have him in 1841? Do you know when he died? If after 1851 then finding him in 1851 census would be the best move.

Regards,

Dave

Just a note
Grindon I believe, was in the county of Yorkshire as well as a suberb of Sunderland, so it may be worth looking there as well as Durham. Grindon is near to Stockton on Tees
