allegedly born c 1851 in Keswick, Cumberland. (according to the 1881 census
for Co. Durham).
No entry for John in the G.R.O. Indexes between 1848 and 1852 inclusive,
although there is an entry for a John in Whitehaven in the September qtr of
1848 (probably too early).

John's first born a daughter Susan was b. 1870 in (again according to the

Any assistance will be gratefully received.
