It seems that from 1839 to 1885 some Heddon residents found it necessary
to cross the River Tyne by ferry in order to catch the train at Ryton
station.

I understand that a ferry accident 26 March 1877 caused three deaths,
one being a 17 year old named Mary Ann DALE .

Would any lister know the names of the other victims please?
