Notes

1    Note that the 1881 census describes Robert as born at Benwell (?) - His younger siblings are listed as Elswick

2    In the 1911 census Margaret states she has had a third child who has died.

3    Alan is a Swindale, mother's maiden name Ross, but the 8 year gap raises reservations. However this is the only Swindale / Ross marriage. Also see 1939.
