Notes

1    Information from 1901 census

2    Birth location from 1911 census.

3    A family tree on Ancestry has Ann (Heslop) dying in 1922 but this Annie is a widow according to the probate calendar and therefore cannot be Thomas' wife.

4    The best match for a death for Ann is in 1952 Q2 aged 75 in East Durham district (ie born c1877) but there is a better match in Annie, wife of John Swindle.
