1    Marriage and children from the 1901 census. Although this gives his birthplace as Alston, Cumberland, I think this must be the same Joseph.

2    Death at the age of 63 registered at Lanchester in the third quarter of 1922. (Norman Swindle)

3    Marriage registered in the third quarter of 1889 at Hexham.  Death of Margaret at the age of 81 registered in the first quarter of 1944 at 'Durham North'. (Norman Swindle).

4    Birth of Joseph registered in the second quarter of 1859 at Hexham.

5    There is a registration of the birth of a Margaret Ridley in the third quarter of 1861 at Hexham and another in the second quarter of 1862 at Newcastle. The 1901 census entry points to the former.
