1    Living at Hilltop, Garrigill in 1841, 1851 according to 1841 and 1851 census

2    The 1851 census gives Sarah as head of household. FreeBMD has three John Teasdales dying  between 1841 and 1851 and registered at Alston, but the first two are in 1841 and 1842, leaving the John Teasdale whose death is recorded in the district of Alston in the fourth quarter of 1848.

3    Not found on 1881 census (although there is a Sarah Teasdale, widow, of the right age at Slaley with an unmarried son, John C., 52, and a widowed daughter, Elizabeth S Keenleyside, 37. Keenleyside is very much, though not uniquely, an Allendale name. However Sarah is recorded as having been born at Newcastle.)

4    In the 1861 census for Cumberland there is a Sarah Teasdale, aged 56, sister to John Teasdale of Farnham, Brampton. Unlikely to be the same person. No matching entries in Northumberland, nor FreeBMD deaths 1851-1861.
