7 And 8 George Street Ushaw Moor 1901

Richard [a coal hewer] and Jane Brunskill occupied number 7 together with their offspring: Hilda, Hannah, Richard and infant Dora. They had lived in Ushaw Moor for several years.

Edward and Rebecca Heron lived next door at number 8 with their children – Louisa, Thomas, George and John. Like neighbour Richard -Edward was a coal hewer. 

Does any of that jog a memory of family living in Ushaw Moor years ago?

    Hi Wilf, can’t say any of those ring a bell, although I did know a Mrs Brunskill living in a bungalow opp my house, she was a teacher i think, her nephew a Mr. Parker taught me at Durham Sixth Form in the 80’s.

    Where was George Street in Ushaw Moor I can’t find any details about this street.
