Family Search – Carr

I am trying to find decendents of the Carr family. My great grandfather Thomas Carr was living in Ushaw Moor when he died at 18 Dale Street this was in 1903. His son in law John Wm Lambton of 11-Albert Street registered the death.

I have memories of visiting relatives when I was a child which would have been in the late 1940’s early 1950’s.  He had a son Joseph who was my grandfather, he married an Eliza Charlton. Thomas was married to Margaret Wilkinson.  If any one has any information about this family I would be grateful to hear from them.

    I have been researching my family tree and have links to the Wilkinson family.
    I have linked to a Margaret Wilkinson and have great grandfathr called wilkinnson.
    Would your Margaret be Margaret Wilkinson, daughter of John Wilkinson and Mary Bland was born in 1904 in Esh Winning, Durham, England.???
    If so I am happy to send you all the ancestors I have found, plus some extra info.
    best regards

    Hi Graham,
    In reply to your post about Margaret Wilkinson. Unfortunately my Margaret Wilkinson who was my great grandmother was born in 1852 or there abouts her parents were Robert and Elizabeth , but I know she had a brother called John, so if it was a family name it could be that further down the line your Margaret was born. I could be the same family. If you think so and have more information I would be very grateful to hear of it. I seem to have come to a stop with my great grandfather Thomas and am unable to find who his father Joseph was married to.
    Regards Mary

    Dont know if it is worth much to you but there is a mention of wilkinson also in this recent post and it seems that this person is currently a councilor.
