Can you help regarding old residents of Ushaw Moor

February 10, 2012 1 comment

I am trying to find information regarding two aspects of my family tree which impact upon Ushaw Moor and would appreciate any guidance – either about names , locations or even where you think i may be able to find more ?
1,McCardle family from 1900 onwards
The 1901 census record this family in 1901 in South View Ushaw Moor – though by 1911 they are recorded in Hepple St in New Brancepeth Colliery .
By 1911 Patrick is married to Margaret and they have 4 children : Rosie A ; Alice James and Joseph

I believe Alice went on to marry James McCaffery see next paragraph and died in 1924.
I would be interested in any memories or contact with descendants who can help me flesh things out
As mentioned above I belive James (Francis) Mccaffery spent some time mining at Ushaw Moor Colliery amongst other things .Through marriage to Alice McArdle I believe they had two children Gerard and Lawrence Leo and he remarried Jane Craggs in 1926 . I believe they spent some /all the time until 1950’s and James death at/near Ushaw Moor (7 Hall Avenue )

Both James and Jane I believe are buried in St Joseph’s Church but as I don’t live locally its difficult on check
In both situations i would appreciate any memories or contacts I could follow up by email to help me flesh some things out

Bearpark In 2001 via Willington Town Hall!

If you go into Google [world not just UK] and search  –  Willington Town Hall – up comes Willington Town Hall at about five items down the page.

Now click on it and scroll down a few pages. There you will see lots of census 2001 facts about the people of Bearpark. Good stuff. After all we occasionally do bits about other than the Moor and this is one more!
