While doing my family history I was looking at the 1911 census which has just come on line, My grt grandad Stephen Vasey who was one of 15 children to Thomas Vasey had previously lived in Dale street Ushaw Moor, he had now got married to Hannah Graveling and according to the census they have moved in with the Graveling family at 343 Broompark, this was a two bedroom house with 14 people living there. What luxuxry we all live in these days.

My Ancestors the Vasey’s

October 30, 2008 2 comments

On the 1891 census My  ancestors the Vasey’s were living at 22 Cockhouse lane, on the 1901 census they were living at 31 Dale st. When my Grt Grandad married in 1909 he was living at 343 Broompark. I remember my Grandad who was born in 1911 saying his dad was one of 13 children and looking at my findings he was right.

I wonder if there are any vasey’s still living in Ushaw Moor today.

Regards Edward Vasey.
