  • Name Robert BROWN 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born Abt 1786 
    Baptised 19 Apr 1786  St. Alban’s Church, Earsdon, Northumberland, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • From transcribed data (by Northumberland & Durham FHS, on FMP, 10 Apr 2019)
      Shown as Robert Brown, son of Robert and Catharine, resident South Blyth, father a blacksmith.
      Also from BT entry (image on FamilySearch) shows:
      "Robert S of Robt & Catherine Brown Blacksmith of So. Blyth [April] 19th."
    Gender Male 
    Occupation Blacksmith 
    Blyth, Earsdon, Northumberland, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Occupation Ship Smith 
    • Given as his occupation on his widow's death certificate. According to this Wikipedia article the use of iron instead of wood as the primary material used for ships' hulls began in the 1830s. As a blacksmith I guess it may have been this change of material that led to Robert moving from traditional blacksmith work to being a ship smith.
    Occupation Blacksmith 
    Abt 1825  Iron Works, Bridport, Dorset, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Died Bef 1858 
    • What became of Robert?
      There is no obvious  burial in Dorset (in the CMB for Dorset parishes on Ancestry; a Robert of the right age buried in Loders in 1863 can be ruled out from the census entry for that Robert in 1861 - a locally born farmer). Did he stay in Dorset, move on or return to Northumberland? If he didn't return 'home' with such a common name it is almost impossible to trace him unless a census entry in 1851 or later can be found, with a birthplace of Blyth or Earsdon.

      If his wife's death certificate is correct in describing her as a widow then he died in or before 1858.
