  • Name George BROWN 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born
    • The fact he named a son Josiah suggests he was closely related to the Josiah Brown who had children baptised in Earsdon at a similar time to George. Looking for Josiah's origins, he would appear to have been baptised in Bedlington, the son of Francis and Jane. George named his first daughter Jane and his first son Francis. I think there can be little doubt but that he was the son of Francis and Jane, although I have found no baptism record.

      Date estimated from the date of his marriage to be about 1720; taking into account the dates of baptisms of the children of Francis and Jane I think most likely about 1724. Looking for all baptisms in Bedlington of children of couples called Francis and Jane there is a George Bone who fits perfectly.
    Baptised 5 Jan 1724/25  St. Cuthbert’s Church, Bedlington, 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 FamilySearch, shows George Bone, son of Francis and Jane Bone.
      There was no Bone family with these names in Bedlington; I am sure that Bone must be a mis-recording or mis-transciption of Brown.

    • Recorded when his son Josiah was baptised, and when George was buried. (He had probably lived there from earlier, perhaps all his life, but the BTs only survive from 1762 and I have not had a chance to see the PRs).

      In addition to the children shown a Francis, son of Francis was baptised in Tynemouth in 1730 and Frances, daughter of Francis, in Earsdon in 1733; I think these were probably both children of a different Francis (the dates would suggest that)

    • From FamilySearch
      Shoes George Brown married Ann Stohoe.
      (not clear whether date, shown as 1747, OS or NS - FS has a mixture of the two)

      Stohoe only seems to exist as a mis-transcription; I believe the name should be Stokoe. (Also, she is recorded as a Stoko in Boyd's marriage index)
