Watson Family @ Wansford

Post by liz ford » Sun Jun 23, 2002 4:30 pm

My G Grandmother Mary Jane Watson was born in Wansford 17/4/1845, daughter of Mark, and Mary Watson formerly Dunn. She married Benjamin Pearce approx 1865/68, and moved to Middlesbrough prior to 1870. Any help with the family would be greatly appreciated.

Can you help.

Hi Judith

I certainly have a Gertrude in my tree: Her father John was born in Setterington in 1849, her mother Fanny born 1840 in Hull, she had a brother John born 1873, and a sister Jane 1877.

Her father Johns' father was Marrk Watson born 1807 in Nafferton, and his mother Mary Dunn born 1812 born in Setterington

My mother’s maiden name was Watson, parents lived on “ The Square”, Wansford and l’m thinking of looking up my family tree. Is it possible Mark Watson is related?.
