Well it’s been a while since I posted on here. Its not that I have not been doing anything related – just not getting round to posting about it. Much of it is “behind the scenes” stuff, trying to make sense of some of what I already have.
This has been particularly true of the page about Sunderland and the civil engineers who worked on the development of the harbour.
Then of course I lead myself down little side alleys that, though interesting, don’t actually move us very much forward.
This is true of some marriages I found in Sunderland from Boyds Index. the first is Hannah Shout to George Wilkinson in 1779, then Elizabeth Shout married Thomas Watson in 1782 and lastly Lanyell (or Lanial or Lionel) Shout married Mary Shepherd (or Shipherd) in 1811.
If anyone has information relating to any of them please get in touch!
