    find a person

    a few months back i posted about trying to find a grave belonging to some babies (my great uncles). On their birth certs it listed the neighbour as the informant of the births and deaths. Is there anywhere or way i can find information on her? I have limited info - Name of E Wheatly, lived at 147 Freehold, west rainton, durham in the of 1917.

    any ideas appreciated. i'm 99.9% certaiin she isnt related but as she was linked to the births i would like to see if i can find any info on her

    I did wonder if you could start with the 1911 census summary books, but the address is incomplete it should be 147 something, Freehold - at a glance can only see Quarry and that appears to be empty

    Here is is in Ancestry
    https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...20_01737-00226 NB the pages are out of order as they have opened out the full sheets.

        freehold was actually the road, it has since been turned into a new housing estate - i asked on the west rainton pages

          in the 1911 census you will see the names of the streets in 'freehold' it seems to be an area. Not sure f you are on ancestry and can follow the link, you need to go to page 10 and onwards you will see Front, Cross, Middle streets, & Quarry & Drapers Row. quarry is the only one that goes as high as 147 in 1911, 147 and in fact 148 are uninhabited. Were your family at 148?

            was checking that out Carolyn. On Ancestry 1911 summary 147 Quarry Row, Freehold, Leamside, W Rainton. Uninhabited residence. Can check 1911 on FMP via address - only 147 with Freehold is Quarry Row

              I put the link in my first post, was wondering if the family in question was at 148 also uninhabited. I find the census summaries handy to see other neighbours...the images are not in page number order.
