209 years ago today

My 3x great grandmother, Margery Hall, was born 3 July 1803 at Elsdon in Northumberland. Margery is the 3rd daughter and 7th of the 10 children of Joseph Hall of Elsdon and Eleanor Thompson of Rothbury Parish. You can read more about her siblings on my Hall page. On 17 May I posted about Margery’s marriage to John Thornton.

Children of Joseph Hall of Elsdon and Eleanor Thompson of Rothbury

I have now confirmed by viewing microfilm of the parish records that my 4x great grandparents Joseph Hall and Eleanor Thompson had 7 sons and 3 daughters. A full list of their children with baptism dates can be found on my Hall page.

(This is my catch-up post for Tuesday 3rd April when I missed my postaday)

Hall of Elsdon

Tonight I have established a page under My family for my Hall ancestors. 3x great grandmother Margery Hall and her father Joseph Hall grew up in the remote village of Elsdon in Northumberland. Joseph takes me back to 1767. I need to take a closer look to see if I can find his parents and to see if Margery was an only child or had siblings.
