My 3x great grandfather Robert Parkinson died 12 May 1843 at Walker in Northumberland. Robert was a pitman. Robert married my 3x great grandmother Mary Anne Reay in 1819 and they had 7 children that I know of. Their 4th child was my great great grandfather John Parkinson born in 1826 in Walker. The informant on Robert’s death certificate was a William Parkinson. I am guessing that this was his son William born in 1821.

My Parkinson line hits its brick wall with Robert’s birth somewhere around 1792. So if any of you out there has information about his birth or his parents I would be pleased to hear from you. Drop me a message in the comment box and I will get back to you.
