Charlton Family Tree

Recommended Posts

hi,im tracing my Charlton family tree and would appreciate any help anyone has

ive traced my tree back to 1698 and right up to the 1960's my ancesters have lived at Bedlington.

their are so many names i could give but one of my main ancesters is my great,great grandad Thomas Charlton born 1807/1808 in Bedlington and died 1884 and buried at st cutheberts.census records shows 1861,1871,1881 living at the market place (opposite the church) which i believe now is a chemist,i also believe he had the premises round the back because he was a carpenter.

my grandad (george trevor charlton) left Bedlington in the 1960's with my gran (isabella 'betty' Charlton nee Oliver) and my dad (Alan) and uncle (David)

any help anyone has will be very much appreciated

thanks

ali

This photo is from 1930, so the buildings wouldn`t have changed that much, if at all :)

Hello Ali,

I don't have any info on the Charltons but below is a photo of the chemist opposite St. Cuthberts Church

http://www.bedlingto...llery&image=281

That's the one Fourgee; formerly Hay's the Chemist (as opposed to "the top[end] chemist" which was Binks). Unfortunately it's off Cympil's picture at the right, but we must have a really old picture of the Vulcan Place / Marketplace corner somewhere.

Betty Charlton / Oliver was definately very well known to our family, as I wouldn't remember the name unless it had been repeated many times. Unfortunately I can't fill in any of the details - it was one of those many things that as a kid you don't connect with, so just becomes part of the background noise. Pity you didn't post this in the 1980's! ;)

The Olivers (and I'm assuming here the same Olivers) were good friends of Dr. Brown's family, and I remember Eileen Brown often inviting them over to Horton Road.

There is another photo of Cympil's in the gallery of Bedlington Market place and Dr. Pit. It looks as if it has been taken from the church tower? and is a bit closer to the chemists than the one posted above. Our house is behind Johnsons shoe shop [the one with the two awnings] and the shop next to it which became Carricks the bakers. The chemists shop [or what would become the chemist] can just be seen in the bottom right hand corner. Could the joiners workshop have been where the estate agent is now on vulcan place right behind the chemist? There was access round the back to the slaughter house between there and Orange's garage [now Tyred and Exhausted]. The roof of the back shop of the butchers can be seen in the photo, the killing shop was just below there as were lairages for cattle, sheep and pigs. Past the garage and up to the old pit road were a row of houses facing the Monkey and backing on to Milnes Field. Those houses were derelict when I was a kid. There was a wall which ran from the back of Carricks down to the wall which can be seen now behind the garage as you go into the car park. Mrs Johnson had that wall and the one that makes the alley with the Howard [ market tavern] topped with broken glass to stop people climing over. When I lived there, the only yard behind the shops belonged to the butcher [my dad was the slaughterman]. I can also remember being in the flat above the chemist many times, the lady of the house was a freind of my mothers.

Thats the one Foxy. It's probably close to the era that Ali is interested in. Those houses on the left are the ones I mentioned that were derelict when I was a kid. The ones on the right were still in use [ some of them anyway] I can remember the kids that lived in them going to the village infants [church infants as some of you refer to it] and then to the whitley memorial when I was at those schools.

Well then we may have met at some time because I lived in the houses on the right with my granny until we moved to the new council estate opposite the cemetry/ridge farm. I think one of the houses on the left was used by the Bedlington Harriers before they were knocked down,I was probably one of the kids that you remember going to the Whitley School,(more clues for Dr Pit aka Inspector Morse)

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
