'Glimpses of Old Bedlingtonshire' is one of Evan Martin's books that mentions the Fish family who lived in The Neuk in Salmon Place.

Apparently their neighbours were the Haddock family.

Hi Tonyp,

Francis and Jane Heron were in Salmon Place in 1911 with their children Mary 8yrs, Francis 6yrs, Margaret 4yrs and Samuel 2yrs. Jane is shown as 34 yrs from Bellingham.

It appears that Francis Ward Heron married Jane Charlton in 1901 in Bellingham.

Tonyp Salmon Place was just off the Market Place in Bedlington and often called 'The Neuk' or Muggars' Nook' , although Salmon Place was the row of 2 rooms houses and cottages at the bottom of Muggars' Neuk (Muggar is another name for a Hawker)  facing back up towards the Market Place.  The first written evidence of Salmon Place I can find is an advert in the 'Morpeth Herald' 28 February 1880 for a seed list from John Brown of Woodbine Cottage Salmon Place (my 3G uncle)  Salmon Place was recommend for Clearance in 1938 although I found an application in 1944 by Mr. Fred Reed for possession to occupy 1-4 Salmon Place.  I found the entry for your Grandmother Margaret starting school on 20 August 1912, father Francis.  There is also an entry for Francis 1909 father Francis a miner.

    • A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."
