  1. Wow, thank you everyone! What a lot of information and I've only just remembered/had time to look back on the site. So lazy with being used to Facebook etc notifiications coming up automatically on my phone and I'm obviously not in the first flush of youth or major techno-savvy. I shall read and inwardly digest all the information you have all provided. I had heard that someone in the family had a step-brother with the surname Farrow so I know I'm on the right trail. Thank you again.
  2. My grandmother Julia Hunt and her brother Charles were both born in Bedlington around 1876/78 but our family had previously lived in Norfolk. They returned to Norfolk when both still children. I'm trying to ascertain why their parents would have moved to Bedlington and think this could have been to work in the mines. I would also like to know what form of travel they would have used both ways and what the conditions were like for families who worked in the mines. Also I would like to find out why they came back to Norfolk. I have established that workers were advertised for in Norfolk and my great grandfather was originally a farm worker/labourer. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  3. My grandmother was born in Bedlington but our family had lived in Norfolk before that and she returned with her family while still young. I’ve not been able to find out much about why they moved either way but presume it was to find work in the mines. Can you help please?
