Info on my mother's side. My name is Doreen Moran married David Moran. My maiden name is Steel, my mother was Ellen Steel nee Gillespie. My mother was born 26/7/1910. Registered birth Houghton. She died 26/2/1986. My grandmother was a Jane Henderson born 17/1/1876 Sunderland way, but moved to Alliance Street in Stockton as I think my grandfather left her as he moved around shipyards My mother at this time also lived in Alliance Street and then Hind Street, Stockton. My grandmother, Jane died 1952, in Stockton-on-Tees, at my Aunt's house in Newtown Avenue, Stockton, when I was 1. My grandfather was Francis Gillespie I think died around 1940 born around 1880's. He was a caulker in the shipyards but before that he was in the Royal Horse Guards, I think rode behind the Royal carriage had to be bought out. My greatgrandfather was called another Francis and married a Honora or Honour Clarke, her father was called William. They came over to England from County Mayo in Ireland don't know whether they met over there or England but were married in July 1863. Wear Street in Monkwearmouth seems to crop up this could be where they lived in North East of England. My grandfather's mother and father were Patrick and Ann I think he died before Ann came over to England and I think she came to Middlesbrough around 1879.
My grandmother had sisters, Alice (Ali), Emma and brothers George and Thomas can't remember them all.
My mother married a Charles Henry Hutchinson before she married my father Ernest Steel (registered birth Hartlepool) and I would like to chase this side up also. Charles (who got called Harry) and my mam had three children Terry, Eileen & Joyce. He was a furniture dealers assistant at the Co-operative Store, Bishopton Lane, Stockton. His mother was Welsh. I think they got married around 1920's. I heard that he married a Florence Moran after my mam don't know whether they lived in Appleton Road, Stockton. My mother and Charles Hutchinson lived in Alliance Street, Stockton when Eileen their daughter was born in 1937, Joyce the other daughter was born 1939 in Hind Street, Stockton she died this year. Their son Terry now living in Australia was born around December 1930.
The other thing I would like to find out is how do I check the Royal Horse Guards out when my grandfather Francis Gillespie (born was in them I think they had to pay him out.
I think they called Alice's mother and father Jane and Joseph and he was a seaman not sure what type of seaman, fisherman or navy. She was a Jane Slater and Joseph's father was a Henry Duell, a farmer don't have any further info on these. You havn't said whether your cousin in Durham is related to any of these.
Also my mother's brother Frank was in the army I think he served in Normandy how do I find those records out he didn't die in the Army.
Can you help with anything
