Hi,

I'm looking for information about John Theakston and his son Francis. Both were butchers in Northgate, Darlington. John died in 1880 and Francis in 1894. John is my great-great-great grandfather.

If anyone has any info it would be gratefully received.

Thanks
Paula

Hi,
I am looking for information about William and Sarah Ann Harding Theakston who were married in Grey, Ontario on September 8, 1886. I am trying to find out if they had more children after George.
Thanks,

PS I am related to Sarah Ann.

Theakston Family births 1741-1754

I found a page recording a number of Theakstons born in mid 1740-1750's, Benjamin 1741, Frances 1743, John 1744, Mary 1747, Jane 1749, Sarah, 1752 and Francis 1754.
The paper seems to have been torn out of a family book of that era. Are they in your tree?
Thanks

Hi,
I found the familty tree you have on ancestry fascinating regarding Elizabeth Stainsby and Matthew Leng Shut. My mother was Nancy Theakston from Heighington then Darlington. I have some of the same photos you put up, George Theakston was my G Grandfather. I am on a trial on ancestry, email is cliveaaaa@yahoo.com
