Notes on maternal ancestors of Marjorie Gibbon nee Humphrey.

There are links from these notes to each person's Wikitree profile, which includes all sources and notes and links to other family members, and for the more recent people there is often a photograph. On the Wikitree profiles, anything underlined is a link, and the boxed 'Ancestors' and 'Descendants' show a tree of ancestors or a list of descendants. Profiles of living people are private, try person 2 or 3.

Ancestors are listed using the Ahnentafel numbering system. Person 1 is the root of the tree, their father is number 2, their mother is number 3. For anyone in the tree, their father's number is double their number, and their mother's number is double their number plus one. When someone is referred to who has an Ahnentafel number, I have preceded their name with # and their number.

Children of #4 Robert Robinson and #5 Margaret Fallow (Thomson) Robinson:
  1. John Robinson (1881-1954), born in Seghill in 1881, married Emma Ellery (Stoker) Robinson (1884-abt.1970) in 1906, registered in Tynemouth. John was a coal miner. Father of Cousin Billy John William Stoker Robinson (1919-1962) who served in WW2, suffering an injury on the beaches in Normandy and waking up in the UK.
  2. Robinson-28673|James Robinson PhD (1884-1956), Jimmy, radar pioneer. Jimmy was a pupil teacher in a school in 1901, age 16. He did his PhD in Germany, then was head of the wireless section of the Royal Air Force and was involved in the development of radar. He worked in the Stenode Radiostat. Jimmy married Beatrice Mary (Buckley) Robinson (1885-abt.1961) Trix on 28th July 1914 at Tynemouth.
  3. Ethel Robinson (13 Jan 1887-13 Dec 1973), born in Seghill. Ethel wanted to be a teacher. As the only daughter in the family she had to stay at home and help mother. We think she had a sweetheart who was killed in WWI, and she never married. Ethel left home, (some uncertainty about the order, was she with Mrs Buckley or in Edinburgh first?) to be live-in housekeeper to Mrs Buckley, her sister-in-law Trix's mother. When Ethel's brother Billy's wife Lillian died (probably in childbirth), Ethel moved to live with Billy in Edinburgh and helped to bring up his daughter Margot. When Billy married his second wife, Netta McKenzie, Ethel moved to Graham Park Road, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, where she was housekeeper for Miss Bell, Heiress of Bero flour. Miss Bell died and Ethel bought a house in Whitley Bay, Northumberland, taking in paying guests until she became too old. At this point, her brother Robert and his wife Kathleen sold their house in Woodbine Road, Gosforth, paid off Ethel's mortgage and moved in with her - she had upstairs rooms until her death on 13 December 1973. After Ethel died, Kathleen (now widowed) had a paying guest, Miss Heckles. Ethel had a reputation for putting her foot in it. At one time she had a lodger, Leonard from Scandinavia, who worked for Thomas De La Rue, maker of playing cards. She enjoyed playing cards, particularly bridge and whist, and whenever she had the ace of spades she was pleased to see the company logo and would cry out 'Ah, Thomas de la Rue', giving away one of her key cards. Ethel was a lovely lady, kind, gentle and sweet.
  4. William Eward Robinson (1889-) born in Seghill. Billy married Lilian (Sopwith) Robinson (1886-abt.1920) in 1919. She died probably in childbirth in 1920, when Margot was born. Billy married Janet 'Netta' MacKenzie, with whom he had two children, Kenneth and Ethel Elizabeth - Cousin Liz.

By 1861 the family had moved to Northumberland, England, living in Holywell then Seghill. The last record I can find for Mary is the 1871 census, I do not know when she died.

Marion and Alexander moved to Northumberland at around the same time as the rest of the family and had at least two children, Hector Dow (1859 - ) and Agnes (Dove) Skelton (1874 - ). They seem to have changed their name to Dove once they lived in England.Alexander had been a soldier in the Crimean War, probably in the 93rd (Sutherland Highlanders) Regiment of Foot.

The sampler made by #5 Margaret Fallow Thomson Margaret made a sampler dated 1860, when she was 10. It includes the alphabet and numbers plus flower, bird, animal motifs and a ship and maybe a portculis. There are a series of initials, I think they are:

JT - father #10 James Thomson (1805 - 1875)
MT - mother #11 Mary (Robertson) Thomson (abt.1813 - )
WT - eldest brother William John Thomson (1834 - )
MT - eldest sister Marion (Thomson) Dow (bef. 1835 - )
AD - older brother in law Alexander Dow (1835 -), married Marion in March 1858.
TT - older brother Thomas Thomson (abt.1839 - )
JT - older brother John Thomson (1841 - )
JT - younger brother James Thomson (1852 - )
AT - youngest brother Andrew Thomson (abt.1855-abt.1907)
DT - ?
HD - nephew Hector Dow (1859 - ), son of sister Marion born 1859
WT - Paternal Grandfather William Thomson (abt.1765-)
MF - Paternal Grandmother Margaret (Fallow) Thomson (bef.1766-)
TR - Perhaps uncle Thomas Robertson, mother's brother, lodging with the family in 1861 after they had moved to Northumberland.
MD - ?
also ML above - ?
It might be more logical if TR and MD at the end are Margaret's Maternal grandparents - names unknown at the moment. DT might be the child of the eldest brother, currently unknown.

12 Jonathan Robinson (3 Jan 1811-1883) son of #24 (= 16) John Robinson (abt.1780-) and #25 (= 17) Isabella (Dixon) Robinson (abt.1780-), older brother of #8 John Robinson (bef.1813-1891). Jonathan was the third son, born on 3rd January 1811. The family lived at Path Head, near Ryton, County Durham. Jonathan married Jane (Horsley) Robinson (abt.1816-abt.1845) on 14th November 1836 at All Saints, Newcastle, Northumberland. They had two children born in Seghill then moved to Derby where their youngest daughter died and third child was born. Jane died a couple of years later. Jonathan married #13 Jane (Hann) Robinson (abt.1815-1897) a couple of years later in 1846 in Seghill. They lived in Seghill in 1851, Jonathan working as a Deputy Colliery Overman. Jonathan and Jane had four children, the first two were girls who died young (ages 22 and 10, approximately). By 1861, the family lived in Hetton Le Hole where Jonathan was a grocer and draper, a business that his sons helped with. Jonathan died in 1883 in Hetton, age 72.

Family story tells that the man who left mining and opened the grocery shop did so because his wife's father had died in the mine and she said 'no son of mine is going down the mine'. No evidence that #13 Jane (Hann) Robinson's father (#26) died in a mine. Perhaps Jane Horsley's father William Horsley was a miner.

13 Jane (Hann) Robinson (abt.1815-1897) daughter of #26 Christopher Hann (abt.1772-1849) and #27 Ann (Horsley) Hann (abt.1779-1857). Jane was born in Wallsend in about 1815. She married widowed #12 Jonathan Robinson (1811-1883) on 22nd December 1846 at the Wesleyan Chapel in Tynemouth when she was 31. She became step-mother to his two surviving children, Isabella (Robinson) Appleby (1838-aft.1901) and William Horsley Robinson (1842-1924). Jonathan and Jane lived in Hetton where they ran the grocery shop. They had four children, their two daughters dying young. Jane lived with son Christopher's family in Hetton after he married in 1889 and the death of her husband in 1883. Jane died in Hetton in 1897, age 82.

Jonathan was a grocer at the time of the 1871 census, then a bookseller - in 1881 he opened a book stall in the centre of Newcastle specialising in books concerned with the Occult. He was considered a 'Celebrity of the Movement' of Spiritualists. The book stall was a success, trading until 2014. William married Ann (Langley) Robinson and they had four children, who carried on the business. Their grandchildren donated money to Newcastle University for the building of the Philip Robinson Library and the Marjorie Robinson Reading Rooms.

John was very musical? John and Polly had no children? He died in 1938, a couple of years before his wife.

Close family relationships? Brothers #8 John Robinson and #12 Jonathan each married a Miss Horsely, #9 Ann (Horsley) Robinson (bef.1817-1873) and Jane (Horsley) Robinson (abt.1816-abt.1845). Were they related? They were not sisters they had different parents at time of christening but may have been cousins.
