The John Stobart who married Mary Ann Harrison in 1887 and was the father of Jane Isabella (Stobart) Metcalfe (1888-1957) does not seem to be the same man. Census records indicate that that John Stobart was born in Allendale, Northumberland. He is most likely the son of John Stobart and Jane (Robinson) Stobart who was born in Allendale in 1859.
