Richard Davison                                  1846-1932
Richard was born at 19 Carpenter Street, Westoe, South Shields, on 5 July 1846, the son of Robert Davison and Elizabeth Ogle. He was a Coalminer. He was 21 years old when he married 16 year old Sarah Jane Thompson on 19 August 1867.







Sarah Jane Thompson                         1851-1938
Sarah Jane was born on 23 October 1851, the daughter of Ralph Kirton Thompson and Ann Pickering, at Sunderland.
(Sarah Graham told me that they had 15 children.)
I have identified 13 children:
