Robert Davidson                                     1817-
Robert was born in 1817, the son of Richard Davison and Mary Carr, at Willington, Wallsend, Northumberland. He was a Trimmer in 1846 and 1849. In 1851 he was a Railway laborer, and in 1867 a Coalminer. He married Elizabeth Ogle in Christ Church Parish Church in Tynemouth, on 16 January 1836. Both were 18 years old.
Elizabeth Ogle                                       1817-
Elizabeth was born about 1817, the daughter of Andrew and Mary Ogle, at Hexham, Northumberland. She was Baptized 25 February 1817, in the Hexham Parish Church. Robert and Elizabeth lived at 19 (and later at 15) Carpenter Street, in Westoe, South Shields, from 1841 through 1851. They moved to Seaham for a while, and in 1871 they lived at 96 Ryhope Street, Ryhope.
I have found the following children:
  Mary A. Born abt 1836   South Shields, County Durham
Andrew Born abt 1837   South Shields, County Durham
Elizabeth Born 7 Jun 1841   South Shields, County Durham Married William Jarrett
Margaret Born abt 1844   South Shields, County Durham

It is interesting to note that on the marriage register and most children's birth certificates, all references
to Davison is spelled Davidson. The census data always lists the family as Davison.
