    Notes 
    • The place of birth given in 1911 is Blackboy - this is on the outskirts of Bishop Auckland so ties in with the evidence from earlier censuses that Robert was born in Bishop Auckland. That he married a Whitburn girl and then lived in Marsden fits in with the move of the family to this area, so I am happy I have the correct Robert Robinson.
      Shown as b Blackburn, Lancs in 1891 census but clearly the same family as 1901 and 1911 censuses where he is shown as born Blackboy.

      Living in 2 rooms at 9 John Street, Whitburn in 1891 with wife and 3 children.
      In 3 rooms at 2 James Street, Marsden Colliery, Whitburn in 1901; at same address in 1911.

      With first 3 of 5 children (1891), with all 5 (1901) and last 3 (1911). 1911 census shows Robert and Hannah had had 7 children but 2 had died.

    • Research notes



      Looked hard for the marriage in the index on FreeBMD. TO DO: look at the local indexes in case mistranscribed to the central ones (or to FreeBMD)

      Could Margaret have married and been widowed and then married James?

      3 Margaret Em(m)ersons married in the period 1857 - 1860,
      one in Southwark RD, very unlikely, one in Guisbro RD, not very likely, one in Sunderland - quite possible (q2 1859).
       
      Latter was to a Joseph Walker or George Baker.
      What's more, I haven't found Joseph or George with a wife Margaret in the 1861 census suggesting one of the couple had died (though of course, esp given that the marr was in Sunderland, they could have been at sea, and I haven't searched thoroghly for mis-transcriptions etc.) 
      Marriages of a James Robinson to a Margaret, 1857 - 1861 include one of a Margaret Baker (but q2 1858 so can't be Margaret widow of Geo as they weren't even marr by then!), one of a Margaret Walker; no surnames matching those in the Guisbro and Southwark marriages.
      Marriage to Margaret Walker was q1 1861, Skipton. 2 snags - Skipton abt 90 miles from Washington and after the birth of Ruth, who was registered as a Robinson, not Walker. There were a no. of James and Margarets in or nr Yorkshire in 1861, incl one in Skipton, who could probably have been the couple who married in 1861 - I haven't checked them thoroughly (e.g. children), BUT I haven't found the Skipton couple in the 1851 census and they don't have any children, despite both being shown as aged 39 in the 1861 census, so I suspect it was them who married in Skipton RD, not my James and Margaret.
