Northumberland - Davison & Furlonger

Postby Leally36 » Thu Aug 25, 2016 11:56 pm

Hi All, I am new to the forum and this is my first post, so hopefully I have provided sufficient information to get some help or direction.

According to my research and evidence sourced my 3 x Great grandparents were:

Henry Furlonger (b. 1823 in London and d. 1884 in Alnwick).

Elizabeth Davison was his first wife (b. 1827 although I have no concrete evidence and d. 1855 in Alnwick - unfortunately her birth certificate did not cite her parents. I have come to a brick wall unless I have a guess and pick George and Sarah although there are 2 sets of this family.

Henry was a servant at Alnwick castle for 48 years. I initially had some confusion re his parents and I hope now I am on the correct path with his parents being Jacob Furlonger (an optical turner) and Anne Stratton although that's as far as I can go.
If this is correct they had 3 other children Anne Jane (b. 1821), William (b. 1825), John (b. 1828)

I have been informed that Henry and Elizabeth married over the border at Lamberton Tolls but have not secured any evidence.

There daughter, Jane Davison Furlonger b. 1850 in Alnwick, immigrated to Australia - I have been unsuccessful in finding her on any passenger lists, but she married my 2 x Great Grandfather, Wiiliam Miller in 1882 in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. She died in 1923 and her death certificate indicates she had been living in Australia for 41 years which suggests she arrived approximately 1881.

As I live in Australia I am disadvantaged in not being able to attend any of the services in England. I use various programs such as Ancestry & Family Search and have gathered a lot of evidence.

Any help with taking down the brick wall with Henry and Elizabeth's families would be much appreciated.

Hello
Yes,I can see Henry's second marriage online,(a copy of the Certificate).
It's in Alnwick and gives his father as Jacob a (gas fitter?)
18.11.1855
Henry Furlonger widower s of Jacob gas fitter
Mary Young Marshall spinster d of Andrew malster.
So you've cracked that one.
There's two children from the second marriage Anne 1856 and Andrew 1858 but you probably know that.
The burial for father Jacob at Brixton gives an address of Robert St 15.9.1849 age 54.
There's a possible baptism at St Leonards Heston 22.3.1795 to John and Mary.

Thanks Ciderdrinker,

I received Henry's death certificate in the mail yesterday, and like Elizabeth's the Certificate does not list his parents. So, I suppose I have to go with Jacob and Sarah.

I have saved Jacobs death in Brixton, but trying to tick all the boxes to make sure I am correct.
I still can't find a marriage certificate for a Jacob and Sarah.... So maybe they too went over the border.

Hi again,
Henry marries again in 1855 and the marriage certificate cites his fathers profession as "gas fitter", however, I had assumed Jacob, Henry's father, died in 1849.... Maybe I have Jacobs death incorrect as I would expect he would be "deceased" on the marriage certificate...
Any thoughts?

See my reply elsewhere... Never rely on that item. It's reasonable to assume that if it says "deceased", then he is. (Insert counter examples here!) However, absence of that word does not always mean he's alive.
