John Coatsworth (1836-1908)
John Coatsworth (1836-1908) was born at Middleton in Teesdale. He started adult life as a lead miner and later a copper miner but then like several other members of his family he became a grocer. By the time he died he described himself as a gentleman and left over £6,600 including nearly sixty properties (most in Lingdale) in his will.
He married Martha Collinson (1841-1901)
who was born at Wemmergill Hall, Lunedale.
John and Martha married at Middleton in Teesdale on 11th July 1861 and had seven children,
Sarah Ann (b. Kirkby Ravensworth 1862-1883)
Mary (b. Kirkby Ravensworth 1863) who married William Oliver

Minnie, Arthur and Ida Russell
Quick family tree... Freda is daughter of Bill Hill and Ida Hill. Brothers were Norman, Alan, Harry and Aubrey. Bill died very suddenly in 1964, and Ida died about 1982. Bill was a miner, I think finishing at Kilton, maybe about 1960.

Where? Help Please
Here is an old photo which I believed to belong to one of my ancestors, who lived in Lingdale...but can't be exactly sure. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind posting it to see if anybody recognises it?

Martha Coatsworth (nee Collinson)
The photo is of Wemmergill Hall, Middleton-in-Teesdale where Martha Collinson (John Coatsworth's wife) was born. I believe the Hall was demolished in the 1920s.
I have been very interested to read the information supplied by Shirley John about John Coatsworth & family. The Coatsworths were our great grandparents.
Our grandparents were their daughter Mary Coatsworth (d 1953) & William Oliver (d 1947) who lived in Westgate, Guisborough. William was only allowed two days leave from his work for the wedding so they married on Christmas Day 1897 to have a four day honeymoon! Their children were John Coatsworth (1900-1957), Martha Winnifred 1901-1994) & William Ewart (1903-1983.
Minnie Coatsworth married Arthur Plews, a grocer in Westgate, Guisborough. They had five children Graham (who was killed in North Africa during WW2), Arthur (a long time employee of Reckitt & Coleman), Minnie & twins Norman & Nora.
Gordon Coatsworth Oliver
I am curious to learn about Levi Coatsworth in this photograph.
It is annotated, P O Box 101, Coatsworth, Kent County, Ontario & he is shown on the Canadian 1881 census as having been born in England in 1815.
Gordon Coatsworth Oliver
Dear Gordon Oliver
I am pleased or rather hopeful to say after a fair amount of digging, I have found the connection between our two branches. This was all prompted by the photo of Levi Coatsworth that you posted on the Lingdale website. I recognized the name immediately as it was one of my great great uncles (if there is such a thing). But I could not have said who he was in relation to the Lingdale Coatsworth's without the information and photos that you forwarded me. With those I was able to cross reference Eva M Coatsworth book 'The Descendants of Thomas Coatsworth and Mary Bainbridge' and find the connection.
Here is the gist of it:
Thomas (married in 1692) and Mary had three sons:
John, William, and Joseph. William (1695) had three sons: William (1720), Joseph (1725) and John (1729). William is the great great grandfather of Levi and John is the great great grandfather of Mary Coatsworth (daughter of John), who married William Oliver -- your grandparents, I believe.
Levis' grandfather Robert (my g g g granddad) and his three brothers emigrated from Northumberland around 1817 on the same boat. Two settled in Buffalo to have great success in the milling business (you can google Thomas and see his mansion there), and the other two settled near here on the shores of Lake Erie, Ontario, Canada - a village that is still called 'Coatsworth'.
Levi was born 1854 to a family of eleven children - he never married; was a carpenter and builder and poet. He built the veranda around my father's house for my great grandfather - they would have been cousins. And we still use two tables he constructed. He did return to England to visit his extended family, as many of us still do, although it is much easier now, and I suppose the photograph you have is the fruit of just such a visit. He died in 1931 and is buried twelve miles away from where I write in Chatham Ontario.
Sincerely Tom Coatsworth
Blenheim Ont. Canada

Stiffs & Scarths by Mandy Hankin
|George Stiff born 1857, Hintlesham, Suffolk married Hannah Normington 1875 in Pickering district (suspect Rosedale Abbey). George died 16 Aug 1904 Lingdale Mine (info taken from Cleveland Mining Incidents, vol3). George and Hannah had 11 children that I know of, one of them being my great grandfather, Raymond Stiff, born 1897 in Brotton, he married Jospehine Thompson 1921, he died 1986.
Raymond and Jospehine had 6 children, one being my grandfather Raymond Stiff born 1924, and lived much of his younger life in Lingdale. He married Patricia Scarth in 1950, and Patricia was born 1929, only child to Ronald and Evelyn Scarth. They lived at Hareslack Farm in Castleton, infact Patricia's eldest child was born on the farm.
Ronald and Evelyn sold their farm, and moved to Loftus, and bought a corner shop. Any connections, or memories for either families would be appreciated.
Please email using the email link at the left hand side.
I have found out I am related to this family (family of 7 members) the Head of the house was my 3rd Great- Grandfather John, who was a railway signalman. They lived at Claphow cottage number 1.
If anyone has any pictures or details of my family, please contact me at: email@example.com
Message from Karen Daniels
Hi, searching for any known information about the Watsons. My dad Keith and his sister Jill were sent up to Yorkshire to live with family when they were young. He remembered Wharton Cottages and maybe living next door to the Knaggs? Their house was near the Chapel. His father George Watson had two sisters, Marianne and Marjorie. Marianne we believe married Jack (John) Kitchen but we can find no info about Marjorie. Maybe someone can help? With many thanks, Karen.
please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any replies and I will forward onto Karen
I have just found out my family lived at 30 Dixon Street in 1911 and my great grandfather worked as an iron stone miner at the local pit, I just wondered if you had any more information or if anyone remembered the family, I believe his father might of also lived on Dixon street.
My great grandfather was called Albert Reap and his wife was Harriett, I think his father may be George Reap.
Any information would be gratefully received
please email email@example.com and I will forward on any replies.
Thank you Alison
