my great great grand father Thomas Prest born June 1850 in Sacriston Co.Durham married Elizabeth Wills Dec 1873 in county Durham prob. Stanhope Weardale? she was the daughter of William Wills and Jane Harrison and was born June 1850 Stanhope Weardale.

Thomas and Elizabeth had children.

Henrietta b Sept 1883
Margaret Elizabetn b Sep 1885
Thomas born march 1888
Ruby Mary Dec 1889
George Robert Harrison b. March 1892
Catherine born 1894

Francis married a Thomas Conlon
Henrietta = James Armstrong
Margaret Elizabeth = James Hodgson
George Robert Harrison = Grace Crow=== my line
Catherine = Joseph E Spenceley

Thomas died 14/10/1903 at Binchester colliery in the engine room many people thought it was a tragic accident a later postmortem revealed he died of natural causes

Thomas's parents were James Prest born abt 1828 Durham ? and Sarah A Hardcastle born abt. 1830 ? Lanchester they married in Dec 1849 when Sarah was 3 months pregnant with her first child THOMAS

James and Sarahs children were
