Am researching family of John Urwin born ca 1790 Northumberland (NBL) England, variously described as engineer and innkeeper, for most of later life ran "Old Duke of Cumberland" on Scotswood Road.
John married (1) Mary (surname unknown), had children Esther b.ca 1821 (married Charles Compton and then Josiah Seymour), John b ca 1826 (alive 1841 more not known), Thomas b ca 1827 (had 3 children with Mary Ann Hall, all died infants, more not known).
John married (2) Mary Nicholson date unknown. They had children Michael and Lucy, (both apparently died inf) and Mary died July 1845 of dropsy.
John married (3) July 1846 Elizabeth Henderson, widow of a Mr Rutherford. They had children Elizabeth born July 1848 (more not known)and George, possibly George Joseph, born Nov 1849 who married Mary Chorley and was my great grandfather.
Elizabeth Urwin nee Henderson died Dec 1855.
John himself died Sept 1857 in his pub, apparently during a drunken brawl at 2 am between 2 women who each thought they were going to be the next Mrs Urwin....
Any information that might tie in would be most welcome.
