Ann Lough

A bit of a mystery..  

Died Sept 28th 1849

According to the Newcastle Courant “Mrs. Ann Lough” died on 28th September 1849. We don’t think she was married, however after searching through all the relevant marriage records. She was certainly unmarried when her daughter Mary Ann was born on 17/7/1833, and living with her extended family in Walkergate, at the time. She was also unmarried on the 1841 census.

On the 1841 census she was living with William Lough, aged about 50 (all adult ages were rounded on that census), and a joiner. She was then aged about 30. Another William was present in the house, born in about 1811.  So was a James, aged about 25, and a third William 9 and Mary(Ann) about 7.

It is believed that William senior was the father, living with his sons William and James and daughter Ann, and grandchildren William and Mary Ann, but the relationships could be different!

We know Ann died in 1849 on September 28th and that she died in Walkergate although both the historian, George Tate and Rawlinson’s report say that only one person from Walkergate died from Cholera, and that was Mary Maule, their next door neighbour. Rawlinson’s report says she died in Clayport.
