In the event I don't hear from Billy and I only get a chance to look at this website on a weekend. Here is what I have found while researching the records stemming from the inheritance records of Anne Roy. |
She married William Roy in 1972. Her name on the marriage record is Ada Anne Thompson, born 16 March 1927, William Roy, was born 10 Jan 1927. I don't know if Thompson was her maiden name or if she was widowed when she married William Roy. They lived in Hebburn.
Her husband, William Roy's father was Alexander Roy, born 9 Feb 1901. They lived on Campbell Street in 1939.
Alexander Roy's parents were William Roy, born 1862 in Banff, Scotland, and his mother, Mary Jane Stewart, born 1864 in Keith, Scotland. Alexander's siblings were James, Emily, William, Maria and Mary. As of 1911, the Roy family were living at 52 Charles Street, Hebburn.
I have found a family tree associated with this family, however, the information is locked and the owner apparently lives in Australia and is an extremely distant relative!!
My intent was to find a closer relative in or nearby Hebburn.
Let me be clear, I'm not looking for any monetary reward, I just want to help the people from my original hometown.
