So your cousin probably visited from 1955 onwards..and that "Malcolm" wasn't me. I was born in 1956, but I wasn't aware of my mothers' Lavery background (nor was she) until the late 1970's, when she got a surprise visit from her sister, whom she never knew exhisted. My mother was adopted at birth. Her real father re-married, and moved to Wakefield around 1925.
So any Laverys' around Tyneside in the '50's or 60's wouldn't have known of any connection with my mother, who was raised as a "Kirtley".
