Re: Help needed in tracing my Jamieson family connection to Grindon Parish

Hi Bill,

Am at a loss on the surname Smithwade for Ellen as this surname is very very rare at this time (1860's). I think that this is an error and may in fact have more relationship to his wife's family or just an educated guess.

Keep Smiling .... Paul

Paul,
Might the name Ellen Smithwade on my great grandfather's death certificate be a corruption of the name Smurthwaite?

Regards,
Bill Jones
