No Story Too Small – Amy Johnson Crow’s challenge of 52 Ancestors this year, has been the inspiration to writing up my family history stories.
George DAWSON my 4x great grandfather, was born in Shield Dykes, Northumberland.
In 1806 at Lesbury, Northumberland, he married Jane GUTHRIE.
The couple had nine children all born at Lesbury.
Andrew in 1806, Ann 1808, James 1810, Jane 1813, George 1815, Isabella in 1818, John 1820, John 1823 and Thomas 1825.
On the baptism entries, George is listed as a husbandman.
However, in both 1841 and 1851 the family is living at Amble, Warkworth, Northumberland and George is an agricultural labourer.
He dies in 1853 at Amble, Northumberland.
