The ceremony was witnessed by Robert Dowson and Mary Bell. George was a chargeman and his father was recorded as William Greathead deceased. I am concerned as I thought it was John. Thirza 's father Thomas Littley was a labourer. Both gave their address as Marmaduke Street. Mary Bell was on 1901 living at 10 Marmadule Street with her widowed father John. Robert Dowson was boarding with Thirza's parents in 1901 at 14 Marmaduke Street.6 In the census of 31 March 1901 in South Terrace, Tudhoe, Durham, England, she was listed as the wife of George William Greathead.7 In the census of 2 April 1911 in 125 Craddock Street, Spennymoor, Durham, England, she was listed as the wife of George William Greathead.8 Thirza died in 1936 in Auckland, Durham, England.9
