Notes In 1821 he was a miller in Aycliffe, DUR; between 1823 & 1843 he was in Bishopton, DUR as a labourer (on one occasion at a mill). In 1851 & 1860 he was a railway labourer in Greatham, DUR, but the 1851 census does not give an exact place of birth so his origins remain a mystery. See link following for some of the possibilities.
