Possibles from the 1901 census (census parish in bold) :

 William Walton 33 Durham Easington Lane Durham Hetton Le Hole Coal Hewer
 William Walton 33 Merrington Durham Durham Bishop Auckland Green Cartman
 William Walton 34 Cumberland Nenthead Durham Crook & Billy Row Coal Miner Hewer
 William Walton 34 Durham Plawsworth Durham Chester Le St Coal Miner Hewer
 William Walton 34 Medomsley Durham Durham Medomsley Coal Miner
 William Walton 34 Stanhope Durham Durham Ryton Coal Miner Hewer
 William Walton 36 Co Cumberland Alston Durham Medomsley Coal Miner Hewer
 William J Walton 36 Durham Spennymoor Durham Whitworth Coal Miner Under

Looking at the entry in red :

RG13/4698 Folio 117? Page 43 Schedule 117 No 256
Pine Street, Chester le Street

William Walton Head Married 34 Coal Miner Hewer Durham Plawsworth
Margt E Walton Wife Married 29 Durham Broom Farm
Mary Walton Daughter Single 10 Durham Chester Moor
Thomas Walton Son Single 7 Durham Chester Moor
Elizabeth Walton Daughter Single 3 Durham Chester Moor
Catherine Walton Daughter Single 1 Durham Chester Moor

The right number of kids, right age, right wife's christian name. Looks good.

So if the family vanished after William's death, the first place to look would be back at Chester-le-Street I think.

I have replied to your email but just to say in 1901 the family lived in Ryton
I have exhausted my resaerch by going to county hall archives and scoring the web I have found their marriage children  hsi death but nothing of the family later .
originally William came from Stanhope and his wife Margaret Ann from Leadgate I have tried locally in that area with no luck
I am now wondering if they maybe emigrated.
the last record I have is the 1906 electoral role which gives William as living in Newton St of course his wife is not listed as women did not have the vote in those days.
I am also looking for the location of the Primitive Methodist chapel as that is where the funeral service took place along with the Spennymoor brass band being in attandance the Methodist choir also sang.thanks for any info .

Ah yes, have seen that one too now. It's two places below the red one in the list. Didn't get a chance to look at both of them at 5pm.?

22 Algernon Terrace, Ryton

William Walton Head Married 34 Coal Miner Hewer Stanhope Durham
Margaret Ann Walton Wife Married 25 Leegate Durham
Eliza Cribben Sister Single 12 Walbottle Northumberland
George William Cribben Brother Single 21 Grocer Swalwell Durham
Matthew William Walton Son Single 7 Leam? Northumberland
Isabella Walton Daughter Single 3 Walbottle Northumberland
Eliza Walton Daughter Single 2m Ryton Durham


Matthew William, Isabella and Eliza are the children, but there is also a brother and sister of William on the census return.

How did you pick the Ryton one over the Chester-le-Street one?

I chose the Ryton one because of the wifes name on the head stone it states wifes name as Margaret Ann the Chester le street one is Margaret Elizabeth
by the time of his death he had four children but I only have names for three of them because I can not acssesss the next census for 5 years. cheers Soo.t

Interesting stuff.

Cribben is a name that has the highest prevalence in Kent (or at least it was in 1881). By 1998 it was still primarily a Kentish name, with highest concentration around the Canterbury area, although I suspect her ancestry is probably Irish.

Highest density of the name Walton in 1881 and 1998 was in the Darlington area.

Cribben and Walton, as brothers and sisters is curious to say the least, and it seems this is the fault of the census enumerator as they are Margaret's siblings, not William's, becasue there is a William Walton marrying Margaret Ann Cribben? in the Castle Ward registration district in 1895 (June Qtr, Castle Ward 10b 476), so now I agree, the Ryton family is the correct one.? 8)

I see William's death was registered at Sedgefield (Sep Q 1906, 10a 69, aged 39).

Hi just to update I have spoken to Christine whose granfarther was one of the boys saved by William and she says she knows nothing else to add to what we already know.
Cribben is an Irish name but finding records in Ireland is a nightmare.

I remember the Walton family used to live in the house just along from the Masonic Hall in Ferryhill Village. Is my memory correct?

[Edit - I'm getting mixed up here, I think that was a girl called Susan Wright]
