John Telford b. c1803 in Challerton, Northumberland

Dear all,

I have been researching my Telford family tree, and have not yet been able to move beyond my 4G grandfather John Telford, born in c1803 in Challerton, Northumberland.

He married Dorothy Morpeth born c1804 in St. John Lee, Northumberland, and they had the following children:

Ralph b c1827
William b 1829
Margaret b 1835
Lancelot Morpeth b 1842

All were born in Challerton/Hexham/Wylam (I understand that these are in same area of Northumberland)

I am descended from Lancelot Morpeth Telford (Lancelot Telford is now something of a family name!)

Has anyone connected with any of these names? I havn't been able to locate any lines from this family other than my own. I would be very interested to hear from you if you know anything!

With warm regards to all my distant Telford cousins!
