I am also looking for CROOKS and BOWMAN connections in Gateshead area.
My grandfather Frederick MARSHALL m. Jane CROOKS, b. Gateshead 05/1841 dau of Matthew CROOKS (b 1809)and Hannah BOWMAN b. Wallsend 1811).
I have them from 1851 Census onwards. But, looking for traces/ decendants of other children William CROOKS (b. 05/1837); John CROOKS (b. 02/1844) m Hannah HOGG 1866; Dorothy CROOKS b. 05/1839; and Mary Ann CROOKS b. 06/1846.

Try the link below its to ancestry and the 1881 census is free.

Thank you Blue Eyes, but I have all 1881 on disc.
The girls may have married by then, but I cannot find any except the JohnC/ Hannah Hogg family, and then not after 1881. As you know 1901 very scrambled names.

Does this look like teh John & Hannah you had in 1881?
1891 census: RG12/4184 pp26-27 13 Cramer Dyke Gateshead
Crooks, John age 47 head metal moulder born Gateshead
Crooks, Hannah age 44 wife Newcastle
Crooks, William 23 son caster (?) Gateshead
Crooks, John G 19 son bricklayer Felling (?)
Crooks, Elizabeth 17 dau dressmaker Felling (?)
Crooks, Mary J 15 dau apprentice milliner Gateshead

Looks like Margery's twin Hannah didnt make it through early childhood :-(

Dorothy and Mary Ann were both still at home with mum and dad at:
Nuns Lane Gateshead in 1861, RG9/3803 (along with siblings William B, John, Jane and Hannah)
111 High Street West in 1871. RG10/5060 p13
A Mary Ann Crooks could have married Ralph Henderson Q2 1872 ref 10a 1074 in Gateshead. And if that were true she could be the Mary Henderson of Mill Square, Wylam, Northumberland in the 1881 census (RG11/5100 p1). Ralph was a blacksmith aged 39, children Emily (8), John William (6), Ralph (3) and twins Robert and Ruth 8 months.

Many thanks for this, Bev.
I had the 1901 Census information, but not the rest.
Best wishes, Don Marshall
