Looking for DONKIN of Northumberland
I am currently researching Donkin. I have a direct line back to William Donkin born in Northumberland who emigrated to South Australia in 1854. Born 10 June 1827 at Shilbottle, Father Robert Donkin, Mother Elizabeth?
Robert Donkin is shown in the 1841 Census as a Husbandman at Wood House. It is believed he worked for either the Duke or Earl of Northumberland.
Apart from that I've drawn a blank
