If you obtain a copy of the death certificate for Samuel Muscroft in 1873 it may give you more information.

Deaths Mar 1873
Muscroft Samuel 44 Gateshead 10a 476

This could possibly be your Samuel b1829

Transcribed as Murpose reads Musgrove possibly should read Muscroft

This is my family for sure .
However. their have been a lot of mis-spelling errors.
Murpose and Musgrove should read Muscroft and the 1861 Census Margaret Lighthous should read Stonehouse. Regarding Murpose can not get any help at all.

Margaret Hannah married Thomas Evans who died then she married Andrew Stonehouse who died then she married Samuel Muscroft (My Great-Grandfather)who died 1873 My grandfather Samuel was born 1871
Thank you for your help
