Looking for Thomas FALLA of Belford

Journal by 37christine

I am look for any information regarding Thomas FALLA who died in Belford, Northumberland in 1811 at the age of 75. He was a shepherd. He had a son called Selby FALLA born 1783 Kirknewton. The records for the Bishop Transcript and Parish Records are not available for Selby FALLA so I am unable to get a copy of his baptism. I don't know anything about Thomas FALLA apart from the above. I wondered if he may have come to Belford from Scotland. I have found FALLA families in Lillisleaf, Roxburgh, Scotland and wondered if there may be a connection. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
