Journal by Summers76

My maternal Grandmother was called ELLEN SCANLON born 1885 in Wallsend County Durham England.

She married my Grandfather Thomas Lydon (dob unknown ) in South Shields in 1912. Thomas was born in Kiltimagh Ireland.

They had four children that I am aware of;
Thomas jr...Catherine....Michael....the youngest son Philip died following an accident.
The family lived for a number of years in Prince Consort Road HEBBURN on Tyne, County Durham,.

If you can help with any research on the family, please do post a message any information or details no matter how small will be of great value ....sincere thank you to all who can help...Summer

Update I have a photo showing Ellen Lydon with four of her children, and I am willing to share with members of the Lydon family who are also doing research. I am told that my Grandfather came from Kiltimagh in Ireland and may still have distant relatives named Lydon in the town .

howard thomas lydon (dob02.05.71) (brother of micheal(dob02.05.71) and shirley(dob15.07.69), son of michael lydon (dob20.09.36) and yvonne lydon (nee stobbs)(dob06.09.46). My brother has two kids (connor micheal and charlotte elizabeth) and shirley has two (lily and willow (also twins!)

by the way i think my great grandad died and is buried in a war grave in hebburn cemetary you can see his details on the war graves website. I'm sure the story is that he came back from ypres and died of the effects of mustard gas. The family roots are in mayo ireland in a place called kiltimagh

Calling all new members on Family Tree Circles, please get in contact if you have any details regarding the 'Lydon' family name.
My on site Journals list some basic details regarding the Lydons and Scanlon families ( both who originated in Ireland) who are direct relations to me....Any information or details no matter how small will be of great value.

In our family albums I have a few photographs of our Lydon and Scanlon
relations and I am willing to share copies, to those who are directly related to our family.
