SHARP - NORTHUMBERLAND, ENGLAND
SHARP – The Sharp family I am researching originates so far from Haltwhistle, Northumberland, England. The line begins with Thomas Sharp who was born in 1836. I believe his fathers name was also Thomas, but know nothing more.
Thomas married Rachel Ann Brown in 1870 at Lofthouse, Northumberland. They had eight children before Rachel died in 1886. Thomas then remarried to Elizabeth Ann Harris and they had another two sons.
Thomas’s children were: Charles E. Sharp (b: 1865), Ann Elizabeth Sharp (b: 1866), Edward Thomas Sharp (b: 1872), Frances J. Sharp (b: 1874), Florence M. Sharp (b: 1876 –twin), John Sharp (b: 1876-twin), Clara M. L. Sharp (b: 1877), William R. Sharp (b: 1887) & Frederick Thomas Sharp (b: 1889).
I would like to find out what happened to all of these children, and identify who Thomas’ parents were.
Edward Thomas Sharp married Kathleen Rose Gibbons, and they moved to Australia with their children.
