Hi there, I am new to this and just started researching my great grandfather Jonathan Dorricott who,s father is Thomas. So far traced back to 1881 census fron Cramlington Northumberland which states that Thomas and Susannah had three children then Henry 5 Samuel 3 and John 1 who then disappears in the 1891 census when another three children appear - Benjamin, Jonathan (my great grandfather) John Thomas Samuel appears to be born inMotherwell and it seems the family as you state move up and down the country a few times. I can only find one more mention of Jonathan living with his brother I presume (Henry and Flora ) Dorricott (without the extra t this time) in the 1901 census at 10udston Rows Hamilton. I have traced Susannah Carr to Camperdown birth1853 her father being Henry Carr and mother Ann Carr at Hazelrigg Northumberland parish, it looks like she had five siblings. That's as far as I have got really. I am trying to find out where Jonathan moved to after the age of sixteen as I only have his marriage certificate after that which states Hamilton. I am the grandaughter of his daughter Susannah McConnell maiden name Dorricott.
