Hannah Pallister [p.]


Hannah Pallister was the first child of William Pallister & Mary Ann Welch christened April 12th, 1846 at Holy Trinity, Wingate Grange, Co Durham.

In 1851 Hannah was living with her grandfather, John Welch, at New Row, Willington, Northumberland.

Hannah was again not with her parents in 1861, but working as a general servant for Thomas Noble, a fire brick manufacturer & his family at Whitefield Pit, Painshaw (also known as Penshaw), Co Durham.

In 1871 Hannah was still working in domestic service for a widow Mary Story at 2 Winchester Terrace, Westgate, Newcastle.

On March 10th, 1872 Hannah married Joseph Young at Christ Church, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Witnesses at the wedding were James Chather & Catherine Pallister. Joseph was born c1840 in Rothbury, Northumberland, son of Robert Young, a tailor.

In 1881 Hannah & Joseph were living at 25 Carlton St, Newcastle-upon-Tyne with 2 children Joseph (5) & Mary (1). They had sadly lost their first child, William Pallister Young in 1876, aged just 2 years. Joseph was a corn miller.

Hannah & Joseph were still living at the same address in 1891 & Joseph still worked as a corn miller. Son Joseph was a grocer's assistant & daughter Mary Annie was a scholar. 

Hannah died at 8 Camden St, on September 23rd, 1900, aged 55.  She was buried at All Saints Cemetery, Newcastle on September 25th.

Son Joseph enlisted with the 14 (Northumberland) Company 5 Battalion Imperial Yeomanry and served in the Boer War in South Africa.  Sadly on February 25th, 1902 he was severely wounded at Yzer Spruit and died of his wounds on March 5th at Klerksdorp.

In 1901 widowed Joseph & daughter Mary Annie were living at 8 Camden St, Newcastle & Joseph continued to be a flour miller.

Joseph was living at 89 Hotspur St, Heaton, Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1911 & still working as a miller.  With him was daughter Mary Annie, listed as Minnie Reed although as yet no marriage record has been found.  Her husband, Jerold? Reed, was an amusement caterer.  Mary Annie & Jerold had a 2 year old daughter, Mona.

Mary Annie had had a relationship with Harvey Wingrove Flewett, an insurance agent, from at least 1902 until his death on December 31st, 1906 at 7 Hotspur Street, Heaton.  (Probate of Harvey’s will was granted to Mary Ann Young, spinster, in 1907.)  During this time she had 3 children, 2 of whom had died prior to the 1911 census, but Mary Annie & Harvey’s first daughter Minnie Flewett, born 1902, was present on the 1911 census.  Presumably Mary Annie & Harvey never married as his first wife, Grace Gertrude Gayler did not die until 1912.
