Does anyone know what "Central Association" means with regard to his on-going occupation in 1915.

I notice he did desert while in South Africa in 1880, seems to be about a month and he had about three weeks in hospital in 1883, at Dover I think. Can't make out what it was for but seemed to...

The second link dropped me straight into the image Coquet. With regard to him being a temperate man, does that mean he didn't drink or he was of an even temperament. It could fit, if its the latter, ...

This is all very confusing :) I've always assumed that the Bothal couple in the 1891 census are the ones we want. I think your death registration is the right entry and certainly the burial register...

I'm not sure it is the same man. I think the police assault took place at Choppington/Guide Post and there is a death notice of 1908 for a Thomas Craig husband of Margaret at Choppington, aged 70.

It's the old one by the church, "churchyard" as opposed to "cemetery" if you look at the sister site.

I don't know what happened to the husband....if he survived prison I guess it would be the...

It looks like she's in Chevington churchyard, certainly there's a Margaret Craig in there aged 52. (On the sister site).

With it being Togston I thought she might have gone to Amble cemetery but...
