My great grandfather's widow, Catherine Ann, moved to her sister in law's home at 58 Newburgh Street, Amble in 1917. She was Dorothy Trobe ( born Tomlinson) and they had a son Adam Trobe who was in the cyclists regiment in WW1 and survived to marry a Jessie Grey. Other children included John Evan Trobe, Thomas H Trobe and Francis R Trobe. The only male child of any of these I can trace who could have remained in Amble was a Thomas Trobe who was born in 1924. I have not made a priority of warning the trail on this section of my ancestry.
Thank you for your interest.
