  • Name Robert Ridley NESWORTHY  [1
    Born 7 Jan 1845  South Shields, Durham, England Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    Christened 19 Jan 1845  South Shields, Durham, England Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    • Robert Ridley, son of Matthew and Mary NOSWORTHY, born 7 January 1845, baptized 19 January 1845 at St. Hilda, South Shields. Father a mariner. Baptized by M. W. Griffith.
    Gender Male 
    Died 7 Aug 1910  Walkington, Beverley, Yorkshire, England Find all individuals with events at this location  [2, 3
    • Robert NESSWORTHY, age 67, died 7 August 1910, at the East Riding Asylum, in Walkington. Death attributed to "Cerebral softening" for 10 months. He was noted to be a Shipwright from South Shields. [Walkington is about 10 miles north of Kingston upon Hull and just west of Beverley].
    Notes 
    • It has been suggested from several sources that Robert had a bigamous marriage, first marrying in South Shields, and then later in North Shields. The second marriage document has not been located; without it, bigamy cannot be proved. From the existing evidence it seems fairly clear that he was in fact, living both in South and North Shields, and was the father to at least 18 children. Until we can confirm the existence of a second Robert NESWORTHY, both spouses will be recorded as being married to Robert.
