Thomas Sedgwick [Thomas Sedgwick / Elizabeth Simpson]
b. 1851 Marshall Green, Durham (BMD)
m Mary Wynn 1876 (BMD)
d 6 November 1940

Thomas was a farmer and in 1881 is living with his brother in law who is described as a partner in the farm. The family lived in Haswell in 1881 and 1891 and then in 1901 at Hill House farm, Sleetburn?. Thomas and five of the children are together in 1911 - Thomas described as a widower.

Additional information has recently been sent from a descendant. Mary died on 11 June 1910 and both she and Thomas are buried in Witton le Wear. Also 3 additional children have been added - Rebecca, Beatrice and Elizabeth. I haven't yet been able to find a birth entry for Beatrice.
