“My Great great grandfather William Dennison was born in Bedburn, Hamsterley in 1828 (23 in 1851 census.) I know he lived at Bedburn Mill and was probably born there. He married Ann Mitchison from Kenton. He later left his wife and family and according to family history ran off with a ‘bit of fluff’! ( My father’s expression.) We have a photo of him as an old man he sent back to his son also William Dennison living in Villiers St, Stockton from Australia! I can’t trace him after that, but he may have had another family in Australia. Any info about parents etc. would be gratefully received.”
