1. John STOREY
John's wife was a widow when she died in 1774 at Ogle South Farm, Whalton.
There is an NBI entry for the burial of John Storey, 12 Feb 1752, Northumberland, Whalton, St Mary Magdalene.
The name Storey and its derivatives, Story,Storie,Storrie, Storry etc are derived from the Old Norse and mean either Strong or Large.
The Storey name is synonymous with the Border Reivers who operated along the English - Scottish border until the unification of England and Scotland around 1600. From their early beginnings in the area which later became the border regions of England and Scotland, the Stor(e)y families grew and became one of the 13 most notorious Border Reveiver Surnames.
WHALTON is a parish comprising the townships of Newham, Ogle, Riplington, and Whalton. It is bounded on the north by Meldon parish, on the west by Tindale Ward, on the south by Newburn Parish, and on the east by Ponteland. It comprises an area of 5,918 acres, and its population in 1801, was 470; in 1811, 541; in 1821, 534; in 1831, 548; in 1841, 531; and in 1851, 461 souls. The decrease of population in Whalton, which is an agricultural parish, is attributed to the employment of single men instead of married labourers as formerly. The rivers Blyth and Howburn intersect this parish. [From History, Topography, and Directory of Northumberland, Whellan, 1855].
It is possible that this Elizabeth is the one baptised 16 Nov 1704, daughter of John, in Newcastle upon Tyne. The age is close.
