1151 This Johns origins are unclear. There is no baptism for him at Ormesby (or anywhere else).

The reasons for creating this John are first that in 1661 there are two baptisms close together for a Margaret and a John both with a John as father, but the first is qualified as John sen. The John born 1611, son of the Ormesby patriarch, John, is taken to be the senior.

The 1653 marriage to an Averill leads to a bunch of births. It is unlikely to be a second marriage for John 1611 as we have no appropriately timed burial for an Elizabeth and in fact have a burial for an Elizabeth wife of John in 1680 which is taken to be more likely for Elizabeth Richardsone.

Cannot be certain that the burial in 1674 is for this John. 
MEWBORN, John (I3470)
 
1152 This line is an Australian immigrant one originating with a Thomas of uncertain origin and Mary Ann Buck. Thomas is said to be from Darlington, though no record has been found for his baptism. Thomas worked as a linen weaver at Hurwurth a little south of Darlington where all but one of his children was born. He finally moved to Bolton, Lancashire (where his wife was from).

Their surving children seem to have made their way to Australia in the 1850s and the majority of present-day Australian Mewburns are descended from them. 
MEWBURN, Hurworth Australia (I1240)
 
1153 This line starts with a James Meaburn who turned up at Boston, Lincolnshire with wife Amy Ambler and was a shipowner. Since Meaburns come from the north east - principally County Durham - then either James (or his unknown father) moved south or this line is not linked at all to the north eastern Meaburn/Mewburns.

It is possible they started as southern Mayburns but that would be an unusual shift in spelling so migration south is the more likely option.

James and Amy married in Lincolnshire in 1770 so we may project back to sometime around 1745 for James's birth. Most James's are accounted for even back to 1700. Those who are not are a James Mewburn (1742) from Stainton and a James Meburn (1750) from Sunderland (father John Meburn; mother Ann (possibly Dodds)). The first is a Mewburn and from a farming family so hardly seems like a candidate for shipping. The Meburn from Sunderland could though be a candidate as many there were involved with boat building and as sailors so discovering one who became a shipowner is hardly surprising. However it is all speculation.

The descendants of James and Amy include a harbour master for the Port of London at Greenwich; a son-in-law, James Staniland, who was a ropemaker and whose name has been used as a given name through subsequent generations; a son John Ambler Meaburn who carried on as a shipowner and became very wealthy.

Two of John Ambler's children emigrated to Tasmania where John James established a significant line of Meaburns before abandoning them for California.
 
MEABURN, Boston (I1609)
 
1154 This may be John George Beckwith born Q3 1872 at Sunderland (mother Hogg). BECKWITH, John (I4886)
 
1155 This may be the Arthur Elliot Walker Mewburn or Radcliffe who died 19 Jan 1958 at Westcliffe, Essex with probate 03 March 1959. RADCLIFFE, Arthur (I2776)
 
1156 This may be the John of Thornton, Stainton and Stainsbury who appears in the 1673 Hearth Tax.
A marriage to Mary Armestronge on 14 Nov 1658 at Yarm (just 4 miles from Stainton) could well be for him.
 
MEWBORN, John (I1857)
 
1157 This may be the Thomas of Ormesby who appears in the 1673 Hearth Tax. MEWBURNE, Thomas (I3512)
 
1158 This may well be the James Meaburn who established the Boston Meaburn line of the family. He matches up perfectly with the James Meaburn who was buried at the age of 73 at Boston in 1823. MEBURN, James (I3854)
 
1159 This person may not have existed. He is not identified at the birth of William (clearly an illegitimate birth) but is given by William at the time of his marriage, and is said then to have been a mechanic. Suspect he may be an invention to add an air of respectatablity at the time of marriage. (), Thomas (I4178)
 
1160 This seems likely to be the George of Marton who appears in the 1673 Hearth Tax. MEWBURNE, George (I3506)
 
1161 This starts with a family by George Meborne and is continued by a family of several generations descended from a John Meeburne. The timing is such that John could have been a child of George, though we have no record for George's baptism. MEBURN, Newcastle (I4480)
 
1162 This Thomas must be the one who was apprenticed as an attorney at Newcastle in 1768. There is no other candidate of the right age.
The date for Thomas's marriage is given by Dorothea Mewburn-Watson, with no citation - nor record has been found.
Thomas's precise death date is from Dorothea Mewburn-Watson.
There are monumental inscriptions in the chancel of St John Baptist at Stanground that say:
"--- Mewburn, d. 1789, and -- his daughter, d. 1788; Thomas William Mewburn, d. 1795, and Mary Ann his daughter, d 1794".
The first two with names missing are believed to be John and Ann children of Thomas (1717).
The Land Tax Redemption of 1798 shows a Thomas Mewburn occupying land at Standground owned by Lord Brownlow. He is assessed at £57 14/-, vastly more than than anyone else in the area (mostly assessed at a few shillings or pounds).

The Monthly Magazine, Vol 31, 1811 notes that Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Mewburn of Boroughbury was married to Daniel Webster. 
MEWBURN, Thomas (I843)
 
1163 This tree continues to be highly speculative. Whether the Nicholas who marries Anne is the 1704 Nicholas is uncertain - only the fact of being in Stokesley at the right time links them.
Again the childrens' birth records do not name the mother.
Stokesley Parish Register records that on 03 Feb 1744/5 Nicholas Mewburn of Stokesley, weaver, was excommunicated for refusing to pay his Easter offering to the minister.
There is a death at Stokesley that is assumed to be him (another in 1787 is assumed to be his son). 
MEWBURN, Nicholas (I704)
 
1164 Thomas and Catherine's lives seem Yarm-based except for the birth of their first child Thomas at Easington. Is it coincidence that Easington is where Armstrong Mewburn was living at the time (quite a different family line).
Have assumed that this Thomas married Sarah and not his father. 
MEABORNE, Thomas (I3818)
 
1165 Thomas and Jane were illiterate and made their marks at the time of marriage.
Thomas emigrated with sons John and James, arriving at Victoria on the Tasmania in Oct 1853. That was still in the relatively early days of the Ballarat gold rush era. Wife Jane arrived on the Shalimar with 7 other children on Feb 1855.
He established a brick-making works at Ballarat, apparently around 1854 and his business became one of the largest in the area at a time when Ballarat was being developed as a planned town with major handsome buildings.
Death cert names all children in order and with ages. 
MEWBURN, Thomas (I1243)
 
1166 Thomas could be the son of John Mewburn and Jane Porter at Plawsworth, or of Robert Meaburne who married Anne Rutter in 1635 at Houghton. MEABURNE, Thomas (I4558)
 
1167 Thomas left hsi Danby estate to his half cousin Francis Mewburn, the apothecary surgeon of Durham. BOWYER, Thomas (I4377)
 
1168 Thomas switched masters during his Articles of Clerkship on 20 Sep 1839 from Thomas Atkinson to Evan Morris of Harcourt Buildings Temple. Articles were completed 25 Oct 1841.
Thomas was declared bankrupt in 1845. 
MEWBURN, Thomas Marishall (I1159)
 
1169 Thomas's death is recorded at Acomb, but not his birth which might have been any time between 1736 and 1752. MEWBURN, Thomas (I522)
 
1170 Thomas's father is believed to be the Thomas who died at Butterby in 1658. However this Thomas is not mentioned in the will so is assumed to have died before 1658. MOWBORNE, Thomas (I648)
 
1171 Thornton Steward is near Ripon.
There is another birth that could be for her at Spennithorne with the baptism on 22 Jan 1775 (father Marmaduke Plews and mother Elizabeth). Spennithorne is not far from Kirby where the marriage took place - though that makes her very young. Also does not match the burial belived to be for her.
Unfortunately there is no matching birth for brother John at either place. 
PLEWS, Elizabeth (I2649)
 
1172 Though George's birth is registered at Bolton, he gives it in censuses as Houghton le Spring (his mother's home). He also died at Liverpool (Lancs) but was buried bacj at Monkwearmouth. Seems that his parents went to Lancashire for work for a short while during the 1840s. MEWBURN, George Ord (I861)
 
1173 Though James is said to have been born in 1843, the only likely birth is registered in 1845.
He had the brick contract for Ballarat station - including the decorative designs made by Jane. 
HALL, James (I2516)
 
1174 Though John as eldest son inherits some lands, the fact that the second son Miles gets the rest and is required to feed and lodge and look after John, and then inherits his portion, suggest that John is not competent. MEWBURN, John (I2912)
 
1175 Three Margarets were born at Billingham between 1690 and 1704 each to a different father so cannot tell which if any was her.
Evidently died in childbirth - buried on the same day as son Thomas. 
CHILTON, Margaret (I4605)
 
1176 Three sons and six daughters. (Burke's Commoners) MEABURN, Catharine (I631)

1180 Twin to Hannah. MEWBURN, Jane 'Jennie' (I882)
 
1181 Twin to Isabel.
The Egglescliffe baptismal record for his daughter confirms that he went off to London (so his marriage is also more or less confirmed).
They moved about in London from Grays Inn Lane to Tash Street then to Leather Lane. Samuel's occupation is never stated. 
MEEBURN, Samuel (I2633)
 
1182 Twin to Jane.
Taking a punt on the death record. 
MEWBURN, Hannah 'Annie' (I883)
 
1183 Twin to John.
A Mary Brotton, aged 35, arrived at New York from Liverpool on 20 Aug 1886. However she is listed as a spinster and is travelling with an eleven-year old child apparently called Myra. The ages are right for Mary and Emma. Could it be them? 
MEABURN, Mary (I1345)
 
1184 Twin to Mary. MEABURN, John (I1344)
 
1185 Twin to Robert George. MEWBURN, Mary Ann (I1523)
 
1186 Twin to Samuel. MEEBURN, Isabel (I3609)
 
1187 Two births at Houghton le Spring to David Halliday and Ann Newburn are probably her children but they suggest that several more went unrecorded during the preceding 16 years of the marriage. HALLIDAY, Susanna (I3135)
 
1188 Two daughters by Thomas Thornton. (Burke's Commoners)
Buried 28 Apr 1786. 
MEABURN, Mary (I633)
