  • Notes 
    • There is a baptism at Canonbie 05 Feb 1792 that is likely to be for her since her marriage notice says her father was Thomas and there is only one other to a Thomas - in 1788 (but to the same parents Thomas Armstrong and Ann Mitchison).
      There is a death at Hexham in Jun 1875 that could be her, and another at Brampton in Dec 1875 - though for both the age is 78 (5 or 6 years young). A 92 year old at Whitehaven in Dec 1872 seems too old.
      The death of Elizabeth Armstrong Jan-Mar 1875, at Newcastle aged 84, may be more likely - she may have followed the Scottish habit of reverting to her maiden name. The record, however gives no information to confirm who it really is other than to say that her husband was a 'gentleman'.
