Interesting Information Received from June Watson,  May 2011

Incorporated Company of Barber Surgeons, Wax and Tallow Chandlers and Periwig Makers
The incorporated Company of Barber Surgeons together with the Wax and Tallow Chandlers was formed on 10 Oct 1442 in Newcastle on Tyne. Meetings were held in a variety of places. Their old meeting place was leased out in 1834 to Newcastle School of Medicine and Surgery and in 1850-51 demolished to make way for the North East and Railway Company. A new meeting hall was then built in Victoria Street, Newcastle

Edward Stephenson b. 1806 was admitted to the Company on 6 May, 1844 at the Barber Surgeon Hall having been previously apprenticed with James Carr, Barber Surgeon. Certificate signed by two wardens of the Company
In 1841 Edward Stephenson was living at Dog Bank, Newcastle on Tyne trading as a Hairdresser

    The whole site has lots of extra stuff to add to the bare bones here, and is certainly worth a visit
Thank to June Watson for the extensive additions above

Research Notes

LDS has marriage.and children. Note the family moves from Ulgham to Newcastle-on-Tyne. Dorothy's maiden name is given on christenings in both places, so it holds up
The late child  Frances is the exception, so is possibly not part of the family
