Howden Research Trip

Research, Stephenson Family Add comments

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Howden, a village approx 26 miles west of Hull and former home of both Robert D’Onston Stephenson’s wife and Frederick Richard Chapman.  The day was dull and damp but being by Annie Stephenson’s grave made up for the wet weather.  I visited the cemetery where the workhouse records claim she was buried, the site of the workhouse were she passed away, the site of the original workhouse, and the site of the family home of Frederick Richard Chapman.  I came away with some new information and some new leads and it was nice to see the Howden Minister and walk among the ancient graves.
