I am doing some research for a friend and have hit a brick wall. Joseph Bennett, a dock labourer, was born November 1814 in Monkwearmouth, Co. Durham, England. He married, 18 January 1836 in Monkwearmouth, Margaret Fotherly, born 1815, also in Monkwearmouth. I have a complete family on down from there, but the only reference I can get for Joseph's ancestors is that his father was John and his mother was Jane. Given that families didn't move much in those days it would seem reasonable to look for them in the Monkwearmouth vicinity, but I can find nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
