    I believe my Grandmother Mary Alice Brunton born 1902 was related to Polly. I think it was through her father Robert John Brunton who was born in Cullercoats 1876. Robert was married to Elizabeth Ferguson who I believe was born in North Shields in 1876. I would like to know more about Polly.

    Dear Chris,
    Thank you for your comment. I do not have any more specific information about Polly Donkin but when I was doing the research for the project I visited the Northumberland archives in Woodhorn. They have lots of information which is fairly easy to access. Another good source is the local history section in North Shields library.

    Good luck.
