The history of the Richard Howey Greensitt's family

Both Richard and Jane were living in Tyne Street, Newcastle on their wedding day. According to their marriage certificate, they were both minors. This means they were under 21 and needed their parents permission to marry.

Richard Greensitt was a shipwright when he married Jane at All Saints Parish Church, Newcastle on 21 April 1845.

Jane Bright's father Thomas was a Glassmaker at the time of her marriage.

Eleven years later when their son John was born in 1856, Richard was still employed as a ship wright.

Richard Greensitt was still a shipwright on census day 1881.

In 1871, the Greensitt family were living in the parish of Bonwell in Low Paper Mill road. By 1881 they had moved to 236, Tyne Street, Newcastle upon Tyne.
This house in Tyne Street had at that time the name 'Boat Landing'.
On census day 1881, the following members of the family were living in the house:

The Bright family were not living in Type Street in 1881.

Richard wrote his will on 30 August 1901 while living at 27 Montague Street, Scotswood, near Newcastle. He died two/three months later and his will was proved on 2 December 1901 with probate granted at Newcastle to Richard Howey Greensitt, his grandson and sole executor.

The Will split the estate between the three surviving daughters and his grandson:

The childrens' names are specified twice within the will and so confirm Isabell's unusual middle name of 'Bodger'.
