Robson, William John (b1870)

Family

William was born abt1870 at Jarrow, Co. Durham, to parents John Atkinson Robson, an iron founder (1891), and Mary Elizabeth Winlow.

The 1891 census return records William as a book-keeper’s clerk.

He married Jane Learmouth (b1868) in early 1896 at Sunderland, Co. Durham. Census returns and birth records  identify seven children.
