I am searching information on the Heron's of Chipchase Castle. My GGG-Grandmother, Dorothy Heron, b. 1802, was the (alleged) daughter of John Heron, b. 28 Nov. 1763, and the (alleged) Granddaughter of a "Ralph Heron of Bridge End Morpeth." Ralph, per documents, was a direct descendant to the Heron's residing at Chipchase Castle. Dorothy married a John Cole on 5 Dec. 1825 in the "Old Church" in North Shields. They had (at least) 4 children: Barbara, Jane Ann, Richard and John Heron Cole. John Heron Cole left 3 sons: John, Alexander and Richard.
I am hoping to validate the link between Dorothy and Ralph Heron and trace the family back further. Dorothy d. Sept. 1876 in Bishop Aukland, Durham.
It would also help to know what church or Parish the "Old Church" is. Possibly, this is in Morpeth?
