    Notes:

    It has been suggested from several sources that Robert had a bigamous marriage, first marrying in South Shields, and then later in North Shields. This has yet to be proven. Until we can confirm the existence of a second Robert Nesworthy, both spouses will be recorded as being married to this one person.

    Notes:

    No baptism has yet been found for Matthew; nevertheless, he stated his father was Thomas at the time of his marriage. There was only one Thomas Nosworthy in Staverton, Devon raising a family between the years 1808-37 which supports the likelihood that he most likely belongs with this family.
