    Paternal grandfather’s ancestry here:

    Mother is Isabel Johnson, but I have no further details to help me track her or Andrea Riseborough’s paternal grandmother, Isabella Middleton.

      I can’t access that link. Who does it say were Robert Riseborough’s parents?

      • Boatmonger says:

        Robert William Riseborough, born 1914, Northumberland (Andrea’s grandfather), son of John Riseborough (of Norfolk), born 1883, and Edith Endean, born 1881, (daughter of William Endean, born 1844 and Mary Armstrong, born 1845). John Riseborough’s parents were Robert Riseborough, born 1848, and Mary Ann Storey, also born 1848.

        From birth records, Andrea’s mother’s maiden name was Johnson, and, from checking out marriages, is probably Isabel Johnson, birth year unknown. I can’t find any more information on her, nor on Andrea’s paternal grandmother, Isabella Middleton.
