After Maureen, Clifford and Joan were born the family moved to Scotswood (between 1933 and 1936). After Charlie died the family moved out to Branxton Moor. Branxton is near Howtel and Flodden, quite close to the Scots border.

After Branxton the family moved to a succession of places including Ninebanks, Langley, Haltwhistle and a spell in the workhouse at Berwick. Alan and Mary Elizabeth 'broke out' of the workhouse in 1953 and stayed with her aunt Lil (or sister Lil) Leach.
