Returning to Northumberland

I've had a breakthrough in my husband's Northumberland family. His 3x gt grandfather, George Radcliffe, was a mariner. As he had died before 1851, I didn't know where he was born. His wife was Elizabeth Smith, her mother was Mary Forster. George and Elizabeth named their son Joseph Forster. I have just found another mariner from Berwick named Forster Joseph Radcliffe. He died in 1829 and is buried at Holy Trinity, Berwick. So now I am fairly confident that I have George's possible place of birth. The search goes on. Forster was living at Wool Market, Berwick.
