Family History Beginners Board / Re: Pawson family York
« on: Wednesday 20 December 17 15:14 GMT (UK)  »
The only document I currently have is the marriage certificate which shows he married an Elizabeth Gladys Perry on the 12th July 1920 at St James Church, Hessle Road, Hull. It show Arthur as being age 25 at the time, working as a Labourer and a home address of 9 Acomb Road, York. It shows his father as a Benjamin Pawson (deceased). His wife was listed as living at 81 Hessle Road ,Hull and her father was an Arthur Septamus Perry who was a fish merchant.

Both Arthur and Elizabeth lived in Hull at various addresses through out their lives and had two children Gwen who was born in approximately 1922 ( not sure of the exact date but know she was about ten years older then my father) and Benjamin Perry Pawson (my father) who was born on 16.1.32). Perhaps the Benjamin name came from his grandfather.

Arthur died in October 1968 ( think it was the 8th but have not confirmed this yet) and Elizabeth died on 7.8.85.

I am  starting to research the family of my Grandad Arthur Pawson who was born in York on 21.11.1874. His parents were a Benjamin and Elizabeth Pawson. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Richard Pawson

Thanks for the reply. This has finally confirmed I have the right family.

For you information the details of the first marriage of James Deakin are:

He married a Maud Alberto on the 23rd December 1937 at the Parish Church, Saundby which is near to Gainsborough. At the time of the marriage his address was shown as 84 Vessey Road, Worksop. His fathers name was shown as William Deakin. The marriage certificate records him as been 44 year old bachelor and Maud Alberto as age 23. Based on this it would have made his year of birth either 1892/1893 but I have since clarified his actual date of birth was 11.12.89. We think this difference may be that he took a few years of his age when he married because of the age difference.

My father was born on 1.10.38. and is a Michael Frederick Deakin. Apparently my Grandma left James Deakin when my Dad was three month old and went back to live with her mother. I did find a record of a James Deakin age 49 living by himself at 45 Manton Crescent, Worksop in 1939 which seems to tie in with this.

My mum and dad married on 4.5.63. at Holy Trinity Church, Gainsborough and his home address was still showing as Saundby. They had two children myself born on 10.2.66. and my brother born 13.4.68. ( I can let you have the full family tree if you want it).

If you could let me have details of the Deakin family tree that would be really useful.I have found ten other possible brother/sisters but perhaps not all of them survived. They are: Annie, Gertrude, Selena, Maggie, Willis, Doris, Hilda, Arthur, Ada and William one of whom I assume was your grandmothers brother.

Do you know if there is a grave anywhere for William and Mary Deakin? Possibly in Kiveton Park?

Do you have the dates James Deakin and Florry (Florence Deakin) married and died? and if there is a grave for either of them possibly in Worksop.

Do you know the name June Shepherd  as someone of that name has put a family tree of the Mills family on Ancestry UK with a photo of my Grandad and this is, so far, the only picture we have of him (James Deakin).

Are you aware of anyone around who would remember him/have any photo's etc.

Sorry for all the questions but your response has confirmed I am on the right track and I would like to get details for my dad if I can.

I am planning to go to Kiveton Park/Worksop to see what I can find out but any information you may have may help us narrow down the search.

Thanks again for you help

Did you ever get an answer regarding your query about the marriage of James Deakin and Florence Mills as I think James Deakin is my Grandfather. My father (now 78) only met him (James Deakin his father) once when he was 16.

All I have managed to find out is Florence died on 4.2.84 in Worksop and her address at the time of her death was 26 Lanchester Gardens. James Deakin died in September 1982(I don't have an exact date).

I have his first marriage details and wedding certificate but no record of any divorce.

Any further information you have would be gratefully received.
