Alexander Nicholson did indeed die Anderston - shown 51 - died 5/1/1884 at 67 Elliot Street, Glasgow - shoemaker - married to Jane Dempster.    He died of Bronchitis  2 months, informant his widow Jane.   His parents are shown as John Nicholson, tailor, and Elizabeth McLune (?hard to read), both deceased.


There is a tree on Ancestry featuring Gladys Christina Coulton born 30/6/1914 Bermondsey - as has been posted she was illegitimate.

The tree states her mother was Caroline Ada Coulton, born 10/1/1894 Horselydown, Surrey (dau. of William George Coulton and Emily Georgina Lloyd).  The tree also shows that Gladys was brought up by her uncle Charles Henry Coulton so she was indeed brought up by family and not adopted out.   Her mother Caroline married a Frederick Charles Self in 1917.


Both per FreeReg:

Frances Grimes b.10/9/1799, bp.17/11/1799 Brancaster, dau. of Thomas Grimes and Mary Wilkinson

Nothing in Brancaster for a Robert Dunton BUT there was just one couple having children baptised in Holkham in the relevant period - a Thomas Dunton and Elizabeth Pace:

George bp.6/12/1798
Ann bp.12/6/1801, bur.2/5/1802
Thomas bp.13/5/1803
Thomas bp.5/6/1806
Mary Ann bp.2/7/1809

I first assumed the first Thomas must have died but this doesn't seem to be the case - no infant burial - you will find him on the census bc.1802.

So, as the first Thomas hadn't died I'm wondering if the second 'Thomas' bp.1806 was a mistake on the part of the vicar, and that it should actually be your Robert.  No way to prove it of course but seems a logical explanation.


William Hoggen 21 married his first wife Eliza Wood 1st Feb 1869 Greenock - his parents William Hoggen, Shipwright Journeyman decd and Janet Armour (decd).

His parents married 17 Aug 1843 Greenock - and he was b.29 May 1848 Greenock.

Don't know when William senior was born but he was the son of a James and Helen/Ellen.

In 1851 William junior is with his widowed grandmother in Greenock - family transcribed as 'Huggins' on both Ancestry and FindMyPast.   Although shown as a boarder, he is still with his grandmother in 1861.  In 1871 Helen's surname is Hogen!

Grandmother Helen's death was as Helen Hogen 87, widow of James Hogen, Customs Officer, died 17 June 1877 Greenock - informant son David.   Her parents given as James Stewart, seaman and Helen Yuill.

Familysearch shows 3 children to James and Helen baptised Greenock:

Sarah Hugans b.1/4/1821
Jean Huggins b.11/1/1823
James b.10/1/1825

James Hoggans married Helen Stewart 13th October 1810 Greenock - so there should be some earlier children between 1810 and 1820.   Searched on Scotlands People and found 2 more, this time surname is Hugan:

James b.17 Apr 1814
William b.24/3/1816

So, the latter is the father of William b.1848, son of William and Janet nee Armour.

An awful lot of variant spellings of Hoggan!



Transcribed as Henry Mason in 1901, in Chiswick on Ancestry/FindMyPast.

Got it slightly wrong. There is one entry for Robert Butcher - Boyds Marriage index - and the other for Robert Buckle - England Marriages - Bradfield St George - with corresponding entries for Ann/e Nun.

Aside from that marriage there are no baptisms or burials at Bradfield St George for Butcher or any of the variants (likewise at Bradfield Combust or surrounding areas).   As to the marriage, Robert and Ann could have been widower and widow and not had any children anyway.



The Albert Joseph Whetton who died in 1954 Burton upon Trent does indeed appear to be your man - he was born as plain Albert Whetton  (recorded by GRO as Whetten), mmn Dennis, in Mar.qtr.1876 Ashby de la Zouch.   

Does not look as if he ever married but did find:

Albert Joseph Whetton of 92 High Street, Measham died 27th March 1954 at The Infirmary, Burton upon Trent.   Administration (with will) Leicester 19 June to Doris Ellen Jones (wife of William Jones).  Effects 3960 15s 10d.

As I go to post Jomot beat me to it but will still do so as explains who Doris Ellen was.

Have established that Doris Ellen was his niece, dau. of his younger brother Arthur.   She was born 18/8/1904, married William A O Jones in 1929, died 1978.

Unless the family were non-conformists, I would think St. Andrews, Wingfield would be their local church.
