Hello Felicia and welcome to rootschat.

I'm sure if you put their names here someone could help look for them.  :)

Have you tried British Newspapers Online? Not sure where you are, but you may have access via your local library or online through a library (in Australia we can access online through our National Library). If you don't have access I'm happy to look up for you - send me a pm if you don't want to put his name on here.  :)

The Common Room / Re: Ann Witton. Can anyone find her and her dad William Witton?

Mary Witton married to Charles Thompson in 1849

Sarah Witton married to Robert Purdy in 1846



Can I just point out that Mary WITTON married John THOMPSON at St Mary, Lambeth in 1849.

I can't see a birth registration for Robert, the son of Robert and Sarah PURD(A)Y born c1848?

Probably should have read this previous thread before
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=776201.0

However, I am a bit confused as according to reply #8 on that thread the marriage of Ann GEARING to James THACKERREY 24 July 1877 has her father as John WITTON. Do you have Ann's previous marriage details - is her father John or William?

I just want to check that on all Ann's marriage certificates say her father was William WITTON, tailor?

Also, what evidence do you have that Mary, Sarah and Charles were her siblings? - just to help find them on the 1841 and 1851 census.  ;)

Just to help other researchers, here is Ann and John Thomas GEARING in the 1861 on Waterloo Rd, Lambeth

John Gearing         31    Clerkenwell, Middlesex  (clerk)
Anne Gearing         37    Westminster, Middlesex
Frances Gearing          1    Holborn, Middlesex
Elizabeth Gearing     0    Lambeth, Surrey
Kate Witton    Grandmother    60    Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire

RG09/348 / 104 pg 14

Modified to add:
And in the 1871 at St Giles
Anne Gearing    34    Westminster, Middlesex  (widowed, mangler)
Emily Jane Gearing    8    Lambeth, Surrey
Ann T Gearing          5    St Giles, Middlesex
Mary A Gearing          2    St Giles, Middlesex
Maria C Gearing          0    St Giles, Middlesex

GBC/1871/0345/0149

(though I can't find birth registrations for the youngest 3 girls?)

There are 4 John BUSBY possibilities (that I can see) that are baptised in the area around 1770:

born 17 Sept 1769, bap Particular Baptist, Chipping Norton to John and Mary
bap 24 Dec 1769  Asthall to father Thomas
bap 22 Jan 1769 Deddington to William and Catherine
bap 14 July 1771 Chipping Norton to William and Elizabeth

There is still a John born c1771 Over Norton in the 1851, so this may be the one bap at Chipping Norton.

I haven't time now to check burials, but will try to come back later and have another look.  :)
