Interesting Name
« on: Wednesday 18 October 06 11:07 BST (UK) »
I was on the family search site, looking for something for another Roostchatter when I came up with this name:

ALSWITHA PLANTAGENET ALICIA DE MOUSFORT COLLETON , born in England in 1830. A relative you think or parents with high dreams.

I think they had a pension for different names: her mother was Septima Beata Colleton.  ::)

Interestingly, her father was James Roupett Colleton - wonder if this was Rupert wrongly transcribed  :-\

I can't find the family on the 1841 but there is a Sir James Colleton Bt., living in Park Street, Islington, aged 55-59 and (possibly) a son Robert, aged 15-19.

Can't do any serious look ups - the weather is creating havoc with my line

Certainly a unique name, beats having a long line of ancestors with the same names and having to number them.

Following Gadget's information in the death index for 1848 in Pancras there is a James Roupel Colleton.
