I now know Henry was Christened 4/3/1847 at Arksey, (Doncaster) Yorkshire
and his parents were James and Elizabeth.

If anyone has information of a James, Elizabeth, Henry or any Broughton with an Arksey connection I would love to hear from you.

Hi Treeroot,

1871 Census (UK) shows Henry as being single and working as a Servant at Aldbrough, Yorkshire.

1881 Census (UK) shows Henry as married but living alone at 4 Walters Tce., Newington, Yorkshire.   On this Census he is a General Labourer, born at East Halton, Lincolnshire, about 1847.

Regards, Jim

Hi Jim

Once again thanks for the info on Henry   ... I know now that his wife Hannah died in 1900, not sure if they had any children.

Then in 1902 he married for a second time, to my Great Grandmother, Ethel Sophia Fox and in 1903 my Grandad George Henry was born and the rest is as I've known it to be.

Of course now I've been bitten and I'm curious to learn more about Henry's parents and beyond  ...

I've located through the Yorkshire BMD register a Thomas Broughton marrying Elizabeth Moore in 1839 at St Georges, Doncaster    so I will now look to see if I can find anything to confirm them as Henry's parents, any suggestions?

Are you a Broughton too?  or looking for Broughtons in your family tree?

Do either of you have a James Edwin Broughton in your tree, born Hull 1906?

I can't find his parents or any siblings. (Still a newbie).  I'm told his family came from Lincs.

Thanks,
Matt
