Gunton
« on: Tuesday 08 August 17 09:45 BST (UK) »
Folks,
William Gunton (widower) marries Mary Dodson (spinster) in 1826 in Yaxley,both OTP,witnesses Matthew Gunton,Susanna Sharman and George Sharman.Baptism of their four children in Yaxley has William's occupation as miller,last child Maria b 1834 entry as child of William and Mary of Sutton,Isle of Ely.
William's death in Peterborough in 1838 shows age at 38. He is not buried in Yaxley.Mary and her children move to Peterborough by 1841 where she is now a green grocer.
I had found a William marrying in 1824 in Chatteris but is still around in 1851.
Using archersoftware i have checked for baptism or marriage in both Sutton or Ely with negative result.
Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed.

A Matthew Gunton son of Matthew and Mary was baptised in Manea in 1803

Folks,
Ebenezer's christening and baptisms,
https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3Aebenezer~%20%2Bsurname%3Agunton~%20%2Bbirth_place%3Ahuntingdonshire%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1822-1825~

Precis;William marries Sarah in Chatteris then moves to Yaxley,Sarah dies and William marries Mary Dodson,deaths of all are recorded.
There may be three Williams,one marries Jane ???,second marries Mary Bodger,third marries Mary Hodson (our girl, should read Dodson) so there is no way of knowing where he came from.
Thank you all for your expert assistance.
