Do you have the marriage certificate of William Donkin & Mary Jane Straker? If so what details do they give please.


This William is not our man. he appears on 1901 census with wife & family as a railway signalman as per Tamor's probate record.


John Winship married Jane Kitching sq 1864.

Re the 1871 census I believe Emily Winship aged 9 c1862 to be Emily Kitching

KITCHING, EMILY       -  no mother's maiden name recorded
GRO Reference: 1861  J Quarter in SKIRLAUGH  Volume 09D  Page 231


Probably William on 1891 census
RG12; Piece: 3947; Folio: 53; Page: 16;

1871 census


Tamor has mmn Kitching born 1867 Scarborough
William has mmn Kitchen born 1869 Scarborough


if I'm reading this right we have a William b 1898(UK?) , a John Joshua 1899 mmn Eggers and then a Thomas 1901 South Africa??

Believe the family sailed from Southampton on the 7.7.1900 to the Cape on the Dunvegan Castle.

Mr W winship aged 28 = c1872  occ Dealer  ( a carpenter when he marries)
Mrs E Winship aged 26
Master W        aged 2
Master J          aged 1

Are we possibly looking for alater birth for William snr??

It's been an interesting search for the Donkins, and I just wondered a couple of things that you probably have an answer to. When George 1870 married Mary Hannah Laing in 1892 what did he record his father's occ as.

In 1881 Ann/Elizabeths 2 siblings John & George  in the household of a George Donkin & Isabella (nee' Jennings. Interesting census ref RG11 5035 63 4

Are you aware of another 3 Donkin/Straker births other than those known.

Finally are you convinced that William Donkin Ann's father was born in York, I must admit i'm not for various reasons.
