Going back a bit...the 1803 National Defence Muster list for Carlton lists a 48 year old William WHARTON, who was a gardener with 2 children still under the age of 10 [older children wern't counted as they were expected to fend for themselves]

Later, on the 21st April 1817 in the next parish of Stevington, a 19 year old William WHARTON volunteers for the Militia.

I think the second William who joined the Militia aged 19 in 1817 was Edward's brother?

The IGI site is down at the moment but I did see a christening for William [jr] in 1798 which seems to fit in with age on Muster list & census in Surrey?

The WHARTON family appear to have lived in Carlton for some generations; on the A2A site there was a Sam WHARTON, yeoman, and his wife who were charged with not attending church in the 1660s [I expect they were baptists as many people were? ]
