Thornton Melton married Maria Allen in Scarborough in 1837. Their eldest son, Thomas, was bap. in Scarborough on 02/02/1838, and married Elizabeth Milson on 7/10/1856. In 1871, Thomas and Eliza lived in North Street, Scarborough, with the following children:
Mary Jane
Thornton
Thomas
William
Maria
Eliza
Robert
I am interested because the younger Thornton (Thomas's son, born c. 1860) was my great-grandmother's legal husband (he m. Sarah Jane Nichols in 1881, but she contracted a bigamous marriage with my great-grandfather John Thomas Todd in 1905, claiming to be a widow!). However, he had a relative of the same name, the son of David Melton (b. 1825 was he a brother or nephew of Thornton snr?) and similar age.
One of the Thornton Meltons died in 1906 in Scarborough, aged 45, the other in 1930 in Sheffield, aged 70-71, and I'm trying to sort out which was my great-grandmother's husband!

Hi,

Over on Familysearch there's an intriguing record for a baptism for Maria Allan on 22/2/1807 in Scarborough - parents Richard & Maria.
Could they be yours?

I have seen Maria Melton on the Scarborough 1841 census (transcribed Milton) age 30 with Thornton Milton age 30 ropemaker & Thomas age 3.

1851 has only Maria age 44 & Thomas age 13 in Scarborough & in 1861 she's by herself age 54 in Scarborough- the census age could suggest she was born 1807.

There's a record of burial on familysearch for Thornton Melton first quarter 1851.

Also there's a marriage for a Richard Allen to Maria Arnet on 27/1/1805 in Scarborough.

hope this helps

That looks like them!
The bad transcriptions of Melton are a pain re: census searches online: Milton, Mellon, even Matson. I found Thomas's wife Eliza with Thornton jnr in 1861 under 'Matson'!
