Edward James ("Ted") Claxton
« on: Monday 20 June 05 16:50 BST (UK) »
James Claxton m. Mary Ann Watson in 1802 in Swanton-Abbott. Their son, John Claxton m. Martha Dunton.  Their address:  Back Lane, Swaffham. (1) No baptisms present before his birthday. Owner, The Kings Arms Hotel, Lynn Street on Market Place 1840-45. http://www.norfolkpubs.co.uk/norfolks/swaffham/swaffka.htm . . .
Their son, Edward James ("Ted") Claxton, b. 05MAR1841, Swaffham, Norfolk, East Angelia, England, m. Matilda "Tillie" Roseltha Roberts, 23APR1866, Brantford, Norfolk, Ontario, CANADA, d. APRIL 1926, Brantford, Norfolk, Ontario, CANADA. Brother of Edward James ("Ted") Claxton is George John Claxton m. Emily Elizabeth Parfrey on 24Jan1856 in Swaffham.

I am trying to find the parents of James Claxton.

Also, any information relating to the ancestors of Emily is of interest as well.

Hi,
Im not quite sure what you are looking for: is it information on the Claxtons in Ontario or the ancestry of James Claxton and Emily Parfrey in Norfolk, England?

If it is Ontario, information on Edward Claxton and family is available for three census years (1871, 81 and 1901) and a Norfolk County Genealogy site. Id be more than happy to post the links if you are interested.

Hi Howard,
I see that you have the 1881 Census information.  Edward is also on the 1871 Census for Ontario, which only lists the head of the household:
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/020108_e.html

1901 Census for Ontario:
http://automatedgenealogy.com/census/cache/index.html
This has a transcription of the census as well as a link to the actual census image from the Canadian Archives site. Edward is listed as E.J. Claxton with Matilda and Ira. Looking at the image, the date entered for the year Edward came to Canada is 1857.

Keeping in mind that dates written are not always the true dates, results from a search for Claxton from The Ships List, http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/Arrivals/Canada1857.htm, has two Claxtons arriving in 1857: a Mr. Claxton arriving on the Anglo-Saxon, and a T.J. (could it be E.J.?) Claxton arriving on the North American.

The Norfolk Genealogy site (Ontario), http://www.nornet.on.ca/~jcardiff/index1.html, has information on two of your Claxtons under the BMD section.

If you have trouble navigating any of these sites, please let me know.

Good luck,
