Richard Henton - help needed to find possible marriage abroad
« on: Tuesday 23 August 16 07:04 BST (UK) »
I am needing some help please to find information for Richard Henton b 1897 in Pembrokeshire Wales, moved to New York in 1922, seemingly a married man to a lady called Assanette b 1907 Egypt with her parents being from Armenia.  I can't source a marriage license for these two (I have a feeling they married in Egypt) also would like to find the maiden name for Assanette.  It may be Piren as the us census shows they lived in a property with outer Piren family.
There are a number of passenger lists for Richard mostly in 1922 which is also hard t work out.

There is a record on FindMyPast of a marriage for Richard H Henton between 1916 and 1920 in Alexandria, Egypt.

The surname of the spouse appears to be PASHAIAN, first name Assanette

This is the GRO Consular Marriages record 1849 to 1965.  You can order certificates from the GRO.  The page number is 746 and the year range is 1916 to 1920.

One record of Richard leaving the UK is dated 24th October 1922 and he was living at Rose Cottage, Rose Bush, Maenclochog. He is on his own.

There is an earlier record for 23rd September 1922 where Richard is listed with his wife.  However there is a line through both names and NOB written which I suspect means not on board.

The Hentons are on board the Orduna that arrived in New York 7th Aug 1922
They were listed as deported. Above them and admitted were Oghaper Pachayan a 50yr old widow and her son Ohannes a 16 yr old student who were admitted.
All 4 listed the same person in Alexandria where they had all travelled from as my friend     Wgonis G Joanes  644 COY.    R.A.S.C

On Army documents in US for John Pashain as Assanettes brother now gives his name state he was born in Mouche Armenia and details all tie in with the 1922 arrival above.
 Not entirely sure Mouche is correct for spelling as cannot find  listing.

There is a family tree that says Assanette's father was Mardiros Pashaian, her mother was Youghaper, and her sister was Iskouhie Pashaian born 1905 in Armenia.  Iskouhie's husband was listed as Leon Peren, born 1890 in Armenia.

Make sure you check the 2nd pages of the passenger lists, as they provide information including who they were going to join. 

It looks like Assanette was detained, but finally admitted after this 1923 arrival - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JNGY-G6L  The manifest markings indicate that she sought naturalization circa 1942.  http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/occ/ 

Richard filed a petition for naturalization in 1929.  It says that Assanette was born 31 Jan. 1901 in Alexandria, Egypt. 

They are in Brooklyn in the 1925 New York state census - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K9BQ-4KV

On www.fultonhistory.com, try searching for the exact phrase "Richard Henton" and a number of articles come up from 1923 about the issue of Assanette not being let into the US because the quota of immigrants from Africa had already been reached.  One of the articles has a picture of her.

Their story also seems to be mentioned here - https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/87625589/  You can sort of see the text of the mention if you scroll to the bottom, and I think there is a picture in the actual image.
