Jane,

I have a distant connection with the Appletons through a side branch of my family, to Jonathan Appleton b.1750 at Harmondsworth, parents William & Mary, probably Mary's brother. I'm afraid I haven't researched that line back further as it a very remote branch, but I did find that Jonathan was a Quaker, so it would be worth looking up any Quaker records online. Sorry I can't help much further as I have suspended my Ancestry, etc. subscriptions for the summer, to allow more time for other things.

[Just noticed Jane was last online 3 months ago, and the original post was 2017! ] :-[

Hi Mike -

Is this "your" Johnathan Appleton (1750–1802 Harmondsworth ) who apparently married a Mary and had children William (1775-); Jonathan (1776–1855); William (1778–) and Mary (1780–).

Just curious, when you say remote, do you also mean indirect?

Yes, that's him.

His granddaughter, Ann Middleton Appleton, married William Westaby Stuttle (a nephew of my 4xgt. grandfather) in 1827. I haven't done much in-depth research into the family but I do have a transcript of Jonathan's will of 1802 if you are researching him.

Thanks. He isn't a direct ancestor. I do tend to cast the net wide though because there are often many clues to be had through other family members! So if his will sheds any light on his ancestry, it could be interesting.

My direct ancestor would be his sister Mary who married James David Cooper (according to what I have). I have no hint that any of this line would have been involved with the Quakers and they pretty much stayed in and around Surrey/London for the next few generations.

Jonathan's 1802 will only lists his children: William, Jonathan & Mary and his second wife Hannah. No mention of any other family members. He describes himself as a farmer of Sipson, Middlesex. It may have been his wife, Mary Percival, who was a Quaker as they had a Quaker marriage service, although his 2nd marriage and his burial were also Quaker services, possibly conducted at the Longford Meeting House which is now close to Heathrow Airport.

It is likely that Jonathan's father, William, was also a farmer/market gardener, as were Jonathan's son and grandson, both named William.

I'm afraid that is about the limit of my research.
