Lace machine manufacturer
« on: Thursday 25 April 19 00:47 BST (UK) »
My grandfather was William Arthur Hooton and lived between 1869-1940 in Nottingham. He owned a lace machine manufacturing business
He never married but had a sister called Elizabeth Maud who married Edward Kleuser and they had 5 daughters.
I am trying to locate a picture of William Arthur for my life story which I am writing.  Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

There's a very old message on Genes Reunited that says there is "a tree on Ancestry site, with photos, and loads of info."  I subscribe to neither Ancestry nor GR so I don't know whether this is true or not.

There are a couple of lace info/museums around Nottingham. Not sure of current status. They might able to help?
Thomas, Davies, Jones, Walters, Daniel in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. That should narrow it down a bit!
Vincent: Fressingfield, Suffolk, Stockton & Sunderland.
Murtha/Murtaugh: Dundalk & Sunderland
Ingram: Cairnie by Huntly, Scotland then Abergavenny, Monmouthshire.
Bardouleau: London - in memory of my stepmother Annie Rose née Bardouleau who put up with a lot from me.

I don’t see a photograph of William on any of the Ancestry trees so far.
But they do have him with two children to Ruth Hall.

There is a photograph of this one

   HALL, GLADYS  HOOTON     - 
GRO Reference: 1915  S Quarter in NOTTINGHAM  Volume 07B  Page 760

They also have (but no photo)  a Norman William Hooton b 15 Dec 1918 from his death I presume,
But the only birth I can see is

Births Sep 1916   (>99%)
Hooton    Norman    Hall    Oldham    8d   963

And perhaps these are his parents

Marriages Mar 1905   
HOOTON    Henry   Agnes HALL     Oldham    8d   686
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.

Hi Mckha489
Thanks for the reply.
Norman William Hooton was actually my dad. He never met his biological father William Arthur Hooton who never married and never made contact with the two children he fathered.
He was a well respected businessman lace machine manufacturer in Nottingham.
