Gaaah! I am going the pianoforte route.......there was a William Vernon pianoforte maker at 15 Plumbers Row ,City Rd London.Also a Charles Venables in Essex Rd Islington ( there was a Venables Vernon line).
George Edwin was said to be a confectioner whereas Harry James is a piano fitter upper- in keeping with what my Grandfather talked of.Father was elderly and had a large circle of musical friends that would come to their home.

George Edwin Bolton was a confectioner on marriage in 1887, but not for long.  He was an engineer on the 1892 and 1893 baptisms of his children found on the old thread.  Itís still a leap to piano-related work but as technical work itís not inconceivable that he moved into that sort of job.

Yes don't think that could be her.
Have managed to track down the great-great grandson of Amy Elizabeth-Sarah Amy Cook & George Edwin's daughter born in 1888.He has a birth certificate showing Amy Elizabeth as his great grandfather's mother.Hoping feverently that he may know some more.Surely there will be some family gossip passed down through the years?!! ;D

Ignore me I've lost the plot............I need food. ;D ;D ;D
restore a plot is an anagram of reel pot roast  ;D ;D ;D
(this is why my family history takes so long to find - my mind wanders off in weird directions).

But seriously - don't discount the idea of a name change.  After many years of me headbutting a brick wall Rootschatters proved that my g-grandfather had changed his name (after deserting from the Navy - shock! horror!)
Please help me to help you by citing sources for information.

I know...it would kind of make sense but I have DNA matches to Vernons so this makes me question a name change.Odd that my Grandfather doesn't appear on anyone elses trees but Mother and sisters do.I would have thought this would indicate another Father and some sort of scandal.

As we know he's around in London till 1929,then vanishes, I wonder if he did something 'naughty' and changed his name to escape the publicity?
