Thomas WHEATLEY or WHEATON (bc 1700-1754) and Ann SPARROW

Descendants of Thomas WHEATLEY or WHEATON
Generation No. 1

1. Thomas1 WHEATLEY or  WHEATON was born Abt. 1700, and died September 1754 in Hilton, Huntingdonshire. He married (1) Ann SPARROW 13 May 1726 in St Mary Magdelene, Hilton, Huntingdonshire, daughter of William SPARROW and Sarah SPARROW. She was born Abt. 1706 in Possible daughter, and died October 1734 in Hilton, Huntingdonshire. He married (2) Elizabeth HAROP 28 April 1746 in St Mary Magdelene, Hilton, Huntingdonshire. She was born Abt. 1700, and died September 1754 in Hilton, Huntingdonshire.

Notes for Thomas WHEATLEY or WHEATON:
1726 Marriage Licence shows the name as WHEATON. The 1726 Marriage register entry shows the name as WHEATLEY.
1728- Will – Richard SPARROW, gent, Hilton, Huntingdonshire. Property left to Ann, wife of Thomas WHEATON, shepherd. Ann WHEATON inherited from Richard SPARROW “my cottage or tenement situate and being in Hilton, together with the Close of pasture grounds and orchard near hereunto adjoining with all and singular Commons and appurtenances belonging to the late J Gore(?) and now in the occupation of Thomas WHEATON”. From the information we have so far collected we are assuming Ann was Richard’s granddaughter, the daughter of his natural son, William.
1746 Marriage Register entry shows the name as WHEATLEY.
1754 – Will – Thomas WHEATON, shepherd, Hilton, Huntingdonshire. Items left to daughters Ann BRACE and Elizabeth WHEATON, wife Elizabeth WHEATON and son William WHEATON.

THOMAS WHEATON c1700 – 1754
There was obviously confusion about the surname of our Thomas. In the early eighteenth century WHEATON was not a name used in Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire, but there were many WHEATLEYs. In legal documents, such as the Marriage Licence, and the Wills of Richard SPARROW and Thomas himself, his name appears as WHEATON. It is also WHEATON in the marriage register for his daughter and in the burial register at the time of the death of Thomas and his second wife. However, in the baptism register, the 1726 and 1746 marriages and the 1734 burial registers of the Hilton parish his name is written as WHEATLEY. Thomas signed his marriage licence with a cross, so could not read or write. We assume that the parish clerk, unfamiliar with the name WHEATON had written WHEATLEY in the registers, and Thomas, unable to read, did not correct the mistake.

Thomas first appears in Huntingdonshire when his daughter Anne WHEATLEY was baptised in the church of St Mary Magdalene, in Hilton, on the 10th April 1726.

It would seem likely that his father was not with Thomas in Huntingdonshire, because a few weeks later, on the 12th May 1726, it was not his father, but Bardolph CATER who is shown as standing surety for Thomas WHEATON on a marriage licence.

The only clues about a connection between Thomas WHEATON and Bardolph CATER come from the latter’s Will, dated the 30th May 1781. He left his property to his niece, Eleanor GRAVES, whose husband William was a Butcher in 1762 the same year that Eleanor had married in Houghton, Huntingdonshire where her father lived at the time of his death. William WHEATON, the son of Thomas WHEATON, was a Butcher and he was in Houghton in 1767. Was Bardolph CATER a family friend, and were he and his family in some way still responsible for the family of Thomas at this time? It seems unlikely that we shall ever know!

On the day following the date on the licence, and a month after the baptism of his daughter, Thomas WHEATLEY married Ann(e) SPARROW in Hilton. We learn later that Thomas was a shepherd and we understand that good shepherds were much respected members of the community, although probably not in this case as Ann(e) SPARROW belonged to one of the wealthiest families in Hilton and the circumstances surrounding the birth of her daughter and her marriage might not have encouraged the people of Hilton to be too enthusiastic about the newcomer, Thomas WHEATON.

The job of a shepherd involved much more than just watching the sheep eat the grass. Before the lambs were born there was work to do in erecting the sheepfold of hurdles to protect the ewes and where the shepherd could keep an eye on the newly born lambs. To ensure the animals had enough to eat sheepfolds were erected in fields and moved around to obtain the greatest benefit. The sheepfold was also used for selecting the animals which were to be driven to market or to the annual sheep fair. These were usually great social events, with sideshows, races, tugs of war, and lots of ale to drink. They were also places to meet old friends. However the prime purpose of the fair was for the sale of the animals which the shepherd had cared for during the year, undertaking such activities as shearing, branding, tail docking, treating them when they were attacked by disease, introducing new animals for rearing, as well as searching for those which were lost. The shepherd would usually be accompanied by his dog and carry a crook, but other equipment included lanterns, bells, shears, branding equipment, saw for trimming overgrown horns, salve box for ointment, drenching horns for medicine, brazier and docking irons. I wonder if Thomas wore a smock? These were usually made from five rectangular pieces of hemp or flax which had been spun at home. They were made large to allow for freedom of movement and the garment was reversible. On the chest and cuffs and where the sleeves join the shoulders, there would have been gathering with a smocking stitch which varied from smock to smock, and county to county.

On the 20th August 1729 Richard SPARROW was buried in Hilton and in his will he left property to “Ann WHEATON, wife of Thomas WHEATON shepherd”. Was Richard Ann(e)’s grandfather? If not, why was the property left to her? Most of Richard’s property was left to his natural son William SPARROW and the change in ownership is noted in the Court Rolls, although there is no reference to Ann(e) WHEATON acquiring the ownership of the property mentioned in the Will. So, in 1729 was Thomas WHEATON living with his wife Ann(e) in Hilton, in the “cottage with adjoining close, pasture ground and orchard” left to Ann(e) by Richard SPARROW? Or had the executor of the Will, William SPARROW, the natural son, not carried out his father’s wishes?

In the following year Thomas and Ann(e) baptised a second daughter, Elizabeth WHEATLEY. A son, William, was then born within the next two years, and was buried in Hilton on the 22nd August 1732. This was followed a few months later, on the 3rd December 1732 by the baptism of another son, again called William WHEATLEY.

Ann(e) did not survive the birth of this son for very long and was buried at the church of St Mary Magdalene, Hilton on the 27th October 1734 leaving Thomas with two young daughters and a baby, Anne aged eight, Elizabeth aged four and William aged two. Who helped Thomas look after his young family? We have not found a family for either Thomas or Ann(e). There does not appear to be any references to this family in the Parish Records showing that they were in need of assistance, so perhaps there were aunts or neighbours who were able to help. Within a few years it is probable that his daughter, Anne, was able to take on some of the household duties.

Twelve years after the death of his first wife Thomas WHEATLEY married again, to Elizabeth HAROP, on the 28th April 1746 in Hilton parish church. At this time, daughter Anne was twenty years old, surely old enough to run the household. I wonder if she was pleased to have another woman in the home? Anne did not marry for another four years and is shown as Anne WHEATON in the parish register for her marriage to Richard BRACE in Hilton on the 28th October 1750.

There is no indication that Elizabeth (who was still single in 1754) or her brother, William, remained at home with their father Thomas and his wife, but all three of Thomas’s children were mentioned in his Will which was dated 3rd April 1754. In it he left one guinea to Anne BRACE, five pounds to Elizabeth WHEATON and the rest of his goods, chattels and personal estate to his son, William. There was also a bequest of fifteen shillings a year to his wife, Elizabeth, but Thomas was buried on the 3rd September of that year, to be followed two days later by his wife.

In his Will there is no mention of the property which was left by Richard SPARROW to Ann(e) SPARROW. William WHEATON, Thomas’s son, did not remain in Hilton parish long after the death of his father. He may have been in Grantham in Lincolnshire in 1758, before moving to Woodhurst where he was married in 1761. So if the property did come to Ann(e) SPARROW, what had happened for the family to have lost it probably by 1754? Or if Thomas had made it over to William during his life time, what did William do to lose it before he left Hilton to begin his married life in the parish of Woodhurst?

In an attempt to discover the birth place of Thomas his Marriage Allegation and Bond was studied further. It was found that a Bardolph CATER stood surety for him for the licence. Through the Latter Day Saints’ Web page it was found that the family of Bardolph CATER was being researched by Dr Jon MARTIN. Contact has been made with him, and two others also interested in this family, but the information we received did not provide us with any clues.

However, Bardolph CATER died in 1781. His Will was dated the 30th May 1781. He was a Whitesmith. He left his property to his niece, Eleanor GRAVES, who had married William GRAVES, a Butcher of Huntingdon in 1762. Eleanor was the daughter of Bardolph’s brother, James, and had married in Houghton, Huntingdonshire in 1762 where her father lived at the time of his death. Property was also left to friends Thomas PATTISON, Richard BALE, Henry WATSON, Philip OLIVER, Baker of Huntingdon, Mary SAMMS, Housekeeper, and his brother, John CATER.

James CATER of Houghton with Witton, Blacksmith, left his property to his wife Ann. Ann, of All Saints, Huntingdon then left the property to her four granddaughters, Ann, Ellen, Susanna and Sarah, the daughters of her son-in-law, William GRAVES.

William WHEATON, the son of Thomas was in Houghton in 1767. His mother was left property in Hilton, and William inherited all his father’s assets, but he left Hilton, was married in Woodhurst in 1761, had a child there in 1762 and then appears in Houghton in 1767. Was Bardolph CATER a family friend, and were he and his family still looking after the family of Thomas at this time?

More questions, as ever!

Information from John TERRY
On the 1st January 2014 we added Angel as a child of this family, our reasoning for doing this is as follows:
The DNA of Dennis WHEATON (WHEATON 0200), a descendant of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW matches the DNA of a descendant of Angel’s (WHEATON 0337)….so they must have a common ancestor
…….The earliest information we have for Angel is the baptism of his son (another Angel) in 1764.
…….I therefore made Angel senior’s birth about 1739 but that is purely an approximation, he could have been born earlier.
…….There is no other information (marriage or deaths) for Angel senior and his wife Elizabeth
…….This is the reason that I think it probable that Angel was the same man as William born 1732, son of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW (WHEATON 0900) (See Angel WHEATON for full investigation notes)
…….We have a marriage for this William, and deaths for both him and his wife Elizabeth (WHEATON 0800)
…….However, without evidence I don’t think they can be merged
…….But given the dates and location and the fact that there are no other WHEATON families in Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire at this time….
…….I think that even if William and Angel are not the same man, Angel must be a son of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW
……Therefore, in my file, I have added Angel to the family of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW making him child number five.

2. William2 WHEATLEY or WHEATON (Thomas WHEATLEY1) was born 1732 in Hilton, Huntingdonshire, and died May 1780 in Somersham, Huntingdonshire age 48. He married (1) Mary MACKNESS 5 December 1758 in All Saints, Pidley-cum-Fenton, Huntingdonshire as WHEATON, daughter of John MAKERNES and Mary WISEMAN. She was born Bef. October 1735 in Pidley, Huntingdonshire, and died February 1761. He married (2) Elizabeth WHITTLESEY or WHITTLESE 24 June 1761 in St John the Baptist, Woodhurst, Huntingdonshire as WHEATON, daughter of Robert WHITTLESEY and Catherine ANGEL. She was born Abt. 1741 in Woodhurst, Huntingdonshire, and died December 1802 in Somersham, Huntingdonshire age 62?.

WILLIAM WHEATON 1732 – 1780
William WHEATON was baptised in Hilton, Huntingdonshire on the 3rd December 1732. He appears to be the fourth child born to Thomas WHEATON and his wife Ann(e) SPARROW. He had two older sisters, Anne and Elizabeth and would have had a brother, except that he, also called William, was buried in the August before the younger William was born. This other William would have been at least eight months old when he died, and Thomas and Ann obviously decided to give the same name to the baby born within months of the death of their first son. Perhaps the name was that of Thomas’s father; it could also have been the name of Ann(e)’s parent if she was the daughter of Richard SPARROW’s natural son, William.

Before William was two years old his mother had died and as his father did not re-marry for another twelve years William must have been cared for by members of his mother’s or father’s family, or perhaps neighbours, before his sister Anne was old enough to assume the responsibility. Then, eight years after his father’s remarriage in 1746, and when William was twenty two years old, both his father and his step-mother died and were buried on the 3rd and 5th of September 1754 respectively.

William’s childhood, therefore, seems to have been rather unsettled but things should have improved after the death of his father who made him executor of his Will and after small bequests for Anne and Elizabeth left all his goods to William. There ought to have been a cottage so William should have been able to continue to live in Hilton, but he does not appear to have stayed there and he is not traced until he married in Woodhurst in 1761.

We do have some puzzling information at this point, besides wondering what happened to the cottage. And why did William leave Hilton? And where did he go? And how did he earn a living?

There was a William WEATON living in Woodhurst at this time. He married a Mary MACKNESS and baptised two sons, John and Thomas on the 5th February 1761. On the same date William buried his wife Mary, and his son John was buried on the 17th May 1761. We had thought that this was a first marriage for “our” William, but the banns for the marriage of William WHEATON and Elizabeth WHITTLESEY were published on the 7th, 14th and 21st January 1761, before the death of Mary MACKNESS and at his marriage William is not shown as a widower. (We have since found out that the banns were called in June 1761, after the death – just – of Mary. Given that there are no WHEATON marriages in the counties of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire before this time it would suggest that this other William is connected to our Thomas. And what happened to Thomas the son of William and Mary MACKNESS? No details of a burial have been found, but there does not appear to be any descendants either.)

As we were having difficulty in finding the birth of our Thomas we started looking at the records of other counties and in the archives of Lincoln record office was found a baptism in Grantham on the 9th January 1758 for a Willm WHEATON, son of Willm and Eliz. WHEATON. No other WHEATON references could be found for this period. Originally it was thought that this could be a first child for William and Elizabeth WHITTLESEY, but she would have only been fourteen or fifteen years old. This matter was raised with the Lincolnshire Record Office Archivist, with this response:

“If the child baptised at Grantham in 1758 is part of the family of William WHEATON who married Elizabeth WHITTLESEY in 1761, who can say if it is the same Elizabeth? There is no reason why he could not have been married to a lady of the same name, buried her, and married again in 1761. If his first wife died away from Woodhurst, and the locals never knew of a first marriage (especially if the child also died) he could be called “bachelor” on the marriage to Elizabeth WHITTLSEY.

Another possibility is that Elizabeth WHITTLESEY was the mother of the child baptised at Grantham, but the couple did not mention that they were not married – or maybe the question never arose! The legal age for marriage was 12 for girls and 14 for boys, so Elizabeth could be the child’s mother. Baptism does not always take place soon after birth. In some families several months or even years might elapse, so we cannot be certain that Elizabeth WHITTLESEY (if mother of the Grantham child) was only 14 in 1761.

I cannot prove that the Grantham couple is the same as your Woodhurst couple. Equally I cannot be certain that the William in both places is the same man with two wives of the same name. I can say that only the one event is recorded in the Grantham registers, and it was a very busy town with a degree of transient population due to its location on the Great North Road. The Grantham William could have died before the appearance of the 1762 William or, can we really be certain that the 1762 baptism is for a baby rather than a toddler? (my note: Given the marriage date I think he was a baby) We could be working with more “ifs” and “buts”.”

As always, more questions every time you find one answer! Obviously more research is required!

Whatever the outcome of the above, William WHEATON married Elizabeth WHITTLESEY with consent of parents as she was only about eighteen years old. The ceremony took place at the church of St John the Baptist in Woodhurst on the 24th June 1761 and the witnesses were William MORVILL and William TOBIAS.

Within the year William and Elizabeth had baptised a son, another William. We have no clues as to the occupation of William senior, although all four of his sons become butchers. Was that William’s occupation too? Whatever he did to earn his living he was obviously not being successful in Woodhurst, for we next find him and his wife, baptising their second son, John, on the 25th May 1767 in Houghton in Huntingdonshire. Again, there are questions! There is a gap of five years between the two boys, William and John. Did William senior and Elizabeth have no children during that time? Or shall we eventually find them in some other county? (My theory is that William was known as Angel, and he and Elizabeth had a son, another Angel in 1764 in Wyton, Huntingdonshire. This Angel was the ancestor of a WHEATON family who emigrated in the 1820s to America)

By 1769 the WHEATON family had moved to Somersham where William remained for the rest of his life. In fact the WHEATON family stayed in this parish for the next hundred years. William and Elizabeth’s next child, Robert, died probably within days of his birth in 1769 but there followed two daughters and two sons who eventually lived to adulthood. Unfortunately, William did not live to see his children grow up and marry. He died at the age of 48 years and was buried on the 18th May 1780 at St John the Baptist in Somersham. His eighth child, and third daughter, Mary, had been baptised on the 7th February, three months before her father’s death, and she was buried on the 30th September, four months afterwards, as the “daughter of Elizabeth”.

So a similar situation had arisen in this generation as had occurred in the previous one, only this time it was the wife, Elizabeth, who was left with a young family, William (18), John (13), Elizabeth (10), Robert (8). Ann (6) and Philip (3). Again, there are no references in the parish records which show that Elizabeth was asking for help from the parish. Her father made a Will in 1765 in which he left £5 (worth £876.11 in 2019) to Elizabeth’s son William, so perhaps her family were able to help her look after the younger children. Her son William at eighteen, and maybe John at thirteen, could already have been earning. William certainly established himself in Somersham as a butcher, whilst eventually the other sons, John, Robert and Philip became butchers in Colne, Bluntisham and Chatteris respectively.

Elizabeth continued to live in the village where she died aged 62, twenty two years after her husband, and was buried on the 7th December 1802 at the church of St John the Baptist in Somersham, Huntingdonshire.

Notes for Thomas WHEATON:
We have not found any further details for Thomas. His mother died before he was baptised, his father remarried five months later, and his new bride was 18 years old so probably was not eager to look after someone else’s child. Was Thomas brought up by his own mother’s family? If so, perhaps he used their name of MACKNESS.

Notes for Angel WHEATON:
1 January 2014
The following are notes added to my brother’s web site summarising the situation about the identification of a family for Angel. A more detailed explanation is below dated Marcn 2002 :-
On the 1st January 2014 we connected Angel as a child of the family on WHEATON Chart 0900, our reasoning for doing this is as follows:
My sister writes (the wife of Dennis WHEATON on WHEATON Chart 0200)
…….The DNA of Dennis WHEATON (WHEATON 0200), a descendant of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW matches the DNA of a descendant of Angel’s (WHEATON 0337)….so they must have a common ancestor
…….The earliest information we have for Angel is the baptism of his son (another Angel) in 1764.
…….I therefore made Angel senior’s birth about 1739 but that is purely an approximation, he could have been born earlier.
…….There is no other information (marriage or deaths) for Angel senior and his wife Elizabeth
…….This is the reason that I think it probable that Angel was the same man as William born 1732, son of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW (WHEATON 0900)
…….We have a marriage for this William, and deaths for both him and his wife Elizabeth (WHEATON 0800) (See below for full explanation)
…….However, without evidence I don’t think they can be merged
…….But given the dates and location and the fact that there are no other WHEATON families in Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire at this time….
…….I think that even if William and Angel are not the same man, Angel must be a son of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW
……Therefore, in my file, I have added Angel to the family of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW making him child number five.

9 November 2013
Below is the question “Where does Angel fit in?
This morning I received the information that the DNA of Howell WHEATON, a descendant of Angel WHEATON, matched the DNA of my husband, Dennis WHEATON, a descendant of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW. We have no record of the birth of Angel WHEATON but he must be a son of Thomas, the about 1739 birth date shown is just an approximation. So, was he the same man as the William born in 1732? We shall probably never know but for the time being Angel has been added as another child of Thomas. (Ann had died in 1734)

The DNA of a descendant of the other WHEATON who went from Cambridgeshire to the USA in the 1830s also matches Den’s, so descendants of that John are also related to Den, and now to the descendants of Angel.

March 2002
SO WHERE DOES ANGEL FIT IN TO THE HUNTINGDONSHIRE/CAMBRIDGESHIRE WHEATON FAMILY?

Obviously I have thought about this ever since first Aaron, then later Steve and Carol, Jim and Brent contacted me as descendants of Angel WHEATON from Cambridgeshire.

I have been researching WHEATONs in the Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire areas since 1983, and I have a cousin, found through family history research, who is a professional researcher based mainly in the Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire Record Offices. She sends me all the WHEATON references she finds and so I have accumulated a considerable amount of information. My earliest WHEATON record is that of the marriage between Den’s Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW in Hilton, Huntingdonshire in 1726. After that time all the WHEATONs in the two counties are descendants of Thomas, except two families, both of which went to America, that of John WHEATON and Sarah CLARKE, and that of Angel WHEATON and Elizabeth. (11/2/2010 – we have now been able to prove that the John WHEATON is part of Den’s family)

It is probably possible to fit John into my WHEATON family, but we have been unable to find the baptism (estimated to be about 1739). marriage (before 1764) or burial for the earliest Angel, nor can we find the burial for his wife Elizabeth. With so much WHEATON information available, why are these details still missing? I have long considered this problem and have arrived at the following idea. There is no way this can be proved, but I thought I would share it with you.

My Thomas and his wife Ann SPARROW had four children, Ann, Elizabeth, William, who died as a baby, and a second William baptised in 1732. The mother died when William was two years old and his sisters were eight and six years of age. Father Thomas was a shepherd. How was he able to continue this occupation with such small children? It is more than likely that either a relative, or a friend looked after them because, as yet, we have not found anything in parish records which suggests they were looked after through the means of the parish.

Thomas died in 1754. Thomas’s son, William, baptised 1732, was married in 1761 in Woodhurst to Elizabeth WHITTLESEY, (whose mother was Catherine ANGEL), and their first child (another William) was baptised in the same parish in 1762. The next record we have for William and Elizabeth is in 1767 in Houghton where they baptised another son, John. So, there is a gap of five years between the baptisms of William (1762) and John (1767). After the baptism of John in Houghton William and Elizabeth then moved to Somersham where their next son was baptised in 1769. William and Elizabeth were buried in Somersham in 1780 and 1802 respectively, but various WHEATON families, all descendants of Thomas and Ann SPARROW, lived in that village for the next one hundred and fifty years.

Turning to Angel and Elizabeth, the earliest record we have for them is the baptism of their son Angel in 1764 in the parish of Witton. This is the next parish to Houghton (where William and Elizabeth baptised son John in 1767), so close that in many records they are shown as “Houghton and Witton (or Wytton)”. The Angel WHEATON baptised in 1764 married Mary LEAKE in Somersham in 1787, at a time when several of William and Elizabeth’s children were also marrying in the Somersham parish church.

Several questions arise, one of which has already been stated, why no deaths for the earliest Angel and Elizabeth when burials for all the other WHEATONs have been found? The only Elizabeth burial at about the right time was that of Elizabeth WHEATON (née WHITTLESEY), wife of the William born 1732, son of Thomas. Given that Angel and Elizabeth’s son had married in Somersham, and then lived in Chatteris, why was there no second Elizabeth WHEATON burial in either parish? By quite a long route, I then wondered if perhaps there was only one Elizabeth, that the first Angel was given his name as a nickname and thus, I arrived at the idea that maybe Angel was the same person as William, baptised in 1732, son of Thomas WHEATON and Ann SPARROW.

So this is my story…….

When Thomas’s wife died in 1734 a friend in Woodhurst possibly looked after all of Thomas’s children, or maybe just the baby, William. They were Robert WHITTLESEY and his wife Catherine (née ANGEL). (In his Will Robert WHITTLESEY left money to William’s son but to none of the descendants of Thomas’s other children). It could be that it was at this time the baby came to be called “Angel”, either perhaps because of his adoptive mother’s maiden name, or because he looked like one! He grew up with the WHITTLESEYs and married Elizabeth, one of the daughters of the family, in Woodhurst where her family lived and where they ensured that his correct name, William, was used in the parish register, as they did when his son, another William, was baptised in 1762. Then William and Elizabeth moved away from Woodhurst, and when they baptised their second son, Angel, in 1764 in Witton, there were no grandparents or guardians there to remind William/Angel to use his baptismal name, so his name as father of the baby was entered as Angel. When the next child was baptised in 1767 William/Angel remembered to give his correct name, as he did for the rest of his life. This would also have been a sensible thing to do as otherwise there would have been two Angels in the family!

How does this fit in with the information we have acquired?

Angel and Elizabeth baptised their son Angel in Witton in 1764 and it is from this information that the date of birth of the father Angel was estimated as 1739. William was baptised in 1732, but as the 1764 baptism for his son Angel would, if William and Angel were the same man, have been that of a second child, it is quite possible for Angel to have been born before 1739 so that Angel and William could have been the same person.

We need to look for a marriage before 1764, but there is no Angel WHEATON/Elizabeth marriage at any time. Could the William WHEATON/Elizabeth WHITTLESEY marriage in 1761 be the one for which we are looking?

There is a gap in William WHEATON and Elizabeth (née WHITTLESEY)’s family between the baptisms of William in 1762 and John in 1767 into which the 1764 baptism of Angel WHEATON, son of Angel and Elizabeth, would fit.

William and Elizabeth’s family were living in Somersham from 1769. They and their descendants were the only WHEATON family in that parish baptising children for the next one hundred and fifty years. Angel (baptised 1764 in Witton) married Mary LEAKE in Somersham in 1787, so, given that WHEATON is such an uncommon name, it would be odd if Angel did not belong to the same family.

William, the father, baptised 1732 was buried in Somersham in 1780. As we have not found a burial for Angel (the father), if Angel and William were the same man, this could be Angel’s burial. Similarly, the 1802 burial for Elizabeth WHEATON, if William and Angel are the same man, this could be for Elizabeth WHITTLESEY as well as Elizabeth the wife of Angel, the father.

Angel (baptised 1764) obviously moved to Chatteris after his marriage. Of the sons of William and Elizabeth, William (baptised 1762) stayed in Somersham, John (baptised 1767) went to Earith and Colne, Robert (baptised 1772) went to Bluntisham, and Philip (baptised 1777) went to Chatteris. This is the Philip about whom information was collected by individuals researching Angel’s family as they thought there might be a connection. If Angel was actually Philip’s older brother this would of course explain the reason for such a belief.

Angel, the son born 1764, called his first son Thomas, possibly after his grandfather WHEATON? He called his second son William, which could be after his father if William and Angel are the same man, He then called his daughters Elizabeth, after his mother, and Mary, after his wife, and then his youngest son was called Robert. This could have been after Robert WHITTLESEY who may have acted as guardian to William/Angel whilst he was still a child and would have been the Angel (baptised 1764)’s grandfather.

The younger Angel’s son, William, and his sons, John and Thomas, went to America in the late 1820s; if William (born 1762) and this Angel are the same man, nephews John (with his son John), Daniel and sons of Daniel’s sister Elizabeth also went to America (in the 1840s and 1850s) as did the the daughter of the Philip mentioned above whilst it is also probable that three of her brothers made the same journey as there are no later records for them in this country. (records have since been found that at least two of them went to America)

If the foregoing was the case, then the Elizabeth WHEATON (daughter of Angel baptised 1764) who married William WHITTLESEY with Francis HIDE as witness, would have been the first cousin of the Elizabeth WHEATON (daughter of William baptised 1762), who married Francis HIDE. It would also mean that Angel’s descendant, William who went to Indiana in the 1820s, would bave been the first cousin of Daniel who went to Ohio in 1851. And it could also be that the same William, who went to Indiana in the 1820s, was a cousin of the John WHEATON (married to Sarah CLARKE) who went to Ohio in the late 1840s!
But that is another story!

1821/1823
In 1821 a William WHEATON was charged on two occasions with Larceny. We are not too sure which William WHEATON is involved. The father would have been 59 years old and the son 32. One of the charges refers to William as a “Yeoman” which could indicate the Father William who seemed to be a respected citizen, but he could have thought an injustice was being done and tried to right it. Son William married in 1821 in Bluntisham, but then this could have been the incident which made him move from Somersham. The man in the second charge was a Butcher, which could have applied to both and could indicate that two different Williams were involved in the two events, except that the wording of the outcome of the case indicated that the accused was the same man in both cases.

The first crime which one or other of them had committed was opening the Pound and rescuing a horse lawfully impounded by Edward GEESON. On the second occasion William rescued two ewes and two lambs belonging to John LEEDS Yeoman. John LEEDS had impounded the animals as a “distress for damage done by wrongful grazing”. Both charges were considered to be a “True Bill”.

On the 16th October 1821 William WHEATON was prosecuted at the Huntingdon Michaelmas Quarter Session. His crime was “a Pound Breach”. The prosecution was brought by the Trustees of the Somersham Road, the “Bill was found” and a “Bench Warrant” was to be sent. In the margin were the words “pd for”.

On the 15th January 1822 William WHEATON was again prosecuted for a similar offence. He was found guilty, fined £5 and committed until the fine was paid. When the money was paid an order was made for his discharge, and the second indictment abandoned.

At the Hurstingstone Petty Session for July and August 1827 a William WHEATON was found guilty of having defective weights and false and unequal balances. He was fined £1. The following is from the catalogue for this instance which indicates that William was not alone in being convicted, but his was the highest fine.

WILLIAM WHEATON 1762 – 1836
William was baptised on the 24th June 1762 in Woodhurst, Huntingdonshire. By 1767 the family were in Houghton where John, a brother for William, was baptised. Two years later they had moved again to Somersham where a third boy, Robert was baptised. The baby was buried within a few days of his baptism, but it appears that Williams’ parents had decided that they were going to remain in the village of Somersham and not continue their wanderings.

After the death of baby Robert there were other brothers and sisters for William and John; Elizabeth in 1770, Robert in 1772, Ann in 1774 and Philip in 1777. By 1780 William could have already been earning his living, and if not, the events of that year would surely have meant that he had to work. His parents baptised another daughter, Mary on the 7th February 1780, but three months later the family were returning to the church for the funeral of their father who died aged 48 years. Within another few months the new baby was also buried.

Whether William, the father, was a butcher in Somersham we do not know, but that is the occupation which was followed by all four of his sons. William, the son, stayed in Somersham, John went to Colne, Robert to Bluntisham, and Philip to Chatteris.

Within four years of his father’s death William married Rebecca CHURCH in Somersham on the 19th October 1784 with witnesses William WHITTLESEY and Mary MORLAND, but Rebecca died two years after the wedding. Three years later William married again to Ann GUNTON on the 7th November 1787. This time the witnesses were Elizabeth GUNTON, Jane WHITE and the curate, John WILLIAMS. This would seem to be the start of a happier period for the WHEATON family as William’s brothers and sisters married, and William and Ann’s family grew. Their first son (William) was baptised in December 1789 to be followed by four more sons, and five daughters, one of whom died at the age of one year, so of their ten children nine survived to become adults and to marry.

A seemingly healthy family could have been the result of having somewhere suitable to live for William appeared to own freehold property (So perhaps his father did leave him a cottage!) which suggests he was not one of the poor in the parish. (In 1807 he was one of thirty three freeholders). In 1790 William was able to vote in the County Elections, and he appears on the list of voters for subsequent elections. In 1790 he voted for John, Lord HINCHINBROOK, although in 1807 his votes went to the Rt Hon. Lord Viscount PROBY and William Henry FELLOWES, Esq., with FELLOWES and HINCHINBROOKE being elected. He voted again in 1818 (for The Rt. Hon. Lord Frederick MONTAGUE and William FELLOWES), 1826 (RUSSELL) and 1830 (Lord Viscount STRATHAVON and John Bonfoy ROOPER).

There are other references to the fact that he owned property. In 1796 William was claiming for “Rights of Common under the Inclosure Acts” for land when Somersham Heath was enclosed. There are also references in 1804 to a William WHEATON occupying property owned by The Reverend Thos JOHNSTONE, Mrs CHRISTY and Mrs RAILTON assessed at £2. 8s. 0d, £5. 14s. 0d and £4. 12s. 0d respectively, so besides his own freehold property he was in a position to rent from others. There were also WHEATONs who were receiving rents on properties owned by them in Colne. In 1812 in the Somersham Churchwardens and Overseers Rates Assessments there was the following entry:
William WHEATON House @ £ 2. 0s. 0d
Orchard (late Bright) @ 14s. 0d
Allotment on the Lawns @ £ 3. 13s. 6d
New Inclosure of Mr Johnson @ £21. 6s. 0d
New Inclosure of late Mr Johnson @ £15. 10s. 4d

£43. 3s.10d.
To pay 10s 9½d.
So it would seem that William WHEATON had quite a substantial land holding, both freehold and rented.

William certainly appears to be a respected member of the village. In 1803 there was public unrest about the threat of invasion by the French. The villagers of Somersham held a meeting where the Somersham Company of the Huntingdonshire Voluntary Infantry was set up and William is shown as a volunteer from 1803 to 1805. He obviously took an interest in the affairs of the parish and frequently attended the Vestry meetings. One was held on the 30th July 1820, first at the Church, and then at the Black Bull. It was agreed that repairs should be carried out on the church roof at a total cost of £183. The churchwardens signed the book, as did several parishioners, including William WHEATON. He was again involved in the meeting held at the Rose and Crown on the 25th January 1830. This was concerned with the vaccination of the children of the poor against smallpox. The cost was 2/-d per head. It was pointed out that if the vaccination resulted in the child having the disease the Church would have to forfeit the 2/-d! William was also noted as being present on the 15th April 1830 when Edward CASTLE agreed to attend to the poor as surgeon and apothecary at a salary of £30 a year. On the 21st October 1830, again at the Rose and Crown, he helped elect the village Constables, Fen and Field Reeves, a Pindar and a Crier. The topics discussed at these meetings certainly highlight the wide-ranging aspects of village life that had to be considered which also, on the 22nd November 1830, resulted in William WHEATON being chosen, amongst others, to work the Somersham Fire Engine.

William himself was mentioned on the 9th October 1829 as his ½ year’s rent of £3 was due. Similar notes were made in the Vestry minutes on the 19th March 1830 and the 8th October 1830. On the 10th February 1832 he was assessed at £2. 10s. 0d for Highway Rates and had to pay 7d. William was even attending meetings where members of his family were being discussed and being allowed payments from the parish. Although nine of William and Ann’s ten children grew up, there were sickness problems when they were older. There are many references to parish relief being paid to a Robert WHEATON for the care of his wife, but we believe this is a member of Carol PYENTA’s family, not yet linked to our WHEATONs, although Robert did live just round the corner from our WHEATON family. However, on the 11th December 1829 payments commenced for Thomas WHEATON, the second son of William and Ann which suggest that Thomas was unable to work for some time. Philip. the youngest son in the family was also probably unwell at this time. He was buried in 1832, aged 27 years, two weeks before his reputed daughter, Ann BECK, was baptised in the same church.

In the Quarter Sessions records events were entered which suggest that this family had other problems to face. In 1821 a William WHEATON was charged on two occasions with Larceny. We are not too sure which William WHEATON is involved. The father would have been 59 years old, and the son 32. One of the charges refers to William as a “Yeoman” which could indicate the father. On the other hand this William seems to have been a respected citizen although it could be that he thought an injustice was being done which was why he took the action he did. The son William married in 1821 in Bluntisham but then this could have been the incident which made him move from Somersham. The man in the second charge was a Butcher, which could have applied to both men and could indicate that two different Williams were involved in the two events, except that the wording of the outcome of the case indicates that the accused was the same man in both cases.

The first crime which one or other of them had committed was opening the Pound and rescuing a horse lawfully impounded by Edward GEESON. On the second occasion William WHEATON had rescued two ewes and two lambs belonging to John LEEDS, Yeoman. Edward GEESON had impounded the animals as a “distress for damage done by wrongful grazing”. Both charges were considered to be a “True Bill”.

On the 16th October 1821 William WHEATON was prosecuted at the Huntingdon Michaelmas Quarter Sessions. His crime was a “Pound Breach”. The prosecution was brought be the Trustees of the Somersham Road, the “Bill was found” and a “Bench Warrant” was to be sent. In the margin were the words “pd for”.

On the 15th January 1822 William WHEATON was again prosecuted for a similar offence. He was found guilty, fined £5 and committed until the fine was paid. When the money was paid an order was made for his discharge, and the second indictment abandoned.

This was not the last conflict with the law in this particular branch of the WHEATON family. A Return of Forfeiture was levied at the Hurstingstone Petty Sessions for July and August 1827 against William WHEATON of Somersham, which must have been the father. His crime was to have defective weights and false and unequal balances. As a result William WHEATON was fined £1. 0s. 0d.

William’s mother died in 1803, he saw all but Ann of his children marry. (Ann was to marry in 1841), but his wife out lived him. At his death in 1836 William’s age was given as 77 years, which would have made him born in the year 1759. So, was he perhaps the William baptised in Grantham in January 1758, son of William and Elizabeth? And then baptised again in Woodhurst in 1762 after the marriage of his parents? He was buried at the church of St John the Baptist in Somersham on the 9th June 1836. We have not found a Will, so what happened to his freehold house and land? His widow, Ann, did not inherit his property as in 1841 she lived with her daughter-in-law, Mary, (widow of Thomas who was buried four months after his father) and in 1843 she died at 34 New Square, St Andrew the Less, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. As always, more unanswered questions!

WILLIAM WHEATON 1762 – 1836

Recently (2002) we became aware that there was an “Administration at length” for this William WHEATON, and on the 27th November 2001 we obtained a copy, a transcript of which is included here.

It would seem that before his death William had sold some land, which, it was alleged, was not his to sell. The purchaser wanted to take the Executors and Administrators of William’s estate to the High Court of Chancery, but the Executors had not had the Will proved. The purpose of the following document seems to be to appoint another Administrator, which was necessary before the court case could proceed further.

So, we now have to find out about the High Court of Chancery to ascertain the outcome of the case against William WHEATON.

December 1837
William by Divine Providence Archbishop of Canterbury Primate of all England and Metropolitan To our well beloved in Christ George Peters of Chancery Lane in the County of Middlesex Gentleman Greeting: Whereas it hath been alleged before the Worshipful Jesse Addams Doctor of Law Surrogate of the Right Honourable Sir Hubert Jenner Knight Doctor of Laws Master Keeper or Commissary of our Prerogative Court of Canterbury lawfully constituted on the part and behalf of Samuel Hillyard of Somersham in the County of Huntingdon Yeoman That in the Month of May in the Year of our Lord One thousand eight hundred and twenty three the said Samuel Hillyard filed his Bill of Complaint in Her Majesty’s High Court of Chancery of Great Britain against Thomas Escolme Fisher and William Wheaton (now deceased) and against William Wright George Pearson and Rebecca Pearson thereby stating (amongst other things) that on the twenty sixth day of June One thousand eight hundred and twenty two William Pearson since deceased and the said William Wheaton pretending to have a good Title to the Lands and Premises hereinafter mentioned, to wit, the said William Wheaton as entitled to the Equity of Redemption of the said Land subject to a Mortgage thereof to the said William Pearson for a Term of One thousand years caused the same to be put up to sale by public auction according to certain particulars of Sale, to wit. “The following valuable Freehold Estate Lot 1. All those 3a of arable Land a short distance from Somersham on the Road leading to St Ives Tythe free occupied by William Wheaton The purchaser of this Lot to pay down immediately after the Sale into the hands of the Proprietors Attorney or Agent a deposit of £10 per cent in part of the purchase Money and sign an agreement for the payment of the remainder on the 11th day of October next paying one Guinea as his share of the Expence of such agreement That a good Title to the Lot purchased shall be made by the Vendor at his own Expence and the Lot be conveyed and assured and possession of the same be given to the purchaser on the said 11th day of October on payment of the remainder of the purchase Money such Conveyance and assurance being prepared by the Vendors Attorney such purchaser paying 4 Guineas and the Stamp Duties thereon – That as this and another Lot are held under the same Title the purchaser of this Lot shall have the Custody of the Title Deeds upon his entering into the usual Covenant for the production thereof to the purchaser of Lot 3.” and further stating that the said Samuel Hillyard was declared the highest bidder for the said Premises and agreed to become the purchaser thereof for the sum of One hundred and seven pounds and thereupon the aforesaid agreement was signed by him and the said Thomas Escolme Fisher the attorney of the said William Pearson and William Wheaton and he then paid the sum of Ten Pounds and ten shillings in part of the purchase Money and one Guinea as his share of the Expence of the said Agreement and one Guinea to the Auctioneer and Three Pounds two shillings and five pence as the Amount of the Auction Duty on his said purchase That on the seventeenth day of July following the said Samuel Hillyard gave to the said William Pearson with the approbation of the said William Wheaton a promissory Note for payment of ninety six Pounds ten shillings the Balance of the said purchase Money and was then let into possession of the said Land and afterwards on the fourteenth of October following offered to pay the said residue of the said purchase Money on having the Title Deeds to the said Premises delivered up and a proper Conveyance thereof executed to him but was told by the said Thomas Escolme Fisher that the property held under the same Title remaining unsold was so situated that he could not have the said Deeds upon which he declined to pay the remainder of the said purchase Money and demanded an abstract of the Title of the said Premises which was afterwards delivered to his Solicitors and he was advised that the Title thereby shown was not good and further stating that the said Samuel Hillyard had always been ready and willing to perform the said agreement and had made frequent applications to the Vendors to make out a good Title to the said Premises and make and execute to him a proper conveyance thereof but without effect and therefore Praying Relief as in the said Bill is mentioned(?) And whereas it was further alleged that the said William Wheaton was late of Somersham in the County of Huntingdon and died on the fourth day of June One thousand eight hundred and thirty six having made his Will last Will and Testament in writing and thereof appointed the said Thomas Escolme Fisher one of the Parties to the aforementioned suit and William Mason Executors who have refused or neglected to take upon them or either of them the Probate and Execution thereof (the said Deceased having whilst living and at the time of his death Goods Chattels or Credits in divers Dioceses or Jurisdictions within the province of Canterbury sufficient to found the Jurisdiction of our said Prerogative Court of Canterbury) That divers Proceedings have been had in the said suit in the said High Court of Chancery but that no further proceedings can be had therein with effect on behalf of the said Samuel Hillyard until there is a legal Representative of the said William Wheaton deceased before the said Court. That the said William Mason hath been duly cited with the usual Intimation to accept or refuse the Probate and Execution of the said Will and that on the first Session of Michaelmas Term to wit, Saturday the fourth day of November last our(?) Master Keeper or Commissary aforesaid in pain of the said William Mason so cited and intimated and thrice called and not appearing at the Petition of the Proctor of the said Samuel Hillyard and on Motion of the Advocate Decreed Letters of Administration of the Good Chattels and Credits of the said William Wheaton deceased limited to the purpose only to attend supply substantiate and confirm the Proceedings already had or that shall or may hereafter be had in the aforesaid Cause or Suit in the said High Court of Chancery or in any other Cause or Suit which may be commenced in the said Court or in any other Court between the aforementioned Parties or any other Parties touching and concerning the Matters at issue in the said Cause or Suit and until a final Decree shall be had and made therein and the said Decree carried into execution and the execution thereof fully completed but not further or otherwise to be granted and committed to the said George Peters as a Person for that purpose named by and on the part and behalf of the said Samuel Hillyard on giving the usual(?)

We have long believed that William was comparatively wealthy, and we felt sure that he would have left property because he was able to vote. If the Administrator of his estate was involved in Court of Chancery proceedings, perhaps that was the cause of the disappearance of his family’s inheritance.

wife was living with him.

If Samual GUNTON was the son of Jonathan GUNTON surely his surname would be
GUNTON?
So, perhaps he was the son of Mary GUNTON née WHEATON
However, she married as Mary WHEATON, not as Mary POWELL
She married Jonathan GUNTON in 1828 and Samuel POWELL was born in 1830, after
her marriage, so why, if a son, was he called POWELL?
No marriage or death has been found for a Samuel POWELL.

DESCENDANTS
No children have been found on any of the census returns, and there were no GUNTON children born before 1851 in the Cambridge District, so at present it would appear that Jonathan and Mary had no descendants.

MARRIAGE
It was originally thought that this Mary WHEATON married a Thomas CHARITY. Thomas CHARITY’s wife Mary gives her birth place as Ramsey on census returns.

REASONS WHY WE THINK THIS MARY WHEATON MARRIED JONATHAN GUNTON on the
15 May 1828 at St Mary the Great, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

This Mary WHEATON was born in Somersham, Huntingdonshire and this is the village shown on the 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1881 census returns as the place of Mary’s birth, not Ramsey as is shown for the wife of Thomas CHARITY.

This Mary WHEATON’s mother was Ann WHEATON née GUNTON, so there is a link to the name GUNTON.

Her father, William WHEATON, died in 1780. Of his nine surviving children only two, Thomas and Elizabeth, appear to have remained in Somersham, with four of the children (Joseph, Ann, Mary and Phoebe) and their mother going to live in Cambridge and another brother, Philip living there at least in 1830 when his first child was born. (Of the others, William went to Bluntisham and then Chatteris and Robert went to Thorne in Lincolnshire)

Joseph WHEATON’s second marriage took place in St Mary the Great, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire in 1819, his children was all born there between 1819 and 1832

Ann WHEATON married in December 1841 in St Andrew the Less, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. At the time of the census she was living with her sister in the parish of St Mary the Great, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.

Phoebe WHEATON married on 8th November 1828 and was by 1831 at least (birth of daughter) living Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. Phoebe and her family are included on the 1841 census in the parish of St Mary the Great, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.

The witnesses at the Jonathan GUNTON/Mary WHEATON marriage in 1828 at St Mary the Great, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire were Ann WHEATON and Joseph WHEATON, two of the siblings mentioned above.

In 1843 their mother, Ann WHEATON née GUNTON, died on the 1st March at 34 New Square, St Andrew the Less, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire Age 74 and was buried in the 5th March 1843 at St John the Baptist, Somersham, Huntingdonshire

Therefore I believe that this Mary WHEATON married Jonathan GUNTON and not Thomas CHARITY.

Quarter Sessions Books

Philip WHEATON the elder &
Philip WHEATON the younger

Committed September 1821 on suspicion of sheep stealing

CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS
23rd March 1822

Phillip WHEATON the younger, charged with stealing one wether sheep, value £l. 14s. the property of Mr Thomas PEACOCK, St Ives in this county, on 30th of July last.- Mr. Thos. PEACOCK, stated he had lost a sheep out of his drove; James EUSTON, his driver stated the same, and on being cross-examined said he had received £l. 14s. of his wife, which WHEATON, sen. had paid to his wife for a sheep, which he said his son had bought of witness. but which witness said he had not, and that his master returned the £l. 14s. this morning. – G SKEELS saw prisoner driving some sheep from St Ives towards Chatteris, and he took a single sheep off the road, which he stated he had left there knocked up: LEACH apprehended prisoner at Meldrith, in Cambridgeshire, where he was a journey-man butcher. – Not Guilty.

Philip WHEATON the elder, aged 42, charged with having on the 30th July last, received of P. WHEATON, the younger, one wether sheep, (knowing the same to have been feloniously stolen) value £l. 14s; the property of Mr. Thomas PEACOCK.
– Prosecution withdrawn.

The information about the family of Philip WHEATON and Ann JAMES is confusing.

Philip was baptised in Somersham on the 18th July 1777. He was buried on the 22nd August 1853 in Chatteris which should have made him 76 years old. However, in the Chatteris Parish Register he is shown as aged 82 years. His wife had died previously and his older children were either married, or had themselves already died, so perhaps no one in his second family actually knew his age.

In 1822 Philip WHEATON senior and Philip WHEATON junior were accused of sheep stealing. In 1841 Philip Piggott WHEATON, a Butcher was living in Back Lane in Chatteris with an Ann GREEN who he married in 1847, giving his father’s name as Philip. Although we cannot find a baptism for Philip Piggott WHEATON, given his middle name, his occupation, his father’s name, where he lived, and the fact that Philip senior had a son of the same name, we are certain that Philip Piggott WHEATON is that son. The only clue as to when he was born is that at the time of his death in 1850 his age was given as 48, which suggests he was born in 1802.

Philip WHEATON senior married Elizabeth PIGGOTT in Doddington in 1805, which could, therefore, have been three years after the birth of the first child in the family, the Philip mentioned above. A daughter, Elizabeth was baptised in 1805, a daughter Ann buried as an infant in 1809, and then a daughter Mary, who had been born in 1807, was baptised in 1816. That Philip junior was probably born before his parent’s marriage, that Mary and Ann were not baptised and that Philip junior lived with his wife before marriage all suggest that the lives of this family were not too well regulated and helps confirm that the perceived problems discussed below actually exist!

Philip’s wife Elizabeth died in 1814, leaving Philip with a son, aged 12 and two daughters, aged 9 and 7. It would appear that he and his son were in trouble in 1821 when they were in court (See above). Perhaps Philip had looked for someone to help him take care of the children; maybe it was Ann JAMES who he married in December 1839. On the marriage certificate Ann is shown as a spinster, daughter of William JAMES and she would have been about seventeen when Philip’s first wife died. In the December of the year previous to their marriage Ann had given birth to twin sons (who both died), whose births and deaths were registered in the name of WHEATON, although the couple were not married at the time. There were no baptisms or burials for these children in the Chatteris Parish Registers.

In 1841 Philip WHEATON was living at Slade End, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire. In the same property, all with the surname WHEATON, were Catherine, Frederick, Jane, Eliza and Thomas, who were all born after the death of his first wife, Elizabeth PIGGOTT, and before his marriage to Ann JAMES. No baptisms for these children in the name of WHEATON or JAMES can be found in the Chatteris Registers.

However, in the Chatteris Burial register there are several entries of interest. In 1833 Robert JAMES, illegitimate son of Ann JAMES, and in 1837 three year old Phoebe JAMES, illegitimate daughter of Ann JAMES, were buried. Were these the children of the Ann JAMES who married Philip WHEATON? To support this there is the case of the death in Chatteris of a nineteen year old Ann WHEATON, Butcher, which was registered on the 22nd September 1840, the informant being her mother, Ann WHEATON. However, in the Parish Register, on the 27th September 1840, there was a burial for an Ann JAMES, age 19, illegitimate daughter of Ann JAMES, who must surely be the same person.

So, it would seem that an Ann JAMES has several illegitimate children. Was it “our” Ann JAMES? And did these include those living with Philip in 1841, and again in 1851, with the addition of William? It seems more than likely that she is the mother of them all, but is Philip the father? Were there any clues from the children themselves?

In 1847 (which is after the 1842 death of Ann) the marriage of Phillip Piggott WHEATON was witnessed by Philip, Catherine and Jane WHEATON, and William JAMES. Was this Ann’s father, or could it have been her son William calling himself at this time William JAMES? In 1850 a William JAMES is a witness at the marriage of Jane James WHEATON. (Where did the James come from?!), but in 1851 it is a William WHEATON who is living with Philip. When Jane James WHEATON married in 1850 the other witness was Frederick James WHEATON, but when her sister married in 1855 (after the death of Philip) one of the witnesses was a Frederick JAMES. Was this the same person as the Frederick WHEATON living with Philip in 1841 and 1851? At the time of the marriages both girls gave Philip WHEATON as their father, as did their brother Thomas James WHEATON when he married Drusilla LATSON in 1858, after the death of Philip. So, whilst the children were young (in 1841) were they called WHEATON, but as they grew older they first started calling themselves James WHEATON, and then eventually JAMES?

Catherine continued to call herself “Catherine WHEATON” all her life until she died in 1881. But what of the other children? We have been unable to find a marriage for Frederick James WHEATON, nor deaths for William, Frederick James, Thomas James or Drusilla WHEATON. Perhaps the entries are in the name of JAMES. On the other hand, their sister, Jane James WHEATON went to America, so perhaps her brothers went too.

The only other clue is to be found when Jane James WHEATON and George GREEN baptised their first child in Chatteris, before Philip died, as “Catherine Elizabeth ROWE alias GREEN (WHEATON erased) daughter of Jane JAMES and Henry ROWE alias George GREEN”. It would seem that Jane at least had decided that Philip was not her father! However, we have now (2/12/2003) been sent details from America of the death of Catherine Elizabeth. And she gives her parents names as Henry ROWE and Jane WHEATON! Confused? So are we!

Update to the above.
A marriage has been now found for Frederick James WHEATON, as Frederick JAMES
Deaths have been found for Thomas James and Drusilla in America

Bastardy Claim
It would seem that Thomas was alleged to be the father of a Thomas Wheaton WILSON, born 6th June 1811, baptised on the 25th August 1811 in Chatteris, son of Mary WILSON. The matter went before the Churchwardens and Overseers of the Poor of the parish of Chatteris on the 8th April and the 15th July 1812. It would seem likely that no conclusion was reached about the accusation by Mary WILSON against Thomas for the result of the enquiry was “No order made herein”.

Message from Fiona Mackenzie WARD, 18/3/2008
Hello there!
I thought you might like to know that Thomas and Martha WHEATON were witnesses at the marriage of Richard MATSON to Ann GADSBY (my relative). Also, they (Richard and Ann) clearly thought so much of Thomas that they named one of their sons Thomas Wheaton MATSON. That carried on throughout their lifetimes as Richard was an executor of their wills.

THOMAS WHEATON 1791 – 1836
Thomas was born the second son of William and Ann GUNTON. He was baptised in the church of St John the Baptist in Somersham on the 20th March 1791. He already had an elder brother, William, born two years previously and by 1806 there were another three brothers and five sisters, although one sister had died within a year of her birth. It is probable that Thomas had a reasonably comfortable life during his childhood as it seems that his father could have inherited property and certainly had a freehold dwelling and land in Somersham as well as other properties which he rented.

At twenty years old, Thomas was the first of his brothers and sisters to marry, and it appears that he did this twice within a fortnight! He married Mary SEEKINGS in Somersham on the 29th September 1811. And he then married Mary again in the parish church of Chatteris, Cambridgeshire on the 10th October of the same year with witnesses William and Elizabeth WHEATON, and Thomas CAMPS. There is no indication as to the reason for the second ceremony. Was the calling of banns incomplete when the first marriage took place? Did Mary’s family insist there should be a marriage ceremony in their church in Chatteris as well as that of the WHEATONs in Somersham? Another of those unsolved mysteries.

As with all the sons in the family, Thomas was a Butcher. For so many of the family to follow the same occupation must have caused some problems. Thomas’s father was a Butcher in Somersham, three of Thomas’s uncles had already set up businesses in Bluntisham, Colne and Chatteris and all four of Thomas’s brothers were also Butchers; William went to Bluntisham, Joseph to Cambridge and Philip probably went to Lincolnshire where his son was baptised in 1831, although Philip was buried in Somersham the following year. This meant that besides father William earning his living as a Butcher in Somersham, Thomas and his brother Robert also had to find sufficient work to support their families. It was actually Robert’s son and grandson who continued the business in Somersham until the end of the nineteenth century.

Thomas and Mary had their first child, Robert, on the 26th November 1813. Eighteen months later they had a second son, John, on the 19th February 1815. Neither child was baptised whilst still a baby, this event for both children taking place in the parish church on the 22nd June 1817. A daughter, Hannah, was the next child, born on the 15th April 1818, baptised on the 10th May 1818, but buried on the 23rd August 1820 aged two and a half years. In Huntingdonshire and the surrounding counties at this time there was considerable support for non-conformist churches. Perhaps this, or maybe the death of their daughter, caused several WHEATON families not to have their children baptised in the local parish church. The existence of the next two children in the family was only ascertained from details in census returns. A son, William, was born between 1819 and 1822, and a daughter Ann about 1825.

Within a few years of the birth of this daughter it would appear that Thomas was having difficulty in supporting his family. In the Overseers Accounts, on the 11th December 1829 Thomas WHEATON received 12/-d from the Poor Rate collected by the Overseers. As the other WHEATON mentioned, a Robert, (one of Carol PYENTA’s family) was only receiving 2/-d this was a large amount for Thomas and his family. He received a further 5/- on Christmas Eve and 10/6d on New Year’s Day. Further amounts were paid totalling £3. 4s. 6d. by the end of March 1830. Payments were not made again to Thomas until the November of 1830 when he received £1.0s.0d on the 5th November, and a further £1.1s. 0d on the 18th of the same month. At some time during that year Thomas and Mary had their last child, Hannah, another daughter, although she was not baptised until 1838, after the death of her father, when she was eight years old.

It could have been that the reason why Thomas was not able to support his family was because he was not well for he was only 40 years old when he was buried on the 6th November 1836 at St John the Baptist in Somersham, which was three months after the death of his father. Of the children of William and Elizabeth who survived to adulthood, Thomas was the second son to die, as his brother, Philip, died at the age of 27 in 1832 (as mentioned above).

Thomas left his wife Mary with five children ranging in age from Robert at 23 to Hannah aged 6. In the February after Thomas’s death Mary was renting a house and barn owned by William WOODS. The rateable value was £3.5s.0d and the rates 4/-½d. paid for by the Overseers of the Poor. By 1841 Mary was earning a living as a Washerwoman and her three sons, Robert, John and William, all still living at home, had broken with family tradition and were Agricultural Labourers. The family lived in High Street North in Somersham, together with Ann WHEATON, Mary’s widowed mother-in-law. She was shown as “Independent” on the Census, so it would appear that her husband, William, did leave her financially secure. Mary certainly was not in this position as in the December of that year, still living in a house owned by William WOODS, with rateable value £3.5s.0d., the rates of 1/2d were again paid by the Overseers of the Poor.

Over the next few years Mary’s financial position should have improved. It would appear that her mother-in-law (Ann WHEATON née GUNTON) moved to Cambridge, probably to be near her two daughters, Mary and Phoebe. Ann died in 1843 so there could have been property left to her by her husband which could have benefited Mary. Mary’s eldest son, Robert, was lodging in Clenchwarton, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire by 1851. Also, two of Mary’s children married, her daughter Ann to William BATEMAN in 1842, and her son William to Ann ASPINALL in 1844. However, there was probably nothing to inherit, and with the loss of support from her two sons and her daughter, Mary continued to have money problems because on the 17th August 1843 her nephew, Robert WHEATON of Cranbrook, paid a total of 11½d towards the church rate of which 5d. was for himself and 6½d was for his Aunt. Maybe things had improved by the 30th April 1846 when Mary WHEATON, with a house in Front Street, with rateable value £3.5s.0d, paid the rates of 6½d. There was another Mary WHEATON entry for Freeman Yard, rateable value £2.10s.0d, rates 5d. At this time, except for Mary BENTON, the wife of Robert, there does not appear to be another Mary WHEATON in Somersham, so perhaps, if this Mary was Mary SEEKINGS, who gave her occupation in 1841 as a Washerwoman, she needed a yard in which to carry out her work.

In April 1847 Mary WHEATON was again shown in the Overseers Rates Book as occupying a House in Front Street owned by W. WOODS. Although at this time a rateable value of £3.5s0d was shown with rates of 3/3d. in August 1847 there appears no owner and Mary is shown as not having to pay rates as she was “only a lodger”. In June 1844 her son William had married, and in February 1848 Mary was living with this son and his wife. They are shown as occupying a house and yard owned by ASPINALL. The Rateable Value was £2.0s.0d and the Rates 2/-d.

As William and Anne’s family grew, perhaps there was no room for Mary to continue living with her son and his wife. In 1851, at the age of 62, she was living at West End in St Ives, and was working as a Nurse in the home of Thomas EARL, a Farmer, Brewer and Innkeeper. It must have been a busy household with Thomas’s mother, wife, four children and two servants. We next find Mary in 1871 in a much quieter environment, back in Somersham in Squire Lane as a Companion, to Elizabeth WARBOYS who was in receipt of an Annuity. Mary WHEATON née SEEKINGS died on the 8th October 1872 in Somersham of “Old Age”. She was 85 years old and the informant of her death was Jane RUFF.

Of the remaining children of Thomas and Mary, other than William and Ann whose marriage was mentioned above, all left Somersham. Hannah went to London as a Housemaid at Bloomsbury Place, Bloomsbury, Middlesex in the home of Walter GRIFFITHS a General Practitioner. She married George SMITH at Holy Trinity in Islington on the 9th May 1852 with James SMITH and Phebe ADAMS as witnesses. John had also left Somersham by 1851 as he was lodging at 4 Mottram Road, Manchester with a Joseph ROWLAND and his family before moving to 24 Chorlton Road, Manchester by 1854. He married Mary HIBBERT on the 21st May 1854 in Manchester Cathedral with witnesses William HIGGINBOTHAM and Ann HIBBERT. Mary died of Small Pox in The Royal Infirmary in Manchester in 1871 and by 1881 John was lodging at 129 East Street, Gorton, Lancashire with Jeremiah BARLOW and his family. Through the years he had a variety of occupations besides Agricultural Labourer. He was an Excavator, Hawker and General Labourer. He died of Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema aged 78 in 1888 at the “Little Sister of the Poor”, 201 Plymouth Grove, Chorlton Upon Medlock, Lancashire, where the superintendent was A CLAVE, who was the informant of the death. The eldest son in the family, Robert, did stay in Somersham for a while. He had a son, Philip, and then married the mother, Margaret Scott PARKER in Somersham on the 30th January 1860. He and Margaret had another child, John, in 1857 in Somersham, but then he moved to London, had other children, and by 1863 was living at 5 Guildford Place, Clerkenwell, Middlesex. By 1867 the family were at 16 William Street, Newington and Robert was living there when he died of Small Pox at the Small Pox Hospital in Upper Holloway on the 28th February in that year. Despite this particular family moving to London, it would appear that Robert’s son Philip, for several years, kept in touch with the descendants of William and Ann ASPINALL.

Along with many others

In 1827 a Robert WHEATON, a butcher from Somersham, had two conflicts with the law involving three events. On each occasion he had turned sheep to graze on the Somersham Turnpike Road, in the first instance a total of fifty animals were involved. He was fined 5/-d for the first two offences and £2 for the third, with a total of £2. 12s. 6d for costs. (Elsewhere we have found that such roads were let to different individuals in the parish for grazing and in return the hirer was responsible for the upkeep of the road. Probably therefore, the grazing rights on the Somersham Turnpike road belonged to someone other than Robert).

1850 – Robert WHEATON accused Samuel THORP of stealing two waistcoats valued at 2/-s and a handkerchief valued at 3d. The crime was at Hemingford Grey on the 5th June 1850. Samuel THORP was also accused of receiving. He was found not guilty

1852 – Robert WHEATON accused Samuel THORPE of stealing from his clothing

Information from Roland ASPINALL 9.11.1993
In May 1857 Robert WHEATON was in the St Ives Union (Workhouse). He was discharged at his own request on the 24th May 1857, but was re-admitted on the 5th June 1857. He was probably in the Workhouse again from 1864 to 1871. The records show that he was born on the 10th May 1790 in Somersham and imply that he was a widower having worked in earlier years as a Farm Labourer. In 1871 he was “not able bodied”. In 1867 he is recorded as being a religious dissenter, but another record shows him to be Church of England.

Information from Diana SUTOR 6/8/2009
We have a family story that was passed down through our family about Thomas CANNON and Ann COUSINS. The story goes that as a young boy Thomas Cannon was a stable boy for Thomas COUSINS and Jane WHEATON’s family, supposedly in a higher standing family in the community. He fell in love with Ann and the couple eloped and Ann Cousins CANNON was shunned by her family when this occurred. Supposedly at one point Ann was standing on the street and her father drove past her in her in his carriage and when he saw her he turned his back to her. This was one of the contributing factors of Thomas and Ann (COUSINS) CANNON going to America after the death of Thomas CANNON’s parents. I do not know how much of this story is true, as if he was the COUSIN’s stable boy, he must have apprenticed with a carpenter at one point as that is his trade in the census records.

He is described as a Butcher and as a Labourer, also as not being able bodied. The early records show him to be Church of England but in 1866 he is shown as a Dissenter.

Does this apply to this John? The actual image of the passenger list is practically impossible to read. My brother John TERRY has worked at enhancing the page and believes that nos 76 and 77 are definitely a John and Ann and that their surname ends in “…ATON”.
However, there is no Ann WHEATON on the Mississippi in the index
But…when doing a search on WHEATON and Mississippi it shows that John WHEATON and June WHEATON Age 65 were passengers. We believe, therefore, that this could be the right John, and that his wife has been wrongly indexed. More research required. It has now been confirmed by Barbara WHEATON 2/5/2013 that this is the right couple

REASONS FOR INCLUSION OF JOHN WHEATON IN THIS FAMILY
There were three families of WHEATONs in the counties of Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire. It is not a common name and it seemed more than likely that all three were connected – if only we could find the connections! We have been searching for links since 1983.

Dennis WHEATON’s family begins the earliest with a marriage in 1726 and Robert WHEATON was a descendant. Robert baptised two daughters in the parish church but none of his other children; they were only identified as belonging to him because he mentioned them in his will. He did not mention a John.

However,
A John WHEATON was a witness to the marriage of Robert’s eldest daughter
John WHEATON, the son of the John WHEATON for whom these notes are being written, went to County Huron, Ohio in 1840 followed by his father in 1843.
Robert WHEATON had a son Daniel who in 1851 (after the death of his father) went to America, settling in Norwalk, County Huron, Ohio.
John WHEATON, the son of the John WHEATON for whom these notes are being written, married a Sarah CLARKE. After her first husband’s death Sarah married a Joseph RIDER/RYDER and became the Housekeeper to Daniel WHEATON in Norwalk, County Huron, Ohio.
In Daniel’s original Will a legacy was left to Sarah Clarke Wheaton RIDER. However she died before Daniel so a codicil changed the Will to include a bequest to her daughter.
One of Daniel’s sons was called Leonard, and a Leonard WHEATON was a witness at the marriage of one of Sarah Clarke Wheaton RIDER’s children
And on the 2nd February 2010, through Carol HOLLY who had written to Barbara WHEATON (married to a descendant of this John), we received details of Sarah Clark Wheaton RIDER’s obituary where it describes her as the cousin of Daniel WHEATON.

Some clarifications….
After Robert WHEATON’s first two children were christened in a Church of England we believe that he became an important supporter of the Baptist Church in Bluntisham so the rest of his children were not christened in the Parish Church.
This John died between 1843 and 1850 so it could be that he had died before Robert wrote his Will which explains why he was not included.
Daniel was actually the Uncle of the John who married Sarah CLARKE and so she would have been his niece by marriage. However, Daniel was born in 1814 and John in 1815 so they probably considered themselves cousins and described themselves as such to others which was why “cousin” was the relationship used in Sarah’s obituary.

In the light of the foregoing we have now included John WHEATON as a son of Robert WHEATON and Catherine WHITE

In 2012 the DNA results for Dennis Ian WHEATON indicated that he was not a WHEATON but a WETTON from Staffordshire.
In 2013 the DNA results for one of John WHEATON’s descendants indicated that he was not a WHEATON, but a WETTON from Staffordshire!
So, the belief that this John belonged on Den’s family tree has been proved.

Although this refers to a June WHEATON when looking at the actual passenger list, although practically impossible to read, it does look like Ann. There were only two WHEATON passengers on the “MISSISSIPPI”, one was John, so we believe there has been an error in the transcription. More research required.

The only John LEE deaths in Huntingdonshire between 1851 and 1861 were:
John LEE died March quarter 1861 Caxton District and
John LEE died September quarter 1861 Thrapston District.

Neither seems to be the right District, whilst the second one appears to be too late.
Two of John’s sons went to America in November 1851; what if John followed them and so his wife then considered herself to be a widow?
On the other hand there is a John LEE death in the St Ives District, Huntingdonshire in the December quarter of 1878; he was aged 74 so born about 1804.

DANIEL WHEATON DEAD
An Old Residence, Well-Known in Huron County, Gone

Death has taken another of Huron County’s old citizens. Daniel E WHEATON of the Old State Road, passed to his reward on Monday October 10th. His age was about 83 years. Mr WHEATON is survived by two sons, D E WHEATON of Cleveland, and C H WHEATON of Norwalk, and three daughters; Mrs W H PRICE, Mrs J F PERRIN and Mrs Emma WATKINS. The funeral was held Wednesday, at 2 c’clock, from his late home.

Daniel E WHEATON was born in Huntingdonshire, England in 1813. He came to America in 1851 and almost directly to Norwalk, where he resided and carried on the meat business for three years. At the end of that time he bought the farm on the old State Road where he has lived ever since and where he has in days gone by dispensed the happy and most cordial entertainment peculiar to the English people.
He was married to Ann MEHEW, who died 20 years ago. Ten children were born to them, five of whom are living.
Mr WHEATON in politics was a staunch democrat, although he has taken no active interest in political for some years.
His home was the greatest spot on earth to him and there he was wont to gather his children and grandchildren about him for happy family reunions.
During his life Mr WHEATON accumulated a good amount of this world’s goods and as a consequence left a large estate. In his death Huron County has last another of its older citizens and good men.
Extract from “The Firelands Pioneer – Norwalk, its men, women and girls”

Daniel WHEATON, who came to Norwalk in 1851, died there about two years ago, a respected and well-to-do citizen. There were eight boys and girls in his family, some of whom were schoolmates of mine, and with all of whom I was at one time more or less intimately acquainted. Dennis, a prosperous business man, lived in Cleveland; Charles, whose wife was Annie HOYT, a daughter of Agur B., lives on the WHEATON place on the Old State road; Robt., who married Betsey GRAVES, was accidentally killed, while gunning, some twenty years or more ago; Leonard, who had a natural heart for the stage, and who married Rose, daughter of Jacob C. BUSH – a girl as pretty as was her name – has been dead several years; Emma, widow of John WATKINS, who succeeded Capt. DEWALDT in the hotel business, resides in Norwalk: Susan, who became the wife of Eli HOYT, son of Agur B., has been dead a number of years; Kate, whose husband is Mr W H PRICE, the capitalist, makes her home in Norwalk.

From Commemorative Biographical Records

Among the leading business men of Norwalk none holds higher rank than this well-known gentleman, who is a son of Robert and Catherine (White) WHEATON.
Robert WHEATON, who was one of four brothers-Philip, William, John and Robert- was born in 1784, in Huntingdonshire, England, near Cambridge, and was a successful butcher and farmer, keeping four teams constantly at work. He died in 1848, the mother passing away at the age of eighty years.
Daniel WHEATON was born the second Monday of January, 1814, in Huntingdon, England, the second youngest of his father’s family, and is the only one now living. He grew to manhood in his native land, there following the butcher business as well as agricultural pursuits. He was united in marriage, March 25, 1835, with Miss Ann MEHEW, who was born in 1816, also in Huntingdon, England. In November 1851, they came to America, first locating in Monroeville, Ohio, and three months later moving to Norwalk, where they resided for three years. He followed his trade for some time after settling here, then purchased a farm, but continued the butcher business until about the year 1863, when his sons took entire charge. Since then the father has managed the farm; formerly he owned ninety-two acres, but now has eighty-eight acres.

He erected the WHEATON block in the business portion of the city, and owns the Webber block, the Chronicle block (part of which he built) and seven houses in the place, besides three brick buildings in the village of Huron. He has taken two thousand and one dollars worth of stock in the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad, and was also an original stockholder in the Norwalk Metal Spinning and Stamping Company; he was the first man to put plate glass in Norwalk. Mr WHEATON is a Democrat in politics, and in religion he is a member of the Baptist Church, with which his wife was also identified. Mrs WHEATON died March 16, 1878, and since then the home has been cared for by relatives. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. WHEATON have been as follows: David, born in April, 1836, in Erith, England, died in 1844; Emma A (Mrs WATKINS), born in May 1837; Dennis E, born June 17, 1838 (a butcher in Cleveland); Charles H, born February 5, 1840 (also a butcher in Cleveland); Susan A (wife of Eli HOYT), born July 17, 1841, died September 6, 1889; Hannah L, wife of John PERRIN, born January 2, 1844; Robert A., born March 16 1847, died November 25, 1868; Catherine, wife of W H PRICE, born November 30, 1849; Ada E, born March 5, 1853 (died October 14 1853)

The problem is that Harriet is shown as being born in 1848. However as her husband is
shown as being born in 1849 it is quite likely that she made herself younger than she really
was. As there is a little doubt about if this is the correct marriage etc I have not added a chart,
but they had the following children: Harry (9) Scholar, Charles (7) Scholar and James (1), all

There was a Grace Mercy ROWE birth registered in the June quarter 1855 in the West Ham District, Essex. No obvious marriage or death. The birth was not in the place we would have thought it ought to be, but the date is right and there were no other Grace ROWE births in the right quarter

We were given the name George WHEELER as the husband of Grace ROWE
However, when searching the USA census returns the only Grace WHEELER born about 1855 in England is the wife of Joseph WHEELER.

Information from Tanya HARRINGTON 7/1/2007
“Did I mention that it was suggested Elizabeth SOUTHWELL’s son Robert, born 1835, might have been Robert WHEATON’s son? Robert isn’t a SOUTHWELL family name, and I suppose it’s possible that the two had an affair. There wasn’t much of a gap between the death of Rebecca and his marriage to Elizabeth.

In case he’s a WHEATON (!), this son Robert was in Ely on the 1841 Census living with John (60) and Mary LANGMAN, his grandmother Phillis’ relatives. In 1851 he was 16 and living with Elizabeth’s brother Henry SOUTHWELL and family in Chatteris. I haven’t found where Elizabeth was as yet.
(Note from JKW 12/7/2013. I have details for Robert and his descendants. These details do not get included in a Robert WHEATON Descendant Report. Contact me if you would like the information)

Robert married Jemima ATKIN 7th Oct 1865 at Manea. He gave his father’s name as Robert SOUTHWELL, to appear respectable, no doubt, but there wasn’t a Robert SOUTHWELL, so was the Robert half of it correct? They had 5 children: Henry, James, Robert, Rachel and Eliza.”

Another possible connection to the ONYETT family.
Croydon ONYETT’s y g/g/g/ grandfather, Robert EMMERTON/HEMMINGTON/EMMINGTON of Whittlesey, married a Susan SOUTHWELL on 21.08.1825 at Whittlesey St. Mary. Susan was born in 1804 Whittlesey. As this Elizabeth SOUTHWELL was born about 1801 at Benwick, and as Benwick is nearly within spitting distance of Whittlesey, could there possibly be a link here?

No birth or baptism has been found for Rebecca; there are no suitable marriage or death entries in the Civil Registration Indexes for this Rebecca WHEATON. Who is she? Where does she fit in to the WHEATON family?

From the 1841 census it would appear she was born about 1827. At the time of the 1841 Census Rebecca was living with Robert WHEATON and Catherine WHEATON née WHITE. Was she their granddaughter?

First, are there any known Rebecca WHEATONs who could be the same person as this Rebecca WHEATON (of Unknown Parentage).

1. Rebecca WHEATON, baptised 1795 daughter of the daughter of Robert and Catherine.
This Rebecca WHEATON married a William WHEATON in 1821 and had two children, Charles and Catherine, both baptised in 1825. William WHEATON was not living with a wife in 1841, and in 1851 said that he was a widower. Therefore, we had assumed that William’s wife Rebecca WHEATON had died before 1841.

However, if Rebecca (of Unknown Parentage) is the same person as the Rebecca WHEATON who married William WHEATON, Rebecca and William could have parted before 1841, and Rebecca could have had five children with an unknown father. William was still alive in 1870 when Emily (Rebecca’s daughter) married and entered the name of William WHEATON as her father on her marriage certificate, so perhaps there had been a reconciliation. On the other hand, if the WHEATON family was a close-knit one, perhaps she was brought up by William’s father, also a William.

But, this Rebecca WHEATON would have been 48 years old when Martha was born, and about 56 at the time of the birth of the second Arthur And would she have given the son by the unknown father the same name as her first-born who was still living? Given the foregoing we think that this Rebecca WHEATON is not the same person as the Rebecca of Unknown parentage.

2. Rebecca WHEATON, born about 1827, who was living with Robert and Catherine WHEATON in 1841.
As always, problems do not come singly. The ages of Robert WHEATON and Catherine WHEATON née WHITE entered on the 1841 census do not correspond to the ages of the couple to whom the entry belongs. Robert WHEATON (stated as being born 1781 instead of 1772) was the son of William and Elizabeth WHEATON; his wife Catherine died in 1860 aged 87, so was born about 1773 and not 1786 as the age on the 1841 census indicates. There is, therefore, about a ten year difference for the two adults between their actual ages and the ages shown on the census.

But what of the Rebecca WHEATON who was living with them in 1841? Her age is given as 14 years old. Robert and Catherine’s daughter (No.1 above) would have been 47 year old. A 33 year difference is somewhat different to the 10 year difference in the ages given for Robert and Catherine. Perhaps this Rebecca was a granddaughter. In 1843 when the mystery Rebecca had her first child, this Rebecca, the one living with Robert and Catherine in 1841 would have been 15 years old so could just have been the mother of Martha.

So, if Rebecca was born in 1827, as calculated from the age on the 1841 Census, and she was a granddaughter of Robert and Catherine, which of Robert and Catherine’s children was Rebecca’s parent?
Of the sons, Richard is the only one old enough to have been a possible father for Rebecca. (Daniel would have been 13, Isaac 12) Richard married in 1825 and had children in 1826, 1827, 1830 and 1831 so, although possible, it is unlikely that he would be Rebecca’s father.

Of the daughters,
* Jane married in 1812, Ann married in 1820 and Sophia married 1823 so they would have been COUSINS, HALL and AUBREY respectively in 1827 when Rebecca WHEATON was born.

* Elizabeth married in 1828 when she became LEE and Phoebe died 1829, age 17 years old so both could just possibly be Rebecca’s mother.

* Rebecca married William WHEATON in 1821 (See 1 above) She and William could have been the parents of this Rebecca (of Unknown Parentage), born 1827, and the birth date would fit in with the other two children, both baptised in 1825. If the mother, Rebecca, had died before 1841 as originally deduced from details on the 1841 Census for William, perhaps the daughter, Rebecca, went to live with her grandparents which would correspond with the information we already have. Perhaps Robert and Catherine were concerned that they might not be able to continue to look after Rebecca as they were so much older, which is why they indicated that they were younger than their true ages on the 1841 census. Rebecca, the mother of these three children, named her son Charles, who, if she is part of the William/Rebecca WHEATON family means she gave him the same name as her brother. It would also follow that perhaps, if Emily was in contact with her mother’s father, she might have thought of him, not as her grandfather, but as her father. (On the other hand, she might just have wanted a name on the marriage certificate).

So, it is possible that Rebecca of Unknown Parentage could be the granddaughter of Robert and Catherine WHEATON, and maybe the daughter of William and Rebecca WHEATON.

3. Rebecca WHEATON née WEST or BECK, wife of Robert WHEATON.
This couple, part of Carol PYENTA’s family, were together with two of their children in Somersham in 1841, and on their own there in 1851. A Rebecca WHEATON, wife of Robert WHEATON died in 1853, so given this information it seems unlikely that this Rebecca is the mother of Charles and Emily.

There are no other Rebeccas in our WHEATON family, nor have we found any others in the Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire records.

Given all the foregoing, it seems most likely that William WHEATON and his wife Rebecca (née WHEATON), had a daughter Rebecca, whose baptism we have not found. (Given the problems we are having with Non-conformist registers, this is not surprising). From census information it would seem that William’s wife died young, at least before 1841, which could have left him with at least three children born before 1827. His wife’s parents, Robert and Catherine, would appear to have taken one of the children, Rebecca, born 1827, into their home. They were concerned because they were getting on in years, so when asked for their ages for the 1841 census they made out they were ten years younger than they actually were. Their granddaughter, Rebecca, was at this time 14 years old, and working as a female servant. Two years later Rebecca gave birth to her first child, Martha, followed by Charles and Emily and then the two Arthurs.

And one more HOWEVER, this time in large type. The daughter of William and Rebecca WHEATON, one Catherine Ann WHEATON married John FREESTONE in 1847, and in 1851 living with John and Catherine FREESTONE was a Martha WHATTON (WHEATON?) age 7 born Manea, Cambridgeshire, described as a cousin. Martha, the daughter of Rebecca would have been 7, and although the Martha living with Catherine Ann in 1851 is a niece rather than a cousin I am sure this is the same person. If so, it does suggest that Catherine Ann and Rebecca (of Unknown Parentage) were sisters, just as I have surmised in the foregoing notes! So, Rebecca has accordingly been included here as William and Rebecca’s younger daughter.

Notes for Charles WHEATON:
On the death certificate the age of Charles is given as 24, which indicates that he was born in 1850. There are no Charles WHEATON births in the Indexes for 1850.

In the Birth Indexes at the Family Record Centre information for all the Charles listed for the period 1840 to 1867 have been found. They went to America, died, or are on the 1881 Census. Except one, and that is the Charles born in 1845, son of Rebecca. We have assumed, therefore, that given he died in the Workhouse his age may have been estimated, which allows for the discrepancy.

On her birth certificate, and that of her sister and brothers, no father is entered, and their mother is Rebecca
On her marriage certificate her father is shown as William WHEATON, Labourer.

Where is there information which could match these details?

1. Rebecca WHEATON baptised 1795 daughter of Robert and Catherine, wife of William WHEATON
They married in 1821 and had two children, Charles and Catherine both baptised in 1825. William WHEATON was not living with a wife in 1841, and in 1851 said that he was a widower.
However, they could have parted, and Rebecca had three children with an unknown father. William was still alive in 1870 when Emily married, and perhaps there had been a reconciliation. On the other hand, if the WHEATON family was a close-knit one, perhaps she was brought up by William’s father, also a William.

On the other hand, Rebecca would have been at about 48 when Martha was born, least 50 when Charles was born, and 52 when Emily was born. And would she have given this son the same name as her first-born? We do not think this is the right Rebecca.

2. Rebecca WHEATON living with Robert and Catherine in 1841. The ages of all three do not coincide with the dates we have for their births but it seems likely that the Robert on the census (born 1781 instead of 1772) is the son of William and Elizabeth WHEATON, and that the ages were wrongly given, or written down. There is about a ten year difference for the two adults which might be acceptable when the ages involved are 60 and 70.

But what of the Rebecca? Her age is given as 14 years old. Robert and Catherine’s daughter would have been 47 year old. If a mistake was made, a 33 year difference is somewhat different to the 10 year difference in the ages given for Robert and Catherine. Perhaps this Rebecca was a granddaughter. In 1843 she would have been 15 years, so could just have been the mother of Charles. But why did Emily give William WHEATON as her father’s name? Robert and Catherine did not name any of their sons William.

If Rebecca was born in 1827 as calculated from the age on the 1841 Census, and she was a granddaughter of Robert and Catherine, which of their children was her parent?
i Jane married in 1812, so would have been a COUSINS in 1827
ii Rebecca married in 1821 to William WHEATON (See 1 above) She and William could
have been the mother of this other Rebecca, born 1827, and this would fit in with the
other two children, both baptised in 1825. If the mother, Rebecca, had died before
1841 as originally deduced from details on the 1841 Census for William, perhaps
the daughter, Rebecca, went to live with her grandparents. Perhaps they were concerned
that they might not be able to keep her as they were so much older, which is why they
indicated that they were younger than their true ages on the 1841 census. The mother
of Emily named her son Charles, which, if she is part of the William/Rebecca WHEATON
family means she gave him the same name as her brother.

It would also follow that perhaps, if Emily was in contact with her mother’s father, she
might have thought of him, not as her grandfather, but as her father. On the other hand,
she might just have wanted a name on the marriage certificate.
iii Ann married in 1820 so would have been a HALL in 1827
iv Richard married in 1825, his daughter was born 1826 and he died in 1838. We have
no information about what happened to the daughter, or the wife. It is possible that
Rebecca the daughter could belong in this family. But, why did Emily say her father
was William?
v Sophia married 1823 so would have been AUBREY in 1827
vi Elizabeth married in 1828, so it is possible for her to be the mother. But again, where
did the name William WHEATON come from for Emily’s father?
vii Phoebe died 1829, age 17, so as she would have been 15 in 1827 it is just possible that
she could have been Rebecca’s mother
viii Daniel, would only have been 13 in 1827
ix Isaac, similarly, he would have been too young.

3. Rebecca WHEATON née WEST or BECK, wife of Robert WHEATON. The couple were together with two of their children in Somersham in 1841, and on their own there in 1851. A Rebecca WHEATON, wife of Robert WHEATON died in 1853, so it seems unlikely that this Rebecca is the mother of Emily and her brothers.

There are no other Rebeccas in our WHEATON family, or in other records in the counties of Huntingdonshire or Cambridgeshire

Given all the foregoing, it seems most likely that William WHEATON and his wife Rebecca
(née WHEATON), had a daughter Rebecca, whose baptism we have not found. From census information it would seem that William’s wife died young which could have left him with at least three children born before 1827, so perhaps under 10 years of age. His wife’s parents, Robert and Catherine, took one of the children, Rebecca, born 1827, into their home. They were concerned because they were getting on in years, so when asked for their ages for the 1841 census they made out they were ten years younger than they actually were. Their granddaughter, Rebecca, was at this time 14, and working as a female servant. Two years later Rebecca gave birth to her first child, Martha, followed by Charles, Emily, Arthur, and after his death, another Arthur.

Since writing the above we have found Martha WHEATON, sister of Emily, living with her aunt Catherine WHEATON. This proves that Emily’s mother Rebecca, was the daughter of William and Rebecca WHEATON.

On Family Search there is a baptism for a Margaret Scott PARKER 17 February 1833 St Botolph, Bishopsgate, London, London, which seems to fit. However, the parents were Thomas PARKER and Sarah of Windsor Street, whereas in the Marriage Register for the Philip WHEATON/Margaret Scott PARKER marriage Margaret’s father was shown as Charles.

The William WHEATON we believe was the son of this William, married in 1884
He married from Chaseside, Enfield, Middlesex, the home of Philip WHEATON
son of Robert and Margaret (née PARKER) which is why we think this is the right
marriage. However, he gives his father’s occupation as “Platelayer”.

A William WHEATON born about 1823 appears in the Court, Land & Probate, England & Wales, Criminal Registers, 1791-1892, Huntingdonshire records for the July 1842. Does this information apply to this William WHEATON?

WILLIAM WHEATON c1819/1822 – 1887
Thomas WHEATON and his wife Mary (née) SEEKINGs had baptised three children before the birth of their son William. As there was a very enthusiastic non-conformist movement in Huntingdonshire at this time, it is probable that William and his younger sisters, Ann and Hannah, were all baptised in Somersham Baptist Church whose records seem to be unobtainable.
(John TERRY’s web site 11/5/2019 – John has found the baptism in St Mary Wesleyan, Ely, Cambridgeshire)

William was the third son in the family, and the fourth child born although his sister Hannah had died at the age of 2½ years, probably about the same time as William’s birth date. It is likely that the family were poor, and especially so after 1829/1830 when Thomas, the father, was receiving aid from the parish. Times must have been even harder when Thomas died at the age of 40 in 1836, but the family seems to have been quite close-knit for in 1841 all were still living with Mary, their mother, and Ann, their grandmother, in High Street North, Somersham, Huntingdonshire. Mary was earning her living as a Washerwoman, and all three sons were Agricultural Labourers. However, before the date of the next census in 1851 the grandmother, Ann WHEATON née GUNTON, had died in Cambridge after moving there to be near her daughters, the eldest son, Robert, had moved to Clenchwarton, Wisbech, John was probably in Manchester where he married in 1854, and William had married.

William had married Ann ASPINALL on the 24th June 1844 in the church of St John the Baptist in Somersham. The couple’s first home appears to have been a house in “the yard” owned by William ASPINALL, probably Ann’s father. In 1847 William had been excused payment of church rates on the grounds of poverty. He was still occupying the same house in 1848, 1850 and probably in 1851 when on the census the address is shown as 1 Asplan Yard. Living with them in 1848 and in 1851 was William’s mother Mary and the family were again excused paying rates in 1848 and 1850.

A daughter, Jane, was born to William and Ann in April 1845 just over nine months after the wedding, followed by Thomas in 1847, Eliza in 1849 and Emma in 1852. Again, none of the children were baptised in the parish church. In the November of 1851 the first of the tragedies faced by this family occurred when Thomas died of Scrofula at the age of 4 years, his grandmother, Mary WHEATON née SEEKINGS, being the informant of his death.

The family must have moved from Asplan Yard before 1854 because at that date they were living at a water mill known as “The Water Engine in Somersham Fen”. The twenty foot wide river on which the mill was situated was crossed at this point by a plank. On the 26th September William had gone to work leaving his wife at home with Jane, Eliza and Emma. The children, together with another (as yet unidentified) older child, were sent to a field to glean. At sometime during the afternoon, the two younger ones, Eliza aged 5 and Emma aged 2, decided they were going home, tried to cross the plank, and fell into the river. William NORMAN, a shepherd to Mr Thomas EAKINS saw what had happened, and instead of trying to save the children, ran to the mill where Ann was working, and then ran across a field to fetch another man to get the children out of the river. William, who was some distance away, heard the screams of his wife and ran to save his daughters, but was too late. At the Inquest held on Wednesday the 27th September before the coroner, Charles MARGETTS, verdicts of Accidental Death were recorded. The Coroner rebuked William NORMAN for not trying to save the children himself, a rebuke which one newspaper considered to be “justly-merited”, whilst another newspaper called him a “booby fellow” because, if he had tried to help immediately, one of the little girls might have been saved.

At the time of the death of her daughters Ann must have been at least six months pregnant for a son was born towards the end of the year. He was named Thomas, and he, and his elder sister Jane, were both baptised on the 10th December 1854 in Somersham parish church. Although it might look as if William and Ann had decided that, after the death of three children, baptising their other children was needed, their next visit to the church for such a ceremony was not until the 12th May 1861 when sons Henry (age four), William, (age two) and John (age an infant) were all baptised on the same day. They then continued with the delay as Philip born 1863 (and registered as John!) was not baptised until 1864, and Eliza born 1865 was baptised in 1868 at three years of age.

William, Ann and the children obviously left the mill after the accident and moved back into Somersham itself where they lived in the Main Street in 1861 and Squire Lane (now Parkhall Road) in 1871. However, ten years later, in 1881, William and Ann with their son John were living at Mill House. Was this the same home where they were living in 1854 when their daughters were drowned?

William did not follow the occupation of Butcher undertaken by so many in his family probably because so many of them had already set up shops in Somersham and the surrounding villages and towns. Instead, for most of his life he was an Agricultural or Farm Labourer. At the time of the death of his daughters in 1854, he was working as an Excavator of Rivers and Drains which could have been the reason for living so near the river. On the 1884 marriage certificate of his son William he is shown as a plate layer, but there is no other evidence to support this.

The first of his children to marry was Jane. As she married in 1867 in Wandsworth it could be that she had left home to go into service. In 1881 she was living with her husband and children in 8 Bullock Road, Fulham where her brother Henry and sister Eliza were staying on the night of the census. The next in the family to marry was Thomas. He married Susan TURNER in Somersham in 1878 and he and his wife and family remained in Somersham until at least 1889, but then they too left Huntingdonshire to live in the Pancras and Fulham areas of London. Henry was married next, and he and his family remained in Colne (although his descendants either did not have children or they also moved to London). Two marriages, both in 1884, were those of William and Philip, and both of them also left Huntingdonshire for Fulham originally. The other two children, John (who had no living children) and Eliza, both married after the death of their father, and both remained in the local area. However, as can be seen, this particular line of WHEATONs, who had lived in Somersham for over one hundred years, had, by the end of the nineteenth century all left the county of Huntingdonshire.

William died, age 68 years old, on the 25th March 1887 of Bronchitis and Exhaustion. His widow, Ann, was the informant. Ann continued to live in Somersham in Main Street, supported by her daughter, Eliza HOY, who was the informant of her death. Ann died on the 11th July 1900 aged 80 year of Enteritis and Syncope?

NEWSPAPER REPORTS OF THE DROWNING
OF ELIZA AND EMMA

From the CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS 30th September 1854
SOMERSHAM. – Distressing Occurrence. – Two little girls, of the respective ages of two and five years, daughters of William WHEATON, living at a water-mill on the bank of the Twenty-feet river, which divides the fens of Warboys and Somersham, were drowned on Tuesday last. They had crossed the river with two elder children, who were sent to glean, and during the afternoon left their companions unobserved; and it is supposed that in attempting to recross, both fell into the stream. The mother was at work in the mill, within a few yards of the spot, unconscious of the circumstance, until apprised by a booby fellow, who, seeing a child struggling in the water, ran to tell the woman. Had he rendered immediate assistance the probability is that one life might have been saved; but the short interval which elapsed between seeing and doing completed the sad catastrophe. An inquest was held on Wednesday, Verdict, “Accidental Death”

SOMERSHAM. – Two Children Drowned. – An inquest was held on Wednesday last, the 27th inst., before C MARGETTS, Es., coroner for the Hundred of Hurstingstone, at the Water Engine, Somersham Fen, on the bodies of Eliza WHEATON, aged 5 years, and Emma WHEATON, age 2 years, children of Wm WHEATON and Ann his wife, who live in the said mill. These children were suffered to cross by a dangerous plank the twenty-foot river, and in consequence fell in and both perished. The jury, after a patient investigation, returned a verdict of accidental death. The first witness examined was William NORMAN, shepherd to Mr Thomas EKINS, who saw one child in the water; and the man actually ran into the mill and told the child’s mother instead of getting the child out; and then ran across another field to fetch a man to get it out. The father of the children being some distance off at work and hearing the screams of the mother, ran and got them both out, but too late to save either of them. The man NORMAN received a justly-merited rebuke and caution from the worthy coroner.

41. William5 WHEATON (Robert4, William3, William WHEATLEY or2, Thomas WHEATLEY or1) was born 4 July 1813 in Somersham, Huntingdonshire, and died Aft. 1861 in Australia?. He met Ann SEARJEANT Bef. 1837. She was born Abt. 1817 in Burwell, Cambridgeshire.

Notes for William WHEATON:
Addresses
1841 Sun Street, Holy Trinity, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. Also in same property was Mary
MAYSE, age 40, born in Cambridgeshire
Living with them was an Elizabeth WHEATON age 15, so too young to be a daughter. It
is probable that she was actually Elizabeth SEARJEANT sister to Ann, William’s wife.
1845 Sun Street, Holy Trinity, St Andrew the Great, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
1851 Cambridge Gaol, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

The details given by this particular William do not correspond entirely with the information we have for “our” William. However, given the outcome of the offence it could be that he was endeavouring to protect his wife and family. He stated that he was a Butcher and a Beerhouse Keeper and that he was born in Somersham, Huntingdonshire, although he also stated that he was unmarried and the age given indicates that he was born in 1817, four years later then this William.

A William WHEATON, “late of Conington, Cambridgeshire” was tried at the Easter Quarter Sessions 1852 (8th March). He was tried for for sheep stealing, found guilty and sentenced to be “transported for the term of his natural life”.

In later Census returns this William is not with his wife and children and we can trace no other records for him. It would suggest, therefore, that this William spent the rest of his life in Australia.

Easter 1852 –
This Day an Indictment was preferred by Philip Kirby against William Wheaton late of the Parish of Conington in this county laborer for Sheep stealing Which Indictment was found by the Grand Jury to be a True bill And the said William Wheaton being present here in Court and having heard the said Indictment read pleaded Not Guilty thereto and put himself upon the Country but upon Trial was convicted Whereupon it was considered by the Court and ordered that the said William Wheaton be transported for the term of his natural life to such place beyond the seas as Her Majesty by and with the advice of Her Privy Council shall be pleased to direct.

In 1851, in the Castle Gaol, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire there was a William WHEATON. He stated that he was unmarried, a Butcher and Beerhouse Keeper and that he was born in Somersham Huntingdonshire. Was this the same William WHEATON as the one sentenced to be transported?
Given that the William WHEATON in the prison is shown as a Butcher, and that his birth place was given as Somersham, and as all WHEATONs in Somersham so far discovered are all descended from the same Thomas (c1700-1754), the William in prison in 1851 must be one of ours. However, we had thought he was married with children!
With his age shown as 34, he was therefore born in 1817. There are two contestants. William (born 1813/1816), son of John and Alice (Chart 0604) and William (born 1813, baptised 1817), son of Robert and Mary (Chart 0602). The son of John and Alice is on the 1871 Census; the son of Robert and Mary is on the 1841, but in 1851 he is not with the family we thought were his.
There is still uncertainty because at this date the woman we thought was his wife was calling herself Ann MARTIN. And, of course, the William in Cambridge gaol said he was unmarried, and the one transported was “late of Conington”, where, so far we have found no other WHEATONs.
Further research is to be carried out to try to solve the problem.
Records in Australia show the following:

“WHEATON, William: (Convict no 3151), born 1816, unmarried, butcher, semi literate, protestant, convicted Cambridge 1852, stealing sheep, prev.conv.life; arrived per the RAMILIES 7.8.1854. Ticket of leave 11.5.1857, conditional pardon, 12.8.1861, Perth”.

The “RAMILIES” was a barque built at Sunderland in 1850. The master was Chas HODDER, and the surgeon Daniel RITCHIE. The ship left London on 20 May 1854 and stopped at Plymouth and Gibraltar. Two hundred and eighty males were embarked of which one hundred and sixty were landed at Gibraltar, but then another one hundred and fifty seven were taken on board. This made the complement on leaving Gibraltar two hundred and seventy seven. The journey took seventy nine days which was considered to be something of a record, especially with the two ports of call.

(The above information was sent by Judy GIFFORD with whom I had been in contact about GIFFORDs; a GIFFORD married a DRING, who married a MARSHALL, who married a HYDE, who married a WHEATON!)

Details from the Perth “Convicts” Web site:

William’s registered number was 3151, he was a Butcher and single, with no children. He was 5’ 4¾” tall, with brown hair and hazel eyes. His face was oval and he had a fair complexion. He was of a stout build with no distinguishing marks. His sentence was for life for sheep stealing, and his age 38 years.

On the 20th July 1849 in the in the Court, Land & Probate, England & Wales, Criminal Registers, 1791-1892, Cambridgeshire a William WHEATON was convicted of sheep stealing and given a sentence of two years. In the documents for the 1852 William WHEATON trial information was included that he had been convicted previously for the same offence. Therefore it is probable that this 1849 trial was for this William WHEATON.

Also in same property was Mary MAYSE, age 40, born in Cambridgeshire
Living with them was an Elizabeth WHEATON age 15, so too young to be a daughter. It
is probably that she was actually Elizabeth SEARJEANT sister to Ann, William’s wife.
1845 Sun Street, Holy Trinity, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

In 1851, at 48 Newmarket Road, Holy Trinity, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire there was an Ann MARTIN, Butcher. Originally it was thought that this was this Ann WHEATON who had married again, as in the same property was an Elizabeth SARGEANT, (26) servant, and Ann E SARGEANT (3) Visitor and three WHEATON children who are shows as the son and daughters of Ann MARTIN.

There are uncertainties about this entry. More investigation is needed
* No marriage for William WHEATON and Ann SEARJANT has been found
* There is no Ann WHEATON marriage to a MARTIN before 1851. William WHEATON was not transported until 1852. Perhaps she was not married to William and therefore married a MARTIN in the name of SEARJANT
* on the birth certificate of William born 21st August 1838 his parents are shown as William WHEATON (Butcher) and Ann WHEATON formerly SEARJANT
* on the 1841 Census there is a William, age 2, son of William (Butcher) and Ann WHEATON living with Elizabeth and Mary in Sun Street. (Elizabeth is shown as 15 so is probably not a daughter, and is most certainly the Elizabeth SARGEANT on the 1851 Census aged 26)
* on the 1851 Census there is a William age 12, and with sisters Ann and Jane at 48 Newmarket Street.
* No marriage for daughter Ann was found, but there was one for a Sarah Ann which seemed possible, so this has been included for the present.

We wonder whether the following refers to this Ann?

Overseers Rate Book
February 1837 There are entries showing a Robert WHEATON occupying a House and Co and a House and Garden, the property of Wm MASON and John SOCKET respectively. The total Rateable Value was £5.16s. 4d and the rates 7/2½d.
It was decided that the Robert referred to was probably this one (despite the fact he did not marry until 1838) because of the reference to BENTON and Cranbrook in later entries which
are given below.
December 1841 A House, Cranbrook, owned by J STOKER, Occupied by BENTON and WHEATON Rateable value £4.2s.0d and rates 1/6d.

Crowle
A Nonagenarian
Mrs Mary Wheaton, who resides on Crowle Moor is, we understand, Crowle’s oldest inhabitant. She celebrated her 93rd birthday on Wednesday the 13th inst. Out of her family of twelve children only three are still living; but she has thirteen grandchildren, and fourteen great grandchildren. Although blind, and somewhat infirm, she is remarkably bright and cheery, and still takes a deep interest in current events. She has been a member of the Baptist Church for fifty-one years and today is its oldest member.

There was an Annie Elizabeth WHEATON burial 2 August 1901 at St Andrew the Less, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. She was 30 years old and her address was Avenue de la place d’Armes 6, Ghent. This information would fit this Annie Elizabeth – except she had married in 1891. However, as her husband had died perhaps she had reverted to her maiden name?

There was also an Annie E FOSTER death in June quarter 1921, AGE 70 but, although the information fits, as there were obviously two Annie FOSTERs this death information has not been included

Information from letters obtained from Oxford University Archives sent by Albert WHEATON, and his mother Susan to Oscar BROWNING

The letters are to “My dear Mr BROWNING”, and are signed Albert E WHEATON or A E WHEATON,
Closing phrases begin “I remain” followed by: first letter, “yours faithfully”; second letter “with Love I remain yours faithfully”; September 1890 “with love, I remain yours affectionately…”; March 1891 the “with love” no longer included; May 1891 to March 1892 it becomes “yours sincerely” except 10 August when it was “yours very sincerely”; March 1892 “yours affectionately”; July 1892 “yours very sincerely”; 1893 “very” omitted; November 1894 “very sincerely; no more letters until June 1895 “very” omitted; 1899 “With kind regards” was inserted before the “I remain” but just for one letter. Susan writes “yours truly”.

Albert asks after “Ernest” in many of the letters. Albert and Oscar BROWING met on several occasions, but frequently seemed to miss each other.

In August 1890 Albert was “still at school” and using morse code in his letters but considering it too tedious returned to ordinary writing. He hoped to leave the school soon but in weekly exams became flurried and could not work quickly although by September he had failed on only one instrument. By the 28 October he was appointed at the Central Telegraph Office, London at a salary of 12/-d a week, considering himself very lucky as some who had come out of school before him had no appointments. It was shift work, 12 to 8 and 10 to 6, and later 9 to 5 and 12 to 8. When on holiday he had to pay someone to do his work and for a Saturday morning in July 1891 this cost 5/-d. Eventually he had a rise to £45 a year. He was sent home from work as unfit in May 1895 and by February 1896, having sent several certificates to his office, he expected to be asked to resign. In May 1896 he received £26. 5d. 0d bonus.

Many of the messages mention his financial problems or his need for various items. On the 15th August 1890 Albert wrote thanking Oscar BROWNING for a watch and chain and saying that he is “bankrupt” so could not move in with SMITH at once. Oscar BROWNING responded because six days later Albert wrote that the 10/-d for pocket money Oscar had sent was not in the letter; by the 30th August Albert was able to thank Oscar for the money order. On February 21st 1891 he bought a new pair of trousers and had 20/- towards towards a coat and vest, so Oscar sent Arthur a cheque for £1 on the 24th February 1891. At the London and County Bank in the City the cheque had to be paid into an account so Albert used his landlord’s master’s private account. Albert ordered a black coat to be made at a cost of 30/-d and was planning to use the “little over” for gloves, ties and a hat etc. Albert received more money on the 15 May 1891, and again on 10 August 10. However, the cheque was to pay “ten shillings” but the amount entered was “£10.0s.0d”. Albert was “pleased beyond measure” when he saw the figure as he would be able to buy a new suit but his “hopes were soon blasted”. On 23 September Albert was again thanking Professor BROWNING for a money order, whilst saying that he could not go with his friend SMITH to Arcadia at the Agricultural Hall as “funds would not allow it” and this was followed in his next letter with a request for 30/-, offering repay Oscar BROWNING at the rate of 10/- every fortnight. Because his overcoat was three years old and too small Albert wanted an overcoat now as he had a cold for a week but could not afford to get one for another six weeks, Mr BROWNING again sent a cheque, but Albert informed him on the 23 November that he would not be able to repay the loan at 10/-d a fortnight due to the amount he needed for lodgings, “firing and other things” which included the repair of both pairs of boots and so he offered to repay at the rate of 8/-d per fortnight, sending a 7/6d postal order and 5 stamps stuck on the order and one loose as “they will not allow 6 stamps on the order”. The next repayment was delayed as Albert wanted the money so that he could go home for Christmas. The next instalment was paid at the beginning of January, but in the same letter Albert complained that his next holiday was from the 1 February and he had no money saved, and it was not until the 28th March that another 10/-d was sent to Oscar. He again mentioned that he had no money to watch the Boat Race and to go home at Easter. He also wished he had a good “safety” (bicycle). Albert paid the last instalment of 4/-d of his loan on the 12 April 1892, but in the same letter asked for £3 for clothes, again offering to repay the loan at 8/- to 10/- a week. He also mentioned again how he enjoyed the ride to the baths before breakfast when apparently he had used Oscar BROWNING’s bicycle. By July 1892 there had been no repayments as Albert says that he has had to get some new clothes, and he mentions again that he would like a bike ride as well as saying that his watch needed repair having over wound it after having it repaired four months previously for 5/6d. Within days he was writing to Oscar thanking him for a birthday present, no details, but probably more money, but again, in his thank you letter Albert says that he hopes to go home to Cambridge soon, but cannot really afford it. On 11 February 1893 he is still wishing he had a cycle, and on the 28th of that month he finally asks Oscar BROWING if Oscar will lend him his safety bicycle when Albert goes home to Cambridge. There are no more letters until 7 May 1894, but Oscar must have lent more money because Albert is writing to say he is sorry that he cannot repay the loan at the present time; the cycle must have been returned as Albert is asking if he can borrow it again, and later when thanking Oscar for the loan Albert asks if the cycle can be lent to him whilst he is in London. He can only buy one for himself on the “hire system” which he does not care about; in many such letters Albert asks for an immediate reply. This time he says he would have come and asked for it himself, but is busy saying goodbye to all his friends. After arriving in London by the 28 May 1894 with the bike he wrote saying that it had no bell, lamp or saddle bag and although he had bought a cheap bell he could not afford to buy the other items. In the same letter he mentions that he needs to save half a sovereign to have 4 teeth pulled. On the 6 June 1894 Arthur was writing that he was in an awful mess as to money matters as he has been unable to pay his landlady all he owed her, asking for an early answer as he was penniless. There are no letters indicating the outcome of this problems but when Albert was arranging to return the borrowed cycle on the 1 November 1894 he was also apologising for not returning the money he owed to Oscar due to the fact that he had been unwell for 5 months and had used his money for medicines. He would like to see a good doctor, but could not afford one. Six months later in June 1895 Albert was in Cambridge and Oscar has sent a Dr Latham to see Albert, as well as some bottles of burgundy, because Albert wrote to say he was on the last bottle, and would really have preferred burgundy or claret. In April 1895 he felt a trifle better and was again in London but wrote that although he had had his bad teeth removed he could not afford any new ones but planned to go to ESKELLS in Ludgate Circus, a good dentist for artificial teeth. In May his letter is mainly about his ill health, weight loss, and the comment that the doctor had said that he should drink half a pint of claret with his meals which he could not afford. At the end of May 1895 he wrote to Oscar asking advice about a doctor but saying that he cannot afford the guinea fee of a Dr BRADBURY. In response Oscar arranged for a Dr GRIFFITHS to call. The plea about the doctor was followed up by Albert’s mother Susan writing to Oscar accepting his offer, and saying she is happy to receive the Malt and Cod Liver Oil offered and that port wine would be of a great benefit to Albert, which, from a letter a few days later, Oscar sent to Susan In thanking Oscar Susan states that she is not in a position to buy Albert the delicacies he needed. In June Dr GRIFFITHS had been applied to for another certificate which had not been forthcoming, so Albert was looking for another doctor. Apparently to get into a hospital a “ticket” was needed and as the Provost of Kings and the Master of Trinity have them, Albert asked Oscar for one so that he can go to the Brompton Hospital. A few days later Susan is again writing to Oscar to say that a Dr LATHAM sent by Oscar does not give much hope for Albert’s survival. Nevertheless, on the 8 July Albert wrote saying the Burgundy had been delivered but that the suppliers would not let him order any more until Oscar gave the necessary instructions. By October 1895 Albert was in Ventnor and was writing that his vests and pants were causing a great deal of irritation. He also wrote that his mother had gone home, and that he missed her very much especially at night. After his stay in the Ventnor hospital from November 1895 to January 1896 he was told that the Cambridge air was not good for him and that he should stay in Ventnor but he told Oscar that he was receiving only 12/6d a week and that it cost him £1 to live. He could not see how his mother could join him as he did not have enough to look after himself. In March he was looking for properties to rent but needed three lodgers as he had no salary and needed £1 more to live. Oscar must have suggested Albert tried to find work in the Post Office in Ventnor, but there was no vacancy so he planned to return to Cambridge and buy a shop as he had £30 to £35 pounds. He received a £26. 5s. 0d bonus from the office and was thinking of either going to the Cape or Ventnor. He asked Oscar for a letter so that he could attend the hospital as an outpatient, and then in October 1896 he wanted two tickets for the hospital for his mother and sister who were both very deaf. In February 1897 he asked Oscar to help find him a vacancy in the office in Ventnor, rather than the Cape. This does not appear to have happened as on the 30 November 1897 Albert is asking for £5 so that he can go to the Ventnor Hospital for the winter. He promises to use the £30 his brother owes him to repay Oscar; if his brother does not repay the money Albert is going to put he matter in the hands of a Solicitor. He also offers a £15 Insurance Policy as security. In Cambridge again by March 1898 he receives £25 from his brother but has spent most of it so repays Oscar with £5, as he does again in April. In March he asks for help to find a job, and again on 16 May as he has “come to the end of his savings”. By 8 June he has found a job at 20/- a week in Morecambe Railway Station but as he will have to pay his fare to get there he asks Oscar to lend him a sovereign. He also asks for information about Morecambe and the best way to get there. Within 6 weeks he was again in Cambridge, the work proving too much for him so he is thinking of teaching telegraphy, only there would be the expense of buying the equipment again asking Oscar for ideas as to what he could do. On 9 October 1899 he tells Oscar he has to go back to Ventnor but it will cost him £5, 10/- a week for 10 weeks. He has been offered £3, but he asks if Oscar for help with the rest. It is a year later, when back in Cambridge, that Albert accepts the offer of left off clothes and asks for warm under clothing, shirts and socks, and for a sovereign for a month or so. He again asks me help to find medical care although the hospital say they “don’t take advanced cases” but will have him for a month. On the 7 February 1901 he asks for £4 to be paid back at £1 a month as they have no lodgers and are behind with the rent. Susan does not send the £1 as she thought she might need it after Albert dies on the 5 March 1901.

In February 1879 Albert wrote about old books he had including “History of England” by ? Wm Henry MONTAGUE in two volumes printed 1770 illustrated copperplates by WALE and engravings by GRIGNON and WALKER; ” Book on Julius Caesar in Latin by Octavo printed 1770″; “English & French Dictionary by BOYER printed 1699” and “A Book on Botany by MILLER printed 1722”. In October 1890 a book by Sir Horace WALPOLE written about 1770 called “Royal Authors” is mentioned, and Oscar is asked if he understands old prints and engravings as Albert has several.

Activities/Holidays etc.
Bank Holiday before 15 August 1890 – went to Cambridge. Albert saw a Cricket match at Fenner’s Ground between Anchor and the Camden in the Cambridgeshire Cup Tie Competition. The Anchor won by about three hundred runs. On the previous Saturday he had a bathe at the St George’s swimming baths which he enjoyed very much.
On the 30 August 1890 – Arthur cycled to Kingston on Thomas and on to Hampton Court. He was very appreciative of the lovely scenery along the way.
Christmas 1890 – he went home on Christmas Eve and went back to London on the Monday. Whilst in Cambridge he went skating.
January/February 1891 – Arthur went to Drury Lane to see Lady Dunlo as the heroine in Beauty and the Beast. He thought it beautiful and enjoyed himself.
October 19 – November 9 1891 – was booked for his holiday when he expected to go to Cambridge although he also planned to go to Hull were he had some relations. He did think of cycling home but decided he did not want to do it by himself.
February 1891 – he was wanting to go to a smoking concert in aid of a man who was compelled to leave the service because of illness, who has a wife and eleven children to provide for, and has only been granted a small pension.
May 1891 – Albert went to the landlord and landlady’s silver wedding where he has a jolly time, crawling into bed at half past four in the morning. He is hoping to a Naval Exhibition which he believes is very good, and which he believes Oscar BROWNING has already visited.
Whit Monday – Albert went home to Cambridge arriving about 12 o’clock.
19 July 1891 – To Cambridge on Friday night, 31st July, and return on Tuesday morning, spending his birthday at home. He was travelling on the 7.30 from Kings Cross “which arrives at 9.18” together with SMITH who was taking his fortnight’s holiday.

March 1892 – Albert went to the Grand to see the pantomime Dick Whittington and his cat which he thought very good. A Miss Lottie COLLINS sang Ta-ta-ta-boom-de-ay and brought the house down, was called back three times and could have continued all the evening as far as the audience was concerned.
July 1892 – Albert played in a cricket match
August 1892 – Albert was hoping to get home at the time of his birthday “if he could afford it”. Apparently he did, but although he could not find the time to visit Oscar BROWNING he did get to the Workmen’s Hall Flower Show in Jesus Close before leaving to catch the train back to London.

February 1893 – Albert was to visit Cambridge for his three weeks holiday.
April 1894 – Albert started his holiday on the 28 April and returns to London on the 21 May. He spent quite a lot of time, which he enjoyed very much, riding about the Cambridgeshire villages,

28 May 1894 – Albert played his first cricket match of the season against Enfield “a nice country ride out”
November 1894 – He had been cycling, and playing tennis. He won The Lawn Tennis Handicap of the office club, value £1.1s. 0d which was going to be spent on a Gladstone bag. He had also been playing football for the Electric first eleven and won a mach 4-0 in the London Senior Cup.
1894 – only off for Christmas and Boxing day so thought it not worth going to Cambridge.
1895 – he was to take his holiday in February

The weather is often mentioned. On the 21 August 1890 it had been pretty fine in London for the past day or two and the weather in Cambridge was lovely. By the end of the August it was still pretty fine, a month later it was lovely weather, but by the end of October it was very cold, although fine, whilst by the end of November it was “beastly cold”. February 1891 had very cold weather, and it also very foggy making everything as black as night. By May 1891 it was changeable, one day hot and fine, one day cold and wet, but a few days later it was so hot that all the windows were opened as wide as possible and they had no fires. Awfully wet weather appeared a couple of months later, and then “frightful” weather by the middle of August, with wet weather expected as it had been “raining since half past seven this morning”; by September it was changeable. Weather is next mentioned in March 1892 when because it was a miserable foggy day, gas was used for dinner, and it had snowed in the night. He had had enough of the wintry weather so was pleased that by the beginning of April there had been some lovely weather. No mention was made about the weather again until 31 August 1892 when it was very changeable, but by February 1893 it was very rough and blowing a gale which meant all their wires were down at the office. Nothing more was included until the 28 May 1894 when the weather was a bit better now. Perhaps the fearful weather with driving rain all day long contributed to his ill health by the end of the year. Weather is mentioned again in October 1895 when he is on the Isle of Wight when it was beginning to get cool, although it was nice and warm in the sun, whilst a month later it had been cold but was by then very mild, which appears still to be the case in January and early February too. By March 1896 there had been a frost the night before but the weather was fine although there had been a gale. There was so much sun, and so dry that his cough was much better

Albert was often lonely. He was glad that he was going to live with SMITH and by the end of September he and SMITH were getting on alright, although a couple of months later he was writing that “the best of friends often have rows with each other”. SMITH took longer for his Christmas break in 1890, and Albert complained that he was all alone until SMITH returned. However, he did go to the theatre with a friend in early 1891. SMITH would not go with him to a smoking concert in February but Albert was going alone. In July 1892 that SMITH left the Alfred Street lodgings as his articles “were up” and within three weeks, was complaining that he felt very lonely and was looking for a friend who would go to lodge with him. Whilst in Ventnor, after his mother had left, he very soon found a fellow from the office to stay with him for his three weeks holiday.

Before he was ill Albert took note of current events discussing with Oscar debates held in the House of Commons. He knew what Oscar BROWING was doing, who he is meeting, when he goes on holiday and where. He was interested in cricket, mainly Cambridgeshire cricket, and in the Cambridge/Oxford Rugby match. But it was the Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race which had the most mentions. In 1891 he notes the name of the new Postmaster General as Sir James FERGUSON, and in April 1892 he wishes Oscar BROWNING success when he stands for Parliament while at the same time commenting on the candidates who will be standing for Cambridge. After the election Albert discussed various aspects of the election result and commiserated with a defeated Oscar, and in November 1894 he commented on the honour Oscar had received by having a visit from the Duchess of York.

In November 1894 he writes that he has a girl who is very well connected. Her Uncle was the City Editor of the Morning Post with two sons who were authors “on a small scale”, having written one or two novels and who wrote regularly for the Strand Magazine under the nom to plume of “Huan MEE”. (Their father was Charles MANSFIELD and sons Charles Herbert MANSFIELD & Walter (Edward) MANSFIELD). Her father was Manager of a large bank in Lomard Street before he died. Albert was invited to the marriage of her eldest sister on the 8th October. But in July 1895 she wrote to Albert saying that her affections had changed and that they could never be more than friends. He was amused that she vowed she would never change, wept when he left her, and then soon forgot him and found another. On 3 February 1897 he mentions that he will be getting married soon, no other information!

On the 15 May 1891 he wrote that he had had a touch of influenza but was better now. On the 28 May 1894 he says that since he has been in London his old complaint, the neuralgia, has returned and he needed to save up half a sovereign so that he could have 4 teeth out by gas, he also needed 6 stopped. In November that year (1894) he was telling Oscar BROWNING that he had been ill for 5 months and was using his money to buy medicines, although he also tells him of his sporting exploits during the last few months. He wrote of pains in his back and shoulders which one Doctor said was indigestion and the other said it was congestion of the liver. Albert thought it was perhaps his bones getting set after he had turned 21. Within days of telling Oscar this he was writing again on the 16th November 1894 to say that he was laid up with influenza, feeling queer, dizzy and nearly fainting. His official doctor said there was nothing wrong with him, although another doctor he consulted said it was influenza. By December he had recovered from the influenza but still had the pain in the back and thought that the strengthening medicine he had been taken had been good for him. In June 1895 Dr Latham, send by Oscar BROWNING told Albert that his lungs were bad and that the problem probably started the year before when he had influenza and the office doctor had him back to work before he had recovered. The doctor suggested he went into Brompton Hospital, but Albert preferred to be treated as an Out-patient. He was drinking port wine sent by Oscar but asked for burgundy or claret instead. Dr Latham did not call again as promised, but previously had written a prescription for strengthening pills and some cough mixture. The “young MOSS” who made up the pills made a shocking mess of it and made them too large so that Albert nearly choked when one stuck in his throat for two or three days. Albert sent the pills back to be made into two. His feet and legs were so bad that he could hardly walk and as he did not have a drop of blood in his feet which had cramp, as did his hands. He was back in London by June 1895 but was still unwell. He had seen a Dr Howard MARSH (Surgeon at St Bartholomew’s Hospital) who provided Albert with a certificate showing that he was suffering from Debility and Neuralgia and was not to be overworked or work long hours. He was still having problems with teeth having had the bad ones extracted by gas at Guys Hospital and now needing some new teeth as he had been told he would not get better until he ate well, and at the present he could not eat even the things he fancied. He was still having problems walking but was hoping for a transfer to a seaside town, Dover or Brighton which he thought would help his health. In May 1895 he was sent home from work by the medical officer for a month and told not to return until he was better; he went home to Cambridge. Albert thinks he returned to work too soon in March and since then has last 16 lbs. He is taking Keplers Extract of Malt and Cod Liver Oil as well as strengthening, indigestion and sleeping pills. He has been told to drink claret as he has hardly any blood. He is not going out as he cannot keep warm and sits right on top of the fire. He thinks he is a miserable object. In May his mother tells Oscar that Albert does not think he will recover. By the 12 June 1895 Albert’s problems include pains in liver, kidneys and shoulders, whilst his “water is very bad”. His appetite is bad, he never feels hungry and wind is rising into his mouth all day. This is followed by a report by Susan from a Dr LATHAM who says that Albert’s lungs are badly affected and does not give him much hope of recovery. The doctor thought Albert ought to have a regular attendant, although it does sounds as if Albert was able to go for a drive the day before. A fortnight later Albert said that he had been out in a bath chair and felt a bit better. In October 1895 he was in Ventnor and had gained 5½lbs in the three weeks he had been there attending the outpatients department of the hospital. He now has a skin complaint but is much better, especially as when he first went to Ventnor he had no hope of recovery. In November he is planning to stay in the Royal National Hospital in Ventnor 2 miles away to which he has been walking to recently having lost his languid feeling. He thinks the hospital is more a convalescent home where in the blocks every patient had a separate bedroom and between every six or so there was a large sitting room with pianos, billiard and bagatelle tables, all for 10/-d a week. After leaving the hospital in January 1896 the Doctor said he was not fit for work so should resign, and that the Cambridge air was not good for him. He was told that he should stay in Ventnor but he could not afford to. He has gained weight during his stay in hospital where he had been told that he had a cavity in his right lung and that he should have gone straight to the hospital for treatment when he first arrived on the island. His certificate for work on the 10th February said that “excavation extends over the right upper third back, crepitation posteriorly down to angle of scapula, some deposition left apex”, and was told that the “tubercular diathesis” was marked but he has gained more weight since leaving hospital. In May 1896 he was back in Cambridge having gained 21 lbs and feeling considerably stronger. In the winter of 1897 he returned to the hospital in Ventnor for 14 weeks when he was told that he only had one lung and that his heart had shifted to the right but that his health was much the same as it was at the end of the previous visit. However, back in Cambridge in March he is not so well.. Although he find a job in June 1898 he is worried that it will be too much as his heart seems a bit rocky, which it proved to be after 6 weeks. He was told he needed open-air exercise and not work at all. He believes he could write a book on consumption having read so much about the disease, knowledge he has put into practice so that he has not been to a doctor since leaving Ventnor. The reasonable health did not continue, he had lost a stone in the last two years, and by October 1899 he was being advised to return to Ventnor. October 1899 he is in Cambridge again having strained his back a year ago. He is short of breath, his heart to the right side, stomach and liver pulled up and right lung gone, circulation bad and considered a “a “curiosity” by the doctors He dies at 3.20 5 March 1891.

There would appear to be some confusion about which children actually belong to Thomas WHEATON and Harriet, which belong to John ARNOLD and his first wife, and which belong to John ARNOLD and Harriet.

1. Noble WHEATON (b1860) was registered as Noble Wheaton WATSON, baptised as Noble WHEATON and continued using that name throughout his life. Thomas WHEATON and Harriet Ann WATSON married 4 years after his birth.

2. Clara Jane WHEATON (b1864) was born, baptised and died using the name WHEATON.

(Thomas WHEATON, husband of Harriet Ann, died in 1865

3. Laura Harriet WHEATON (b1868)
4. Frank John WHEATON (b1869)
5. George Henry WHEATON (b1870) (Also shown as Harry on census returns)
All three were registered with the surname WHEATON, although on his certificate George Henry’s
father was not shown. Despite the fact that Thomas WHEATON had died in 1865 Laura Harriet
was baptised in 1870 as a child of Thomas WHEATON. All three died as WHEATON, although in
1901 Laura Harriet was shown as an ARNOLD.

(In 1872 Harriet married John ARNOLD and on the 1881 census Noble WHEATON is shown as son-in-law (step son) whilst all the other children, including Laura Harriet WHEATON, were shown as ARNOLDs and as sons or daughters of John ARNOLD. As these three children were shown as ARNOLD on the 1881 although John and Harriet had not married until 1872 after the birth of all the three children, was John ARNOLD the father of Laura Harriet WHEATON, Frank John WHEATON and George Henry WHEATON?)

6. Walter George ARNOLD (b1871)
7. Kate Louise ARNOLD (b1874)
8. Mary Alice ARNOLD (b1875)

It was thought that George Henry/Harry ARNOLD and Walter George ARNOLD were children of John ARNOLD and his first wife as they were born before John ARNOLD married Harriet WHEATON. However, we now understand the first wife died in 1870 age 50, having had a son in 1849, so it is unlikely that George Henry/Harry and Walter George were hers. Were they John’s and Harriet’s as well? If so, why was George Henry a WHEATON and Walter George an ARNOLD?

And if Laura Harriet WHEATON born 1868, Frank John WHEATON born 1869 and Henry George WHEATON born 1870 are all John ARNOLD’s when his wife did not die until the September quarter of 1870……….!?

Harriet Ann WATSON was married twice. Her second husband had also been married before. There are therefore descendants of children of these two individuals born both before they married each other and afterwards who do not appear in the Thomas WHEATON (1700c-1754) Descendant Report. Therefore, a Descendant Report for John ARNOLD has been copied into these notes.

Father: William (45) Farmer, Mother: Mary (45), siblings John (25), Elizabeth (23), Thomas (20),
Mary (20) Mantle Maker, William (15), Hannah (15), Henry (14), (then Ebenezer (12)), Eliza (35),
and Emma (3) – all born in Cambridgeshire. Living with them was William BEDMAN (20)
Blacksmith
1851 Wimblington, Cambridgeshire
[note on the heading of this Census it was originally Doddington and this has been crossed
through and Wimblington put in – I think therefore I have found the correct Ebenezer, and he
was born in Doddington as the IGI shows and the 1841, this Census says Ebenezer was born
in Wimblington, which I think is what Wimbledon should be on the 1861 Census]
Family on this Census – William (58) Farmer of 78 Acres, born Wimblington, Cambridgeshire,
Mary (56) born Doddington, Cambridgeshire, siblings all born Wimblington, Elizabeth (36),
Sarah (28), Hannah (21), [then Ebenezer 20), Emma (12) and Sarah (5). Living with them was
Joseph GRIMWOOD (15)servant also born Wimblington, Cambridgeshire.
1861 Only Ebenezer REDHEAD was born 1832 in Wimbledon, Cambridgeshire, was an Ag Lab
but no details given as to status but was Cousin to Head of House. No wife present.
Park Lane, Leverington, Cambridgeshire
Living with Henry REDHEAD (32) Farmer of 76 acres employing 2 men born Wimbledon,
Cambridgeshire, his wife Mary (32) Farmer’s wife born March, Cambridgeshire, children
Elizabeth G (5) born Wimbledon, Cambridgeshire, Fanny M (3) and Edward G (3 months)
born Leverington, Cambridgeshire. Servants were Julia KILBURN (21) House Servant
born Wells, Norfolk and John WINTER (16) Carter born Newtown, Cambridgeshire

(This gives the problem of the relationship, I would have thought again the birth places should
be Wimblington, but this Henry ties up with the Hanry on the 1841 and IGI baptism and would
mean that Ebenezer was really the brother of Ebenezer not his cousin, However as Ebenezer
is an uncommon name and is the only one that appears on the 1841 and 1851 Census and the
only one in Cambridgeshire on the IGI, and I would think that this is the same Ebenezer on all
three Censuses.)

IGI Baptism. Parents down as William and Mary REDHEAD.
IF this is the correct Ebenezer REDHEAD which I believe it is there were the following children for William and Mary (including Ebenezer)
Elizabeth REDHEAD baptised 6th January 1817 Doddington, Cambridgeshire
Sarah REDHEAD baptised 31st March 1822 Doddington, Cambridgeshire
Hannah REDHEAD baptised 18th July 1824 Doddington, Cambridgeshire

husband, to America in the late 1830s from Cambridgeshire, England, the area in
which Daniel WHEATON originated. They must be related, but as yet we have not

Following information from Diane TAYLOR and Phyllis SCHNEDLER
Will of Daniel WHEATON
Daniel originally left money to Sarah RIDER, his housekeeper, who had been widowed twice by this time. However, as she died before Daniel, Joseph RIDER’s daughter, Lily, took care of Daniel in his later years. However, the inheritance Daniel planned to give her was later cancelled through a Codicil to his Will.

Information from Claire GRANTHAM 18/5/2008
Benjamin Robertson GOLDSMITH born Yoxford 1820
His baptism cannot be found in Yoxford. Claire is wondering about his name and whether he could be an illegitimate son of Robert’s, although he gives William as his father on his wedding certificate.

Shown as Benjamin Robertson WILMOT on the death certificate of his widow, Rebecca Goldsmith WILMOT.

Information from Claire GRANTHAM 18/6/2009
The is a chancery case concerning the will of a Benjamin ROBERTSON of Stockwell who left money and land for a botanic Garden which was overturned in which BEDWELLs and a William and wife Mary GOLDSMITH gave evidence. The money eventualy went to B. R’s. nephew John BEDWELL. I am not sure if this is coincidence or the reason for naming Benjamin bap 1822 Benhill

Another chancery case was brought by the Reverend Parker GILBERT, Beatrice’s father against
Miles READ, the husband of Beatrice’s sister Henrietta. In 1869 they had also run away to be married. The Rev Parker GILBERT was trying to exclude Miles from enjoying any money that Hennrietta was likely to inherit and pressing for the cost of the action as the stamp duty was £100. This was likely to be a considerable amount so this could explain the name change to WILMOT. The birth indexes used to be open to public view and then he would have easily been able to trace them.

There is a death for a Phoebe THOMPSON Bet. July – September 1918 Chesterton District, Cambridgeshire which we thought was that for this Phebe. However, given the census information for the other Phoebe THOMPSON I think this death information belongs to her; the Chesterton District includes Maddingley.

Phebe was baptised in 1831. Was she born earlier?
Richard, her father, died in 1838
Mary, her mother, with Phebe and her sister Mary were in Needingworth in 1841
Mary, her mother, married Henry PRIOR in 1844
Phebe, who would have been 17 in 1848 at the time of her marriage to Samuel PRIOR, stated that she was “of full age” The marriage certificate shows that she was the daughter of Richard WHEATON, Butcher.
Her age at death makes her born 1829

Although there is confusion about the age of Phebe it would seem that the Phebe WHEATON/Samuel PRIOR marriage is correct.

Barbara WHEATON suggested that this Emily Rose LEE living with her Aunt Clara in 1871 could be the same person as Rose Lee TAYLOR living with her Aunt Clara in 1881. Both girls were born about 1865 (1871 & 1881 census), Emily Rose LEE in Strand District, Middlesex (registration) or St James, Middlesex (1871) and Rose Lee TAYLOR in St Anne’s. Soho, London, Middlesex (1881 census). (St Anne’s was in the District of the Strand, but was then moved to St James in 1868 which could explain the confusion about the birth places)

Emily Rose LEE’s birth is registered and then she only appears on the 1871 census with Aunt Clara, no further census information has been found, nor a marriage or a death.
Rose Lee TAYLOR’s birth is not registered either as LEE or as TAYLOR and then she only appears on the 1881 census with Aunt Clara, no further census information has been found, nor a marriage or a death.

The only possible clue, although no where near definite, is that in 1871 also living with Aunt Clara was Robert W LEE, son of Wheaton LEE. Robert is living with his father in 1881. It was therefore assumed that Emily Rose LEE was Robert’s sister and she was therefore also a child of Wheaton LEE.

As there is no certainty about whether these two girls are the same person for the time being Emily Rose LEE has been left as daughter of Wheaton LEE, and Rose Lee TAYLOR has been left as daughter of Elizabeth TAYLOR née LEE.

Any information to help us sort this out would be welcome.

Charles H WHEATON was known as one of the best judges and successful buyers of stock in Huron County. He had purchased cattle since he was fourteen years old and was thought to have bought more than any other buyer in the country. He was born in England and was eleven years when he accompanied his father to the United States, where he finished his education. He stayed at home with his parents until 1861, when he enlisted for three months’ service as a member of Captain Sawyer’s Independent company organized under the laws of the state of Ohio. When his period of service was finished, he returned home and with his brother, Dennis E WHEATON, took charge of his father’s meat business, which they carried on for many years until the block was destroyed by fire. The brothers then went to Cleveland, where they carried on the same kind of work for seventeen years, before Charles returned to his old home to take care of his father and his father’s estate. The fine brick house which the latter erected still stands upon the place and is in excellent condition.

It is said that his life was one of continuous activity, and his success was brought about by his industry and energy. Charles did not belong to a political party, preferring to support men who were working for what he considered was “the public good”. His high rank among his contempories was attributed to his loyalty to America, his great material success and “his honorable manhood and true personal worth”.

From “The Fireside Pioneer”

Charles H WHEATON and his wife celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on Thanksgiving day, Thursday, 25th November 1920, at their home on the Old State Road, Norwalk township. Many relatives attended the event to honour the man his friends considered “genial, wholesouled and very popular.”

Charles had been born in England, but his wife, Anna “Annie” Lydia WHEATON, daughter of Agur Breach HOYT, was born in America.

Living with them in their home was their daughter, Mary Walter E BATTLES, her husband and two children.

He was born Feb.5, 1840, at Earith, Huntingdonshire, England, and came to this country in 1851 with his parents, the late Daniel and Ann (Mehew) WHEATON. Most of his life was spent in Norwalk, where on November 29, 1869 he was married to Lydia Ann HOYT daughter of Agur Beach and Melinda (Hack) HOYT. Mrs WHEATON passed away Aug. 3, 1924. Mr WHEATON who was the last of a family of ten children, was survived by two daughters, Mrs Frederick W SMIES of Cleveland, and Mrs Walter E BATTLE of Norwalk.

He was a member of the old Norwalk Light Guards and in 1861 at the outbreak of the Civil War, he enlisted in Co. B 8th Ohio Infantry and served his country gallantly until the close of the war.

From “Commemorative Biographical Record of the Counties of Huron and Lorain, Ohio”
Copies provided by Stephan and Carol PYENTA and Olive PROBERT

The true standard by which to judge a community is the character of its prominent citizens. Progress is rarely, if ever the result of chance, but always the executions of well-laid plans based on a thorough comprehension of the laws of business. It is only by keeping in view the lives of men who are ever associated in the busy marts of commerce that we can judge of the importance of development, and the possibilities of progress. Thus, it is, that from the commercial, more that the literary or political side, the most valuable lessons of life are to be extracted. In this connection, as a gentleman whose business qualifications are of the best, as indicated by the numerous enterprises which he has brought to a successful issue, a brief biographical sketch is given of William H PRICE, president of the Norwalk Savings Bank Company.

He was born in Herefordshire, England, in 1845, a son of Henry and Elizabeth (Harris) PRICE, the former of whom is a farmer of Herefordshire, and both the PRICEs and HARRISes are of Welsh descent, coming from the line of ancient Britons. Samuel PRICE, the father of the Henry PRICE above mentioned, and also the great-grandfather of the subject of this sketch, were both born at the old family home, Grenow, in Herefordshire, which is still in the family possession. The PRICEs were stock dealers and farmers, while the maternal branch of the family were seafaring men and miners; two of them were sea-captains, sailing from Swansea. The venerable parents of the subject are still happily residing on the old homestead – the beloved father and mother of seven living children.

W. H. PRICE reached his manhood in his parental home, receiving but a fair business education in the public schools of the vicinity, after which he served an apprenticeship to the droving and slaughtering business. At the age of twenty-one he came to America with Mr William PROWBERT , of the firm Will PROWBERT & Co., Cleveland, who was a friend of his father, and who in his day was one of the leading business men of that city. Mr PRICE was associated with Mr PROWBERT two years, having charge of much of the firm’s business, especially the buying of stock for slaughtering purposes; after two years’ service in this capacity he became manager of the firm of E CADLE & Co in a similar line of business. Continuing four years with this company as manager, he organized the firm of W H PRICE & Co., closing with the old firm. During the next six years the new firm did a leading wholesale and retail slaughtering business in Cleveland, at the end of which time Mr PRICE again sold and retired, on account of failing health, caused by his over-zealous attention to their extended affairs. He sailed for Europe in the early part of 1878, and again visited the familiar scenes of childhood, and those of the dear old parental home. This change and total relaxation of all care continued through the season, and brought a happy restoration of health and strength. It is proper enough to here say that this was his second severe sickness in this country. Soon after he first came to America, and when he had only been fairly launched in business, an unfortunate accident befell him that finally sent him to the hospital for a long term, and where he had to undergo a dangerous surgical operation, from which he barely emerged with life. The young man had come with but a limited capital, and his sickness exhausted this and all his earnings, leaving him more than one hundred dollars in debt – misfortunes that would have quite vanquished many a young man, especially if far from home and family friends. While the young man’s energy outran his physical nature, yet he had resolute will – a soul undaunted and a purpose high, he moved ever forward. On his return from Europe he organized the firm of PRICE & CHANDLER, which did an exclusively wholesale and retail business, furnishing meat to the retail dealers, and many of the public institutions of Cleveland, Mr PRICE visiting Chicago and St Louis, purchasing the stock of the firm. His solicitude and constantly painstaking labor, in whatever capacity he acted, again told upon his health; and after the firm had enjoyed three years of very prosperous business he found it necessary to retire from active life in order to allow his energies to recuperate. With this view he sold out his interest in the firm and removed to a farm in the suburbs of Norwalk, where after two years of quiet and outdoor exercise he found much of his former vigor regained, and soon again plunged into business. In 1884 he was associated with C H STEWART in a real-estate partnership and during the five years they were actively thus engaged they laid off four additions to Norwalk, and the rapid growth of the place then commenced, as they sold more lots and built more houses than all the other dealers in the place, helping many workmen to buy their homes, as they would sell to them on the instalment plan. The period from 1884 to 1889 was marked as the improvement era of Norwalk and much of this was due to the energy, foresight and liberality of this firm.

In 1889, in connection with C H STEWART and W O MONETT, Mr PRICE organized the Norwalk Savings Bank, a co-partnership concern until 1891, when it was reorganized and was chartered as a joint-stock company. Mr PRICE has been president of both organizations, and this is now one of the most successful financial institutions in this part of Ohio, with a capital stock of one hundred thousand dollars. Mr PRICE is a stockholder in the First National Bank of Norwalk. In the early part of 1892 the people of Norwalk became deeply interested in the question of electric motive power for street and road transportation. As the rapid development of the use of electricity as the hand-maiden of man, street railroads became a leading question, and a road connecting Sandusky, Milan and Norwalk was mooted. This called out people of greatest enterprise. A company was soon formed, the project put on its feet, and was rapidly pushed to completion. Mr PRICE is a prominent stockholder and director, and was by the unanimous voice of the owners called to the most important place in directing its movements, the company all feeling that with him at the helm there was ample guarantee of assured success. Another enterprise of moment to the city was also launched in 1892, when a company was formed to build the Norwalk Foundry and Machine Works, now a successful plant, and again Mr PRICE was called by his fellow stockholders to the leading place of president. In the organization of the Arcade Savings Bank Company, of Cleveland, he was a prime mover and is a stockholder; was active in establishing the GARFIELD Banking Company, whose place of business is located in Cleveland and owned by PRICE & STEWARD; he is a stockholder in the Dime Savings Bank of Cleveland, president of the Norwalk Nursery Company, a president of the Norwalk Brick Company, two of the important industries of the city, which may well look to him as their foster-father, as they received the benefit of his intelligent judgement and financial resources. He is vice-president of the Smith Speciality Company, one of the flourishing factories of the place; stockholder and director of the Norwalk Metal Spinning and Stamping Company, and stockholder of the Lake Erie Tobacco Company, of Norwalk. As stated, he has opened four additions to the city of Norwalk, on which he has built over 150 houses, and in addition to these many important interests Mr PRICE operated two farms; and it is not to be wondered it is said of him that he is one of the busiest of busy men.

The chief elements of Mr PRICE’s success lie in his competency to plan, coupled with the executive ability and shrewd foresight. His mind is never easy except when the channels of each enterprise with which he is connected are clearly defined. It is in the fog that the ship strikes upon the shoal or rock, and is wrecked. Business natures have their misty days, and it is then that a hand at the helm, familiar with the way, saves from collapse. It may well be said that no enterprise with which Mr PRICE has been associated has ever proven a failure. He gives personal supervision to every detail of his business, and the wonder is that he succeeds in doing so, considering the extent and variety of his occupation. In person he is of strong frame and medium stature. During his youth he was quite an athlete, and met few men his equal in physical strength, but on just entering into his business career a severe spell of sickness left results that have impaired his physical vigor. He has since been forced to gauge his accomplishments to his strength. In reviewing his life and early associations, and recalling many who started equal in the race with him, but whose lives have fallen short of success, he has been prone to speculate as to whether his physical disability has not been a main cause of his keeping himself aloof from the entanglements and dissipations which have proven destructive to many others. Yet it may be safely held that men of Mr PRICE’s stamp, who have a definite aim in life, are hard to swerve from their course. They go straight to the end, surmounting obstacles as if driven by the hand of destiny. However, after having made life a marked success, it may well be said of him that he has achieved all under adverse circumstances.

William H PRICE and Catharine A WHEATON, daughter of Daniel and Anna (Meyhew) WHEATON, natives of Cambridge, England, were joined in wedlock May 15, 1872. Mrs PRICE was born in the old English home and came to America with her people when but three years of age, the family locating in Norwalk, where they made their home. Mrs WHEATON died in 1878. To Mr and Mrs PRICE were born six children, as follows: Harris Wheaton PRICE, born April 25, 1874, now a teller in his father’s bank; Bessie L. (deceased); Anna Meyhew; Bessie Louise; Wesley Hildreth, and Olive Edna. The family is Protestant in faith, and Mr PRICE, while he may be classed as affiliating with the Democratic party, has always been in fact independent in his voting, preferring the best men and public weal to mere party claims.

From “The Firelands Pioneer”

“On Tuesday morning, September 17, 1895, one of Norwalk’s most esteemed citizens, died at his residence in this city, after a brief sickness of typhoid fever. He was born in Norwalk about forty years ago, where, except for a few years sbsence, he spent his life. He leaves an aged father, a widow and a son, two brothers and three sisters to lament his loss. The “Chronicle” said of him:

“Leonard was the youngest son of the WHEATON family, and as a boy and man, was an especial favorite with all who knew him. At the last city election he was chosen a member of the City Council, receiving the largest majority of any candidate on the ticket. Upon the organization of that body he was selected as chairman of one of the most important committees. By his attention to the interests of his constituents and his prompt business methods, he assumed a leading position in the body of which he was a member.

The deceased was a printer by trade, and served an apprenticeship in this office under its first proprietors, but abandoned the stick, and rule to engage in pursuits more congenial to his taste, and prior to his demise was conducting a market on Hester Street in this city.

Leonard will be missed and his handsome face and pleasant greeting will no more be seen and heard on our streets.”

The 1900 census shows that Rose had had two children and by 1900 only one, Daniel, was still alive, although on the 1901 she is shown having just the one child which was still living!

There are two references which could refer to Rose
(1) married 25th July 1899 Huron Co, Ohio, USA to Joseph Thomas DOOER
(2) died 1929, buried Section 3 East, Central Section, Row 2 No.114 & 119, Woodlawn Cemetery, Norwalk, Ohio, USA

It would appear that Joseph DOOER died sometime between 1900 and 1910 and that Rose reverted to her original married name as it would appear that she is shown as Rose WHEATON on the 1910 census if the above census information is correct. This would explain the name used for the burial in 1929.

i. Daniel C6 WHEATON, b. 11 December 1889, Norwalk, Huron County, Ohio, USA; d. 30 September 1951, Gambier, Knox, Ohio, USA as Don C.

Notes for Daniel C WHEATON:
Addresses
1900 Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, USA
Living with them was grandmother Clara BUSH (63) widow born New York, USA
1910 Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, USA as Don C WHEATON; mother Rose WHEATON who
was living as sister-in-law with William F NAGEL (36) Foreman Rail Road Freight born
Germany, and his wife Mae R (34) born Ohio, USA who we assume was Rose WHEATON’s
sister. There were also William and Mae’s adopted daughters Rosalie (13) born Ohio, USA and
Clara (6) born Illinois, USA. Boarders were Anna DUNBAR (45) Dressmaker by the day, Howard
PALMER (23) Stenographer and Howard CLINE (21) Clerk Rail Road Office, all three single and
born Ohio, USA
1920 Not found

In Daniel WHEATON’s Will he mentioned “Daniel, the only son of Leonard”.
In Steve PYENTA’s records he shows the son of Leonard as Earl with a “?”
I had assumed that this could have been a misread of the name Daniel
Then Donald ROSS shows a Donald as the son of Leonard with the additional information that he taught at Kenyon College.
Further clarification is obviously needed.
However, we now find that the 1900 census shows Rose’s son as definitely Daniel C WHEATON.
But then again on the 1910 he is shown as Don C
So we have assumed that Earl was a misread, and that Daniel and Donald are the same person.
And now on the familysearch site he is Don C

1871 28 Darwin Street, St George the Martyr, Southwark, Surrey

It would appear that George left Anne and married bigamously! Anne appears to have died after George remarried. However, the only certificate we can find which might apply has the husband as John WHEATON a Cab Driver. A John ALLDIS reported the death and was present at 49 Clinn Street, Bermondsey, Surrey. Perhaps as she was a WHEATON, and he was a John, she became the “wife” of John WHEATON”. There was a John ALLDIS on the 1871 census age 36 Cab Driver born Southwark, Surrey. He had a wife Ellen and son John (17) born Bermondsey, Surrey. We shall never know the answer!

Details from the death certificate:
Died 10th April 1878 49 Clinn Street, Bermondsey, Surrey
Ann WHEATON Female 36 years,
wife of John WHEATON Cab Driver
Phthsis 3 years Certified Walter HART,

Notes for Frederick WHEATON:
Addresses
1851 Slade End, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire as WHETON with grandfather Philip and his family
1861 Slade End, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire as Read W WADLOW
Given that there is no Read WADLOW birth registered, and no Frederick WHEATON 1861
entry I believe that Frederick WHEATON and Read W WADLOW are the same person.
Perhaps the Enumerator misread “Fred” in his notes as “Read” when he came to write up
the information.

Does the following apply to this Frederick? Mother died 1870
Passenger Lists, 1820-1943
about Fredk WHEATON
Name: Fredk WHEATON
Arrival Date: 26 Jan 1871
Age: 21 Years
Estimated birth year: abt 1850
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Liverpool, England
Ship Name: Siberia
Port of Arrival: Boston, Massachusetts
Microfilm Roll Number: M277_79

Details from the 1880 census onwards are collected from ancestry.com and need supporting evidence before being definitely included in this family tree. Fred WHEATON was the only individual with that name, born in England about the right time. In 1900 his birth date is shown as September 1850 which matches with this Frederick WHEATON although on other census returns his date of birth varies, as does the year in which he arrived in America – between 1865 and 1874.

Information from Logansport Pharos-Tribune Wednesday April 15 1936 sent by Adrian GIBBS 10/4/2015
Man meets death fighting flames
Linton Ind – Searchers Tuesday found the charred body of Thomas J WHEATON, 63, prominent Greene County farmer, on a farm 12 miles south west of here. His clothes became ignited while fighting a grass fire on a neighbours farm, causing him to go blind and rush madly into the raging fire. His screams attracted neighbours to the isolated region where he was stationed to fight the fire, but the blistering heat precluded immediate efforts to rescue him. It was necessary for neighbours to wait several hours for the fire to die down before they could start the search. They found the body below burned timber.

There is a Rebecca WHEATON, widow born Indiana, USA having had

Is this entry for Rebecca TAYLOR who has taken some years off her age?
She is living a few doors away from grandson “Andy” STITT and family.

Note “Rebecca’s death certificate gave father’s name as “TAYLOR”. That may either be a first or last name. Records show that:
1 Howel gave his mother’s maiden name as “Becca ROYS” probably BASS;
2 Nancy gave her mother’s maiden name as “? BASS”,
3 Rebecca gave her mother’s maiden name as “? BASS”.

COMMENT? The name may be pronounced as “BASE”. This will make sense that “OYS” was miscopied “R” instead of a “B” and a “O” instead of an “A”. Thus it may have been “BASS” which was pronounced as “BAY” “BASE” but read as “ROYS”

Notes for Frederick Thomas WHITTLESEY:
Addresses
1851 Not found

Was he brought up by his Uncle Thomas and Aunt Mary?
In the Birth Index the 1843 entry was the only Frederick/Frederick Thomas/Thomas/Thomas Frederick WHITTLESEA/WHITTLESEY birth registration in Cambridgeshire up until 1856
It is the same reference as the registration for Rebecca so we have assumed they were twins.
However, we have no other information for this Frederick Thomas

A Thomas Frederick WHITTLESEY of the right age (but no birth registration) appears on census returns with the family of Thomas and Mary WHITTLESEY as their eldest son. In 1861, living with Thomas and Mary, is shown as Frederick. Thomas and Mary were the uncle and Aunt of this Frederick Thomas (probable twin of Rebecca) as he was brother to William, the father of Frederick Thomas.

In 1843 when Rebecca and Frederick Thomas were born William had just remarried, he had two children by his first wife that his new wife would have to look after (they were 7 and 5) and then she has twins….so perhaps William’s brother and his wife helped out by taking one of the babies, Frederick Thomas, and bringing him up as their own son, Thomas Frederick.

Information has been added for these two families on this assumption.

Information from Margaret TAYLOR 6/2/2006
A cousin did some research years ago and found out that Thomas was an illegitimate foundling born in a workhouse in Cambridge where he was taught the baking trade. This information came long ago before computers made research more reliable. (Note from JKW: HOWEVER, I have now received information which says this was not the case. See “Information from Wheaton FREESTONE” below)

My father Robert 12th of the 13 children told me a lot about Thomas but not that he was illegitimate. It seems that Thomas came to Shenley and worked as Baker for the SCALES family, and brought up all his family working for them but when he, Thomas, was 50 the SCALES’s son took over the business. Thomas was out of a job with I think 5 children still at home. My Father said that Thomas was held in such regard by Ranks the Millers that they backed him and built a bake house, installed ovens etc and granddad was away. He was joined in the business by his last 3 sons Wheaton, Robert (my father) and James (Note from JKW: See “Information from Wheaton FREESTONE” below). The Family opened businesses in two nearby small towns, and the next generation carried on until the late fifties

I have always been interested in Thomas and wanted to find out more about him. My father called him a scholar, because when he wasn’t working he had his head in a book. I said where did he get his books, and it seems that one of the local gentry allowed him the use of his library. From this he went in for an exam in competition with 30 school masters and came top. The certificate exists and was left to my brother who seems to have lost it, imagine!! I am trying to locate it. I think this must have been the beginning of the Workers Education Association. There was I think, among the upper middle classes, a wish to educate the deserving poor. Anyway he went on to become involved in politics and was proposed as socialist M P with Kier Hardy and went to London to stand, but returned to Shenley a bit shook up. My dad said It felt a bit too revolutionary for him; he decided he was a Liberal.

One other thing that might interest you is that Wheaton is scattered through the family as a first or second fore name The only ones I know of for sure are my fathers older brother and his son but my father talked about this strange Christian name in the family. He said it was because the family were farmers and millers in the Cambridge fens for generations thus are legends made!!

Information from Wheaton FREESTONE 28.6.2007
Thomas FREESTONE was not illegitimate or anything. He was employed by the workhouse as a baker. Second paragraph basically true except for name James, that name should be Ernest John (nickname Jainey). Yes, Ranks did loan money to start the business. Thomas had to commit the business to always buy flour from Ranks.

Method used to repay loan:
Every sack (bag) of flour (1cwt.) supplied had a deposit on it. When the sacks were returned (empty), the deposit was not returned but used to repay the loan over a number of years.

Yes, Thomas was scholarly and did borrow books probably from the RICHEE family who were farmers, and who in later years did start a library for local people. He used his education to teach young unemployed men of the village to help them on their way in life. My aunts tell me he did dabble in local politics but no more than that, possibly attending some rallies.

The last paragraph about WHEATON name we know the origin of that. In my searches of FREESTONES I think I may have got back to the 1770s when they were farmers in Earsham, Norfolk.

Information from Wheaton FREESTONE 24/2/2011
A spinster, occupations Postmistress and Book Keeper working in Elstree,Herts until about 1930 when she stopped to look after her mother. She was a small presise lady and a stickler for punctuality and would be decidely feisty if timekeeping was not kept. She went to work The story goes that she went to work every day, until one day the bus left her behind because it left 2 or 3 mins early. She checked her watch then crossed the road to a shop and phoned the man in Watford (about 6 miles away) and complaind so fiercely that he sent a car to take her to work. She always arrived at the stop on time and its said that the bus crews set their watches by her. She lived in her house from when it was built about 1908 until her death and never altered it except for getting mains water, even the lavatory stayed down the bottom of the garden. Just a personal note, I used to love going round there as a kid, toasting crumpets lots of butter, it was a magical place to me, with old cooking range, the flat irons on the side.

Information from Paula TATE 4/2/2006
“Philip was a Blacksmith. As a child my mammy pointed our railing in Forty Hill, Enfield which she said Philip had made”.

“One of the family stories about Philip is that he was convicted of manslaughter following a brawl and did a stretch on the treadmill. Again, I don’t know how likely this is”. More research required yet again!

Was this one of the schemes taking “orphan” children to Canada as at this time the mother of William and Thomas was working as a Nurse in Guys Hospital and later lived with, then married, George WEST. The “Ontario” certainly carried “Home Children” to Canada.

No obvious marriage or death in the English Civil Registration Indexes

On trawling through web sites for other information I came across details of a Thomas WHEATON in the 1901 Census of Canada.
He shows his birth date as 8 October 1862, and birth place as London, England.
There was no Thomas WHEATON births registered at this time in England
However, a Thomas WHEATON was born on the 18 October 1863 at 5 Guildford Place, Clerkenwell, Middlesex, the Thomas to whom this record belongs, and who was a member of my husband’s family.

The Canadian Thomas says he emigrated in 1874 when he would have been 12, which is rather young.
However, the Thomas WHEATON in Den’s family had rather a dysfunctional family which could be the reason for such an emigration. (However, I have since found information which suggests he went to America in 1888 – see below)

Thomas’s parents were Robert and Margaret Scott PARKER. They had two children, Philip born 20 February 1855 and John born 8 September 1857 both in Somersham, Huntingdonshire. They then married on the 30 January 1860 at St John the Baptist Church in Somersham before moving to London where in 1860 a son, William WHEATON was born in Drury Lane, Middlesex (no Civil Registration record). In 1861 they were living at 1 Crawford Place, Clerkenwell, Middlesex, but without son Philip who was living with an aunt, Elizabeth CASTLE at Parberry’s Row, Enfield, Middlesex.

A daughter, Mary Ann, was born in 1862 at 5 Guildford Place, Clerkenwell, Middlesex but she died within weeks of her birth. Thomas was then born on the 18th October 1863 also at 5 Guildford Place, Clerkenwell, Middlesex.

Robert WHEATON, Thomas’s father died 28 February 1867 at the Small Pox Hospital, Upper Holloway, Middlesex Age 55. The Death certificate showed “Small pox 12 days complaint unmodified & accd in difft circ certified” which has not yet been investigated. Robert’s address was given as 16 William Street, Newington, Surrey where we assume the family were living at this time; Thomas would have been 4 years 4 months.

Just over a year later Robert’s widow, Margaret WHEATON, née PARKER, gave birth to a daughter, Frances WHEATON on the 30 July 1868 at 20 Brandon Street, Walworth, Surrey, she only survived a few months, and was followed by Alice Maude WHEATON born at 55 Beckway Street, Walworth, Surrey in 1872, who also soon died.

At the time of the census in 1871 Margaret WHEATON was working as a nurse at St Guy’s Hospital, but Thomas, now 8 years old could not be found. His oldest brother, Philip, was at Windmill Hill, Enfield, Middlesex (RG10/1344 folio 6 page 3), again living with Elizabeth CASTLE, Head, Widow, Age 60, Annuitant born Enfield, Middlesex, Aunt to Philip WHEATON. Neither John nor William, other brothers, have been found on this census either.

In 1881 Margaret WHEATON was a dressmaker lodging with a George WEST in Newington Surrey, and in the June quarter of 1882 at St Saviour District, London Margaret WHEATON married George WEST. However, at the 1877 and 1881 marriages of Philip, Margaret’s eldest son, the witnesses were George and Margaret WEST.

Of Thomas’s surviving siblings, Philip married twice, was a Blacksmith, lived in Enfield, Middlesex and had a total of thirteen children. John, the next brother never married and was moved from the Wandsworth Asylum to the Three Counties Lunatic Asylum, Stotfold, Bedfordshire where he was living in 1881 and 1891; he died there on the 10 March 1892, aged 35 years. He could have been a shoemaker, he could have been blind but he was also described as a “Sailor from Somersham”. Records for brother William have not been found in the UK. (August 2011 But he could have travelled with Thomas to Canada and then later made his way to America)

So, with his father’s death in 1867, followed by the birth and death of two half sisters, as he was not living with his mother in 1871, perhaps he was with relatives using their name at the time, and travelled to Canada with them.

Given the information in the foregoing it has been decided to include details about the Thomas found on the 1901 Canadian Census until it is proved that he is not the same man. Subsequently more information has been found on the 1891 and 1911 census returns, also details of a marriage. Further details about Thomas’s arrival in Canada suggest he did arrive in 1874 age 10 with a William WHEATON age 14. This would suggest we have the right information as we have been unable to find details for Thomas’s brother William in the English records.
