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.

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.

                If he was the son of Jonathan GUNTON surely his surname would be GUNTON?

                So, perhaps he is 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.

                (This is doubly intriguing as my mother was a POWELL before her marriage!)

                Lodging with them was Peter PICTON (45) Married, Book Binder born Lancashire.  No wife

                was living with him.

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.

1811        Somersham, Huntingdonshire

 

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 £3.5s0d, 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.

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 no guilty

 

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

     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.

                There is a Robert HIDE lodging in Cottenham, Cambridgeshire who was born Colne,

                There is also a Robert HIDE death in March quarter 1854 in the St Neots District,

                Huntingdonshire and one in December 1858 in the St Ives District, Huntingdonshire.

               Robert HYDE.

 

                There was one Robert HIDE marriage in 1839 and three Robert HYDE marriages in 1839,

                1852 and 1883.

 

                So, no clues anywhere!

A Joseph WHEATON appears in the Court, Land & Probate, England & Wales, Criminal Registers, 1791-1892, Cambridgeshire records for the Epiphany term 1830.  Does this information apply to this Joseph WHEATON?

Joseph WHEATON : Offence - Converting to his own use property he had found : Sentence - Judgement arrested

 

Although the occupation does not appear to match all other Joseph WHEATONs are too young to be the one below.  But the address is right and then the next entry mentions "Butcher" so I think this is the right man

An Ann BECK was baptised at St John the Baptist, Somersham, Huntingdonshire on the 21st October 1832.  She was the daughter of Elizabeth BECK and a Philip WHEATON.  Given the ages of the various Philips we think that this one is the father of Ann.  However, he was buried before the baptism of his reputed daughter!

Notes for Rebecca WHEATON:

Addresses

1841        High Street, Bluntisham, Huntingdonshire

                At this address there was a Robert (born 1781) Catherine (born 1786) and Rebecca (born

                1827) WHEATON.  There are no others with these names in our family in

                Huntingdonshire in 1841.  Was Rebecca a granddaughter, a daughter of William or

                Richard?  To include the information within the family it has been decided that

                William and Rebecca were the parents.  (See explanation below)

                Living with the family was William SKINNER (25) Shepherd born not in Huntingdonshire

1842        Manea, Cambridgeshire

1845        Bluntisham, Huntingdonshire

1847        Union Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire

1849        Union Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire

1851        St Ives Union Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire

 

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 Harris (Chatteris?), 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.

                At this address was Catherine Ann FREESTONE née WHEATON with her husband and family,

                together with John FREESTONE's mother, Sophia.

                Living with them was a Martha WHATTON, a cousin born Harris, Cambridgeshire age 7.  It is

                more than likely that this was actually a Martha WHEATON and that Harris should be

                Chatteris.  The only Martha WHEATON of the right age is this one, daughter of Rebecca.

                This information has enabled us to decide that Rebecca was a sister of Catherine Ann

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.

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.

 

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"

 

From the CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE 30th September 1854

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.

*    The family was still in Huntingdonshire in 1867, and there is no Jane BATEMAN death in

      Lancashire from 1867-1871

*    There is a Jane BATEMAN born Somersham 1861 on the 1871 census but she is shown as the

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.

Notes for Ann SEARJEANT:

Addresses

1837, 1838    

                Sun Street, Holy Trinity, Cambridgeshire

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 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.

     October 1842   A House, Cranbrook, owned by J STOKER, Occupied by WHEATON and HILLS Rateable Value £5.0s.0d, rates 5/-d

     Church Rates

     17th August 1843 Cranbrook, Rateable value £2.10s.0d @ 2d. so Robert was charged 5d but he seems to have paid 11½d which included 6½d for his Aunt, Mary WHEATON.

If still living in Cranbrook, Somersham, Huntingdonshire In 1859 the family would probably have been pleased to hear that the Parish had decided on the 23rd March to repair the road leading to the Cranbrook Houses

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 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.

1891        13 Chalfont Road, Islington, London

1901        12 Hornsey Street, Lower Holloway, Islington, London as a widow

1911        Not found

 

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.
