PHILIP (1821-1904) and MARY ARNOTT
One of my Philips was missing! 
He was born in Somersham, Huntingdonshire in the early nineteenth century, but all that could then be found out about him was that in 1841 he was living with his brother and sister in the same village. And then the 1881 Census Index was completed and it showed that this Philip had moved to Newcastle, Northumberland. After writing letters to various WHEATONs in the area it was very exciting to make contact with one of Philip's descendants.

(And would you believe it?  Philip is missing again!  I cannot find a Philip (even a Phi* or Fi*) age 80 +/- 5, born in any of the places I can think of on the 1901 Census!  We have tried Phi*, 50 +/- 50, born Hunt* which should pick up all the Philips born in Huntingdonshire. I have also tried Phi*, 80 +/- 5, and all the first two letter combinations there are. (e.g. AA*, AB* through to ZZ*). He died in 1904 in Newcastle, so where was he in 1901?) 


As this family is one of "mine", information for "PHILIP (1821-1904) and MARY ARNOTT" is included in THE DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS WHEATON (c1700 - 1754) and Ann SPARROW which is to be found on the HUNTINGDONSHIRE and CAMBRIDGESHIRE WHEATONs page, but can also be accessed from the box above. A GEDCOM file is still available for THE DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS WHEATON (c1700 - 1754) and Ann SPARROW. 

JOHN (TREE) (c 1835-1893) and SARAH ANN SCOBELL
In the process of investigating and collating information sent to me by the various other WHEATONs contacted in the north east of England I found eight of the families who had written to me all had a common ancestor. In 2006/2007 I have made contact with two other members of this family.

The common ancestor was John Scobell WHEATON, who I found did not originate from Cramlington, Northumberland after all, but had previously lived in Dawlish in Devon. We have not yet been able to find the birth of his father who could have been baptised as John TREE. John (TREE) WHEATON first married Ann BENNETT in 1857 in Starcross, Devon and had six children. After her death in 1869 he married Sarah Ann SCOBELL in 1872. By 1881 he had apparently taken his family to the north east of England after mining on the west country had resulted in the loss of employment for so many in the Devon and Cornwall area. It is probable that he left Devon for Cramlington between 1873 (birth of John Scobell WHEATON in Dawlish, Devon) and 1877 (birth of Samuel WHEATON in Cramlington, Northumberland). So, further investigation has enabled us to trace this line back to "JOHN (TREE) (c1835-1893) and SARAH ANN SCOBELL" from Dawlish or Exmouth in Devon.  I suppose he should be included on the DEVON WHEATONs page, but as he and his Devon born children lived most of their lives in Northumberland, they are still included on this page for the present.

Two Descendant Reports are included for this family, one for John showing his two wives and their families, and one for his second wife, Sarah Ann SCOBELL as she was a widow when she married John and she married again after his death.  The family for John and Sarah, of course, appear in both reports.

PHILIP CHARLES (1818-1874) and MARIA TOTTEN
There was a third WHEATON in the Northumberland area, a descendant of "Philip Charles (1818-1874) and Maria TOTTEN". Their children were born in London where several died at a very early age. Philip Charles and Maria had also died before 1881 but in that year one of their children was at school in the Newcastle area and he and a brother both died in the north-east. This family also originated from Devon as we found that Philip Charles was a descendant of Thomas (bc1702- before 1779) and Sarah GODFREY (bc 1707-1779) 

Therefore, the family of "PHILIP CHARLES (1818-1874) and MARIA TOTTEN" is included in the THOMAS (bc 1702-before 1779) and SARAH GODFREY file which is to be found on the DEVON WHEATONs page, but can also be accessed from the box above.
