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.

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.

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.

Notes for Jane BATEMAN:

Charles and Jane BATEMAN were born on the same day and have the same Birth registration information.

 

However...

*    Jane is not with the family in 1871

*    There is no Jane BATEMAN death in the St Ives District from 1871-1881

*    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

      daughter of John and Sarah BATEMAN. She is the 3rd of 4 children.

A problem!

Obituary - sent by Sandra CRAWFORD 30/6/2007

Martha GREENSLADE was born in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, England, March 3, 1818, died at her home two miles southwest of Castalia March 18, 1899, aged 81 years and 15 days.

 

She, with her brother, Joseph PEDLEY, emigrated to the United States in the spring of 1855, and settled with her sister, Mrs. Boyce, near Parkerstown, Erie county, Ohio.  Before leaving England she sustained the loss of her mother, and her father also emigrated to this country in 1861 and lived with his son until 1885, when he died.  Nov. 3, 1858.

 

She was married to George GREENSLADE.  One child, James, was born, who survives them.

 

She was converted and joined the Methodist church in England at the age of 14, and has lived a faithful, consistent Christian life since that time. On coming to this country she united with the Methodist society at the Old Stone church and has lived with us a worthy member, although when the class was transferred to Castalia and the new Methodist Episcopal church built, she was unable to leave her home and attend services.

 

She has been an invalid for 18 years, and for the last six years has been helplessly confined to her bed.  Her great affliction she has endured with a patience which only those are able to bear who have been taught and perfected in the school of Christ.  The end came gently, and like a weary child she folded her tired hands and sweetly fell asleep in the arms she had trusted, with a perfect confidence that all is well.

 

She leaves a son, two brothers, three sisters and two grandchildren to mourn their loss.  The funeral sermon was preached by her pastor, Rev. John F. STRETE, and her remains laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery at  Castalia, O., followed by a large company of sympathizing friends."

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!

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.

Campaign Medals: 

Victory Medal

 

Given the information we have available it is likely that John WHEATON was entitled to the Victory medal, also called the Inter Allied Victory Medal. This medal was awarded to all who received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and, with certain exceptions, to those who received the British War Medal. It was never awarded alone. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.

 

Eligibility for this award consisted of having been mobilised, fighting, having served in any of the theatres of operations, or at sea, between midnight 4th/5th August, 1914, and midnight, 11th/12th November, 1918. Women who served in any of the various military organisations in a theatre of operations were also eligible.

 

British War Medal

 

From the information available to us, it is very possible that John WHEATON was entitled to the British War Medal for service in World War One. This British Empire campaign medal was issued for services between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918.

 

The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period.

 

Service:  British Army 

Regiment:  East Surrey Regiment

East Surrey Regiment during World War 1

 Since 1815 the balance of power in Europe had been maintained by a series of treaties. In 1888 Wilhelm II was crowned ‘German Emperor and King of Prussia’ and moved from a policy of maintaining the status quo to a more aggressive position. He did not renew a treaty with Russia, aligned Germany with the declining Austro-Hungarian Empire and started to build a Navy rivalling that of Britain. These actions greatly concerned Germany’s neighbours, who quickly forged new treaties and alliances in the event of war. On 28th June 1914 Franz Ferdinand the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated by the Bosnian-Serb nationalist group Young Bosnia who wanted pan-Serbian independence. Franz Joseph's the Austro-Hungarian Emperor (with the backing of Germany) responded aggressively, presenting Serbia with an intentionally unacceptable ultimatum, to provoke Serbia into war. Serbia agreed to 8 of the 10 terms and on the 28th July 1914 the Austro-Hungarian Empire declared war on Serbia, producing a cascade effect across Europe. Russia bound by treaty to Serbia declared war with Austro-Hungary, Germany declared war with Russia and France declared war with Germany. Germany’s army crossed into neutral Belgium in order to reach Paris, forcing Britain to declare war with Germany (due to the Treaty of London (1839) whereby Britain agreed to defend Belgium in the event of invasion). By the 4th August 1914 Britain and much of Europe were pulled into a war which would last 1,566 days, cost 8,528,831 lives and 28,938,073 casualties or missing on both sides.

First Name:  H 

Surname:  WHEATON

Rank:  Private 

Service Number:  43281 

 

Gallantry Awards: 

Military Medal

 

This Level 3 Gallantry Medal was established during the First World War on the 25th March 1916 and introduced in the London Gazette issue 29535, (back dated to 1914) to personnel of the British Army and other services, and personnel of Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank. It was the other ranks' equivalent to the Military Cross (M.C.), (which was awarded to Commissioned Officers and, rarely, to Warrant Officers, who could also be awarded the M.M.).

 

The military decoration was awarded to H Wheaton for acts of gallantry and devotion to duty under fire or for individual or associated acts of bravery which were insufficient to merit the Distinguished Conduct Medal.

 

Conferment of the medal was announced in the London Gazette and H Wheaton earned the right to add the letters M.M. to his name. 

Gazette Info:  Gazette Issue 30364. M.M. His Majesty the King has been graciously pleased to award the Military Medal for bravery in the Field. 

Gazette Date:  30/10/1917 

 

Victory Medal

 

Given the information we have available it is likely that H Wheaton was entitled to the Victory medal, also called the Inter Allied Victory Medal. This medal was awarded to all who received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and, with certain exceptions, to those who received the British War Medal. It was never awarded alone. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.

 

Eligibility for this award consisted of having been mobilised, fighting, having served in any of the theatres of operations, or at sea, between midnight 4th/5th August, 1914, and midnight, 11th/12th November, 1918. Women who served in any of the various military organisations in a theatre of operations were also eligible.

 

Campaign

British War Medal

 

From the information available to us, it is very possible that H WHEATON was entitled to the British War Medal for service in World War One. This British Empire campaign medal was issued for services between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918.

 

The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period

 

Entry in the London Gazette Publication Date 30th October 1917 Supplement 30364 Page 11345 reads

43281 Pte. H, WHEATON North'n R. (St Ives).

 

The section was for the award of the Military Cross

PHILLIP WHEATON 1863 - 1948

Much of the information about Philip and Emma was told to us mainly by Kenneth and Gladys SLACK, and also the late Mrs Min FIELD.  We are very grateful to them for all their help and interest.

       

Phillip (or Philip) WHEATON was born in Somersham, Huntingdonshire on the 15th May 1863.  He was William and Ann's ninth child, and sixth son, although one son and two daughters had died before Philip was born.  When Philip's father registered the birth he gave the registrar the name of John for his new son, although this name had been given to a child born two years previously.  This mistake caused Philip problems later in his life when he applied for a pension!

 

William and Ann were not all that prompt in having their children baptised and the new baby was one and a half years old when he was given the correct name of Philip in the church of St John the Baptist in Somersham on the 11th December 1864. 

 

In 1861 the WHEATON family were living in Main Street South Side in Somersham, but by 1871 had moved to Squire Lane (now Parkhall Road).  Philip was already at work at the age of eight,  engaged in "Field Work" and by 1881 he was lodging at the Woolvey Farm in Warboys where he was a Farm Servant.

 

Woolvey Farm is just over the hill from the village of Warboys itself where Emma HYDE lived with her family in the High Street.  Perhaps the couple had met whilst walking in the fields between the village and Woolvey Farm.  However, before they married, it is probable that in 1884 Philip had either moved to Enfield in Middlesex, or was staying there with a cousin, another Philip, son of Robert and Margaret (née PARKER) WHEATON. Nevertheless, "our" Philip obviously returned to Warboys because on the 29th July 1884 Philip and Emma HYDE were married in the church of St Mary Magdalene in Warboys, Huntingdonshire with Emma's sister Annie and Annie's future husband, John LAWRENCE as witnesses.

 

At this time Philip was still working as a Farm, or Agricultural Labourer and the couple were living in Warboys where a few months after their marriage their first child was born prematurely, living for only half an hour.  In 1887 a daughter, Florence was born, and two years later, a son Ernest.  It must have been about this time that Philip decided that farm work in Warboys was not going to make his fortune so he walked to London to see if he could find work there.  It would seem that Emma and the children must have followed soon after for the baby, Ernest, died at twenty-one months of congestion of the lungs and acute bronchitis at Burrard Road, Hampstead, Middlesex in January 1891. 

 

Philip's  brother Thomas, and his wife's future brother-in-law, John LAWRENCE may have accompanied him to London because in April 1891 Philip, Emma and their daughter, Florence, were still at 38 Burrard Road, and also living in the same property were Thomas and his wife and family, and John LAWRENCE, all from Warboys.  Philip did not stay long in Hampstead, however, as by the August of the same year, when daughter Priscilla was born, the family had moved to 20 Protheroe Road, Fulham, to be followed by yet another move by 1893 when at the time of the birth of Ernest they were at 8 Rylston Terrace, still in Fulham. Again, they did not stay long at that address for in 1895 the family were as 23 Lizban Street for the birth of another daughter, Ada (known as "Bob").

 

Lizban Road was in Blackheath, Kent, where they had moved with "Aunty Ginny and Bob" so the family were gradually moving out of London, and they moved even further when Philip found out that the building of houses had begun in Whitehall Road in Grays, in Essex for he was able to obtain the first plot.  In 1897, whilst they were waiting for the Whitehall house to be built they lived at 25 Maple Road where another daughter, Minnie, was born.  

 

It was at this address, ten years later, that Emma had her last children.  During her pregnancy Emma had a miscarriage but she was told that a baby remained.  There were, however, two babies who were born two months early on the evening of the 13 January 1907.  Both were not very strong and Frank died two days later.  Philip and Emma thought there was something wrong with their other baby, William Alphonso, and held the baby up to lights and lanterns to test his sight before they found he had been born blind.  It was thought he would not survive but Emma carried him around in her apron and a year later he was strong enough to have an eye removed.  William grew up to play the piano and to have a beautiful voice.

 

 Life must have been very hard for Emma, for besides having to bring up a blind baby, their first born daughter, Florence, was backward.  Emma would not let her go to school, and instead looked after her, and taught her at home.  And, as well as looking after her growing family Emma was also a Dressmaker, advertising in local Directories for many years.  Her youngest daughter, Min, can remember helping pick up the pins, putting them in a pin cushion, threading needles and whipping seams as her mother worked.  Emma used to make Min's clothes.  Annie (née HYDE) LAWRENCE worked in a factory in Kettering and used to provide the tweed material.  Min could remember a fawn light summer-weight coat with a mock ocelot collar and cloche hat.  Emma was very strong willed and ambitious.  She was nervous of noises, and her husband called her a "messer".  Emma used to take Min to Kettering, together with her own mother, Rebecca (née MARSHALL) HYDE, to see other members of the family.  There they met Uncle Jack HYDE and George "with the apples".  Emma also used to take the family to the fair, also with Gran-Becky who wore a black bonnet decorated with violets.  Gran-Becky was also there at Christmas time when the meat was carved on the table.  Min's memories of the home in Grays included a kitchen range, and a leather sofa with buttons.

 

Whilst living at Whitehall Road, Emma saw that land was for sale in Rectory Road.  Two men were selling 1½ acres so she sent her daughter, Min, to the Globe Works where Philip was working and when he returned they went to the agents, Pearson and Sons in Orsett Road, Grays for the land, and to the Co-op Building Society for a loan!

 

Although the plans were properly drawn up, it was Philip who designed the bungalow that was to be built on the land at 229 Rectory Road.  In addition he was his own bricklayer and carpenter, collecting the timber from a yard in Barking where the merchant would provide the wood for the window frames and doors according to the information on the plan.  Philip pebble-dashed the outside of the bungalow with the help of Min.  When the chimney was finished off they flew the Union Jack and called the bungalow Colne Villa, probably to bring back memories of life in Huntingdonshire.

 

The garden had to be productive and it was planted with peas (again with Min's help).  There was a stall in the field from which they sold their produce while Philip, accompanied by Bill (William), would take the vegetables he grew to market in baskets on a Coster Cart drawn by a spirited pony called Molly.  Previously Philip had visited Romford Market with a rope and bought the Dartmoor pony intending to lead it home.  However, the rope broke, so he had to ride her instead.

 

Philip was a hard worker all his life.  He was a very patient and contented man, a "sober sides" and a good provider.  When in Grays, Essex he worked at the Globe Works as a stationary engine driver for £2. 10s. 0d a week.  When he went to work he used to take a pint jug of beer, bread and cheese and a pickled onion.

 

On Sundays he used to go out with his pals and Emma used to have "a pleasant Sunday afternoon" at a meeting for Mothers and Children although on all but one occasion she was at home, where Philip expected her to be, on his return.  Sometimes, after being out with his friends, Philip would come home rather merry, but one day he listened to the Salvation Army and from that Sunday he gave up drink until he gave up work.  Something he suffered from for some time was digestive problems, but found a cure when he eventually had his one remaining tooth out!

 

Philip and Emma's first grandson, Eric William, was born in 1911 to Ernest and Beatrice JACKSON.  Ernest was "missing presumed dead" in the Battle of the Somme, six months after marrying Beatrice at St Mark's Church at Victoria Dock, West Ham, Essex.  Although brought up by his mother and her family, Eric WHEATON, the son of Ernest, knew that Philip and Emma were his grandparents, and it was whilst they were at Rectory Road that he went to see them.  They were very proud of him, and glad that he had visited them.

 

After the war Priscilla, Minnie and "Bob" all married leaving Florence and William at home with their parents.  During the Second World War Philip, Emma, Florence and William went to stay in Warboys with their relatives, the BLACKMANs and the HYDEs.  When they returned to Grays they lived at 2 Roy Walk, a "prefab" on the Blackshots Estate, Little Thurrock.  It was at this address that Philip died in November 1948, and then Emma, two years later in December 1950.

Information from Min FIELD

"Mum gave Philip a medal at the time Ernest was killed.  It was enamel in the shape of a miniature iron cross with a "W" in the centre" - which is what my notes say.  However, it is now too late to ask Min to explain more fully.

 

We do have a miniature iron cross with a "W" in the centre which was given to us by Philip FIELD, so we assume this is the same item.  Philip FIELD wrote that his mother gave him the medal about 1986 and told him that her mother received it from the Army shortly after Ernest was killed in 1916.  "However, from the date on the medal being 1914 this cannot be true as a supposedly "death" medal.  I think that it is probably a German miniature (or dress) Iron Cross, given to someone ....." (rest of letter now lost!)

 

We did show the "medal" to an expert who thought that perhaps it belonged to a German soldier and had been acquired by someone on the battle field, and then, because it had the initial "W" in the centre, it was given to Ernest.  Being found among his belongings the army then returned it to Emma.  We shall never know!
