Updated 12th January 2016

Generation No. 1

 

1.  Robert WHITTLESEE or1 WHITTLESEY was born Abt. 16371, and died Unknown.  He married Bridget UNKNOWN wife of Robert WHITTLESEY.  She was born Abt. 16421, and died Unknown.

 

Notes for Robert WHITTLESEE or WHITTLESEY:

There was a Robert WHITTLESEY burial on the 10th October 1820 at St John the Baptist, Woodhurst, Huntingdonshire.  He was a husband and a Labourer (findmypast web site)

 

In Colne, Huntingdonshire a William WHITTLESEY was Churchwarden in 1671-1672, a Richard WHITTLESEY was Churchwarden in 1674-1675 and a Robert WHITTLESEY in 1680-1681.  Were these from the previous generation to this Robert?

 

THE WHITTLESEYS

We have collected much information about people with the name WHITTLESEY, but at present the family groups are very isolated. Our earliest reference is to the marriage of a John WHYRRLESEY to Elizabeth AMBROSE in Bluntisham on the 22nd June 1553. Despite the fact that we have many details for our own WHITTLESEY family in Woodhurst, and for a considerable number of WHITTLESEYs in Bluntisham, and more particularly in Colne, there are several extremely long gaps between the different family groups.  At the same time, we have still not been able to trace the baptism of our earliest Robert.  Therefore, we have not made the links which would move our line further back in time.

 

After the early marriage mentioned above, nearly a century later, in 1641 seven WHITELESAYEs are listed on the Protestation Return.  Greffen, John, Richerd, Symore and two Williams in Colne, and a Roberd in Bluntisham and Earith.  At this time one of the Williams had the office of Constable.

 

In 1664 seven members of the WHITTLESEY family are once more listed in Colne, this time  in the Hearth Tax return.  John and Robert were shown with two hearths each, while Richard, Griffin, another John, Ann (a widow) and Simon all had one.  Two years later only three WHITTLESEYs were listed, John with two hearths and Robert and another John with one.  Three members of this particular family group were Churchwardens in the last quarter of the eighteenth century, William from May 1671-1672, Richard from May 1674 to 1675 and Robert from May 1680 to 1681.  We have been able to create families for several of the names listed, but we still have to link marriages with particular individuals to take us forward another generation.

 

There was a Robert in Woodhurst whose wife Sarah was buried there in 1691.  It appears that he could have married again in 1717 as a widower to a Sarah CHADWICK who was herself a widow.  If this is the same Robert his marriage may have only lasted three years as a Robert WHITTLESEY was buried in Woodhurst in 1720.  Then there was a Robert who married an Ann CHAMBERTON in Bluntisham in 1727.  Could this be a first marriage for our earliest Robert, with the Robert mentioned previously being his father?  There is no Robert WHITTLESEY/Bridget marriage on the Huntingdon Index so where did this Robert marry?

 

Use of the name Robert continues through the generations with a Robert WHITTLESEY marrying Catherine ANGEL in 1729.  This couple had eight children, of whom six probably survived into adulthood, although at present marriages have been found for only three of them.  Their youngest daughter, Elizabeth, was the one to marry William WHEATON in 1761. The Robert WHITTLESEY,  who was the father of "our" Elizabeth,  died  in 1765 and the details in his Will suggest that by that time he had become a relatively wealthy man. With the property he left to his family he was surely one of the more important men in the village of Woodhurst.

 

We are most interested in finding more information about Robert’s other children.  He left £5 to his grandson Robert.  This Robert must have been born before 1765 to be mentioned in the Will, but who was his father?  We have the marriage for Robert’s son William.  He married Mary PEAKES in 1760.  We think William and his wife could have become involved with the Bluntisham Baptist Church.  If so, William, then earning his living as a bricklayer in Somersham, became a member in December 1786.  His wife, Mary’s membership was dated the 9th May 1787, and she was baptised on the 1st June 1791.  At that time she was acting as chapel cleaner and caretaker and they could have been living in Bluntisham. On the 16th October 1810 there was a burial of a Mary WHITTLESEY, wife of William, a labourer.  Was this the same Mary?  Also in the Bluntisham Baptist registers there is a reference both to a John WHITTLESEY of Pidley, a labourer, who joined the church on the 13th July 1788 but left to go to Needingworth Church in February 1790, and to a Robert.  This last reference is in connection with the burial on the 15th November 1824 of Elizabeth WHITTLESEY, the "wife of Robert".  Could these three, William, John and Robert, be the brothers of "our" Elizabeth?

 

We do have information, from both America and Australia, which would suggest that descendants of this family were living in March in the early years of the nineteenth century.  In 1813 a William WHITTLESEY, married an Elizabeth WHEATEN.  This William earned his living as a bricklayer in March, as did many other men with the same name who could perhaps also be members of this same WHITTLESEY family.  We are particularly interested in this family because, if we are unable to find the link between WHEATONs in America, and our own, we may be able to claim a relationship through the WHITTLESEYs instead!

Notes for William WHEATLEY or WHEATON:

Addresses

1758        Pidley-cum-Fenton, Huntingdonshire

 

1754  Will, Thomas WHEATON left property to his son William WHEATON

 

WILLIAM WHEATON 1732 - 1780

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

1821/1823

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

WILLIAM WHEATON 1762 - 1836

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

William WHEATON   House                     @         £  2.   0s.  0d

Orchard (late Bright)                               @                 14s.  0d

Allotment on the Lawns                          @         £  3. 13s.  6d

New Inclosure of Mr Johnson                 @         £21.   6s.  0d

New Inclosure of late Mr Johnson          @         £15. 10s.  4d

                       

                                                                             £43.   3s.10d.

                                                                          To pay 10s 9½d.

So it would seem that William WHEATON had quite a substantial land holding, both freehold and rented.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

WILLIAM WHEATON 1762 - 1836

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

December 1837

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

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

Notes for Mary WHEATON:

Addresses

1841        34 New Square, St Andrew the Less, Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire

                Living with them was Henry POWELL (16) Butcher's Apprentice

                (HO10785; Book: 12; Enumeration District: 7; Folio: 11; Page: 16)

1851        1 Fair Street, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire Age 47 (HO107/1760 folio 701 pg 4)

                Living with them was a Samuel POWELL (21) Unmarried a Book Binder born London,

                Middlesex.  He is described as "son".

                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.

1861        Village Street, Swaffham Bulbeck, Cambridgeshire Age 56 (RG9/1033 folio 81 pg 25)

1881        High Street, Haslingfield, Chesterton, Cambridgeshire Age 80 (RG11/1662 folio 78 pg 9)

 

DESCENDANTS

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

 

MARRIAGE

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

 

REASONS WHY WE THINK THIS MARY WHEATON MARRIED JONATHAN GUNTON on the

15 May 1828 at St Mary the Great, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Quarter Sessions Books

15th January 1822

Philip WHEATON the elder &

Philip WHEATON the younger

 

Committed September 1821 on suspicion of sheep stealing

 

CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS

23rd March 1822

 

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

 

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

- Prosecution withdrawn.

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Update to the above.

A marriage has been now found for Frederick James WHEATON, as Frederick JAMES

Deaths have been found for Thomas James and Drusilla in America

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

 

Information from Roland ASPINALL 9.11.1993

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

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

                Huntingdonshire.  Is this our man? 

 

                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. 

 

               On ancestry there was just the one census return for a Robert HIDE and one in 1891 for a

               Robert HYDE.

 

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

                1852 and 1883.

 

                So, no clues anywhere!

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

Information from Diana SUTOR 6/8/2009

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

Does this apply to this John? The actual image of the passenger list is practically impossible to read.  My brother John TERRY has worked at enhancing the page and believes that nos 76 and 77 are definitely a John and Ann and that their surname ends in "...ATON".

However, there is no Ann WHEATON on the Mississippi in the index

But...when doing a search on WHEATON and Mississippi it shows that John WHEATON and June WHEATON Age 65 were passengers.  We believe, therefore, that this could be the right John, and that his wife has been wrongly indexed.  More research required. It has now been confirmed by Barbara WHEATON 2/5/2013 that this is the right couple

REASONS FOR INCLUSION OF JOHN WHEATON IN THIS FAMILY

There were three families of WHEATONs in the counties of Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire.  It is not a common name and it seemed more than likely that all three were connected - if only we could find the connections!  We have been searching for links since 1983.

 

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

 

However,

A John WHEATON was a witness to the marriage of Robert's eldest daughter

John WHEATON, the son of the John WHEATON for whom these notes are being written, went to County Huron, Ohio in 1840 followed by his father in 1843. 

Robert WHEATON had a son Daniel who in 1851 (after the death of his father) went to America, settling in Norwalk, County Huron, Ohio.

John WHEATON, the son of the John WHEATON for whom these notes are being written, married a Sarah CLARKE. After her first husband's death Sarah married a Joseph RIDER/RYDER and became the Housekeeper to Daniel WHEATON in Norwalk, County Huron, Ohio. 

In Daniel's original Will a legacy was left to Sarah Clarke Wheaton RIDER.  However she died before Daniel so a codicil changed the Will to include a bequest to her daughter.

One of Daniel's sons was called Leonard, and a Leonard WHEATON was a witness at the marriage of one of Sarah Clarke Wheaton RIDER's children

And on the 2nd February 2010, through Carol HOLLY who had written to Barbara WHEATON (married to a descendant of this John), we received details of Sarah Clark Wheaton RIDER's obituary where it describes her as the cousin of Daniel WHEATON.

 

Some clarifications....

After Robert WHEATON's first two children were christened in a Church of England we believe that he became an important supporter of the Baptist Church in Bluntisham so the rest of his children were not christened in the Parish Church.

This John died between 1843 and 1850 so it could be that he had died before Robert wrote his Will which explains why he was not included.

Daniel was actually the Uncle of the John who married Sarah CLARKE and so she would have been his niece by marriage.  However, Daniel was born in 1814 and John in 1815 so they probably considered themselves cousins and described themselves as such to others which was why "cousin" was the relationship used in Sarah's obituary.

 

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

 

In 2012 the DNA results for Dennis Ian WHEATON indicated that he was not a WHEATON but a WETTON from Staffordshire.

In 2013 the DNA results for one of John WHEATON's descendants indicated that he was not a WHEATON, but a WETTON from Staffordshire!

So, the belief that this John belonged on Den's family tree has been proved.

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

The only John LEE deaths in Huntingdonshire between 1851 and 1861 were:

John LEE died March quarter 1861 Caxton District and

John LEE died September quarter 1861 Thrapston District.

 

Neither seems to be the right District, whilst the second one appears to be too late.

Two of John's sons went to America in November 1851; what if John followed them and so his wife then considered herself to be a widow?

On the other hand there is a John LEE death in the St Ives District, Huntingdonshire in the December quarter of 1878; he was aged 74 so born about 1804.

More research required!

DANIEL WHEATON DEAD

An Old Residence, Well-Known in Huron County, Gone

 

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

 

Daniel E WHEATON was born in Huntingdonshire, England in 1813.  He came to America in 1851 and almost directly to Norwalk, where he resided and carried on the meat business for three years.  At the end of that time he bought the farm on the old State Road where he has lived ever since and where he has in days gone by dispensed the happy and most cordial entertainment peculiar to the English people.

He was married to Ann MEHEW, who died 20 years ago. Ten children were born to them, five of whom are living.

Mr WHEATON in politics was a staunch democrat, although he has taken no active interest in political for some years.

His home was the greatest spot on earth to him and there he was wont to gather his children and grandchildren about him for happy family reunions.

During his life Mr WHEATON accumulated a good amount of this world's goods and as a consequence left a large estate.  In his death Huron County has last another of its older citizens and good men.

 

 

Extract from "The Firelands Pioneer - Norwalk, its men, women and girls"

 

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

 

From Commemorative Biographical Records

 

Among the leading business men of Norwalk none holds higher rank than this well-known gentleman, who is a son of Robert and Catherine (White) WHEATON.

Robert WHEATON, who was one of four brothers-Philip, William, John and Robert- was born in 1784, in Huntingdonshire, England, near Cambridge, and was a successful butcher and farmer, keeping four teams constantly at work.  He died in 1848, the mother passing away at the age of eighty years.

Daniel WHEATON was born the second Monday of January, 1814, in Huntingdon, England, the second youngest of his father’s family, and is the only one now living.  He grew to manhood in his native land, there following the butcher business as well as agricultural pursuits.  He was united in marriage, March 25, 1835, with Miss Ann MEHEW, who was born in 1816, also in Huntingdon, England.  In November 1851, they came to America, first locating in Monroeville, Ohio, and three months later moving to Norwalk, where they resided for three years.  He followed his trade for some time after settling here, then purchased a farm, but continued the butcher business until about the year 1863, when his sons took entire charge.  Since then the father has managed the farm; formerly he owned ninety-two acres, but now has eighty-eight acres.

 

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

Notes for John Henry STEARMAN:

Addresses

1871        30 Bedford Street, Southwark, Surrey (marriage)

1881        12 Scarsdale Road, St George, Camberwell, Surrey as Henry STEARMAN

                The problem is that Harriet is shown as being born in 1848. However as her husband is

                shown as being born in 1849 it is quite likely that she made herself younger than she really

                was. As there is a little doubt about if this is the correct marriage etc I have not added a chart,

                but they had the following children: Harry (9) Scholar, Charles (7) Scholar and James (1), all

                born in Camberwell, Surrey.

1891        78 Hornby Road, Camberwell, Surrey (possible)

                Shown as being STEDMAN on this Census, but definitely the same family.

1901        62 Hornby Road, Camberwell, Surrey (possible)
