William John's children Cyril, Victor and Eveline, ended up living at 8 Dorset Place in 1911. Same house as John STANTON (William's uncle) had lived 30 yrs earlier. Perhaps the house was owned and passed within the family.

Interestingly William John's marriage to a "Lovell" appears to indicate connections between the STANTON and LOVELL families. On 1st December 1817 Jacob is listed as a witness in the marriage of John LUCASS of Radipole and Lane LOVEL in Fleet parish.

It appears that her brother John LOVELL married Jane DURRENT in 1815 though his name is spelt LOVELL

Marriage record for 1823 in St Helier Jersey has a Joseph BEATON marrying a Mary KINGWILL: "Joseph BEATON of West Camel in county of Somerset, and Mary KINGWILL of Stoke Under Ham same county were married on the 12th day of October 1823". There is no other Joseph BEATON of around the right age brought up in any search for Jersey records. So I believe this to be the right Joseph BEATON.

Joseph's marriage record shows he was "from" West Camel, Somerset". West Camel has a number of references to a BEATON family:

British History Online has the following:
The sale of the former Muchelney manors by Lord Bruce in 1709 marked the beginning of the dispersal of the ancient holdings in the parish. West Camel farm, with over 450 a., was sold in 1709, and another copyhold farm of over 100 a. to John Chalcroft in 1710. (fn. 138) The second farm was formed from four smaller units, mostly in the north of the parish, and passed from John Chalcroft in 1763 to his nephew, John Beaton. The Beatons still retained the property at least until 1801, but Henry Beaton's holding in 1839 was only some 59 a. (fn. 139) Other small farms, such as that of George Vincent, of 50 a., one fifth arable, also emerged during the 18th century. (fn. 140)
In 1086 there was a mill at West Camel worth 10s. (fn. 143) It belonged to Muchelney abbey, who still owned it in 1305. (fn. 144) Robert the miller occurs in 1327, (fn. 145) and in 1437 the miller was accused of demanding excessive toll. (fn. 146) This mill may be identified with Old Mill or Higher Mill, on the river Cam, north of the church. By 1825 it belonged to the Way family, and as Way's Mill it occurs in 1863. It was then owned by the Feaver family, (fn. 147) but between 1883 and 1889 passed to the Mildmays. (fn. 148) It seems to have continued in use as a mill until soon after 1927. (fn. 149) A second mill, called New Mill in 1825, stood on the north bank of the Cam west of Frog Lane. (fn. 150) Its usual name was Lower Mill and was also known as Beaton's Mill. The Beaton family held it until 1843. (fn. 151) It seems to have ceased production between 1875 and 1883. (fn. 152) There may have been a mill on the estate at Little Marston, though the only indication is a field called 'Mullehay' in 1392. (fn. 153)
A P Baggs, R J E Bush and Margaret Tomlinson, 'Parishes: West Camel', in A History of the County of Somerset: Volume 3, ed. R W Dunning (London, 1974), pp. 71-81. British History Online

The London Gazette from 1822 has a record of a Henry BEATON selling a mill in West Camel due to bankruptcy.
"WEST CAMEL, SOMERSET. To be sold by auction, by Percy and Son, (by order of the Assignees of Henry Beaton, a Bankrupt), ... A messuage or dwelling-house and malt-house, a newly erected water grist mill, barn, stable and outbuildings,,,,",+West+Camel,+Somerset&source=bl&ots=BFcbktr4Eh&sig=DIffpMSQCHVGVaT8JQfPomYRObo&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwizgP6nsZjSAhWpBcAKHSzEBigQ6AEIRzAI#v=onepage&q=Beaton's%20Mill%2C%20West%20Camel%2C%20Somerset&f=false

Interesting that this was just prior to Joseph's wedding. Perhaps he moved out to Jersey at this time. However, the citation above does mention that the mill stayed in the BEATON family until 1843.

1841 census indicates an "E" in the column for "Where born" which suggests "England". 
BEATON, Joseph (I2019)
105 02/17
Marriage record for 1823 in St Helier Jersey has a Joseph BEATON marrying a Mary KINGWILL: "Joseph BEATON of West Camel in county of Somerset, and Mary KINGWILL of Stoke Under Ham same county were married on the 12th day of October 1823". There is no other Joseph BEATON of around the right age brought up in any search for Jersey records. So I believe this to be the right Joseph BEATON.

Ancestry has records for three possible Mary KINGWILL's. All born about the right time in either Martock, Odcombe or Shepton Beauchamp. Each of these villages surround Stoke Under Ham (or Stoke Sub Hamdon as it is known).
Mary KINGWILL born to Rebecca and George KINGWILL and baptised 1791 in Martock

Mary KINGWILL born to Ann KINGWELL and baptised June 25th 1797 in Odcombe "was baptised aged 3 years"

Mary KINGWILL born to Mary and Paul KINGWILL and baptised (along with her sister Martha) 1796 in Shepton Beauchamp
This Mary had two older siblings at this time - Elizabeth 1791 and Thomas 1793, both baptised in Martock.

Judging by the age (46) given for her on the 1841 census we should expect her to have been born 1795-6 which would suggest it more likely she was either of the latter two. Though working out it would depend how long after their birth these girls were baptised. The record states that Mary from Odcombe was baptised aged 3 years, which puts her birth around between June-1793 to June-1794. There is also a record of a Mary KINGWILL (no age given) burial in 1801 at Odcombe.
So at present the third Mary KINGWILL would seem the more likely candidate. Shepton Beauchamp is a little further away from Stoke Sub Ham than the other two Mary's (only 1km or so). But the fact she has two siblings baptised in Martock, somewhat discounts this minor discrepancy.

An aside, a Martha KINGWILL (spinster) of Shepton Beauchamp, married William BAKER of South Petherton (a village in between Shepton Beauchamp and Stoke Sub Hamdon) 31st July 1825. This is the only Martha KINGWILL (with KINGWILL being maiden name) found anywhere on Ancestry. The witnesses were John MARKS and Jacob Stower?. Interesting because the 1871 census has a William BAKER (74) (born 1797; North Perrot, Somerset) living with his brother-in-law Israel MARKS (83). Along with Elizabeth MARKS (20) and Israel Willliam WHITE (17), living at West Coker, Somerset (4km East of South Petherton). This Israel MARKS married a Sarah BAKER in West Coker in 1816.

1841 census indicates an "E" in the column for "Where born" which suggests "England".

1861 census (RG 9; Piece: 1021; Folio: 16; Page: 26; GSU roll: 542738) has a Mary BEETON bc1796 living with an Elizabeth GRAY bc1800 in Great Wilbraham, Cambs. (Both women are recroded as born there too). Both are widows and on poor relief. Interesting because John G BEATON has a nephew "Robert GRAY" b Dorset, living with him in 1881 census. Possibly just coincidence. Or is John's mother still alive and now living here with a similar aged (albeit distant) relative? Perhaps she was from Cambs originally?
1851 census has Mary BEETON married to a Thomas BEETON so perhaps not..

Occupation given in 1901 as Workman, Rolling Mill, Woolwich Archal. Possible this should read Woolwich Arsenal? There was a rolling mill at the Woolwich Arsenal, presumably for rolling steel for guns? The mill was demolished some time between 1994 and 2003 as the site became redeveloped...

I believe I noticed recently someone was researching the name LOVELL.

I have just discovered that my Great Grandmother was Martha Lovell born 1852 in Wyke Regis and her father was William John Lovell, William born in 1826 was one of ten children and lived in Wyke Regis he had 3 brothers called Richard, Charles and John, and six sisters called Edith, Mary, Lydia, Fanny, Ellen and Emma.
William married Tabitha Whitby in 1849 and they had two children, William and my gt grandmother Martha, sadly Tabitha died in November 1852, William then re married someone called Mary? and they had another daughter Kate. Kate married William Stanton of Wyke Regis

Williams father was also call William and was born in Langton in 1801 and was married to Edith?
I would love to hear from anyone researching any of the above people.

Dear Mark

I hope you'll find what I've done helpful. Burke's is wrong re his first wife's name, but I've spelled that out in my tree. His last wife's will refers to the above's son John as her son, but I think as she married the above John in 1666 and was making her will in 1717 after 50 yrs in the family she probably did not think of him as a stepson. I have the will for John died 1724, which I think must be one of yours.


Tree on GR:

"Marriage Allegations in the Registry of the Vicar General of the Archbishop of Canterbury 15/2/1666 John Tregonwell of Anderson Co Dorset, widower, about 35, & Mrs Mary Davis, of St Clement Danes, widow, about 22, at Chelsea Middlesex In 1663 he was appointed one of the Comissioners for Dorset to collect a subsidy for Charles II Burke's Landed Gentry suggests that he had only the one child, his son, by his marriage to Lewes Beaumont. The estate at Anderson passed through this son and his issue, and includes Lewis Dimoke Grosvenor Tregonwell who in the C18th is credited with founding the seaside resort of Bournemouth, and possibly also being engaged in smuggling. Of the origin of the family, Burkes states: "This family derives its surname front its ancient seat, Tregonwell , in Cornwall . Pollen , in his description of Cornishmen and manners, mentions the Tregonwells as of Bellarmine , and records that "they builded many places, and had many lands and manors before the Norman Conquest." Towards the close of the fifteenth century" Anderson Manor was requisiitoned during WWII by Acting Admiral Louis Mountbatten and Combined Operations and became the base of No 62 Commando."

From Ruth Jenkins:

Born ABT 1514, son of George Hastings, first Earl of Huntingdon, by his wife, Anne Stafford, sister of the Duke of Buckingham and reputed the be the Mistress of King Henry VIII or his friend Sir William Compton. Francis Hastings was summoned to Parliament as Lord Hastings on 3 Nov 1529, the same day his father was created Earl of Huntingdon. The following year he was appointed steward of two abbeys. He was made a Knight of the Bath in 1533 and succeeded his father to the earldom on 24 Mar 1545. At the coronation of Edward VI, he carried St. Edward's staff and played a prominent part in the jousting which followed. He backed Northumberland against the Lord Protector Somerset in the government of the boy king and conducted Somerset to the Tower on 13 Oct 1549, the same day he was created a Knight of the Garter. He served as lieutenant general and chief captain in the army and fleet that was engaged in the struggle for Boulogne, in which service he complained bitterly about the lack of equipment and money. In 1550, Northumberland now in full control, he was made a member of the Privy Council. In 1552 he accompanied Edward VI on his progress and the following year attended Northumberland as he visited the north, when the latter urged the King to give Huntingdon the estates in Leicestershire forfeited by John Beaumont. The King did so and Huntingdon gave the manor of Grace Dieu to Beaumont's widow. On May 21, 1553, Huntingdon's son and heir, Henry, married Northumberland's daughter Catherine, the same day as Northumberland's son, Lord Guildford Dudley, married Lady Jane Grey. Huntingdon signed the document naming Lady Jane Grey as heir to the throne and accompanied Northumberland to Cambridge where she was proclaimed. He was seized by forces loyal to Queen Mary and taken to the Tower. He was released the following Jan and sent in pursuit of Lady Jane Grey's father, the Duke of Suffolk, who had risen in revolt. He accompanied Suffolk to the Tower and was present at the execution of Sir Thomas Wyatt there. Having married the niece of Reginald, Cardinal Pole, whom Queen Mary had made Archbishop of Canterbury, he did not suffer under the Queens attempts to restore Catholicism, but was undoubtedly Protestant at heart. Queen Elizabeth appointed him master of the hart-hounds after her succession. In 1583, his youngest daughter, Mary, received a formal proposal of marriage from Ivan IV "the Terrible," Czar of Russia, presented at Court by his Ambassador. She declined the offer.

From Ruth Jenkins:

Eldest son of Sir Richard Pole and Margaret Plantagenet, Countess of Salisbury. Knighted by Henry VIII in 1513 during Henry?s French campaign. Created Baron Montague, much of the lands originally held by the Neville family were conferred on him (for a fee). He was referred to as Lord Montague in official documents and was a witness to the great peace Treaty of London in 1518. He was a member of the royal household and was allowed his own livery. In 1520, he attended Henry VIII at the Field of the Cloth of Gold. He was one of the peers who convicted Anne Boleyn. As a Roman Catholic, Pole did not approve of Henry?s destroying Church property and the anti-Catholic feeling in England. Henry was fully aware of Montagu?s feelings, and through his betrayal by his brother Geoffrey Pole, the King obtained the evidence he needed to have Montagu arrested in put into the Tower. Late in Nov 1539 Montague and Henry Courtenay, Marquis of Exeter were tried before Lord Chancellor Audley, the Lord High Steward, and a jury of peers found them guilty of treason. A week later, on 9 Dec, both lords met their deaths on Tower Hill. Lord Montague, left a son and two daughters. The son may have been attainted with his father and must have died soon after his father for there is no mention of him in official documents. His daughter, Catherine, married Francis, Lord Hastings, later Earl of Huntingdon, and her sister, Winifred, married first a brother of Catherine?s husband and later a member of the Barrington family. The girls were restored to full honours and property at the accession of Queen Mary. His brother Reginald was a Cardinal. His other brother Geoffrey Pole was knighted in 1529 by Henry VIII at York Place. A devout Roman Catholic, he greatly disapproved of Henry VIII?s divorce proceedings from Catalina of Aragon. Although he was appointeed one of the servitors at Anne Boleyn?s coronation, his loyalties were with Princess Mary and the former Queen Catalina. He then visited the Imperial Ambassador Chapuys and assured him that if the Holy Roman Emperor were to invade England to redress the wrong that had been done to Queen Catalina, that the English people would favor him. Unfortunately, his words reached the ears of the King and he was arrested and sent to the Tower on Aug 1538. He lay for two months in prison and, in late Oct, began his interrogation. He was questioned about private conversations and letters sent to and received from Cardinal Pole by himself and other members of the family. Geoffrey was faced with the rack and, knowing that he would inevitably implicate his mother and elder brother, Henry, Lord Montagu, he attempted suicide and seriously injured himself. After long periods of interrogation he broke and supplied the ?evidence? the King required not only against Margaret and Henry but also against Henry Courtenay, Marquis of Exeter, Sir Edward Neville and others. Henry had Montague and Exeter arrested and committed to the Tower on 4 Nov. Geoffrey, tried with his brother and Exeter, entered a plea of guilty and was condemned to death but was pardoned as a result of his betrayal. Cromwell informed the French Ambassador that he was hopeful of learning more from him. On representation from his wife, Geoffrey received a pardon for reason that he was so ill that he was already as good as dead. In 1540, a few weeks after his mother?s death, he left his family behind and fled to Europe, where he remained until the reign of Queen Mary. He had travelled to Rome when he left England and thrown himself at the feet of his brother, the Cardinal. He proclaimed himself unworthy to be considered his brother as he had caused another brother?s death. Reginald obtained his absolution from the Pope and sent him to the Bishop of Liege in Flanders. He returned to England and died in 1558 a few days before Reginald and was buried at Stoughton. He had married Constance, the elder of two daughter and heirs of Sir John Pakenham. They had five sons and six daughters of whom two married and one daughter became a nun.

Mr. Tregonwell , who was sheriff of Dorsetshire in 1604 , 1615 , and 1627 , purchased the estate of Anderson , and erecting the mansion house in 1622 , went to reside there on the marriage of his elder son. He was compelled under the commonwealth to redeem his estate, by paying a composition of £3725. for deserting the parliament and dwelling in the king's quarters. During the civil war himself and his elder son remained neuter, but his other son, Thomas , was in arms for the king. Upon that son he settled Anderson and the Abbs Court estate in 1625 . He died in 1639 , when Milton Abbey passed to his heir, John Tregonwell , esq. and his second son became the founder of the Anderton branch of the family which lasted into the nineteenth century Journal of the House of Commons 6/8/1646 Ordinance to clear Mr. Tregonwell of his Delinquency.

Comments from Lesley Ann Martin (Albert's grandaughter):
"I didn't know that Grandad stayed in London while his mother and children went back to Bristol. Is that the reason the family didn't like him? What do you think it was like for a 16y/o to stay in London on his own. Do you know what he did and where he lived? I know he was something to do with Goldsmiths College. He went into the Royal Engineers and the Observers Corps. He was an accountant in Maidstone. After my grandmother died he lived with my mother and father. He died in 1971 of cancer. He suffered badly, they removed his ear and grafted skin from his shoulder but it didn't do any good, I think he was a guinea pig."

Albert may have felt he had little choice but to leave the family at the same time as his father William did in order to avoid burden of maintenance in fathers stead. It was a condition of local "Guardians" that a child's income be taken before support would be given.

Had a record in db of baptism in Paulton for John Charles of 28 Apr 1822 but no source. Census indicates he was born in c1829 assuming he gave correct age.

Paulton was hit by an outbreak of "Asiatic Cholera" in Sep-Nov 1832 when John, then aged 9, would likely have been living there. The outbreak claimed the lives of 23 men, 23 women and 26 children. A plaque in the graveyard of Paulton church commemerates the event.

On the 1901 census record there is a Jane SHEPPARD living with William and Jane who is listed as "Wifes ?step? Mother". Slightly illegible, and the age appears to be 33 (though could be 93?).
In the 1841 census there is a "Jane DIMOND; bc1826 (out of county); at North Street, Bristol; in the household of Henry MENDHAM". HO107 piece 372 folio 24 page 4

Jane's father was William Dimond, farmer, resident in Wellington (1851 Census shows him as DIAMOND, William,'widower', 37, Ag.Lab., res. Ford Street, Wellington,Som.

Upwey burial records appear to have the burial of a Joseph STANTON "5 Mar 1784; Joseph STANTON; infant".
This being only 2 days after a "Private" baptism, it seems likely that this may have been our Joseph in which case the Joseph found in a later census married to Susannah (with a son, Joseph) may not be the same person. Perhaps a subsequent son was given the same name, or maybe the later Joseph is not related?
I wonder if Joseph married to Susannah (and in the in the record below christening a son -also Joseph) is actually a brother of William - if so this might be a clue to finding where they were from.

Name: Joseph Stanton

Walter is listed in the 1901 census as a Miner - Railway Tunnels. The rail line between Chinley and Hazel Grove goes through a tunnel right under Wybersley Road near the village of High Lane. (It appears that the family moved around alot for Walter's job. The children all appear to have been born near railways or later on near railway tunnels!) The family are listed on the census as living in "Huts" at Wybbeslegh. Interestingly there is a lady 2 years older than Walter, by the name of Harriet (married to a Christopher FORDWIN - a Foreman of Engine Fitters) also living in the Huts, who was also born at Crick in Northamptonshire. I wonder if they were related. Perhaps Harriet was Walter's sister and got him the job here? Walter and Elizabeth have 6 other children listed as well as Florence.

Background on Coat & Doggetts race: from
"One of the most interesting annual events in the present day in connection with the Thames watermen, and perhaps the most popular gala day now which gladdens the heart of the multitudes, next to Derby Day at Epsom and the Oxford and Cambridge boat-race, is the one afforded by Thomas Doggett, comedian, on the 1st of August, to commemorate the accession of the House of Brunswick. "This scene," says Mr. J. T. Smith in his "Book for a Rainy Day," "is sure to be picturesque and cheerful should it be lit up by the glorious sun 'that gems the sea and every land that blooms.' In 1715, the year after George I. came to the throne, Doggett, to quicken the industry and raise a laudable emulation in our young men of the Thames, whereby they not only may acquire a knowledge of the river but a skill in managing the oar with dexterity, gave an orangecoloured coat and silver badge, on which was sculptured the Hanoverian Horse, to the successful candidate of six young watermen just out of their apprenticeship, to be rowed for on the 1st of August, when the current was strongest against them, starting from the 'Old Swan,' London Bridge, to the 'Swan' at Chelsea." On the 1st of August, 1722, the year after Doggett's death, pursuant to the tenor of his will, the prize was first rowed for, and has been given annually ever since.
"They gripe their oars, and every panting breast
Is raised by turns with hope, by turns with fear depressed."

Charles Dibdin was so amused with the sight of the contest for Doggett's prize, that in 1774 he brought out at the Haymarket a ballad opera, entitled The Waterman: or, the First of August, the hero in which, "Tom Tug," sings the wellknown song-
"And did you ne'er hear of a jolly young waterman,
Who at Blackfriars Bridge used for to ply?
He feather'd his oars with such skill and dexterity,
Winning each heart and delighting each eye;"
and another when he has resolved to cast away his cares and be off to sea:-
"Then, farewell, my trim-built wherry,
Oars and coat, and badge, farewell!
Never more at Chelsea ferry
Shall your Thomas take a spell," &c.
However, Tom rowed for Doggett's coat and badge, which he had an eye upon, in order to obtain his love if possible by his prowess. She was seated at the "Swan Inn," Chelsea, and admired the successful candidate before she discovered him to be her suitor Thomas, then "blushed an answer to his wooing tale," and it is to be hoped lived happily with him for ever afterwards.

The old "Swan Inn" at Chelsea, we may add, was swept away about the year 1873 to make room for the Thames Embankment; but the coat and badge is still rowed for, the destination of the race being the Cadogan Pier at Chelsea. The Fishmongers' Company, of which Thomas Doggett was a member, add a guinea to the prize; and besides this there are several other prizes awarded to the different competitors in the race. The second and third prizes are respectively allotted five-eighths and three-eighths of the interest on £260 17s. 3d., formerly £200 South Sea Stock, left in the will of Sir William Jolliffe, the amounts respectively being £4 17s. 9d. and £2 18s. 9d. The prize for the fourth man is £1 11s. 6d., and for the fifth and sixth men each £1 1s., the last three given by the Fishmongers' Company. There are also different sums occasionally given by private individuals to the winner, or to the first, second, and third in the race. The competition is by six young watermen whose apprenticeships have expired the previous year; each being in a boat by himself with short oars or sculls. The bargemaster of the Fishmongers' Company is ordinarily the umpire; and the race always excites much local interest, being one of those many sports in which the English take much pleasure."

Elizabeth's father is named as Samuel BARTLETT on her marriage certificate (to William GOODWIN). On this certificate she is recorded as a widow.

Unclear at present of Elizabeth's ancestry. There is an Elizabeth BARTLETT (bc1842) on the 1851 census with her family (headed by Emmanuel BARTLETT). Unclear whether this is the correct Elizabeth BARTLETT as there appear to have been two born in the same year, both in Lytchett, Dorset, as evidenced by the 1861 census which has "our" Elizabeth living in Farnham in Surrey, but also another Elizabeth BARTLETT working in Wimborne Road, Lytchett Matravers...

Harold was a friend of Bill HEATH's who were both freemasons. He was known as "Rosebud" due to his immaculate dress, and the rosebud he always wore in his lapel.
In 1988 Ronald STANTON wrote a note in the margin of a letter from Ken ROSSITER "Rosebud - I have memories of a bright and neat, humourous, affable gentleman, really gentle and kindly."

Rosebud wrote to Ronald STANTON 5th July 1978, 2 weeks before Gracie's death "Gracie is so under the weather that she just hasnt the energy to do anything - can you imagine Gracie of all people being in that state!! For the last three weeks her doctor has been treating her for a persistant cough which has got progressively worse so that she is quite exhausted and falls asleep off and on all day. We decided that we must get to the root of the trouble so we went together to see him yesterday afternoon and the outcome is that he feels she has whooping cough. She has to have blood tests and x rays to confirm this diagnosis but we are hopeful that we shall know for certain next week."

There is a marriage for Charles Morris CAMPBELL to a Mary Ann ABBOTT recorded at St Mark's Kennington (21 Aug 1826). Witnessed by a "Mary Ann Morris CAMPBELL". A Mary Ann CAMPBELL b1805 is then buried in St Mary at Lambeth on 25th May 1830. This would fit before the marriage of Charles and Louisa.
Unsure whether this is "our" Charles Morris CAMPBELL since he is noted on his marriage certificate to Louisa BLOODWORTH as a "Bachelor" rather than "Widower".

Following on... discovered the birth of Mary Ann CAMPBELL to Charles and Mary Ann (Sep 1829). Then the burial of Mary Ann CAMPBELL aged 25 (of Brothers Row) 25th May 1830, then burial of Mary Ann CAMPBELL aged 1 (of Brothers Row) 6th June 1830. So it seems Mary Ann and her baby died within days of each other. Brothers Row is not too distant from where Charles Morris CAMPBELL was living 3 years later in 1833 when Frederick Robert was baptised. So it seems a good bet that this is Charles Morris' first wife and child. for photographs of the area around Vauxhall Row and Brothers Row (now under the National Maritime Building) where Charles and family lived.

Unable to locate "Charles CAMPBELL bc1806" on the census beyond 1851.

Charles was a Lighterman, which is the name given to the men who worked on the Thames barges. The 1841 census has a lodger living with Charles and his family. "William CHITTY" who was a bargebuilder.
