      1871 Census has Caroline TARGETT, a servant at the household of James Edward (a draper born in Scotland) 12 West Front, Southampton.
      Name: Caroline Targett Age: 17 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1854 Relation: Servant Gender: Female Where born: Southampton, Hampshire, England Civil Parish: St Mary Ecclesiastical parish: Trinity Town: Southampton County/Island: Hampshire Country: England

      08/03
      Email from Graham Turner:

      My mother's name was Patricia Frances (Oakes) Turner 1930-2002 b.Isleworth,
      Middlesex.
      My grandmother (mum's mum) was Mary Ann (Stanton) Oakes 1893-1965
      b.Southampton.
      My great grandfather (mmf) was William John Stanton 1852-(between
      1893-1901?) b.Weymouth,Dorset.
      My great grandmother (mmm) was Caroline (Targett) Stanton 1854-1899
      b.Southampton

      Initially I received the names 'William John and Caroline Stanton' from one
      of my English cousins. I have since purchased Mary Anne's birth certificate
      to get Caroline's surname (Targett).

      From FreeBMD (Searching for all Stantons in Southampton):
      William John Stanton and Caroline Targett. m.Jun quarter 1873.
      William James Stanton. 0. d.1878. (Could this have been their firstborn?)
      Mary Anne Stanton. b.Dec quarter 1893.
      Caroline Stanton. 46. d.Mar quarter 1899. (My mother always said that her
      mother (Mary) had been bought up as an orphan!)
      - here's hoping they hurry up and complete transcribing Southampton!

      From the LDS 1881 Census:
      William J Stanton. 29. b.Weymouth,Dorset (This is only place I managed to
      get Willy's birthplace!)
      Caroline. 27. b.Southampton
      *Florence C. 9m. b.Southampton
      Address: 90 Bevois St, Southampton

      From Ancestry Plus 1891 Census:
      William Stanton. 40. b.Southampton!! (Case of alziemers?)
      Caroline. 37. b. Southampton
      *Grace. 11. b.Southampton (*Can't figure this one - unless she didn't like
      her name!)
      FREDERICK. 9. b.Southampton
      James. 7. b.Southampton
      Eva. 4. b.Southampton
      Ester. 2. b.Southampton
      (My mother's sister Eileen can remember both her Aunties Eva and Ester!!)
      Address: 22 Guilford St (I think! - as its very hard to read),St
      Mary,Southampton

      From 1991 Census:
      FREDERICK Stanton. 19. b.Southampton. Occupation-Railway Engineer.
      May*. 7. b.Southampton. (Mary* - I should imagine this is just a spelling
      mistake!)
      Address: St Marys,Southampton
      Fred and Ma(r)y have consecutive personnel numbers. It looks as though Fred
      was looking after little sis as Caroline had died in 1899 and it appears
      William must have died between 1893 and 1901! I haven't as yet paid to look
      at who else was in this household.

      However what you might really find interesting, although I know that you
      did mention on an earlier occasion that your Genealogical interests lay
      mainly with the Stantons, are the ancestors of a little lady (she could of
      course have been a large lady) shown only as "Mary Ann ?" on your tree - the
      wife of Richard Targett.

      This is what I believe her ancestry (and ours!!) could possibly be:

      Caroline TARGETT. born 1854 - Birth Cert attached.
      Parents - Richard TARGETT & Mary Ann TARGETT nee PATTEN

      Mary PATTEN & Richard TARGETT married 10 Oct 1852, St Mary,Southampton
      Both father's names were William. Mary's middle name was not shown - I
      have the Cert - you're welcome to a copy.

      From the 1861 Census Mary A Targett is shown as age 28 (b.1833),
      born.Salisbury,Wilts - Census attached

      From the IGI (sure not reliable but can be a good pointer):
      Parents: William PATTEN & Elizabeth
      1. Mary Ann PATTEN Christening: 01 SEP 1833 Fisherton Anger*, Wiltshire
      2. George PATTEN Christening: 18 JUN 1837 Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire
      3. Martha PATTEN Christening: 18 JUN 1837 Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire
      4. John PATTON Christening: 06 JUL 1828 Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire
      5. William PATTEN Christening: 05 SEP 1830 Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire
      6. Charles PATTEN Christening: 19 MAY 1839 Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire
      *Fisherton Anger was next Salisbury!

      Marriages: William PATTEN
      Spouse: Elizabeth NAPIER <<-- Take note of this surname!!!!!
      Marriage: 01 JUN 1827 Fisherton Anger,Wiltshire (M152081 1754 - 1895)

      1841 Census. FRC Fiche Ref HO107 1167/2
      Branch & Dole Hundred, New Sarum, Fisherton Anger.
      Fisherton Street - Page 30
      William Patten, 35 yrs, M.S. (merchant seaman?) - No place of birth
      given - means not Wiltshire - all the others have Y for yes in place of
      birth field - meaning they were born in Wiltshire.
      Elizabeth Patten, 35, Y
      John Patten, 13, Y
      William Patten, 10, Y
      Mary Patten, 8, Y
      Martha Patten, 6, Y
      George Patten, 4, Y
      Charles Patten, 2, Y

      I'm in contact with a couple of people (Norman Hallam and Gill and
      Graham Gill) who are descended from these Patten children and both appear to
      be full on Genealogists. They have both sent me much interesting and
      relavent information.

      Rather than bore you with more detail I've included 3 pages of the
      Napier Tree originally sent by Norman (go to the bottom of page 2 first and
      work your way up) - he has since sent 16 pages going back to the 1300's to
      the Lairds of Merchiston (Edinburgh) with sources. .

      You will also see the name "Tregonwell" which is a line the Napiers
      married into - I've been promised this tree as well. Norman has said that
      this line is fascinating with Sir John Tregonwell (~1498-1565) (apparently
      my 12 x GGF - and hence your 13 x GGF) being a lawyer in the Court of Henry
      VIII - representing Henry when he got rid of Katherine of Aragon - he was
      also the first owner of Milton Abbey after the dissolution of the
      monastries. His portait is attached. Another Tregonwell was the founder of
      Bournemouth.

      I think thats enough for one sitting - I hope it's not too confusing - if you are interested I do have quite a bit of information that I'm trying to collate that I can also send. If you look on the internet there is copious amounts of information on the Napiers.
