    Clayton Family Research - Marylebone, London - Help Please.

    Hi Everyone - would like to pick your collective brains please. I'm trying to trace the parents (and before them) of my ancestor William Clayton who was b. abt. 1810. In 1841 he was a 'man servant' living in Marylebone with his wife Ann and his children Joseph and Ann. It would appear that both of these children were born before the 'mandatory' registration of births so I cannot get William's wife Ann's maiden name from a birth certificate. Their local church is no longer there and I've tried to search through old parish records at the London Met Archives to no avail.

    William died in 1849 and there may have been a child who died in 1848 (no birth registered). Does anyone think that either or both of the death certificates would reveal anything that would aid my research? Any other suggestions gratefully received!

    Roy

    Val - one of the problems is that Clayton was/is a pretty common name so one needs something more solid than the same surname to be certain...and of course 'age' in the 1841 Census was 'the nearest 5 years' so I'm not certain about the birth year! Any views on the value of 'Death Certs.'? Regards Roy

    I think the only way the death certificate would be of help to identify him is if the informant is a sibling, so a bit of a long shot!

    Death certs can be extremely useful, but of course the age given is only as good as the knowledge of the informant, who may not know the exact age. Still, the informant's name and address, and the deceased's occupation, can help to identify the person. It won't give his parents' names or his wife's maiden name, though (unless the informant happens to be a parent or brother-in-law).

    Hello Roy,

    it says,

    entry number 1149. William Clayton
    abode: Edward Street
    when buried: 1st July
    age: 39

    I guess to get more info you would need to purchase the cert, this should give a family member [sometimes not though]


    the place would be Westminster- St Marylebone - 1849
