WHEATON, Rebecca (b. ABT 1826, d. UNKNOWN)

Note: Addresses
1841 High Street, Bluntisham, Huntingdonshire
At this address there was a Robert (born 1781) Catherine (born 1786) and Rebecca (born
1827) WHEATON. There are no others with these names in our family in
Huntingdonshire in 1841. Was Rebecca a granddaughter, a daughter of William or
Richard? To include the information within the family it has been decided that
William and Rebecca were the parents. (See explanation below)
Living with the family was William SKINNER (25) Shepherd born not in Huntingdonshire
1842 Manea, Cambridgeshire
1845 Bluntisham, Huntingdonshire
1847 Union Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire
1849 Union Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire
1851 St Ives Union Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire

No birth or baptism has been found for Rebecca; there are no suitable marriage or death entries in the Civil Registration Indexes for this Rebecca WHEATON. Who is she? Where does she fit in to the WHEATON family?

From the 1841 census it would appear she was born about 1827. At the time of the 1841 Census Rebecca was living with Robert WHEATON and Catherine WHEATON née WHITE. Was she their granddaughter?

First, are there any known Rebecca WHEATONs who could be the same person as this Rebecca WHEATON (of Unknown Parentage).

1. Rebecca WHEATON, baptised 1795 daughter of the daughter of Robert and Catherine.
This Rebecca WHEATON married a William WHEATON in 1821 and had two children, Charles and Catherine, both baptised in 1825. William WHEATON was not living with a wife in 1841, and in 1851 said that he was a widower. Therefore, we had assumed that William's wife Rebecca WHEATON had died before 1841.

However, if Rebecca (of Unknown Parentage) is the same person as the Rebecca WHEATON who married William WHEATON, Rebecca and William could have parted before 1841, and Rebecca could have had five children with an unknown father. William was still alive in 1870 when Emily (Rebecca's daughter) married and entered the name of William WHEATON as her father on her marriage certificate, so perhaps there had been a reconciliation. On the other hand, if the WHEATON family was a close-knit one, perhaps she was brought up by William's father, also a William.

But, this Rebecca WHEATON would have been 48 years old when Martha was born, and about 56 at the time of the birth of the second Arthur And would she have given the son by the unknown father the same name as her first-born who was still living? Given the foregoing we think that this Rebecca WHEATON is not the same person as the Rebecca of Unknown parentage.

2. Rebecca WHEATON, born about 1827, who was living with Robert and Catherine WHEATON in 1841.
As always, problems do not come singly. The ages of Robert WHEATON and Catherine WHEATON née WHITE entered on the 1841 census do not correspond to the ages of the couple to whom the entry belongs. Robert WHEATON (stated as being born 1781 instead of 1772) was the son of William and Elizabeth WHEATON; his wife Catherine died in 1860 aged 87, so was born about 1773 and not 1786 as the age on the 1841 census indicates. There is, therefore, about a ten year difference for the two adults between their actual ages and the ages shown on the census.

But what of the Rebecca WHEATON who was living with them in 1841? Her age is given as 14 years old. Robert and Catherine's daughter (No.1 above) would have been 47 year old. A 33 year difference is somewhat different to the 10 year difference in the ages given for Robert and Catherine. Perhaps this Rebecca was a granddaughter. In 1843 when the mystery Rebecca had her first child, this Rebecca, the one living with Robert and Catherine in 1841 would have been 15 years old so could just have been the mother of Martha.

So, if Rebecca was born in 1827, as calculated from the age on the 1841 Census, and she was a granddaughter of Robert and Catherine, which of Robert and Catherine's children was Rebecca’s parent?
Of the sons, Richard is the only one old enough to have been a possible father for Rebecca. (Daniel would have been 13, Isaac 12) Richard married in 1825 and had children in 1826, 1827, 1830 and 1831 so, although possible, it is unlikely that he would be Rebecca’s father.

Of the daughters,
* Jane married in 1812, Ann married in 1820 and Sophia married 1823 so they would have been COUSINS, HALL and AUBREY respectively in 1827 when Rebecca WHEATON was born.

* Elizabeth married in 1828 when she became LEE and Phoebe died 1829, age 17 years old so both could just possibly be Rebecca's mother.

* Rebecca married William WHEATON in 1821 (See 1 above) She and William could have been the parents of this Rebecca (of Unknown Parentage), born 1827, and the birth date would fit in with the other two children, both baptised in 1825. If the mother, Rebecca, had died before 1841 as originally deduced from details on the 1841 Census for William, perhaps the daughter, Rebecca, went to live with her grandparents which would correspond with the information we already have. Perhaps Robert and Catherine were concerned that they might not be able to continue to look after Rebecca as they were so much older, which is why they indicated that they were younger than their true ages on the 1841 census. Rebecca, the mother of these three children, named her son Charles, who, if she is part of the William/Rebecca WHEATON family means she gave him the same name as her brother. It would also follow that perhaps, if Emily was in contact with her mother's father, she might have thought of him, not as her grandfather, but as her father. (On the other hand, she might just have wanted a name on the marriage certificate).

So, it is possible that Rebecca of Unknown Parentage could be the granddaughter of Robert and Catherine WHEATON, and maybe the daughter of William and Rebecca WHEATON.

3. Rebecca WHEATON née WEST or BECK, wife of Robert WHEATON.
This couple, part of Carol PYENTA’s family, were together with two of their children in Somersham in 1841, and on their own there in 1851. A Rebecca WHEATON, wife of Robert WHEATON died in 1853, so given this information it seems unlikely that this Rebecca is the mother of Charles and Emily.

There are no other Rebeccas in our WHEATON family, nor have we found any others in the Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire records.

Given all the foregoing, it seems most likely that William WHEATON and his wife Rebecca (née WHEATON), had a daughter Rebecca, whose baptism we have not found. (Given the problems we are having with Non-conformist registers, this is not surprising). From census information it would seem that William's wife died young, at least before 1841, which could have left him with at least three children born before 1827. His wife's parents, Robert and Catherine, would appear to have taken one of the children, Rebecca, born 1827, into their home. They were concerned because they were getting on in years, so when asked for their ages for the 1841 census they made out they were ten years younger than they actually were. Their granddaughter, Rebecca, was at this time 14 years old, and working as a female servant. Two years later Rebecca gave birth to her first child, Martha, followed by Charles and Emily and then the two Arthurs.

And one more HOWEVER, this time in large type. The daughter of William and Rebecca WHEATON, one Catherine Ann WHEATON married John FREESTONE in 1847, and in 1851 living with John and Catherine FREESTONE was a Martha WHATTON (WHEATON?) age 7 born Harris (Chatteris?), Cambridgeshire, described as a cousin. Martha, the daughter of Rebecca would have been 7, and although the Martha living with Catherine Ann in 1851 is a niece rather than a cousin I am sure this is the same person. If so, it does suggest that Catherine Ann and Rebecca (of Unknown Parentage) were sisters, just as I have surmised in the foregoing notes! So, Rebecca has accordingly been included here as William and Rebecca's younger daughter.

WHEATON, Emily (b. 7 JUN 1847, d. UNKNOWN)
Note: Addresses
1851 St Ives Union Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire
1861 White Hall Ins Post Office, High or Main Street (that is how it appears on census),
Brampton, Huntingdonshire.
Emily is a servant to Joseph ABBOTT (54), Boot Shoe Make, Publican born
Thrapston, Northamptonshire, his wife Susana (64) born Eynsbury, Huntingdonshire,
son Joseph (30) Boot Shoe Maker born Brampton, Huntingdonshire, daughter-in-law
Ann (24) widow Boot Shoe widow born Membury, Huntingdonshire and granddaughter
Elizabeth ABBOT (2) born Brampton, Huntingdonshire. Servants were Jane BRIGGS
(23) General Servant born Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, Phillip WATSON (15) Servant
born Hemingford Abbots, Huntingdonshire. An apprentice was George ADAMS born
Over, Cambridgeshire. Visitors were Harriet BAXTER (34) daughter, married born
Brampton, Huntingdonshire and grandchildren Thomas A (7) born Cambridge,
Cambridgeshire and Harriet E (3) BAXTER Stamford, Lincolnshire
1870 43 St Paul's Road, Islington, Middlesex
1871 9 Clarence Place, City Road, St Luke, Middlesex as Emma
1881 30 Northampton Street, Islington, Middlesex
1891 13 Chalfont Road, Islington, London
1901 12 Hornsey Street, Lower Holloway, Islington, London as a widow
1911 Not found

On her birth certificate, and that of her sister and brothers, no father is entered, and their mother is Rebecca
On her marriage certificate her father is shown as William WHEATON, Labourer.

Where is there information which could match these details?

1. Rebecca WHEATON baptised 1795 daughter of Robert and Catherine, wife of William WHEATON
They married in 1821 and had two children, Charles and Catherine both baptised in 1825. William WHEATON was not living with a wife in 1841, and in 1851 said that he was a widower.
However, they could have parted, and Rebecca had three children with an unknown father. William was still alive in 1870 when Emily married, and perhaps there had been a reconciliation. On the other hand, if the WHEATON family was a close-knit one, perhaps she was brought up by William's father, also a William.

On the other hand, Rebecca would have been at about 48 when Martha was born, least 50 when Charles was born, and 52 when Emily was born. And would she have given this son the same name as her first-born? We do not think this is the right Rebecca.

2. Rebecca WHEATON living with Robert and Catherine in 1841. The ages of all three do not coincide with the dates we have for their births but it seems likely that the Robert on the census (born 1781 instead of 1772) is the son of William and Elizabeth WHEATON, and that the ages were wrongly given, or written down. There is about a ten year difference for the two adults which might be acceptable when the ages involved are 60 and 70.

But what of the Rebecca? Her age is given as 14 years old. Robert and Catherine's daughter would have been 47 year old. If a mistake was made, a 33 year difference is somewhat different to the 10 year difference in the ages given for Robert and Catherine. Perhaps this Rebecca was a granddaughter. In 1843 she would have been 15 years, so could just have been the mother of Charles. But why did Emily give William WHEATON as her father's name? Robert and Catherine did not name any of their sons William.

If Rebecca was born in 1827 as calculated from the age on the 1841 Census, and she was a granddaughter of Robert and Catherine, which of their children was her parent?
i Jane married in 1812, so would have been a COUSINS in 1827
ii Rebecca married in 1821 to William WHEATON (See 1 above) She and William could
have been the mother of this other Rebecca, born 1827, and this would fit in with the
other two children, both baptised in 1825. If the mother, Rebecca, had died before
1841 as originally deduced from details on the 1841 Census for William, perhaps
the daughter, Rebecca, went to live with her grandparents. Perhaps they were concerned
that they might not be able to keep her as they were so much older, which is why they
indicated that they were younger than their true ages on the 1841 census. The mother
of Emily named her son Charles, which, if she is part of the William/Rebecca WHEATON
family means she gave him the same name as her brother.

It would also follow that perhaps, if Emily was in contact with her mother's father, she
might have thought of him, not as her grandfather, but as her father. On the other hand,
she might just have wanted a name on the marriage certificate.
iii Ann married in 1820 so would have been a HALL in 1827
iv Richard married in 1825, his daughter was born 1826 and he died in 1838. We have
no information about what happened to the daughter, or the wife. It is possible that
Rebecca the daughter could belong in this family. But, why did Emily say her father
was William?
v Sophia married 1823 so would have been AUBREY in 1827
vi Elizabeth married in 1828, so it is possible for her to be the mother. But again, where
did the name William WHEATON come from for Emily's father?
vii Phoebe died 1829, age 17, so as she would have been 15 in 1827 it is just possible that
she could have been Rebecca's mother
viii Daniel, would only have been 13 in 1827
ix Isaac, similarly, he would have been too young.

3. Rebecca WHEATON née WEST or BECK, wife of Robert WHEATON. The couple were together with two of their children in Somersham in 1841, and on their own there in 1851. A Rebecca WHEATON, wife of Robert WHEATON died in 1853, so it seems unlikely that this Rebecca is the mother of Emily and her brothers.

There are no other Rebeccas in our WHEATON family, or in other records in the counties of Huntingdonshire or Cambridgeshire

Given all the foregoing, it seems most likely that William WHEATON and his wife Rebecca
(née WHEATON), had a daughter Rebecca, whose baptism we have not found. From census information it would seem that William's wife died young which could have left him with at least three children born before 1827, so perhaps under 10 years of age. His wife's parents, Robert and Catherine, took one of the children, Rebecca, born 1827, into their home. They were concerned because they were getting on in years, so when asked for their ages for the 1841 census they made out they were ten years younger than they actually were. Their granddaughter, Rebecca, was at this time 14, and working as a female servant. Two years later Rebecca gave birth to her first child, Martha, followed by Charles, Emily, Arthur, and after his death, another Arthur.

Since writing the above we have found Martha WHEATON, sister of Emily, living with her aunt Catherine WHEATON. This proves that Emily's mother Rebecca, was the daughter of William and Rebecca WHEATON.

WHEATON, Charles (b. 11 MAR 1845, d. 4 FEB 1874)
Note: On the death certificate the age of Charles is given as 24, which indicates that he was born in 1850. There are no Charles WHEATON births in the Indexes for 1850.

In the Birth Indexes at the Family Record Centre information for all the Charles listed for the period 1840 to 1867 have been found. They went to America, died, or are on the 1881 Census. Except one, and that is the Charles born in 1845, son of Rebecca. We have assumed, therefore, that given he died in the Workhouse his age may have been estimated, which allows for the discrepancy.

WHEATON, George Ernest (b. BET JAN AND MAR 1861, d. BET JAN AND MAR 1936)
Note: Addresses
1871 28 Darwin Street, St George the Martyr, Surrey
1881 39 Castle Street, Southwark St George the Martyr, Surrey
Lodging with Mary Ann HOLLAND (Pedlar, Age 40, born Bermondsey) and her
son and daughter
1891 6 Garden Cottages, Lambeth, London (RG12/398 folio 23 page 39)
1901 There was no George WHEATON recorded on the 1901 census. However, there was the
following:
7 Youngs Road, London Road, St George the Martyr, Southwark, Surrey
George WEBB (39) Dock???? Labourer born London Bermondsey and
Cecilia WEBB (36) born Isle of Thanet, Kent
Other than the surname these details match George and Cecilia.
Cecilia died in the Croydon District, Surrey in 1905, Croydon being south of Southwark, and
George died in the Southwark District.
There was also an adopted daughter, Lily McKENZIE (3) born Clapham, Surrey
1911 85 Frant Road, Thornton Heath, Surrey
More problems!
George WHEATON (51) widower born London a Labourer was the son-in-law of Susan LARGE
(66) widow Kept by Children born Lady Wells, Kent. Living with her were here son Ernest (33)
Carman and daughter (27) Charing both born Bermondsey, Surrey. A Visitor was Phelie
DENNIS (2 months born South Lambeth, Surrey. Ceclia SMITH (2) born Whitechapel, London
was a Nurse Child.
Also living with them was George WHEATON's daughter Lilly WHEATON (13) School born
Clapham, Surrey, which corresponds with the Lily McKENZIE (3) born Clapham, Surrey on the
above 1901 census. The information for George WHEATON also corresponds with the details
we have for this George Ernest WHEATON.

* There is no Lily/Lilly WHEATON birth registered 1896/1898 so it does suggest that Lily McKENZIE (1901) and Lilly WHEATON (1911) are the same person
* Cecilia WHEATON died in the Croydon District
* George Ernest WHEATON married Cecilia YOUNG confirmed through copy of original index
* On the 1881 census Edward and Susan LARGE had a daughter Cecilia
* On the 1871 census there is a Cecilia YOUNG living as a boarder with another family; I cannot find a Susan LARGE or YOUNG.
* There is a Cecilia YOUNG birth registered December quarter 1864 Thanet District, Kent. There was no Ceclia LARGE birth registered in Kent during this 1864/1866

Despite the differences in the name I do feel that this is the right family, needs further research

Note: Addresses
1851 Martha is not living with her mother, sister and brothers in the St Ives Union
Workhouse, Hemingford Grey, Huntingdonshire in 1851

There is no suitable marriage or death in the Civil Registration Indexes.

At this address was Catherine Ann FREESTONE née WHEATON with her husband and family,
together with John FREESTONE's mother, Sophia.
Living with them was a Martha WHATTON, a cousin born Harris, Cambridgeshire age 7. It is
more than likely that this was actually a Martha WHEATON and that Harris should be
Chatteris. The only Martha WHEATON of the right age is this one, daughter of Rebecca.
This information has enabled us to decide that Rebecca was a sister of Catherine Ann

Information from Malcolm DANIELLS 20/1/2007
"My Mother told me that Robert died in a work related accident at Marriages Mill in Colchester"

Information from Malcolm DANIELLS 24/2/2007
"I have found an possible explanation for the deaths of Emma CATLETT and Robert MOUAT in Billericay. A friend living there has told me that it contained one of the largest poor hospitals [some times called work houses) in the area and seriously ill people ended up there.
We know that Emma CATLETT died in 1909, as did Robert MOUAT, and family history says that Robert died of complications resulting from an industrial accident.
This would show a reason for Arthur WHEATON and Emma MOUAT née ROSE to be visiting Billericay and this could be how they met.
The same friend also said that a Wheelwright had Joinery and Blacksmithing skills which ties up Roberts trade"

WHEATON, Emma (b. BET JUL AND SEP 1852, d. 26 SEP 1854)
Note: NEWSPAPER REPORTS OF THE DROWNING
OF ELIZA AND EMMA

From the CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS 30th September 1854
SOMERSHAM. - Distressing Occurrence. - Two little girls, of the respective ages of two and five years, daughters of William WHEATON, living at a water-mill on the bank of the Twenty-feet river, which divides the fens of Warboys and Somersham, were drowned on Tuesday last. They had crossed the river with two elder children, who were sent to glean, and during the afternoon left their companions unobserved; and it is supposed that in attempting to recross, both fell into the stream. The mother was at work in the mill, within a few yards of the spot, unconscious of the circumstance, until apprised by a booby fellow, who, seeing a child struggling in the water, ran to tell the woman. Had he rendered immediate assistance the probability is that one life might have been saved; but the short interval which elapsed between seeing and doing completed the sad catastrophe. An inquest was held on Wednesday, Verdict, "Accidental Death"

From the CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE 30th September 1854
SOMERSHAM. - Two Children Drowned. - An inquest was held on Wednesday last, the 27th inst., before C MARGETTS, Es., coroner for the Hundred of Hurstingstone, at the Water Engine, Somersham Fen, on the bodies of Eliza WHEATON, aged 5 years, and Emma WHEATON, age 2 years, children of Wm WHEATON and Ann his wife, who live in the said mill. These children were suffered to cross by a dangerous plank the twenty-foot river, and in consequence fell in and both perished. The jury, after a patient investigation, returned a verdict of accidental death. The first witness examined was William NORMAN, shepherd to Mr Thomas EKINS, who saw one child in the water; and the man actually ran into the mill and told the child's mother instead of getting the child out; and then ran across another field to fetch a man to get it out. The father of the children being some distance off at work and hearing the screams of the mother, ran and got them both out, but too late to save either of them. The man NORMAN received a justly-merited rebuke and caution from the worthy coroner.
