    Notes 


    • Not many could write despite the onset of provision of
      schools in 1850, there was a need
      for them to gain employment in the expansion
      of industry, commerce, the railways, etc.

      A Penny in those days was equivalent
      to 4 Pints of Ale and was an expensive for the Labouring
      Class whose population
      compared to Farmers say was immence.

      Richard was never able to support himself
      as well as his family by being a Letter Carrier but the other
      kind of Carrier
      would.

      Such Carriers were by and large to offer regular transport to and from
      Market Towns when they were
      held, where he would have known Louth and Alford.
      When there was not a Market Day he was available
      to take, privately people with
      their goods and chattels to see their friends, possibly with a horse and trap.

      He would have also taken Farmers to other farms for social and business to
      which he would also be paid.

      Hello Ron,

      I have been doing this Ancestry for a very long time and I have developed a strategy in determining some of my own difficult connections. I saw yours as a regional event and separated North Somercotes and the other place where there was also a Richard HUFTON to be found.

      I also looked at the naming conventions that were being applied by the families and saw the same Charlotte being used in your own Ancestry in two generations.

      These of course may seem trivial but are they important. Emmerson SNOWDEN was deliberate.

      I asked you to deliberately look for Ann and sister Mary for their christenings at North Somercotes that clearly state their mother was Charlotte , also that the 1851 census at North Somercotes revealed Richard as the "Carrier".

      I have provided proof with inclusion to both Ann and Mary HOFTON christening documents on my Tree.

      They all add to make clear that they must be her parents.

      Mary HUFTON went on to marry and I had inserted the image of her first daughter who was Ann Hufton LOUGHTON, obviously named after Ann HUFTON, your Ancestor.

      You will
      also note that both daughters were to name children Hedley, this adds and puts
      confirmation.

      I was also keen for you to see the Burial Record for Richard HUFTON at North Somercotes and he must have been looked after by his closest at the zenith of his life.

      It is within all of the various elements that provide positive clues and conclusion.

      Richard, who went on to marry Mary Ann NICHOLSON, if memory serves took place 2 years later than Ann was born. and their parish is too far away from North Somercotes.

      I am always looking at maps when I do my research, to see whether there is any realism, and also to see whether any siblings were to migrate with the parents.

      Yet none of Mary Ann NICHOLSON
      children did, and certainly Mary Ann herself was buried where she was to raise her children, so was her husband.

      When you have come to realise, my version will provide an image of Mary HOFTON marriage.

      Enough for the moment.

      Regards

      Leslie

      Everything is in perfect order
