This is a rather lengthy/ convoluted query but I will be as concise as I can. James Wilton married Mary Bee circa 1805, possibly Street. They had at least 8 children, several carrying middle name of Bee, including Frances Bee, baptised Street 27 Dec 1818. I can find no further record of her after this date. If there is evidence she died before 1839 or was still alive after that date the rest of this post can be ignored. Francis Wilton married Charlotte Fletcher on 31 Dec 1839, Compton Dundon. I have found no trace of his birth/baptism but his year of birth is recorded on census returns as follows:- 1841 - 1817/21. 1851 - 1818. 1861 - 1815. 1871 - 1819. He was buried in Aug 1876, aged 62. Birth place Street.. Francis and Charlotte had a daughter, Sarah, baptised Compton Dundon, Feb 1842. She married William Lamport in 1859 and they had a daughter, Emily, baptised July 1866, Compton Dundon. In 1881 and 1891 Emily was recorded in the household of Henry Wilton, b 1844. James Wilton and Mary Bee had sons, John b 1813 and Samuel Bee, b 1820. In 1842 John married Mary Martha Lydford in Street. Groom's father James, witness Samuel. James and Mary had a son, Henry, baptised Apr 1844. From this I deduce that Francis/Frank Witon might well have been a member of James Wilton/Mary Bee family. Now for the real wild thought! Is it possible that the child recorded/transcribed as Frances it "her" baptism was in fact Francis? Or have I really got my knickers in a twist? I have considered contacting Free Reg, the source of much of my information to ask them to check the original record but thought I would subject my theory to independent scrutiny first.
