Evan Tedston was born 28 Jan 1871 in Wednesbury, Staffordshire and registered in the GRO: TITSTON, EVAN RAMSDALE GRO Reference: 1871 M Quarter in WEST BROMWICH Volume 06B Page 839 The registration indicates his father was a Tedston/Titston (and several other variations including Testot) and mother was a Ramsdale. All the other children in the Tedston family are registered with mother Browning, who is Esther Browning married to Elijah Tedston. What's more, after the 1871 Census Evan goes to live with Charles Vaughan and on subsequent Censuses Charles is named as Evan's father. When Evan went to get a marriage license to marry Esther Maria Davies/Davis in 1903 he must have discovered somehow that he wasn't a Vaughan and had only been "adopted" as Charles Vaughan's son, still officially being a Tedston. So he married as a Tedston and his 2 daughters had surname Tedstone. One daughter, Violet Tedstone married a Mr Jones whose daughter is a friend of mine on Ancestry. The other, Lilian Tedston, married my (many times removed etc) cousin James Done. Both my friend and I are puzzled about Evan's true origins and have run out of ideas! HELP!!
