  • Name Mary BEATON 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born 20 Jun 1843  South Mundham, Pagham, Sussex, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Auntie Ivy's date book gives the date as 21st May. I don't know which is correct. Certificates are not always correct, and since I have a GRO copy rather than a copy of the local certificate there was another level of transcription where the wrong date (e.g. from the next entry in the register) could accidentally have been copied. 

      Name is Mary Bacon on her birth certificate. Mother's residence is given simply as Pagham i.e. no mention of South Mundham, I'm not sure if this means she just went to South Mundham for her confinement, or if it is an abbreviation of the full address. (South Mundham in the parish of Pagham)

    • From IGI and transcribed data on SFHG members database
      Latter shows Mary BACON, daughter of Charles and Mary, father a labourer, abode Nye Timber
    Gender Female 
    Residence 1851  North Bersted, South Bersted, Sussex, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • With her parents and 4 siblings, living in the parish of South Bersted, village of North Bersted at the time of the census - no further details to address.
    Occupation House servant to laundress 
    1861 
    • 1861 - ? - I have noted that Mary was a servant with a laundress. Have I seen census entry online but not saved image, or maybe from microfilm in the "old days" - I need to check my notes.
    Residence 1871  5, Providence Terrace, Kensington, London, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • At the time of the census (2 / 3 April), also when his son Harry was baptised in the same year (2 May), when the place was given as Earls Court rather than Kensington.
      Another family (4 people) were also living in the same house.
    Residence 1881  5, Angel Yard, Brentford End, Isleworth, Middlesex, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • With her husband, 5 children and a lodger
    Residence 1891  26, Avenue Road, Ealing, Middlesex, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Mary was living with her 3 sons Albert, Harry and Arthur and daughter Minnie; also present but shown separately as a lodger and his wife were her son George and his wife Emma.

      This was Minnie's home when she was baptised in 1892, and
      Mary's son Harry was of this address when he married in 1893 so she was presumably still living there then. I expect she loved to Lothian Cottage when she married David Black in 1899.
      The number of rooms is not shown, meaning there were at least 5.
    Occupation Laundress 
    1891 
    Residence From 1901 to 1920  Lothian House, The Green, Ealing, Middlesex, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • With her second husband David and his (adopted) son Clive and a boarder in 1901. Still with her David and Clive at the time of the 1911 census. In 1911  Lothian House was shown as having 8 rooms. I believe it was the same place as shown as Lothian Cottage in the 1901 census, since David had been living at Lothian House in 1891.
      Mary was still living in Lothian House when she wrote her will in 1920.
    Moved From Middlesex to Boston 
    Between 1920 and 1933  Boston, Lincolnshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • After spending her early years in Sussex (and possibly Hampshire), then most of her adult life in London / Middlesex, sometime between 1920 and her death in 1933 Mary moved to live near her only daughter to survive infancy, my great grandmother, in Boston in Lincolnshire. This seems a surprising move, given that she had several sons and lots of family in the Ealing area, but perhaps it was a daughter's care she needed in her final years, or she may have just had a stronger bond with her daughter - she did leave everything to her in her will.
    Also known as Mary BACON

    Although Mary lived until 1933, the will was written in 1920. I assume it was her last.

    Transcript:
    This is the last Will and Testament
    of me Mary Beaton of Lothian House
    The Green Ealing W.5. Widow Whereby
    I give devise and bequeath All my
    real and personal estate and property
    whatsoever and wheresoever unto
    my daughter Minnie Hambling
    absolutely And I appoint my said
    daughter Minnie Hambling sole
    Executrix of this my Will In
    witness whereof…
    Notes 
    • Presumably due to the move to Boston all of Mary's family items - her marriage certificate, photos, will and a family Bible were inherited probably first by her daughter and then her granddaughter Ivy Stainton nee Hambling, my great aunt, who also lived in Boston. Ivy being childless they then went to my mother and so I have been fortunate enough to inherit them.

      Some clues in the form of Christian names and the odd place / relationship on photos have helped my researchs which have enabled me to identify a few, but unfortunately a number remain unidentified; they can be seen on my most wanted page.

    Possibly Mary Beaton
    Possibly Mary Beaton
    The note "possibly Mary Beaton" on the back of the photo was written by me; I added it when going through these old photos with my great aunt (Ivy Stainton nee Hambling) in the 1970s or 80s. (But I wasn't the person who coloured the eyes in!)

    Everything about this says 1860s (the mention of 1862 on the back, the wide skirt and the backcloth), which would fit in with Mary: she was born in 1843 in Pagham, married in Chichester in 1864 and appears to have lived in Chichester until moving away…

    Walking in a garden which appears to be next door to a chapel - or else in the churchyard - was this in Boston or Ealing?
    Lothian House
    Lothian House
    I think my gt gt grandmother Mary nee Beaton probably lived at Lothian House from the time she married David Black in 1899 until she moved to Boston towards the end of her life (between 1924, when her daughter moved to Boston, and 1933, when she died).
    I guess that one of the men is David Black; it seems most likely that the one standing is David and the one seated is James Bull, the elderly boarder living with the family at the time of the 1901 census.
