David Henry Colton
1824 - 1894
 
 
In those early years we find the surname 'Colton' spelt in several ways 'Coulton' / 'Cotton'. Many people in those times were not able to read or write so they would have been reliant on the transcriber and in all fairness they in turn would have have been influenced by dialects. As time progressed we see that the families preference was 'Colton'.

David age 31 married Mary age 37 in 1855 at St Lawrence, Reading
She is recorded as Mary J. Tubb and Mary J. Bowler so she was a widow.

Mary J. Tubb (then age 29) married George Bowler in 1847 at St Giles Reading
Mary was also recorded as Mary J. Buxcey so it looks as though there was also another marriage ot this could have been her maiden name.
