Arthur John Colton
1852 - 1904
 
 

Husband:

Arthur John Colton  

Born:

1852 St Giles, Reading, Dec quarter 2c / 307
Died: 1904 St Mary Reading - Sep quarter 2c / 182 - age 48 - (52)
Buried:    
Parents Arthur Colton
&
Maria Prismall
Age 48 at death would give Arthur a birth date of about 1856 but the only birth record found is 1852. Giving his true date at death as 52.

 

 

Wife:

Eliza Ann Hillier Mothers name taken from Herberts birth cert. (1893)

Born:

1858 Beech Hill, Basingstoke Berkshire - Sep quarter (2c 157)
Died: 1899 - Recorded as Coulton St Mary, Reading - Dec quarter (2c 250) - age - 44 - (41)
Buried:    
Parents  
&
 

Eliza's recorded death age (above) would give a birth date of about 1855. In the 1881 census Eliza's age was recorded as 23 which appears to be correct but in 1891 she was recored as 35 giving a bith date of 1856. So it would seem that her real age at death was actually 41.
In the 1881 census it is recorded that her birth place was Beech Hill, Berkshire which ties up with the birth record - Beech Hill was in the 'Registration District' of Bassingstoke untill 1878



Married:

Abt 1879 ?? No marriage record found at this time
