More on Sarah Ann Colton / Coulton

 

 

No birth record has been found for Sarah or her father Richard.
The nearest is Sarah Ann Colton born 1875 at Basford Nottinghamshire - Mar quarter (7b 162) although on census records both Sarah and her farther state that they were born at Reading.
The problem is that there are so many ways the name Colton has been spelt over the years.

The nearest marriage for Sarah's parents is ....
1875: Richard Cotton married Elizabeth Eccles at Bolton - Mar quarter (8c 483)

Age 6
1881:
Census - Royal Berkshire Hospital
Sarah A. Colton - Patient - age 6 (1875) - born Reading, Berkshire - Sarah's name was spelt 'Coulton'

Sarah had a artificial leg and we are unsure when she lost it, or how. - was this why she was in hospital?
It has been mentioned that Sarah was kicked on the leg in the school playground and her injury developed gangrene.

Meanwhile Sarah's parents came up on the census as below - Again they have also spelt their surname 'Coulton' but by the 1891 census they have dropped the 'u' maybe to blend in with the other Colton families in the area
1881:
Census - 48 Mary's Butts, Reading, St Mary, Berkshire
Richard Coulton - Head - age 28 (1853) - Turncock (W) - born Reading, Berkshire
Elizabeth Coulton - Wife - age 24 (1857) - born Marlborough, Wiltshire - which is about 36 miles from Reading

Age 16
1891:
Census - 6 Hosier Street, Reading, Berkshire
Richard Colton - Head - age 41 (1850) - Turncock Waterworks - born Reading, Berkshire
Elizabeth Colton - Wife - age 36 (1855) - born Malborough, Reading, Berkshire
Sarah A Colton - Daughter - age 16 (1875) - born Reading, Berkshire

Age 23
1898:
Marriage at Reading, Berkshire of Robert Charles Luxton to Sarah Ann Colton - Reading - Dec quarter 2c / 917

Age 24
1899:
April 10, Annie Dorothy was born - Reading - June quarter 2c / 349

1899: Annie Dorothy Luxton was baptised Jun 4, 1899 at St Mary's Reading - Mother's name Annie Luxton

Age 26
1901:
Census - 12 Boadened Lane, St Mary The Virgin, Reading, Berkshire
Robert Luxton - Head - age 27 - Breadmaker, Biscuit Factory Hand - born Southampstead, Berkshire
Sarah Luxton - Wife - age 26 - Reading, Berkshire
Annie Luxton - Daughter - age 1 - born Reading, Berkshire

1908: - December - A record has been found of a death of Richard Andrew Colton age 58 - St Mary, Reading - 2c / 198 - was this Sarah's father - needs checking

1911: Census - 2 Hope Place Reading, St Mary, Berkshire
Reference: RG14PN6559 RG78PN326 RD121 SD1 ED4 SN145 - RG number: RG14 - Piece: 6559
Sarah Ann Luxton - Head - Married - age 37 (1874) - born Reading St Marys
Dorothy Luxton - Daughter - age 11 (1900) - School - born Reading St Marys
Rosie Luxton - Daughter - age 7 (1904) - School - born Reading St Marys
Daisy Luxton - Daughter age 3 (1908) - born Reading St Marys
Robert Luxton - Son - age 1 (1910) - born Reading St Marys

Age 37
1912:
- Death of Robert Charles Luxton, Sarah's 1st husband

Age 39
1914:
September - Sarah Ann Luxton marries Richard C. Blake - Reading 2c / 860

Husband: 2

Richard C. Blake

1866 ?

Children with Richard:

Name:

Date of birth:
Birth Place:
Marjorie Elizabeth. Blake 1915
St Mary, Reading - Sept quarter 2c / 615
1919 - Child death - St Giles, Reading
Mar quarter 2c / 688 - age 3
Marjorie Elizabeth. K. Blake died - age 3 at St Giles Reading

There are 2 recorded possibilities of the death of Richard Blake but at this time I think the first would be correct - it is said that Richard was working on the roof of woolworth when he fell to his death.
1917:
- Blake Richard C. - age 51 at Amesbury (5a 152)
1918: - Blake Richard C. - age 26 at Uxbridge 3a 61

1919: March - There is a record of a death of Marjorie E.K. Blake age 3 of Reading Mar quarter 2c / 688
If these entries for Marjorie are correct then Sarah lost not only her husband but the child by him as well

Age 46

June - Sarah Ann marries Joseph Richardson (Reading 2c 874)

Husband: 3

Joseph Richardson  

Born:

1876 St Giles, Reading - Jun quarter 2c / 387

&

Joseph committed suicide by hanging himself in the back bedroom. He thought he had terminal cancer but he was wrong!!

1932: March - A record has been found of a death of Elizabeth Colton - age 77 of Reading (2c 549) - was this Sarah's mother?

1954: Sarah died at her home in Reading aged 79 as 'Sarah Ann Richardson'
