Does anyone know anthing about William Barton, born in Warrington Lancashire 1812/13, son of Joseph Barton (b 1792) and Mary Lowton (b 1791)?
In 1851 he appears on a UK census as a widower living in Foundry St, Warrington with his parents. I can find nothing about his first marriage but in 1857 he marries Charlotte Irlam of Flixton and has 3 children Elizabeth A Barton (b 1857 d 1923) Samuel Irlam Barton (b 1859 d 1928)and John Barton (b 1865).
I'm intrigued to find out where he was for the 1841 census and would love to know details about his previous marriage. If anyone has any information which might help me solve this mystery I would be very grateful. I'm drawing a blank using all my usual routes so I'm coming to the Barton experts!
