Greetings Simon, What a thrill to hear from you. I have been wondering where all those Brantons in England were. I have quite a bit of information on our line of Brantons, back as far now as John Branton born abt. 1810 and married to Caroline ?, who was born abt. 1817, both in Beverley, Yorkshire.
So far I know they had one son named Charles christened Sept. 10, 1831 in Beveley, who married Elizabeth Smith Burningham (Buoringham)born abt. 1834 in Walkington, Yorks. They were married Jan. 1, 1853 in St. Mary's Parish Church in Sculcoates, Hull, Yorks. She died after 1901. Charles died September 10, 1866 in Hull. I believe they had three children: 1. John William (your gr. gr. grandfather)1855-1914 2. Anne Elizabeth ?1857-1870 3. William born between 1859-1860
I have very little on your branch, so I would welcome anything you would be willing to provide. I also have a couple of photos of your great grandparents and their two children Elsie and Ivy. I take it Elsie is your grandmother. Anyways, send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org we can start to share information and photos perhaps, as I do have a few of your Gr. Grandfather's generation and after. Thanks again for replying.
