My name is Marilyn Briggs nee Garton. My great grandfather was born in 1853 in St. Mary's, Hull (STMY/7/241). His name was William Garton. He married Frances Simpson in 1887 (HRO/30/141) in the 1901 census they had 5 children listed. William (21)Ada (17) Herbert (15) James (8) and Arthur; who was my grandad(5). Only James and Arthur were born after the wedding. Frances was a R.C. and there would have been problems for them marrying in church? William Jnr became a Police inspector, Herbert died in the First World War, Arthur and James also joined the police force. My grandad; Arthur Garton (born in 1895) married Lillian Wright. My father was Arthur Garton Jnr, alias Sonny (born 1921) and his siblings were Eileen and Harry. John Garton of Appletree Village did some digging for me a while ago and suggests we may go back to John, Augusta etc. - Any one out there who descends from Will, Ada or James? My half brother Tim Garton has also sent messages to this site.
