Thank you John for your reply. I have Wattons appearing on both sides of my family.
Ann Maria Watton (Maria) born about 1842, the daughter of Richard a hawker. She married Thomas Hyde, a Ruiton boatman/hawker on 8 Dec 1862 at St Thomas Dudley.
The other one is: Hilma Watton a fruit and veg merchant born about 1898, the daughter of Joseph William. She married when aged 44 to Alfred Bird Brown on 24 Aug 1942. At this time she was living in Vale Street Ruiton Upper Gornal.
I would appreciate any information on any of these people. Thank you, Ann.
