Paul and Hilary In your family research into the DUTTON name in early 19th century London have you come across a Francis DUTTON and his wife Jane WINCHESTER?About 1834 they had a daughter Emma Augusta Dry DUTTON, who by 1864, when her first husband a Mr GRIFFITH died, was in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
I don't know when she came to Melbourne and whether she had married Mr GRIFFITH in Melbourne or elsewhere. By the end of 1864 she had remarried, to Thomas MOUBRAY, businessman and alderman of the town council of Melbourne. The latter died in 1891 and Emma died 20 September 1897.Emma left no children; her heir was her niece, Maud ATKINSON, daughter of G.W. ATKINSON.
Do Francis and Jane DUTTON and daughter Emma fit into your family trees?
