Hi steve
The family you found are related according to the
pr extractions i have and they add to the family any way
I should have mentioned his parents names which are
james lawton & charlotte nee barnes The problem with
the area is that there are many lawton families they
have been there for generations If it helps he had 3 brothers
thomas b 1814 william b 1819 mathew b 1821 and my james
b 1825
cheers mate
Don't know if this is the right family but it is the only James and Charlotte Lawton I can find living in the area


Freland Cross in the Dorrington, Dorrington

James Lawton 45 Ag Lab
Charlotte 55 wife
William 20 Son
Elizabeth 13 Dau

Thanks Emeltee
Thats the family James must be a servant
or aag/lab somewhere in the vicinity aged about 16 the
trouble is in that area shropshire stafford and cheshire
join up and as ive said he married a girl from buerton
near audlem cheshire which is close anyway
all the best
I think I may have found him.


Dimsdale, Chatterley, Staffs.

James Lawton 15 Male Servant Not born in county

He's the only James Lawton of the right agein Staffs, Salop and Cheshire who seems to fit. There are a couple in CVheshire but I discounted them as it said that they were born in Cheshire. Not always correct of course. I have an ancester who in 1841 says he's born in Lancashire and in 1851 says Stepney, London.
Anyway hope this helps
Cheers emeltee
The age is about right and one of my
ancestors was married there so i will try and check it out
thanks very much
