Default Arthur Burton

According to the 1939 Register, Arthur was born 24th December 1877.

On the 1921 Census he is with wife Annie Pauline (Basham) and daughter Daphne and one other. This states he was born at Bunwell, Norfolk, which Genuki says is in the Depwade registration district.

He married Annie in 1918. I don't know whether he was married before.

His life before this is a mystery. Any help appreciated.

Some public trees on Ancestry have him as the Arthur Emmanuel Burton who died Oct-Dec 1975 Havering district, date of birth on the death index 24 Dec 1878 so it almost fits with the 1939 Register. I know this is after, not before, but it gives us a middle name.

Could be completely unconnected, but there is an Arthur Emmanuel Betts birth registration Jan-Mar 1879 Depwade, MMN Blake.

I did wonder that Burton wasn't his birth name, Kate.
Thanks, I'll investigate.

It's a shame the 1918 marriage to Annie isn't online.

There is an interesting newspaper story where one Arthur Betts, in 1905 of Unthank Road, Norwich, lodged with a Joseph Hardiment and then ran off with his wife Rosanna.

I don't seem to be able to find either of them in 1911. Joseph went back to live with his parents.

Ooh, thanks, Phoenix.

Caroline Blake had children with William Betts while his first wife was alive. In 1861 she was a dairy maid on his farm. They married in Q4 1877.

That's him - he was a miller.

Interesting news on the name Burton!

William Betts' probate 1884:

https://www.ancestry.co.uk/imageview...0472?pId=16175

... was proved by .... and Alfred Burton Betts of Tibenham in the same County the Nephew ....

Burton was a family name.

Do you think we have proved that Arthur Emmanuel Burton and Alfred Emmanuel Betts are one and the same person?
