I was wondering if Thomas J. Wharton and Thomas J. Wynne are in deed one in the same person.
It would be interesting to know when Thomas joined the army?
My thinking is that Thomas J. Wharton may have changed his name when he joined the army for one reason or another. Perhaps his family disaproved, or he was too young? It wouldn't be the first time that this has happened.

Family Tree is owned by:- Owner: DonHalbert54

They also have a photo of Lillian Maria Lathan, daughter Ruby and all of Ruby's family.

Birth registered in 1899 Maryhill, Lanarkshire
( There were Army Barracks in Maryhill)

Only death that I could find:
Thomas Wynne age 53. Death registered in Liberton, Midlothian 1908.

Do you know his mother's maiden name?

Hi everyone, Many thanks for your swift replies.There are a couple more details. Lily's children are named Wharton so I was wondering whether T J Wynne died and she married T J Wharton?
I have endeavoured to answer your questions below.
I have not found him on any census after his marriage. Lily died on 11th July 1937 in Stanton St. John, Oxfordshire. Her surname at the time was Wharton. Please can you tell me Catherine, what the tree name on ancestry was where you found the photo of Thomas.No, I don't have any marriage certificates of any of his children. Kind regards, Barbara

Found this on familysearch:-

Harry Whartonwynne in household of Harry Whartonwynne, "England and Wales Census, 1901"

Citing this Record

"England and Wales Census, 1901," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X9YK-KSJ : accessed 10 Dec 2012), Harry Whartonwynne, Stanton St John, Oxfordshire, England; citing (http://Findmypast.co.uk : 2011); PRO RG 13, county, Headington registration district, Wheatley subdistrict, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.


............so looked at the original copy of the 1901 census and Lily's name is noted as being Wharton Wynne, as are all the children with her, so it does look to be the correct family.

Also from the ancestry tree:-

Ruby Florence Beatrice Wharton
Birth 28 Nov 1893 in Calcutta, West Bengal, India
Death 1 Aug 1935 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

As the 13th Hussars served also in India, it is also possible that Thomas died in India and his wife remarried over there to someone called Wharton ?

The 13th Hussars served in the 1899-1901 Boer War, so possible he died then?

Catherine

Catherine Report 10 Dec 2012 14:36

I was trying to find the family in 1901 and came accross a tree on ancestry that seems to have this family but there is a lot of conflicting information:-

Thomas James Wharton
Birth Mar 1860 in Headington, Oxfordshire, England
Death

Lillian Maria Lathan
Birth 1859 in Dereham, Norfolk, England
Death 11 Jul 1937 in Stanton St. John Oxfordshire, England


Note daughter Emma form 1891 census:-

Emma Bessie Maria Wharton (AKA Wynne)
Birth 19 Feb 1887 in Colchester, Essex, England
Death 14 Sept 1937 in Derby Road, Reading, Berkshire, England

.......but they don't have son William noted as child, but they do have the following as other children:-

Ruby Florence Beatrice Wharton 1893 – 1935
Thirza Emily Ellen Wharton 1895 – 1945
Harry Wharton 1897 –
Frank John Wharton 1899 – 1977

They also have a photo of Thomas in uniform, so don't really know what to think of it?

Do you know if your Thomas had any other children apart form Emma and William that show in the 1891 census?

Catherine

Catherine Report 10 Dec 2012 14:13

Do you have the marriage certificate of any of his children?

If he is noted as deceased, then you know he died before the date of the marriage, if not, then you know he died after the date of the marriage, which may help find, or confirm a possible death record.

Have you found him on any census after his marriage ?

When and where did his wife die ?

Barbara Report 10 Dec 2012 13:14

Hi can anyone do me a death lookup please for Thomas James Wynne. He married Lily Lathan on the 15/Nov/1886. He was born about 1859 and was in the 13th Hussars. He was married in Colchester and the certificate says he was in barracks at the time of the marriage and aged 27. I also know he was in Scotland while in the 13th Hussars but I can find no record of his death. Many thanks, Barbara
