hi guys, thanks for finding John William's cemetary, thats going to save me a lot of time! If you see a 30 something woman lurking around your local grave yard, don't panic, it's just me!
I shall attempt to explain the sutton / Jucanwich story....
John William Sutton married Margaret Easter 1856 at St Johns Old Haymarket. Margaret's sister Louisa marries and has two sons with Matthew Jucanwich (a mariner), Matthew dies of bronchitis Sept 1860, their youngest son John is born in December 1860, their eldest son Charles is taken in by John and Margaret, I have been unable to find what happened to the youngest son. The widdowed Louisa marries John Sutton's brother Thomas in 1865 and they have two children (Thomas had been married before, marriage cert claims he is a widow but I think his first wife is still alive and well living with their two children in 1871!)
Margaret died in Benleidi street June 1871
John William marries Mary Thomas in 1874 (their son Alfred is born out of wedlock in 1873!)
and so they all live happily ever after....
When John William Sutton died, he left a large amount to his adopted son Charles including his buisness in William Moult Street.
I have been in contact with the decendants of Charles Juncawich (they are still Suttons - imagine their surprise to discover their surname is actually Jucanwich)
and the decendants of Thomas's children from his first marriage all left for Australia - their decendants are still there.
I have totally failed to find the origins of the surname Jucanwich though!
No one told me when I started the Geneology thing two years ago that it would take over my entire life! (and my partner never expected to spend our holidays searching around graveyards in north England - I think he was hoping to go to Paris)
Many thanks guys
