Re: Agnes Whitton

The 2 entries on FREEBMD for Agnes Whitton 1856 take you to the same page.

It appears that Full Name followed by Surname should find him. https://www.thegaze...

In 1871 they are in Tonbridge with son Frank Edward 2 In 1881 they are in St Giles in the Field London ...

The first was in 1858 and the 2nd in 1865. You have the 1858 one as yours with John's father as Edward (a gardener) and Eliza...

Re: Nathan Abbott Innkeeper of Bold

The manorial Records of Bold Hall may assist you. According to the MDR Cheshire Archives has a couple of collections containing maps from 1702 ( a bit early) and 1727-1730.
