NORTON Family, Cauldwell, Derbyshire

 Joseph NORTON & Ann BAXTER Family Group Sheet

This family belonged to the General Baptist faith. Consequently, I have not located the baptisms of some of the children, so have relied on census ages, where found, to determine their possible order. The birthdate for my great-great grandfather, John, comes from a family document compiled by his son, Francis; birthdates for his younger brothers, William and George, were taken from their respective Baptist obituaries.

According to his 1873 obituary, their son, George, was the sixth son (and the seventh child, in order of birth) of the eleven children of Joseph & Ann NORTON. From this I infer that there are two unknown sons and a daughter, one son and the daughter being older than George. According to the same source, two of these children "died quite young", but I am yet to find any further reference to them, or to whichever child - male or female - attained adulthood. Given that he or she was not acknowledged in Joseph's will, [s]he must have died prior to 1837.
