Marriage of a parentWilliam SuttonAnn MillsView this family
about 1863 (aged 4 years)
Text:

...there was no marriage date recorded of William Sutton and Ann Tuxford, hence, some of the children's birth certificates show the childrens surname as Mills,Tuxford, Sutton, and even one without a surname at all.

Text:

It is known that Ann Mills went to live with William Sutton after the death of her husband William Tuxford, who was reportedly kicked in the head by his horse. We have reason to believe the horse was spooked and that William and Ann may have been seeing each other secretly before William's death as his death was under suspicious circumstances.

July 15, 1865 (aged 7 years)

The second child Emmeline Tuxford 1865-1956 must have been William Sutton's even though she carries the surname of her by-then-deceased father.

The third child Matilda Ann born 1866, who married John Alfred Field born 3 June 1866, carried, according to John Alfred Field's death certificate 1913/3021, the surname of Sutton, which would have been legally correct.
