This John Shout was married to Anne Twislington, and was a ship owner in Portsmouth. I believe he originated in Yorkshire, probably the son of John and Mary of Stockton
His first two children were possibly named after voyages he had made eg
Mary Montevideo (1808 – ) married Wonderful Chertsey in 1832 in Shoreditch, London. He was a glass maker but no further details have been found in census or death records. Wonderful was a member of the Guild of Glassmakers but their information is also limited
James Tagus (1809 Lisbon – 1872) ; Pawnbroker and silversmith in Knightsbridge, London married Jane Margaret Page 1840 in Shoreditch.
They had Caroline Ann; James Tagus; William; Christopher, and Catherine
the remainder of John and Anne’s children- all born later- had more “normal” names.
Ann Elizabeth (1815 – 1860);
The first three children were baptised in Portsmouth but the rest in London
Jane Sarah (1817 – );
Margaret Rebecca (1819 – ); married John Bland Smith in Shoreditch 1843
George Richards (1821 – );
Thomas Hammond (1824 – 1879). Mahogany importer and dealer. I have details of an action against him in the Court of Chancery in dispute with his business partner. More details to come…
There is also a supposed son John ( – 1842) whose date of birth I cannot find. The only link I have made is that in his will dated 1841 he leaves everything to his sister Mary Montivideo Chertsey ( changed a few months later in a codicil to include Elizabeth Palmer a widow of Bishopwearmouth). He died in Bishopwearmouth.
The family moved to London, living in the Battersea /Lambeth area. John appears to have had a number of business interests including a gravel barge, which is advertised for sale after his death.
John was recorded as the owner of a ship General Greenfield or Grinfield. Presumably named after the General who commanded British troops in the Windward and Leeward Islands in the Caribbean during the Napoleonic Wars.
