Richmond

 

George Shout (1771 – 1831)  had three children with his first wife – Jane Cains (1770 – bef 1809) namely Sarah (1794 – ), Helen (1796 – 1796), Edward (1798 – ). I haven’t been able to find a date for the death of Jane or her children other than Helen.

George  and his second wife Barbara Blenkison(or Blenkiron) (1777 – 1853) had family comprising Mary Ann (1817 – ), James (1820 – 1886), John (1823 – 1895).

As was mentioned on the Stokesley page, George had been in the North Yorkshire Militia, and on his retirement moved to Richmond. In 1824 he opened a school room , and was latterly a solicitors clerk.

James had 4 children with his first wife Mary Craven (1821 – 1858); Jane (1845 – ); James (1845 – ); George Clayton (1856 – 1858); Mark William (1857 – 1936) and a further 5 with his second wife Sarah Ann Clayton (nee Carter) (1825 – 1896) Tom (1859 – 1864); Arthur (1861 – 1940); George ( 1863 – 1928) ; William (1865 – 1939); Mary Emma (1867 – 1961). In the 1860s James and his family lived in Bradford where he worked as a cordwainer but by 1881 they had returned to Richmond.

John had 6 children with his wife Grace Ainsworth (1826 – 1894); George (1849 – 1929); James W (1853 -) of whom I can find no trace after the 1881 census; John (1859 – 1859); Frederick (1860 – 1860); Eliza (1862 – 1862); Louisa (1863 – 1863). John was a plumber and glazier but in 1864 he was found guilty of stealing 36 stones of lead from the roof of Hornby Castle, for which he was jailed for 4 months. Clearly they suffered the loss of several children within their first months of life. Unfortunately the price of death certificates from the Public Record Office precludes investigation of their demise.
