Charles Walton

???? - 1839

Claimant or beneficiary


Husband of Mary Ann Walton, the daughter of Ellys Anderson Stephens and sister of Frances Layton, Maria Charlotte Sperling and Sophia Lucy Marriott (all of whom q.v.). Mary Ann Walton counterclaimed with her husband Charles Walton of Haverhill Essex on a number of awards in Barbados, including Byde Mill.  She appears to have been on a different basis than her sisters, counterclaiming separately: it is assumed the claims were settled amicably.

  1. Letters of administration granted to Mary Walton widow of Major Charles Walton late of Haverhill 1839.

  2. Death at Westbourne Place Eaton Square of Mary Ann Walton, aged 70, relect of Major Charles Walton 4th light Dragoons and eldest daughter of the late Ellys Anderson Stephens of Bower Hall Steeple Bumpstead Essex.

  3. There is no apparent church record of a marriage of Mary Ann Stephens (nor is there for her sisters).  It is conceivable that the Mary Ann Bellion who married Charles Walton at Westminster 12/11/1815 was the same woman, then widowed, although the witnesses were surnamed Bellion too.


T71/895 Barbados claim no. 555B. T71/897 Barbados claim no. 2135A. T71/898 Barbados claim no. 3777 (Byde Mill).
