For quite some time I have been aware of incorrect data added to my GEDCOM for the family of Joseph CARTER 1872-1959 (the second husband of my great grandmother Mary Maria CARTER (née MAPLETHORPE) 1878-1964). For the last couple of years I have not found the time to manage these pages and so this issue was never fixed. Yesterday evening I decided to correct the issue with Joseph CARTER. At the back of my mind I seemed to remember he was born near Spurn Point in what was the East Riding of Yorkshire. My memory also flagged up the north-east of Lincolnshire, though it took me the best part of a couple of hours to remember the area I had in mind goes by the name Isle of Axholme.

Well after several hours and many online searches I had failed to make any progress, until eventually, yet another online search provided the data I was seeking. Unbelievably this was my own web site.

The story is this: some time in the past I had transcribed an England and Wales Census 1901 entry for Joseph CARTER and added it to my website. Since I decline to pay for Census information to which the tax payer has already contributed, I seem to remember my sister had at some point provided me with a few pages of 1901 Census data that she had purchased. This included the data regarding Joseph CARTER which I will republish here:

FHJ Ref: 036

So having established the correct family, his birth place at Sunk Island and the name of his father, a few searches soon revealed a marriage for his father. Joseph CARTER married Martha KIRKWOOD, on the 14th May 1868 at Patrington, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The names, dates and places are what I would expect so I am confident enough to add this family to my GEDCOM.

This is the link to the family of Joseph CARTER and Martha CARTER (née KIRKWOOD).

Recently I scanned and uploaded to the gallery more photographs from our family collection. The photograph illustrating this article was provided by my aunt and has been scanned from a photographic copy of an original, hence it is a little 'grainy'.

This photograph features my paternal grandmother Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON) 1901-1983, her sister Alice DIXON 1899-1959, and brother Charles Edward DIXON 1898-1917. These were the children of Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 and Mary Maria DIXON (née Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE) 1878-1964.

Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON) 1901-1983 my paternal grandmother was born at the village of Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby), Lincolnshire on the 5th of October 1901. Her father Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 was born at Horncastle, Lincolnshire in 1869. Her mother Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964 (sometimes spelt MABLETHORPE) was born at the village of Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby), Lincolnshire during 1878. Ivy DIXON 1901-1983 was the youngest of the three children, Charles Edward DIXON 1898-1917 being born at Marton, Lincolnshire, during March 1898, and Alice DIXON 1899-1959 born at Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby), Lincolnshire during December 1899.

Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 died of Tuberculosis on the 20th of November 1906 at Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby), my grandmother being only 5 years of age.

Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964 eventually married again, her second husband being Joseph CARTER 1872-1959, born 1872 at Sunk Island, Hull, East Yorkshire. They were married in June 1913.

Ivy experienced several sad events during her life:

1) Samuel her father died aged 37 when Ivy was just 5 years of age.
2) Ivy was 15 years of age when her brother Charles Edward died during World War I. To read more about this event please click here.
3) Wilfred JACKLIN 1926-1926 her 2nd child and my father's younger brother died shortly after birth in December 1926.

Updates:
2016-10-30 In my original post I attributed details of another Joseph CARTER. The details are now attributed to the correct Joseph CARTER.

This photograph of my great grandparents Mary Maria CARTER (née Mary Maria MAPLETHORPE 1878-1964) and Joseph CARTER 1872-1959 was probably taken circa 1960 outside the Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch which stands on the junction of Trent Port Road with High Street, Marton, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.

Mary Maria married twice: her first marriage to Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 took place at the Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch on the 15th of September 1897. Samuel DIXON 1869-1906 died from Tuberculosis on the 20th of November 1906 at Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby), Lincolnshire, at the relatively young age of 37 years.

This marriage produced 3 children:

Charles Edward DIXON 1898-1917
Alice DIXON 1899-1959
Ivy DIXON 1901-1983 born 5th October 1901 (my grandmother)

After the death of Samuel DIXON 1869-1906, Mary married Joseph CARTER 1872-1959 during June 1913.

This marriage produced 2 children:

Harold CARTER 1913-1977 born September 1913
Katheleen LOCK (née Kathleen CARTER 1917-Deceased) born June 1917

Notes:
MAPLETHORPE or MABLETHORPE? This branch of the family seems to use either of these surnames dependant on the generation.
