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:
This marriage produced 2 children:
Harold CARTER 1913-1977 born September 1913
Katheleen LOCK (née Kathleen CARTER 1917-Deceased) born June 1917
MAPLETHORPE or MABLETHORPE? This branch of the family seems to use either of these surnames dependant on the generation.
