Geraldine Nora BARTON1

(1894 - 1979)
Geraldine Nora BARTON was born in Belgaum, Bombay, on 10 August 1894. She was the daughter of Lawrence Fleetwood BARTON (Captain in the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Scots) and Grace Elizabeth FIREBRACE2 and was baptised on 20 September 1894 at St Mary's Church in Belgaum.2
She was listed in the 1901 census at House no.11 in Augherinagh, Dripsey, Co. Cork; the census return shows her father, now a retired Army Major, was born in New Zealand, while her mother was born in Australia. Clearly the family had travelled widely, as her sister Mary Grace (aged 12) was born in Sth Africa, Sybil Dora (8) was born, like Geraldine, in India and her brother Ralph Firebrace (4) was born in Scotland. The household also included four local servants.3
She was listed in the 1911 census at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Scarborough, Yorkshire North, where she was staying with her father and sister Sybil.4

She married Charles Francis Linnaeus STEVENS, son of Charles Richard STEVENS and Emma Polglase JAMES, at St Jude in Kensington, London, Middlesex, on 3 January 1918. He described himself as a Captain in the 10th Lancers.1,5

She was awarded the Victory Medal and British War Medal for her service with the Voluntary Aid Detachment of the British Red Cross from 25 May to 26 Nov 1917.6

In 1930 Charles petitioned Geraldine Nora BARTON for divorce, citing Charles WINTER as co-respondent.7

Geraldine's second marriage was to Charles Edward Winter PURDON on 31 October 1930 in Kensington, London, Middlesex.8,9

She was widowed at age 58 on the death of her husband Charles on 4 May 1953.10,11,9

Geraldine died on 25 January 1979 at Castle Ward in Strangford, Co. Down, at age 84.12

Her will was probated on 17 May 1979 with the estate valued at £103,443.12

Janet BEATON1

(1785 - 1867)
Father*Lauchlan BEATON2
Mother*Marion McINNES2
Janet BEATON was born at Erray in Isle of Mull, Argyllshire, in 1785.2 She was baptised on 14 July 1785 at Kilninian & Kilmore, Argyllshire.2

Janet BEATON was also known as Janet LEITCH as the BEATON and LEITCH names are somewhat inter-changeable in Argyll. Why this is so is unclear, there being several theories -possibly it is a reference to the BEATON doctors use of leeches and it has also been suggested that it is derived from the Old English name for a doctor being 'laece' > Leche > Leach/Leitch, although the relevance of OE words to the Mull area is questionable. Regardless of the reason, Janet, although baptised and married as a BEATON, is referred to in her husband's death entry and other documents as Janet LEITCH.

She married John McINNES, son of Martin McINNES and Janet Flora BLACK, in Kilninian & Kilmore, Argyllshire, on 9 February 1813.3,4

She was listed in the 1851 census as Head of Family at Church St (Sth side) in Tobermory, Argyllshire; he stated he was a Greenwich Pensioner, but his wife said she was a "catechist's wife" - this fits with the occupation given on his death entry.5

She was widowed on the death of her husband John on 17 January 1855.6
She was listed as the mother of Angus McINNES in the 1861 Census in Tobermory, Argyllshire, and was a widow.7

Janet died on 29 August 1867 in Tobermory, Argyllshire, of 'a month ailing - no medical attendant.8'
