|Text||I am a descendant of Charlotte Buxton who I believe was Francis' sister.|
Charlotte married Edward William Henry. Charlotte named a son Francis
'Frank' Buxton Henry for her brother. Charlotte and Francis were the
children of Richard Butler Buxton and Mary Harris. They emigrated from
London in the 1830s. Richard died shortly after coming to this country.
Mary traveled back and forth to England at various times with her
children, including Francis but did settle in NYC. There were other
siblings. Francis was born in London, Charlotte was the only child born in
Francis was born 16 Nov 1824 and baptized 3 Jan 1827 at St. Olave's,
Bermondsey, London. Charlotte was born in 1834. Their mother Mary lived
with Francis and his wife Maria until his death, she is then found living
in an old person's home in Newburgh. Do you live in NY? Because I need to
find someone who can search out a copy of Mary's death certificate.
Hopefully we will find her parents' names. She lived into her 90s. I
believe I found her in a city directory around 1898/99. Mary was born in
Richard Butler Buxton's family is very interesting. His father was Thomas
Habgood Buxton (son of Samuel Buxton and Miriam Habgood). Samuel was a
wholesale haberdasher in the City of London in partnership with his wife's
relative William Habgood. Take a look at the following website for a
fascinating look at this relationship. Still not sure of Miriam's exact
relationship to William even after contacting the author of the info at
