Death Certificate - I have an 1839 death certificate for a John William Walton (Ironmonger) who died on December 7th. at the Sign of the Golden Cross, in Charring Cross, London. He was 45 years of age. No conclusive proof that this is my John Walton yet.
Between 1823 & 1826, Pigot's Directory has a John Walton in business as an Oilman at 16 Bridge Road, Lambeth. Again, no conclusive proof.
The I.G.I. has a John William Walton christened 16th. April, 1789 at St. Andrew Undershaft, London. Parents James & Ann Walton.The names James & Ann incidentally, were given to two of his children.
