Hi,

I am trying to establish where my grandmother came from to England.
I note that an Ida Minnie Charlton was born to William Charlton and Rebecca in 1879 in Foster, Luzerne, Pennsylvania. Does anyone know if she came to England. (William was a coal- miner and emigrated to Pennsylvania c1877)
Any assistance appreciated.

I'd try the messageboards at ancestry.com; you're more likely to find someone who knows the answer to your question there.

I'm a Charlton but don't know much about my dad's family other than that they settled in Ohio.

Hello. I have been researching this Charlton family and I believe I have discovered their place of origin in England. Apparently Thomas F. Charlton was born about 1827 in the town of Houghton le Spring in what was then Durham County, England (now a part of Tyne and Wear). He was enumerated in the 1851 Census of England close to Pittington, northeast of the City of Durham, living in Elemore Vale. Thomas indicated that his wife, Margaret, had been born in the town of Long Marton in Westmorland County, England, and that their son, William, had been born in the town of Hallgarth in Durham County, England. According to the 1900 U.S. Census of Luzerne County, Thomas and his wife Margaret and their son William mirgrated in 1852 to America. They were first enumerated in Schuylkill County, PA (Margaret was erroneously listed as "Marry" in the transcription of the 1860 Census), and also lived in Schuylkill County in the 1870 Census. The family moved between 1870 and 1880 to neighboring Luzerne County. Thomas F. Charlton was buried in Hazleton, Luzerne County, PA in 1904, while Margaret was buried there in 1914. I hope this has helped you!

Sincerely,
Zane D. Perry, Virginia Beach, VA

P.S. This research was done for John Justin Dormi of Virginia Beach, who is the son-in-law of Lawrence William Charlton of Newark, New Jersey. Lawrence William Charlton is the son of Lawrence Clare Charlton, son of Thomas Charlton, son of Thomas F. Charlton, son of Thomas F. Charlton of Durham County, England and Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

Have now discovered that Ida's father was James Parker and that she was 'adopted' (stated on her marriage cert) probably between 1870 and 1880 by George Charlton (who was born in England and had married a Jane Kirk and emigrated to US.) This was in New York State. They all returned to England.
