Janet Denton I am actually looking for information for my husband's family tree. Here is what I know so far:

Thomas Daniel Denton
- shoe maker and we believe in the miliary as well but unsure of this
- his wife Susannah Partridge lived in England - Rushden Northampshire
- He was born around 1827 and died around 1894.

Walter Herbert Denton
- Son of Thomas and Susannah Partridge
- Shoemaker
- Date of Birth: 1854
- Married to Sarah Young
- Residence: Rushden, Northamptonshire
- We believe he did some service in the miliary too

Herbert Walter Denton
- Son of Walter Herbert Denton and Sarah Young
- Date of Birth: 1875 Jan 21
- Date of Death: 1942 July 17
- Married to Emily Wood who was an O'Connor prior a previous marriage to someone named Wood. They had two daughters Ethel and Doris or Dorothy.

- Reg # 4401 - 4th Battalion - Rank: SGT

- Reg # 11540 (this maybe the Canadian Reg. #)

- Sept 27, 1900 - Invitation "The Warrant Officers, Staff Sergeants and Sergeants of the 1st Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, present their compliments to Private Denton and request the pleasure of his company to a supper and smoking concert to be held in the Sergents Mess on Thusday, Sept 27, 1900, to celebrate the gallant Defence of Ladysmith 1899-1900 by the British Garrison of which he formed a part and to welcome the detachment back to the Regiment again". Signed: S.A. Smith, Ar.-Sergt. Pres. Corn, Sergeants Mess, 1st Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment. Supper at 8 PM

- October 3, 1900 – 1st Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment – Invitation

“The members of the Corporals Mess of the 1st Battalion Bedfordshire Reg present their compliments to Private Denton and request the pleasure of his company to a supper and smoking concert to be held in the Corporal’s Rooms on Wednesday 3rd October 1900, to celebrate the gallant Defense of Ladysmith 1899-1900 by the British Garrison of which he formed a part and to welcome him back to the Regiment again.”

- May 1, 1915 - Pay book shows he has a credit
- Nov. 13, 1915 - Promoted to Rank of "Shoemaker SGT"
- We have an card "Compliments of the Season and all good wishes from W.O. Staff-Sergeants & Sergeants 4th Battalion. 1st Brigade Canadian Expeditionary Force, X-1914, New Year 1915.

NOTE #1: Seems all the folks connected were in someway involved in shoemaking!

NOTE #2: We have a death notice card about a 'BAKER DENTON" he died Dec 3 1910 (was married to a Hannah Hackney) and from what I can find out he is the son of IRA and MATILDA DENTON. Don't know the connect

NOTE #3: Everyone seems to be from Rushden, Northamptonshire, England.

Steve - I am located in a very little town on Georgian Bay called Thornbury in Ontario Canada.

Again - thanks for any help you can give me. I do appreciate it believe me.

I am very very new at this family search thing.
