Surnames: Preston, Stower
John W Preston was born either 1844 or 1850 in Ripon N Yorks. In 1881 he was living in West Ham London and was an out-of-work sailor. His wife Mary Ann ne Stower came from Weymouth Dorset and their eldest child was born there. Her father was also a sailor. Who were John's parents and which birth year is correct? When did he arrive in Weymouth? What caused the family to move to London (there by 1878)? Any help appreciated.

You might have already received a reply on this. I am currently researching the Prestons and I show John W.'s parents as Martin Preston (bc 1828 Ripon and married 6 Aug 1849) and Mary Ann (nee Wright - bc 1831 at Laverton, Yorkshire). This Martin's father was also Martin Preston (bc 1791 Yorkshire) and his wife was also a Mary (bc 1786).

I would be interested in sharing information with the hope that we can help each other.

Hi Christine.

John W was my 2x Great Grandfather. I had found the two Martins and Mary Ann, but I thought the elder Martin was married to an Elizabeth. I'm happy to share what info I have. You can contact me at kimreeve@supanet.com

Look forward to hearing from you.
