I thought today I would start to tackle one of my boxes full of ‘to scan’ old photos and other ephemera. I have loads queueing to still scan and research thankfully!
These school reports looked interesting and so I started to compile a quick family tree this morning. The school reports refer to a boy called Robin Charles Hendrick Wolton, born in Doncaster in 1934 to parents Charles Sidney Wolton and Nellie Crawford/Craufurd Hendrick. Robin died aged 75 on 13 June 2010 in Tuckton, Bournemouth, Dorset. But what happened to him in life?
Father Charles was a Baker when the couple married in 1925 in St Peters Church, Belsize Park, Camden, London. Then after described as a Caterer and Confectioner. Here above is the brief family tree I have compiled today on Ancestry, do any of these names appear in your family tree?
Oh, dear, these reports are not good are they. It looks like he didn’t like school at all, was he very unhappy there? I wonder why?
I would love to know what happened to Robin. Do you know? Was Robin part of your family? What career did Robin choose I wonder? Did he marry? Did he have a family? Was he your Ancestor?
Any help would be fantastic, comment on here or comment on Twitter or my Facebook page, thank you.

UPDATE Information from lovely followers on Twitter and Facebook:
Thank you so much Simon, Hazel and especially Chris, who even found a super picture of Charles Henrick! I really appreciate all your help x
Firstly his death in the Daily Echo in 2010, sadly doesn’t mention what family he has?
Lastly: ‘A bit of a funny event when Robert appeared at Hampstead Petty Sessions in 1907, summoned for selling milk with 10% less butter fat. Charles was presiding as Magistrate. Robert mitigated that the milk had not been stirred. He was found guilty. Charles declared an interest‘.
Thanks again everyone, some really interesting information here to add to the Wolton Family records.
Till next time then………..
