red mail Dugan, Poynton, Robinson & Scattergood
I have been researching a distant branch of the family, the Dugans, who lived in Ashby de la Zouch from the mid-1860's. James Dugan (Abt 1837 - 1897) was an Irish hawker who married Sarah Poynton (Sept 1838 - ), daughter of Thomas Poynton (1812 - 1822) & Hannah Banton (Abt 1814 - 1887). James Dugan & Sarah Poynton had six children: James (1861 - 1937), Frances (1869 - 1950), Elizabeth (1872 - ), Thomas (1874 - ), John Michael (1878 - 1942), and Joseph (1883 - ). James Dugan (1861 - 1937) married Alice Robinson (nee Scattergood) in December 1893. She was born in Netherseal and had previously been married to James Robinson (1862 - 1892), a native of Ashby de la Zouch. James Robinson and Alice had two sons, George (Abt 1887 - ) and William (Abt 1888 - 1896) and a daughter called Rose Annie or Rosannah (1892 - ). James Dugan & Alice also had two sons, Charles (1894 - 1937) and Thomas Scattergood Dugan (1896 - 1967). In the 1901 Census, James Dugan is shown as being married, but living in a lodging house apart from Alice and their sons. Alice, the boys and Rosannah (as she is shown in the Census) are living with James' brother, Thomas. Thomas passes himself off as Alice's husband and James' children are shown as his and Alice's sons. By the 1911 Census, the boys are back living with James, who is shown as their father, and there is nothing to be seen of Alice. If anyone has any more information on the fascinating history of this family, I'd love to hear from you.
