red mail McGLASHON And BAKER
Seeking information on David McGLASHON, baptised on 26 July 1812 at Iwade in Kent, and Mary BAKER, born c1820, probably at East Ham, then in Essex. They married at Bromley St Leonard parish church on 13 July 1840 and had the following children, of whom several died in infancy or childhood: William (1841); Hugh (1843-1856), James (1844), Mary Ann (1845), Alexander (1848), David (1849-1851); John (1850-1851); Mary (1853), David (1855), John Thomas (1860), George (1864) and Thomas (1866). Family anecdotal evidence suggests that David's parents, William and Ann McGLASHON, came south by sea from the Nairnshire area of Scotland sometime between 1795 and 1805 (approx) in the company of a Hugh McINTOSH and that William and Hugh worked on the construction of the East India and London Docks. Hugh apparently became a millionaire - or at least the contemporary equivalent of one. There is no concrete information at all about Mary BAKER except that her father was George BAKER and the family might have come from East or West Ham, which at that time were just over the border into Essex.
