Did Your Relatives Ever Talk of Louie Middleton ?
My great-grandfather and great-uncle used to run the White Lion Inn, in Barton-upon-Humber Market Place from the late 1800's to the mid 1900's.
I am researching family history and am looking for any information about Louie Middleton in the Barton-upon-Humber area. Louie, who may have also been called Louisa, Louise or similar, has also been referred to as Mrs Louie Middleton. Louie was born about 1881 and died on 31 July 1926 aged 45 years. Louie is known to have helped with work at the White Lion Inn at Barton, which was run for many years by Foster Middleton and later, his son Fred, who never married and died a bachelor. Louie is thought to be buried in an unmarked grave in Barton Cemetery, but an inscription about Louie was later put on the gravestone of Fred Middleton in order that she should be remembered. A search of the 1901 census did not find any matches for Louie Middleton who would have been about 20 years old at that time, so if Middleton was her married name, she may have still been single at the time of the census. A look through the Barton Parish Church Records has failed to find a marriage of any Barton Middleton male to a Louie, Louisa or Louise. This leaves the thought that if Louie Middleton was her married name, she could have married under another religion in the town or even married in another town or village. Louie may not even have been married. If Louie was married does anyone know her maiden name ?
There are no close relatives still alive to ask, and research into her background has come to a halt.
I would appreciate any knowledge of her life and history.
