Carlton Family Research

Journal by C_Bishop

Hi All

I have been researching my Carlton surname.
My Great Grandfather Alan Durward Carlton was born in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1902. His parents were Alfred John Carlton and Fanny Louise Dudley Carlton (nee Johnston) They were both born in Melbourne, Australia. They came to NZ between 1900 and 1902 and left for Australia sometime after 1909. They had 2 other sons, Jack, born 1900, Aus, (who stayed in NZ with Alan) and Ronald who was born 1909 and returned to Australia with Alfred and Fanny.

Alfred's parents were George John Carlton and Jean Farquharson. Both George and Jean immigrated to Australia, George from Gloucestershire, England, and Jean from Dalkeith, Scotland. They married in 1859 in Victoria, Aus.

George and Jean had 5 children. (including Alfred)
They were:
Frances Elizabeth Carlton
George Farquharson Carlton
Isabella Catherine Carlton
David Stewart Carlton.

George John Carlton, born 1831 in Bristol, Gloucestershire parents were James Carlton and Frances Wagstaff. Both were born in Ireland. I have not been able to crack where in Ireland so this is my brickwall :-(

I do know that they had 3 other children
All born in Bristol.
William Carlton(disappears between census's 1851-1861 like George does)
Jane Ann Carlton,
Catherine Carlton.

All born between 1827-1833.

I have not been able to find any marriages for any of this family (including parents, maybe married in Ireland?)

Would love to hear from anyone who may be linked to anyone in this line!

Hi, Regarding Wagstaff: My Gr Gr Grandmother, Annie Wagstaff was b 1852 in County Cork, Ire., Dau of Robert and Anne"Nancy" (Good) Wagstaff. I have no idea if there is a connection to your Frances Wagstaff but this gives you a possible location. Also Stephen Heard is a Wagstaff researcher and may be able to help you. His e-mail address is:

Good luck,
