The Sweetten Family

Edward Maurice Evans Sweetten

Birth: 28 November 1850

Baptism: 3 November 1854, in St Benet Gracechurch and St Leonard Eastcheap, London, England

Father:
Maurice Evans

Mother: Jane Baker Sweetten

Notes: Edward's sister, Mary Jane, dropped the Sweetten from her name by the 1881 census - she probably did it after the marriage of her parents in 1857 - and likely Edward also dropped the Sweetten although I have not found evidence of it.

Jane Baker (Sweetten) Evans

Birth: 1835/6, in London, England

Father:
John Baker Sweetten

Children:
Death: 1909, in Wandsworth district, London, England, aged 76

Notes: In proceedigs against insolvent debtors, this note about Jane's father is found in the London Gazette 21 March 1828 p578:
Sweetten, John Baker (sued and committed as John Baker, and commonly called and known by that name), formerly of Change-Court, Strand, Middlesex, then of Bond-Street, Lambeth, Surrey, then of Little James-Street, Gray's-Inn-Lane, then of Baldwin's-Gardens, Gray's-Inn-Lane, there keeping a Tin and Hardware Shop, and late of Nortli-Crescent-Mews, Burton-Crescent, Middlesex, Jobbing Bricklayer, Plasterer, and Slater.

which leads me to wonder if Jane also commonly used just Baker and dropped the Sweeten
