  • Notes 
    • Born in Liverpool in about 1816 son of Joseph and Mary Wharton. He married Mary Ann Dennis in 1839 whilst living in Pendleton, Lancashire. He was sentenced to 6 months in prison (presumably hard labour) for Embezzlement in 1842. He was a book keeper, and a traveller for a brewer and was made bankrupt in 1843. His children subsequently were put in the workhouse. He died what appears to be penniless in 1849.
