My maternal GGrandfather was Jonathan Allison Horn(e) and he was born in Nottingham about 1836. He married in Canada in 1863 had children there and returned to England about 1876.

His surname is sometimes shown as Horn and at other times Horne.

If anyone can find any details about him between his birth and 1863, I would like hear it.

Thanks, Ann65, this all helps. It appears that in 1851 Jonathan was living with his grandparents in Doncaster. Any suggestions how I can find the names of his parents?
Thanks, again.

From Nottinghamshire baptisms cd:

Sneinton 26 May 1833 Jonathan Allison HORN son Jonathan & Maria Hayward St

Basford born 26 March bap 8 May 1836 Martha Ann HORN daughter Jonathan & Maria, Lacemaker

No marriage for Jonathan & Maria in Notts Marriage Index that I could find and no burials in the Burial Index.

Ancestry is down at the moment, so can't check the early census records for you but will do so as soon as possible.

I have checked the 1841 census for you and it appears that Jonathan Allison HORN is with his grandparents in Doncaster in that census as well:

HO107/1340/5, folio folio 32, page 26
Priory Place, No 2

John ALLISON 60 Schoolmaster Born in the county yes
Martha do 70 yes
John do 40 yes
Martha do 30 yes
Jonathan HORN 8 Pupil no
John SAMPSON 12 do yes
Alfred HUSKISSON 20 Articled Architect yes
Henry WARING 15 do yes
Henrietta SAMPSON 15 Visitor yes
Ann BERRY 15 F.S. yes

I can't find Jonathan snr nor Maria in the 1841 census. However, there is a death registration of a Jonathan HORN in December qtr 1839 at Basford reg district and also one of a Maria HORN in the June qtr 1840 at Doncaster reg district both of which could be relevant to you. There is an extracted IGI record of a Maria ALLISON, born 18 November 1804, baptised 16 January 1805 at Cathedral St Peter, Sheffield, father John, mother Martha which could prove to be your Maria, especially as Robert ALLISON was shown in the 1851 census as having been born in Sheffield circa 1803. I also forgot to put down that in the baptismal record of Jonathan Allison HORN it shows his father's profession as Schoolmaster - sorry about that.

Hope this helps anyway.

Id like to thank everyone who stepped in to help on this trail. Unfortunatly I lost my uncle on Tuesday, and I simply had to take a few days break.

if this is not too late, and this is a very old message, I am also on the trail of a Jonathan Horn[e] and have information on various Jonathan Hornes in the Teesdale area. A friend has just found some information and passed it on to me that definitely links a Jonathan Horn in Doncaster in 1831 to the Teesdale Jonathan Horns.
If you are still interested please email me
