  1. Oh, and coming back on the first query, John Vaughan did have a son, but I think that Bolckow died childless (altho married twice)

  3. According to my research, Bolckow had no issue of his two marriages. His heir, nephew Carl Bolckow, had descendants including males with the name Bolckow who may be living today.
    John Vaughan had one surviving son from his first marriage, Thomas Vaughan, who had two daughters. One daughter had two sons who were killed in action in WWI without issue. The other daughter married, in 1880, and I cannot find her after the 1881 census. On the face of it, it appears that Vaughan has no known living descendants. He adopted his second wife’s three children, all of whom took Vaughan as their family name. The two daughters had descendants, none of whom have the family name Vaughan. I cannot find if the adopted son, William Vaughan, had children. John Vaughan had two brothers, both of whom have living descendants.

  4. Family folklore has it that we are decendants of John Vaughan. My father was born in Stockton and was Cedric Anthony Vaughan Johnson.
