    Notes 
    • You wish me to give you some information relative to your dear departed Mother - she died when your Sister Susan came into the world. I was a hapless parent with 4 orphaned children. I did all that parental goodness could suggest whilst you were helpless Babes - and I have the consolation of knowing I did my duty. Your mothers name was Susan Noon - she resided with her Brother in law & her sister at Deptford where the two Sisters are buried. There is a Tombstone which has their names inscribed on it - and the tomb is freehold. But I do not know who has the papers relating to it. Poor Capt Friend lost his live at sea several years ago. [Letter 04 Nov 1861, Charles Whitaker to his son Adolphus]
    • With regard to your dear departed mother God bless her memory she was a Terrestrial Angel - too good as every one who knew her said for this world. I shall never cease to mourn for her, as long as I live [...].
      Her name was Noon, ergo as a matter of course her father's name was Noon. But what her mother's maiden name was, I do not know. I do not know what was his calling or his profession - they resided at Deptford. Her father died many years ago - but I do not know when he died. Her mother was alive about 20 years ago - but whether she is still alive I do not know. I should say from her great age at that time she is not alive. She had a brother, a meat salesman, but he also is dead. Her dear sister Jane died 25 years ago in a decline. Her sister's husband was commander of a large merchant ship & he poor fellow was drowned about 15 years ago at sea. His name was Friend. Both sisters are buried in one grave at Deptford. I have no title deeds & never had any relating to the grave. The ground was purchased by the late Captain Friend & he also put up the stone on which is inscribed their names - that is to say the several names of the two sisters - namely Friend and Whitaker. [Letter, 02 Nov 1863, Charles Whitaker to his sons Adolphus & Alonzo]
    • Her sister Jane Noon married Daniel Friend at St Alphege, Greenwich, on 09 Feb 1832; both of the parish; witnesses Peter? Matthias, Susannah Noon. [Parish register]
      Possibly = Jane Friend, death reg Greenwich 1Q1838; or Jane Friend, death reg Newington 3Q1838

    Marriage Type: Not married 
    Notes 
    • Adolphus Henry Noon questioned his father, Charles Peter Whitaker, about the marital status with his mother, Susan, and his response was an injured "of course we were married" but there is no proof of any sort that they were. It is unknown what triggered the desire for Adolphus to question the marriage status of his parents but it would appear he had strong doubts. [Tom Montgomery]
    • I do not understand what you infer by asking me such an extraordinary question "whether your mother was not more or less deceived in relation to the legality of the marriage ceremony" - I answer, certainly not! [Letter, 02 Nov 1863, Charles Whitaker to his sons Adolphus & Alonzo]
