The Military

Over the last 150 years Folkestone and district has been a very fashionable place to visit attracting many well connected people - as well as being the place where many senior military figures retired when they left service. As we discover significant military memorials or plots we will add them to these pages.

Captain John Rotton

In memory of Capt. John Rotton 36th Regt. of Foot Who died at Malta Nov 7th 1855 Whilst on active service during the Crimean War, aged 28 years. Also of Emma, relict of the above who died at Folkestone May 7th 1868 aged 34 years and is interred beneath this tomb. "For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth" Emma of Priory Gardens, Folkestone, but no other connection to Folkestone that I have found. If this is the right marriage, poor Emma was only married a few months before being widowed. 3rd March 1855 , Manchester John ROTTON to Emma UPTON The 1st Battalion The 36th (Herefordshire) Regiment The following was buried at Malta in 1855: 8 Nov Capt John Rotton 36th Regiment. http://www.maltaramc.com/regmltgar/36th.html
