Well I have managed to find one

Henry Jenkins/Jane Guise Mar 1862 Droitwich 6c 403

They actually married by Licence in Hanbury 2 January 1862. Henry is a Widower, his father was George and her father was William
There is a death for a Jemima Jenkins 11 April 1861 in Hanbury, aged 32. She might have been Henry's wife and the mother of the Jemima born Wolverhampton. I cannot confirm it, one way or the other, the death cert is needed.

There is a marriage Sep 1853 Worcester 6c 421 of a Henry Jinkins and a Jemima Stone. I cannot find a Stone/Gregory marriage. Again, the only way to confirm this is to get the marriage cert.

Henry's surname was written as Jinkins in both the Jemima Stone marriage and the Jane Guise one.
Thanks emeltee.

JENKINS Henry of Deep Dean Walford Herefordshire blacksmith died 25 August 1894
Probate Hereford 1 October to Mary Ann Rash widow. Effects £22 14s.

Nash = Rash ? The image is clearly Rash in the probate record.

I can't find a death for Jane nee Guise before 1891.

Perhaps the 'T' should be an 'F' in 1881 census.

GRO Reference: 1865 J Quarter in DUDLEY Volume 06C Page 153

GRO Reference: 1867 M Quarter in DUDLEY Volume 06C Page 125

Age for William H as 18, a student, is wrong in 1881 census. Perhaps it should be 13.

Henry Jenkins didn't marry Mary Ann Nash - not unless he had divorced 3rd wife Jane, and I don't think he had.

Jane Jenkins, a married woman born 1833 in Worcestershire, appears at 279 Gt Colmore Street, Birmingham as House Keeper to a Thomas T Neal in both 1881 and 1891 Censuses. In the 1901 Census Jane is down as Jane Neal.

Thomas Taylor Neal married Jane Jinkins Sep 1894 Birmingham 6d 30 (What is it with marriage records having Jinkins instead of Jenkins?)

Looks like they waited until Henry died in 1894 before they could marry although in the 1911 Census Thomas states that they have been married 40 years. Perhaps they had just been together that long.

Jane dies 1913 - Jun 1913 Kings Norton 6d 79 age 78

Jane Neal of 279 Gt Colmore Street, Birmingham (wife of Thomas Taylor Neal) died 23 April 1913. Probate Birmingham to Annie Maria Watson ( wife of Edwin Watson) Effects £86-2s-4d

Edmund Watson married Anne Maria Jenkins Dec 1880 Birmingham 6d 232
