Can't find Jane in 1841 however I have found.....

Jane Cooke baptised 16 February 1802 Anstey parents Thomas and Eleanor

Daniel Heggs baptised 1802 Newtown Linford parents Thomas and Sarah

Daniel and Jane Heggs baptised the following children

Maria 20 April 1823 in Anstey

Hannah 5 November 1827 Newtown Linford buried there 10 February 1831

Hannah 27 March 1832 (I am guessing this is Jane Anna)

Jane Heggs wife of Daniel buried 13 September 1835 in Leicester aged 33. Abode Barkby Lane

I cannot find a burial for Daniel but I do not think that the one you have found in 1837 is correct.

Jane Hannah Scoffild b. 12 Mar 1833 c. 5 Jul 1857 St Matthias Birmingham, Warwickshire
Daniel HIGGS & Jane
Batch C041151

"A daughter christened in St Margaret's Church, Leicester 7/9/1825 parents Daniel and Jane Eggs given name Whyborough"

I was given that and have not seen an image. Why do the trees have 1828 then?

Age in shipping record points to 1828 and age at death points to 1830.

The dates in post #5 are burial dates in CofE portion of Waverley Cemetery.
