Thanks Geoff.

I'll mark my tree that Jane can't be found in 1851.

Ellen is living next door to Jane in 1861.

Hi Dave,

I think this could be her, and her mother is still alive:

Name: Jane Brockbank
Age: 13
Estimated birth year: abt 1838
Relation: Daughter
Mother's name: Elisabeth Brockbank
Gender: Female
Where born: Hawkshead, Lancashire, England
Civil Parish: Colton
Phillimore Ecclesiastical Parish Maps:
View related Ecclesiastical Parish
County/Island: Lancashire
Country: England
Street address:

Occupation:

Condition as to marriage:

Disability:

Registration district: Ulverstone
Sub-registration district: Cartmel
ED, institution, or vessel: 1e
Neighbors: View others on page
Household schedule number: 17
Piece: 2274
Folio: 261

Elisabeth Brockbank 42
Jane Brockbank 13
Margaret Brockbank 10
John Brockbank 7


I think her age is wrong on the original, it looks like a very bad 18. I don't know the area but does Colton come under Cumbria?? cos this is where her mother was born.

This looks like Elisabeth in the 1861 census:

Elizth Brockbank
Age: 54
Estimated birth year: 1807
Relation: Sister
Gender: Female
Where born: Colton, Lancashire, England
Civil Parish: Egton with Newland
County/Island: Lancashire
Country: England

Hello Amanda,

Thanks for looking.

In 1841 Jane's mother is listed as not born in Lancs, but I don't know where she was born.

Marriage: 27 Oct 1822 St Peter Bolton, Lancashire
William Brockbank - This parish
Elizabeth Berwick - This parish

In 1861, 1871, 1881 and 1891 Jane is listed as born Bolton.

I think Jane's mother died in 1845.

Deaths Dec Qtr 1845
BROCKBANK Betty Bolton 21 58

Miles Stanley
Gender: Male
Christening Date: 8 Jul 1849
Christening Place: Egton-with-Newland, Lancashire
Father's Name: Mark Stanley
Mother's Name: Margaret Stanley

Mark Stanley
Spouse's Name: Margaret Clark
Event Date: 18 Sep 1841
Event Place: St. Mary's Ulverston, Lancashire, England
Father's Name: Thomas Stanley
Spouse's Father's Name: Leonard Clark

That would make Elizabeth's maiden name Clark not Berwick.

Hi Dave,

Well as I didn't know Elizabeth's maiden name it looked right at the time.

Sorry I could not be of any help.

Hello Amanda,

Thanks for looking. Jane is just one of many who can't be found in various census for various reasons.

I could not see a marriage for an Elizabeth Clark to a Brockbank to complete the picture.

Hi Dave,

Well surprise surprise, I have a William Brockbank marrying an Elizabeth Clarkson 1831 in Aldingham Lancashire according to Boyds marriages. This is probably the Elizabeth I found in the 1851 census.
Is it possible William married two Elizabeths?? I cannot see the original because it doesn't appear on Find My Past, but it hasn't been transcribed if William is a widower or not.
It may not be your William, but you can see the confusion.

Hello Amanda,

Yes. It's not really complete because we have no birth/bap record for Jane or for Elizabeth Berwick.

And 1841 just has:

Betty Brockbank 40 not born in county
We would have to account for this one:

Deaths Dec Qtr 1845
BROCKBANK Betty Bolton 21 58

Thanks Geoff.

I think we are back to death for Jane's mother in 1845 and father in 1847.
And, Jane not found in 1851.

Pity we can't find a birth/baptism record for Jane or Ellen or their mother.

We just have Elizabeth Berwick not born in Lancs.

After her marriage Jane shows as born Bolton in all census.

His age is a bit questionable though, Dave..

In 1841 he was 50y, if rounded down that would give a probable DOB 1787-1791, if he was 56y in 1851 a DOB of about 1796 +/-
