Jane BROCKBANK

Hmmm... Betsy not Betty, I wonder if that'll impact on what we've found so far, as there is no indication that either parent had died :rolleyes:

Jane Brockbank
Baptism Date: 28 Feb 1861
Parish: Bolton, Lancashire, England
Father: William Brockbank
Mother: Betsy Brockbank
Register Type: Bishop's Transcripts
Reference Number: Drm/2/31
[Father = Shoemaker. Jane's age = 26y]

Also on same day: Mary aged 29y and Ellen 22y. They are all living in Great Bolton.

Let me know if you want the images, Dave.

Thanks Geoff.

Baptised after her marriage ?

Marriage: 6 Jun 1852 St Peter, Bolton, Lancashire, England
Thomas Thornley - (X), Full Mechanic Bachelor of Great Bolton
Jane Brockbank - (X), Minor Spinster of Great Bolton
Groom's Father: Jeremiah Thornley, Mechanic
Bride's Father: William Brockbank, Shoe Maker
Witness: William Mather, (X); James Liptrot
Married by Banns by: C.R. Pilling Curate
Register: Marriages 1851 - 1852, Page 124, Entry 247

Do we have 2x William both shoe makers?

This is not clear cut at all.

Age fits for Mary, Jane and Ellen.

1841Mary Brockbank 10
Jane Brockbank 7
Ellen Brockbank 3

Yes, email the image thanks Geoff.

The ages fit too well not the be them.

So William & Betty/Betsy in 1851 ??

Find their deaths and explain these:

Deaths Dec 1845
BROCKBANK Betty Bolton 21 58

Deaths Sep 1847
Brockbank William Bolton 21 57
 
Deaths Mar Qtr 1864
Brockbank William Bolton 8c 224

A death for Betty/Betsy is a problem.
 
An age for one:

William Brockbank
Gender: Male
Burial Date: 09 Jul 1847
Burial Place: Bolton-Le-Moors, Lancaster
Age: 64
Birth Date: 1783
Batch: B015792
 
Looking for 2x William born 1781 - 1798 I can only find one in 1841.

I can't find the one who died in 1847 in 1841.

Perhaps Betty did die in 1845.

I'm still inclined to go with parents deaths in the 1840's at present. It's not unheard of for 'deceased' not to be mentioned on marriage and other documents of offspring. Anything found from 1851 for possible parents has age related discrepancies.

The ages for the three children fit exactly as per 1841 - 3 and 4 year diff.

Is the 1841 image clear for William age 50 and Betty 40?

I still can't find the one who died in 1847 in 1841.

If that is correct, Joseph and John's mother would not necessarily be Betsy/Betty :rolleyes:

Thanks Geoff.

Says he is a Bachelor. :rolleyes:

There seems to be no other death so Betty/Betsy died 1845.

That looks to be the marriage of son Joseph.
 
Does not fit with age 50 in 1841:

Deaths Sep 1847
Brockbank William Bolton 21 57
