Jane Seager's birth - thoughts please


Loyal Member
I have something of a problem with the birth of Jane Seager.

In 1778 I have Aaron Bach, born Oldswinford, Worcs 1748, marrying a Jane Seager in London.
They have the following children in Stepney
Benjamin (Aaron's father was a Benjamin)
Ann (Aaron's mother was an Ann)
Mary Ann

At some point after 1791 Aaron dies. I can't find a death for him but between son Aaron being born in Stepney in 1791 and getting married in 1812 in St Helens Lancs the family move from London to St Helens in Lancashire. I have found marriages for his brothers in the St Helens area. I also have a death for mother Jane in St Helens in 1830 aged 75. This gives her a birth year of circa 1755.

I cannot find a Jane Seager born around that time in London but I can find one born in Oldswinford. In fact I can find two, both baptised 1756. One has parents Edward and Ann, the other has parents Joseph and Mary.

Based on the fact that Aaron and Jane named a son Joseph and a daughter Mary Ann I am leaning towards my Jane being the daughter of Joseph and Mary. Thoughts please.

I then have another problem. I can only find the one child, Jane, baptised Oldswinford to Joseph and Mary. I can, however find a whole family with parents Joseph and Mary being baptised a few miles up the road in Kingswinford, Staffs, along with a marriage for Joseph and Mary and guess what, Mary came from Oldswinford. Do you think it possible that the Jane baptised Oldswinford belongs to the same family as those baptised Kingswinford. I'm getting very confused and I should think you all are by now as well.

I would appreciate any thoughts about this conundrum.
