Thanks Geoff but we may be wrong:

Jane Jenkins Head Mar F 38 Blacksmiths Wife Hanbury Worcestershire

1871 Jane is listed as married but no spouse there and marriage for Jane Peacey is well after 1871 census.

Dave
You may be right, just found a Henry and Jane in 1881, he was b. Gloucestershire, occ = post boy. Jane b. Durley, so something wrong. :confused:

If it's the right marriage to Thomas Steel - George is a nephew - then Elizabeth and Henry Jenkins should be children of Richard although census has them born in different counties. I can't find baptisms that fit.


Henry abt 1823 Aston Ingham Herefordshire
Elizabeth abt 1826 St Martins Worcestershire
Henry's mar. to Maria O says his father is George.

Maria died in 1858 and in 1861 Henry is a widower. In 1871 and 1881 he is down as married but no spouse in household.

1871 Spouse is Jane with children/step-children ? (all listed as children).

Jane died ?

1861 - 1871 marriages to a Jane:

Marriages Mar 1861
Jenkins Henry Cardiff 11a 240
Marriages Jun 1862
Jenkins Henry Cardiff 11a 289
Marriages Dec 1867
JENKINS Henry Lambeth 1d 601

Unlikely.
