Jane Briggs age 37

Eliza Briggs age 11

Sarah Briggs age 1
Jane Ailmore age 71

Page 8

Lucys marriage certificate will confirms father name and occupation.
Good post Julie, swag of them in 1841 and no Lucy, unless she had another name, Lucy a nickname?
Can't think of anything else.
1861/81 her birth is 1820/22
Can't find in 1851

There is a tree on Ancestree giving mothers name as Jane Ailmore/Aylmore. c1803.Greetham.

Married Thomas Briggs - 1819. Greetham, Rutland.

If you notice, there is a Jane Ailmore aged 71, in Julies post of the 1841 census.

You'll have to satisfy yourself that this is correct with your own research.

You could try here for answers. http://lrfhs.org.uk/
