Jane Marsden married Henry Whitehead in Handsworth 12 December 1836 (Handsworth is about 4 miles from Sheffield)

In 1841 Henry Whitehead was a prisoner in Sheffield Jail.

Re the 1851 Census showing Henry Whitehead with William and Melinda Marsden. They are actually his step children, Melinda is William's sister.

Jane Whitehead died 1850 and Henry died 1853

I can't find Elizabeth Roberts in 1861 or a death that fits.
