For some reason Christiana's children have mmn of ELMS = her mother's married name.

Mark (bapt 29 October 1826) and John (baptised 27 October 1833) were both sons of Thomas and Mary Rigden.

Like you, I am guessing that Mary Jane ib the 1881 Census is the Jane born 1853 to Mark and Christiana
 
Thanks emeltee.

It seems that Mary Jane named her daughter after her mother.

The children Jane and Thomas with mmn Fox are the children of John Steed Rigden and Hannah Elizabeth Fox who married in Folkestone 8 August 1863.

The John Rigden who married Hannah Kemp in 1841 was a Dredger, son of John Rigden also a Dredger.

I don't think either of theses Johns are linked to your Rigdens.
 
Thanks emeltee.

Then this is coincidence. Percy Brown Jarrett married Christiana Rigden - post $#7. So the Rigden family in this census are not connected.
