Hi Dave

There's nothing really to tie in Thomas the miner.??

As Jane is on her own in 1930 & 1936 I'm wondering if her 2nd husband died before 1930.

Had a look at the N.S.W Divorces and came across a Jane West JENKINS, coincidence???

0216 1921 JENKINS Jane West JENKINS Joseph


1930 N.S.W Electoral Roll – North Sydney - Roseville
JENKINS Jane West, 10 Bent street, home duties

1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Parramatta - Gordon
JENKINS Jane West, 10 Bent street, home duties

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking. There are several things that don't add up.

1930 Newcastle - Merewether Thomas & Jane JENKINS. I guess that is a different couple.

How can we have 10 Bent St at North Sydney and Parramatta? That would require huge boundary changes for the electorate. I guess it's possible.

You are correct in saying it's Jane's 2nd marriage. It's possible she divorced a 2nd time. She divorced in 1899 the first time.

27336/1940 JENKINS JANE WEST JAMES CATHERINE MARRICKVILLE

I have her death date as 27 Dec 1940 but that does not add up. I'd say from the 1940 reg that she must have died in 1939. No burial or cremation can be found.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

Yes I wondered that too why Bent street was in another division.

Thomas' middle name may be Joseph. Did find this chap on his own, also a death.

1930 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Macquarie - Lithgow
JENKINS Thomas Joseph, 47 Saywell street, Vale of Clwydd, brickworker

1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Macquarie - Lithgow
JENKINS Thomas Joseph, 1 Redgate street, Vale of Clwydd, labourer

25175/1962 JENKINS THOMAS JOSEPH JOHN PATRICK ANNIE MARY LITHGOW

Nothing concrete though to pin this chap to Jane.

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Ok, I'd say Jane divorced again in 1921. Odds against it not being her with middle name of West.

Ok, we can rule out the Merewether connection. This marriage explains a Thomas & Jane in that area.

5616/1910 JENKINS THOMAS PENMAN JANE MEREWETHER


:2fun:

I had queries for five children born to Thomas & Jane 1910 - 1918. All born at Merewether all with mother's name as just Jane.

I've just deleted those 5 from my tree.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. I won't do the other siblings now.

I'll jump to some other part of my tree. What letter in the alphabet would you like? :D

Regards,

Dave
