Here is Mana in 1861 - her name changes it seems in every census but I should imagine that most people had no idea how to spell it!

What is also interesting is that there are two boys who are marked as not in household but only by a single / (rather than a // which usually marks a totally different household) George and John Robins both aged 15 (but ages are always rounded in 1841) both born in county - and I found this marriage:

And here is his birth/christening info:

It explains why it seemed like there was one bride missing on the marriage indexes:

Marriages Mar 1876
Falconer Edmund St Giles 1b 653 *
HARDISTY Edwin St Giles 1b 653
Mills Jeanie St. Giles 1b 653
O'ROURKE Edmund St Giles 1b 653 *
Pocock Catherine St Giles 1b 653

* are one and the same!

I would imagine that he and Jane Weston didn't marry properly and they just separated - the wikepedia article states he married an American woman who was his third wife - so possibly may have been Jeanie Mills - not too sure!

I wonder whether J J Meredith's Seaman's record - with the birthdate of 2nd March 1884 - would tally with this birth reg that Sue & Deb found - I know the year is 1885 - but it could be that JJ didn't know exactly what year he was born.

Would be v interested to see who the parents are on that!

Hi Mrs Tibbs,

Isn't it fantastic. Finally, the breakthrough we've worked so hard for!!!

Have you been able to find Jane/Ann Weston/Falconer in 71 & 81?

Just off to look at wikepedia.



Deb:)


P.S Remember that JJ bumped up his age by a year? His age on 91 census and his age on 01 were slightly out. He added a year so he could join the Navy. No doubt, he stayed with the increase in age for life.
