Hi, I've been trying to follow Jane's life. I think her year of birth is correct, her parents were John & Jane. I've traced her working in domestic service in 1881, still in Oxfordshire. Through bmd I've found a marriage to Charles Tollett in 1887 (assuming I've got the correct Jane Brown), then the trail goes blank I'd appreciate any assistance anyone can give with look-ups etc.

many thanks

Angela

Hi, it could be....but it would've made her a mum at 16 and I found her on the 1881 census as a single girl working in domestic service. Does it show Jane as being born in North Leigh?

thanks

It's a different Jane Brown, the parents of mine were John Brown b 1823 North Leigh again and Jane Taylor b 1836, Kingham, Oxon. Thanks for looking though!

Mike, that marriage looks like a possibility and definitely the correct names for the parents.

Mike that's definitely Jane's family - Emily Ann is my gr gradmother. After John they had Charles and Elizabeth. I think there was also a baby Ann who was born and died in 1859. Thanks for all you help looking

The marriage cert would confirm if correct Jane Brown
