Hi GlitterBaby,

Hi Sorry to bother you again with this but can someone please recheck the 1851 census of Frances Wright above and see what relationship is down for the Jane Challand born 1834 Bingham. Frances is related to the Challand's but I'm not sure where Jane fits in and I would if I missed her family off my tree.

Thank you so much for any help.

Hi Patricia,

Thank you for looking, I'll put Jane to one side then in case I come across her again, she may have nothing to do with my Challands then.

Theres a marriage listed for a Jane Challand in Sept 1870 in Chorlton Lancashire.There are 2 choices for her husband,either John Wood or John Kirk.
It may not be your Jane, but thought I'd send these details for you to look at. Pat
