Could someone see if they can find this lady on the 1861 or 71 census please?
Name was Ann Jane Penny and she was born 1802 in Greenwich Kent.
She is on the 1841 and 51 living in Greenwich with her father George and his 3 nephews.
Also,she died in 1876. Would there be a probate record for her,if she left a will,of course?
Thank you
