Thanks Linda B

Not sure about this one my Mary Alice was born in 1879 so the age on this seems wrong, are you able to look up the one for the Mary Alice age 32 in Bolton Registration District as that one fits perfectly.

Sorry Christine...this is the only 1911 I can find on Ancestry. According to the census image they had been married 4 years.

I would say that Linda had found your couple!



SylviaInCanada Report 1 Feb 2013 04:19

Note ............. we are both looking on ancestry, not FMP


Ozqld Report 1 Feb 2013 04:22

Firstly apologies Linda B
I'm getting so confused with these Jones, I have two brothers who both have a daughter Mary Alice Jones the one you found for me on the 1911 is the daughter of George, your findings were correct, so sorry my mistake the penny has just dropped with me.

Sylvia its possible that the 1911 for the other Mary Alice Lane with husband Robert is also mine and her father was William (brother of George). I'll do some research on this one. It may be that both Mary Alices married into the Lane family.

Apologies once again Linda B and thankyou both for your help.

Regards Christine

Thanks Flip
I've been at work, only a short shift though. Will research deaths just to rule them out and if no luck there I'll go through the marriages.

Regards Christine


Flip Report 1 Feb 2013 12:51

Is it William or George's daughter Mary Alice Jones you are more interested in and approx when was William's daughter born?


Ozqld Report 1 Feb 2013 14:09

Hi Flip

George Jones daughter Mary Alice Jones b. 1885 was the one who married William George Lane.

My GGGrandfather is William Jones (brother of George) he also had a daughter called Mary Alice Jones who was born in 1879 on the 1881 census she is Mary Alice born in Swinton 1879 age 2 however on the 1891 census she is Margaret Jones born 1879 in Swinton age 12, have not found her on the 1901 census so she must have died or married I've not found anything yet.


Ozqld Report 1 Feb 2013 15:20

Well everyone I haven't found a death but have found a possible marriage:

Mary Alice Jones and Samuel Marsh JAS 1897 8d 164 unable to find this marriage on any other site but Ancestry.

Have found this family on the 1901 census and it looks to be the right one to me.
Source Citation: Class: RG13; Piece: 3751; Folio: 99; Page: 9.

Could someone do a search for Samuel and Mary Alice Marsh on the 1911 for me please.

Thanks Christine

Thanks Flip

That is the 1901 Census that I found, would someone be able to follow on and find them on the 1911 for me please.

Thanks Chrisine


SylviaInCanada Report 2 Feb 2013 01:30

why would Alice Marsh b.ca1900 on the 1901 Census be registered with mmn Jones?????

IF this is Samuel and Mary Alice that Christine found the marriage for, they were married in 1897.

I can find no trace of any of them on the 1911 Census
