Thanks K found Hannah Jane Crowe born 1862
My gt grandmother is down on the 1861 census as daughter and when I got her birth cert she wasnt I found her on the next census with her mother who had by then married

I think this might be the same case

Just checked the image for 1881 and Hannah J is listed as 11 and daughter, but the order of children (she should be first) does make you think that she could have been Hannah J Crowe.

Edit - However Hannah J Crowe is still with Joseph and Hannah in 1881as below

The 1891 census shows the family with Hannah age 11. Is it the same Hannah? Should the 11 in fact be a 1. It would explain her place at the bottom of the list of children.

Thank you everyone
I will have to go to the library and look at the census image to see if Hannah is 11 months on the 1881 census

I'll save you a trip, will PM the image - she is not 11 months, but I think the second stroke may just be the enumerators line, having looked at previous images in the set.
