Thank you very much Vera, that looks like her, obviously a misprint on the
name I had, and I could not find a birth for her anywhere.

Do you happen to know who the husband was of Jane

Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks Report 16 Mar 2013 20:36

Thanks Andy - That looks a good possibility with the name MARIA, one of
her mother's names, and it gives the father's name too which is helpful.

Thanks again

Hollyhocks Report 16 Mar 2013 20:41

No I didn't know the name but on the info Andy has just given it says James
and she is shown as Head on the census of 1851 so possibly a widow ?

This could be her birth:

Births Jun 1842 (>99%)
Beard Maria Elizabeth Westminster 1 405
Not necessarily incompatible with the baptism record posted above.

And maybe her death, which would explain her absence from later censuses:

Deaths Jun 1859 (>99%)
BEARD Maria Elizabeth Rotherhithe 1d 31_

ArgyllGran Report 16 Mar 2013 20:43

Yes, Hollyhocks, Jane is a widow in 1851.

Thank you Glitterbaby, it is very relevant as the William Thomas Beard mentioned
is definately correct, I have his death certificate. He is my 3rd Gt grandfather
who died in 1852.

Thanks again - Sandra x
