I thought Shardlow was Derbyshire and Castle Donnington in Leicestershire

GlitterBaby, I checked Genuki - it has Castle Donington under Shardlow until 1938, when it transferred to Loughborough.

well didn't she become Jane Shorrocks? and could Mary be a daughter of hers?

brummiejan

brummiejan Report 22 Apr 2013 00:10

I have found William and Jemima but no Jane with them. William is a sawyer if that helps. They are on census 1851 onwards so no question that Jemima re-married after Jane was born.
