Pleas can anyone help me to find out the maiden name of Jane Kenyon, [ born 1830 ] also her husbands first name .

On the 1871 census she is living in Guard Street Cumberland with five children, Jane is head [ but it doesn't say Widow ]

On the1881 and 1991census it has her as head and Widow,

I can only find her on the 1871, 1881 and 1991 census.

I don't know how to find her maiden name, or her husbands first name, so I would be very grateful if anyone could help me.

Thank you
Angela

I never expected an answer so fast, and so many.
I will now check it all out and add them to my tree.

Thank you very much.

Yesterday's help with my post was really great - thank you all. It was William Kenyon dob 1830 and Jane Deans dob 1830.

I am looking for help again with William, please.

I have found his death, recorded in Genes Reunited as in December 1860 in Cockermouth, Cumberland. But I have also found a William Kenyon killed 31October 1860 in a coal mining accident in Jane Pit, Workington, leaving a widow and 4 young children. There was an Inquest, recorded in the Carlisle Journal on Friday 2 November 1860, saying the jury had adjourned for a week. Could there perhaps have been a delay in the funeral being held until December, with the death recorded as being in December?

Sorry all that is a bit long winded. What I really would like to find out is could this be the same person - and I need your help, please.

Thank you.

Angela.

Thank you jax.

I now see where I have gone wrong. Genes reunited said event quarter 4 which is right. I tried to double check it with freebmd and it had December. I have just checked it again and it said at the top change of shade means a possible gap in the data, thats where I went wrong . So it is the same person.

Thank you.

Angela.

I wouldn't worry abt the shading. Unless I list all examples of a name, I will get a change in shadings - if I name a rego district, I will usually miss out someone with that name, and so get a change in shading.

To search for the maiden name of a woman who married after 1837, and whose first name you know, enter the male surname and her first name in the appropriate 'boxes' on freebmd.............assuming that the surname of the male is not too common.

Alternatively, look for birth registrations of children, and purchase birth cert(s)

Thank you all.

Yes, she must have been expecting Sarah Wilhelmina when William was killed and maybe at that point didn't even known she was expecting. She must have only been a couple of weeks into her pregnancy. Then for the child to die age 10, so sad.


Thank you again.

Angela.
