Marie Celeste thank you for your reply yes I think you are right there is no more to find out I think all I really want its a photo of her but realise that is out of the question and due to you and Reggie I think my tree is almost complete maybe a Emans or Pollard relation will contact me. I have been in contact with Tess who started the research. Irene Pollard re Jane Pollard nee Emans. We exchanged some photos of Sydney Ratcliffe Pollard and Alice and my Father Richard Lister Pollard and her Grandfather Hilary Pollard Have a good day. :-) :-)

Irene - what do you mean by "find out more" of Jane? Apart from the birth, marriage, census and death I don't know what else there is to find?

Before I start looking for stuff about her side of the family what do you already have?

Could this be the marriage for the parents of the RBP baptised in October 1752?

If so, they cut it a bit fine, him being clergy too!

Shame there's no location given.

This must be right, though, as the grandfather of RBP born 1752 was named as Turner on the 1764 will.

This must be the marriage of Charles Frederick's parents:

It would be this death, I think:

London, England, Deaths and Burials, 1813-1980

Name: Robert Blunell Pollard
Record Type: Burial
Estimated Death Date: abt 1864
Burial Date: 16 Jan 1864
Age: 80
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1784
Parish or Poor Law Union: Brompton Holy Trinity
Borough: Kensington and Chelsea
Register Type: Parish Register

I strongly suspect he may be the son of the RBP born 1753 mentioned above.
