    • Jane was at this address at the time of the 1851 and 1861 censuses. She probably remained her until shortly before her death, as on 16 March 1871, in her will, she is described as 'of 27 Ashton Street'. She could have moved a few doors, or the street been renumbered, but I think it more likely that 21 was mis-read as 27 when the register copy was made.

      In 1851 she was shown as of independent means, but had four lodger which must have helped provide some income.

    • Date of 1793 estimated from the date of baptism of first known child and this marriage fits (none to fit in Thornton in Lonsdale).
      From FamilySearch.

      I looked at this family in the hope it would lead me to the marriage of daughter Jane. (I had hoped it would enable me to establish whether the John that Jane married was, as I show, John George, born Teignmouth but I was happy that it was from other sources before I found the marriage of John and Jane).
      Most of this family are known of through being mentioned in Jane's will.
      I am not researching this family in their own right.
