Jane’s middle name let people know who her father was. Two years after her birth, her mother married Jacob MARTIN. It says a lot about the couple’s love for each other – Jane had lived for just a few months. Filey Genealogy & Connections gives Jacob and Annie two sons, Edward and Jacob, but their father is still awaiting his life partner on the Shared Tree.

John PEARSON’s birth year is in cautionary red because his birth year, calculated from his age at death, is six years earlier than a fairly convincing baptism record at Ruston. The Scalby marriage register notes that Jane’s husband was “of Wykeham”, the next village to Ruston. The couple were apart on census night 1851. Jane was a “lodger” with her son Charles in Wenlock Place, Filey. I haven’t looked for John’s whereabouts.

Sarah Edith was Tom SMITH’s sister. Tom had married Hannah Elizabeth ROBSON at St Oswald’s in 1906. She is a woman of mystery for FG&C and the Shared Tree.

The husband of Marian SAYER is something of an enigma too. He was a widower when he married Marian but I have been unable to find his first marriage – and I am not sure when and where his life began. Here is his last resting place –

Sadly, Marian died about six months after she married John Arthur.
